We stayed here on our trip through Italy for 3 nights. It proved to be a perfect base for trips to the Tuscan countryside and hill towns.
The apartment was larger than we expected - perfect for 2 couples and all of our stuff. Very clean and very well appointed. But the best part was the staff - they were wonderfully friendly and helped us figure out where to spend our days while we were in Siena. The breakfast was fabulous - plenty of food, with a variety of pastries, cakes, meats, cheese and cereal. Our apartment also had a beautiful patio where we could enjoy wine and cheeses in the shade of a trellis. Bellisimo! The beds were large and comfortable.
Getting into the old city of Siena from the hotel is walkable, but we chose to drive and park at the San Francesco lot, which surprisingly has escalators to take you up into the city. We also recommend Castello di Brolio in the Chianti region to the northeast (30 minutes by car from the hotel), as well as the hill towns of Pienza and Montepulciano to the southeast (35 minutes by car from the hotel). The Tuscany region is hard to beat.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
