Siena is worth visiting for many reasons. If you love medieval cities, Siena is full of beautiful buildings and the old town is a part of Unesco’s world heritage site too. It’s also known that Siena is one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Italy. If you’re visiting this charming Tuscan town, we can help you stay at one of the best hotels in Siena Italy.
It’s not just the city center of Siena that is so beautiful. As it lies in the magical Italian region of Tuscany (in my opinion it is the most beautiful anyway), there is so much to see. The vineyards, hills, and olive groves make it look like you are in a dream. Everything is so green and the golden hours are even sweeter here than anywhere else.

4. Secret Garden House
The Secret Garden House is another one of the top hotels in Siena Italy. Although it is considered a guesthouse and usually fully booked, we had to mention it. The ratings are 9.9 on booking.com and it’s also located in the center of Siena, just 450 yards away from Piazza del Campo.
The Secret Garden House is magical, with rooms overlooking either the city center or the house garden. The rooms have free Wifi, air conditioning, and barbecue facilities. While you stay here, you’ll have the whole house to yourself, to relax at and even cook your own food.

5. Podere Piazza Siena
Podere Piazza Siena is a beautiful option if you wish to have the whole house for yourself. One of the best hotels in Siena Italy don’t all have many rooms, some are villas and guest houses like this one. What does it offer? Well, let’s talk about the views first. You have the best garden views and you’re surrounded by nature.
The house features a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, fridge, and oven. Besides the living room and dining area, you have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Flatscreen TV with games and satellite channels is also an option if you wish to relax.
Although we do recommend you to stay outside as the terrace and garden are a great place to relax and get yourself a tan. What’s nearby? Well, Piazza del Campo is 1.4 miles away, so you would probably have to arrive by car if you wish to further visit the city. Customers gave this place a 9.8 rating.

6. B&B il Barbero
I was absolutely amazed by B&B il Barbero. The rooms are so stunning and the garden is even better, plus it’s one of the cheap hotels in Siena. But that’s not all, it is actually in the center, just 750 yards from Piazza del Campo, so you get the best of both worlds.
B&B il Barbero has a few rooms, which all have a private bathroom and TV included. Guests are also offered towels and linen. The terrace is stunning, everything looks so clean and neat, you just want to stay there and enjoy the views. Ratings are at 9.5 on Booking.com.
They also offer continental and buffet breakfast for their guests. The closest restaurants are Nonna Gina and Osteria del Gatto. As you’re in the center you get to see all of the attractions. We recommend you visit Basilica di San Domenico if you wish to be mesmerized by architecture.

7. Residenza d’Epoca Palazzo Borghesi
We also love boutique hotels in Siena Italy such as the Residenza d’Epoca Palazzo Borghesi. Once you are in this hotel you will feel like you’re in a fairytale. The rooms are decorated to perfection, the bathroom is probably my favorite. They have so many great reviews from guests and a 9.5 rating!
As the name suggests, the hotel is in one of the historic buildings once owned by the Borghesi family. The rooms have higher ceilings and still kept the original frescoes from 1800. Residenza d’Epoca is only a few steps away from the Piazza del Duomo Square.
Inside the hotel, they serve Italian breakfast, and you can get room service too, although they do not have a restaurant. For dining, we recommend going to Antica Osteria da Divo or Trattoria Le Logge. Other attractions nearby are Siena Cathedral and Torre del Mangia.

8. Palazzo del Papa Country Suites
We had to feature another one of these smaller accommodations and cheap hotels in Siena. The Palazzo del Papa Country Suites might look like they are an old building from the outside, but once you step inside you feel like you’re in a luxury hotel.
It is located a little bit outside of the main center, at 2.3 miles from Piazza del Campo. These apartments come with a kitchen which includes a microwave and fridge. The private bathroom can be found in the apartments as well. The terrace and garden are so beautiful and dreamy in the summer.
We have to talk about the interior design of Palazzo del Papa Country Suites. It looks modern and very elegant. Although it doesn’t have that many reviews, it still received 10 on Booking.com. Guests love how clean everything is and it’s only a few minute drive from the city center.

10. Grand Hotel Continental Siena – Starthotels Collezione
If you want to experience one of the 5-star hotels in Siena Italy then we have to recommend Grand Hotel Continental Siena. Some might visit Siena wishing to stay in not so luxurious places, but others might love the luxury and facilities a 5-star hotel can give. This one has already won our hearts with the interior design.
The building itself is from the 17th century and they have kept many features. For example, the rooms all have frescoed ceilings and the furniture is quite antique. Rooms feature porcelain and travertine marble details and the floors were also kept in their original floor, which is Tuscan terracotta floors.
You can dine at the Grand Hotel Continental Siena restaurant called Sapordivino as it offers gourmet traditional cuisine and why not have a drink at the Lounge Bar. The hotel is closest to Piazza Salimbeni and a few minutes away from Piazza del Campo as well.

The building itself is located on the hills of Gaiole in Chianti and the building is from 1898. There are a total of two rustic apartments.
