What a gem. The hotel is located on a pedestrian street not far from the Piazza del Campo. For a city hotel, it couldn't be more spectacular. Our suite was enormous with 20 ft. high ceilings, beautiful art, persian rugs, wonderful beds and linens. The bathrooms were also large, marble filled and inviting. On our floor was a public sitting... More

The hotel is fabulous. The breakfast is delicious and the service is impeccable. The rooms are a bit on the small side but the location cannot be beat. Our travel agent forgot to order a car for us (Tuscany cannot be done without a car) and the hotel was incredible at piecing together tours (which is not easy in Tuscany)... More

We unexpectedly stayed at Grand Hotel Continental, and it was the best hotel room we've had. The room had a loft area with a tv, stereo, couch, chair, cot, mini-bar, and table with four chairs. The concierge was also very nice. We really had no issues with them at all.

We just returned from a 17 day trip to Italy that included a 2 night stay in Siena at this hotel. It is a beautiful property right in the center of Siena: the location can not be beat. We were upgraded to a suite( an american express perk) that included an upstair study with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.... More

I selected this hotel because there are not many choices in Siena and I was willing to splurge for a couple days. The positives are that it is ideally located and a beautiful property. The negatives are that the management is slipshod and does not seem to care much about the satisfaction of the guests who are paying through the... More

The Grand Hotel Continental is a great find. The location can't be beat -- right in the heart of Siena in walking distance of everything. My wife and I also drove right to the hotel -- the only challenge is the last 25 yards, when you need to drive very slowly through large groups of tourists. We stayed in Room... More

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Continental with our 1 year old baby. We had a really stunning room with frescoed ceilings and a lovely view of Il Duomo. We had an upstairs section in our room with a small dining table and lounge. The front desk service was excellent and Maurizio in the restaurant was wonderful. We had some... More

To preface this review I should relate that I'm a 56 yr. old married woman traveling by my self. Thus, I was a litte more dependant on the staff than I otherwise would have been. I stayed at this hotel for 4 days in March, 2007 and could not have been more pleased with the service or the facility. It... More

I recently had the pleasure of being a guest at your hotel. The stay was wonderful and we very much enjoyed it and intend to return. During our stay, while I was impressed with the hotel and the level of service, I was also very much impressed with the dedication, personality and service provided. The red carpet treatment started from... More
