Initially we noticed this hotel on a web site promoting last minute deals and it was offering a room including breakfast for €39 where every other hotel in the region was around 80 to 130 range. We decided not to book on line but just turn up and check it out first. On arrival we were pleased to find that there were still rooms available but the asking price now was €49 including breakfast. We did ask about the €39 deal but was politely told that was on line and last night , we tried to haggle but without joy. Still at €49 it was a good deal so we took two rooms between the four of us. The rooms were a good size not big but enough room to be comfortable. The bathrooms and linen were very clean and the heating was working well. A little too well in fact we turned down the room heating and opened the windows to cool the rooms down which made it very comfortable. The remainder of the hotel however was very warm and we found this uncomfortable. We were here in Early November so the outside temp was cool and the pool was not an option. There is a busy road at the front but with the double glazed windows the noise was not noticeable, until we opened the windows to cool the room, but at night no issues at all. The staff were all friendly and eager to help us, with directions and any other questions we had, the language barrier was not an issue, the hotel reception manager spoke very good English. Breakfast was very good offering a selections of cereals and breads cold meats cheese, pastries yogurts, fresh fruit and tea and coffee. Overall we were very happy write the hotel and its staff and would stay here again no problem. As for location it was a 20 minute walk up to the old city or a bus from outside the hotel for around €3 very well located.

The two medieval Tuscan cities are at peace now. The old fortress remains, as well as a beautiful Duomo Cathedral perched on the uppermost hilltop in the hilltop town. The cathedral is made from black and ...
... The Yellow Man's home - a farmhouse in Tuscany which is the place we are staying at now. In the story The Yellow Man makes a visit to Sienna - such a special occasion he even puts on clothes. The following is a quote from the author herself in the epilogue:
"No-one comments on the coulour of his skin, his nakedness or his antennae. Maybe it's because he doesn't make judgements, he is not grasping. Like nature he is just there, simply there......"
... suits looking after him and as he was rushing to the secret service standard black car he almost ran into Colin. We were then informed as it was the start of Culture week that some of the museums were for free including the gallery accademia (which houses the real David) so we went there expecting a massive line but it only took us 20 mins to get in FOR FREE yay we love FREE things its good that we got it for free ...
... and talk. I suggested we say we loose our tickets and see what they say, then we will play stupid. No way... Didn't work. The guy said if you loose the ticket you have to pay €50 euros to leave. No ******* way! I'm not paying for these drinks, no one ever said anything about this "pay at the end" system and they gave us priority entrance to the club. I guess they knew all Americans fall for that trick and spend more money. Okay, we are going to sneak out of this place from ...
