“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Minerva Palace is a great place to stay. Unfortunately we only stayed one night as we were on the Wonders Of Europe tour with Cosmos but we found the place just what we needed. The bus had to park some way from the hotel but it was situated right in the heart of town. Wi-fi was available but you have to pay quite a high fee for that, so we abstained. Also, we found the breakfast to be minimal and the room quite small. Still, a nice place to lay your head for a night.

I loved my room, large and had a balcony. On the 2nd floor, it was quiet and big enough for ten people, seriously, huge! I think it is hit or miss in Europe for rooms being of size.
The check in went smoothly, as was the check out. The tub was great.... the bed, like most hotels in Italy, was a very hard bed. Simple solution, stack pillows the length of the bed, and sleep on them. Works like a charm.
Nocholas was kind enough to make me some tea and I shared some cookies with him I found at Giovannis (just a block away from the hotel). Best place to eat would be the Ristorante Da Lorenzo. Have the Pasta with Tartufo (white or black mushroom). It is unreal! So good! ù

Room Tip: try the Da Lorenzo for pizza marghareta and the pasta tartufo. Skip dessert, get something from Giov...

Stayed here with a group. The hotel was lovely, very central, in the centre of the town. Very accessible to shops and restaurants. The staff were all very nice. I had a tiny, tiny room with a single bed in it on the 5th floor. It was the only hotel I have ever stayed in with just 1 single bed.
Only one downside with this hotel, no free WIFI. Had to pay for it. And then it kept cutting out.

The Hotel is accessible to most attractions and shopping at beautiful stores. We felt we were really in Italy. The room was neat and attractive as were the common areas. The food service is exceptional and the food staff very accomodating. The manager Giovanni Fabbrico was very kind and helpful with all necessary questions and needs. (parking, eating and more)

We were in the heart of the town. The daily breakfast buffet was nice. There were 22 in our group of ladies for spa week, a few complained of noise. Most were pleased. We used the terrace on the 4th floor for a sunset get together which was really nice.
Once we learned to pull up the shades, the room was quite nice. The staff was helpful and friendly.

The Hotel is accessible to most attractions and shopping at beautiful stores. We felt we were really in Italy. The room was neat and attractive as were the common areas. The food service is exceptional and the food staff very accomodating. The manager Giovanni Fabbrico went out of his way to help us find an electrical repair man (he actually took my husband to the repair shop). The audio larynx charger failed, my husband needs this to charge the Servox he uses so he is able to speak. I will always stay at this hotel and advise my friends and family to stay at Hotel Minerval Palace when they are in Italy. The hotel staff is very friendly and the service is excellent.

We only spent one night here but I have to say the location to most attractions was great. Nice friendly staff and breakfast was terrific! The pool and terrace was really small. (pictures are deceiving)
