"This is a spacious [16 sq meters], comfortable room with an ideal combination of old-world charm [clay-bricks and wood-beams ceiling], modern finishes, an amazing rooftop view of Siena [the same as in the opening scenes of 007 Quantum of Solace movie], and an ideal location [300 meters from Piazza del Campo]".
The room is flooded with natural light all day long and is equipped with an early 1900 brass chandellier as well as various lamps for a total of fourteen bulb lights! There is no TV set and no minifridge but there is even a printer, disguised in the wardrobe, with a ready-to-use USB connection cable which arrives directly to the table. Moreover, there are multiple adapters in the the old handmade chest of drawers (search in the first drawer or ask me) but there is no bin because it is only a simple private room (in other words: it is not an hotel). Indeed it is my very own room for more than 330 days a year and I have never found difficult to leave some piece of paper and/or a plastic bottle on the table for a while and later on bring them to the recycling bins in the kitchen. Otherwise hanging a plastic bag on the knoob of the door, as some guests actually did, is a very simple alternative. The toilet (as you can expect in a private house) is cleaned once a day usually in the morning and then it is to guests (sometimes there is also another guest in a single room as well as myself) to be considerate and leave the toilet as it is found. Furthermore, of course like in evry house there are always some extra rolls of toilet paper; however, they are not lying around but they are in the second drawer (there are only two) under the basin. It is obvious, isn't it?
Siena old town is a traffic restricted area and it is usually extremely quieter than similar towns. However, during the days preceding the Palio the old town is very busy or even chaotic with many parties in the contradas where sometimes live music is played. According to the town regulations music must be stopped by 24:00 (or only under exceptional circumstances by 1:00 or 2:00am) but due to unknown reasons it was played for somehow longer during that night. For this reason I have already offered my sincerest apologies to my guest. On the other hand, even if I acknowledge that noise and emotions can enhance sensations I find surprising that is possible to smell other people from odourless polyurethane foam pillows and bedlinens washed at 40°C for 3 hours! Overall, the room has usually been found at least acceptable by the very large majority of people and some of them have rated the room as one of the most memorable where they have ever been.
