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

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

This is a nice property in a great location. Rooms are small but clean. Great view from room and terrace. There is a gym nearby. Short walk up to il Campo and center. We were concerned with the attitude of the desk staff. Everything question and request seemed to be a great burden for them, which made us feel a... More

Yes view of Siena was good but thats about it. Within walking distance of centre. Staff not rude but not friendly either. We only stayed 1 night which was our last night in Tuscany. Not overly impressed with this hotel.

Dear Ciuaran, thank you for your commentary and for having focused the main qualitis of the hotel. I'm sorry if the employee did not seem you particularly happy, but for us is high season and sometimes we have a hard work to do and could give the impression to be tired. We hope you will come to visit us again... More

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
