Subject: Hotel In Florence
David, we stayed at Pendini: via degli strozi 2 phone 21 11 70, They used to have a web sight. However the E -address was not as simple as www pendini etc. But it is out there. I think we did all our resv. through e-mail. It is just outside (steps really) the Piazza de Republica. In the middle of everything you could want to see and do. Double glazed windows and a/c in all rooms. Family run and EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. They even helped us make arrangements with our next hotel. They had an old Mac in the lounge where you could send and receive e- mail a couple of times a day. The price was right too! Good luck. DAvid
