This is a Thursday’s Travels – Anything about previous, current and future (upcoming) travel exploits entry under my Travel themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.
As mentioned in the last Thurday’s Travels blog entry, the Hotel Leonardo Da Vinci was definitely the most interesting hotel that we stayed in. We didn’t opt for 5 class hotels during our trip nor did we go budget. Instead we chose 3 star hotels in good locations. Skai aka c(hubby) and I felt that locations were more important than the beauty of the hotel.
But of course, great locations comes at an exorbitant price. We stayed an ideal location which was kinda central but yet a little bit out of the way. Our hotel stay was SGD$1156.11 for 6 nights.
Long long long walk to our hotel. About 20 minutes from the train station.
The hotel was decorated with Leonardo Da Vinci’s works hence the name Hotel Leonardo Da Vinci. :p
Some pictures of the hotel room that we stayed in.
Tiny area to hang our clothes.
Our simple bathroom was clean, thankfully.
The room was pleasant unlike some of the hotels that we stayed in previously. The staff were also very friendly. We noticed that the room did not come with a kettle and we asked the staff at the front desk. She mentioned that they do not provide kettles but they’ll be able to boil water for us at their cafe.
So we sat there with our kimchi cup noodles and engaged in some small talk with the friendly staff. (Don’t judge us for our cup noodles! We were desperate for some spice and the kimchi noodles were HEAVENLY!)
Lovely stay in Hotel Leonardo Da Vinci though there were reviews that the traffic was quite noisy for guests, we didn’t hear a thing. Maybe cos we’re sound sleepers?
We took a stroll and stumbled into a night bazaar.
We couldn’t resist but to partake in a cheese and meat platter, sandwich and a few glasses of wine.
The atmosphere was amazing. People were having a picnic at the food bazaar, sampling wine, enjoying cheese and meat. It was extremely laid-back, the weather was great and everyone was just having fun. I really do miss this lifestyle.
We noticed another Duomo under reconstruction and couldn’t help but take a selfie in front of this beautiful architecture. Seriously, their buildings are so beautifully made.
We soon called it a night as we were tired from the journey.
On our way back to the hotel, we spied this lovely old couple holding hands and laughing away. We looked at each other, smiled and told each other that we’ll be like them. The Asian version of course.
I know that I sound like a sappy love sick fool but I really am happy to have found him. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him too. 🙂
I’ll soon be blogging about Florence’s other attractions in my other Thursday’s Travels entries! If you have any questions, please feel free to comment in this entry!
