The only thing you have to leave behind are your worries (hence the name of the hotel). A charming surprise for top quality, service, charm and individual service. Rooms are individually appointed and some of them offer breathtaking views over Siena and the surrounding countryside. Service is unhurried, efficient and charming. The lovely gardens make for excellent relaxation and the... More

I have been staying for 6 weeks in a tiny cottage in a garden with basically no amenities, mosquitoes, a backed up toilet and broken shower, cooking on a 40 year old hot plate and made some really great meals and was pretty satisfied. I only say this, because when I say the food here is inedible, I really mean... More

Stayed there for 7 nights, mid October. Very warm welcome from reception staff. We stayed in a room in the annex, the room was adequate, but not suitable if you have mobility problems. The bed was upstairs on a mezzanine, with the bathroom down the stairs. The wooden steps were quite slippery, and great care needed in the middle of... More

I stayed here for 3 nights during my last visit to Sienna! It really is a charming little hotel with an excellent restaurant! The terrace & grounds are beautiful! It's in a lovely location in a quiet neighborhood just outside of the historical center of Sienna. We had a lovely large double room with a view of the garden. I... More

Stayed there only overnight. Experienced a very welcoming athmosphere. All is abit "old fashioned". Room were smaller than expected and different to the picture. But, that really did not matter, as the rest made up for it.

The hotel is on the eastern outskirts of Siena, in a quiet neighborhood, within a private garden. The property is convenient for guests with cars who plan to explore the region, but inconvenient for guests who want to spend more time in Siena itself - a 15 minute drive to one of the city parking lots or a 15 euro...

This was our second visit but our first was about 30 years ago but this visit was just a magical as our first. We hope to visit again and hopefully we don't wait so long next time. Lovely villa that has maintained its elegance. Service is wonderful with a very caring staff. I highly recommend this hotel.

Villa Scacciapensieri is an old-school hotel in the classic European manner located just outside the city center. While the hotel boasts a tennis court and outdoor swimming pool, the grounds are geared more towards lounging. There are many places to simply sit and take in the beautiful surroundings, and the garden is just lovely. It is easy to imagine yourself... More
