I was visiting in Bologna and decided to take a day trip to Firenze (so easy, 35 minutes by train).
A friend emailed his friend at Hotel Atlantic Palace and I was set.
I was greeted warmly by Francesco and David upon arrival. Those first few moments can make you feel so good and start everything off right. The hotel location is convenient to the train station and all those wonderful sights you must see (patience with the crowds). The street was a bit busy, but you would never know it inside the hotel. Quiet and calm. My room was generous in size. The best hotel bathroom I have seen in a while, Wonderful firm beds (I have been "airbnb ing" for quite a few weeks ... this room was a real treat). Closet space, a very classy writing desk, good climate control. At first the internet seemed slow, but I just moved to a second desk in the room and all was fine.
A fine hotel like this is just such good comfort after the demanding work of touring Italy (I know, life is tough). Thanks again to Francesco and David for making me feel so welcome.
