Grand Hotel Continental is a lovely old historical hotel in a great location. We travelled with our two children and booked 2 superior rooms which were amazing. The room had one main exterior door and then it went into two totally seperate huge rooms. We were lucky to get a room on the top floor which had a large balcony...

Grand old hotel in a very central location. If you are driving in make sure to ask for directions from the hotel and look at the map. We followed blindly the GPS and must have driven 2 miles of pedestrian-only streets - not very polite with the locals and great way to get acquainted with the local traffic police. But...

Walking distance from almost anywhere you want to visit Siena, The Duomo, the Piaza etc. Walk down to the best shops in Siena. Take advantage of the heavy discounts on almost all products from 10th January onwards. 30 to 60%. Good restaurants close by.

Although centrally located in Siena and within walking distance to sights, the hotel is old and tired and in need of refurbishing and simple daily checks to make sure the electrical fixtures are working. We were given a room with carpet stains and electrical issues. The first night we had to order up two fans to cool the room down...

5 star hotel. Superb service. Lovely people. Excellent location. But... it is a very old palazzo. So, if you are offered a room in the newer section (3rd floor) take it. The old rooms have older furniture (no problem) but the acoustic did not work for me. The plumbing was amazingly noisy, at least in my room. If you have...
