Lovely small hotel, close walk from historic Siena
Posted Oct 7, 2014
We enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Villa Elda on our recent honeymoon in Tuscany. This small hotel is located a short walk (perhaps 10 minutes) from the historic center of Siena. We found the staff, including Riccardo and Sara, to be very helpful and pleasant during our stay. Riccardo provided excellent recommendations for meals, and Sara gave us easy and accurate directions to the next stop on our trip, as we headed towards the coast and the island of Elba. Thank you again!
The hotel is small and very well maintained, and our room was spotless. A buffet breakfast was served from 0800 - 1000 inside the hotel, but tables were also available outside in the garden. After we helped ourselves to bread, ham, cheese, marmalade, fruit, and yogurt inside at the buffet and sat outside, hot beverages were served directly to us in the garden. We met and chatted with several lovely couples (hello Andy, Tracy, Libby and Michael!) over breakfast in the garden.
Siena is a gorgeous city, and Hotel Villa Elda is a comfortable, quiet spot just a short walk away to explore it from.
