Anisa is as wonderful as all of the reviews say that she is! She was very helpful and explained everything - it is very obvious that she loves her job and Siena! When the internet wasn't working, she called a technician and even spent over an hour trying to reset the different routers that were placed near the hotel! We... More

Had two nights here and booked for the price and location, neither disappointed. The B&B is scrupulously clean and has a simple charm about it. Location is perfect and far enough away from the square to not be noisy.The staff couldn't do enough to help us even after we arrived late, would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who likes the...

Simple, clean and basic. Very hard to drive to, but we made it. Anisa is as wonderful as the other reviews say. She accompanied us to the parking garage. Our unit had a larger bathroom than some. Breakfast worked fine, but I had let them know I need to be gluten free and they had some bread/crackers for me. There... More

It's not the Ritz, but it's functional and clean, and oh, what a location! My room opened directly onto the breakfast area, but whatever. Nonetheless, I give this place an easy four stars. The delightful Anisa gets six :-)

The place is quite simple but clean and sufficient at the same time. As central as it could be. Perfect if you need a base in the centre of the city and will be doing sightseeing. The reception is in the office across the road. Girls working there are very friendly and helpful.

Anissa was very helpful seems like she really loves her job, you can ask her about everything and she will be more then happy to help you. She... More

This is an overdue review. We were there at the end of September-beginning of October, 2013. Our double room overlooked the Torre di Mangia. We had to pay extra for it...I wish we had not! For the 2 consecutive nights we had to endure extremely loud music and celebrations in front of our window, plus the lack of privacy. The... More

Stayed three nights here and had a very nice experience. The location can't be beat. Anisa was an excellent resource and very engaging. The breakfast has gone the way of many Italian hotel breakfasts: packaged breads/sweet rolls/cakes, coffee from a Keurig-like machine, yoghurt - just plain blah, actually. But there's enough of it. Our room was very clean and quiet.... More

We arrived in Siena with much to look forward to especially after some friends had spoken so highly about the place. A month or so prior, we decided to book something very central and went for the Al Mercato based on location, Tripadvisor reviews and price (Doesn't everyone?). Anisa was very helpful with instructions of parking and directions. We booked... More

We stayed in Siena in Sept 2013 at the Al Mercato and had a great stay. The hotel is small and accessed off a quaint, cobblestone street. It was well lit and we always felt safe. Breakfast was adequate and really an excellent value in this city. We used the laundromat a short 5 min walk away. The attendant, Anais,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Al Mercato B&B is located in the historic center of Siena, just a few steps from Piazza del Campo and the Duomo, in an ancient palace of the XII century. The couple Fabio and Carla have personally followed the recent restoration of the residence, executed with the total respect of the original structural features of the ancient palace. In our rooms, equipped with private bathroom with shower, you will also find the air conditioning and the free Wi-Fi. The windows open onto the picturesque Piazza del Mercato with a beautiful view of the Palazzo Pubblico and the Torre del Mangia. Buffet breakfast is served every morning in the dedicated room and it is both Italian and continental style. At our restaurant "La Finestra" in the Piazza del Mercato, you will find a typical Sienese menu at a special price. Possibility of half or full board. Possibility of free parking 2 km from the B&B (bus ticket offered), or private garage. ... more   less
