We stayed for 5 nights since I was at a scientific conference nearby. The hotel is in an excellent location for the old city of Prato and the train station. There is very limited ouside parking available but we were lucky and found a space. However there is no easy way in from the outside parking and we had to schlepp heavy cases over a pot-holed pavement and up a flight of steps. It has a much of the faded glory about it, seems to have seen better days. It is not a 4 star in my opinion nearer 3. The carpets are shabby and much of the decor is old and worn. Nevertheless the room was large and comfortable. The door didn't lock automatically on closing. No kettle in the room. A/C was very weak. There was a bath with shower but no shower curtain, which seems to be an amazing failing and no shaving mirror. The bulb was blown in the b/room but an engineer came (after 20 minutes) to replace it. Free WiFi worked well. The TV had no English channels. There was a very dangerous dip in the floor outside our room (hidden by carpet) which almost caused my wife and a friend to twist their ankles badly and fall. When we pointed this out to reception, we were told that the problem was known, but that nothing could be done, certainly not in the short term!!! Breakfast was good. In the evenings there was table d'hote menu in the restaurant with good value for 3 (tasty) courses (prima, secundi with side order and desert) for 15 Euro. The staff were all very friendly and helpful without exception, definitely the high point of the hotel. Value was good since we got a very good price deal.
