“A good place to stay near to Il Campo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

We stayed here for one night and thought it was very good value for its position just a few metres from Il Campo. The reception was opposite the B&B and manned by a very helpful girl, with lots of personality and who spoke excellent English.

Wonderful B&B at the city centre. Clean, big rooms, 20 meters from the main square and Duomo. Manager (Ms.Anisa Lipo) is very attentive, knowledgeable, and ready to be helpful.
A bit expensive, but Siena is worth a lot.

We selected this B&B because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. We spent one night in this comfortable, clean and conveniently located B&B, but would have spent longer if our travel plans would have allowed. The B&B is located very near the center of Siena and as such, the buildings are old, but the insides were renovated and extremely comfortable and modern with a touch of the old feeling. Anisa handles the reservations for the owners and she was extremely helpful with everything. There is a small dining room to have breakfast on the property. The breakfast was a typical Italian, but we thought the cappucino was the best!
Room: We stayed in Room #1 which happened to have a balcony. The room was clean, bright, comfortable and kept cool with an A/C. The bathroom was modern and clean. The WiFi worked great (iphone and ipad).
Location: You couldn't beat the location of this B&B. It was only a short one-minute walk from Il Campo (the heart of Sienna), but was very quiet.
We highly recommend this B&B to anybody traveling to Siena for a vacation. Location, Price, Cleanliness and helpful staff make this a perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: If you want a balcony with a view of a plaza, then ask for Room #1.

Our 3 night stay started well. Anisa handles front office tasks from La Piazza Travel, located opposite Al Mercato. We had been in contact by email and as a result, Anisa had arranged for our room to be cleaned first and we were able to access it before lunch. Anisa provided us with a comprehensive overview of Siena and, having determined our preferences, made recommendations on locations to visit. The room itself was modest but comfortable and very clean with a view of the Torre del Mangia and Piazza Mercato. The breakfast was simple, but the young woman supervising (and who also performs housekeeping services) added the personal touch by noting our preferences and ensuring that there were bananas available each morning for us. The central location is unbeatable, providing a base for multiple sightseeing forays and choice of dining options. The in-house wi-fi was not compatible with Apple devices but the wi-fi at La Finestra worked fine. One night was noisy with locals enjoying early Palio celebrations in the Piazza. We would not hesitate to stay at Al Mercato again.

Stayed 2 nights in June. Great location only a 3 minute walk from the main square, Il Campo.
Anisa was very helpful and provided us with some of the history behind the Town Hall and the 17 contratas of Siena, plus recommendations on what to see and do.
Our bathroom was outside the room but it was not shared.
Good breakfast in the lunch room upstairs.
Their restaurant next door was very good also.

This is a charming family-owned hotel right in the center of Siena, located in an ancient house which adds attraction to the place. My room had a wondeful view - on the left I could see la Torre del Mangia and on the right - the house roofs, church and landscape. Very clean and comfortable room, quiet. Just a few steps from Piazza Il Campo. Very nice Bulgarian lady doing the rooms and serving breakfast. The hotel owners (Carla and Fabio) also have a restaurant downstairs (La Finestra) - also highly recommended.
Anisa (charming, smiling, helpful, hospitable) welcomes you at the Reception opposite the hotel entrance. She will provide you with all kinds of information on Siena, its history, places of interest, and will recommend where to go and what to see. I only spent 2 nights there, but would stay there for a week happily. Hope to go back to Siena and looking forward to Al Mercato.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of la Torre
