“Best B&B in Siena!”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Italy. I used Trip Advisor extensively to select small family run B&Bs for our trip.

We stayed for 3 nights at Al Mercato in Siena - near Florence, in Tuscany, and would definitely recommend it to others. It is ideally located, just off the main square with a view over the market square. They have great room options and a super restaurant right next door.

The room was spacious, air conditioned with great windows and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom had a super shower - even for tall visitors to Italy. The breakfast was just outside our door, served by a lovely young student and family member. We really enjoyed the chance to get to know a 'local' and hear about real life in Siena, Italy!

We would highly recommend this B&B for couples or families travelling to the old world of Siena in Tuscany, Italy!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the market square!

The Al Mercato B&B is a wonderful little place, a stone's throw away from the Campo. Very clean, nice rooms, modern, fully functioning bathrooms, modest breakfast (the Italian way!)
The bonus is the restaurant "La Finestra", at the bottom of the building on the Mercato-side, run by the same family. It serves excellent food, and the guests of the B&B get a discount.
We have stayed at Al Mercato several times, and had many a delicious meal at La Finestra. For us there is no better place to be in Siena.

If you have never been to Sienna- and you are driving a car - be warned this hotel is NOT easy to locate and very difficult to drive to if you want to drop off your luggage. I highly recommend you get exact details of the location before arriving. On the hotels website it deceptively states "The historic centre is close to traffic and therefore we will take care of your car by assigning you a parking space and park and ride service, all included in the price."
However you will be told you can park in a parking lot for 1.60 euros per hour that is a bit of a walk away. Or you can park outside the city walls for 1.00 euros per hour, again a bit of a walk.
The room was clean, quiet and comfortable, a/c and internet. Breakfast was very basic, nothing special. The price of room was fair and very close to the campo. I would stay here agian but would plan better for the driving/parking situation.

Went to Siena for the day & had a delicious lunch for 7. We were a little late but they were extremely accommodating. Food wine was enjoyed by all. The cheese plater with different jellies is out of this world. 2 years in a row & they should get 6 stars ! I can't wait to book the b&b for 2 days when they do the Palio !!!

I stayed at "B&B Al Mercato" just one night. It's very comfortable, clean and familiar, just few steps away from Piazza del Campo (about 20m).
The owners manage also a restaurant, which is besides the B&B. I enjoyed a typical Tuscan dinner, also thanks to the kindness of Eugenio and Ledda (the son of the owners and his girlfriend). Well-recommended.
