0.16km from Bar Pizzeria La TerrazzaA truly great place to stay in the heart of a beautiful medieval city. I was well cared for by the wonderful and professional hosts, Hamza especially was attentive and thoughtful. I travelled to Siena for the August Palio di Siena and wanted accommodation as close as possible to the Piazza del Campo to see as much of the pageantry and race as I could – I was not disappointed! Hamza made sure I had a room with a direct view of the Piazza, and with the front door of the property located on the street where the pageant, horses and racers walk down to access the Piazza I was truly in the middle of this wonderful and historic event - perfect! I could not have asked for a better way to experience the electric atmosphere up close. If you are travelling for the Palio I strongly recommend staying here to experience (whilst enjoying beautiful Tuscan wine) this event without being packed in confined areas with tens of thousands of spectators! Hamza made this once in a lifetime experience an amazing one! A few Palio tips…. (1) on the day of the race cars are prohibited from entering the city so you will need to walk from the city gates – travel light as the walk will take you a good 30 mins in +30 degree heat. (2) definitely communicate with Hamza or Edmundo ahead of your arrival to book a table for dinner (post-race) - all of the good restaurants get booked up early and very quickly! The rooms are exceptionally clean with great comfy beds and private bathrooms. 24hr access to tea and coffee alongside an honesty bar with a great selection of Italian wines– the space has been well designed and thought out. Located in a beautiful building, access is up 2 flights of stairs (as is normal for these types of buildings) so travel light. Breakfast is taken in a lovely café based in Piazza del Campo which is delightful and so much better than having a breakfast in your room. Overall highly recommend. Siena is a wonderful city with great buildings, history, restaurants and shopping – easily could fill a day or two definitely worth putting this city on your Tuscan itinerary. Very easy to get to by train if you are staying in Florence.
