“Very posh and new”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A website said the location of the hotel was less than a km from the train station. This may be the case but it was a route I would not walk with my 12 year old son. We stopped in Livorno for one night to catch the ferry to Corsica, and chose this hotel because it was supposedly close to the train station -- after settling in we planned to go to Pisa and being close to the train station cuts down on taxis. The room was lovely - very fresh style, new finishes. The bathroom was beautiful but the shower door leaked like crazy. The breakfast is ok - lots of breads to choose from but not great on the selection of proteins. The staff were friendly -- would stay here again.

We spent one night here having arrived on the ferry and before travelling onward by train the next day. Internally, the hotel was clean and comfortable - no complaints, however the location was a downside for us. Perhaps we should have researched it more thoroughly but the website claims it is 'a few minutes from the train station'. This is true if you are in a car, but on foot it is a brisk 10-15 minute walk along a main road. The hotel is part of an out-of-town shopping complex, with no restaurant facilities in the vicinity. Fortunately we discovered a great little local pizzeria around 20 minutes walk away, just past the station - Pizza e Torta- unassuming from the outside but great, cheap pizzas. We didn't breakfast at the hotel. Overall, a good hotel if you have a car and are in Livorno as a stopover, but on foot we wouldn't recommend it.

A modern hotel but off the beaten track. Cost of 25 eoro from the ferry port. It is out of town. We were dissappointed with the service in the restaurant. The description of meals on the menu was not what arrived on the table. Breakfast was disasterous as, at 09.00, there was nothing left except croissants and toast. The cook had gone home and no more hot food would be provided. There was still one hour before breakfast finished.

I stayed one night with my family to catch the morning ferry from Livorno to Sardinia.

The hotel is offsite, next to a half abandoned shopping hall that hosts a terrible pizza fast food place (I wonder how such a place can exist in Italy). Anyway, you need a car to get to the hotel and also to get back to civilization.

What we liked was the spacious room, the free water from the mini bar, free parking in front of the hotel as well as in the underground garage. Breakfast was ok. The price was fair (125 EUR for a room with two double beds).

Internet was free but didn't work. The while hotel smelled a little bit strange and I would get depressed if I needed to stay there for longer than a night.

A hotel a bit in the outskirts of the city but very convenient if you have to catch an early ferry to Corsica: breakfast starts at 6.30 and the staff is efficient and helpful. It takes about 15min to get to the harbor. The hotel is a nice city hotel, nice clean rooms, very comfortable beds...we would definitely go back and recommend to our friends. However, be aware that you DO need a car to get there and back to harbor.

First of all - our GPS said to us that such building number... doesnt exist, but we didnt give up :)
When we finally located the Hotel we, at first, found it modern and nice. Also we were told proudly that minibar is free of charge. Only when we got into the room we realized that that must had been a jeer!! In the fridge - two small cokes & mineral water... Very generous! Further on in our bathroom, shower handle wasnt held properly (falling down), very short shower guard didnt prevent water from falling down to the floor.
B/F finished us up! Cold becon, no eggs, only milk, tea/coffe and cereals!! Our mood was spoiled... that morning I had a birthday, but during check-out nothing was said... It's not a bif deal, but still...
So we've got a not very good overall impression, in spite of all the modern and new building appearance/design/interior.
