You’ve probably never heard of the Siena mattress… until now. That’s because Siena is a relatively new mattress on the market. It’s owned by Resident Home and responds to the budget-tier mattress market. Siena is an all-foam, affordable memory mattress that rivals big names like Nectar or Leesa

We like the Siena bed for its attractive price point. It’s a mattress that’s made for people on a budget. You get all the benefits of memory foam without having to pay the usual price tag. 

Since it’s still new, there isn’t as much versatility as you would see with other brands. It’s only available as an all-foam mattress. There’s no hybrid option available. Because of this, it’s maybe not the best option for the heavier folks, which we generally like to suggest hybrid options for. But the average memory-foam lover should try out a Siena mattress. 

Siena Mattress Firmness and Feel

How firm is the Siena mattress?

When we tested the Siena mattress, we determined it falls right between a medium and medium-firm on our firmness scale. If you’re one for numbers, that’s around a 5-7 out of 10, with 10 being the most firm mattress you can get.

We typically think medium to medium-firm is kind of the magic range as it accommodates the most people. Back, stomach, and side sleepers can all sleep comfortably. Though your weight does factor into things. We won’t get ahead of ourselves; we’ll get into how your weight influences your mattress selection a little further down. 

How does the Siena mattress feel?

To us, the Siena mattress has THE memory foam feel. If you’re a memory foam lover, you know the one. Though it’s a little more responsive than the traditional memory foam bed. So not super dense like TempurPedic, but swaying that way for sure. Especially for the price point, we think it’s a good option for those looking for that memory foam feel without the price tag. 

The Siena bed is a good memory foam option. You still get some of the sink-in feelings that you expect from brands like TempurPedic, but it’s more responsive, meaning you won’t be stuck there. We acknowledge that some people don’t like the memory foam feel, but we actually don’t think it’s overwhelming with the Siena. So most people will probably like the feel, even if they are not wild about memory foam.

Siena Mattress Construction 

The Siena bed is an all-foam mattress with three different layers of foam totaling 10” in height. 

  • Memory top foam: The top foam layer is where you get that really distinct memory foam feel that adapts to the shape of your body. With the transition layer under it, the Siena mattress is able to perform better than expected in terms of responsiveness. 
  • 2” Transition foam: Next, there is a responsive poly foam layer that is a transition between that dense support foam and the top memory foam layer. Additionally, it has a special ripple texture that lets the mattress breathe.
  • 5” Support foam: Acting as the base for the Siena mattress is 5” of very dense support foam. This is where the mattress gets its firmness level from.
  • Cover: Wrapping it all up is a soft cover that we think is pretty breathable. It’s also pretty stretchy. It’s not removable, but most people don’t really care about that if we’re being honest. 

Siena Review Sleeper Analysis 

How you sleep has a big impact on which mattress you should choose. Each sleeping position needs different things from their mattress. Below you’ll be able to see exactly how the Siena mattress performs in your sleeping position. 

Side sleeper

  • Side Sleeper
    Not So Good For

    Side sleepers need pressure relief from their mattress. That way, they don’t develop pressure points on their shoulders, hips, and knees.

    The average side sleeper can sleep comfortably on the Siena mattress. It falls about a medium to a medium-firm on our scale, so it’s pretty accommodating. However, we do caution that petite side sleepers might find it a little too firm.

  • Back and Stomach Sleepers
    Good For

    Back and stomach sleepers need their mattress to be supportive enough that their spines stay aligned all night. If it’s too soft, then you’ll wake up with back pain. 

    The Siena mattress caters to back and stomach sleepers just a little more because of the firmness level and that dense support foam layer. It is potentially best suited for back and stomach sleepers.

  • Combo Sleeper
    Good For

    With memory foam mattresses, sometimes combo sleepers suffer from that stuck-in-the-mud feeling that makes it harder to switch positions at night. We didn’t find this to be the case with the Siena mattress. It was surprisingly responsive for a memory foam mattress, so combo sleepers should be able to move around better on this bed compared to others on the market.

Siena Body Type Analysis 

How much you weigh will influence which bed you choose. Why? Because it determines how much weight you put on the mattress, which alters the fitness level. 

For the sake of this review, petite body types are people who weigh less than 150 lbs. Average body types are between 150 to 250 lbs. Finally, heavy body types are considered to be over 250 lbs.

Petite body types

Since petite people will put less pressure on the mattress; they will probably find that this bed feels more like a medium-firm. That’s great news for primarily back and stomach sleepers who need a firmer profile. It might be a smidge too firm for the average petite side sleeper unless they specifically want that firmer feel. 

Average body types

The Siena mattress is likely best suited for average body types. It’s a relatively accommodating mattress, so any sleeper type will be comfortable if you fall into this category. 

Heavy body types 

Heavy body types will perceive the mattress to feel more like a medium. Meaning that heavier body types can get by on the Siena mattress; it might just not be the best option. 

Given it’s a memory foam bed with no coil option, it just doesn’t have the support and durability that will pay off in the long run. We typically like to suggest hybrid mattresses for heavier folks to make sure their bed supports them. 

How Much Is A Siena Mattress? 

The price is where the Siena mattress really shines. It’s a truly affordable mattress. It’s priced well below the industry average of brands like Leesa, GhostBed, or Nectar. 

Given it’s a new bed, we don’t have a great idea of what the discounts will be (outside of what we offer), but regardless, we think it’s priced fairly. Given the quality and construction of this mattress, we think that the Siena mattress is worth the money.

Siena Mattress Performance 

Pressure relief 

We like the Siena bed for its pressure relief. Like all memory foam mattresses, it has pretty good levels of pressure relief. The top layer of memory foam cradles your body when you lay down on it, which is a must for side sleepers. 

Remember that Siena is not the softest mattress out there, so it doesn’t have the most pressure relief possible. Still, we think it strikes a really good balance between pressure relief and support. You get the best of both worlds, just not the most from either side.

Temperature regulation 

When testing, we found that the Siena bed sleeps pretty much temperature neutral. Historically, memory foam mattresses are known to trap heat as you sink into them. But as memory foam has evolved, you don’t see that much anymore. 

[Read more: What is Temperature Regulation?]

Not to mention that the Siena has an egg-crate-like style on the transition layer, which is designed to keep the bed from getting too warm. So it’s not a cooling mattress by any means, though the bed will not trap heat or make you hot while you sleep. It’s the definition of temperature neutral. 

Durability 

In terms of durability, we would rank the Siena mattress alongside most other all-foam mattresses. In the long term, memory foam does tend to sag. They just can’t hold up to the durability standards that innerspring or coil mattresses set. 

Edge support 

Edge support is how well the perimeter of the mattress holds up to pressure. As in, if you’re sitting on the edge, does it feel like you’re going to fall off? This is important if you sleep with someone else and need access to the entire sleeping surface. 

[Read more: What Is Edge Support]

The Siena mattress performs pretty average in edge support. You won’t feel like you’re going to roll off if you sleep on the edge of the mattress, but it’s also not the strongest we’ve seen. That’s not entirely surprising, given it’s an all-foam mattress. It’s just not going to give you the type of edge support a firmer hybrid mattress would. So it’s okay, but not great. 

Motion isolation 

All-foam mattresses typically perform the best in terms of motion isolation. The Siena mattress is no expectation. 

When we test for motion isolation, we set a glass of water on the bed and have our team roll toward and away from the glass. Depending on how much it moves or doesn’t move indicates how strong a bed’s motion isolation is. With the Siena, we found it to have really good cross-mattress motion. If you have a partner who tosses and turns or gets out of bed often, you likely won’t even notice. 

Is the Siena mattress good for couples?

Edge support and motion isolation are the two essential factors in determining if a mattress is good for couples or not. The Siena mattress performs well in motion isolation and not so well in edge support. But overall we would say that it is a good option for couples. Especially if you’re on a budget. 

Siena Company Policies 

Siena has some pretty standard company policies. To start, you have free bed-in-a-box shipping. It comes in a box, making for a quick and easy unboxing process because the mattress is relatively light. Remember, it takes a few days to fully inflate and get to the true firmness level. So don’t be discouraged if you unroll it and think… “Is this it?” You just need to give it time.  

The trial period for this mattress is 180 nights. Which is plenty of time to decide if the mattress is right for you or not. While it is not the longest trial we’ve seen, we don’t fault Siena for that. If you decide if the mattress is not right for you, you can get a full refund and free returns, as long as it is within the trial period. 

Siena comes with a standard 10-year warranty.

Siena Mattress Review Verdict 

We like the Siena mattress for its affordability and responsive memory foam feel. It’s not what we would consider a luxury pick, but it’s a solid mattress for the money. We don’t think it’s the best option for heavier folks who would benefit from the durability of a hybrid bed. Though we think it is a top choice for college students on a budget or people trying to furnish a guest room. 

Get the Siena mattress if:

  • You’re on a budget, but you really want the body-conforming feel of memory foam. 
  • You’re looking for a memory foam mattress. Some people love memory foam, and some people hate it, but there is no mistaking it; Siena is a memory foam bed. 
  • You’re a back or stomach sleeper who needs a slightly firmer mattress. 

Don’t get the Siena mattress if:

  • You’re a petite side sleeper. It might just be a little too firm for you. 
  • You’ve got a heavier body type. You would benefit from the support and durability of a mattress that has pocketed coils.
  • You’re looking for a mattress that is either really soft or really firm.
