The Battistero was perfect for our 5 day stay in Siena. It was very central, with all the major highlights right on our doorstep. Our room looked over San Giovanni square, and we were delighted by the regular street violinist and the bells of the nearby Duomo. The room was spacious and light, and was spotlessly clean.

What a hoot to be able to say you slept in the room that Pope Alexander VII slept in. Well, my son can say that. We slept in the adjacent room and my daughter in the attached drawing room. What we can all say, however, is that the rooms were clean, modern and well appointed and the beds very comfortable.... More

We usually stay in large 5 star hotels, and traveling 100+ days a year I am a very frequent traveler that knows good service and poor service. In Siena I wanted the BEST location and after studying all the options I selected Il Battistero. We arrived as "guests" and within 24 hours we were "friends". Cinzia and Marta made us... More

From first to last this was a great stay. Thanks to the excellent directions from Marta, we were able to find the place no problem even through the winding streets of Siena. Couldn't be in a better location. The owners are charming and very knowledgeable (they should be as their family has lived in Siena for something like 800 years!).... More

Great location, wonderful view of square and church, great italian breakfast, friendly staff, nicely done out room. We had a ten month baby and the staff were very helpful. They provided a travel cot.

And what a location, right next to Siena's Duomo and just a block from the main square. We spent 3 nights here, traveling with my elderly parents, one of whom was not feeling well for the entire visit. The owners of this lovely b&b not only upgraded my parents room, they shared their homemade chicken soup. We could not have... More

It was the service that did it for me. Yet it could have been the extremely spacious, very tastefully decorated room, or the fantastically central location or the lovely view over the red roof tops or the luxuriously comfortable bed or the fabulous bath with plentiful and speedy hot water or the marvellous tranquillity. Sincere thanks to everyone who made... More

To stay in the beautiful city of Siena and to enjoy lovely accommodation, with warm, friendly and gracious hosts, is one of life's true pleasures. Add to this the best location in town and I am sure you will enjoy both your stay and the memories of it, for many years to come.

Wonderful B&B, perfect location, incredibly sweet and attentive owners! We stayed in rooms once used by Pope Alexander VII (we were shown secret tunnel connecting hotel with church across piazza). The rooms are tastefully decorated, the beds are extremely comfortable and the owner, Cinzia, could not have been more accommodating! We were traveling with our 5 year old and Cinczia... More

We could not have been happier than with the experience here. Lovely hosts, and charming room with all the amenities we needed, and an incredible view from the windows of the church that make you feel like you entered a fairy tale.
