“Excellently located, efficient service, great garden!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

A wonderful hotel to base in while exploring Siena on foot. Very effective and efficient staffers. Very gracious owner-host.

Not that it bothered us, but we did not understand the temp control, so the flooring was very cold for us.

We'd like to see improvements in the breakfast selections also.

But overall, it was a great experience.

Dear Sirs,
thank you for your kind review.
We appreciate that you have been well impressed by the staff, location and service!
We would like to explain how our ac wors: our ac system is ecological and silent because cold water flows under the floor. The remote, in each room, allow the guests to set the floor temperature.
Hoping to have you as our guests again soon,
The whole Villa Elds's staff greet you.
Best regards,

We had a lovely stay at Hotel Villa Elda in Siena in late April 2014 . An easy, short walk to the center of the city, it was an elegant mansion turned into a hotel. The location was perfect, actually, away from noise in a quiet, swanky neighborhood. Our room was bright and big and beautiful. The linens were fine as were all the furnishings. The very best part of our stay were Sarah and Ricardo, who welcomed us, took care of us, and responded cheerfully to any request. We felt as thought we had become friends with both of them in our two-night, three-day stay. We also met the lovely owner of the Villa Elda who visits the hotel to ensure her guests are happy. I highly recommend Villa Elda!

Room Tip: We were in room 14 (I think.. top of stairs to the right and next too room 13). It was a corner ro...

We stayed 3 nights in May 2014.
Villa Elda is located 20-30 minutes walk from most of the Siena sights.
The WIFI bandwidth was excellent.
Our room was very nice and well outfitted. A small amount of street noise would occasionally makes it’s way inside.
The bed was a combination of two twin beds together. It was lumpy and uncomfortable. I did not sleep well. If the bed were more comfortable and the price more reasonable I would rate this place higher.
The staff were exceptional. All were very service-oriented and helpful, although the Russian woman wasn't very cheerful.

This hotel was our 2nd stop in our 25th Wedding Anniversary Italian vacation. We were given a room in the front of the hotel. The room was "squeaky" clean as was the bathroom, with wonderful views from our second floor room at the front of the hotel. The room was just beautiful with high ceilings, a pretty flower chandelier and a lovely wardrobe. We were given a bottle of Prosecco, roses from the garden and gluten free crackers for our anniversary.
The location is in a residential area and it is an easy 10 minute walk to Siena. The staff is great - friendly & helpful. This was the best breakfast of our trip. My husband wrote to them asking if there would be any gluten free options for breakfast and they went and got me some gluten free muffins. Honestly, the best gluten free muffins I've ever had (wish I had written down the name of them.) And, an automatic espresso machine so you can have as many coffees as you wish :)
The garden is just gorgeous with all kinds of flowers, bushes and trees - they have set up tables so you can eat breakfast outside.
You should be an early riser as the bells in Siena WILL wake you up at 7:00. At least they time them so they all go off at once, but, this is nothing the hotel has any control over and it's rather charming actually.
When we sadly had to leave after two days to go to our last stop, Rome, we asked how to get to the train station. She advised us that the best way to get to Rome is to take a bus, that the train would require 1 or more train changes and the bus is much faster. The bus station is about a 12 minute walk and she was right, it took about 3 hours to get to Rome where all the trains were showing 4 1/2 to 6 hours!
Thank you Hotel Villa Elda for a "Dream" stay in your lovely establishment :)
I highly recommend this hotel as a fantastic place to stay in Siena!

Room Tip: The rooms in the front have a fantastic view, however, the rooms on the garden side are quieter if y...

Hotel Villa Elda is north of the city walls just far enough away from the noise and close enough that even with the hills of Siena it was an easy walk. Sarah was great throughout our stay - always trying to anticipate our needs and offering suggestions when they were needed. Accommodations were as good as expected and we'd stay there again

We were so lucky to get in to Villa Elda at the last minute. It was just perfect. An easy walk into the city, lovely rooms with a view of the city. The staff was excellent, all spoke English and breakfast was very good.

After browsing Trip Advisor, we settled on a reservation at The Villa Elda. It is a 3 minute walk into the walled city of Sienna. The staff is incredible. Could not do enough to be helpful. Our room was immaculate with a beautiful view of the rooftops of the city. The bathroom was newly renovated. Although the facility is not large each area is very comfortable. Breakfast was delightful either taken inside or on the pretty patio area. Since our room was on the top floor they helped us up the flights of stairs with our luggage (no lift). I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Elda!

Room Tip: Top floor, front room, beautiful view
