We really liked our stay there. It was near the city centre, the staff was really nice and helpful. They served good breakfast in the garden and there is also equipped kitchen available for the guests.We would definitely recommend Casa di Alfredo to other guests.


Perfect location wonderful wellcome from owners perfect hosts!


This was an ok place to stay. Comfortable, clean but staff were very hit and miss. Some were very friendly and others very rude. The breakfast was good for a free breakfast but as we had the room next to the kitchen we were woken up at 6am due to the noise.


If walking from the train station: there is a passageway with 10 travelators/ escalators that cuts straight through the giant hill!!!! First escalator starts outside the big Pam supermarket. Would've been nice if we had this tip from the hostel - the alternative is an indirect winding uphill road that takes you around a wall and back again. Great breakfasts, nice big room, excellent location. Watch out for city tax €2,50 pp/night.


Absolutely beautiful house and great location! Our apartment was incredibly clean and safe with lots of space. The breakfast was included in our cost and was delicious. We traveled in a group of six and every one of us agreed that we would recommend Casa Di Alfredo to anyone we know who travels to Siena!


TERRIBLE After arriving in Siena at 6PM we attempted to check in. We rang the door, knocked and waited outside for 30 minutes...Nothing. We decided to wait at a local diner until 8pm in hopes the owner would show up. At 815PM we knocked, rang the door bell and waited for a response...Nothing again. We called the number and no response still. At this point, it was 9 PM and we were in a new city with no hotel. We had to do a last minute check in for $70 more 3 blocks away. Do not recommend!

can not be what you have written because we are open from 6 am to 20 pm, so maybe you have the wrong structure, the mobile phone is always on and there are no calls will be confidential nm it to another number


Positiv: Central location in front of the city gates and in between city and train station. Basic, but clean. Affordable price. The people cleaning our room were really nice. Negativ: Our room was next to the bathroom, which was quite noisy. Also above our room was the breakfast room and it was hard to sleep after breakfast started. A decent luggage storage would have been appreciated.


Very well situated just outside City gate, within easy walking of all sites. An interesting building and helpful staff


Fantastic place for the price. Friendly staff and a great breakfast. Highly recommend!


We enjoyed our stay there, the room was good and the breakfast was very good! We just had a small problem with the share bathroom. Nobody cleaned it for two days and the smell was bad. Also on the second day there was no toilet paper.


The staff were lovely! Having access to the kitchen was perfect for making your own dinner. The room was wonderful, gave the perfect italian experience!

You feel like at home!


I had booked a single room, so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself in a nice large room with a doublebed when i got there, I guess they had it available so didn't mind putting me in a nicer room that the one booked! the place is nice and neat, centrally located, very close to the main bus stop in downtown Siena - piazza Gramsci. The breakfat is more than abundant. The staff are nice and friendly. Thumbs up!


We stayed at Casa Di Alfredo for two nights, and it was such a great choice. It was in a decent location (usually took us about 10 minutes to walk from there to wherever we needed to go) and was extremely secure. The staff was very friendly and they made us a big breakfast! Thanks for making our trip to Siena even more wonderful!
