Although there was no elevator, the staff helped me to bring my luggage up
It was really great that I can use kitchen anytime that I want, and also, they prepare some snacks and drinks for guests.

Great - we would stay here again!
The only downside to this property was having to walk up 4 flights of stairs to get to our room as there is no elevator. But as the entire old town is either walking uphill or downhill our legs got very strong so it wasn't that bad for us after the first day. Thankfully the owner carried our luggage up when we arrived and down when we left. We would happily stay here again.
Just a few minutes to the Campo piazza and nice to be able to walk the old town any time of the day or night. Made it great for picture taking when the streets were empty. Also the owner was so friendly and helpful to us. We had a big comfortable room and didn't have to share a bathroom - so we were happy. The property is old but management keeps it very clean.

Perfect location near to the main sights of Siena! Clean and comfortable. The breakfast with cereal, toast, pastries, yogurt, meats, juice etc. was good (especially considering that breakfast in Italy often consists of only coffee and a pastry.)

Very well located and worth the money.
It's really well located in the center of the old town. I walked from and to the train station without any problem (around 30 minutes walk). During the night you can hear a bit of noise from people on the street but it didn't bother me. I actually had my best night of sleep in 2 weeks. The breakfast is included and you can serve yourself whatever you like. There is coffee available as well.

Brilliant location, helpful host
The bathroom showers are a bit weak.
Brilliant location, and the host Landi went out of his way to help us all along.

Beautiful city shame about the locals in government or religious employ.
How difficult it was to find the place , nobody had heard of B and B Simonette including the local police force. Have to say locals in particular whose in the Cathedral employ and any others involved in regulated tourism were NOT pleasant, it was all too much trouble. Locals were great in particular a lovely lady who was going to work but took the time to show me PIazza Bonelli, others couldn't even describe how to get to the bus station Strikes me Siena needs to lift its game regarding tourists and not be so parochial.
My single bedroom over looked the Duomo, and I was very comfortable.

Reasonable price for a very central B&B. Good for a weekend break if you don't mind the noise.
The location is very central - just off the main plaza. However, due to this it is also very noisy at the weekend (when I stayed) as you get the noise from the restaurants, bars and then people going home plus the early morning clean up and delivery vehicles. The property is on the 3rd floor - lots of stairs so no good for anyone who has issues with these. The rooms are a bit dated (no air con, just a fan) as is the shared bathroom but it's clean and functional. Breakfast is a self-service drinks, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, small selection of packet meat and cheese with bread. Owner was helpful and allowed me to leave my bag after checkout before my train departed. City is lovely and the tourist info place had lots of suggestions of what to see in the time available.

Excellent view, excellent staff
You have to go up flights of stairs to get to the B&B and there is no elevator, which would be difficult for travelers with heavy luggage or families. Also there is only one bathroom/toilet shared by some of the guests.
Views from the room and terrace were fantastic. The staff was helpful when I had questions about town or arrangement for my departure. Great value for solo travelers.

This is the room with the view!
Parking might be a bit confusion for tourists.
The view from our room was stunning! we could see most of the landmarks from our windows. The building was from 14th century so the decoration of the apartment was just "WOW".

Stay in the heart of Siena.

Our initial directions had us arriving through the rear entrance instead of continuing around to the much easier front entrance although this was probably more a misunderstanding on our part.
Fantastic view, comfortable beds, very clean and owners helpful and friendly. Also very helpful with eating and travel recommendations. There are stairs but the view is definitely worth it and the owner was insistent he help with our luggage. We would stay again.
