“Great family run B & B”
Reviewed January 7, 2006

Mauro and his family run a superb bed & breakfast. My wife and I stayed in a nice room (queen bed) with attached facilities. Albergo Bernini's breakfast terrace has a tremendous view of Siena. We used Siena as a base to explore the greater region of Tuscany (San Gimignano, Montepulciano and Pienza). Highly recommend!

We spent 3 days in Siena and this was a wonderful hotel. Our hosts were very friendly and even gave us a nice little accordian concert. They have a wonderful deck up on the roof, overlooking the city, where they served us breakfast. We brought our own wine and cheese up in the evening and they came right up with glasses for us. It was great.

We stayed at Albergo Bernini for 3 nights in September. We thought it was a good room for the price. A little street noise, but it quieted down after 11:00pm. I would recommend it for most travelers. Close to several good places for dinner, one in particular is... La Tellina on Via Delle Terme 52. We had the best meal and the best waiter, Amelio. I would highly praise his kindness and service, a rarity in Italian waiters :)

i went to this hotel with my grandparents. there were the three of us so i think we got the biggest room. in my opinion we also got the best veiw in the entire hotel!!! it is run by a family and has an amazing atmosphere. while there we met a mother and daughter who were also staying in this hotel and we are all very good friends now. while there you dont even really feel like you are in a hotel. it feels more like an apartment or something. it is very homely.

This hotel offers the best view of this enchanting town : the terrace of the Albergo Bernini is wonderful and having breakfast there is the best way to start your day. If you don't believe me, check their website ! --- The family that runs it is gracious and warm and gives very good advice on Siena & the surroundings. Be sure to ask for a big room as the sizes are different, but I have stayed there twice and all the rooms are very nice and clean. It is a very good deal as it is hard to find cheap hotels in the heart of the town. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to travel to Siena !

First, this is a family run place and the atmosphere is truly friendly. The view from the terrace and sitting area is spectacular. Our room was simple, clean and perfectly acceptable. However, our private bathroom was not up to par. Although acceptably clean, there was a persistent sewer like odor coming from a toilet bowl that barely flushed. The odor caused us to leave after two nights. The shower was in the open in the bathroom with just a curtain. Although common in budget hotels, it is not a set up that I like. Note that credit cards are not accepted and there is a midnight curfew.

Stayed 3 nights and were very happy. We booked a double room (the last available) without ensuite and found it to be quite nice although a bit on the small side. The floorplan on the door revealed that the rooms are all different shapes and sizes and we got the smallest. During the following day our stuff had been moved to another room (twin beds) while we were out. The room was a bit larger but we weren't happy about it being a twin room. Alessandro then kindly moved us to another larger double room which we were really happy with. We never did work out whether the first move was for their benefit or ours due to slight language difficulties.
We didn't try the breakfast, but we did see the stunning view from the balcony!
The staff were friendly and helpful and everything was clean.
Re: the shared bathrooms - we found that one bathroom was a bit smelly but the other was fine. There doesn't seem to be much air flow through them.
