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.

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.

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.

We were so delighted to enter our room and discover the patio with the amazing view of Siena. Our room was clean and bright. The breakfast buffet was delicious! One of the few buffets in Tuscany where we stayed, that included fresh fruit! Can't wait to go back!

We loved Siena. Hotel Minerva was well-located for a short walk to all the city sights. The room was one of those that was so tight that you could barely unpack. The bath had zero counter space for personal stuff (one of those pedestal sinks that looks nice, but offers no functionality for normal stuff). It also had no hooks...

Dear guest, our economy rooms are smaller than the elegant or Superior as you have experienced. The upgrade is paid differently, to distinguish it to the previously agreed rate. Best regards form Hotel Minerva's staff

Hotel Minerva was one of the best hotels we stayed at during our trip around Italy. Highly recommended. Siena is such a beautiful old city to explore which can be easily accessed by walking the streets and stopping by the local coffee bars for a quick bite to eat!
