Hotel Villa Elda
Ranked #10 of 40 Hotels in Siena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We loved our stay at Villa Elda. The hotel was beautiful with amazing views. We had a room on the top floor with panoramic views; we could see the Duomo and had a lovely view of the Siena skyline; just gorgeous. A side note, the hotel does not have a lift and the stairs are very steep. The staff will help you with your luggage, but the stairs could be a problem for some people. The staff was wonderful. They even helped us set up a picnic dinner outside in the courtyard and provided wine glasses, plates, etc.. Very accommodating. Our room and bathroom seemed very new/recently renovated and the location was wonderful. In a quiet residential area about a 15 minute leisurely walk to the city center. Would highly recommend and plan on staying here again on our next trip to Siena.

Room Tip: If you can get a room with a panoramic view, I would!

We found the location to be excellent, close enough to the Piazza that we were able to comfortably walk back and forth.
Our room was a basic room, average size, nothing special. As a spot to just sleep while visiting Siena it is fine. Breakfast was the standard, buns, yogurt, cheese and meats.
Villa Elda has a roof top terrace which provides a very nice view of the Siena skyline, however there are no chairs, tables or umbrellas. Perhaps they don't really want you up there. We found this disappointing.

Dear Guest,
We thank you for your stay in Hotel Villa Elda.
We regret that you didn't appreciate the style of the hotel, which emerged in 1920s together with Liberty style, or Art Nouveau, how it is called in France. The style is linear and simple, in harmony with the nature. Following your comment we understood, that with time we will decorate the ambience with the help of tuscan craftsmen, to make the hotel more beautiful.
The terrace, as you noticed, is only for the family at the moment, because we would like to finish the necessary works to make it open to public.
We thank you again for chosing Hotel Villa Elda and we hope to see you as our guest again.

We loved this hotel! The staff was incredible - very gracious and the whole place was beautiful. It's in a residential area just outside Siena near the soccer stadium but it's only a brief walk to everything. A stunning & safe neighborhood - will definitely stay again!

Villa Elda's proximity to the bus station at Piazza Gramsci was very useful to us as we were traveling by bus from Rome. It was easy to get our luggage to the hotel. Location was fantastic! It was in a quiet, pretty residential area. The staff were professional and always smiling! Lovely breakfast room and gardens. Room was simple and plain but very clean.

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The rooms are lovely with beautiful views. The ladies (Barbara and Veronica?) at the front desk were more than kind and extremely helpful. The views from the roof top are breathtaking and worth the steps to see it. Also, the grounds are beautiful with a gorgeous garden that we enjoyed in the afternoon with a glass of wine. The hotel is in a perfect location to walk into town. The down side are the showers are extremely small. If you drop the soap you could be in trouble. Also, the walls are very thin. Our first night there we had very rude people beside us that came in around midnight and were very loud and noisy. We didn't hear them again so they must have left. Over all it is a very nice place in a perfect location.

The rooms are lovely, the breakfast great, the location good, but the thing that makes this hotel top rated is its staff. The three young people who cover the desk also serve as concierges, breakfast hosts, porters, and whatever else you might need. We met the owners too, but what they've done best is hire great people who really enjoy what they do. We were on the third floor (walk up) and had great view of San Domenica and the Duomo. The Wednesday morning market is right around the corner (great fun) and the main part of the town is a 15 minute walk. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want the view, ask for a "panoramic" room.

Overlooking the Duomo but in a quiet residentaiul neightbourhood, this hotel was really lovely. The staff were so fantastic, gracious, helpful and interested in what we were doing. The rooms were very comfortable though the showers are a little tight- bending to get the soap could be a problem- but our room was lovely overlooking the quiet garden where we could have our coffe or take a drink i the evening. A short 10 minute stroll to the centre ot town and close to the Wednesday market which is huge beside the alls of the castle. All in all we highly recommend this private hotel- would go back tomorrow if we could!

Room Tip: Ask for one with a ensuite bathroom.
