We had a good stay at this hotel. It's run by one or two people so sometimes you get the feeling that they're a little understaffed when there are multiple guests making requests. All that being said, the host, Eugenia, is super nice and helpful. She gave us a map of everywhere you need to visit and see in Siena, and we loved the city. The shared bathrooms is a hassle but most of the time wasn't an issue. The distance to the bus station was just short enough for a walk and not quite long enough

We had a wonderful 4 night stay in Siena at Albergo Bernini. The hotel is very easy to find from the town's main bus station. The view from the terrace is amazing! Room 11 is a great family room with the best view, but has a shared bathroom. The hosts were very friendly and accommmodating. We look forward to our return!

Room Tip: Room 11 has the best view, but shared bathroom.

My family of four shared two rooms. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The only complaint is that one of the rooms was on the street side and late night diners kept us up a bit latter than we liked. Carlotta was superb. She tended to all our needs, made some excellent recommendations for dinner and encouraged us to join her watching Italy play in the Eurocup.

We loved this small basic "hotel". It is central to the main Siena sights, in the beautiful medieval old city. The Terrace overlooking the churches and tile roofs going up the hill was worth the stay! Our hostess made the breakfast to order while you sat on the terrace with the bells of the city ringing around you, fabulous. The room was quiet and we had a private bath, and the price was very reasonable.

I stayed at Albergo Bernini for ten nights, as I used Siena as a base for touring Tuscan hill towns. The family/staff that runs the hotel are extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating. For the price, it was well worth it and I would definitely recommend it. They also have a wonderful roof top terrace with a great view of Siena.

This is best hotel, from 1 to 5 stars in a dozen countries, that we have had the pleasure of staying in. The hotel is simple, but the service is magnificent: not an insulated tourist bubble, but instead the perfect place for really feeling a part of beautiful Siena.

Go with the optional breakfast, and listen to the recommendations for places to visit and eat in and around Siena.

Albergo Bernini

PROs:
Wifi - fast and reliable

Room size - fairly big and spacious. Charming design inside.

Airconditioning

Ensuite Toilet & Bath (but more expensive than the shared toilet rooms)

Terrace - fantastic viewing and dining spot! You can eat breakfast here or bring your own food for lunch / snacks / dinner. We and our friends bought wine, cheeses, and aperitifs for pre-dinner meals and it was wonderful. They also lend glasses, plates and cutleries for free.

Location - very near the heart of the city center. Within the city walls. If you feel like eating a quick pizza there is a nearby pizzeria. A convenience store can also be found nearby. Most of the attractions are within easy reach by walking. You can also walk to here from the main bus station plaza.

The hosts - very warm and pleasant!

CONs:
The price is slightly on the middle-upper range but after staying here we can say it was worth it.

Booking - you can only secure your booking by sending them a cheque for your first night / 1 night's stay. A bit inconvenient as you will spend for postal charges. If you want to cancel you can only do so before 2 weeks of your first booked night.

Breakfast - additional 3.5€ per pax / night. Nice to have this as optional to give you a choice but of course we would have preferred that it was part of the room rates.

Overall - very nice and pleasant stay. Will most likely recommend this for people who don't mind spending a bit more for accomodations.
