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.

... br> Great visit to their fabulous Duomo tho' with Michelango's work in the Library of the cathedral. Stopped at an amazing extensive Deli/patisserie combo and bought some incredible cookies for trip home. So many seem to be made with almond or marzipan - I'm in heaven tho' this is the first time we've stopped to buy some. Had lunch at the main square Piazza. Don't think we have had a poor meal yet!! Italians are very ...
... town Siena and it is a really cool place. Very touristy but it somehow maintains a small town feel. The major square, piazza del campo, is a brick gymnasium chalk full of families couples and friends sitting on the sunwarmed brick relaxing. We had an amazing lunch. Anticas pizzeria looks like a butcher shop the size of a closet. Meat and ...
Siena is just another remarkable Italian city perfectly preserved from the Middle Ages (I wish i could say that) and brimful of classic Gothic architecture. This afternoon we climbed a church tower and we were briefly above the eagles, wind whistling through our hair, and spiritual thoughts racing through our heads, or was that just vertigo? The bus trip from Perugia was brilliant, past Lake Trasemino with its castles on islands, past fields ...
... a water person - not necessarily being in it, you understand, but I love looking at it, the way it contrasts with the buildings around it, the way the sun shines off it as it sets, the way it looks at night with the city lights all around it - and coming from somewhere like Venice to somewhere a bit more...."normal"....well, it's always going to be a step ...
... out to piazza michelangelo where word on the street, you could catch an amazing sunset overlooking the city. Proved to be right because I got to see a great sunset (check the pics). We only had 2 days in florence and with the heat, thats fine with me, so next stop is Cinque Terre, a place Ive never been, a first on this trip for me, and I hear is one of the most beautiful places on earth so its got much to live up ...
