Recent guest reviews

Upon arriving at the hotel. The desk clerk welcomed us ever so kindly. He also had given us a wonderful restaurant recommendation. The room as fine ( although did not have the feeling of being very clean as there was lots of dust and the floors were just averagely clean. The terrace was grand and wonderful although there was lots of bird waste on the terrace floor. The bathroom is small but efficient. The breakfast was fine nothing special although nothing wrong - the presentation could have been a little better. The hotel lobby is not too pretty as the style of the furniture seemed dated. Overall, we had a fine stay. I would say the best part of the hotel was the kind desk clerk.

Siena is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and sadly the Minerva does not do it justice. The location is just barely in the old town, and while the pizzeria across the street was excellent (try the sausage and truffle pizza), the hotel's breakfast was plain and unremarkable. With so many cute hotels closer to the heart of this adorable town, I can't see staying here again.

Getting to the hotel was beyond challenging, as the hotel's website directions do not even begin to provide guidance. Once at the hotel, a map was provided that definitely should have been posted on the website to assist in driving. The hotel's minimalistic, sterile decor and non-descript rooms, although in a good location and providing a good value, are below average and do not blend with the historic, surrounding area and town. Although it worked for a short overnight stay, this hotel would not be on a list for any type of extended visit to Siena.
