We loved the Palio apartment. It was the perfect location, close to everything! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the balcony was priceless. Dionisio was very prompt in responding to our phone call when we arrived in Siena. Getting in and out of apartment was also very easy. The only requests we would make would be some hooks in the bathroom to hold robes/towels. Also maybe a couple of extra pillows and some extra towels? These are minor complaints though, we would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat. We simply loved it!

The perfect Siena apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is simply amazing. Looking over the iconic Piazzo del Campo and easily walkable to all parts of Siena. An incredible piece of history to be able to live in first hand.

The location is excellent. The apartment is small but charming and had everything we really needed.

  • 4 of 5

The view from the balcony is wonderful. The location is perfect. Our host was charming and very helpful. Only drawbacks were that the kitchen is really small and we did not have internet access. We would love to stay there again and highly recommend it to others. Even though the apartment looks onto a noisy piazza, it is silent once the shutters and french doors are closed. They provide an air conditioner that works beautifully but is a bit noisy!

The apartment was about location. Other than being on the piazza it was sub par.

  • 1 of 5

This holiday we have stayed in 14 different apartments, B & Bs, or hotels in Italy, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. All were far superior to this apartment. It could have been much better but little effort was put into making it so.

Siena is always charming but this rental was not.

Lovely stay in Siena

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Dionisio's apartment. He met us promptly and was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and the like. The apartment could not have been more centrally located, and it was amazing to step out on the balcony and overlook the Campo. During the day there is naturally a lot of noise rising from below, but since we were out most of the day enjoying the sights of this beautiful town it was not a problem. At night there is not much noise, and in any event the shutters do an excellent job of soundproofing the apartment. The bed is comfortable and the furnishings are lovely. The only caveat is that there is no WiFi available, which is difficult in today's world. I would stay here again and recommend it highly.
