one night in Siena. The hotel just outside the city walls but a nice walk inside to main square. We were family of 4 and we got a kind of a peculiar room with an alcove up top with double bed and a single then down a kind of spiral staircase the second single bed (cot). This "mezzanine" level had the spectacular view across the Tuscan countywide but the "upstairs" did not and was a bit dark and attic-like (with AC so not hot). would have been awkward to stay for longer given the layout. Still, tough to get comfy accommodations for 4 in Europe where everything is lilliputian. The hotel lobby is beautiful, the staff super helpful, the views, million dollar worth. Finally, the breakfast was quite good and plentiful and we got to sit outside in a lovely garden with fruit trees and a fountain overlooking the fabulous tuscan landscape. Now that we are in Florence which is like Italian Disneyland, Siena and hotel there seem especially lovely and quaint.
