Incredible location in center with main duomo and baptistery outside your window! Ask for the 'Pope's room" for a special treat, where Pope Alexander VII stayed. The hotel provides convenient shuttle service to the center of this difficult-to-drive-into town, and you can leave your car outside the city walls. The host is enthusiastic and very friendly with good English. You... More

We loved our room so much and were excited to hear the history of the building. We were shown the secret passage used by pope. The location was excellent, across from Battistero and Duomo. But what impressed us the most of was the service, it was way above and beyond our expectation. We had planned to stay only 1 night... More

Giovanni is absolutely lovely and helpful. Great check-in and check-out despite our late arrival. The rooms are all beautiful and different with a great comfort and elegance. Very central and they organise your parking as the city is car-free. Top B&B for top destination! I absolutely recommend!

Il Battistero was a great choice for our night in Siena. We spent a lot of time trying to find accommodations in the heart of Siena that were relatively convenient to parking. The B&B is about a 5 minute walk from the top of the escalators that take you up from the Santa Caterina parking lot (on Via Esterna di... More

Il Battistero is small family owned and run B&B located in Piazza San Giovanni, right on the steps of Cathedral. The historical Piazza Del Campo is just a two minute walk and everything else is a short walk away. The B&B is part of a family home that has been in the family since the 15th century and way back...

Siena was the last stop of a two-week trip to Italy. We were greeted by Josh who instantly made us feel comfortable upon our arrival. While we had exceptional interactions with all of the other staff, the heart of this B&B resides with its proprietor, Giovanni. He went above and beyond to make our stay exceptional, from arranging dinner reservations,... More

We were so pleased after staying here. The staff, especially Gemma, was so friendly that we didn't want to leave. The rooms are very comfortable and I love the capability of closing shutters so the room remains dark at night. You really can't go wrong here. They provided great information regarding restaurants, etc. They also speak english and helped with... More

Sometimes you just get lucky when you make your travel selection for lodging. Of course Trip Advisor is helpful, but nothing compares to having every possible expectation to be exceeded... this is the case for Il Battistero Siena B&B! I spent 8 nights there with my Dad recently. Giovanni and his Mom were so wonderful and helpful from the moment... More

We loved staying here, the room was beautiful, amazing balcony and view. The owners couldn't have been nicer, honestly truly very special people. The history of the building and the family's history make this a once in a life time stay. Highly recommend you book today and don't look back you won't find a better location, right in front of...
