No, not that one. That belongs in the movie "A room with a view"
My room is in a different country. And my room has a terrace with a view !
No, I don't get a view over the Arno in Florence, but I get a view over the Golden Horn in Istanbul (Yes, my American friends, there is actually a country called Turkey, just like the bird !)
|What is it with the hair? Geert Wilders, the Dutch Trump|
A post-script to the above: I'm really wondering what mental age politicians have these days. No, I don't mean Trump, LOL. The Dutch refused landing clearance in Holland for the plane of the Turkish foreign minister. Agreed, not a very civilized thing to do. In return, Istanbul cancelled its sister-city relationship with Rotterdam and the Turkish Meat Association send Dutch cows back to Holland. Is a mental age of 5 absolutely required to be a politician these days?
But back to my room with a view:
|OK, so this autostrade is a bit close to the balcony ;-)|
You might say I'm showing my Big Spender side in booking this room.
Far from the truth, LOL. 81 Euros (CAD 116, US$ 86) is the TOTAL bill for THREE nights. Yup, that is less than US$ 30 per night.
Breakfast is NOT included but is available for CAD 6. But most likely I won't even go for breakfast. Because I know that at the foot of the very nearby bridge, there is a man who shows up at 6 am with his cart.

And those buns are DELICIOUS ! And in contrast to my last visit, I will even know how to say Good Morning this time ;-)
