“worst experience!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

it has been an terrible experience, starting from the igiene. Everything was old but mainly dirty and smelling, the bed was disgusting, oily in the head side, even the bathroom with cold-freezing shower, I couldn't wait the following morning just to go out.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

The only thing that i can say excellent is the distance of the hotel to the Empoli train station which about few steps.
Staff who assisted us-not so friendly and zero-english.
Room- we stayed at room No.12 at the second floor. Smells like a century old closet yet spacious, with a view of the plaza and empoli station. Dusty room curtain and bed cover.
NO FREE WI-FI, NO breakfast ( if you want for breakfast, need to pay additional 5 euros/person just for a piece of croissant and a cup of coffee). We paid 4 euros for the same breakfast they offer from the bar outside the hotel. Not worth to pay 69 euros just for the room, and imagine Check-Out time is early as 10 AM.
