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

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. One of the rooms had a terrace which had beautiful view over the stunning city of Siena by day and night... More

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. As far as for the breakfast, the choice decrease if you come down,... More

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

Dear Mallo, many thanks for your commentary. I'm glad that in complex you enjoyed your stay at Minerva's. We are far about 800 metres from the train station and we are up hill, but you can catch a taxi or a local bus to reach the hotel. For the matresses they are all orthopedic and sometimes can be difficult to... 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. 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

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. I hope that if you will come back to visit Siena, you will choose again Hotel Minerva. Best reagards from Hotel Minerva's staff 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.
