Lions and Tigers and ... Oh My!

I always book my hotel on booking.com a very good website for deals and also for balanced reviews and ratings by guests. This trip up to Milano has been a bit difficult because it is the end of Fashion Week and hotel prices are a bit steep. I finally choose a reasonably price hotel near La Scala - two blocks away, how close can I get without being on stage??? - called the Hotel Star.



A very pleasant lady checked me in, was very helpful with details and the hotel itself is clean, well-equipped and the room even has slippers and a robe. The only thing is the decor - not that it is objectionable just that I'm not sure I really want to wake up in the middle of the night to a crouching tiger lioness or the shadows cast by the rather tentacle like lighting fixture.

Oh well its only for one night.

PS: As David pointed out - and it was more than obvious except to me, who was still no doubt dazzled by the 6'2" transvestite who had shared his lunch table on the train with him - the creature on the wall isn't a tiger at all. Duh and I actually passed zoology!

Hi, Will. I bet the check-in woman could see your inner tiger upon check-in. Now I want to go back to Milan to stay there.....

Best to L and the 'hunds.

Scary little room, looks like something out of a Richard Jones production. Mind you, I don't have to have been an XYZer (Exceptional Young Zoologist) at London Zoo to tell you that's a lioness, not a tiger...unless it morphed in the night...
