Grand Hotel Continental in Siena is housed in a magnificent 17th-century palazzo that radiates elegance and charm. With its architectural magnificence, historic splendour and flawless service, every stay is transformed into a truly unique experience. One of the most prestigious hotels in the city, it is the only 5-star boutique hotel situated in the historic centre. Palazzo Gori Pannilini, the noble residence that today houses the hotel, is a wonderful example of Italian elegance. The Palazzo was endowed by Pope Alexander VII as a wedding gift to his niece Olimpia on marrying the Sienese aristocrat. Designed as a celebration of love, it has for centuries hosted the historical figures who made Siena great. Set in an enviable location, the hotel is just a few steps from the magnificent Cathedral and Piazza del Campo, which every year hosts the Palio race for which the city is renowned. Its sophisticated, elegant rooms and suites, with frescoed ceilings, original Tuscan cotto tiled floors and finishings in porcelain, marble and travertine, are finely decorated with antique furniture, precious objects, valuable artworks and luxurious silks. The Sapordivino restaurant offers a gastronomic experience at the very height of Italian culinary expression, with a sophisticated menu where diners can discover the authentic flavours of the purest Sienese tradition of cuisine. At the Lounge Bar by Sapordivino, guests can enjoy an aperitif or an after-dinner cocktail while immersed in a refined and tranquil atmosphere. The hotel houses four of Siena's most impressive halls. Here, high ceilings, beautiful 17th-century frescoes and exquisite Murano glass chandeliers provide the perfect backdrop for private events, weddings, seminars and conferences for up to 100 guests. From the Concierge to the 24-hour room service and valet parking, all the services are carefully selected to make every stay an unforgettable experience.

Excellent property with a perfect location! Short walk to the Campo area and in the center of everything! Amazing breakfast and an even more amazing staff that truly go above and beyond! Massimo and Laura were amazing and so very helpful. Our luggage was lost from the airline upon arrival, and then was delivered to our hotel where we were staying in Florence. A hotel that we were not checking into until six days later. Laura and Massimo went above and beyond speaking with the Florence airport for us, and arranging transport for us to drive to Florence and retrieve the luggage. I would without a doubt always stay at this property when I visit Sienna!

Hotel's Favourite
The staff, location, and views can't be beat. Rooms are beautifully appointed. The Concierge and front desk staff make you feel like family - professional and personable. We were greeted by name each day. Their restaurant recommendations were fantastic. Upon arrival, we said we would grab lunch in the hotel. They politely said they could make a nearby reservation. We didn't get the hint, and had an underwhelming lunch in their dining room. Acceptable, not great. Having had other meals in Siena, we should have allowed them to book us a table nearby. Breakfast in the hotel is fantastic. Be sure to visit the cellar with Gianluca. The beds are comfortable. Laundry service did a beautiful job. The location, elegance, and friendly and professional staff make staying here a treat.

My wife and I loved the Grand Hotel Continental. Location on main pedestrian thoroughfare is perfect. Service is flawless. The Heritage Suite with Duomo views, a frescoe on the ceiling, beautiful furnishings and two bathrooms was one-of-a-kind. The hotel concierge provided excellent instructions on how to arrive by car. Basically, one needs to drive through a quasi-pedestrian area for two blocks -- but it is allowed, the street is wide and the pedestrians made way as we drove slowly through. I thought the breakfast was quite good by European hotel standards. Eggs and bacon plus a broad selection of fruits, cheeses, breads, fresh honey, yogurt and granola. The concierege also made restaurant reservations in advance at our request and provided a couple of good suggestions as well. We would absolutely stay here again.

We loved the Grand Hotel Continental in Siena. Perfect location on the main pedestrian street. Excellent service from the front desk, concierge and bar with professional, friendly staff. Our room was spacious, quiet and well-maintained with a large marble bathroom. The air conditioning was great, even in late August. The breakfast buffet was excellent with many choices. We loved starting and ending our evenings with a drink in the hotel bar. Would absolutely stay again.

Well appointed hotel in traditional style in old but remodeled building. Very clean and comfortable. No view from our room other than a brick wall. Large bathroom with great counter space. Only compliant was that there were two stairs from the bedroom to the bathroom which made late night relief a little dangerous in the dark. Wifi was good, but light switches were not obvious. Staff was English fluent and very responsive.

What a wonderful experience! The rooms were clean and beautiful and the staff was incredible. Elaina, at the front desk, was the best! Great breakfast and room service, (get the pizza).Our room had a gorgeous fresco dating back to the 1300's (Room 123). Great location for shopping, site seeing and food. Make sure you check out the ballroom!

We had a great 2 night stay here in a deluxe room with view. Our room had a nice view over the rooftops of Siena to the Duomo, and had an elaborately painted ceiling. Our room looked nicer than the pictures on their website would suggest. We were on the first floor, which also has the beautiful salon pictured on their web page, which was open for guests to use. The location was great, allowing us to easily walk wherever we wanted, on largely pedestrian streets. The service was consistently excellent and friendly.

This is not only a wonderfully restored hotel in a perfect location. Our room had a perfect view of the old town all the way up to the Duomo. Most notable is the staff! Extremely attentive to any wish, nice, friendly and helpful. Really rarely seen in a place like this. It gave the stay a very special note and made our stay very memorable and comfortable. Very much appreciated!!

This hotel is the only “five star hotel” in Siena. It is a very beautiful historic hotel. Unfortunately, the guest rooms are small and very old. Our room had almost zero luggage space, there were three concrete stairs down to the bathroom, and the bathroom smelled like raw sewage constantly during our three day stay. The service was vey good but they were understaffed. The food was average to good but very expensive.

Dear Guest, thank you for sharing and we are most sorry that you have reported an inconvenience only once departed from the hotel. We would have certainly undertaken any prompt corrective actions if we had been made aware of any issue, we have investigated the matter but no notice had been shared. Certainly we would have been able to assure you the most pleasant stay. Stairs in the rooms are of authentic travertine stone. Your comments have met our best attention for future improvements. We hope you may again choose the Grand Hotel Continental for a future stay. Kind regards, Nathalie Beaugonin Hotel Manager

Beautiful heritage building. Stunningly well placed in the historical center, accessible by car. Kind and efficient staff. Amazing breakfast buffet. Breakfast staff though not very present..Rooms are a bit out timed and small. Too expensive for what it offers.
