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

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 ...
... told me i MUST have. i now know why. soo good. (thanks again for that tip kelly) When walking around with Korina the other day we ran into one her friends who is a musician from NY, although he has not lived there in 10 or more years. He had a concert that night, but didnt start till later 10, or so. By then i was good and sauced, and the concert was on the COMPLETELY other side of town, even more so than the Michelangelo square, although on the other side ...
