Perfect location overlooking the Campo. Lovely atmospheric apartment in beautiful old building. Comfortably furnished;good plumbing and bathroom.
However, inadequate self catering/cooking facilities for a 6 night stay. Not even a sharp knife, and were told the oven didn't work.
Also, not one English speaking tv channel.
Disappointing lack of facilities, at the price
The place is functional but a little tired. A coat of paint would do wonders. The antique furniture is not enhanced by the slip covered couch and chair.
The bed is comfortable though, and after all, you're here to explore and not live in the apartment.
The wifi did not work the first two days, but the owner went and got it fixed.
If I come back to Siena I would consider staying here again.
The apartment is in a wonderful location with an incredible view—really impressive. It is on the fourth floor, but there is a small elevator (although we always climbed the stairs). We did not use the kitchen at all as there are several fantastic restaurants near by (which makes it all the more puzzling why we only got 3/5 for cleanliness). Despite other reviews, the air conditioning seemed to work well, which is good since it can be quite loud on the Piazza del Campo (one night we heard people partying until 4 in the morning). The internet was spotty, but it worked for the most part. I am not quite sure why we got 4/5 on the “house rules” either as we really only slept there—we were gone from essentially 10 to 10 every day. I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment as long as you are not worried about your rating on VRBO.
Siena is a wonderful place to visit and this apartment is a great place to stay. Anna was very helpful and responsive in making our visit very enjoyable. This apartment is unique as described with three large windows opening to Piazza del Campo which are like a magnet, drawing you to stand at the window and watch all the activity on the square. The view of the tower is especially magnetic during the evening when the sun hits only the upper tower section.
The apartment is very comfortable for two, as we stayed 11 nights and felt at home. The kitchen is sufficient to cook easy meals (my wife made pasta ragu, umm, yummy) and a few other dishes. The bed is comfortable and has a view of the tower. There is plenty of storage for your clothing and bags while the couch offers a relaxing spot to read or watch TV. The bathroom is adequate although the shower is a bit small.
This apartment is in the center of Siena, so if you are traveling by car, understand that you cannot drive to this apartment. There are many parking choices, many very expensive. We found one of the best of all which was recommended to us by a taxi company. This is a parking lot at the end of Str. deiTufi. The GPS coordinates are 43°17'47.9"N 11°20'06.9"E. I suggest you park there for FREE! There is a bus stop there, take the #54 bus right to the center of town and the apartment is just a few steps away. this is the best advise I can offer.
Enjoy your stay and everything about Siena.
The apartment is very centrally located in the heart of the old city. Lots of activities, shopping, food, sites and more. There is no parking adjacent to the apartment, so plan your luggage needs accordingly. There is a small elevator from the lobby area to get to the third floor.
The apartment is well-stocked, good furniture, great bed, good shower, functional small kitchen, and great views right on the Piazza il Campo out to the countryside. We were met at the apt by their housekeeper who plugged in the wi-fi (didn't work for us, as we were only carrying wi-fi devices - we think the device needed to be plugged into an actual computer to work) and made sure we had what we needed.
Overall - no complaints! Anna was good at communicating via email about any questions we had during our stay. Good central base for a few days in Siena.
A great location with an exceptional view. A confortable small apartment...and an excellent bed, after hours of visiting unforgettable Siena. A friendly landlady.
Three observations though: the kitchen is a kitchenette which is OK for elementary cooking; the lighting in the bathroom and the living room should be improved; the
general cleanliness could be better.
These are details however and we do recommend this apartment as ideal for a few days in Siena as we did in early October 2015.
