Meet Flo: A Seven Year Hotel Guest Who Has Never Paid

By Monkeys And Mountains Adventure @Laurel_Robbins

Falkensteiner Hotel and Spa Carinzia

Flo arrived to the Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Carinzia seven years ago and shows no signs of leaving.  Not surprisingly, Flo has become a bit of a local celebrity with hotel guests.  Perhaps this is why she has been able to stay for seven years without ever paying for a night’s stay.  Smart girl!  I also have to admit she has impeccable taste.  Located in the Nassfeld Nature area of southern Austria, the four-star hotel is home to the amazing Acquapura SPA,  indoor/outdoor swimming pool and is built in a modern/natural architectural style.

I loved the views from the indoor/outdoor pool. Amazing!

The Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Carinzia is surrounded by mountains and beautiful alpine flowers in summer.  It’s also very close to my new favorite summer activity, the  Summer Roddelbahn, which I think every adrenalin junkie should try at least once.  In winter you can walk out your door and be skiing in minutes. I only stayed for one night and didn’t want to leave.  Flo is definitely living the high life!

Guests hoping to catch a glimpse of Flo, should be warned that like any celebrity, she can be hot or cold, depending on her mood.  I was fortunate enough to meet her on a good day and discovered her secret weakness….belly-rubs!  Unfortunately she insisted on not being photographed while in this vulnerable state.  Yes Flo is a cat!  But you gotta admit a pretty smart one with great taste!

Flo was agreeable to photos on the day that I met her, just not when I was giving her a belly rub.
