The Hotel

A Sienese jewel

The only 5-Star Luxury hotel within the old walls of the city of Siena is the Grand Hotel Continental, an architectural jewel of exclusive luxury in the medieval heart of this ancient city.

History and art are an integral part of this magnificent 17th century building, also known as Palazzo Gori Pannilini, a wedding gift from Pope Alexander VII, a member of the powerful Chigi family, to his niece Olimpia.  The frescoes are grandiose, the furniture priceless, the marble refined and the atmosphere is so romantic that throughout the centuries it has won over the hearts of a truly élite clientele.  Young aristocrats came here in the 1800s, as did Queen Margaret of Savoy, German statesman Horst Köhler, not to mention such modern celebrities as Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dario Fo, Mario Botta, Andrea Bocelli and Daniel Craig.
