In the heart of Siena, 5 min walks to Palio. Many attractions around. Nice room. Prosecco in the breakfast.

Just returned after using Siena as a base for touring Tuscany. Our room was large and housekeeping was excellent. My review of the reception staff is mixed, some were more helpful than others and some did not speak english, but I would absolutely recommend this hotel. In the heart of the walled city. One further point, if you have a... More

My wife and I recently travelled around Europe for 3 weeks staying in luxury hotels. Some much more prestigious than this one. We arrived at the Grand Hotel Continental without a booking hoping to check in and were met with the rudest front desk staff we've ever experienced. When I asked how much the room was the front desk attendant... More

We were in Siena for our daughters wedding together with family and friends. The hotel Grand Continental was the base for our wedding party and also provided the reception after the ceremony. We had a magical day and the hotel gave us a day to remember. The reception in the ballroom was beyond our expectation, the service, food and the... More

Far too often the beautiful medieval town of Siena is overlooked as an option for an overnight stay. As the tourist crowds begin to thin out, the city lights up at night with a magical feeling and this hotel puts you right in the center. Located on a premier street with boutiques and high fashion, the Grand Hotel Continental Siena... More

My wife and I stayed here in June 2009. We chose the hotel as it is central and is 5 stars. The hotel itself was really nice with the rooms and facilities just fantastic. The location is hard to beat and allows you to explore beautiful Siena on foot. We felt however, that the service left a lot to be... More

You can't beat the location in the heart of Siena. But for 300 euros, we had a small room, not working wifi, and an air conditioner that sounded like a plane taking off at the airport. The buffet breakfast was suppose to also be included, but wasn't and it certainly wasn't worth 25 euros.

While we only stayed one night in Siena, we were definitely glad we stayed at the Grand Hotel Continental. It's in the heart of the city and only a short walking distance to any place in the town. The hotel itself is beyond beautiful. The ballroom is a must see for anyone staying there.

The hotel is over priced and the service is terrible. Of all the hotels I stayed at this was the worst value. The rooms are tiny and very noisy. We paid extra foe the room with the frescos and the hotel would not honor it. The food was not very good. The location is great the only good feature. I... More
