“Great location and very nice host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2011

We stayed in the top apartment which consists of leaving area, kitchen, and separate bedroom. It was large and very clean. Owners were very responsive to our emails and when we got there helped as much as they could. BB is located 10 min walk from the center.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

We stayed in the top floor flat. It has a large bedroom (1 double, 1 small single), a long living/dining/kitchen area, and a good-sized bathroom. No views, but skylights and windows make it light and well ventilated. The breakfast items provided in the fridge were very good--we couldn't get through everything during our 3 day stay! The place is very clean, fresh and modern, and it is also very quiet. Everything was comfortable and well-looked after. The owner was helpful as well. It felt like a pleasant home away from home. Good location too, an easy stroll to the Campo, and shops and restaurants are nearby.

We had a great stay at this B&B. We thought it would be tricky to find, but we took a bus from the train station, and the stop in town is literally just a block up the road from La Coperta Ricamata. Nice location, with about a 10 minute walk to the main square, and it's kind of tucked back in a quiet spot and secluded from the noise. Our room was facing the street, but we never heard any kind of traffic or people noise.

The owner was so friendly and incredibly helpful right from the start. The room was adorable and was exactly what I would expect for a B&B in tuscany in terms of decor; it was very spacious and cute, and even had a little balcony. The breakfast is very nice and is plenty sufficient to get you going on your day. My only complaint is that the bed was not very comfortable and I didn't sleep well. This was unfortunate because everything else about the place was perfect.

This was a great B&B in Siena. The owner was so kind to us and helpful. We only stayed 2 nights in Siena at the end of our honeymoon but it was very nice. The room had a small patio out of it and was very comfortable for us. The only negative was it had the tiniest shower I had ever been in! But, other than that, it was such a great stay. I would definitely recommend it!

This B&B is definitely a good place to stay in Siena. While not fancy, it was exceptionally clean and comfortable, and the host was very friendly. She wasn't fluent in English, but she spoke enough to get by and she was very eager to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast was fine, the location was excellent and the surrounding area was quiet and well-kept. We will stay here again the next time we visit Siena.

Okay, the B&B is in a good location, though DO NOT try to drive up to it. There are traffic enforcement cameras restricting access, you dont want a fine on your hire car do you?) .
The incident that made me leave this review is:
WHY was it so inconvenient for the owner to allow us to leave our bags in a safe place when we checked out and our train was not leaving until the afternoon? We had to plead with her to allow us to leave them in the semi secure B&B corridor. ????
But like I said dont let this deter you this needed to be said as critical feedback.
And aslo...Not quite too bad but note taller person(not too tall really)but
Do quiz the owner on bed size before you book. Because the owner has placed a bed in the room we had that was only suitable for people below the height of 5'4'"(160cm). This is not acceptable. Lying in the fetal position is nice, but not all night. Though it is more relaxing then when your feet are dangling in cold space beyond the bottom of the bed.
Overall the B&B is clean with a good breakfast, though get up early if you want your coffee hot from the flask(What is this with Italian hotels not giving you coffee making facilities? Which they dont at the budget end).

copertaricamata, Proprietario at B&B La Coperta Ricamata, responded to this review, November 13, 2010
I am sorry to reply to this comment, but I have to do it: it is my reputation. The customer has booked the room smaller and cheaper: the reservation had indicated that it was a french bed and the room was 12 m2 ("Double Single Also use french bed (12m2)"). The bed is 190 cm long, like all standard beds, and 140 cm wide, more or less like a queen bed. About the arrival at B&B, if the customer had asked, I had permission from the local police to get them into the z.t.l. and leave your luggage, as expected: there is no risk of penalty! For storage, it might has been a misunderstanding, as all customers who request to leave luggage in the hall, as well as the client in question; perhaps, because my English is not so fluent, we have not understood: I'm sorry and I apologize on this. For breakfast it happens to end up in the coffee thermos: I live downstairs and just call me, as it has sometimes happened with other guests, to have more.
Finally one thing: why the customer, who remained three nights, he has waited on the morning of departure to make his criticism, making impossible to find any other solution?
Unfortunately, such reviews give wrong informations and make in trouble those who trying to do his best to offer a service as close as possible to the expectations of customers.

Luciana was kind and very welcoming. Our room was huge, tall ceilings and large bathroom! Very clean and I am particular! The location was great. The breakfast table was right outside of our room, but we were never disturbed by the noise from other guests, as others have mentioned. We had the air conditioning on so maybe that is why. I thought the breakfast was very nice. Better than most B&Bs in Italy. Our stay here was so pleasant. I truly wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Luciana!! If we are ever in Siena again, we will be staying with you!!
