Translation:The hotel is too far away from the restaurant!
The restaurant could be close to the hotel, but if you party too much at the restaurant then the hotel might be too far ;)
I would. It's the same damned thing in reality. Just your point of reference matters. It's nitpicking on Duo's side imho.
Kezhi, he was inquiring due to the fact that duolingo doesn't accept 'too far' in place of 'too far away'. He wasn't debating the positioning of the words as far as I can tell.
Actually at the time I asked I was also confused about the order of the words in this construction. I get it now though. My Chinese is getting a bit better (-:
If the hotel is too far away from the restaurant, you should also accept that the restaurant is too far away from the hotel. The order doesn't matter in this case.
