Grand Hotel Continental Siena
The Grand Hotel Continental Siena is housed in a magnificent 17th-century palazzo that radiates elegance and charm. With its architectural magnificence, historic splendor and flawless service, every stay is transformed into a truly unique experience. One of the most prestigious hotels in the city, it is a wonderful example of Italian elegance, history and art and the only five-star boutique hotel in the historic center of Siena. After passing through the hands of various Sienese families, the Palazzo was endowed by Pope Alexander VII as a wedding gift to his niece Olimpia Chigi on marrying the nobleman, Giulio de 'Gori in 1677. From that moment on it has been known as Palazzo Gori Pannilini. This sumptuous Palazzo, an architectural jewel, is part of the city's artistic and cultural heritage. Designed as a celebration of love and over the centuries it has hosted the historical figures who made Siena great.
The Grand Hotel Continental became a renowned hotel already at the beginning of the 18th century. Its spectacular frescoes, precious furnishings, fine marble and elegant atmosphere have charmed elite guests over the years, from young aristocrats to Queen Margherita of Savoy, from German politician Horst Koehler to famous artists such as Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dario Fo, Mario Botta, Andrea Bocelli and Daniel Craig. The interior of the hotel is in perfect synergy with the rich architectural lines of the façade, attributed to Carlo Fontana who also designed the Chigi Palace in San Quirico d'Orcia. Its sophisticated, elegant rooms and suites, with frescoed ceilings, original Tuscan cotto tiled floors and finishing 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 flavors 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.
