Stayed here for 3 nights with a group for the Mugello Circuit., I decided to accompany my husband on one of his trips to see what it was all about.
The hotel was booked as part of the package but it would not have been my choice of hotel. It is situated just off a motorway so good access to the circuit (about 20 minutes in the car) and thats about all it has going for it. The hotel needs modernising and refurbishing as it is very tired and on first impressions when you drive off the motorway is disbelief you are staying there. Rooms are dated but clean. Bathroom smelt slightly so that you have to leave the plug in the sink to avoid the smell coming into the room. I asked at reception about borrowing an iron to be told they didn’t have any. This was the noisiest hotel I have ever stayed in with doors banging constantly all day and night, even from the basement of the hotel! You definitely need to take your ear plugs.
Breakfast was dire – only hot drink was coffee, you had to ask if you wanted tea. Limited choice of cereals. Loads of rock hard rolls to choose from if you wanted to break your teeth. There were mounds of sweet pastries and cakes on offer which we avoided as they looked like sugar had been ‘glazed’ all over them. Small offerings of cheese and cold meats.
The hotel was positioned in an area with not much on offer for an evening meal. There was only 2 restaurants within walking distance. The restaurant/cafe next door called Marisa we went to on two nights was acceptable as if you wanted to go into the town you would have to drive there. No other shops nearby to purchase cold drinks or water so we bought from the restaurant as well which price wise were ok.
If you want to stay here only do so if you are male, going to the Mugello circuit and don’t mind ‘slumming it’ for a few days!!!
