    Historical Traveler Reviews Albergo Cannon d'Oro Siena

    Just okay...


    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 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.

    ... for 6 weeks of the year. Another postcard is attached to give you some idea of the grandeur. There are a few Michelangelo statues in this church. It continues to amaze me that there can be so many churches that look like this in one country. And I haven't even been to St Peter's Basilica in Rome yet! Another important church in Siena is San Domenico. On the right side of the church, there is a nave that contains the head of St Catherine of Siena who along with St Francis ...

    Happy Tuesday, and Happy Birthday, Mike! Today is our tour day, arranged by Eileen and me before our departure. Originally, we were to focus on wine country, but since we've already been to two wineries (with the credit card charges to prove it), we refocused this somewhat to include Siena and San Gimignano, cities that were reasonably close to Florence, had a reputation for culture (and shopping), and might provide some food ...

    ... one of medieval madrigals just outside the church and a choir on the inside. I video taped those performances to share at a future date. Inside of the duomo, we were amazed at the amount of art and scuplture within the walls of a single building. It seems like there is more art and historic artifacts in many of these European churches than you can find in many large city museums in the United States. Even the floors were ...

    ... holds the copies of all of the Greek original work dating back to the 3rd century that the popes and bishops would read out of. These books are ginormous and the cover and bindings are made out of animal's leather.

    Overall it was a pretty small city and very quiet and quaint. Unfortunately we were really rushed while we were there so if we have time we might want to go back to explore more

    ... sitting around enjoying the sunshine. i'd read in my trusty guide book that the view down the valley from the back of the town hall was amazing so i went walking to find that. i then walked back up a steep hill to the duomo (cathedral) where i stopped for a lunch/reading break. the inside of the duomo was really beautiful, it was all black and white striped stone and some ...
