“A Nice Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

We would definitely recommend the Villa Elda in Siena. It feels more like an excellent quality B&B than a hotel. The breakfast is available in the breakfast room or in the garden outside. The breakfast is not a full American/English style breakfast and for this reason my husband would give the property four stars rather than five. However I feel that the breakfast is more than adequate and the ambience more than makes up for the missing fried bacon, sausages etc. I especially enjoyed the fresh 'blood' orange juice which I think was from Silician oranges. See other reviews for a full listing of what's on offer for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and the room we had on the ground level was very comfortable. From our window we had a lovely view of the entrance to the property framing the old Siena in the background. The location was excellent - we could walk to the Campo in 15mins or less while staying in a very quiet and attractive neighbourhood. We stayed only one night in August and I wish we had spent longer.

We had a lovely 2 day stay in Siena at the Villa Elda. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the old city and very convenient to all the sights.
The Front desk staff & owners were exceptionally helpful with directions and recommendations. The room was spotless & very spacious with excellent air conditioning.
The continental buffet was wonderful with superb cappuccinos made by a delightful waitress.

We stayed two nights with our son in this very attractive villa and were more than satisfied. We had a large, very clean room with a great view to the historic center of Siena. Air condition comes from the floor and is very convenient, since it does not make any noise. Breakfast was served on the hotel terrace. The hotel owner and staff are very friendly and helped us in finding good restaurants for dinner. We can definitely recommend this hotel andf hope to come back..

We chose the Hotel Elda based on Trip Advisor Reviews which were basically accurate. This small B and B is a 10 minut walk to the first of the streets of the old city of Siena and perhasp 15-20 min from the Campo. The room had high ceilings and adequate lighting and room. Parking, which we were told would be no trouble, was difficult. In one 24 hr period I had the move the car 3 times. Although air conditioning is advertised, the system used is cold water piped under the floor which can cool a maximum 10 degrees difference from ambient temperature we were told which when the outside air is 38-40 degrees leaves a hot room behind. Id one turns th system off in the cooler morning, the floor seats and becomes slippery. Breakfast was minimal and service from the front desk competent but cool. We are used to staying in 4-5* facilities so perhaps we ought have noticed the 3* rating before we booked as our expectations might have been too high.

VillaElda1, Proprietario at Hotel Villa Elda, responded to this review, September 6, 2011
Dear Sirs,
I am very sorry that you haven't found Villa Elda adequate to your expectations. This is not a B&B, but a hotel di Charme, according to our classification. It is situated in a residential zone of Siena, where the streets are washed twice a week - on Friday and Saturday mornings. Probably you have arrived in this period, when parking is problmatic. We always make our best to help our guests to resolve the parking problem. What regards our air-conditioning system, that is the most ecologic, silent and modern, it has worked its maximum during this period. In August we had an exceptional heat for all Italy due to an african anticyclon, and the temperature arrived to 38-40 degrees. Regarding my staff, they are always ready to help, smiling, and professional, other rewiews prove it. Our prices are adequate for a 3* hotel, not for a 4-5*.
I am sorry again for not being able to please you.
I wish you all the best,
Elda Tiberi, the owner

A charming, small hotel staffed by lovely, friendly people. Madame Elda greets everyone personally and Erica and Veronica were helpful with suggestions and reservations. The rooms are spotless and large and breakfast in the garden is the perfect way to start the day.

This hotel was a joy !

For me, finding a gem like this is what really makes Tripadvisor. You can stay in 4 star chain hotels the world over, and they are all much the same. But you won't get the intimacy and family welcome of Villa Elda in a chain hotel. It is beautifully situated overlooking the city in a leafy suburb with nice gardens and a great roof terrace. Excellent free WiFi and a good breakfast. Air conditioning worked well, and was combined with good quality shutters and thick walls of an old house, that has been tastefully restored. Most of all, the owner and her staff, who personally welcome each guest into their home. Don't miss it, if you are in the Siena area!

Madam Elda, the owner, was always making sure that we had a good and comfortable stay. All the staff we met were cheerful and helpful. Breakfast in the garden in the morning was great. Room was spacious and meticulously clean. a pleasant 15 mins walk to the centre of the town. Good view from the roof.
