“Good value for the money”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

Hotel Piccolo Il Palio was one of the nicest experiences we have had with hosteles in Italia.First of all this hostel has a really good location, the old town is 5 mins walking. The room was spacious with good, comfortable beds. Moreover the breakfast is included in the price and I need to tell that the breakfast was the best one we've had. And the last thing what makes this hostel excepicional was really nice, helpful stuff who helped us to rent a car and agreed to leave our lugguge for one more day while we were travelling around Toscany! Really, really nice experience!!!

This is an excellent place to stay at the historical center of Siena and the price is really good. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was clean and decorated with authentic furnitures. At the reception were Contrada flags, pitures from the Palio and comfortable area to take a rest and make some pictures (with the flags).
I would recommend it to everyone who would like to stay at an unique hotel with a lot of history in Siena!

Please, please ignore the bad reviews for this hotel. I am really not sure where these people have been but evidently not the same place as me and my partner. Firstly the price is reasonable, especially so for a charming historic building in a wonderful city like Siena. The staff were friendly at all times and seemed to appreciate that we were making an effort to speak Italian, while being entirely able and willing to revert to English when it became necessary. The room was clean and nicely furnished with a couple of large antique style items of furniture entirely in keeping with the age of the building. The bed was especially comfortable, with sheets and bedspread as well as additional pillows/sheets in the wardrobe. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate for two people to share. The shower could have been updated possibly, but again it was clean, and powerful enough for me to wash my very long hair, as well as being large enough for two people to use at once. We were provided with a good stock of clean soft towels in a variety of sizes, and these were changed every morning. The location of the hotel is lovely, with a nice friendly pizzaria just across the square, and only a five minute walk from the centre of the city. There is noise from outside at night, which we could hear as we left the windows open all night, however I doubt that this would have been much different anywhere in the city, and it certainly didn't keep us awake. The breakfast in the morning was very nice, with fresh fruit, a selection of cereals, cheeses, cold meats and breads as well as juice and tea/coffee from a machine. The only downside here was that my partner got a little confused by the Italian coffee machine and initially ended up with a cup of hot milk instead of the milky coffee he expected, but this was a language difficulty and was quickly sorted out. The décor in the hotel was very much on theme, with images from the Palio throughout the hotel, and a collection of Contrada flags in the reception area. The only downside here was that the carpet on the stairs was a little dated and scruffy, this could probably do with an update soon. Overall however this is an excellent hotel and I would both stay here again and recommend it to a friend.

The room was small, the bathroom was smaller and then there was the shower. Its doors slid back to allow a gap of the width of my index finger to my thumb. My wife got it but alas could not wash her hair as she could not raise her hands above her head in the 60cm x 60cm shower. I had to bend the plastic glass back to squeeze myself in like trying to get the sardines back into the tin.

I have never failed to get into a shower so I persisted and won.

Room Tip: Ask the size of the shower

We found this hotel just by coincident and thought the buliding looked nice from the outside so we checked in for one night. The only nice thing was the balcony, the rest of the room was horrible!!!! It was so dirty, the carpet was not hoovered, the walls just dirty, the interior dated and scruffy. But the worst thing of all was the airplaine like bathroom box (white plastic cubicle). It was a joke really. It was so tiny, everything got wet and flooded when having a shower, no room for putting anything and everything was discoloured and stained!
The biggest disappointment really was, that LonelyPlanet has recommended this hotel in their Tuscany travelguide.

Room Tip: I would recommend anyone to stay here. I hope there are better rooms than the one we stayed in. Our...

Everything was good organized. The only thing that could better is the shower. The water came almost in the sleeping room !
