Arrigo's apartment has a breathtaking and quiet view of Siena. After a few days in Rome it was nice to sit out on the porch with a bottle of wine and just take it all in. He is a gracious and welcoming host and I would recommend staying at his B&B to all my friends.
Great welcome and excellent local advice on restaurants and the city.
We are a married couple (both 30) on a romantic vacation in Tuscany end of July 2015. This apartment was everything we hoped (and more) for our 3 night stay in Siena!
Before our arrival Arrigo was incredibly helpful, he answered our questions promptly and gave us insight that helped us to make appropriate travel arrangements. He greeted us as arranged and was very friendly throughout. A simple breakfast was left out each morning with fresh juice and equipment for coffee/tea etc. As he lived next door he responded very quickly when we encountered an issue. We were very grateful for his recommendation for a day trip out to Monteriggioni to taste food and wine typical of the region. An all-round superb host!
The apartment was clean, well kept, well maintained, modern and characterful. There are two en-suite rooms which share a kitchen, dining table, terrace and lobby. The terrace overlooking the old town was nothing short of breathtaking! There are three flights of stairs between the main entrance and the apartment's door, but they are even, not too steep and well lit at night. The location was absolutely perfect - adjacent to the town's main bus stop, not far from the train station, a 10 minute walk from the main plaza but just far enough from the main streets to be tranquil.
We used public transport getting to/from Siena and for our day trip, which worked out perfectly.
Our double bedroom was ideal for a 3 night stay. The air-con was a blessing! The room was a good standard and very clean. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable, but pretty average I'd say. The Bathroom was well fitted and a good standard.
We had two minor issues through our stay. The first was a cold shower on the second morning of our three night stay when no hot water was available. Because it was 30+ degrees this wasn't too much of a hardship, but we messaged Arrigo to notify him of the problem and within 45 minutes we had hot water again. The second was a mix-up with our dirty laundry which we had bundled together in a refuse sack and left it on the bathroom floor before going out for the day. We realised the next day that it was missing - through no fault of his own our host had taking it out to the trash! We messaged Arrigo and within a couple of hours he had retrieved our laundry. No harm done and an excellent recovery from a completely accidental mix up!
Superb host, excellent apartment, beautiful city.
The view of the apartment is just AMAZING! It is perfectly located to visit everything and very quite, although it is in the middle of the city. We had a great time in Siena and will come back for sure!!
Arrigo was an excellent host - friendly, accessible and laid back. The room and private bath was comfortable and everything worked as it should. The view from the balcony off the breakfast room was astoundingly beautiful and tempted one to just sit there and enjoy it - but the exceptional location made it so easy to get to the Duomo, Piazza del Campo and the myriad narrow charming streets of Siena that we spent little time there. We only had one night and would enjoy returning to experience more of Siena.
Sienne est magique et le plus beau panorama est certainement celui de chez Arrigo.
Appartement confortable, très propre et superbement situé.
Allez-y les yeux fermés mais pas trop pour admirer la vue fantastique.
We had a great stay in Siena at Arrigo's B&B! He was helpful and accommodating when we arrived before check-in and suggested some great restaurants and places to see. Our room was nice, spacious and clean- and the A/C kept us cool! Breakfast was simple (as is typical in Italy) but the view made it spectacular. Thanks for a great time in Siena!
We stayed in Arrigo's B&B for two nights and had a great time there. The location was great: Very close to all sights and the view was just amazing. The room was spacious and clean and we were grateful for the air condition.
We had a wonderful week in Arrigos charming appartment. The room is spacious and clean, and both the room and the bathroom are beautiful. Arrigo is a great host, and we will definitely come back! Bonus: the appartment has without doubt the best view in the city!
Arrigo is a great host! The bed and breakfast is very clean and has the best view in town! We really enjoyed our stay there!
Very nice man, polite, respectful, 100% recommend
Arrigo was pleasant and respectful and a pleasure to host.
Due to the guest stay being so short and the lack of interaction we don`t feel qualified to leave a descriptive comment about the guest.
Arrigo is a very nice person. Sociable, patient and a man who enjoys the little things that make the life happier. It was a pleasure to meet him. Thanks for coming and I hope next time we could stay with him more time.
