It is on the 4th floors of a 15the-century building in the pedestrian area. The historic building does not have a lift and there are 92 steps to climb.
Thanks to the best location and the good neighborhood, in this area you will find everything you are looking for: from bar where you can have a nice breakfast, to restaurants, where you can enjoy the typical Italiam dinner and Tuscan food.
Host is very gentle and flexible.

Large bathrooms and showers are very good.

Beds with good mattress and linen.The mezzanine where the single beds are have less privacy and located a bit far from the living room window.
Overall a good experience.
We were running a bit late and had some trouble finding a suitable place to leave the car as the GPS was directing us into the ZTL zones. Ennio was very helpful and guided us to a suitable parking spot over the phone and then met us halfway to the apartment.
As per the other reviews, it can be tricky to find and is a fair walk with luggage from the car. Ennio helped us up the stairs with our luggage thankfully as it is quite a hike.
The apartment is well located, clean, accurate as per the description and with a lovely view over Siena. It was the perfect location for exploring the city whilst not being right in the middle of all the chaos.
Ennio also gave us a quick run down on the apartment and explained some of the sights in the city so that we had our basic bearings. He then offered to help us with anything during our stay which was nice.
This beautifully renovated top-floor apartment is in the historic center of Siena, with a view that is just breathtaking. It is in the Porcupine neighborhood and if you go in the summer you will feel a part of the Palio neighborhood competitions.
The apartment is walking distance from the train station if you take the huge escalator to the top. If you drive, there is a huge free parking lot, also walking distance.
There are truly 92 steps but they are shallow steps and we were not out of breath at the top.
The apartment has a master bedroom and a loft above the kitchen with two single beds. My only warning is that the stairs and railing of the loft are dangerous for little kids and will make you want to put the kids in the bedroom on the main floor and you sleep in the loft.
The air conditioners are awesome and silent.
The kitchen is fully stocked with full-size fridge and dishwasher and clothes washer.
The Internet worked very well.
This apartment has the best shower I have seen in Italy.
We loved this apartment! It had a fantastic view, nice location, and was very comfortable. The stairs are not that bad and I saw them as a way to burn off all the gelato and pasta. Ennio could not have been more helpful both when we were arriving and during our stay. It was a great experience all the way around.
Das Haus befindet sich in der schönsten Strasse von Siena, die Wohnung ist superschön und ruhig, der Ausblick fantastisch. Wir würden sie sofort wieder buchen!
The apartment was clean and well furnished (we were especially happy to find a washing machine, as we'd been on the road for a while before coming to Siena). The location was amazingly convenient for exploring the city and the area--only about 3 minutes to the major intercity bus stop. And the apartment itself is much more spacious than it appears in some of the photos. The view was just incredible.
Just writing this makes me miss Siena. We had a great time there! And we really can't say enough good things about Ennio. He's energetic, easygoing, very easy to communicate with, extremely helpful and considerate.

About the Host, Ennio
"the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"...(On the road)
