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. The rooms are basics but clean - although on the website is showing very modern rooms, we had a very old one - not so modern. We chose a room... More

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. The room I had was quite spacious and comfortable, with a good sized... More

We stayed for just one night here and it was a very pleasant experience. Super modern building, very clean and well maintained. Room was large enough with a nice clean bathroom. Bed was comfortable and it was nice and quiet at night time. The air-conditioning was an absolute life-saver. If I'm being picky, the shower was not much more than... More

This is a very nice hotel situated in the centre of the town of Siena. I will personally recommend this hotel to my friends who visit there if the future. Siena is a beautiful town and it is unfortunate that we visited at the time of such bad weather.

Quite good location. We walked from the railway station (about 1.5km) also close to the city center. Nice and clean room. A lot of things for breakfast- cheese, ham, cereals, eggs, jam, croassaints, fresh fruits, coffee etc.

Good located with nice view!! Quiet neighborhood! About 10 minutes walking to the piazza Del Campo. Big bathroom but not enough space in the room. The breakfast is well served and satisfied. Polite staff.

Hotel Minerva is well placed in the glorious medieval Tuscan city of Siena i.e., about 10 minutes by cab from the airport or 5-10 on foot from the bus station (inside the old city). It's in the She Wolf contrade (district) of the city. If you are interested in the districts, you can read all about them on Wikipedia. They're... More

A very clean, comfortable hotel near the Porta Ovile chosen for its nearness to Siena station although all distances in Siena are relative as it is a town built on five hills and many of the steep narrow streets are quite challenging.
