We enjoyed our room with terrace and found the price to be reasonable. The staff was not overly friendly nor ver helpful. The location meant we had to walk a great deal and public transportation is very limited. Since my husband has difficulty walking this hotel was not suitable for us. We will not stay here in the future.

We have stayed here before and particularly like its location a 10/15 minute walk into the historical city and yet with easy access to the surrounding countryside, it also has the benefit of onsite parking. The public areas of the hotel are well cared for and pleasant, however we found our room although clean rather basic and 'run down' compared... More

Very clean and affordable hotel just close to old city. Rooms are big and clean. All the landmarks are at walkable distance and Siena is a world heritage center. This hotel is just a kilometer away from the railway station which is well connected to Florence, Pisa, Venice and Rome.

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
