Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Siena. Three minute walk to the Piazza del Campo. Room was lovely, clean, spacious and decorated beautifully. Beds were old and uncomfortable. Room was very hot and they don't turn on the AC in the winter. While overall a good experience, it was a huge let down that after paying $541 for the...

Our stay in Siena was amazing! We loved the location right inside the walls of Siena. The staff was very helpful, everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

My wife and I just got back from celebrating our 10th with a trip to Italy. We had the pleasure of spending 5 nights at the Grand Hotel Contenintal in Siena. It was an unexpected treat, as the service, and atmosphere were both 5 stars. The location is right in the middle of everything, the duomo is a short 10...

This wonderful old hotel is located in the heart of Siena. We stayed in the junior suite with the balcony over the street. The room was palatial. Because of its location, the narrow pedestrian-only street, and the hard surfaces, it is not you-could-be-anywhere quiet. You can hear people passing below your balcony from 9a - midnight. That is, however, part...

We stayed at this hotel during a long trip to Europe during August. We had three nights here and loved every minute of it. It is not an easy hotel to get to by car but the front desk staff are so organised at dealing with your luggage and they park the car for you (goodness knows where)! They also...

Sad to say but this was the worst hotel we stayed in on our Tuscan tour ... and stupidly overpriced. The plus points are it is in the heart of Siena. Great location. The downsides are it could really do with a lick of paint and some general TLC. I was expecting a grand Italian city base as part of...

We really loved this hotel. Our room was superb and the staff were very friendly and warm. The location of this hotel is very good and though it can be a bit noisy as the hotel is in town it did not really disturb our sleep. Excellant.
