I enjoyed the Hotel President - basic but very comfortable with great service. When I arrived the air conditioning wasn't working on my floor but they got it fixed pronto, which certainly exceeded my expectations!

Alternatively, if you are quick to answer the affirmative you may fit in category b) you know and embrace the fact that you completely suck but you think you're a little bit funny so you'll give it a crack for some laughs, because everyone loves a confident funny friend willing to put themselves out there. I admire both of these two categories, but I also ...
... over dinner that they usually come on Tuesdays so I'd put my valuables in my suitcase and locked it just to be safe. When I came in it looked spotless, but along with emptying the bins, I'd realised they had taken my dirty clothes bag. I'm not quite sure how they could have mistaken dirty clothes as rubbish as it was like my best undies, a few tops and a dress that I was planning on washing shoved into a plastic bag ...
... the old ideals. The shopping here is also amazing, even without the budget for those stores I mentioned earlier. Lots of pedestrian-only shopping streets with beautiful fashion at all price points. We took a break from all the walking at the Rivoire Cafe on the Piazza della Signoria, which has the famous Palazzo Vecchio. Rivoire is famous for their ultra-thick and rich hot chocolate. It was luxurious and delicious. We wandered the town some more ...
