The Grand Hotel Continental is situated right in the heart of the Medieval city of Siena, almost directly opposite the stunning Piazza Salimbeni and just a few meters away from the legendary Piazza del Campo.
This magnificent 5 star hotel occupies a building which dates back to the 17th century when the project to build a magnificent aristocratic residence in the center of Siena was commissioned to the architect Giovanni Fontana by members of the city's extremely influential Chigi family. An extensive restoration and refurbishment program has brought the Palazzo Gori, now Grand Hotel Continental, back to all its former splendour.
The hotel has a total of 51 individually appointed bedrooms and suites, all furnished with beautiful pieces of antique furniture and period paintings, terracotta floors, marble bathrooms, and vaulted or coffered wooden ceilings. The suites of the Grand Hotel Continental offer the height of refined luxury. The Tower suite is distributed on two levels, with fabulous panoramic studio overlooking the roof tops of the historic center of Siena. Clients booking the hotel's San Cristoforo suite will find themselves in sumptuous rooms featuring a stunning 15th century fresco.
The hotel's "Sapordivino" restaurant provides a unique venue for lunch or dinner beneath a breathtaking crystal ceiling in the courtyard of Palazzo Gori. Here guests are treated to the finest Tuscan cuisine, with particular emphasis being given to dishes from the local Sienese culinary tradition.
The "Sapordivino" showroom offers a fascinating display of some 300 wines from both well established and emerging winemakers. Selected, sommelier hosted wine tastings are held in the medieval chambers discovered during the recent restoration work.
