  • Best place to stay in Siena

    by

    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!

    Great Siena Apartment/Hotel

    by

    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

    $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.

Nice hotel, a little out of town

by TripAdvisor Member padvisorg

Borgo Grondaie is nicely presented, with very helpful staff and a superior breakfast to anywhere else we stayed on our trip.

There is only one problem - it's a 15-20 minute walk into Siena. If you don't mind the walk I would recommend the hotel to you.

A fantastic place to stay!

by TripAdvisor Member Kaisei

2 room apartment with full kitchen and full bath, king sized bed 3/24 (EUR 95), 3/25. 3/26 (EUR 145 - Easter weekend)

Fantastic! Highly recommend. Hotel and apartments built in an old Tuscan farm about 2 km out of Siena’s city center. Completely renovated in 2001. 4 acre property on hillside, with a saltwater swimming pool open in the summer. Lovely grounds, spotlessly clean rooms filled with antique furniture, and an incredible staff. Large parking area (free), use of washer/dryer (free), good water pressure in shower,… Our apartment (the one over the reception) came with a fantastic Jacuzzi bath. Very quiet, located just above the Siena train station, but we didn’t hear the trains. A bridge that crosses the train tracks was just completed. The walk from the train station is now less than 10 minutes. The walk into town is completely uphill, but is much shorter now that the bridge is open. Buses and taxis available. We usually took a taxi into town, and walked back (downhill) afterwards. The COOP grocery store is great. I recommend renting one of the apartments and buying your own breakfast. The selection of meat and cheese there was tremendous. Borgo Grondaie is owned and run by a single family, all of whom are friendly and extremely helpful. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. A small bottle of wine welcomed us (we were on our honeymoon), and delicious Easter chocolates sent us on our way. I would definitely stay here again. Only negative note: the grounds were lovely, and there was a view of some of Siena (not the older part). But, the view directly below is the train station and lots of tracks, and the backside of a giant supermarket - including garbage bins, graffiti,… When we first pulled in, I was rather disappointed. The ’neighborhood’ is not a pretty one. I thought the view would be more ’rural’. Luckily, once we checked in, I could barely see the train tracks from our room (mainly the view was of a courtyard below), and could not see the supermarket at all. From late spring, once the trees have leaves, the train tracks are probably out of view as well. You can stay somewhere more ’rural’, but you won’t have the incredible access to the city center. All in all, if you stay here you will not be disappointed.

p.s. A hint for finding the place: At first, head toward the train station. Then look for the ‘commercial/shopping centre’ signs. They should take you toward the Coop. The road to Borgo Grondaie goes around the right side of the Coop and up a hill behind it. I did notice Borgo Grondaie signs as well, but they were harder to see.

Beautiful hotel in Sienna

by A TripAdvisor Member

This charming hotel was a pleasant surprise to us. We chose it for its proximity to the train station. It is located on an old farm place and has great character, large, nicely decorated rooms, and a helpful staff. It was immaculately clean, and the grounds were well kept and lovely. It is a little hard to find, and its location is not altogether picturesque since the station and its environs are close-by. However, the rear and side of the hotel grounds are beautiful. It would have been helpful to have had better directions for finding it. We drove into Sienna and had a bit of difficulty finding it. For those who want or need to stay in Sienna rather than in a more remote area nearby, this hotel offers a perfect combination of city and country advantages.

Wonderful property

by A TripAdvisor Member

We loved our short stay here and wished it could have been longer. The property is beautiful and the apartments quite large. We loved the heated towel racks and the immaculate condition of the room and kitchen. We were a little surprised by the walk to town. A little further than our impression. Even the walk to the bus stop is a little less than optimal as you walk by the Coop without a sidewalk. But those are small inconveniences in exchange for a beautiful property and accomodating staff.

Wonderful Stay

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed at this hotel for three nights earlier this month and had a great time. The apartment was roomy, clean and comfortable. The grounds were very nice and what a treat to have breakfast ouside with the smell of lemon blossoms in the air. Staff was great, vey helpful. We had a car and as previous reviews has stated its a little tough finding places but hey it's small town Italy. We usually took a taxi into town for dinner and found that to be less taxing on the patience. While we didn't swim we did have nice enough weather to lounge around the pool and read. Overall a nice experience and would stay again.

Amazing and relaxing

by TripAdvisor Member courtuk

We just spent four nights at this hotel. The place is amazing. It is located a outside the walls but a taxi ride was never more than 8 euros and btw three of us it was worth it. The grounds are beautiful and allow you to feel like you are in the country when you are really only a short ways from siena. This is def. a plus with the summer temperatures. The lemon and olive trees provided the perfect background to have afternoon drinks outside, and the hotel had quaint seating areas set up just for this. the staff was very friendly and helpful. You do pass the grocery stores when entering but once up the hill you can't even see them. Def. worth it, and I want to go back as soon as possible!

Great place!

by A TripAdvisor Member

We stayed one night at this hotel. The facilities offered include the hotel and also apartments/kitchenettes. We stayed in one of the apartments. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff, especially Stefano, was helpful and friendly. We would recommend a stay in Borgo Grandaie for travelers to Siena.
