Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Minerva Siena
Ok, but lacking in charm
This place was just ok. Initially, we were disappointed to find that it's not right in the middle of Sienna. The walk into the centre, though, is hardly worth mentioning. It's 5 - 10 minutes, depending on your clip, and picturesque. Rooms are clean and large, though lacking in charm. The price is reasonable. The view out the windows is nice.
Service at front desk is not exactly friendly, nor is it rude. Great parking if you have a car. Overall, it was ok, but wouldn't stay again.
You can do better for the price. I'd rather sacrifice modern convenience, i.e. elevator, for a bit more charm.
Good location, nice enough hotel
The hotel is about a 10 minutes walk to the main square of Siena. It is an up-hill walk, but not at all strenuous. We had a room with a balcony that overlooked the town - nice view. We sat in the sun and had a little picnic and drank some wine. The room was average size and the bath was adequate - good shower pressure. They have a free computer with internet access in the lobby. Parking was about 9 Euro extra, and the inside garage was right next door - very convenient. Not a luxurius place but definitely comfortable.
Not a first choice
This was the worst hotel experience we had during a 5 city Italian vacation. The air-conditioned room we had reserved was not available when we arrived, and the room we were given instead was pretty shoddy. The hotel staff was not at all accomodating or pleasant to deal with. They even tried charging us the air-conditioned rate when we checked out!The only positive thing I can say about this hotel is that it was very convenient from the train station.
Great hotel, but a bit hard to get to
This is a nice hotel with an excellent breakfast. But be aware that it is a difficult uphill walk from the train station. We arrived via bus, which is a much easier walk, and left via train, but if we had done the reverse it would have been very difficult. Also, it is a 10 minute + walk from the old part of the city.

Our pick up for the days tour arrived promptly just before 10am. After picking up Kathleen from Colorado, Phil from Australia and Carlos and Micheline from the Philipines we headed of to start our guided tour of the Chianti countryside...by Vespa!
After a quick practice and assesment of skill we headed off on our scooters into the hills of Tuscany. Kathleen was not doing the Vespa tour, but had arranged a guided ...

Again, every driver, gave a differing set of gesticulations and pointed directions, a bit of fore-head smacking and shoulder-shrugging, but finally after waiting over an hour, I got a guy who spoke a few words I could understand, and he said " itsa smalla oranga busa, ova therea...." pointing across the ...
... The Italians have solved this problem nicely. We didn't actually count or keep track, but we went up about six escalators in the train station until we reached street level. This was nice, as they were all in an air-conditioned area, and we were able to keep nice and cool. We reached the top and grabbed our suitcases, and then walked about 15 minutes to our hotel, nestled on the main street in the medieval part of the city, well within the ...
... to the south of the Duomo. The floor of the uncompleted nave now serves as a parking lot and museum, and, though unfinished, the remains are testament to Sienese power, ambition, and artistic achievement.Underneath the choir of the Duomo, a narthex containing important late 13th-century frescoes (probably about 1280) was found and excavated in 1999-2003. The frescoes depict scenes from the Old Testament and the life of Christ. This was ...
