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.

Dinner Sunday & Monday nights
Every night, for the most part, the agriturismo organizes a dinner for guests between 30 and 40 Euro a person. There were 6 of us Sunday night, and 8 of us Monday night, and we all sat around a big wooden table with benches for seating. We started the meal at 8pm as strangers - and we ended the meal as ...
... eyes (boy, did we need to rest – lots of walking and wine will do it every time). We limped back to our apartment and promptly fell asleep. A wonderful and beautiful day in the Tuscan sun!!
It was great to be chauffeured around – we really could not have done this on our own. Several times during the day, we commented to each other (with rolling eyes) how ...
... being human. I’ve been incredibly blessed in having the family that I do - supportive, caring, resilient and true. It’s the one thing I miss most as my travels across the world take me from coast to coast. Luckily, they’re the type of people that enjoy travel themselves, and when I learned my aunt and uncle that I hadn’t seen in over two years were going to be on this side of the globe, I ...
... next order of play. As the sun sets and we wait for dinner ( 8pm - OMG are we going to last that long) J and A are playing frisbee - life is good
Dinner was worth the wait and just as well we were hungry. A large communal table where three other couples joined us for a 5 course meal cooked by Tiziana and staff. 1. Pastry with procuitto layers ( James loved this and had 2 servings) 2. Tagliatelli with ragu 3. Pork with fried ...
The morning was spent doing washing - we were pretty smelly by this stage. Then the rest of the day was for swimming in the pool, and chilling out after the last few hectic days. Dinner was gnocchi - we all agreed that it was good to try, but not something we would do ...
