The restaurant staff was friendly and provided good service. The food was good to very good. The hotel is a short rise outside the city wall but we liked the location and the... More

We stayed at Villa Scacciapensieri for 7 nights in late October of 2013. While it had a lot of good things going for it, I got the distinct sense that this hotel's better days were behind it and management needs to work on some issues sooner than later. This was one of the more decisive reviews I've written, and I... More

We stayed at this property several years ago. I was not active on TripAdvisor at the time, so was not able to review it at that time. But, I think about this inn often. For example, we had an early train on the morning of our departure. The front desk associate insisted we eat some sort of breakfast, even though... More

This hotel is very difficult to locate once you get off the highway. The place itself is very attractive . Our room was poor but after a day of stressful travel we weren't about to complain. I did have a suspicious itchy feeling after sleeping here a couple of nights. There were ants in our room. Bruce was great, he... More

Positives: Lovely old Italian villa. Gardens are nice. Has English news channels - many Italian hotels do not. The staff are friendly and helpful. They originally gave us a twin bed and we wanted a double bed - but they changed it quickly when we pointed this out. The breakfast is very good and the Italian guy going around with... More

This was a great deal on booking.com I got a 200 dollar room for 116. It was hard to find but with gps it's doable. Wonderful room with gardens. It has the perk where you can get to town with the bus right in front of the driveway. No driving into town. Beds are comfortable and has breakfast With the... More

We spent a couple of days at this lovely villa while visiting Siena and had a terrific time. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the locatioin was very convenient for access to the center of Siena. The staff had a strong focus on ensuring that we enjoyed our visit and were a real pleasure to deal with. Bruce... More

The staff here is so caring and helpful! They really know their stuff! It's a little ways out of town but you get gorgeous views and the downtown is just a short bus/cab/car ride away (5-10mins). The grounds are very beautiful and so well kept. We were really happy with this choice

I stayed at Villa Scacciapensieri with a friend. We had a room in the annex. The rooms are divided into two floors. Downstairs a small couch and writing area and the bathroom. Don't expect a lot of room. If you like spending a lot of time in the room it's probably too small, but if like me you want a... More

This is the second summer in a row we have stayed at Villa Scacciapensieri and we still love it. There are some minor drawbacks as mentioned by other reviews, the service can be a little gruff and it is located on the edge of a busy road which spoils the tranquility slightly. However, the positives far, far outweigh these minor... More
