Historical Traveller Reviews of Borgo Grondaie Hotel
A little slice of paradise!from redbellies
Having the grocery store there (and what a place that is!) was exceptional for us. We loved eating simple for a few days. We rented a car and drove to the coast (Castiglione, very nice), and spent time driving through the wine/olive region of the Tuscan Hills. You can easily get a bus or cab into Town, a bit of a walk, but if you like hiking, you can do it.
Siena is such a wonderful place to us. The Borgo Grandaie was super! The furnishings are special, the linens great, bathrooms spotless, kitchen was well equipped, staff were very kind and helpful at any time. We welcomed the chance to do our laundry and loved the dryer racks, it felt like we were natives, hanging our wash out!!!
Don't miss this great place! A top notch accomodation, truly! 5 Stars!

LOCATION: We had a rental car, and so found it easy to get to Siena. Parking around Siena was not too difficult. Please ask the hotel for exact directions as we had difficulty finding small or non-existent street-signs in the dark. After crossing the railway bridge, there is a small roundabout in front of you. Take a hard right, the Co-op (large store which looks like a warehouse) will now be on your left. Follow the little road around the Co-op, keeping the shop on your left, and continue up the hill. The Borgo Grondaie is at the very end of the road. You will find the parking in front of the property to your right.
PROPERTY: Fresh looking, modern Tuscan styled 'villas' set in a small hillside, overlooking Siena and the railway track. Rooms are of moderate size. TV, mini-bar, wardrobe, phone, desk/chair. Bathroom is very nice and clean. Buffet breakfast, which is plentiful and of good quality, is served either indoors or out on the terrace. Parking is provided.
STAFF: Very nice, polite, and willing to help. Speak English very well and happy to help those learning Italian.
Unfortunately ours was a short visit to Siena, however we would consider returning here again... now that we know how to find the place.

’t Have Been Better!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Don’t miss the wine cellar.. and order a snack of salami, cheese, tomatoes…..mmmmm. Truly magnificent!
This hotel is easy to find once you find the train station! One problem we had was identifying the appropriate sign pointing the way. The symbol for the station is a 3D image of a modern train coming towards you. The signs aren’t large and this symbol just didn’t click for us. Once we figured it out we were able to locate the hotel very easily
Borgo Grondai is great!from A TripAdvisor Member
Loved it!from jojoMelbourne
As mentioned, the pool was bliss. In addition, the breakfast was fantastic - the best I have had in Italy.
I did not have a car, but with the buses (less than 1 Euro each way), taxis (about 6 Euro), and even lifts into town from other hotel guests, it was not a problem. Being a little out of town was a welcome relief from all the noise at some of my more centrally located accommodation along the way.
Highly, highly recommended.
Wonderful place to stay with kidsfrom NatBP
Roberto makes a delicious wine tasting with light meal at the hotel Enoteca.... highly recommended!
A dream come true!from Kal25

Top Local Tips for Siena
Remember Sundays... many shops are closed on Sundays, I had read this but forgotten...
Buses and Taxis in Siena If you stay outside of Siena instead of in the city proper, you'll need to somehow get into the city. Don't drive, you'll have to park outside and pay a lot for the privilege. If your hotel is inside the city, maybe you can drive in but be warned the streets are extremely narrow and packed with people. Siena is a very old city, not conducive to driving, so take a bus or taxi. The bus system is excellent, and inexpensive. Properties encourage this by providing bus tickets for purchase at cost, which if I recall correctly was 80 Eurocents. A taxi is appropriate if you've got several people, luggage, or can't wait for a bus. Taxis are allowed to go into the city proper too which Joe Tourist cannot, or should not, do. Buses stop at strategic points around the city but do not penetrate every street.
Siena Market Day THere is a huge outdoor market on Wednesdays (?? Double check the date) that is blocks long. Great place to get inexpensive clothes, housewares, linens. Very local and great buys. Must do if you are there during the week. It is open until 1PM
