We were lucky to get a last minute room here. It is not fancy, but the room was large and the bed was one of the most comfortable I slept in. (That is, it wasn't rock hard as so many are.) The receptionist is a real gem. Anisa is knowledgeable, cheerful, and helpful. (Elevates a 3* place to 4*). The... More

Unique atmosphere, great location, very friendly and helpful staff! Our room had a small balcony with a great view of the clock tower and the old open market square. It was a bit cold though but the girl on the reception arranged heating system to be fixed very quickly.

We chose this place for its location and the wooden beams. Unfortunately we weren't given the room with the beams that we booked but the room was fine. The location is fantastic but really noisy. There was a party the first night in the restaurant below, then there were boys practising the horn and flags in the market place for... More

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful B+B from the 4th until the 6th of June. We had visited this remarkable town for an afternoon 10 years ago on our first trip to Italy and really wanted to get more of a feel of Siena this time around. As mentioned in previous reviews it has a fantastic location just... More

I would love to give this place 5 stars based on the location and the property manager, Anisa. 2 blocks from the Piazza del Campo it is a glorious location. It's a very old building (either 11th century or 1100's, I can't remember which) according to Anisa. Every building in town seems to be hundreds of years old. So do... More

We stayed for one night on the lower level with a dedicated bathroom outside our room. Aidra was very helpful giving suggestions for meals, sightseeing,etc. Breakfast was good, basic. We loved the location close to the Piazza del Campo. Good value, we would definitely stay here again.

The location was terrific, just next to the Piazza del Campo. The room was clean and spacious in an old building with what I would call "rustic elegance", while the breakfast was decent. Anisa was kind and helpful, helping us even before we arrived by answering right away to our emails. She is from Albania but spoke like a local,... More
