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

in June 2003 we held our wedding reception at this hotel and stayed overnight. We returned to the hotel to celebrate Valentine's day with a 4 night stay. This occasion was very different as our 1 year old son accompanied us. Having experienced standard room sizes and needing a cot I booked a suite, our arrival was delayed until 9-00... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The hotel is situated very close to the main Piazza del Campo. Our room (no 323) was massive and well equipped. The service was excellent and the staff were all friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel if you want to treat yourself!

We stayed for 3 nights in a standard room in late September 2006. The room was small but well furnished & impeccably clean. It came with a tiny terrace from which we had a beautiful view toward the cathedral - it was fabulous at anytime of the day or night. The hotel is in a perfect spot in the old... More

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Siena. We too were told about the restaurant Cane y Gato by the concierge. It was one of the best and most memorable dinners during a week of great dining. The concierge service at the Grand was the best that we had ever experienced. In fact the entire hotel experience was...Grand.

We only booked one night here, but felt it was worth reporting that the staff are universally well-trained, pleasant and helpful and the hotel is immaculately clean. Our room, although small, was beautifully presented, and had a view over the rooftops to the Duomo. The reception staff were able to answer all our questions regarding directions and events.
