I was pleased with my stay at Hotel Minerva. My room was very spacious... but cleanliness of washroom was a bit under par. The staff was curteous... the breakfast was very simple. There was a charge of 5 Euros for the WI-FI... I would have loved for that to be included which is more and more standard in hotels. When I asked the concierge to the cost for a taxi to the train station, he quoted me 5 Euros... it ended up costing 10 Euros (with no traffic). My main disappointment was that the concierge failed to advise me that there was a train strike that morning... and still sent me over to the station. I know that these things happen... but as a hotel (especially one so close to the train station), this should be information that is promptly communicated to travellers... especially those to ask to get to the station. Althought I had a few issues... most were minor and I enjoyed my stay... would recommend to other travellers.

The hotel is conveniently located just outside the old town walls, 5 mins walk from the main bus station, 7 mins from the central piazza del Campo. The train station is a 20 min walk away, or by bus from the centre or one that stops just past the hotel. The hotel is in a rather nice building with a spacious lobby. Pick up a town map from Reception. The twin room was small, with an even smaller cramped bathroom with a small shower cubicle squeezed into a corner. You will need your own toiletries as only a couple of small liquid sachets are provided. The juliet balcony looks on to lovely views of the back of the old town. The usual continental breakfast fare of cereal, bread, cheese, cold cuts, stewed fruit, cake is served in a large room, & includes warmed croissants & boiled egg. Tea/coffee is served on a tray in small china jugs with milk by the 2 smiling courteous waitresses, so you can have your daily caffé lungo (long coffee), so favored by non-continental travellers, as you like it, leisurely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back with views of the Old Town

I stayed in a single for three nights in November 2011 and very much enjoyed everything about the hotel with one small exception. The size of the room, the quality of the breakfast, the courtesy of the staff, the superb view of the city from my balcony--all first rate. Much appreciated also were the availability of BBC and CNN. The absence of a desk light would be my only mark against this fine hotel.--I would strongly recommend the Minerva to my friends.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view.

We stayed here for two nights in August. The rooms were clean and reasonably priced. The walls were quite thin and you could hear noise from the corridor and neighbouring rooms.

The Hotel is near the old city wall, just outside the old town. It is a 15-20min walk to the Piazza del Campo (Siena Square). If travelling via train, it is a bit of a hike so I would suggest catching a cab (roughly 8 euro’s) or catch the local bus to the centre of town and walk from there. The staff were lovely and happy to give recommendations and advice. There is a really nice steak restaurant (don’t remember the name) around the corner from the hotel which the staff recommended, which offers a 1kg T-Bones and amazing local wine.

Great hotel. Awesome views of the entire city. Great location. Helpful staff. They opened a bottle of wine for us and were very friendly. The balcony was a pleasant surprise and the entire hotle was great. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Not sure what our room number was but definitely ask for a balcony. We did not pay more when booking it; it was a very pleasant surprise.
