Our airline could not get us to Barcelona to board our cruise ship until a day after the ship had sailed. So we needed to make arrangements to meet the ship in Florence two days later, and thus needed to find a hotel at the last minute. I was tired, grumpy about the delay in departing, and not feeling up to choosing a hotel at the last minute. While looking under "Florence, Hotels" online, this one popped up. Bathroom, close to the Duomo, medium priced...OK, looks good to me. Booked! After a disappointing beginning to our cruise, we were so happy to have the taxi round the bend and there was the Duomo in front of us. And our hotel was directly across the street. The ancient elevator was classic, the staff at the desk was so accommodating, and the room was charming. We were certainly within walking distance to most of the great attractions in Florence. We were very lucky to have happened upon this place on a moment's notice. It is not fancy, huge, or Holiday Inn cookie cutter perfect, but we enjoyed our stay and were very satisfied to have found this hotel online. The front desk helped us make arrangements to meet our ship in Livorno the next day, and our Italian adventure finally began.
