We stayed two nights at the Borgo Grondaie at the end of June, 2012 with our two young kids, aged 3 and 5. We stayed in the Terrazza 2 appartment. Although this was not a cheap stay it was fairly competitive compared to the other places we had stayed at during our Italian vacation.
Very relaxing environment, especially around the pool, which was chilly by the way, with a beautiful view of Siena over the hill.
Great hotel staff always willing to help and answer any questions you may have.
As we had our own kitchen, we made ourselves breakfast and we did eat dinner one night on our balcony/terrasse which we just loved. It was very quiet even though other travellers were having a drink on their balcony right next to ours. The view from the terrasse is fantastic and spending hours sipping a drink or relaxing in the two long chairs is very easy to do!
The hotel is a good walk to the historic centre of Sienna and travelling with young kids we did use taxis to get back and forth and it was well worth the 10 or 12 euros each way.
The apartment was impeccable when we arrived. The bathroom was comprised of a nice size bath and a big rain shower with plenty of water pressure.
The bed in the master bedroom is a king size bed with a very decent mattress and comfortable pillows. There were 2 AC units in the apartment and both worked very well. The sofa bed is perfect for children but I would not recommend it for adults as it might be a little too soft.
I could not find anything bad enough to mention it in this review as our stay was just perfect.
