“OMG local run only 2 star”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Breakfast coffee in a flask/urn in a 5* hotel in Italy??? every 2 star hotel can do better

Had a big black bug in my son's bed and after calling front office they are so arrogant they dont even apologize or offer any compensation

the floor was so dirty by son who is crawling had black legs and cloth

Bathroom is a disgrace, tub is dirty and my wife needed to clean before giving a bath to the son

shower is back full of fungus, towels and sheets are not changed daily

shower is leaking all over the floor because the silicon is dried up and everywhere open gaps


the internet is a joke every day I have to get a voucher from the reception that is printed on recycled paper with other guest information on it (thats how they keep your data and privacy) and for every device you need to get a voucher.. iPhone, IPad, laptop and so on.. after you log in and you close your device or laptop you need to log in again so I ended up to log in like 100's of times... OMG so stone age the speed
Staff is all very arrogant,
BUT the breakfast croissants are the best ever

Room Tip: well better go for a other hotel

Looking at the pictures of the hotel, I was so looking forward to our stay. We arrived a couple of hours before check in, I asked at reception if our room was ready, he said it was. But would not let us in unless we paid extra. All the staff were unhelpful, breakfast wasn't good, the staff there were incredibly rude, it was laughable . The hotel garden was nothing like the photos, I really don't understand why it has 5 stars. The only posative thing . The room was quite nice, and good toiletries, that's about it.

This hotel is the best situated in Livorno. You have a beautiful sight over the sea. The staff is friendly and serviceminded. The cleaning and changing of towels is perfect.
I stayed in one of the topfloor rooms with a private terrace and it was wonderful with a perfect wiew over the sea.
I can recommend the top floor restaurant. I had dinner there twice and both the service and the food was excellent.
I will certainly come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms on the 5. floor with a seawiew and spoil yourself.

Just returned, spent 8 nights at this hotel. Livorno itself a bit quiet but good base to travel to Pisa, Florence etc from local train station. Beaches not up to much and very expensive to spend the day, ie 5 euros to enter plus 8 euros each for deckchair and umbrella, at 21 euros each per day we opted out and used the pool garden on the roof of the hotel instead. I'm sure if they reduced the drink prices there it would prove more profitable in the long term.
The hotel lives up to its previous reviews, our room on the second floor was huge with wonderful high ceilings. A truely magnificent building. A special mention to the very hard working and polite staff who served breakfast and our maid, these people are often forgotton but are so important in enhancing the reputation of the hotel. Also a big thank you to Frederica on reception who went out of her way to make our stay that bit more special. Thank you.

Room Tip: We intended to upgrade to a sea view but preferred our more spacious garden view room on the second...

This hotel was a complete joy. It's spectacular-looking and the staff was outstanding. They simply could not do enough to make sure that we had a wonderful stay. As others have said, it is a surprise to find this comfortable, elegant place in such a workaday city.
The pool with glass sides is a knockout. The hotel would make a wonderful base for exploring the area. And oh, by the way, dinner on the roof with water views and the lighted glass pool was memorable. Order the octopus starter! They serve a lovely breakfast, which is included.

We booked our flight and hotel through Expedia a found this hotel to be beautiful and elegant! With 4 nights we got the 5th night free. It was a good central location to go to Pisa, Lucca, Cinque Terre and the Marble Mines. Great water views, fun place to walk, delicious restaurants, pastry shop and hotel breakfast buffet was exceptional with anything that you might desire. We loved a restaurant a few blocks away called Vizu Virtu. Excellent!

After a long flight from Canada with unfortunately a toddler crying the entire way, then a 4 hour drive from Rome what a relief to reach our first destination. Our GPS took us through the main city center and needless to say we were a little concerned. Very busy and very typical of a city of this size. What a surprise to find the hotel on a beautiful seaside street with a more relaxed holiday atmosphere. Check in was easy and the reception spoke enough English for us the get all of the necessary information. Our room was smallish but no more small then any hotel you would have gotten in any metro city in Canada. There is a beautiful waterfront across from the hotel where you would almost think you were in a southern California coast town. Lovers strolling, teenagers hanging out, roller skaters wheeling by and tourists capturing the sunset, had to remind ourselves we were now in Italy. We opted for dinner at the hotel which was definitely in a beautiful setting. Rooftop with an infinitie pool as a neighbor (too cool to use when we were there) we enjoyed our first Italian meal. Great meal, which be prepared to take your time as it is the Italian way to sit and enjoy. Beds were a little to firm for our liking but we found that in every hotel in Italy. The only reason I would give this hotel a 4 instead of a five ( other then the few cosmetic things that I did not see but my very observant spouse noticed on arrival) I unfortunately sliced open my toe on the threshold into the bathroom and we mentioned to the reception that I had totally ruined a towel with the blood we had to mop up they simply replied they would have it fixed. A simple apology would have been nice. If you're looking for a nice stopover between Rome and the north I would recommend this hotel for its location and beautiful sunset.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view
