“Lovely location, great staff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

I took a group to this hotel. The location was really wonderful to explore the town, directly down the block from the main basilica and piazza. The staff at this hotel was very nice and helpful, they recommended a wonderful restaurant for us. There are street noises, so ask for an interior room if this would bother you.

Room Tip: Ask for an interior room if street noises bother you.

I stayed here for a week whilst attending a course based around Tuscany.
I would reccomend this as an excellent base to get to Lucca, Pisa and Florence. Just a short walk from the train station.
The breakfast was nice and the lady behind the desk was fantastic and very helpful

Visited Pistoia on the way to Florence (Firenze).
Pistoia is a lovely town with the usual attractions "duomo, battisterie, piazza, town hall etc"
But it seems to be overlooked by tourists and is therefore relatively quiet.
The hotel is family run and friendly.
The rooms are a bit old, but are fine, and there is free wi-fi.
The hotel is in the "restricted traffic area" but as a hotel guest you can drive and park here (inform the hotel of your vehicle licence plate after your arrival)
We found two Michelin restaurants and one Routiards restaurant, so finding good food was not difficult.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back to avoid the noise of the delivery trucks and street cleaners in the morni...

Good location for who wishes to visit Pistoia, just that.
The interiors definitely need a deep renovation both in structures and in fornitures.
To be avoided the street-side rooms where, due to old and thin windows, there is an awful noise since very early morning.
Breakfast is not bad.

This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. If it were 20 euro, I would have figured that it was what you get for little money, but they had the audacity to charge 80 euro. We were desperate or else we would never have stayed. Rooms are dim and dingy. Cigarette burns on the bedside tables. TV was on a rickety table. Noise from the street was surprising for such a small town.

Even the most cheerful person will find this place unbelievably depressing. Avoid this hotel.

Our visit here was most pleasant. Our room was clean and the bathroom had a big shower. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was more than satifactory. The only problem we found was our room was facing the front alley and the noise was disturbing.
