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.
