I'd echo all the other reviews about the service at Villa Elda. The property is just what I imagined and hoped for. Its also a little closer to the square than I thought.

Anyone who complains about the size of the rooms is just someone who has to complin about something. Size was very adequate and not an issue unless you were living there for 30 days.

I stayed two nights in Villa Elda while I was looking for a month long apartment in Siena and it was great experience. A nice breakfast is included every morning and on my arrival late Sunday night, I inquired whether any of the breakfast items were gluten free since I am Celiac. 8am the next morning, the staff gave me a giant basket of gluten free pastries, breads and assorted items that they had gone out and bought especially for me, no charge. That was incredible service!

The rest of the hotel matches that experience of service. The rooms were beautiful and had amazing views of Siena. The location was quiet and just outside the city walls. There is both a great patio and a roof deck to enjoy. I'd definitely stay there again.

We stayed 6 nights at Villa Elda while I attended a language school.

The hotel is located in a residential, quiet part of town, just outside the city walls, near a very nice park. Walk to the campo is approx 15 mins.

As has been mentioned in prior reviews, the main attraction is the excellent customer service provided by the owner Giorgia and her staff. Also, the place is kept super clean. It was a delight to come back to every day.

As negatives I have to point out the small size of the room and bathroom. Maybe it is only our room, I don't know as I didn't see others.In retrospect, I should have asked them if anything bigger was available as we were staying 6 nights. However, we had a lovely view of the city from our front window and the A/C worked perfectly.

All in all, it was a very good experience. We enjoyed its location , close to the action but not on top of it.

Owner Giorgia and the ladies at the desk provided the highest level of service during our 3 night stay in July 09. They were so very helpful with driving directions, local things to see and do, and with a general bright and happy personality. The Villa Elda is more like a mansion with larger room and bathroom than you find in the regular hotels. Everything was clean and pristine. It has a beautiful outdoor garden area. Each morning we had our breakfast outside in the lovely setting with quick and efficient service by the staff. The Villa Elda is located in a quiet residential area, but is only a 10 minute leisurely walk into the center of Siena and the Piazza del Campo. The Villa Elda is unique and was one of the highlights of our two week travels through Italy.

We just returned from a nine night stay at the Villa Elda and have nothing but positive comments and memories regarding our stay there. From the peaceful morning's breakfast in the beautiful garden to the well maintained facilities and the enthusiastic and helpful staff, we enjoyed our stay immensely. We can't wait to return to Tuscany for another extended stay at the Villa Elda!

Villa Elda is a very nice and charming hotel in a quiet area outside the city walls of Siena. The rooms are clean, there is a sitting garden as well as a rooftop terrace with great views, and the service is exceptional. All hotel staff members we came in contact were so helpful and embodied "service with a smile." They prepared cappuccinos for us when we arrived and went out of their way to explain the origin of the "Palio" (horse race that takes place in Siena twice a year). The hotel is located in a charming and upscale residential area that offers great views and is a 10 minute walk to the city part. Overall, highly recommended.

Villa Elda is an elegant old home which has been converted to a hotel. It has a wonderful roof terrace with great views of the old city of Siena and out into the Tuscan hills. Breakfast is served in a lovely garden. The quiet residential neighborhood was such a delight after Rome and is in easy walking distance of the sights of Siena. Our groundfloor room was large with very tall ceilings, and a large bathroom. Breakfast was a very nice selection and great coffee. The staff is very good. Parking on the street was not a problem. We loved it and thought it a very good value.
