Would have got 5 stars from us except we got the last room which was smoking and we are not. The hotel is right in the center of UNESCO old town, great music unless you are a light sleeper. Staff were great.

Too bad we only got to hear it played for a few moments.

This isn't the first time I've asked this question, but why do flea market-type places always have not one but several people selling old television remote controls? Where the **** do they get them from? I saw a place on the street in Cairo selling them and I just don't get it. Never, ever, have I seen or heard of someone saying, "Damn! I really must got to the old black market and buy a TV remote." And ...
... circuit and we are dropped at the centre of the old city for a walking tour with our guide.
The starting point for the walking tour is adjacent to the "Museum of Occupation" and our guide spends a few minutes giving us a bit of a download of what the situation was like under the Soviets. I have to say that there is not a lot of rancour in they way they tell the story, but you get the clear impression that while they may eventually start to forgive ...
