Albergo Cannon d'Oro
Travel Blogs from Siena
Segun_coco stayed here on Apr 7, 2012 during their trip titled: La Toscana segun Claukoku.
Monday started our first weeklong field trip. Getting three hours of sleep wasn't that great (I was too busy packing, cleaning and BLOGGING to sleep!) I did get to sleep during the long bus ride to San Gimignano though. We got to walk around and look at the medieval town. We bought a few things and were able to take some great pictures of the …
After a good night's sleep we woke to a coolish room and Darren skipped out
to reboot the hot-water system. After warm showers we finished our
packing and headed up for breakfast. This morning we were treated to
some Finnish date cake (a Christmas special in Finland) as a
breakfast extra. We then farewelled Ivano who tried to …
Okay, so after leaving rome, we took a bus to Pienza, which is a little tiny town in the mountains. It rained. Of course. But was still beautiful...but again, when it rains in italy...it pours. My pants would get soaked all the way up to my thigh. Pienza was really beautiful but we could only stay for an hour and a half...and then back on the road …
... frescos. We walked to the Duomo after, which again is similar to the one in Florence with similar architecture and colors. After doing all the sightseeing we wanted, we took on the next challenge, finding and getting to our hostel. Luckily I was with Steph, who knows how to navigate and stays so calm. We had to take a bus about 4 miles from the center which doesn't seem that daunting, but when you don't speak Italian and don't know which bus and which direction to go ...

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.
The hotel is located ideally in the centre of Siena.
Great staff, family runned hotel. Very central and easily accessible.
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.
