Reviews of Hotel Minerva
What a fantastic weekend! The room was stunning with a breathtaking view. The bed was very comfortable with warm blankets. The breakfast selection was amazing with great and varied options to choose from. The staff was all extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, close to everything without being in the chaos of the city.
The elevator was a bit small, but nothing that stopped us from having a great time. Although the bathroom was a bit dated, it still worked just fine. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great weekend getaway!
Great value, lovely staff and good rooms. Regards to your manager. Just a 10-minute stroll to the centre. Spent a nice evening at Il Tiglio di Piazza, located steps away from the venue.
We enjoyed this hotel: location and food were all GOOD. Besides, free WiFi is a bonus. Perfect place for exploring Siena.
This hotel's location was perfectly situated near all the historical attractions, making it easy to explore the area. The room service was prompt and efficient, and the bed was comfortable for a good night's rest. The view from the balcony was stunning and made relaxing on it a highlight of the stay.
The breakfast options were limited and uninspiring.
we chose a hotel, we wanted something like this, in the ancient part of town, that the parking is not too far away, that the price is sane. $200 a night wasn't ready to pay. We were very tired of getting out of the way, it was hard to buckle up as we went along. In the end, we were fascinated by the city view photo from this hotel... What made us happy was that there was a parking lot for the hotel nearby, it was covered, hotel was very large, there was a view of the city. Rooms are large, bright, there is an air conditioner, there is air conditioning, can not but please in summer. There is a mini bar in the room. In general, full set. a comfortable bed with a mattress. I rested. Nourishing great breakfasts. There are frescoes, you can make your own punkk, lot of fruit. Classic milking in Italy. Perfect for milking in transit or for two days. On foot to the center of Siena 7 min.
Weak noise insulation, all the roar of the corridor was in the room, loving neighbors - the same. We should not have chosen a more expensive room because of the terrace overlooking the city, as the view of the city was not as expected and beautiful, as the hotel is on the extreme line of the city, at the ancient gates. the center can not be seen from the windows, houses as if standing back to the hotel, from which your windows overlook. In general, expectations did not coincide with reality. Because of the view of the city, hotel is certainly not worth choosing. Parking fee is 12 euros a day.
The breakfast options were quite good and the staff were helpful in showing us around the area with a map. We enjoyed the view from our room's private terrace and appreciated the easily accessible parking garage.
The pillows were a bit too hard, making it difficult to sleep. Our room was also a bit noisy, with sounds from outside and from neighboring rooms. Additionally, the room size was a bit small for our liking.
rooms were very clean and spacious, with quite modern furniture. beds are quite comfortable and there is space in the closets for luggage and clothes. There is also a table, a reasonably priced minibar. bathroom has good hot water, is appreciated in the winter. The breakfast is very complete and treatment was very nice by the manager. They keep your luggage without problems and when we passed the time of the checkout they called us to warn us later. they did not put us problems, location is right at the entrance of the city from the train station. it's all at a maximum of 15 minutes on foot,
They have wifi, you have to fill out a questionnaire, they also ask you to follow them on social networks and it's not easy to join. From android we can not connect to the wifi, only with my iPhone.. we were leaving they had a bad detail. I enter my partner alone to the hotel and waved before going to the lockers, to collect the luggage that we had been allowed to have there during the day, receptionist rudely told him that the hotel was only entered if you paid. he said he was coming to pick up the suitcase he simply replied: Okay, no apologies. It seems to me that before disrespecting him he should know if he is addressing a customer. In general, treatment has been very pleasant with the women of the hotel, with the men it has been more complicated.
Good value, clean, friendly. Good location
Bar rarely open
A very nice hotel is very close to the historic centre. There is free parking in front of the hotel, but there is not enough space. The hotel has a covered car park - 12 euros per day. It has helped us a lot. When booking an economy room, we asked about the possibility of getting a room with a view of the old town, but we were told that there are no economy rooms with a view (maybe we did not understand each other). When we registered, we were given a room with a small balcony and a view of the old city. And it was beautiful! Breakfast is not too varied, but quite decent. The 24-hour reception is always convenient.
The hotel is very close to the entrance to the zlt traffic restricted area. Access to the hotel from only one side and if you do not turn off immediately, there is an excellent chance to pay a fine for entering the zone.
Covered parking available, located next to the hotel. Piazza del Campo is within walking distance of the hotel via the shopping street of Siena. The train station of Siena is also easily accessible on foot, for ex. to go to San Gimignano by train (change trains at Poggibonsi to continue your journey by bus).
It is excellent if you have a car as easy to get to and close to all the city sites. The staff were helpful.
We booked a 'superior' room which in comparison to most of the hotels we have stayed in was pretty basic and not superior. It was expensive for what it was.
Hotel is in the right location - just away from the city hub. Breakfast is ok, staff courteous.
Needs some redecoration.
The view from our room was unbelievable, overlooking the medieval part of Siena. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel was great as it was a short walk from the train station and to the medieval part of Siena.
The lovely view from our window; the convenient distance from the railway station; the free internet; the delicious croissants at breakfast were the best we encountered during our entire trip!
The 15 minute time limit on internet - think 30 minutes would be more realistic given the fact that keyboards differ from place to place and it takes time to adjust to those differences.
Very close loacation to the city center. Available garage/parking place.
