Hotel San Marco is within an easy walk of the cathedral and surrounding areas, and is also close to the train station. The facilities and standard of the hotel are definitely up to the three-star rating, if not beyond. So the hotel is convenient if you're staying in Prato, and would probably also make a good base if you're exploring the area.
On arrival we were greeted by the friendly and very helpful front desk staff. We had a car, and were quickly offered a place right in front of the hotel (the hotel staff seem to park their cars there to "block" those spots, they move their car so you can park yours there). We were also given a parking voucher avoiding the need to pay for street parking.
The room was quite large, simply furnished, but with everything you'd need. The air conditioning was working well - something we appreciated as it was a very hot day. Sleep quality is fine. The bathroom, although perfectly fine, was a little old and probably in need of renovation soon. Everything was clean. Our room overlooked the Piazza San Marco with its Henry Moore sculpture (Large Square Form with Cut).
Breakfast is taken in the downstairs restaurant, and was a surprisingly complete buffet with a good selection of items available.
The helpful front desk staff gave us a a very good recommendation for dinner in the old town.
A good value hotel in you're in or near Prato.
