A luxury boutique hotel housed in a 17th-Century Palazzo, right in the heart of Siena’s ancient centre.
City hotel locations don’t come much better than Grand Hotel Continental. This boutique retreat is right in the heart of Siena’s historic car-free centre, just steps from the iconic Piazza del Campo and Duomo di Siena. Most visitors come to this UNESCO World Heritage Site for the day, so by staying at Grand Hotel Continental you’ll be able to experience the city at its best: during early mornings and evenings, when it belongs to the locals.
The hotel is a member of Leading Hotels of the World and it’s a glorious example of Renaissance architecture, with beautiful original frescoes and elegant antiques. It manages to blend old and new, and the warm service means that it never feels stuffy. Previous guests read like a ‘who’s who’ throughout the centuries.
Rooms are packed with art and history. We recommend upgrading to a Junior Suite for your own slice of outdoor space overlooking the city rooftops. For drinks and dining, there’s a sophisticated Tuscan fine dining restaurant and a charming courtyard bar, but the stand-out is the impressive wine cellar, which is located at the base of a recently rediscovered medieval tower that dates back to the 13th Century.
In the heart of Siena, just a 5-minute walk from the iconic Piazza del Campo
