“Elegant small hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

We stayed for one night during an 8 night trip to Tuscany in October.
Villa Elda is a small hotel in a great location with car parking available. From our room which was clean and nicely furnished we had the most fantastic panoramic view of the Duomo. There is no lift but we had help with our luggage We had a 15 minute walk to the centre of Siena with plenty of sights to see along the way. It was only 5 minutes to the Fortezza Medicea a huge brick fortress which also give great views of the surrounding countryside. Breakfast was basic continental but enjoyable.
The owner and staff were very helpful with recommendations of what to see and where to eat.
Siena is a beautiful city.

Room Tip: Request a room with city view.

This small hotel is a jewel in Siena. A short walk from the historic centre, it is ona quiet street. The staff, especially Barbara, were amzingly accomodating and helpful. Drinking wine in their garden was a delight. We hope we can return. Highest possible reccomendation!

Room Tip: No bad rooms. The hotel is on a quiet residential street.

We stayed at Villa Elda for our wedding anniversary in September 2012, the hotel was very clean, a 10 minute walk into the heart of Siena and overall a very good base in a convenient location. The view of Siena on the walk in is not to missed, you actually get to see it from an angle that you wouldn't necessarily see if you stayed in the centre of town. The reception staff were most helpful and even moved their car so we could park ours outside the hotel!!! Breakfast was basic but good enough to set you up for the morning. The only downside is there's no lift so prepare yourself for a few steps, it wasn't a problem for us as we are young (ish) and pretty fit!! We stayed for two nights and ate at the hotels recommendation of Da Divo on our wedding anniversary, fantastic restaurant.

Room Tip: There is no lift.

Nice and friendly staff. The owner is a charming lady. We had a problem with the room, which I will not even mention here because the owner solved it perfectly. Well done!
Clean and spacious room. Good location in the outskirts of central Sienna (thus being able to park and avoid the ZTL).

I'm not going to go into too many details on hotels but basically I can tell you this.

Pros - It was clean, the service was really nice, the overall atmosphere of the hotel was nice.

Cons - Not where the action is (can be good or bad)...about 10-15 min walk to city center, breakfast was basic but included.

All in all, I enjoyed the hotel!

We were so happy to return to Siena and stay at the Hotel Villa Elda for the 4th year in a row especially to celebrate our 40 anniversary.We arrived late in the evening, because of flight delays and a missed connection to Firenze.Barbara ,who was at the reception desk ,was relieved that we were fine and quickly settled us in our room. We opened the huge window to find a spectacular panoramic view of Siena with the impressive Duomo before us !The next morning as we walked through the lobby, Signora Elda and Veronica greeted us warmly ,saying how worried they had been since we had emailed them about our delays. From that moment on, everyone at Villa Elda wanted to make sure we had a wonderful week with them ! Veronica, Barbara and Ricardo were always very friendly and helpful . They answered our questions, arranged a Brunello tour, and even had a chilled bottle of champagne awaiting our return one afternoon ! Each morning we looked forward to a delicous breakfast in the serene garden,such a relaxing way to start the day Rosita took great care of us there,and she also kept our room in perfect order the entire week. Veronica surprised us with a drive out to San Galgano, and gave us a great tour of the abbey after she finished work one day. She knew were having difficulty with bus connections and wanted us to be able to enjoy seeing more of the area. The biggest thrill of all was Signor Carlo's invitation to fly in his private plane to view Siena and the surrounding towns ! It was literally above and beyond all our expectations ! Signor Carlo also drove us up to Piazza Gramsci and made sure we were at the correct bus stop for our trip to Firenze.The beauty of Hotel Villa Elda is only surpassed by the graciousness of the lovely Signora Elda and Signor Carlo's thoughfulness and charm. We hope to have the privilege of staying with them again next year. Until then, we express our deep appreciation to Signora Elda, Signor Carlo, Veronica, Barbara, Ricardo and Rosita for making our 40th anniversary perfect ! Grazie , Peggy and George
