The location is wonderful, but the hotel is not very well maintained. Rooms are small and and old. Outside the room the hotel is beautiful with nice paintings and sculptures. Breakfast is quite poor in terms of options. Valet parking is 45 euros. The staff is very welcoming and helpful.

My family and I spent one night here. The service is impeccable and and the hotel is located in the heart of Sienna, only a short walk to the must see sights and plaza.

We spent two nights in this 5 star hotel in Siena and we were a little dissappointed with it due to its 5star rating and expensive cost. Pros's: Great location in the heart of the old town. Very friendly staff who are very helpful. Cons: Breakfast was very basic, pastries, juices and cereals were poor for a supposedly luxury 5star... More

We stayed in room 439 for 2 nights. Our room was on the top floor and had a lot of light and a lovely terrace with great views of the tower, duomo and basilica (you had to stand to see the view). It was a little on the small side (long and narrow - see photos) but we didn't mind... More

I'm glad I chose this hotel for our first visit to this magnificent Italian city. The staff was incredibly helpful, the location within the walled city can't be better; breakfast was the best we've ever had as an included feature in any hotel we've known in Europe.This is, for sure, the place to stay in Siena.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The only 5-star luxury hotel within the old walls of the city of Siena is the Grand Hotel Continental, an architectural jewel of exclusive luxury in the medieval heart of this ancient city. History and art are an integral part of this magnificent 17th century building, also known as Palazzo Gori Pannilini, a wedding gift from Pope Alexander VII, a member of the powerful Chigi family, to his niece Olimpia. The frescoes are grandiose, the furniture priceless, the marble refined and the atmosphere is so romantic that throughout the centuries it has won over the hearts of a truly elite clientele. ... more   less
