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.

Although we found the staff rather unfriendly on our previous visit we decided to stay again because of the Minerva's proximity to the station and the Historic Centre. However on this visit the staff were slightly more approachable. Although our twin room and bathroom were rather small, even closing the hinged shower door a tight squeeze, the view was wonderful....

The hotel has great views of the city without being a horrible walk away. I was concerned about the location as other reviews talked about the hill but it's really not a steep incline ever. And not far. However the rooms are sterile and small and feel like hospital rooms. Big bathroom. TERRIBLE service. Seemed bothered by our presence. And... More

Dear Lisa, thank you for the commentary. I'm sorry youfound the reception desk unfriendly. Actually as you can read on the other guests' commentary they are all satisfied. As far as for the train station is just 700 metres from the hotel, so it's not far but neither just next to the hotel. It's cleared also in our website. We... More
