This was our first night stay in Italy and we arrived just on time for the beautiful sunset overlooking Sienna. The surroundings, the kindness of the host, the easy walk to the center of town (15 minutes) made us wish we could stay another day or two. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Certainly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Very welcoming, a view across the Tuscan countryside to die for, superb breakfast (including homemade croissants and cakes), lovely rooms. It's a good 20/25 minute walk into town, mostly uphill, but there are frequent local buses if you don't want to walk. Could not have enjoyed my stay more.

This has been by far the best stay my girlfriend and I have had in all of Europe! The hotel is situated on a hilltop overlooking the entire town. The villa itself is gorgeous and wonderfully refurbished. The grounds are beautiful and aromatic. When we arrived, they were very helpful and hospitable. He explained everything about the room and getting to and from town (which is extremely simple) and had an answer for every question. He also recommended a great restaurant, Osteria de Logge which was beautifully tucked away in a quiet street corner. Our room was clean, spacious, and it's so quiet there that we slept with the window open all night without hearing a single sound! Our only regret--and it was a big one--is that we didn't stay longer. Stay here, you won't regret it.

Finding the Hotel late evening was a nightmare. We wasted over an hour searching for it. The directions were horrible. If you are headed towards Siena Sud the hotel is on the left-hand side of the road. If you are headed towards Porta Romana/City walls, the Hotel is about a mile before you hit the city wall on the right-hand side of the road. We stopped at a restaurant to ask for directions only to find that it was right across the street from the restaurant. A tiny marble plaque with the hotel name inscribed on it was all that identified the hotel. It was a tight squeeze through the hotel gates. Thank God for the small car we rented. The hotel staff were great and spoke very good english. The interior room we rented on the first floor was nice, rustic, clean and comfortable. No AC needed in October. We had a great night sleep. It was very quiet and peaceful and the morning view of the Siena landscape was incredible. Choose the exterior rooms on the first floor or the upstairs rooms for better landscape views. Shower stalls could be larger. Breakfast was great. Loved the breakfast area……very cozy. Palazzo di Valli could have done with some better outdoor seating to enjoy the views and some better amenities….. room service or maybe even a hotel wine list which patrons could depend upon while enjoying the hotel gardens. All in all, Palazzo di Valli was a great stay in Italy.

Quiet place with great view and not far from the city center. Linen and towels were thin and wery soft. Nice decoration of the rooms. Breakfast was ok. But we did not get any cheese or meat, as someone wrote below. The only thing I did not like was the door to WC. Very old and not good looking.

Overall the hotel was great, the room very spacious, bathroom huge, the breakfast adequate, and the views are absolutely outstanding, with plenty of parking. The building itself has quite a history and perhaps this information should be made available to guests. The hotel is within walking distance of Il Campo, but the local bus is a better option and the bustop is only 50 mtrs away - remember to buy your bus ticket at the tabacchi opposite the stop. When coming off the Firenze-Siena road, remember to take the Siena Sud exit and follow the signs for Porta Romana. This will take you up Via Piccolomini and the hotel driveway is on the right - look out for the hotel name on the brass plaque on the wall. The Trattoria directly opposite the driveway is reasonable, but the service was very mediocre.

This was the most unique and beautiful place we stayed during our recent trip to Italy. If you don't mind walking just a little ways or taking the bus into the center of town, I would highly reccommend this "country villa." Just think "Under the Tuscan Sun" and you'll have a good idea of what this place is like.

La ciudad es increíble, pero el hotel resultó ser muy tranquilo y agradable y la mujer que nos recibió también. Enseguida nos entregaron la habitación y estaba muy limpia, con ventana a la calle pero muy muy tranquila. Vale decir que la tranquilidad es algo que sorprende de Venecia, sobretodo por la carencia de autos, que suele ser infernal en el resto de las ciudades italianas. Volvería a este hotel.

It's the best place to stay in Siena, so close and so far from the centre, at the same time. It gives a sense of staying in the countryside, with beautiful surroundigs and spectacular view. But is only a 15 minutes' walk from the centre of Siena, plus there's a bus for those who don't fancy walking.

The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the city,a nd a taxi-ride from the station. Our triple room was quaint and clean, with views across the Tuscan fields towards Siena. There is no restaurant in the hotel, and on the Sunday night, when we arrived, no restaurant open locally, but there are plenty of restaurants in Siena, all well worth the walk into the city. Siena is magical in every way, and this hotel an excellent base for seeing it. It is probably not convenient for the less than able-bodied, as it has steps up to it, but the staff were welcoming and helpful with luggage. Breakfast is basic, but you don't go to Siena for the breakfast. The hotel has no facilities, other than bed and breakfast and restful gardens and views, but that is all you need.

As I was spending a week studying in Siena the Palazzo di valli was very suitable. Nice relaxing walk into town about 15-20 minutes or a very accessable bus service, stopping just at the hotel road entrance. Very helpful staff, great internet access provided by staff on desk. The setting outside the town wall in an olive grove was excellent.

We stayed at several hotels in Italy and the Palazzo di Valli was probably the nicest. The receptionist was very helpful and provided us with a free map of Pisa and told us about city parking and buses, but we decided to walk into the City Centre which took around 20-25 minutes. Our room was lovely and overlooked Sienna and the Tuscan Hills. We were very impressed by the painted ceiling. The bathroom was reasonably modern and had the bonus of under floor heating. The gardens and terrace were well maintained and it was lovely to come back from a day's sightseeing to the peace and tranquility of the Palazzo di Valli. We recommend the restaurant just across the road where we had a lovely meal at a reasonable price. Breakfast was not self-service and we were each given a large glass of juice a (rather too big & sweet) fresh custard filled croissant, a freshly made huge cappucino, yoghurt and plate of cheese and meat. We had read previous reviews about the difficulty of finding the hotel so we were on the look out for the entrance which was via a gate in a high wall and very narrow. Look out for the hotel name on a plaque on the wall.

My wife and I and our two kids stayed in a quad for only one night. We would have liked to stay longer. Hotel was a little hard to find because it is hidden from the main road behind a court yard entrance. They have free parking which a plus since we were traveling by car. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Room was reasonable size in this converted house that is about 300 years old. Views of the Tuscan hills from the back patio and our room were beautiful. Getting into downtown, the options were either a bus, which did come frequently, or a long walk (15-20 minutes) to the edge of downtown. We opted to drive and park as close to downtown as possible. Breakfast was downstairs in a room with a view and was simple with no fruit or protein but their capucino was excellent. Recommended.

We just returned from Italy including 3 nights at Palazzo di Valli. Of the three hotels we stayed at during our trip this was our favorite. We had a triple room in this 300 year old palazzo. The price was exactly as quoted and a bargain for the location and quality. The room was large and had a very clean and modern bath. Very lovely grounds, small olive gardens, roses,benches to sit and take in the Tuscan sun. We were astounded when we opened the shutters on the windows to our room to see a view of the Tuscan country side that was right out of a travel magazine.Very large windows opened to a view of rolling hills, palazzos,churches, vineyards and olive groves.Very quiet and off the main rode location( on SR2 from Rome, 1000 M from Siena entrance). Hotel is small and we had the feeling we were staying at a friends country house.Breakfast consisted of large coffees, bread and rolls. Staff (all spoke English very well) was very helpful with directions etc. easy walk to Siena or there is a local bus right outside the gate.Have already recommended to several friends and would definately stay here again on a return trip.

We wanted to be in the country but also accessible to Siena, and this was perfect! It's a lovely old palazzo which has been divided into very spacious rooms. I requested a room with a view and what a view. The windows were open with the shutters closed when we arrived. Both the bedroom and bathroom (which was new and equally spacious) had spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside, with a view of Siena as well. It was an easy walk to the centrum, and there were buses as well. Also ample parking for rental cars. We used this as a hub for touring about Tuscany and Umbria. The staff were helpful with directions and the breakfast was nice. We would definately stay there again.

Gorgeous scenery: Tuscan countryside. Would have been very helpful to have better directions to get there from a major highway. It may have been a 10 minute walk to the city wall, but easily 30-40 minutes to the center of town: a bit more than I'd want to do 2 round trips a day of. But the bus was quick; buy tickets at a Tabacci first. We would probably go back there.

The room that we got was not up to the expectations built up by the lovely web pictures. As the pictures show, our room did indeed have a high, beautifully painted ceiling and expensive bedspread on the double bed and curtain treatments, as well as nice furniture and decorations. The effect was greatly spoiled, however, by an unpolished floor, pictures (impressive lithographs in expensive frames) hung too high and in odd places, a cot-like third bed with a cheap bedspread, and a shabby and noisy small refrigerator. Other rooms seemed a lot better put together, however, and another guest gushed to us when we were arriving that the place was heaven. It well could be if you got a room that suits you.

Palazzo di valli is a beautifil place to stay. We had (I guess) the best room with a wonderful view (which normally costs more than the price we booked for). Breakfast is very nice. The only annoying thing was the construction a few meters from our window, were they started working at 7 in the morning.

The "Palazzo de Valli" is located a little far away from town and really hard to find. The hotel stuff informed us about the possibility to go easily by bus to the city, but it takes 15min. They even did not offer any bus tickets; we stepped into bus in the evening and found out thet we won´t be able to buy a ticket inside nor outside the bus. I did not like to ride without paying. The room was very spacious and had a very romantic view over Siena and a wonderful and unforgetable Tuscan view! This beautiful view compensates the high price for this hotel. In the morning you wake up by humming birds.....but: I also did hear the sound of Disco at night which war less nice. But in the morning the atmosphere in the breakfast room is romantic and full of tuscan countryside feeling. Therefore the Palazzo understand to compensates it´s weak points and at the end you´ll like it very much.

Beautiful building, beautiful scenery, dramatic driveway entrance to the house, nice easy walk into the city center. Better location for those driving themselves than those who take the train and taxi the way we did. Biggest complaint - there are animals in the surrounding area - cats, dogs and some other unidentifiable creatures that screeched, barked and generally made a huge racket ALL night long, every night. Also, you can basically hear everything that is going on in every room, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place. If you want great views of Tuscany, with vineyards out side your window, it is. Also, the young gentleman at the front desk was the most unhappy person I have ever met. He was efficient and consise and informative, but so depressed it cast a pallor over the entire stay. But the owner is a joy and very sweet and happy to share stories of the house and environs.

A very nice property, with lovely views over the Tuscan countryside and views of Sienna itself. Very spacious rooms with traditional furnishings. Unfortunately each of our 3 nights was spoilt by loud disco music playing somewhere down in the valley which went on until approx. 4 a.m.

We only stayed one night, our first night in Italy and this was a perfect location. The view from the breakfast room is spectacular and the breakfast was the best of our entire trip. The location is perfect, step out the door and there are the most famous sights of Florence. Good restaurants right down the street, what else can you ask for?

In terms of proximity to the city, Palazzo di Valli is a bit inconveniently located. However, the hotel is very pretty and is located on a hill with a gorgeous view of the Tuscan countryside. The walk into town takes about 15-20 minutes. A city bus which stops outside of the hotel will take you into town or to the train station. Be aware that bus tickets must be purchased at the Tabachi shop and cannot be purchased on the bus. Taxis are a better option if you are in a rush. The reception desk was not staffed full time so you are pretty much on your own once you get there. The breakfast was average.

Pallazo di Valli, although a bit difficult to find (because of the streets in Siena), was a dream come true. The rooms are spacious, very clean, well decorated and give a very "homey" feeling. The most spectacular part, however, is the view from the hotel and the room windows. The position of the hotel allows guests to wake up to views of the beautiful Tuscan countryside as far as the eye can see. The employees were more than helpful and welcoming...very detail oriented. If you plan in staying in Siena and are looking for an "old-fashioned" hotel which embodies the Tuscan "feeling", Pallazo di Valli is definitley a MUST.

This hotel has beautiful gardens and quiet location, just outside of Siena town wall. The room is good size with beautiful view and modern bathroom. We had problem finding the hotel because the map/direction on the website was illegible. Breakfast was too skimpy. But overall, a nice and friendly property.

Terrific location; country feel, but within 20 minutes walking distance to city center of Siena. Awakened to roosters and beautiful sunrise over Tuscany. Spacious, spacious rooms. One of the (male) greeters was less than gracious, but the others were great, including the owner, who was very enthusiastic about his property. Breakfast was "packaged food," which was less than we expected given the price of the room. Otherwise, terrific!

A beautifully situated hotel in sight of Sienna town with views all around of the Tusdan hillside. Directions could have been more detailed as signs were confusing. Head in the direction of Porta Romana and the hotel is in the road that leads down from the Gate on the left-hand side with a very narrow entrance. Plenty of car parking space and if you like a good walk you can get to the town on foot. Some local tourist information at the hotel would have been helpful, although some staff did speak very good English. Breakfast is typical to the area and the Manager and staff were polite and obliging.

Our overall stay was good, though I had one major problem with the property owners. They would switch off all the lights at the reception area and near the rooms. So when you get to the hotel at say 9:00 PM or later, it is in total darkness, and you have to find the switch to turn on the lights!

More of a guest house than a Hotel which surprised us a little but maybe all the better for it. Big spacious rooms and bathrooms. Handy location if you are not partying out late as bus runs just a 100 yards away into town. Very nice but breakfasts may be on small side for some.

No one to greet us that spoke english- but very friendly and tried to be very helpful. Walking distance to Siena- about 10-15 minutes. Beautiful view. We slept with the windows open and were there on the weekend so it was a little noisy at night. All in all it was a pretty nice place to stay for seeing Siena.

Suites with full kitchen, upstairs bedrooms all in excellent condition. Since it was a guesthouse we were responsible for our own cleaning, but this was not a problem. Swimming pool just down the street. Air conditioning would have been nice, as the rooms upstairs get a little hot in the evening for sleeping. I'd definitely return.

a beautifully restored villa really quirky decor and stunning views of the city; also within walking distance. There is no air conditioning (Which fits with the age of the building - but you may find uncomfortable) and staff were a little reluctant to arrange breakfast in our room, but we got there in the end.

This is the second time in four years we have stayed at this hotel. It is lovely. Because it is outside the city walls and overlooks the hillside, it is almost like being out in the country. On the other hand, you have to be willing to either walk or drive into the city. For us, the tradeoff is worth it. I'd go back again and again.
