Say Hello to the Famous Cat
Posted Sep 3, 2015
We decided to stay halfway between Bologna and Parma, which is how we ended up in Modena. The front desk personnel, particularly Manuel and Manuella, were so cheerful and truly nice. The room was stuffy when we arrived and it didn't occur to me to open the windows until the next morning. Once I did the room aired out. I am compulsive about cleanliness, so I think normal people would consider the room clean. There was dust under the bed though and the bottom of the shower curtain appeared stained. This could have been a decorative border but I didn't look closely. The bathroom does not have enough surfaces for two people's bottles, etc. I don't think there is much that can be done about this. A lady who is, I think, an owner of the hotel, was delightful to talk to and very helpful. She bakes delicious cookies and cakes for breakfast. The cat, Geronimo, is well know around town and famous for a picture of him that has gone viral on the internet. He let us pet him, even though he's a star.
