This is a fabulous 3 star hotel. We loved our stay. We had a large comfortable room. It is a family run hotel and they were all so very friendly and helpful. We were working at Monash and it was a short walk. Great cafes and restaurants close by. We'll be back for sure.

The hotel is right in the center of Prato, there must be 20-30 restaurants within a five-minute walk. Breakfast is nice, AC works well, showers are tiny but everything works, employees are very friendly and warm, most speak pretty good English. Not a bad choice if you end up staying in Prato.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Giardino, and is in a great location (right next to the Duomo) and very close to Monash University. The rooms were quite large and well kept, and particularly as I stayed during the middle of summer, I did not find sound outside noisy at all. The hotel staff were all helpfuland very friendly,...

Conveniently located off the square and 3 blocks from train station. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Room is large and clean. Bathroom is fair sized as well. Bed is rather firm which was a problem for my wife. Has an elevator. No air conditioning. Because of street noise one can't leave the windows open. Not a major issue unless... More

Brilliant location, especially if you are attending meetings at the Monash University Centre. Only a few minutes away. Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. Charming and warm. Giardino is right next the the lovley duomo and there are many other beautiful churches and museums. While Prato is a small city, the old town is very compact. The hotel is... More

very welcoming and friendly atmosphere, close to the station and in the center of Prato. Clean and comfortable room. Good breakfast and friendly staff. When we arrived they could not find our reservation because they misspelled our name but then they carefully checked and found the hotel reservation, they are very nice. I highly recommend it

Spent 4 nights or so here - hotel seemed a little bit tired, but then again, Prato is probably a bit overshadowed by Florence in terms of tourism. The price wasn't exorbitant for what you got, and the room was actually quite spacious, with a window that opened fully to overlook the street and town square. Location is great for... More

I have repeatedly either stayed at Hotel Giardino or had groups of university students stay here. The location is second to none with Prato Porta al Serraglio train station a 2 minute walk from the doorstop offering a 20 minute train trip to Florence. Prato is a sane alternative to the tourist trodden capital of Tuscany. Hotel Giardino is right... More

This hotel has seen better days. The dated decor did not bother me as much as the "mineral" smell that came from the bathroom. In addition, I asked to change rooms because my room smelled like stale cigarettes, and this change was a big deal for the desk staff who require a note expressly requiring so if you are booking...
