“ok b&b”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

This b&b was nothing more than OK. The a/c worked minimally, the bed was uncomfortable, and the location is VERY noisy. Perhaps the worst part was the breakfast , which consisted of stale
croissants and cold coffee. I was disappointed, for the price we paid I got little value. The only highlight was the girl Roberta who worked front desk; she was so helpful and welcoming...to bad the owners don't give their employees the tools they need to succeed in doing a better job for their guests.

If you're OCD, you'll appreciate the attention to detail here at Fonte Dei Tufi! The rooms are immaculate, the decor is modern quality, the grounds are simple but beautiful, and there is thought put into making you feel welcome. As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe here. And you just can't beat cheerful, helpful service. :)
Thank you FDT!

We couldn't have chosen a better location to stay so that we could explore Sienna and the surrounding villages. We love the breakfast in the garden and the custom coffees were to die for. We met many members of the family and felt right at home. It is a short walk to the walls of Sienna and easy to hop on the autostrada for sightseeing. Our room was quiet and spacious. One night we brought wine, cheese and bread and ate in the quiet garden. Excellent stay!

Beautiful rooms and location, literally within sight of the (easy to figure out) bus stop, quiet, lovely grounds, terrific and friendly staff, great breakfasts, right off the autostrada. We stayed at four hotels in Italy, and this was by far the best place we stayed. I will recommend this again and again to friends going to Tuscany. The restaurant recommendations from the owner was spot on as well.

In all honesty this is more a mini (14 room) hotel disguised as a B&B. Family run by mother, daughter Gabriella, and daughter in law Rossella, all of whom were most welcoming and could not do enough to make your stay enjoyable. On our arrival we were greeted by the lovely Rossella, who was there at breakfast next day with that same big smile to light up our day, and even rushed out to kiss us both good bye the day we left. Ahhh, I am in love again ;-)

We stayed 3 days in the generously sized room 102 on the ground floor close to the dining room and reception so convenient for everything, and no need to lug suitcases up stairs. It was away from the road, with a view over the garden, very quiet and we slept wonderfully well.

Breakfast is generous, can be taken in the dining room or the garden, and has been well covered in other reviews.

We found it helpful to take advantage of the free parking at Fonte dei Tufi, take the bus into Siena (no. 54, every 15 minutes, from a stop 100m from the front door, and only €1.1 each way.) and thus save the hassle of one way streets and parking.

TIP: buy 2 tickets each at the machine at the bus stop for out and return journeys - there are no ticket machines at the stops in town.

Room Tip: We had room 102, which was generously sized and with a view of the garden. We had a quick peek in 10...

I was nicely surprised by the several calls from Gabriella trying to find out if we got lost the day we were booked to checked in.
The location from Porta Tufi is at walking distance but you can also drive and it's only 5 minutes away.
It was also very nice to have breakfast outside in the garden.

We stayed here on our trip through Italy. We actually got lost on the way here and arrived late. They kept the doors open for us past the arrival cut off time and even gave us something to eat when got there. It's a beautiful little bed and breakfast in an excellent location for getting into the city fast. The breakfast area was charming and the outdoor breakfast seating was beautiful. The staff is also amazing. We had a great time staying here and would recommend it to anyone. Already planning on returning on my next trip.
