Reviewed 7 September 2017

The Grand Continental Siena was our home base for three couples on vacation for 8 nights. The hotel is beautiful, the food delicious and the staff was wonderful! Breakfast included in the rate was so good. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good. Every morning we looked forward to opening the window of our hotel room at the amazing view and watch parades celebrating the Palladio pass by our window. Gazing at frescoes on the ceiling from our bed was an incredible addition to the atmosphere of our vacation. You can walk everywhere from the hotel. The Piazza Campo is only a couple blocks away. We love Siena and love this hotel!

Room Tip: We upgraded to a superior room with frescoes and a great view. Our friends had a standard room which...

Was difficult to find with GPS but cars were not allowed on street where hotel was. Finally we found it and porter came down the street to take our bags and move our car to parking garage.

Hotel is small and quite beautiful. We were upgraded to a larger more elaborate room and it was quite amazing. Ceilings must have been 30 ft high with frescoes on ceiling.

Front desk staff was lovely and efficient. Concierge recommended great places to eat dinner. I had already booked dinners on trip advisor but must admit we listened to concierge. Location was perfect to walk anywhere in historic center of Siena. Just outside there were musicians playing in the evening. Perfect place to use as base to see all the Tuscan towns you are interested in. Loved this hotel. Truly hated to leave.

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded and ask for a room with cathedral ceilings with frescoes. Don't know if we go...

The Grand Continental is the only five star hotel within the historic walls of the old city of Siena and it is a fabulous, if old, gem of a hotel.

First of all the location is within 10 minutes (slow) walking of all the main attractions. The old city is actually quite small and you can walk end to end in less than 20 minutes. The hotel is along the main walking and shopping street so the location is unbeatable.

We had a Deluxe Double which had a little terrace with a great view south westwards of the city and out towards the Tuscan country side. I would highly recommend booking room with a view. The room itself was large and well equipped, the toilet was marble. The rooms are dated, the door knobs may come off and there maybe paint chips but this is to be expected with a hotel of this age. Its certainly not polished but it does have its charm. The breakfast room was grand and the selection was adequate.

The hotel does offer parking but at EUR45 it is very steep. There is a garage very close buy that charges around EUR25, ask the concierge and they would be happy to tell you where it is. Staff were helpful as well.

Overall, if you are looking for a place to stay within the walls of the old city, this can be the only option.

Room Tip: Book a room with a terrace

The Hotel is accessible by car despite being located in the historic center of Siena: Beautiful Palazzo renovated to perfection, with impeccable service on all levels. Very good breakfast buffet, great food and service in the restaurant. Exquisite wine selection. The contemporary rooms are rather small, but well equipped (some dispose of nice small terraces with two chairs, i.e. # 440). The historic rooms are stunning. The luxury comes at a high price, but it's worth it.
