Il Casato Residenza d' Epoca
Ranked #69 of 126 Siena B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Found the hotel online while sitting in a gelateria just off the main square and decided to walk the four minutes over instead of calling. The proprietor was amazingly kind and energetic, touring us around the property, letting us chose a room, offering us a great price for the room and helping us get our car into the city to drop off bags then back to a suitable public parking area. She even set us up with trays of plates, flatware and glasses so we could have a picnic dinner in the garden and the neighborhood /contrada/ celebrated in the street below. In the morning we were greeted with a spread of breakfast and cappuccinos delivered to our rooms!
It is a historic building (or, really, parts of three historic buildings), with some grand spaces and tight staircases. Our room (#3) had an amazing ceiling fresco of putti, and a small bathroom tucked in the corner (per historical preservation restrictions). There are an number of sitting rooms with other frescoes, as well as the garden and a terrace. No elevator, so not for the handicapped or those traveling with heavy luggage. Very central to the top places in Siena, but on a quieter street. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Each room has its own character; consider asking for one higher up if you'd like a view. Note t...

I enjoyed my stay here. I arrived when reception was closed but my key was left ready for me. I loved the quirky decor. It was a little awkward to get my bag up the narrow stairs. There's a delightful terrace with garden. The rooms were spacious and quiet. It is a very convenient walk the duomo and the campo.

We got to Siena late at night, got on a wrong bus which's did not take us straight but roamed around on the hills for one hour. Dragged the bags uphill in the city. Got to the hotel at 9.
Here...the door locked.
After a moment of panic, I see an envelope with my name glued to the door. I open it. Inside a letter and a key.
Nobody sleeps there at night. We need to open and look for an envelope on the desk. We find it. Another set of keys. One is for our room, the others for a secondary entrance.
The villa is empty. Huge, tall, old and empty. It's a 15th century beautiful pallazzo of sorts but no one inside. No one.
We start exploring. My sister is freaked. We find large halls and waiting rooms with antique furniture and high ceilings, paintings and old book cases. Everything is beautiful.
We go up on all 3 floors. A lovely terrace on the 1st floor looks gloomy in the strange light of the lamp posts. We needed two glasses of prosecco to be able to sleep the first night and felt like we were in the first 15 minutes of a freaky horror movies. And it was exhilarating.
The morning came with sun shining through the golden curtains, a lovely breakfast on the terrace and one of the most picturesque locations I have ever slept in.
It was a lovely stay and a wonderful memory to last a lifetime :)

The first thing I experienced, arriving at Il Casato D'Epoca was peace. The hotel is placed in an old monastery, and the atmosphere was just so peacefull and calmning. The decor is pretty, with a lot of old stuff, and imitations of art from famous artists as Botticelli and Da Vinci. Our room had no Real aircondition, but we handled it. The hotel is near to everything in Siena. Especially the Campo, which is just 4 minutes away. The woman at the counter was so nice! From the first Day, she drew a map for us, to get around in the City. She laughed a lot, and made a good mood for all of us. The breakfast is served at your room, and that works so Well.
We would like to go back to Il Casato D'Epoca! :D

Siena is a gem and this small hotel is a gem within Siena. It is a very old building that has been beautifully renovated with spacious rooms and lovely nooks and crannies for reading, etc, both indoors and on lovely balconies and terraces. Breakfast is delicious and brought to the room each morning. The location is perfect, despite being quite a long uphill walk from the bus station. Also, the rooms are upstairs with no elevator, so it's quite a chore to arrive. But it's worth the work. This place is truly magnificent.

Room Tip: Be aware that there is a lot of climbing to do to get to one's room.

Great location and friendly staff. Easy walk to the main square. I agree with the other reviewers. It would have been nice to have someone carry our luggage up to our room. The room was cute and had a beautiful sitting area. Other than the August heat, the room was good!

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms with the sun in the summer ;--)
