Best place to stay in Siena

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 14, 2009

This was the most magical place we stayed the summer of 2005. We spent almost 2 months throughout Europe, 2 families with 3 kids between us. My sister had a 3rd child 2 years later and named her "Siena", so that says it all! This is a family-owned hotel, just outside the city wall, and is absolutely beautiful. We picked it based on the great reviews on a European side, I think it was called Vendeer or something similar. We each had our own apartment with full kitchen, and there was a very large Coop (a European grocery chain) just a 1/2 block away, between the town and the hotel, but we never cooked because there was so much good food to try everywhere. We ate gelato at least once a day, and we were lucky enough to get invited out to the Tuscan countryside by the owners of the hotel, to a relative's dinner party, and it was something out a movie- set up outside with outdoor tables spread throughout a beautiful garden area with small trees- there were fireflies, rolling hills overlooking vineyards- the owner's son sang and played guitar, fabulous food, adn everyone we met had great stories to tell and treated us like family. We'll all never forget our time there! Our older boys who were 8 and 10 loved the olive groves and pool on the property. We felt like we were staying in the Tuscan countryside, but we were 5 minutes walk to town. It was absolutely perfect!

Unique Quality: Everything was unique- they have a cute little afternoon bar area where they serve wine from their cellar with salami and other meats. The older son of the owner plays guitar and sings really well, too!

We had a little trouble finding the Borgo Grondaie, but once there we found it very inviting and relaxing. Just outside the city walls it feels like you are in the country, but there is a grocery store very close by. I think it is best to have a car if you stay here. We had an apartment (very nice), so we didn't get the breakfast buffet, but it looked delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful (coming to our apartment to show us how to use an italian coffee maker). We loved it and hope to go back.

Unique Quality: We enjoyed the pool and even went for a bike ride with the hotel bikes.

Directions: Behind the Train Station, past the Coop Grocery store

Hotel Borgo Grondaie

by written on September 4, 2002

$190 but I paid $115

Unique Quality: Beautiful hotel with friendly staff. The room I got had a terrace with a view of the city. Most rooms in Europe are small but this was a good sized one.
