“Nice, nice and nice”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed here in September 2013. The room was clean and the breakfast area was very homey. The location was out of the way of the crowds, but close enough for an easy walk. If you are driving park in the piazza parking lot, it's a closer walk. Everything was great, but for one small issue: while a limited traffic zone, there is a LOT of traffic on the street in front, especially early in the morning(5 am). It can get loud, but you can just put in your earbuds (like I did) or request the room that is not street side.

Tastefully decorated room in a small b & b... Good location near center. We had a triple room and it was good sized and quiet. We were greeted by a friendly and welcoming person. We parked outside the walls and walked up through the gate. GPS does not help much ., you must go by both d fashioned map and GPS and hoes for the best. Great location, however and a very quiet room made for a restful stay.

Having spent the week down in Marina di Grosseto for a sailing championship (great spot for family holiday), we didn't know what to expect in our move to a city with culture on Saturday afternoon.

Parking - enter from Porta San Marco, remember you can either park in a garage - we chose Parking Duomo for a couple of hours to get our bearings, or the blue lined areas for tourists on edge of the city. The guesthouse advised that Sunday is free parking so we simply had to move the car up past Hotel Athena where there was plenty of parking and pay till 20:00. There is free parking further down the road which you enter Siena from but was longer walk than we wanted.

As for guesthouse, many other have written about it. excellent and go to the Restaurant across the road. Make life easy!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. I only lower it one star because the street was pretty noisy and I was awoken a few times by people talking loudly in the street... I don't know if it would always be like this, or if this was due to the annual Palio festival (which was really cool!).
Breakfast was wonderful, with homemade paninis with ham and cheese (so nice to have a break from all the other sweet breakfasts we got, although that was also available) and this was actually the best hotel cappuccino during our 2 weeks in Italy.
Egisto can help you book an (average) wine tour for a pretty good price, that includes the bus ride and a relatively small group (our group was 8 people) with wine tasting, though there's not actually a vineyard tour (at least not in the Chianti & San Gimignano route that we chose).
I would stay here again.

The B&B is charming, well decorated and very clean. The location is great as it is steps away from the main sites of Siena, and it is just adorable to stay inside the walls. The steps to the rooms are not steep, so no need to worry about that. And the best thing in this hostel is the friendly family that runs it. They make you breakfast in the morning and it was probably the best breakfast we had in Italy. Nothing fancy, actually very simple but great nonetheless. Better than the ones from nice hotels we stayed in. Recommended.

My husband and I have stayed at the Due Porte 3 times in the last 3 years after stumbling upon in by accident, that is after driving to Sienna without booking somewhere to stay and finding it more difficult than we thought! The couple who run the place are very hospitable and the rooms are lovely much nicer than a lot of hotels which have soulless corporate interiors (I don't know what the hotels are like in Sienna as they were all full). Each room is full of period features and furniture with nice ensuite bathrooms. The breakfast is continental but they did have toasted ham and cheese sandwiches with lovely cappuccinos. The fact that we have chosen to stay there ever since says it all.

Staying in the inner old part of Sienna is a must for anyone who visits this magical medievil italian city. Stayed here with my mother for a couple of nights in June 2011 and we were not disappointed. We arrived on a Sat. afternoon (took the efficient trian), hailed a cab and had one of the most unforgettable car rides ever (up the meandering streets to the lovely hotel). Room was quaint, clean and neat and the building is approx. 900 years old - what a treat! Breakfast for Italian standards was also pretty good (they served eggs). Also, very close walk to the centre of the duomo arena. All in all, I would go back.
