The first thing I appreciated about the hotel was the location: exactly halfway between the railway station and the city centre. If you come from the railway station, there are marks on the way, so it's really easy to find. The hotel is clean and well-kept, with friendly and polite staff. There are many products to choose for breakfast and...

Hotel Minerva is situated closed to the city center. Large, clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Tasty breakfast. Closest to the train station too- 15 minutes walk. Internet access was excellent.

It's ok. But as other reviewers have said. Nothing exceptional. Very functional. Don't be fooled by pictures. You won't be sitting out looking over Siena. I am tempted to give 2* but it's not poor. Just very average.

We stayed 3 nights in Sienna at the Minverva. The hotel itself is clean and functional. The rooms are small with average older beds and average linens. The room was comfortable. The hotel has a garage which was a positive. The included breakfast was average for Italy. If we came after 9 there was not much left. The hotel has...

Hotel Minerva was reasonably priced, with large room and good-sized bathroom, good internet and somewhere to park the car (12 Euros per day). Excellent buffet breakfast, pleasant staff. Good location too.

A medium sized hotel within walking distance of the city centre. Covered parking available at additional cost. Rooms are mostly a good size. Overall the hotel looks rather tired and in need of investment/refurbishment. Breakfast is poor quality. Rates are medium to high.
