Historical Traveler Reviews Albergo Cannon d'Oro Siena
We stayed here 1/2/05. We decided to backpack to Siena at the last minute so had no place in mind to stay at. The nice thing about Cannon d'Oro is that it was a nice location, not to outrageously priced at 70 Euro. It included breakfast, which was good. The noise is horrible though for both inside the hotel and out from the street. The staff was friendly and spoke good english.
Too much money for poor quality
The hotel is located ideally in the centre of Siena.
The reception gives the impression of being in a
rather nice hotel.
When we entered our room we were shocked by
the state of the furniture. The veneers of the
wardrobe were hanging down in stripes. The bed
and the bedside tables were looking as if bought at
a second hand fleamarket. We feared that some kind of creepy crawlys might appear somewhere
in the room (which did not happen anyway).
The "electrical installations" in the bathroom were
a little dangerous so we had no real good feeling taking a shower next to a poorly insulated cable which was hanging loosely by the showers side,next to the showers curtain. However to pay
90 EUROS for one night (EXcluding breakfast) seemed to be a price which is not fair for a two-star
rated hotel which has the comfort of a youth hostel.
Nightmare in Tuscany
Great staff, family runned hotel. Very central and easily accessible.
Major disadvantage in our staying there (august 2003) was the noise. We had the 1 st room right next to the depository room, right after the lobby. People were yelling and singing around 7am...very disturbing. We told the manager that we we not too happy...but guess what...next morning, same story. They don't even bother to close the door from the lobby to the hallway...At check out, he did knock off 10 euros out of the 80 charged.The room was rather clean but it looked like we were staying in a hospital room. Bed was made of poor quality, the lighting would be comparable to what my grand-father use to have in is garage back in the 70's...Toilet was clean and spacious, nice italian ceramics.We stayed there 2 nights but took off right after. Most probably you could find quieter rooms in this place...just ask before.
Clean, Helpful, Friendly
This is a great place to stay. I found it on the internet. The information that the hotel gave was identical to our experience. It is convenient to all of the major sites (and a secure parking garage). I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
A great location, nice staff, noisy rooms
We stayed at the Albergo/Hotel Cannon D'oro in Siena, Italy in early December 2003. It was a fantastic location. We paid 70 Euros for a double room including breakfast (off season rate). The room was fine, however, with the ceramic tiled floors as are common in many European hotels, the echo of the doors slamming in the hallways was my only complaint. It was quite noisy...and this was with the hotel nearly empty as far as I could tell. However, if you are looking for a very clean hotel, with good service, typical breakfast, and great location, I would recommend this hotel. It is a very short walk from the bus station, el campo, and right across the street from the consorzio siena which is a grocery store that sells typical tuscan fare.

... It took about an hour to get to the family run winery, but along the way we learnt about the route that we were taking. It was the route the pilgrims took to Rome. It passes through various countries and towns and eventually ended in Jerusalem. Quite interesting really! We passes fields of sunflowers that although they weren't in bloom this time of year, they were being harvested to make sunflower oil. It would be beautiful to see them when in bloom. Once we arrived ...
... battle for political and economic superiority, Siena has some equally impressive historical sites.
The city's origin is shrouded in myths of wolves and martyred saints. According to legend, Senius the son of Remus (one of two brothers that founded Rome), founded Siena. That is reason the city uses the “she-wolf” with two baby boys suckling as a city symbol. Another legend says that St. Anasno brought Christianity to Siena and although he ...
... but the grapes looked ripe and juicy already. Went back to the apartment where Markus grabbed a flask and promptly started to squeeze out sweet nectar from the grapes, enough for 2 small glasses per person. It tasted good. Pretty sweet already, so the alcohol content from this year’s Chianti’s might be on the high side.
Freshened up and chilled out downstairs to bask in the sunset before we drove to La Canonica again, where ...
... in many places is almost allways breathtaking. The crypt is a nice escape from the heat, a cool underground cavern with the remains of painted walls. The works here aren't so splendid, but it's still interesting to look around an underground cave. Particularly the glass sections in the floors and roof, looking down to the supports below and up to the duomo above. The duomo itself is more imposing than elegant, but still beautiful, with the glass ...
... get the pronanciation right is even more impressive than Cinque Terra!!). It was as picturesque as we remembered this walled hill top village to be, although a little diconcerting to find what were olive groves that we had walked thru to be new building sites for town houses and a big roundabout and lots of carparks for buses etc. Due to San Gimmi being a little more touristy than we remembered we changed plans from ...
