My original room
Typical European single, nothing to write home about and a little disappointing. However when I complained that the air conditioning didn't work, and was informed that my room actually didn't have AC (the website clearly states every room has AC) but I could upgrade for only $60 more per night I became irate and was upgraded to the room below.



Much better.

The weather was grey and it would rain a little in the afternoon, but forecasts had called for thunderstorms the whole time I was here, so I considered myself lucky for what I got.


Walked to the near-by opera house where stop #2 was...
