The Grand Hotel Continental, which is the only five-star luxury hotel within the walled city of Siena, reopened on the 14th of February 2002 after a full refurbishment that uncovered hidden frescoes of incredible beauty and restored the medieval tower which now distinguishes the building. A 17th century Italian palazzo was built by Pope Alexander VII for his niece, Olimpia, as a wedding present. The Palazzo stands in the pedestrian heart of the town, on the chic shopping street, in the borough known as the Contrada of the Dragon. It is just a few steps from the Piazza del Campo, famous for its bareback horserace, from the Basilicas of San Domenico and the Duomo. Everything is just a stone throw away.
On arrival, every guest is immediately given the feeling of having crossed the threshold into an exclusive place with an extraordinary atmosphere. The original interior layout has been maintained and 51 rooms were created many of which frescoed. They have been painstakingly restored and furnished with antiquities.
The fine dining restaurant is the place to taste delicious Tuscan specialties in an elegant atmosphere where the music soothes the mind and the seasonal specialties delight the palate. The Bar, situated in the crystal covered courtyard of the noble palazzo, is the home to the perfect drink. And last but not least, our wine cellar situated in the medieval tower, with its 600 labels is the ideal place to sip a glass of precious wine whilst savoring local cheeses and specialties.The views over the roof tops and on the Duomo, the renaissance painted ceilings, the fine cuisine and the terraces with blossoming flowers are all aspects which render the stay truly memorable.
