Great hotel! We got a room with a terrace which I would highly recommend to anyone staying at this hotel. It was very spacious and had a great view over Siena. Very close to the main square (10min walk), but far enough that you can get a good night sleep. They showed us the wine tours that were available and... More

Very disappointing hotel. We had booked a 'superior room' which looked nothing like the photos online. The bathroom was basic with some needed TLC. The breakfast was cheap with nasty coffee and overdone croissants. The only good thing about the hotel was the rooftop view of Siena and the location was good for exploring the city on foot.

I would say everything was average. First impressions though were negative. Check in time was at 2pm and we arrived around 2:30, and had to wait an additional 30 minutes for our room to be ready. I had asked for 2 Twin Beds, but received one double, and the wifi didn't work for the first day. After the first day,... More

Dear Bonnie, many thanks for your commentary. Acrually the cehck-in time is at 15.00. It is written everywhere, in the website and in the on-line agencies. Of course, if you arrive before that time asnd the room is ready, we give you the key, otherwise you have to wait. When it is possible we do our best to solve the... More

whilst travelling around Italy by train, decided to stay here as it was 1 k away from the train station. We were a group of 8 in 4 double rooms. All rooms were spotless and had plenty of room.

Dear friends, many thanks for your commentary. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Siena and at Minerva's. It's true: the terrace has a great value, especially when you stay with your friends in the evening having a drink and enjoying the beautiful view of the town.

The hotel is located quite close (10 minutes walk) from the Campo. Because of that, the price was quite reasonable at about 90 euro per night. The room was basic but clean. Airconditioning worked well. Nothing special but the location is good.

The hotel is within walking distance of the train station. On the way you will have to pull bags for a couple of kilometers uphill, but when you return bag will suit all by itself. The hotel receptionist poorly understood by the English language, but things were done. The service was pretty good in all encounters. The room had great... More

The Location of the Hotel is really good - only about a 10 min walk to the Campo. And all the rooms are very quiet - if you have a Hotel in the middle of town it is very loud. Some rooms have a great view - unfortunately I was looking to the other side - but as I said:... More

The hotel is in a very good location not too far from the city centre. Breakfast was just amazing. Shame that the bar is not open at all times though.

Dear alfonso, many thanks for your commentary. I'm happy to read you enjoyed your stay at Minerva's. the moderner rooms are those without any view, just to compensate.

This must be my third visit to this hotel and the standard has not deteriorated. This is a busy hotel quite close to the town centre and the railway station, and is obviously used by groups on walking and cycling tours as well as visitors to Siena.
