Bed & Breakfast Fonte dei Tufi
Ranked #20 of 126 Siena B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 February 2013

For a one night stay, Fonte dei Tufi offered us a perfect base for our short trip in Siena. It was located outside the main city but close enough to walk the distance (about 25 minutes walk). Some have mentioned in their reviews that the road to the city was dangerous, which we thought to be untrue. However we live in Italy, so we are used to walk alongside the roads (without the pedestrian roads). :) Also the minibuses to the city went by every 15 minutes, so the accessibility to the B&B was exellent.

The rooms were clean and well aquipped. The owner of the B&B was really nice and welcomming, she spoke good English and recommented a great little restaurant for us by the name of Osteria Boccon del Prete.

By the way, outside the season the mini bar products were in sale! A nice detail. :)

However, if you are searhing for a B&B with a country side feel to it, Fonte dei Tufi offers it to some extent, but because it's location (and view) next to a busy autostrada, it doesn't quite fullfill the idea of a rural accommodation. But on the other hand, if you want to stay in a nice and clean (and soundproofed) B&B with a practical location concerning the city side and at the same time close to the main roads, this is definately your choice. It all depends on what you're searching of.

The next time we visit Siena, this will be definately our choice of accommodation.

This is a great bnb - a wonderful winter haven after some fairly cold nights elsewhere. Convenient to siena, which was much more pleasant than I expected, Fonte dei Tufi is quite gorgeous, very comfortable and nicely furnished, with lots of hot water in the lovely bathroom, and decent heating. Daniela was a fantastic host - a real natural and perfect for the job. Very pleasant garden for outdoor relaxation. Very professional, very nice. I would easily have stayed another night, or return.

Room Tip: Daniela kindly gave us the choice of rooms. We chose the room near the breakfast room which has a ni...

Everything was done with a smile, the staff wonderful, Gabriella always on hand to help or direct guests to wherever they wanted to go. The rooms large and clean, quiet at night, breakfast was perfect and for those English speaking travellers it is sometimes a relief to have questions answered in English. Gabriella is a gem
We were looking for a place just outside Siena as we were travelling by car and Fonte dei Tufi was perfect with parking and easy access to Siena (fee carpark by University) and motorways leading to other areas

I stop in this nice B&B with my boyfriend in the christmas period. it was very quiet as we were the only guests...but we really loved it!The B&B is nice and clean. The room was large and clean as well and I liked the "country style" furniture. If you are traveling by car, it´s perfect as it is enough close to the city for a visit but in a quiet and nice location perfect if you are looking for a relaxing holiday. Breakfast was good and with a good variety of cakes and sweets and some good "salty" option as well.We would surely go back when we´ll return to Siena!!!!!

Great friendly staff. Rooms clean and comfortable. Location is close to city but not in city, so bus stop right out front is convenient. If you have a car, I would recommend looking for an agroturismo, or if you don't, try and stay closer to the old town.
Rooms were very noisy as we could hear neighbours tv, and coming and goings (and more!).
Although rooms are meant to be vacated by 11am, we were rushed from our room soon after 10 as the girls were very efficiently trying to service the rooms, which made us feel a little awkward. Admittedly it was fairly late starts, however we enjoyed our evenings and so took our time in the mornings.
I really wanted to give better rating because they are lovely people, however best to tell real experience and not glossy feel good.

Great location especially if you have a car, only minutes to drive to the parking lot in Sienna for an evening dinner or a short walk to the bus stop to spend the day in Sienna. Easy to do day trips to Montalpulciano, Pienza and Montalcino form this location.
We had a room on the main floor facing the road and with the windows closed were not disturbed at all by the traffic.
Back garden is a great place to wind down at the end of a day of touring; we would bring a bottle of wine and some cheese out and enjoy the peace.
Breakfast was a good selection and plentiful, and Gabriella’s recommendations for dinner for all three nights were excellent.

The B&B is located outside Siena, with a parking space and bus station 1 min. walk from the room. The room was very spacious and cleaned every day. The B&B is located exactly on the road to Siena and that may cause noise during the Summer. However it is within 5 minutes drive to Siena. Gabriella was sweet and the breakfast was more than rich for hotel standards.
