“Good choice in Siena”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a very nice place to stay in Siena -- a short and colorful
walk into the town center. The rooms are large -- excellent
sleep. We found room 23 to have the most wonderful view to
look out over the city -- a real delight on waking up in the
morning. If you travel by bus coming into Siena and you see
a sign for Villa Elda, then get off at this stop for you are very
close to the hotel.

The hotel is a converted villa on a quiet street just outside the centre of Sienna. A 5 minute walk takes you to the edge of Sienna with a further 5 to 10 mins to the Campo or cathedral. Our room on the top floor had a fantastic view over Sienna. You could lie in bed and see the city with the roof or the Duamo dominating the skyline. The staff were extremely helpful and restaurants they recommended were first class. No problem with on street parking.
The criticisms of other people are correct,eg no lift, air cooling system could
be better at night and breakfast was fine but simple. For us the pros far outweighed the cons. We would highly recommend .

Room Tip: Room 22 has fantastic view but on 2nd floor- no lift.

We just spent three nights at the beautiful Villa Elda, which enhanced our Siena experience. There is a pleasant 15 minute walk to the old town. We did not mind this because the hotel was in a very quiet and traffic free location. We requested a room with a view and were well rewarded with a panoramic view of Siena. Our room was delightful and comfortably proportioned with a modern, well-appointed bathroom and room for us to spread out. The state of art heating/cooling system is a bonus. Breakfast in the garden was lovely, staff were extremely helpful. Riccardo was especially helpful in helping us to book some lovely restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a panoramic view.

As others have said the location is perfect. It is walking distance to town but far enough away so that it is quiet. The large rooms are comfortable and the garden was delightful. I would like to add that the staff are amazing. We arrived after a day at the hospital, getting a cast on my leg and with no crutches so I was only able to hop. Not only did they arrange for us to be on the first floor, but they found a pair of crutches for me to use and checked in on me when I was on my own. They also helped rearrange our reservations for the rest of the trip. I was overwhelmed with their kindness, I would recommend Hotel Villa Elda without hesitation. When I get back to Siena someday, I hope to stay there again.

I recently stayed at the Villa Elda with my husband and son while we were visiting Siena for the Palio. I chose this hotel because it is outside the city walls but within easy walking distance of the Campo (where the race takes place)--therefore a bit removed from the crowds but still convenient. We were delighted with the choice. The hotel itself is charming--rooms spacious and nicely appointed, lovely breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Even though parking was not quite as easy as I had hoped (very few spots on site), the staff made every effort to facilitate our finding a place to leave the car. I would happily return to the Villa Elda and would recommend it highly to anyone visiting Siena (for the Palio or otherwise).

the hotel is in an nice, relatively quiet neighborhood location with easy access to Siena by walking; my room was spacious and nicely appointed; the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was large...as was the shower; the service was excellent and the facility was well maintained; having breakfast in the garden was very nice; my only reservation was hearing the adjoining rooms...the couple above were quite amorous...I would stay again, but, not on the ground floor.

Room Tip: do not select the ground floor

Perfect location to old Siena. Parking was provided and it was only a 10 min walk to the old town. Staff spoke excellent English and nothing was too much trouble. Room was large with lovely bathroom. They even have a small garden to sit in which is really pleasant.
