TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel President Prato
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! And they provided me with a kettle and all the necessary supplies to make coffee/tea in the room - very rare in Italy! It's only about 20 minutes from the Florence airport, a E25 taxi fare

They're almost ...
... things that are a bit overhyped and some are under repair but they are 300 years old and some of the Councils buildings are not fairing that well, would love to see County Hall after that amount of time, probably just a pile of bricks and asbestos.

My best eavesdropped conversation was ...

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 ...
... a "sunny lounge room with great views of the Signoria" but Cary had sublet that to a spanish couple. I think he must have been deaf because he talked so loudly usually from about 10pm into the small hours of the morning - they slept all day. He was
not to be the only noise problem.
Cary had no maps but did give me the name of a restaurant which served what was said to be Tuscan food, a couple of streets over. She was still washing the floor as I left. It was ...
