Perfect place for those traveling with a car. The hotel has good secure parking area. The rooms are spacious, we were a group of three friends and stayed in one room. There was enough space for all of us. The best thing of this hotel was the terrace. We enjoyed waking up to the amazing view of the whole city,... More

The hotel Minerva was situated just inside the city wall and was a 10 minute walk to the traditional walled town centre. Siena itself was fantastic - great wine, food and friendly people. The hotel was a great base to explore everything that southern Tuscany had to offer - if you're hiring a car then I'd strongly advise you take... More

This hotel is at the gateway of the "old city of Siena" It's approx 15 minutes walk from the station and a 10 minute walk into the medieval side of the city. Easy to find, billboards on the bus stops to help. The room was spacious with a view over the city. Breakfast was yum with a lot to choose... More

The hotel is in a good location, near the old town and the rooms have an excellent view. Breakfast was very good too. The only thing that bothered me was that, in the first day, the staff did not put more pies and croissants in the buffet. After they were over, they were over! (and I really wanted another slice...

For the purpose of my visit, to see the Palio, the location and views overlooking the winning Cantrada (Lupa, pure luck), were fabulous. However..... I would have to question the 4* rating, I'd say 3* at best, but that's my opinion. Sadly there were a few negatives. At check-in the keys to my room had gone AWOL, not such a... More

Dear guest, actually you stayed in a 3 stars hotel. My colleagues did their best to solve the problem of the key and since the problem was taking more time than forecasted, they proposed you another room. In any case I hope that these inconviniences did not ruin you holiday in Siena :) Best regards from all Minerva's staff More

Simple, clean hotel with adequate rooms, a great breakfast (with nice staff working breakfast) and the snottiest front desk staff we experienced in our travels in Italy. Overlook the edginess of the desk staff and the place is pretty good. Convenient location and reasonable price.

Good location & clean room. The breakfast was nice. No restaurant in hotel. Internet connection slow. Short stroll up the hill to the old city. Plenty of good restaurants nearby. The view from our room onto the old city fantastic . Despite the hot weather the room in the hotel was cool. Will stay again next time in Siena.
