“Solo Female Traveller”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2014

GREAT location but room
shabby and cold. Was told that by law hotels in Italy can't put the heating on till 1st Nov??! Sheets and pillow cases were clean but blankets and bedspread were musty. Shower didn't work properly and hairdryer was broken. Chambermaid was the rudest person I have encountered in Italy, maybe she was just having a bad day!
Reception staff friendly enough.
No tea or coffee making facilities anywhere in the hotel.

Hello,
thank you for your review, I would like to apologize for my chambermaid's behaviour, about the heating it's sadly true but now everything works fine, I guess it's because in Italy we must buy gas from an abroad country as we do not have our own.

regards
Leopoldo

Friends of ours were on a biking tour of Tuscany and staying in one of Siena's five star hotels, too big a budget for us. We found the Piccolo Hotel on-line and with its close location to the Pizza del Campo we thought it would be perfect. It was. We were greeted by Leopoldo, very friendly and found our room to be quite spacious and very clean. The first floor also has a "lounge" for the guests to relax outside their rooms, nice touch. We visited our friends in their five star hotel, a much farther walk from the main piazza and found their room to be smaller, although it was decorated "European ornate". This room cost 5 times what our room did. Do the math, stay at the Piccolo and enjoy everything Siena has to offer.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room facing the front street, with the window open, a bit too much noise, but there i...

This was the best location of anywhere I stayed in all of Italy. Literally steps from Piazza Del Campo which is the center of everything in the city of Siena. The people are friendly, the service is fine and though a truly budget style place it makes the best of everything it offers. The beds are fine, the rooms are clean, the breakfast is forgettable but so are they all no matter where you go. I would return again and again if I could-- book it-- you won't regret not spending much more elsewhere!

The hotel was small and friendly with helpfull english speaking staff. It was very well located, just steps away from Il combo.
The rooms were very basic, it can be better if there can be a small kettle and refrigerator in the room.

The location is one of the best thing with this place. Its practically few minutes from Piazza del Campo. The room is standard and there is a elevator but there are more stairs to room no. 14. like in many places in Italian budget hotels the bathroom is relatively small. Very good Wi-Fi even in rooms away from reception. Matrass is a bit soft.

You can't beat the location--close to Il Campo and easy to find. The wifi worked great, which was important for us. The staff was very friendly, but we had to wait 10 minutes for anyone to show up at the front desk when we arrived to check in. Breakfast was heavy on the breads, but very convenient. The room was noisy at night since it overlooked a busy street, but the AC made it comfortable. The hair dryer was pretty weak in the bathroom, so if you need to use one, you might want to bring your own. Overall, though, we were comfortable, slept well, and were glad to be so close to Il Campo!
