“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Within old Siena, the B&B Piazza Duomo is located approximately five minutes by foot from the Campo and the Duomo, very convenient for exploring the medieval streets of the city.
Our room was much larger than expected, clean and well-furnished, and considering the reasonable price of the B&B more than to be expected.
The owner Emanuele was very helpful and gave us tips for two restaurants, both of which were within a short walking distance and offered authentic Sienese cuisine.
The B&B consisted of a few rooms and a kitchen and breakfast area where guests could prepare their own meals. Internet access was availible.
Regarding the parking situation: if you follow the directions to the letter, you will be able to find the hotel, stop in front of it for two minutes to unload and then find the free parking spots mentioned - if they are not already taken. Driving in this medieval city is not simple, however, and signs are not very easy to find. Patience and a bit of humor are a must.
This B&B was quite good, especially for the price, and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed here with our 2 children (11 & 15yrs).The room size was big and the children had their own beds (ie.they didn't have to share a double bed).Great location and very helpful staff. Eventhough the centre of Siena is for local traffic only, you can drive in and park infront of the hotel to offload suitcases for 30minutes. The staff were very helpful and directed us to free parking just outside the city walls (about a 5-10 minute walk away).We would definately stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stayed one night in Siena here. This hotel is great. It is located close to all the main sites in Siena. The hotel is clean, with a big room and comfy bed. We caught the bus into Siena. We had a lot of bags so it was too hard to walk them to the hotel, howerver, if you have little bags you can just walk there. We found a taxi rank after 5 mins of walking. The train station has a taxi rank outside the depot however the bus station inside the walls doesn't. Probably best to take a map of the town if you catch the bus because there is no information place that we could see near the bus depot, I found a map in the subway and took a photo on my phone so as to find the hotel from the bus depot. Emmanuelle was fantastic! He showed us some good local restaurants where we had a nice dinner. The other guys are great too. Stay here if you can :)

If you are driving, this is a nightmare to find parking and unload suitcases! Be wary that only residents are allowed to drive through these streets during certain hours and there are designated garages for parking. The location of the apartment itself is very good. Check in was excellent, Emmanuele was very helpful to take our suitcases up the flight of stairs. In the room, beds are hard on the back but space is good. We used this as a one night stay in Siena and had no issues otherwise.

We spent all of April in Italy primarily in rented apartments, and this was the best. The room and bathroom were spacious and attractive. The beds were comfortable. This is the only apartment we rented that included daily cleaning. As advertised, it had a kitchenette which was fine for simple meals. The apartment looked out on an peaceful courtyard. The B & B part is across the street, and we had a group of friends who spent a night there. There was no courtyard but the room was large, clean and attractive. As Jean-Marc D stated, the four guys that run the place are personable and helpful; carrying luggage, recommending restaurants, calling taxis, and so on. We felt like they wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. This is so at odds with the "Not what I expected review" that I find it hard to believe.

We've lived, rented, and traveled in Italy over 30 years and this was one of the best accommodations we've stayed at. First, the management (shared by 4 very savvy guys) is extremely helpful and thoughtful--everything from personally experienced restaurant recommendations to fixing shutters, bus schedules, calling taxis, etc. And the location is excellent, very central but 2 minutes away from the hordes in for a day visit. We stayed in a one bedroom apt. with a sofa-bed for our son. It had a garden courtyard on two sides (I believe it was unit 1)--one side was communal and the other was private. We loved it! It was quiet and beautiful. Bathroom was newly renovated, as windows and shutters. Daily cleaning was included in the rent. The entry definitely needs renovation, but most entries in Italy do!

The B&B shares an entrance with Hotel Duomo, which is in an excellent location in Siena. There are many shops, restaurants, etc, close by.
We booked a room for our family of four. We had a very large room with comfortable beds but the room in general could use some updating. The furniture, bedding and walls are in need of some care.
The room was located in a narrow hallway, which became quite noisy during the early hours. Nothing however, compared to the street noise - the road in front of the hotel was under repair, and at 7 AM power tools and tractors were in full power. We cannot fault the hotel for this, but it was very uncomfortable.
While this is a B&B without breakfast, it supplies a communal kitchen and large fridge, which we did not use, but seemed helpful for some guests.
During our entire stay we were not able to see anyone at the front desk, perhaps we were just unlucky. Only when we checked out we had contact with someone.
Also, we were not able to locate the garden that is pictured on their site, we assume it was at a close location (???). But we just didn't really like that during our stay our room didn't get clean, nor our beds were made. We certainly expected more service from them.

Thank you for let us know your opinion about our B&B, on April there were works on street so stalloreggi street that is usually an alive area of siena, turn to be quite noise we are really sorry about such of issue and we hope to have the chance to welcoming you again in our B&B in a quieter room, such of our studios or one bedroom apartments which are the only one that have access to the garden, as shown on our booking.com profile or on our web site, we few euros more you can have the one of our one bedroom apartment, with garden access, and all the services that the rooms have, including the cleaning service that take place every day, and every 3 days our staff change the linen and bathroom towels, unless you request to not be disturbed for the cleaning service, however our staff is always available during our opening time(8:30am - 7:00pm) for all your needs and when we close the office we provide an emergency phone number that all our customers can call for keep in touch with us.
