“could be much better with little more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The Palazzo is quite well situated in the center of Siena, my choice was for the parking as I wanted to avoid leavin the car in some unsecured parking. The hotel staff is quite arrogant and not really helpful. The rooms are nice as they maintained the old supremacy but the beds are quite uncomfortable. No restaurant, only a little breakfast served outside and should really be given some thoughts . The place is expensive. Would not recommend it .

We just spent two nights at Palazzo Ravizza and it was a pleasure to come back again. We can recommend room 5 (junior suite). We were as last time fully satisfied: big classic room, elegantly furnished, outstanding view on the hills, nice breakfast on the terrasse, ideal to chat, contemplate nature, read and rest before or after exploring the neighboring main historical places. To be recommended.

very good location -- center of the city, walking distance to the Church, etc. while free private parking easy to get out of the old city as well

cozy and friendly -- free internet, free coffee, library, very nice public area with piano, etc, home-feeling decoration, very good for family and longer stay

very nice garden with a stunting view of the back end of the city -- rural hilly and village scene

good price in general

for those who look for better quality room / facility -- sure room to improve - but for mass and above, overall good value for money

wonderful restaurants and good shops near by

lastly, a place with a very interesting history

If you want a hotel with free parking and wifi, within easy walking distance to the Campo and Duomo, Palazzo Ravizza fits the bill. Our rooms on the street side were clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet in the garden was very good. And the ladies at the front desk were very helpful in giving directions and making restaurant reservations. But the bathrooms definitely need updating to merit a 4 or 5 star rating. The folding shower "enclosure" sitting atop the porcelain tub didn't do a very good job at keeping the water inside. The built-in clothes line was broken in the kids' bathroom, which was unfortunate because we had a number of items to hang dry after doing laundry at the local laundromat. (The hotel's laundry woman had the day after our arrival off -- a Wednesday, which I found odd -- and we really couldn't wait). As for air conditioning, Siena was approaching 100 degrees during our stay. We had to set the thermostat at the lowest temperature and highest fan settings possible just to keep our room comfortable, and our rooms were on the street side facing north. (The garden rooms, which face south, must be even warmer). Clearly we were pushing the ac capacity to its limit. Also there is no one to assist with luggage upon arrival. Finally, I read some reviews complaining about the difficulty of driving to the hotel. If we had relied solely on the hotel's directions, we might've had similar difficulty because we didn't see the signs mentioned in the directions. But fortunately we brought our Garmin nuvi, for which we had purchased the Italy map on Amazon, and had no difficulty whatsoever in driving to the hotel or finding the proper gate into Siena.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are cooler in summer.

When booking hotel in Siena, I was looking for free parking, free wi-fi and central location. All that you can find in Palazzo Ravizza, plus wonderful garden with amazing view. Breakfast is offered in garden, so that gives extra charm to that hotel. Hotel is a bit old style, but authentic.
Hotel has private secured parking lot (they will give the directions after check-in) and it takes appr 10 by foot to the Siena Palio.
We stayed only for one night, so we took the only available loft room. As it is located on attic and doesn’t have elevator access, it might be not the best option for longer stay and with big luggage. For us it wasn’t problem and also loft room was very convenient. Enough space for luggage, very comfortable beds and nice view over the rooftops. Air-conditioning worked well and the only sound we heard was from church bells. Two bottles of water as courtesy from hotel were waiting in hotel room when we arrived. Small thing but highly appreciated in +36 degrees Celsius.
Bathroom (with shower) was average, but provided olive oil shampoo which was better than those I get from salon. Wi-fi worked smoothly, bit challenging to find sockets for all adapters (iPhones, tablets etc).
Breakfast was modest, but fresh and tasty. Coffee was served from self-service machine and had acceptable standard. Still - for one morning it was OK for me, but for longer stay I would have started to miss real Italian coffee.
I loved our stay in Palazzo Ravizza and I was sorry for staying only one night. Good service (we were able to keep our car on parking space after check-out) and extremely romantic garden make it perfect for Italian holiday.

Room Tip: Room with a garden view could be wonderful

What a wonderful place! Inside the walls of Siena and a few minutes walk to all the sights in the city. we had the tower room, which had the most amazing views over the Tuscan countryside and the garden of the hotel. The room was comfortable, with cold water and air con. Breakfast was great - eaten in the garden overlooking the views. The staff were extremely helpful - recommending, and then booking supper at a local restaurant, and even sorting out with the police the fact that we had driven in through the wrong entrance and so were liable to a fine.
We will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the garden
