Central Park Hotel, Modena, Italy

There's a lot more about my recent trip to Italy here; this is a brief account of my stay in the Central Park Hotel in Modena.
This was a nice hotel - apparently 4 star - with staff that spoke good English. And a little tiny bar. The hotel was located on the fringe on the old city center, well within walking distance of all ends of the old city. I know, because I walked it. Parking was on the street, but that is the norm there. The hotel is across from (I think) the library, and a really old beautiful church.

Unlike the last place I stayed in Italy, this was 100% smoke free. Which, at least to me, is a really good thing.

The rooms are European - small and functional. I had a trendy bedroom, well trendy by my standard. And the bathroom - Oh, the bathroom - so trendy I didn't want to leave it!

A door view of my room. See - narrow!

A space-age shower

Look! A toilet sticking out of the wall. And a place to wash yer socks! hehhehehe

And the room. Look - wee beds!

The breakfast there was nice too - a usual buffet - not as elaborate as some of the German or Austrian places, but good none the less. Cereal, rocket-fuel coffee, cold meats, really good cheese, fruit, bread, yoghurts, cake and other stuff.

And to top it off, lots of Pavarotti playing in the breakfast room. Makes for a nice start to the day.

Overall, a nice place.
