Good hotel, near the historic part of the city, just 20 minutes by foot of main attractions. Large rooms. Parking near the hotel but expensive. The breakfast is simple but is good. The decoration is full of paints of the historical plaza os Siena.

I really enjoyed my one night stay here in December 2013. The view from my window was gorgeous, loved the breakfast which had many choices, used the parking and appreciated the easy walk through Siena's old town.

I stayed here for two nights while on a bike tour through Tuscany. The view overlooking the city was absolutely fantastic! Windows were floor to ceiling - like living in a Lorenzetti painting! City lights at night and sunrise from my balcony were highlights of my trip. I experienced no problem with noise during my stay. Hotel is quaint, old-fashioned... More

This hotel is a great value. It is situated about a 10 minute walk from Piazza del Campo with a pretty view overlooking the city. Parking was offered right in the hotel which is a real plus in these old cities. The hotel is fairly plain in décor and the rooms were very simple but good size. There is even... More

Not many hotels here, and this one is closer to the train station. Hotel has marble floors and is very noisy, The door gets closed and you hear it all over the hotel! Rooms are OK, but not very clean! The breakfast is OK, but when something runs out, it stays run out!

Dear Tatonka, many thanks for your commentary. We are aware that we have some problem of noise, but as I explained many times, we are in a historic building and dramatic refurbishment are not allowed. As far as the cleanyness of the rooms, we have the maiden in the morning and a bellboy in the afternoon, so it is sufficient... More

Large rooms with views over Siena from our balcony. However they were very sparse and cold, and the interior furnishings were awful (hospital like) with large unslightly shutters to keep out the afternoon sun. Wifi doesn't work in room, in fact, we found that wifi hardly worked anywhere in the hotel. The beds were really hard (but that's pretty much... More

We had a lovely few days in Siena staying at the Hotel Minerva, the view from our room over the town was stunning, service was really friendly and they sent back the shirts I left in the wardrobe promptly with no fuss at all.

We were travelling and hadn't planned on spending any time in Siena - we called ahead and asked if they could accommodate us - a room for 4 (with 2 small children) and a room for 2 -- we lucked out -- the room for 4 was large and very quiet - kids were able to sleep very well -... More

The first thing we noticed on arriving into our room was the noise level. The floors are tiled and the walls seem to be paper thin with the result every noise from the corridor and adjoining rooms could be heard. We were able to hear the conversation in the next room. When the toilet was flushed in the next room... More

Dear Sylvia, many thanks for your commentary. It is not possible the noises you heard in the very early morning were coming from the breakfast room, as you saw, the breakfast room is just next to the lobby and the rooms are on the opposite side (in the back part of the hotel) so the noise came for somewhere else....

I recommend taking the bus rather than a taxi when you arrive at the GARE SNCF. It's a close commute and not to mention at a very cheap price! The bus stop is about 3-5 minutes away from Minerva and there are many lines running through. Hotel Minerva, compared to others, is a larger hotel. It is at the beginning... More
