After looking at the hotels website we had huge expectations to this hotel. It really was not that special. Some nights later we stayed at a 4 star hotel in Santa Margherita Ligure with was much much better. Rooms are ok, but a bit "old. Cracks in the wall. Stained carpet. Noisy. Also our bathroom was not clean. There was...

Dear Guest, your review has met our best attention. The highlighted matter has been throughly investigated but most suprisingly nothing was reported during any recent stay. The evidence posted certainly does not correspond to the regular standards of our accomodation and a simular shortcoming would have been promplty dealt with appropriate actions. We are sorry that we were not given...

What a wonderful hotel. The decor alone is a treat...grand and opulent. It is quiet, and you would not know we are on the main walking route to Siena's main attractions. Our room is lovely, cool and tastefully decorated with high ceilings and a very nice bathroom. The staff are most helpful and friendly. Breakfast has a good range. I...

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the old city, and is a very easy trip to Duomo. The rooms are large, and are very well appointed, with a humongous bathroom, and great beds. The hotel itself is very quiet and night, and unlike many others can be _completely_ dark due to the high quality black out shades....

We enjoyed a beautiful overnight stay in this gorgeous grand property with the most gracious staff and also delicious restaurant! Our room was elegant, spacious and very comfortable. The location a few steps from the Campo and the Duomo was perfect! We had a lovely dinner and breakfast in the dining room, both meals delicious with impeccable service.

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!

Dear Guest, we are most sorry that your stay at the Grand Hotel Continental was not a most pleasant one.

It may occur, and we apologize for...
