Travelers' Choice
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.

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in September. Gorgeous 5-star hotel that is centrally located in Siena. The staff was extremely kind and attentive, and we could not have asked for better service. The hotel was extremely clean, and stunningly beautiful decor and artwork throughout. VERY highly recommended.

Not a five star hotel - despite the claim and $700 per night cost. Great location for accessing the old city sites etc. Pictures on website embellish the interior a bit. Staff was friendly and helpful.Bottom line is we won't be back at the price/value

The hotel is located at the heart of Siena and everything is really near. The hotel in itself is really beautiful, and you will find an authentic Italian atmosphere in there. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great, well presented and well served. The rooms are large and comfortable. Private parking space are also available. Great bathrooms and furnitures provided. The biggest negative point is that there are no fitness or pool, and that is a bit sad in a 5-star hotel. Apart from this you will definitively have a pleasant stay in the Continental Sienna, I recommand.

Beautiful hotel. Our room has a fantastic view 243 that we like so much! Gianpaolo at the reception was very helpful in anything we needed, nice and professional. The property is situated at the center, walking distance to Piazzo del Campo, close to shopping areas, restaurants and many more.

I have travelled to SIena 2-3 times over the years. It is one of my favorite places in the world. I have stayed at a few different hotels during my visits, but hands down, this hotel has got to be one of the best hotels I have ever been in. (I have high standards, and travelled A LOT). The minute you walk in, it's like walking into a art gallery. The front desk remembers your name, and greets you as you come and go. The room 'OMG". unbelievable. The old Italian decor. Get a tour of the wine cellar, and do a wine tasting. ( I ordered 12 bottles from them to ship to the USA, which they arranged for me from door to door). The location is superb. You are in walking distance to everything, and it's close enough in town where the taxi cabs can pull up close the hotel. There is an amazing deli/butcher shop not far from there. I recommend stopping by, and picking up his homemade sausages and baked goods. If you're really nice he may even pour you a glass of Chianti 😊😊😊
