Nice, comfortable, clean. Amadeo very attentive and communicative. The apartment is classic and modern - the bathroom was very much up to date, with new towels. Back yard was a pleasant surprise - larger than expected, with patio, picnic table, umbrellas, small lawn, view of tile roofs, back balconies, and a bit of Tuscan countryside. Open kitchen, good appliances. We traveled as a family of 5 and the place was spacious for us. Location was ideal - easy walking to anywhere in the central, light traffic zone, yet a little removed from the dense flood of tourists. Supremely quiet, very stylish. We would love to return. Grazie mille, Amedeo!
Large apartment in a great location, with easy access. The stay was very comfortable, loved the garden. A good base to enjoy Siena.
This apartment was unfortunately affected by a musty damp smell. The host has tried to lessen this using air-freshener and potpourri but this only worsens the problem.
I am not normally affected by allergies but on this occasion I found it hard to stay in the apartment for long periods without needing to go out for fresh air (due to the damp smell). I hope they can rectify this for future tenants.
The wifi works but is problematic.
Location is good and you can walk to all the sights.
Thank You for staying at our Brown apartment. We will try to solve the problem, you have kindly advised, for our future guests. Usually wifi works properly but sometimes it can happen not to have a perfect signal and it is something out of our responsibility.
Ciao Amedeo, ti ringrazio molto la casa era molto carino. solo aspettando il breacfast non abbiamo trovato e la connessione internet non funziona bene. ma il resto molto buono. eccellente. grazioso giardino e posizione.
Good and fast communication. Great location in Sinea - safe and quiet.
Excellente semaine. Appartement parfait pour passer une semaine entre amis à Sienne avec un hôte disponible et sympathique.
Amedeo was reliable and welcoming. He communicated with us quickly and easily, and was always right on time when we met him for check in or check out.
The Brown apartment is a lovely property on the ground floor of a relatively quiet street in old Siena, a great location in every way. It is furnished very artfully and provided ample accomodations for our family of 5.
We really enjoyed having the garden space out back to relax and eat meals in. The kitchen was well-equipped and very useful. Small grocery is a block or two away.
