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.

... books but the number of steps between 400-500. One even has 503. To give you some perspective, Bunker Hill is 294. There was one VERY claustrophobic section towards the beginning, where we all acknowleged later, that we thought "this might have been a bad idea!" We had a few of those thought in the climb up the dome in St. Pauls in London, mostly, because of the seeming fraglile wood stairs.... this tower, was all ...

... It all started innocently enough. A little dusting of snow at daybreak that melted by 8:00AM. By 11:30AM we had a blizzard. Vancouver would have been envious! Lesly's class was canceled. We were completely apartment-bound. The snow is just now (7:00PM) letting up so we are going to venture out into the neighborhood to see ...
... them. There are 56 panels depicting scenes from Old Testament as well as the secular world. The mosaics cover the entire floor of the cathedral and took nearly two centuries to complete. Only part of the floor was visible because they cover portions of it to protect it from the constant footfalls of the tourists. I really wish we would have had more time in Siena. We could have spent another couple of hours ...
... by calling the hostel again, but we arrived eventually, and the owners were "Awesome" They said ciao and grazi like it was going out of style, but were just ever so friendly. We knew what we had to do. Walk around. I was getting a little tired of walking around everywhere, but some things needed to be done. So we walked and walked and walked, seeing a big bridge, another bridge that was fuullll of gold! Every store was ...
