The Hotel Room is of a good size and was clean. I wasn't impressed with the organisation of the hotel and although the staff were polite, when problems occurred - there was no confidence that they would be resolved. IE, no bath plug, No phone working in the room and we required an extra pillow. Minor I know, but necessary. That being said, during our stay we did receive another pillow. Wi-Fi was great and free. The Swimming Pool was excellent and after I had been relieved of my wallet at Pisa by some scumbag, reception allowed me to call Australia free of charge and cancel the credit cards. All in all - I would stay here again and enjoyed my time here. Very nice food is served here.

... mie cose organizzate per avviare corsi di domani, e poi Gab mi ha invitato con lei, Alex, Jason e Jackson. Noi tutti incontrati al nostro posto e siamo andati a Il Duomo insieme. Ho parlato con mio padre sulla strada, quindi ero felice di arrivare a parlare con lui! Quando siamo arrivati, ci siamo guardati in giro dentro il Duomo per un po ', che è bellissima, e poi ha iniziato l'arrampicata fino 414 gradini per raggiungere la cima del Campanile di Giotto. Ci siamo fermati ...
... that Ino's has for purchase are Slow Food products (ground coffee, boxes of biscotti, and eucalyptus honey are just a few). Slow Food obviously supports other Slow Food products. We leave Ino's (were able to get a small table inside) and stop around the corner at Carapina, the gelato shop which Andrea at SRISA has recommended because of their Slow Food connection. They have many different flavors... Not the standard ones you see at all the other gelatorias). I try ...
... and didn't help at all. He did ask us why we needed so many bags, if we were planning on living in Italy, and that we were only two people. I told him thanks for not helping and we got on the bus.
The room is nice and the executive lounge here is nice. We have a view of the Duomo from the room and have two tours and cooking class coming up. I'm gonna upload the pictures in a few minutes.
Tomorrow we see Pisa, Siena, and Chianti.
