“Excellent 4 night stay in Siena”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We chose this B&B because it was well rated on T/A and had free parking. We rented a car to drive the Crete Senese and visit Montalcino and Pienza.

The room was fine, the breakfast excellent with great coffee, pastries, and cheeses. The owner and his wife go out of their way to be helpful and he recommended restaurants which we would not have tried otherwise (see my other reviews of Siena Restaurants).

The only complaint was the damn rooster outside our room ( we had a balcony overlooking the yard). He decided that crowing at 3 am, 5 am and 7 am was his duty. Being canadian of course we prefer to sleep in cool/cold rooms at night. The A/C was not yet converted from heating, so we simply opened the inner door to the balcony ( thus making the Rooster an issue). We would of course stay here again - the rooster and all, because the service was great, the room comfortable and the breakfasts excellent.

Pleasant, convenient place. Quiet location and only a couple minutes walk from a bus stop that runs right into Siena.

The best service I've ever had at a hotel. The owner was amazing and made our trip much easier.

The owner went out of his way to help us with reservations for some winery tours. He took the basic info we figured out and looked up the rest and called all the places and set it up. He also gave us some excellent restaurant suggestions and took the time to explain the local bus system and how to get back to the hotel.

We spent one night in this wonderful place in the rural tuscany. However it is just 5 minutes away from the siena centre. The owner was really friendly, he gave us good suggestions about where to eat and what to do. And the breakfast was better then in a 5 star hotel, with a various of home-made cakes.

Such a cute cozy home! One of my favourite B&Bs. The host was exceptional, friendly, generous, polite. The breakfast was to die for, everything home made and so refreshing. The room was so clean and inviting. 2 min walk to the bus stop. Beautiful view. I can not say enough good things about this place. We would go back and stay forever if we could.

Lovely b&b with good location. Bus stop really close to the house (10 min driving to the center of Siena). We enjoyed the home made cakes at the breakfast ;-) room was clean same for bathroom. We parked our car at the B&b for free. We recommend La Verbena !

Reviewed 21 October 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our Italian road trip. It was the best B&B and we had a really pleasant experience here. The owner - Fabio, a friendly, helpful, kind and gentle guy. He met and greeted us at the gate upon our arrival. He recommended and explained to us about driving around Siena - from the town (and where to park) to driving to the countryside of Siena like Crete Senesi, Pienza, etc. The location is a bit out of town but it wasnt a problem for us since we had a car. This B&B offer a private parking and its free of charge. Its has beautiful view of Siena landscape. Our room has a balcony and it was very clean, big and nice with comfortable bed. Same goes with the bathroom - very clean. The Wi-Fi worked very well. The breakfast was good - Fabio waited in the dining area and greeted with a smile. Try the homemade cakes - they were delicious! Everything about this B&B is great. We are agreed with other reviewers and we highly recommended this B&B!

Reviewed 12 October 2013

Staying for 3 nights at the end of Sep. 2013, we were impressed mostly from Fabio, the owner, and his welcoming family. Fabio, English speaker, kind and gentle, brought into focus information about attractions around, car parking areas close to Siena, local restaurants etc. The location of the B&B is out of Siena old town ~3 KM. we wouldn't recommend walking since there are not pavements along the road to town and it is quiet a busy road with Italian drivers (!). It takes 10 minutes by car to one of the parking area around the center.
The room was large and clean, cleaned every day, Wi-Fi worked well. Fabio was willing to re-operate the air-condition system since it was shut down at that time of the year, even only for me if I had asked for. Breakfast served in a bright room and to be praised the home-made cakes which we found out that the grandfather (Fabio's father in laws) is baking them!
We would like to recommend this B&B to other travelers who wish for warm hospitality.
