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.

Back in the car and on our way to Montepulciano Grant says… “Ok.. I think we are in Tuscany and the sun is shining… does that mean we can leave now?” Show this guy a movie with anything Italian and forever it will be quoted back to you! (For those who haven't seen it... Under the Tuscan Sun was the reference!).
Essentially today is a travel day. We left at 10am “ish” and should arrive around 3pm. ...
... it was all over,... except,.. for the oceans of people that invaded the track ( even before the horses had completed the final lap),.. to be a part of the ensuing celebrations. We could do little but to watch and try to take it all in. The human tide then flowed, following the winner and his/her district contingent. The winner,... the Dragon District. We joined the exodus and made our way back to the escalators,.. finally getting back to our Motorhome around 9.00pm. What a day!! ...
After the excitement of the horse race the night before this morning it was time for some practical activities - the laundry. We caught the bus into town armed with two big bags of laundry and with some help from an elderly Italian lady who showed us where to put the powder and we were in business.
While the washing was doing its thing, we went off to the Duomo. The streets are full of ...
... and cannot help but compare it to our Australia day!
If you think we were at the end of our night, you are mistaken. We are then introduced to more interesting people. This guy is a collector of artefacts and his house is filled with numerous BC pieces of art. Before we are introduced to him we are told that he makes the rest of them look sane! So true! Before I get the "please to meet you" out of my mouth, we are whisked accross ...
Hello from Siena, Italy! Thanks to everyone for your well wishes about Mom's travels. I'm happy to report that she arrived safely on Tuesday afternoon. She ended up with just a bit more than 24 hours in Venice due to the delay. But to look to the positive side, Delta upgraded her to business class for her troubles. After a quick rest after her arrival, we geared up to go make the most of the short time we had ...
