Better than average size room and extremely clean. Reasonable rate for WiFi. Best restaurant in town... Do not miss it.

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,

Hotel Minerva is another one of those European hotels located in a small town which has a limited choice of accommodation. I have absolutely no complaints with this hotel it was clean, comfortable and easy to find as it is located on the main road into the historical centre of Arezzo. It had all the usual amenities as well as a large car park which was great if (like us) you’re on a driving holiday, as well as a great breakfast. My only point and I must stress its not a complaint is that like so many other hotels we stayed in during our time in Tuscany is that it was looking a little on the dated side, carpets, pictures, curtains etc all very 80’s.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2006

Stayed here for 3 nights in late August 2006 with girlfriend and various relatives.

Had a double room which overlooked the car park which was lovely and quiet and probably had the best views! Rooms were spacious and clean with a big bed and good sized bathroom (shower only which suited us). Everything clean. Air con not brilliant. Continental breakfast included (cheese, ham, pastries, croissants and toast etc.)

This is what I would class as an well looked after European 3*, clean, spacious and with all the necessary facilities. Staff very helpful though not often cheerful.

Best bit - all the above for GBP £60 per room per night. You just can't beat that.

Worst bit - 10 minute walk to the city wall which means add on a further ten minutes uphill to the Duomo or round the side to the train station and centre of town, although there are some restaurants just inside the city wall. We did not try it but the hotel restaurant looked very good and quite upmarket.

If you can live with the walk (or have a person willing to drive), I would definitely recommend this hotel.

If not, and on a budget, the Hotel Continentale is much better placed for the train station (2 minutes) and is in the centre of the town, though probably noisier as a result as that Piazza gets a fair bit of traffic.
