“Great Hotel and Service”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

I can only recommend this hotel, lovely staff, great service, clean and spacy rooms, very quiet.
The breakfast was excellent, the pool clean and nice and even though it was about 20 minutes to walk to the Piazza, nothing to complain.
I will stay there again if I decide to travel in that area again.

We slept 2 nights in this hotel with my wife and my 2 little children.
The hotel is not in the historical city, but just beside the walls, which means 15 min walk to reach the centre. The nice point is that you have an outstanding view of the city centre from the breakfast room, included to the price. There is also a swimming pool, but very cold... 17°C as we went there...
Our room was located in the ground floor. It was very clean with much space. The price of 90€ per night was really good.

Unfortunately, the lady at the welcome desk was not professional : she forgot to tell us about the breakfast so that we missed it the first morning, and she forgot to give us our passports back, so that we left the hotel without them. Be carrefull of her !

Location OK and the staff friendly, but great variance in the quality of rooms and older section dated. Beds in newer rooms rock hard and showers tight. No internet..perhaps Al Gore could visit and discover how cheap it is to set up a router. TV has 300 channels...all Italian all the time. Breakfast and rooms not with the price.

Stayed 1 night with 2 small kids. Room was decent but no fridge. Breakfast room very big and good choice of fruits, cold cuts and good coffee. Staff was very friendly, playing with our kids making us comfortable. Within walking distance to the main piazza even with 2 kids althougb outside city wall. Overall great value for the price and highly recommended

Reviewed 15 September 2011

Stayed at Hotel il Giardino for two and half days in late June 2011 with my wife and our two teenaged boys. After staying three days in the heart of Rome to start our trip, this little family operated hotel provided us with a good spot from which to visit Siena, Florence, Greve, Ovieto and Castellina in Chianti. The hotel isn't much to look at, but the rooms are comfortable, it is affordable (we had to book two rooms) and the pool is a welcome respite after a long day of touring. Rooms are adequate in size and the breakfast that is served each morning in the central dining are is very good (don't expect cooked food, though). English is spoken here and there is a very limited area in the hotel off of the pool within which you can get a workout with some free weights.The hotel is located outside of the walled city of Siena and it is a healthy walk into Siena's main square. There is no food on site after breakfast, so it would be good to remember to bring some food back to the room from Siena if you are prone to snack a bit late night. Wi-fi is available in the lounge and it is more than adequate. Would be nice if it was in the rooms, too. Pool is well kept, has a nice view of the countryside and there were always spots available even though the hotel seemed to be fully booked. We had some problems with broken lights in the shower in our room, but the staff fixed them immediately. TV offerings are very limited. I don't recall there being a refigerator in the room. The owners directed us to two fantastic restuarants, off the beaten path, in Siena and they know the area through and through. There was air in our room, but I wouldn't call it the type of AC that we are used to here in the US. Views from the hotel rooms were stunning, although our kids had the room with the balcony. The hotel has a nice outdoor sitting area and they do serve drinks (they had a marvelous assortment of European and Northen Italian beers) and fantastic coffee/espresso throughout the day. Would recommend this hotel highly for travellers who use their hotel as a place to recharge after a day of touring destination spots and not as a destination itself.

I stayed at the Giardino from 18th-22nd August 2011 with a friend. We chose it partly for its location, its price and its swimming pool and we were not disappointed. The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful giving us a very warm welcome and always going the extra mile for us. Their restaurant recommendations were all spot on and they offered lots of advice on buses to Montepulciano and the surrounding Chianti area. We had a twin room which was absolutely fine - clean, plenty of space, good shower, although the safe didn't work (minor issue) - but the fabulous surprise was our balcony which gave us stunning views over the Tuscan hills. Breakfast was great, lots of fresh fruit and pastries and of course amazing coffee. The pool was also very welcome. The hotel is situated about a 2miute walk from a gate through the wall of the old city, and about a 15 minute stroll from the Campo. After a morning of sightseeing and atmosphere absorbing we were able to swim and sunbathe and prepare ourselves for an evening on the Campo drinking Campari. We really had a wonderful time. The hotel is not perfect. If you are looking for absolute homogeneity across rooms and a distant professionalism from staff then this is probably not for you. But comfortable, friendly, warm and homely it certainly was. Highly recommended!
