Tight fit

When I arrived at my hotel in Porto yesterday, I half-jokingly asked for a beautiful room.  Unfortunately they didn't have any left.  In fact the room was quite small, I was warned.  No joke!  The bed, which is a reasonable size for a single, takes up most of the room.  There isn't even enough room to open my cabin-size suitcase fully on the floor without leaning the opening half up against the wall.  The bathroom is a good size, though, which compensates a little.  The whole place has a slightly worn look about it, but it is spotless and the staff are friendly.  For €25 a night, breakfast included, I'm not complaining.

I'm off to the beach today.  The nearest is 10 minutes' walk from my hotel.
