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's good! Third course was very thinly sliced roast beef, quite salty with olive oil and peas. Dessert followed with a thin slice of kind of a custard pie with pine nuts. All accompanied with a deeslishus white wine. Siesta time until our Nicchie room is ready then off to explore.
We are tremendously comfortable here - feels like we have come home - makes us realize that this is the kind of travel that works ...
... people in the church are tourists and not parishoners! We then we to dinner at a place I found on TripAdvisor and it was wonderful. The restaurant had an exposed preRenaissance castle wall on both sides. The waiter said it was the second resistancve wall for the city of Siena in Medieval times. Also, there were 2 caves below, where you can have dinner, but we are not cave dwellers and were happy to dine upstairs! All in all, a great dinner, a great day & great weather. Tomorrow - LUCCA!!
... covered with frescoes dating back to the 1200's. Interesting but for us not worth the 6 euro paid! The Baptistry was next on the list for another 3 euro each. This has some lovely frescoes and bronze panels depicting the life of St John the Baptist.
Then we get to the Cathedral, which is one of Italys greatest gothic churches started in 1196 & completed by 1215. We discovered here that you could get a pass to everything we had visited and more for 10 ...
... to the railing, so I arrive at the base of the ladder winded and exhausted. Alec takes considerable encouragement to get up the ladder, even with me right behind him. The view from the top is amazing, beautiful if you like such things, disorienting if you dislike heights. With the tower's height added to that of the hilltop on which the town sits, you are right up in the clouds. You can ...
