“Beautiful Stay in Siena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Our family of four- 2 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 9 thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Borgo Grondaie. The pool was a few steps outside of our apartment. The apartment was spacious and well appointed with a kitchen, a comfortable bathroom that had a shower and tub as well as a bidet. There was a sleeper sofa as well as a separate bedroom with a door to a spacious balcony where one could hang out, sun bathe, or dry your clothes/towels. The Borgo Grondaie is conveniently located 10 minutes from the old town and one has easy access to the grocery store down the hill just a 3 minute drive from the hotel. The staff is extremely helpful, the breakfast is good and there are clothes washing facilities available. My only regret is that we could not stay longer. The grounds are gorgeous and this is the place to stay when In Siena or its surroundings.

Lovely hotel and an excellent base for exploring Tuscany. Good helpful staff, spotless rooms and a lovely breakfast served on the terrace. Grounds and swimming pool good for relaxing after a busy day.

My family stayed here in July 2012 (2 Adults, 2 teenagers) and enjoyed every minute! Was tricky to find (behind the large CO-OP, but don't let that put you off, because it's out of sight once you arrive) but received a warm welcome with spotless rooms. The grounds are well kept, with a lovely pool on an elevated, quiet position. Fantastic buffet breakfast, with the best espresso served by "John". When not sightseeing, we would pop to the supermarket for fresh bread/picnic and sit at a quiet table in the grounds to lunch. Small bar in reception is an added bonus. Would definitely recommend.

As others have said, this is a lovely Hotel on the outskirts of Siema, set in wonderful grounds. The rooms are in various buildings clustered around a lovely courtyard. It is like staying on a Tuscan farm. There is a nice salt water swimming pool, perfect for a refreshing swim after a hot day exploring the city or the Tuscan countryside.

Siena is quite close - around 20 minutes' walk to the city walls and another 10 minutes to the Campo, Siena's grand piazza. By the way, if you have a car you will easily find in the evening a free on-street parking space near the top of Viale Guiseppe Mazzini - in or around the petrol station. This leaves only 10 minutes' walk to the restaurants and bars of the Campo. The staff also recommended the San Francisco car park, which has an escalator link to the city centre, but we didn't use that.

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, and the whole place is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. We were in Villa 2 which was quite a big room, with very quiet, and most welcome, air conditioning. There was a fridge, which was replenished with bottled water each day, and a kettle to make tea or coffee. A good buffet breakfast is served each morning from 07:30 and you can eat either indoors, or in the pretty outside courtyard.

We can thoroughly recommend Borgo Grondaie, which provided us with a remarkably relaxing stay in the wonderful city of Siena.

I stayed at Borgo Grondaie for 2 weeks while attending language school in Siena. I booked on the basis of the hotel grounds and trip advisor reviews. This place did not disappoint! The grounds are absolutely amazing and were perfect for my two year old to run around in. We stayed in 'Giardino 3' a one bedroom apartment on the bottom level. The apartment had plenty of space for us with a generous sized bedroom. Probably because we went to bed early, we could hear people moving around in the upstairs apartment but it wasn't a major issue. The kitchen is quite small and there was no oven or toaster (we mastered the grill in the microwave to make toast!) but it has a lovely large fridge/freezer for all the local gourmet treats. The Coop supermarket (closed Sunday afternoon) is so handy but it is a hot walk home up the hill with your groceries!! It is great to cool down in the pool after the walk back up the hill. The bus service into town is handy and there are stops just past the Coop. You can buy single tickets from reception. I found the walk into town very pleasant in the mornings as there is usually a cool breeze in the shade. The staff were wonderful and very accommodating. They managed the comings and goings of different family members well and were very friendly to our toddler who was running amok around the property. Overall I thoroughly recommend this property, especially to those with young families. It would have to be the perfect place to base yourself in Siena... and they have chickens for kids to look at too.

Borgo Grondaie is a 20 minutes' walk from the city walls of old Siena. You'll be walking through a quite trafficated area, but the resort itself is withdrawn from the noise. There is a large garden, and the buildings are charming and well kept. Good rooms and beds. Nice pool area, though no bar/service. There is a bar inside the reception/breakfast area open until 23:00 where you can buy drinks, but no scnacks or sandwiches. Helpful and friendly staff, happy to order a taxi for you into the centre (costs about €8-9). We were very happy with our stay. Charming breakfast room, and there's also seating outside. Good breakfast buffet.

We stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment with our 6 year old for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Our room was well appointed and we enjoyed the flexibility of being able to eat in. The Coop supermarket was a 2 minute walk away. The pool was a marvelous place to cool off and there was plenty of green space to run around in. We had a car so the distance to town was not an issue for us.
