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.

Staff is kind, knowledgeable and sweet. Rooms are luxurious, bedding is soft , temperature is perfect. Bathrooms are large, well appointed with large rain showers , tub is enormous … take a bath before dinner. Breakfast is a vast assortment of foods that will easily satisfy any requirements or food restrictions you may have. Dining room offers wonderful lunch selections, well prepared. We stay here when in Siena, no need to look further afield. Hotel is in the historic Center, stems ftom the Campo, Duomo, excellent shopping and dining are mere steps away I can’t say enough about this hotel .

Hotel was really lovely and superbly located. Everything was within minutes of walking. Staff were very friendly and booked us lovely restaurants. They also recommended a hot spring Terme San Giovanni which was just a 25 min drive outside of Siena. We loved it and soaked there for many hours. Breakfast was a full spread buffet but hotel staff had to pick the food for you and serve it to you. Very good Covid measure!! The room was large and very comfortable for our family of 4. My kids loved the large bathtub in the room too. Highly recommend and will return for sure.

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.

Dear Guest, thank you sharing your comments and we are most pleased to know you have enjoyed your stay. The position and uniqueness of the XVII historical palace di not allow to creat a pool or appropriate fitness on property; nevertheless there are nearby possibilities we may always suggest to our guests with these requirements. Hoping to welcome you again in the future in Siena. With regards, Nathalie Beaugonin Hotel Manager
