Fonti di Pescaia
Ranked #28 of 92 Specialty Lodging in Siena
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Travelled here by Motorbike with friends and used up the two ground floor rooms, both were big, spotless and comfortable, more than ample for our needs, the hotel is a bit of a hidden gem on the corner of a junction in its own grounds and only a stones throw from the old city, surprisingly quite, we met the owner Francesco who was a walking guide book re the city and our bike trip the following day, directing us to some superb roads and sights, his recommendation for evening meal and the little cafe for breakfast were excellent. Well recommended, it was just a shame we were only there one night.

From Fonti di Pescaia it is a six minute walk into the inner city walls and has plenty of parking! Do you need more? Francesco, our host was an enthusiastic, English-speaking Italian with a generous soul (if he comes to San Francisco I'll have him over for dinner!). The rooms are comfortable, there is outdoor space--a yard with tables and chairs for your late afternoon vino--and excellent eating just inside the wall on that side of Siena. Franco will recommend his friend's place where you will get a 10% discount as his guest and you will be happy you went! The showers are hot and honestly for a midrange hotel you can't do better than Fonti Di Pescaia.

Room Tip: I always suggest going for the top floor so that you don't have to listen to the feet above.

The hotel is situated near the centre of Siena and easy to reach by car. Serena and Francesco are very nice people who give advice where to go in Siena and tell you what is special in the town. Serena waited for our arrival even though we were one hour late. The hotel is a nice old-fashioned building with a little garden. The parking is hidden under trees and safe. We stayed in an appartement with a two bed room and a separate one bed room which was practical for our 17 year old daugther and we had a common bathroom for our own. We stayed for two nights and the price of 170 Euro for three persons was very worth it.

We were stopping one night in Siena on a driving trip through Tuscany, so we needed somewhere with a car park but wanted also somewhere within walking distance to the historic centre. This hotel ticked both boxes! It also has free wifi, which was another requirement!

Francesco was very helpful, providing a map to help us find our way around and good advice on places to eat out that night and where to have breakfast the following morning.

Our en-suite room was clean and although not luxurious, had everything we needed.

You can walk into Siena historic centre in less than 10 minutes (uphill) !

The only down side of the hotel location is that it's next to a main road which is very busy by day, so traffic noise and fumes would be a problem if you wanted to sit out in the garden. However, it is quiet by night so should not disturb your sleep :-)

Tip when driving to the site: the access to the hotel car park is in Via Giulio Chairgi, a narrow cul-de-sac which comes off Via Martin Caserma at a very acute angle. This is not a problem when arriving from the direction of the main road, Strada di Pescia. However, our sat nav (traveling from Pisa) brought us into Siena from the north, and we nearly got wedged across Via Martin Caserma trying to turn into the cul-de-sac at such an acute angle. If the car park is full (or you miss the entrance as we did), you can park on-street just beyond the hotel.

We would recommend this hotel as a base for 1-2 nights if you are traveling by car but want somewhere within walking distance of the historic centre and will be out and about most of the day when the traffic on the main road is at its busiest. Plus, you could not ask for a better host than Francesco!

Dear Guests,

thanks for your good review. We know that the access to the parking from Via Lamarmora is not so easy... we arrive every day from Via Lamarmora and it's difficoult for us too!

We hope to accomodate you another time!

We had a really great time in Siena and wish we could have stayed longer. :-) Francesco was incredibly warm and welcoming, he gave us a ton of advice where to go in the city and didn't mind us arriving rather late. Our room was beautiful, comfortable bed and decent size - and the private parking and included Wifi are a great plus. The location is also perfect, quiet but very close to the city center!

I went to Siena with my boyfriend in May and we were looking for a cheap accommodation with private parking.
There is a big car park inside the hotel and it is in a really good location as just 5 minutes walk from the city centre. Our room was a decent size with a really comfortable bed and it was clean. We arrived at the hotel very early and there was just the cleaner there who was nice as she gave us the map and the permission of leaving our luggages in the hotel. The owner was a really good chap as he was happy to talk and gave us a good suggestion for where to go for our meals.
I would definitely go back in future.
