Stayed there over new year 2014/2015. Internet was not working the entire time. Room carpet was grubby, no actually dirty. Bathroom needs updating. Aircon was either too cold or too hot. Location was good as in very central.

Magnificent views from the executive rooms on the top floor with a small balcony cut into the tiles of the palace of the roof. This however is the only thing that the Continental has in connection with Helena Bonham Carter's pensione in EM Forster's novella. The Continental is a top rate establishment, recently reconstructed from a 17th century palace in... More

I stayed there recently for two days. It is a beautiful property. The Front desk is very courteous and helpful. The location is excellent. The only regret is that many of there old charm rooms need to be made modern in every which way and not only with modern amenities. I was initially given an old charm room overlooking the... More

Situated right in the heart of this wonderful city the Grand Hotel Continental is ideally situated to explore all of the main attractions on foot. We stayed three nights. Our room had a lovely view over the rooftops and we could see the Cathedral. The room was very quiet, very comfortable, very clean and had all the amenities needed. The... More

As you walk into the reception area you cannot help but be impressed with the building, it has a fantastic mix of classical and contemporary styling. The receptionist was friendly and attentive (as you would expect in most hotels). Unfortunately from then on in this hotel fell quite short of the standard you would expect from a 5 star hotel...

Loved the location on the Main Street and the closeness to everything. The staff was fantastic and very helpful. The breakfast was good and the Internet connection was fair. The room was very nice and also on the street. The crowds are lively until well after midnight so expect to hear them. The street swipe rat 6:30 AM too.

We had a delightful 2 night stay in this hotel. Our room was a spacious junior suite which boasted a ceiling reminiscent of a mini Sistine Chapel and furniture with the patina of a bygone era! Our room and bathroom were spotless as was the hotel. Remember this is a very old property in the heart of Siena. Our room... More

The location can't be beat located on the main walking street in Siena. The hotel is a restored and converted palace from a few centuries ago. The breakfast buffet was good but could have been better. Our room was on the top floor with a small balcony and view of Siena. The front desk staff was very helpful in making... More

We stayed in Sienna for three nights a this hotel. Everyone's comments about the staff and the grandness of the hotel is spot on. We were able to go the wine cellar and have a dinner in a private room. All done with care and excellent service. The bad part about staying in a city can be the street noise.... More
