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...

We stayed in this delightful family hotel for 5 nights in mid October. It was very clean, rooms basic but comfortable. The hotel's location was one of the best things about it. Very conveniently situated. The station only a few minutes walk, and its right in the middle of Prato. The very impressive Prato Cathedral is a stone's throw. A... More

This is a lovely friendly family-run hotel in the quiet historic centre of Prato, more with the personal feel of a guesthouse. I was impressed even before leaving Australia - they dealt promptly with my email queries in English and gave helpful advice. I arrived early and got into my room within 15mins. My room was clean, spacious, warm, with... More

Hotel Giardino is a family run hotel in the centre of Prato. It is a 5 minute walk from a smaller train station "Prato Porta al Serraglio" (trains to Florence also stop at this station). The owners themselves work in the Hotel Giardino, they are all very helpful and very nice people and they all have good command in English.... More

The joy of travelling is enhanced by independent family run hotels such as these. The rooms are not large, but they are adequate............(the shower is not suggested for very overweight visitors:-). It is clean, fluffy towels, service with a smile. Breakfast is bounteous with very good coffees made to order. The Hotel is in the middle of the old town... More

Charming little hotel in a great location at the edge of the pedestrian zone in Prato. The room was small but clean. Breakfast was excellent – lots of choices in a beautiful room. The people at the desk were helpful. They directed us to the free street-side parking rather than the pay parking lot. Some street noise that bothered my... More

A Customer review: 'Hotel Giardino is the center's most modern hotel, with good sized rooms for the price and location, quality built-in furniture and large, firm beds. Another plus is the Risaliti family who run it: an extremely friendly bunch who have kept their little hotel in great shape since the 1930s'. Wonderful location, as the Hotel is placed at the corner of Duomo Square (with 12th century Dome - St.Stephen Cathedral with frescoes of Filippo and Filippino Lippi), in the historical center of Prato (with medieval walls and buildings), full of art, museums, historical buildings, shops, as well as fine/traditional Tuscan restaurants. Moreover, it is 5 minutes walk from the Monash Centre and about 3km from the business area of Macrolotto. The city and its surrounding area offer interesting and prestigious artistic itineraries, nature and gastronomy. An ideal base for exploring the Tuscany region. ... more   less
