About This Listing
Casa di Osio is a family run beautiful bright and welcoming B & B in the heart of the historic center of Siena. Completely renovated is located in an old building notified of 1313 in the initial part of the main street.
Casa di Osio was born thanks to Benedetta, an hotelier with long-time experience, who, together with her husband Matteo and her family, decided to create a cozy and hospitable B&B, reference point for those who want to discover the old town of Siena, and breathe its fascinating atmosphere, just like the famous middle-age travelers used to do..
The house has passed down within the family from generation to generation, Osio in fact was the grandfather who, with his wife Giselda, shared his love for this town and for hats. In the first years of 1900 he created the first milliner’s shop and in a part of the house he created his own laboratory.
His daughter Bruna continued with this tradition, drawing inspiration from her parents and, started her own bridal collection

Benedetta and her husband were fabulous hosts. The room had a great view and was very clean. We loved it and we would recommend it to our family and friends. Even with her new born baby in her arms, Benedetta was always trying to accommodate us. Great location in the hub of Sienna. Breakfast featured little sandwiches, cereal, yogurt, and pastries. Most of the time, the GOOD coffee was the first thing to go. It was a great experience for our first visit to Sienna.
This place was in a great location (really close to the main square) and really clean. Bernadetta was easy to communicate with and responsive to anything we needed. The breakfast was great - a good mix of baked goods and meats and cheeses.
Matteo e Benedetta sono stati gentili, presenti, disponibili in caso di bisogno ma discreti. L'alloggio è centralissimo, praticamente nel cuore di Siena. La camera basica ma graziosa, ordinata e pulitissima così come il bagno che, seppure condiviso, era sempre in ottime condizioni. Unica pecca, forse, la colazione che mancava di frutta fresca, ma per un breve soggiorno non è certo stato un problema.
This place was lovely. The location is excellent, right on the main street of the town and easy to find. Matteo was an excellent host - very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were clean and bright, the wifi worked prefectly. My room did not look like the one pictured - it looked more like a student dorm room, but it was not a problem. The breakfast was great as well. Would definitely recommend.
Everythng was as expected and went smoothly. Unlike most places I've stayed in Italy, the bed and pillows were actually comfortable! The hosts were great and let me leave my bags for the day so that I didn't have to lug them around all day. I would definitely stay here again.
Bien accueilli par Benedetta qui m'a autorisé à déposer mon "lourd" sac à dos avant l'heure prévue, cette première relation semblait augurer d'un beau séjour car la situation de l'appartement proche du centre ville permet des déplacements très aisés.
Néanmoins je dois faire quelques observations :
- aucune consigne de respect des locataires n'est donnée et de ce fait certaines personnes présentes sont très bruyantes très tardivement et dérangent les autres occupants.
- Malgré les heures indiquées sur une fiche ( de 7 à 9h) le petit déjeuner ne peut être pris qu'à partir de 8h et de ce fait ne permet pas d'effectuer des voyages au bus pour aller visiter d'autres villes
Mon impression est que Benedetta exerce quasiment une activité professionnelle mais qu'elle n'en possède pas la formation nécessaire.
Désolé pour la sévérité de mes propos mais je souhaite lui permettre d'être plus attentive aux besoins des locataires.
I had a lovely stay at Benedetta's place. On arrival, I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the whole B&B! The room was nice and clean with a comfortable bed. Breakfast buffet simple but tasty with delicious home made cakes! Also I appreciated Benedetta's flexibility and ability to serve the breakfast earlier to let me catch my morning train to the airport. Location perfect in the heart of Siena surrounded by great bars/restaurants and shops. Also, the bus stop is just around the corner what make it easier to travel to other destinations for a day visit. Thank you!
