Athenaeum Personal Hotel, Tuscany Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
An appealing, tasteful and ultra-modern establishment offering comfortable accommodation in quite a handy spot for the sights. Offers a good array of facilities but it’s unsuitable for those in search of traditional character and charm as it has a formal, business-like feel to it. Private on-site parking for a fee.
Uninspiring modern concrete block with aluminium windows and steps up to entrance.
Property type: Hotel
A well-appointed ultra-modern interior has polished wooden flooring, designer furnishings and minimalist touches throughout. A bright and airy bar and restaurant with some booth seating has a large terracotta paved terrace with tables, chairs and some attractive plants overlooking a relaxing water feature. Smart functional lower-ground floor breakfast room and a small games room with a large snooker table.
A rather novel small putting green is located on a first floor terrace.
Area Type: Just over ½ mile northwest of Piazza del Duomo, on busy main road surrounded by similar properties, towards the edge of the main tourist zone with some shops, bars and restaurants in the vicinity. The main train station is ¾ mile away. Bus stop is 200 yds.
