“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011 via mobile

We looked on the Internet and could see there were rooms available so as we were passing we dropped in to ask for a room for the night. The receptionist was busy chatting to a man there who was smoking and obviously didn't want interrupting and told us they were fully booked?! It was a quiet Sunday in Livorno and all the Internet sites showed vacancies so make your own mind up.
Somebody did comment that Livorno was a dump, it isn't and has good shopping, an excellent market and wonderful restaurants + lots to see, so don't be put off.

We booked the hotel for one night because we were looking for a secure parking so we could leave the luggage in the car.

On arrival we learned that the reservation of the parking lot via internet didn't work, however, the receptionist did make some effort to give us the "last" free parking lot. Our Audi A6 Avant did just about fit into the garage (bigger cars would certainly not fit in). However, once you are in, it's a single garage, that can be locked, i.e. secure.

Our room was towards the main road, which was very loud so we did not open the windows. The room had A/C which worked not very well, if not to say, next to nothing. However, the bed linen and the shower were reasonably clean. The interior is run down, so is the hotel lobby. When you enter the lobby, the tobacco smell is unpleasant.

If you have to catch a 8:00o'clock ferry you will not have enough time to have breakfast, since breakfast is from about 6:30.

Livorno itself is a dump. Next time we would take a night-ferry.

Slept there before embarking on a ferry. The hotel is old, dark, expensive. If you have to sleep there just do not choose the room from the street side. The windows are old and all the noise (this is on eof Livorno main alleys) will not let you sleep. My advice - take a night ferry and avoid it.

We arrived late at night after a hectic time getting there, to find that the room we had booked was not the one they were going to give us. Instead they took us across the street into another building (an apartment building, not a hotel) and presented our room to us in there. It was all very strange and indeed I still do not fully understand what happened. The room itself had the heat on full blast and it was like a sauna. It never really cooled down even after we turned it off. We were traveling with a one year old and so a hot room wasn't the best situation for her. The bathroom was scary - old, noisy, musty. Thankfully were were only there for a few hours to sleep before catching our ferry early the next morning.

This hotel is in the middle of Via Grande, one of the busiest street in Livorno, where you are able to find good pizzerias and you will also be within walking distance to the harbour and the main attractions, which ain't much in this laid back town.

The rooms are basic but sizeable for its price and the staff are friendly. There is also wifi access in the rooms.

The only downside is the lack of english channels on TV and the relatively bleak breakfast.

Will consider staying here again if I return.
