Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Located within the old city of Siena but at distance from the central piazza. We came with a tour and we were downgraded to that hotel from the category we originally asked for. We were not disappointed at all, quiet room, rather large. To be recommended for a mid range hotel in Sienna

Reviewed 30 October 2016

Reception staff very helpful and friendly. They also spoke excellent English which was a bonus. Room was small but clean with a fantastic view over Siena. Breakfast was typically Italian which was great.

Hotel Minerva was our last stop on an 8 day self-guided cycling tour of Tuscany. Great accommodations and service. Check-in was earlier than most. We appreciated the accessibility for walking tours of Siena. Thank you.

Hotel room was empty and cold. Absolutely nothing on the walls. We reserved a double room, and got two twin beds squished together with a twin cot beside it. Bathroom was tiny. Breakfast was very disappointing.

It is an older modest European business hotel. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. We are very happy with our choice. Great view of the city, and convenient to exploring the city and the countryside.

The rooms are very basic but it is clean and rooms are pretty spacious. We had a superior room with a very nice terrace with an amazing view over the city. The breakfast was ok but nothing special. Overall a good experience.

Short walk to city Center. Great view from room with balcony. Good breakfast. Very clean. Close to train station. Staff friendly and helpful, except for lack of help with train schedule. Happily, Rick Steves saved the day.
