“Hard beds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

We stayed recently and found the beds extremely hard. May as well have been sleeping on a picknic table. We took the two blankets they provided and placed them under the sheet but that only provided a little releaf. We found the hotel to be clean and the bathrooms and overall room nice. If not for the bed I would have rated this hotel higher. It is also no located near any restaurants within walking distance so you will find it necessary to eat at their restaurant which wasn't bad.

It was over 100 degrees in Italy and the house we rented did not have A/C. So we moved to this hotel. It was a hidden gem. First, it is VERY clean. Second, the A/C worked great. Those were critical things for us. It is an "old school" hotel where everyone wears formal attire and great you by name. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. The restaurant was very good and the town is very cute. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Italy.

Room Tip: We went to the hotel and got a great rate. Almost half the amount of the online price.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2011

We spent 1 night here and were overall pleased with our stay. The staff aren't overly friendly but certainly helpful and polite. The room (including the bathroom) was reasonably spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. It's not quite a 4-star standard room -- I think the hotel gets its rating because of the facilities it provides (gym, restaurant, business facilities etc.), but comfortable enough. Our room even had a view into the historic centre of Arezzo. We liked the fact that parking was free.

For a hotel which promotes itself so heavily as a business hotel, it was a little disappointing having to pay for Wifi internet, but that's only a minor complaint. The location was excellent for us -- easy to find and very close to the historic centre. The restaurant was ok -- reasonably priced, impeccable service and average food (don't expect trattoria style comfort food -- its nothing special). Breakfast was outstanding -- perfect selection of pastries, meats, cheese, cereals, yoghurt, fruit etc. Overall, pretty good value for money and we'd definitely stay there again.

Not being able to speak the language was not a problem because there was alway someone to help. Not all hotels are "air conditioned" in Italy but Minerva Hotel was working in fine fashion during some of the hotest days on record. The restraurant was the crown jewel and servise was better than most restraurant. Great food,
