two out of three of our rooms were FABULOUS. Frescoes on the walls. Room 138 was the best. A balcony that you want to spend all day looking at the amazing view. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely. Centrally located. Go there!

I'm sorry to write a poor review but I must. Share my terrible experience at this Hotel. It's not Leading Hotel quality, I never even saw the beautiful room with the chandeliers and green couches and I had to ask where it was since I felt very deceived. The noise from the pedestrian street below was horrendous! It sounded like...

Dear Guest, we are most sorry that your stay at the Grand Hotel Continental was not a most pleasant one. We are located in the center of Siena, in the heart of the medieval and pedestrian area which avoids any traffic or simular disturbances and isolation of our soundproof windows are generally sufficient. It may occur, and we apologize for...

The Good: • Gorgeous luxury hotel right in the center of town. • Large, comfortable room (though not really a "Suite" per se). • Beautifully decorated. • Helpful, friendly staff. The Bad: • The "Suite" is actually just one fairly large room. • Rooms can get hot and stuffy at night in the winter (and it's too noisy outside to...

We sent one night in a Junior Suite and had dinner at the hotel restaurant. Enjoyed both. The room was as shown on their web site and the ballroom/ reception room was as beautiful as shown.

Grand Hotel Continental is a lovely old historical hotel in a great location. We travelled with our two children and booked 2 superior rooms which were amazing. The room had one main exterior door and then it went into two totally seperate huge rooms. We were lucky to get a room on the top floor which had a large balcony...

Grand old hotel in a very central location. If you are driving in make sure to ask for directions from the hotel and look at the map. We followed blindly the GPS and must have driven 2 miles of pedestrian-only streets - not very polite with the locals and great way to get acquainted with the local traffic police. But...

Walking distance from almost anywhere you want to visit Siena, The Duomo, the Piaza etc. Walk down to the best shops in Siena. Take advantage of the heavy discounts on almost all products from 10th January onwards. 30 to 60%. Good restaurants close by.
