“Excellent Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Antica Residenza Cicogna is an Excellent B&B.It is a restored Palazzo about 3mins walk from the Piazza del Campo....in other words,right in the centre of Siena.The hostess,Elisa,is lovely and very obliging.The room was a good size and clean with a fresco on the ceiling....as per the photos on the website.Breakfast was a very generous buffet style with lots of choice and with Elisa on hand to help.She was also ready on arrival with useful tips of where to eat and visit.
The entrance is slightly confusing as there is via delle Terme and Via dei termini.....make sure you get the right one.If not, its just a few yards round the corner.The only downside is a very popular bar nearby that stays open till the early hours....if you have the stamina you can join in but if you want to have a good night's sleep after walking up and down Siena's winding streets then choose your bedroom wisely.

Room Tip: I think the local bar may only be relevant to one of the bedrooms but if you want a quiet night then...

A very pleasant stay here, the place and rooms are elegantly decorated and well maintained (we stayed in the Liberty room). Elisa made us feel very welcome, she is passionate about Siena, and gave us very good advice on restaurants and cafes in the area, for the real Sienese experience. No question was a problem, and any arrangements that were needed (eg organising a wine tour, or booking a taxi) were very happily made for us.

Great location too, handy to the bus station, shops, sights, restaurants.

Breakfasts were nice, and showcased some of the local cuisine and cakes.

The five nights that we spent in Antica Residenza Cicogna was just so much more than we expected for such a small B&B. This establishment is really giving more than necessary. The location could not be better especially if one wants to use it as a base for seeing other parts of Tuscany. We enjoyed the hospitality from the owners Eliza and her father. They always had time for a chat and went out of their way to try to give advice and search for information on the internet. The room was just so comfortable. The lounge area with free tea and coffee and biscotti with sweet wine was very special. It is difficult not to leave out any of the special touches in this establishment. We didn't expect to be provided with everything one could expect in a good hotel. The breakfast was just amazing. We would love to go back. Thank you.

Antica Residenza is in a GREAT location! Right in the heart of the old city. It was clean and presentable. Eliza is extremely nice and accommodating. A little difficult to get to driving...you MUST follow their directions to the "T". What was nice was waking up to the quiet streets of the city...and having coffee outside...made you feel like you were the only person in Siena.

We spent 3 nights in this nice B&B. The staff is so friendly and helpful - can not say enough about them. There recommendations for restaurants were great! We stayed in the Corte room - I liked the character in the pictures on their website. I think this room may be one of the smallest rooms and does not have a view. It was very comfortable and clean. But I think we would ask to stay in one of the larger rooms the next time we visit. The breakfast is great - really enjoyed the cappuccino. This hotel is very well located. We arrived by bus, and it was a very short walk to reach the B&B. Also you can be in Il Campo in a matter of minutes. There is a full service laundry just steps from the door that did a very nice job with our clothes (dropped off in afternoon, ready the next morning).

Room Tip: If you tend to feel claustrophobic, ask for a larger room with a window to outside of building.

We spent 5 nights here and could not have been more pleased. It is a perfect location! The staff is fantastic, very helpful. The breakfast was the best including my daily cappaccino hand made with a smiley face. We stayed in one of the suites - perfect for a family traveling together and the price was very reasonable. We will stay here again!!!
