Good value for money. It is close to downtown. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Our room was very nice (superior) with a large terrace. Every day, replaced the towel. The front desk is always very helpful. I asked for a private car park, first day there was no place in the hotel but I've got a nearby paid parking place... More

Dear guest, many thanks for your commentary. I'm happy you enjoyed our hotel. I know that insonorization is one of our weak point, but unfortunately it is not possible to improve the situation because we do not have the public permission to solve definitively the problem. As far as the breakfast room, it is not so big, so when the... More

We are just back from Siena and a lot of our enjoyment of this stunning city and region was enhanced by the fact that we had a comfortable, friendly, clean place to retreat to at the end of an exhausting day being tourists! We changed after a night to a room with a view which had a verandah and was... More

The hotel is simple and comfortable, around a 10-15 minute walk from the Campo. I was lucky enough to get room 204, which had a truly spectacular view over the city. It was a twin room, but if you're looking for a double, make sure you ask for one with a view - it didn't cost me anything more, I... More

Dear Ais, many thanks for your very nice commentary. we are very pleased that you enjoyed so much your stay at Minerva's. All the standard rooms have the spectacular view you described, only the econimic rooms do not have view, that's why their rate is cheaper. For those who reserved an economic room, when it is possible we always offer... More

After reading some of the reviews my husband and I were a little worried, but having travelled to Italy a lot and visited various cities, we knew that Italian hotels are sometimes quirky! Arriving at the hotel mid afternoon we were greeted by Roberto, who was absolutely lovely. He gave us room 6. The room was fantastic, it was large... More

This hotel is only about a 10-15 minute walk from Siena's Piazza del Campo. The breakfast is quite good. The rooms are on the small side but still comfortable. The views of Siena, especially at night, are breathtaking.

We got a room with a spectacular view of the city center. The hotel is very well located, about 10-15 minutes walk from Piazza del Campo. It has a parking place, the staff is very kind and helpful and the breakfast is very good, both for sweet and salty taste. Fresh seasonal fruit available and home-made cakes. The room itself... More

I'd been slightly concerned based on some of the reviews on here and booked a 'superior room' to ensure a good view and a decent size room. The room was more than big enough (it felt huge compared to a small room we'd stayed in the previous night in Rome) and the view was fantastic, especially at night. We'd arrived... More

The hotel is located from walking distance to the historic center outside of the tourist zone. It's 10 minutes walk to the center. The hotel can be easily reached by car without having to pass through the historic center, and it has a private parking garage available. The room wasn't very big, but it was clean and nice, and it... More

SItuated 10 mins walk from Il Campo in Siena the location is good. With parking for 12 euro in the house its good for people coming with car. The rooms however are smallish, boring and nothing special. The breakfast is OK. But the hotel lobby is a catastrophy, its just boring, sterile. I dont know what they wanted, I think... More

Dear Almgren, I'm sorry that hotel was not what you expected. It's the property who decides the external aspect of the rooms and the lobby, so I can understand that maybe someone couldf disagree with their taste, but the aim is not to appear a posh hotel. We only try to do at best our work and make our best... More

We enjoyed our stay in Siena. Our room was more than adequate and we had a beautiful terrace in which to enjoy the views of Siena. Everything we wanted to see was within walking distance and there were great restaurants nearby. Breakfast was very good and if you are looking for American coffee, this is the place to be.
