It's been 9 years since we've been to Siena and we were happy to find that Borgo Grondaie is as charming as it was when we were last in town. All staff are very helpful and accommodating, the apartment we stayed in Ollivi 2 was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Even if you're staying in the apartments, we recommend paying the little extra for the morning breakfast which offers scrambled eggs, cured meats, pastries, and other typical continental breakfast choices. The gardens are so beautiful and really make the BG special. Yes, the BG is outside of the walled city center of Siena, but if you stay inside the wall, you won't get the expansive gardens and pool that the BG offers. If you don't want to walk, you can park your car at the Fortezza Medicea. It's a 10 minute walk to the new escalators across the street from the train station and another 15-20 minute walk from the top of the escalators to the Piazza del Campo, so you need to be in decent physical condition to walk roundtrip, but my 7 year old daughter did it 3 days in a row without complaints, and she actually raced me up the stairs while I went up the escalator sometimes, too! At the bottom of the street (1 minute walk), there is a major supermarket (COOP) which has everything you need to stock up for long stays. After sunset each night, we would go out into the gardens to watch the fireflies twinkling. It was simply magical.
