We only stayed here for one night, but that was enough to give us a great impression. We arrived by train from Rome and Vacanze Senesi was very easy and quick to find from the station. Carlo makes you feel very welcome and comfortable - he upgraded us to a triple room which was huge. The room had a private bath and was spotless and very quiet. There is a small elevator in the building. Carlo provided a map of Siena and had great suggestions for restaurants. His breakfast was excellent - the usual Italian sweets with juice and coffee, but he serves it with a nice flair. There is not really access to the kitchen on your own, but Carlo lives here and it is his private kitchen so that is understandable.
The walk down to the Campo gives you a great feel for Siena - narrow streets with nice shops and beautiful old buildings - we took a couple of different routes there and back and you get some nice views of the hills around the town.
We booked this through the site bedandbreakfast.eu and then emailed Carlo himself to make sure we were in fact booked. He e-mailed back right away with good directions to his place.
Italy can be very expensive and Vacanze Senezi gives great value for the money - very comfortable and safe - feels like home. Thank you Carlo!
