We were here for a week during the summer of 2006 and it was great!! The hotel is located in the middle of the centre in a street next to the famous square. The hotel seems to be very classic from the inside. The rooms are not big, very Italian, but well decorated and clean. You can drive up to the hotel to empty your suitcases, but there will definately be a group of policemen surrounding your car as soon as you drive into the historical centre (that was our experience but it wasn't really a problem). You can come and go whenever you like. If we return to Siena we'll definately stay in this hotel again.
