Grand Hotel Continental in Siena is housed in a magnificent 17th-century palazzo that radiates elegance and charm. With its architectural magnificence, historic splendour and flawless service, every stay is transformed into a truly unique experience. One of the most prestigious hotels in the city, it is the only 5-star boutique hotel situated in the historic centre. Palazzo Gori Pannilini, the noble residence that today houses the hotel, is a wonderful example of Italian elegance. The Palazzo was endowed by Pope Alexander VII as a wedding gift to his niece Olimpia on marrying the Sienese aristocrat. Designed as a celebration of love, it has for centuries hosted the historical figures who made Siena great. Set in an enviable location, the hotel is just a few steps from the magnificent Cathedral and Piazza del Campo, which every year hosts the Palio race for which the city is renowned. Its sophisticated, elegant rooms and suites, with frescoed ceilings, original Tuscan cotto tiled floors and finishings in porcelain, marble and travertine, are finely decorated with antique furniture, precious objects, valuable artworks and luxurious silks. The Sapordivino restaurant offers a gastronomic experience at the very height of Italian culinary expression, with a sophisticated menu where diners can discover the authentic flavours of the purest Sienese tradition of cuisine. At the Lounge Bar by Sapordivino, guests can enjoy an aperitif or an after-dinner cocktail while immersed in a refined and tranquil atmosphere. The hotel houses four of Siena's most impressive halls. Here, high ceilings, beautiful 17th-century frescoes and exquisite Murano glass chandeliers provide the perfect backdrop for private events, weddings, seminars and conferences for up to 100 guests. From the Concierge to the 24-hour room service and valet parking, all the services are carefully selected to make every stay an unforgettable experience.

We paid more than our room rate for a better room which was then very nice and the breakfast room was lovely but the rest of the hotel is quite tired Lobby not very inspiring and staff not particularly helpful. Good position in Siena but the hotel definitely did not feel 5star as advertised. Their excuse for no 'turn down' was because of Covid, whereas every other hotel we visited did turn down. We think it was a convenient excuse. All in all disappointing.

What’s not to like? Grand Hotel Continental is centrally located in the heart of the city and exudes quintessential and authentic Sienese vibes (without being intolerably dated). The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the quick and simple breakfast set-up got our day of winery tours off to the right start. Will definitely stay here again next time I’m in Siena.

If the hotel alone were stunning that would be fine, but the people make this hotel an amazing destination! (I'm late with my review, we stayed here in July 2019.) We had two connecting rooms which were large & lovely. My husband & daughter had the most exquisite wine tasting experience with Omar. Laura, the concierge, went above & beyond with making sure that everything itself was above and beyond. We fully intend to stay here again.

not a budget hotel but a great position to visit the city if you can afford. The rooms are not huge but, if at the back, have excellent views. Breakfast was a little sparse but OK and the whole hotel is simply beautiful and what you expect of this fabulous, if small, city. We pre booked car parking and if so you can drive right up to the square in front of the hotel and then they will take it and park it. You won't need it if you are on a short visit and only want to enjoy the city for a couple of days. the bar isn't cheap but how many times do you get to sit an enjoy a drink with friends in such elegant surroundings in the hear of an historic city?

Wonderful customer service upon arrival. We had a lovely room overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Location is great for walking/exploring Siena. We did the Wine Cellar tasting - it was just my husband and myself - and it was wonderful. The space it is held in - The Wine Cellar - was so lovely. Great food and wine pairings and would highly recommend for anyone visiting Siena.

Kind Guest, thank you very much for sharing the comments. We are delighted to know that you have enjoyed your stay in Siena and had a chance to visit the city at ease thanks to our most central location. The Wine Cellare indeed is most unique experience, both for the location in the base of the medieval tower and for the wide selections of wines offered. We hope you may once again choose the Grand Hotel Continental Siena - Starhotels Collezione for the next visit to Tuscany. Regards, Nathalie Beaugonin Hotel Manager
