The hotel was lovely and the staff really friendly. However, we encountered a lot of problems due to being given the wrong information prior to our arrival. "20 mins from Florence" "train and bus easy", etc. It was 30 minute bus ride to the train station at Prato and then a 30 minute train journey to Florence. More importantly, we were not told before we arrived that 15th August was a holiday in Italy and nothing was open and no buses running so we found ourselves stranded with no buses and no food (hotel restaurant was closed) for the whole day. This was a serious situation due to health issues. We also suffered a sleepless night due to the noise. If you have a car and don't mind driving some distance to the main cities then it's a lovely place to stay but not if you are depending on public transport and certainly not on 15th August :-( Make sure you get all the correct relevant information before you book.
