Residences Mannasei provides spacious rooms with basic cooking and bathroom facilities in the center of Prato. The location is fantastic, and - recognizing that this is a set of small apartments and **not a hotel** - the customer service from the reception (not always manned) was excellent. The room itself was large but basic - king size bed, minimal kitchenette (sufficient to use for 1-2 people for a short time) that also houses the wardrobe. Bathroom functional although our shower head didnt provide great spray. The room could be improved with a proper sofa (versus a wicker double seat that really wasnt comfrotable enough for any length of time - so its either sit at the table, or lay on the bed) especially for guests staying more than a night. The apartments apparently have a roof garden that me didn't visit and access to a washing machine. Residences Mannasei also have a few parking spaces in a private garage located nearby. If you need one, its probably worth calling ahead.…
I spent a pleasant two months at the Résidence Manassei in the spring of this year during an internship in Prato. Chiara and Giulio were always friendly and helpful and my studio room, which gave onto an inner courtyard, was comfortable and calm. The central location in the city's pedestrian district means that most of the city's sites and amenities are within easy walking distance. I would recommend it to visitors for short or extended stays.
Fabulous location in the centre of the old walled city of Prato. Manassei is romantic, historic, atmospheric. Wonderful friendly staff and lovely well appointed apartments in a beautiful historic building. I've stayed twice in the last two years and love it. A short train trip to Florence makes everything perfect.
I spent 4 nights on my own here, and I can only confirm what previous travellers already stated: excellent self-catering solution, wi-fi working good, trains station and buses around the corner offering hassle-free connections to Florence, Lucca, Pistoia etc. Good value for your money and Giulio is very helpful !! Prato itself is worth a visit !
The apartment we stayed in had a spacious bedroom. The kitchen/living area was not huge but had everything you needed. There are a number of food shops nearby if you wish to self cater. Eating out is relatively inexpensive and there are plenty of places nearby. There is some noise from the street as via di Manassei is a main thoroughfare, although mainly foot traffic. There is a bar below that can be noisy into the wee hours on Friday nights. The other nights we were there the noise level was okay. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
