“Wonderful, Small Hotel Just Outside Siena City Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

This is a warm and welcoming, small hotel just outside the Siena city gate. The long driveway and beautifully kept grounds provide a sense of seclusion from the activity of center city streets. Sitting with a glass of wine on the terrace during the early evening, you see a classic Tuscan valley spread before you. In the morning, you watch mist rising from the same valley as (weather permitting as it did for us in early October) you enjoy breakfast at one of the outdoor tables. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Lorenzo who provided us with a comprehensive overview of Siena. When a sweater was left behind following dinner at nearby Ristorante Fori Porta (a good recommendation from Lorenzo) the desk manager walked over to retrieve it for us. It was a small gesture, but very indicative of the excellent service and care afforded guests. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Hotel Palazzo di Valle to others.

From start to end of our experience with palazzo di valli, we were treated very well by our gracious hosts.
The room had a beautiful picture perfect view as promised by Lorenzo and we were blessed with beautiful days in Siena as well.
I cannot express how comforting it is to return to a safe, lovely, clean and warm accomodation after a long day of walking, especially in the cold.
The team was very accomodating to our needs and helped us ensure that we had a comfortable stay. It was like returning home every night for the two nights we stayed there.
There was everything we needed for our stay and we could not ask for more.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this place to anyone who wishes to check out Siena. The hotel is near enough to walk to the sights and within close proximity of a very good restaurant (can't remember the name but the team can share with you if you enquire). Not to mention the breakfast has a nice spread too!
So you can be sure you would be well fed, warm, safe and comfortable throughout your stay!
I thank the team for a lovely trip and for their hospitality!

The hotel is situated in a most delightful area, just outside the Roma gate. The views when you arrive are stunning, and the welcome is very warm. Unfortunately, we had a room on the ground floor. The internet did not work, the bathroom was very basic but above all you could hear people above you walking and going to the toilet at night. So my advice is to make sure you request an upper floor bedroom. Equally the hotel is outside the gates of the city and if you don't like wallking, be aware that it will take you a good 20 to 25 minutes to get to the centre, although there is a bus.

Lccation was very easy to find and parking was great. Our room was on the ground floor, but we still had a great view over the countryside. Added bonus was a safe in the room. We had a very nice walk into Siena -- only about 20 minutes. We also took the bus once, buying tickets at the hotel desk. Our hosts were extremely helpful -- answering many questions and giving us some ideas for local travel and sightseeing. Also, the employee in the breakfast room was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was always a treat (buffet style) -- with a hot crossiant delivered to your table. American coffee, espresso or cappuccino were all available.

We definitely hope to return and perhaps make this our base for additional travel in teh area.

My husband and I have stayed in Palazzo di Valli for 4 nights beginning of November. It is an ancient villa outside of the walls of Siena, less than 10 minutes walk to Porta Romana entrance of the old town (it takes another 10 minutes walk to get to the central Piazza). It was a very authentic Tuscan experience for us, especially because it feels like you are in the countryside due to the hotel being located off the main road and having stunning views over Chianti and Valdorcia.

The hotel is a 3 star B&B. Our room (no 27) was very decent, spacious, charming and clean and had wonderful views of the countryside. A little issue we had in our bathroom upon arrival has been fixed right away next morning after we mentioned it to the reception. I liked that this place didn’t try pretending to be more than it is - they stand up to their level and offer good value for money. Since it was quite cool in November we couldn’t take advantage of the beautiful garden and breakfast outdoors, but I can imagine this being a highlight during warm season.

I really have to point out that the biggest asset this hotel has is the client service. Lorenzo and Giacomo, 2 gentlemen at the reception did pretty much everything to keep us happy. They are both true connoisseurs of the area and answered all questions we had as to things to see and visit, recommended itineraries and restaurants and even gave us some history background. It is thus important that you go and talk to them. Although the hotel doesn’t have a bar or official room service, one evening when we got back after a long day out and asked for a tea, we got it right away. What we appreciated most is Giacomo helping us out with an issue we had with our car an hour AFTER we checked out on departure day (we actually came back to the hotel and asked him for help) – he spent a whole hour sorting out our problem, making phonecalls, etc. Bottom line is that this is by far the best customer service I have ever received in Italy.

If I had to find anything I would say could be improved? I think I would choose fresh squeezed orange juice to be added at breakfast.. somehow, when you are surrounded by nature you have craving for natural things :). Btw, do not miss out on the delicious fresh made croissants they serve every morning!

Thank you Giacomo and Lorenzo, we had a great time in Siena and surroundings!

Room Tip: I think rooms on the second floor have more views, ours was number 27 and had a very spacious bathro...

Outside the city walls but a very short walk to the city-- definitely worth it for the gorgeous views and rooms that you get at the Palazzo di Valli.
Very clean room, beautifully decorated, and with an amazing view.
The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly, and knew the answers to all of our questions.

This hotel sits outside the city walls, but is a comfortable 10-15 minute walk--or take the bus! The room was large with a moderatly sized bathroom. The view from our room could not be beat. Breakfast was included and was a substantial European affair. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful in recommending dining locations. Would definitely stay here again--and hope we can!!!
