Siena Hotels and Self-Catering

From Siena, Italy

Siena Italy - Jolly Hotel Excelsior

When looking for a hotel in Siena, you have two basic choices: a hotel in the historic center or a hotel on the city's outskirts.

A hotel in the center will be more convenient for city sightseeing, and--if you're like us--you'll enjoy walking Siena's quiet streets late in the evening when the daytime bus-tour crowds are gone. On the other hand, hotels near or beyond the city's walls offer more convenient parking--and if you want a swimming pool, you'll need to head for the hills (or at least for the suburbs).

Other places to stay

Apartments, villas, and farm or agriturismo accommodations are popular in Tuscany. A few apartments are in the city, but you'll find more in the surrounding countryside--and if you're traveling with a family or pet or want to enjoy a taste of rural Italy during the summer months, a restored farmstead or country house may be the perfect option.

We've put together six pages of listings for hotels, apartments, villas, and farmhouse accommodations. Most permit online reservations through our booking partner, Venere, whose rates are often lower than standard "rack rates."
