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.

Unfortunately, people have asked me what I think of Siena, and I think it is quite nice, and very pretty, but that's all I can really tell you. I was there, with a burnt hand.
But I did it nontheless!
Two more days in Florence, then I'm off to my next adventure!
Hugs to all,
Well, we left the kids at the airport Friday and headed to Tuscany. David, the tour guide, has a van rented. So, we went with him and another couple in the van to pick up his wife in Pisa. It was quite a ride. You don't realize just how crazy everyone drives until you are in a tiny van! We made it to Pisa finally, but couldn't get to the station to pick her up. There was construction. It was pretty funny driving ...
... the long walk so much more excitement. It was really fun. We were totally perves but we didn't care. On the way to the Palace, we found that famous bronze pig where you put a coin in his mouth, touch his nose, and make a wish. I did it, I hope my wish comes true. I wished I was big...like in the move. Just kidding, I really wished for the ability to fly. It didn't come true, maybe I didn't put in enough money. We kept going towards the Palace and we finally made it. We had to ...
... trying to fix the train situation with no luck. we'll figure it out when we get to Thomas' family's house in Geneva. Dinner on our terrace again. Life is wonderful in Florence.
