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.

... after that, with instructions to meet in front of the Duomo at 2:15. I can't quite remember where we went to lunch, but I'm sure I had some sort of pasta. I was trying to remember where I had pasta with a porcini mushroom sauce, and it very well might have been there...
Anyway, we met back at the Duomo to go into that museum--we didn't actually go into the Duomo itself, but a few of us are planning to do that later. The big draw for the museum was ...

So today we decided to take a day trip to Siena. Apparently it's a picturesque little town that has a beautiful courtyard that once a year has one of the most dangerous horse races ever. Thankfully, we're not going during that time of year. So we arrived at the Florence train station with plenty of time to spare, went for a walk and bought an umbrella, and then purchased our ticket. We ...
We left Florence and traveled south toward Rome. We passed through Tuscany and stopped at several small towns before sharing our farewell dinner.

... really nice ceramic bowls and mugs that we wanted to get, but were afraid they wouldn’t survive the trip back in our luggage and shipping was prohibitively expensive (come on FedEx! Where you at when I really need you!?)
Our guided walk ended at the far side of town, I took a few nice pictures of the Tuscan countryside while Caitlin took a picture of my diet coke. While well composed with a nice bokeh effect, we’ll be working ...

My parents and I later walked for a few miles along a small dirt path through the Tuscan fields. From the blue-blue skies, the angelic white clouds, and the panoramic fields of different green colors, it was apparent that this was the famous Tuscany often heard about. For one, to say that the landscape was green would be a tremendous understatement, as if to say that everything I saw was the ...
