“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

very friendly and knowledgeable owners providing great info about Siena and the surrounding cities, refined design of the rooms and the whole villa, fantastic terrace with views on the countryside, great and abundant breakfast, a lot of character wherever you look, most recommended, only 10 min walking to the entrance in the Siena old city.

Wow! What a great place to stay!

The service was great, the room was big and we sat on the terrace overlooking the hills of Tuscany.

It's an easy 10 mins walk into Siena too.

We loved it here and would definitely return.

We stayed at Palazzo di Valli for two nights at the end of our trip to Italy; most of our time had been spent in Rome. While driving up the long driveway through the beautiful grounds, I could feel myself relaxing. The setting is truly serene--quiet, with scenic views of the Tuscan countryside. Our room was lovely--clean, comfortable, large, and a great view. But as nice as the place is, the staff is what makes it truly special. Every person we encountered worked to make sure we had an enjoyable visit. They recommended restaurants and sites to see in Siena, but also helped decipher the bus schedule to Florence and Rome, and obtained mass times for us on Palm Sunday. They go above and beyond to ensure your visit is a good one. I would highly recommend this small hotel (11 rooms). It is a bit less convenient than the ones near the Duomo or closer inside the city, but in my view, it's worth it. It's not a bad walk, and a city mini-bus comes by every 15 minutes or so,right in front of the hotel (and the hotel sells bus tickets!). If you want peace, tranquility, comfort, and exceptional service, stay here!

This is a pretty place to stay and just how you imagine a traditional Italian house to be. We were greeted by very friendly staff that offered really useful advice on places to see and visit. The views from our first floor room were beautiful, looking out across the Tuscan landscape. The room itself was very clean & spacious, with plenty of choice on offer at breakfast. I found the central heating a little noisey at night, but that didn't seem to affect my partner at all! As other reviews have stated, if you don't mind a 20 minute walk into Siena then this is a great place to stay, but having said that I believe a bus passes by the hotel regularly, so the walk is optional and a great way to burn breakfast off!

We loved our night at Palazzo di Valli. The walk to Siena took about 20 minutes. It is all "uphill" going in, and "downhill" on the way home. The innkeepers were helpful both before and during our stay with everything from public transit instructions to restaurant recommendations. Breakfast was simple and lovely.
Ask for a room with a view. One side of the property looks out over the Tuscan countryside. Waking up with that view was a highlight of our time in Siena.
The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Highly recommended!!!

Palazzo di Valli is not a modern hotel, but it is a hotel in an old 14th century house. That being said it was great. Great views, nice clean rooms and a very helpful staff. They suggested restaurants and even helped us route out a trip through the Chianti region in our rental car. Lorenzo and his staff were unbelievable. Breakfast was perfect. We asked Lorenzo if he were going out to eat where he would go and he suggested 4 or 5 restaurants. We went to one of them twice it was so good. We were there for 4 nights and he suggested where to park when we took a day trip to Florence which worked out great. We were there for our anniversary and our kids emailed him to arrange a fruit baskent and cake and Proseco for our anniversary. We got back from one of our day trips and we were surprised with a huge fruit basket some of it frome their own fruit trees and an awesome cake. The next afternoon after returning from Chianti we asked if we could have a wine bottle opener and glasses. They opened the bottle of wine and brought it out to us with a couple of wine glasses and a bowl of nuts. Very accomodating and a wealth of information. If your looking for a 5 star hotel accomodation wise, this is probably not the place for you, but the charm of the rooms was irreplaceable. We loved it and when we get back to Tuscany we will stay here again. Well done Lorenzo and pass our thanks on to your staff, everyone was wonderful.

We went to Palazzo di Valli for the final two nights of our two-week trip to Italy and realized this was the best time of all. And why? More than anything else, it's because of the people who run this wonderful hotel. All the reviews for Palazzo di Valli demonstrate all the pluses of its beauty, its location, and everything that it has to offer. But what will determine where we go and stay in trips and especially whether we will return is something much more special: it is the love and passion that Giacomo and his staff show for his work and our care. In fact, we truly had the feeling that the entire staff was there just for us! We learned about Siena and came to appreciate what we were seeing there, thanks to Giacomo. We had the most mystical drive to Montalcino and outstanding wine tour set up with our last-minute request, thanks to Giacomo whose fastidiousness made us feel confident we could actually GET there on time. Believe me, no one else would have taken the care and had the patience to understand that we struggle with directions -- but we made it error-free! And I clicked my camera so many times from every spot of the Palazzo di Valli, you'd think someone was tap-dancing, but how I love looking at those pictures now. And yes, the restaurant across the street has delicious selections. What a great hotel. Choose Palazzo di Valli and make your trip magical. We wish you a great stay!

Room Tip: Room 32 has a great view of the Tuscan countryside.
