Some of the rooms faced the back and others faced the side alley which was noisier. The location of this hotel is ideal for visiting this town. Everything is within walking distance and it was only a few minute walk from the bus stop (much closer than taking the train). There were many steps to get to our rooms but it was fine for us. The breakfast room was a bit of an odd hike and the food was just ok. Also, the bathrooms were a bit odd with no border on the shower. You flood the bathroom floor making it very slippery! Be careful!

Hotel advantage - it is within a short walk reach from historical center. But this is also disadvantage - very noisy at night. Absolutely ask for rooms on a quiet side. Rooms are rather small with old furniture. Air conditioning exists, but also old and a bit noisy. Its impossible to reach the hotel by car, not only all GPS systems become stupid in Siena, it also within restricted area where cars not allowed.

The Cannon d'Oro is a lovely small hotel right in the centre of Siena. It is clean, quiet, and beautifully kept - a perfect base for exploring the city. We arrived on the bus from Florence, knowing little about Siena, and discovered that not only is the Cannon d'Oro only 5 minutes' walk from the bus station, it is only 5 minutes' walk from most of the beautiful sights of Siena and is in the middle of the main shopping area. The hotel is set back from the main shopping street (via Montanini/via Banchi di Sopra) and you enter it through a small covered lane which speaks of the centuries of history of this lovely place. Hence, noise levels are low even though the hotel is in the centre of things. While only rated two stars, the hotel is kept spotless and the rooms are beautiful and romantic. No air conditioning, but the ceiling fans do make a difference.

We had 1 and 1/2 days visiting Cathedral, Baptistery, Museo dell Opera, Museo Civico, Palazzo Publico etc or just walking around. That was my last chance to show Duccios works to my wife because we are nearly 80. Cannon d'Oro is a romantic place to stay, clean and quiet but may be not suited to elderly people who do not like climbing staircases. Breakfast was good and professionally served but to find the breakfast room (Collazione) for the first time was a bit of exciting exercise. Siena is a comparatively costly town but that is the price you should pay for being submerged in real and fast unbroken Middle Ages (if you can ignore the flow of turists).

Hotel is in the center, perfect position, simple, cheap, clean, breakfast satisfying (but do not expect more then rolls). Some rooms are on the main street side, so there is big noise whole the night(unless you close the door, that is of course impossible in the summer). There is not big problem to find the hotel, but do not rely on the GPS very much in the narrow streets of Siena. The access for cars to the Siena is limited, but you can drive to hotel and unload luggage - I was little bit confused with restriction signs and streets without cars. Parking is nearby (3 minutes).

We had a great stay at the Canon D'Oro. The reception man spoke English and was very accomodating since we arrived much earlier than planned. Our room was very spacious and had a drop-dead-gorgeous view of the Tuscan hills. This hotel was everything I hoped it would be. Check-in and check-out were painless and the location of the hotel was fantastic. We arrived by bus and left by bus and it was an easy 5 min walk to/from the SITA and SENA bus stop (Gramsci). I definitely recommend the Canon D'Oro.

The hotel on the positive side is very clean and location is very good, even the walking distance to the parking lot is very good. The staff is very friendly. For the price and location you cannot beat it. The hotel is clearly not a luxury accommodation, however it is in desperate need to be remodeled.

The only advantage of this hotel is its location. Everything else is crap. It totally does not worth the money. The rooms are small, looks odd, are not comfortable and you have no facilities, excepting the internet which was sometimes working. I paid too much (70 Eur, no breakfast) for this hotel and even if it was cheaper, I would never stay in there. It is just a tourist trap.

Hostel style hotel in prime location in the historical centre of Siena. There is no air conditioning, only a ceiling fan, so it was quite hot. This seems to be the standard for Siena though. It was also quite noisy at night, but that's to be expected for such a central location. Breakfast not great, but no worse than the typical Italian hotel breakfast, which is pretty dire.

Hotel Cannon d'Oro proved to be an ideal choice for our three day visit. Perfect location from which to explore the whole city with all of the main visitor attraction within easy walking distance. Although sited on one of the main streets leading to il Campo, the property was very quite at night with no hint of disturbance. Bus terminal a couple of minutes away, whilst rail station only 5-10 minute bus trip thus allowing easy travel (bus or train) to Florence, Pisa and beyond. Our days (and particularly the evenings) in Siena won't be forgotten. From peaceful and relaxing, to enlightening and entertaining – not generally something you could experience in most UK cities – the Italians seem to approach life from a totally different perspective that the brits and the location and amenities of Hotel Cannon d'Oro proved to be ideal in allowing us to experience it first hand.

Our room was spacious because we reserved a triple for two people. Otherwise, the rooms are not spacious, but adequate. The man at the front desk when we got there didn't speak English and wasn't friendly. The location is great. We had a lovely view out our window. No elevator available, so you'll have to carry your luggage upstairs. There was an elevator, but it had a sign warning that it wasn't available, so you might be able to make special arrangements ahead of time (?). Breakfast was the usual uninspired rolls, cereal, and yogurt. All that considered, I would still not mind staying here again, but I would look around at my options first.

I think the hotel caters to groups and if you are a single traveller you feel really out of place here. It is in a good location as far as being easy to reach from the bus station and all the major sights but the downside of the location is that it is noisy. When groups travel they are sooo noisy when they come and go.Breakfast is just average, not as good as other hotels for the same price.

Stayed in Canon D'Oro for just 1 night. Location was absolutely brilliant as travelling with children who don't like to walk. Very central to all the local sites. Bedroom was spacious for 4 people and was quiet for sleeping at night. Air conditioning kept room really cool, but really loud so unable to keep on during the night. The only other fault I would find is with the shower. The shower is the wet floor type which was a bit messy and akward for 4 people using a bathroom. Breakfast was not great, but could get lovely breakfast and coffee in local coffee shops. Receptionist spoke English which was great. We reserved car space in local garage through hotel and got discount. Garage very near to hotel for walking. Would recommend hotel for short break.

The room, while plenty large for a single and respectably clean, was more like a cell than anything else. For some reason, I was uncomfortable there and felt like i didn't belong in the room. Could not get the ceiling fan to work. The location is great, however on a Saturday night that also meant it was VERY loud and there was no way to really get any sleep. And then in the morning I was able to hear every maid, guest and staff person yelling their business because I was on the ground floor. Breakfast, served in a very nice room upstairs, was almost all packaged.

The hotel is very well situated, right in the middle of everything. The person who greeted us was not particularly welcoming and reluctantly helpful but the other staff were much more welcoming and helpful. Sienna is a really great city. We were offered no help with our suitcases and there were a lot of stairs, so be preared and travel light! We had a triple room #37. One double bed and 1 single. It had a really nice view and it would have been very quiet except that there was a big concert nearby. The breakfast was very basic, cereal, yogurt, very hard rolls, nutella, juice, coffee. It was adequate but not tasty. We only spent one night so it was fine but if I were to stay longer, I might try somewhere else if the price was comparable.

The whole experience was truly excellent - the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel is in a top location - central but tucked in behind the facades of Siena's main street, and the breakfast was a nice bonus.

The location of the hotel is excellent but that is all. This is a very, very basic hotel. The door knob to the room was broken and did not work properly. The shower only has a curtain and when one showers the water basically floods the bathroom-very, very inconvenient. The towels are extremely thin (clean though). Something that was like a foam was provided and a soap-lucky I had shampoo. Forget about the free internet-IT DOES NOT WORK. I tried it in the room as well as downstairs in the hotel-it does not work anywhere. On the good side, it is very clean, breakfast was dissent, staff was ok and as I said, the location is excellent. The price was too high I thought for what was offered.

The bathroom is spacious, but there is not a single hook or shelf for toiletries. Very inconvenient. The shower sprinkler is unreachable, fixed very high up with no way to bring it down. Bidet sprinkler was broken. Terrible WiFi. There is no signal in the rooms. There is no public place with a good signal - try standing for 15 minutes in a corridor with laptop. And where there is a good signal, the connection goes up and down. Do not count on their wifi. The breakfast was spoiled by terrible coffee. Hey, in Italy? That's a crime. And brioches were stale.

A great hotel, close to the main Piazza. Noise coming from the street below is fairly loud at night, but not so bad if the windows are closed. The room was spacious and was cleaned each day.

The hotel is situated within the city walls and 5 minutes walk from IL CAMPO. However, its proximity to the heart of the town was problematic for people arriving by car. We could not find the hotel even with our Garmin GPS which kept directing us to enter into streets that were authorized for entry. We were literally going in circle and then decided to call the hotel. The receptionist on staff that night was very patient with us, and it took all of 15-20 minutes of navigation help from him to get us to the hotel. The hotel has no elevator service so be prepared for some heavy lifting if you have big luggages. The breakfast was also very good especially their coffee. Overall, an excellent hotel for the price but make sure to arrive before it gets dark.

Hotel carino in zona centrale, personale gentile e disponibile, purtroppo la camera a piano terra subiva il rumore delle "mandrie" di turisti in spostamento. Ogni tanto l'acqua calda non usciva dai rubinetti, ma per fortuna è estate. Rifarei sicuramente il bagno: il soffitto nero per l'umidità non è un bel vedere

The location was excellent and the service outstanding. The size of the room was quite a surprise! We were thrilled. All the employees working the front desk were very nice and helpful. The woman working when we checked in and out was beyond helpful. She was outstanding. We loved reading the history of the hotel in the brochure we picked up. I think it would be something to advertise as we found it made the stay more special. We were very pleased with this hotel and the location. We would highly recommend it and stay there again.

Hotel Cannon d'Oro was a great place to stay. We were there for four nights and loved Sienna. The staff was very friendly especially the night clerk, Brian. The location was perfect. It was very close to the bus stop and was close to the piazza and other attractions. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was a usual European fare and the serving room was very pleasant. We had to leave on the bus before breakfast (5:00 am ) on our last morning and Brian packed a bag with juice and croissants for us. We were very appreciative of the kindness shown and great service provided. We would definitely stay there again. The only drawback ... there was no elevator which might make it difficult for some travelers.

Our room was very nice and clean with a comfortable bed. It was the smallest of the 3 places we stayed while in Italy, but we didn't need much more. I was traveling with my 20 year old daughter and maybe would have appreciated 2 beds, which I am sure we could have asked for, but one double was fine for the one night we stayed. The staff was very competent and helpful and spoke good English. The breakfast was the best we had at the 3 places we stayed in Italy. It was in a room on the 2nd floor of the hotel. There was a large assortment of coffees, juice, milk, cereals and pastries. It was very nice to get a good breakfast to start the day. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

The written directions to the hotel were the only real weakness. It is a bit complicated because of the layout of the town and the restricted area of the old city, so really good directions would be very helpful.

I stayed on the top floor towards the back of the hotel. Very quiet and a nice view. Staff very helpful and accomodating. A little tough finding the hotel in the maze of city streets, once I found it, easy to get in and out of the hotel to drop off and pick up bags. Required parking about half a mile away. Great location in the city center for the sights, shopping and dining.

Cannon d'Oro was a great little hotel right in the centre of Siena. It was only a 5 minute walk from Piazza Gramsci where the main bus station into and out of town is. The hotel is easy to find as there are signs. The staff at the hotel were great and really friendly and helpful. The room was not overly big but not too small and as I was solo this was not a problem. The bathroom was nice and spacious. The only problem I had was that my room was on the ground floor next to the stairs so you could hear every single person running up and down the stairs. I had a great stay in Siena and would stay here again

Wonderfully, centrally located - in the "don't drive area", so give them your car license number, and they'll make sure you don't get a ticket. Parking is a bit of a problem: I ended up a 15-minute walk away, near the fort - but paid nothing for it (follow the signs to the stadium). There's fee parking nearer the property, for about 18EUR/day. The room was fine; I'd booked a single, and got a double. Clean and comfortable. It was on the ground floor, and a bit noisy inside the hotel in the morning. The streets outside exhibited the usual clangs and noises you get in the center of any an Italian city - no big deal. The receptionist when I arrived was an ex-pat Brit, and wonderfully helpful. Other staff were entirely competent and efficient. Breakfast was in a room on toe other end of a rabbit-warren of passages ... and a bit disappointing by comparison to other Italian hotels I stayed at on this trip: so-so coffee, and a limited selection, although perfectly adequate. They looked after my luggage during the day I wandered around the city before bringing the car back to pick it up. Overall: recommended.

Very easy to find in a great location in Sienna. A little noisy because of people walking by at night. we had a room with a window to the alley way. But besides that, it was great! Free wireless access was great!

This is a very poor hotel. The rooms are very disappointing and the breakfast appalling. Staff are surly and there is no elevator - we were on the second floor and there was no offer of help with luggage. Fruit juice is from plastic cups, cereal is taken in flat plastic trays, croissants are like cakes etc etc. We would not stay again, and we don't think you should recommend this hotel.

The coffee really is not drinkable! Also all the breakfast foods are very pre packaged. The welcome on the front desk also depends who is on . One very friendly man, another very grumpy! The location of the hotel is its best feature.

We couldn't have asked for more helpful staff during our one night stay. Providing us with a map before we even asked, helped us to organise getting to San Gimignano for the day and even printed out train times to help us back to Pisa. The rooms were lovely and clean as well as being nice and cool when it was so hot outside. Location is fantastic.. right in the centre of Siena... couldn't have asked for anything more for our fleeting visit. Definitely highly recommended and would return in the future. Grazie mille!!

Very good hotel - within walking distance of most restaurants and places of intrest. This however meant it could be quite noisy at night especially so because we visited the week before the palio.

Very, very unpleasant arrival, with employees not only denying to help us with our luggage, but also responding in a bad-humoured way. Rooms are clean and spacious, but it might be paid attention, as they differ markedly among them (light, noise, views). The hotel is weel-located, near de city centre and the bus stop, but I do not recommend it for people carrying heavy luggage or aged, as there is no lift and stairs are steep. Also, the breakfast is poor: indutrial pastries, cold coffee, no fruit nor cereals.

This is a lovely hotel in the heart of Siena. We had a quad (for a family of four) which was pretty and very spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking is a little tricky, but it seems so for any hotel in Siena. We would definitely stay in this hotel again.
