We booked this hotel based on TA reviews, and have to say that we're not quite sure what the fuss is about. We were arriving in the evening by ferry in Livorno and so the hotel seemed perfect as it was nearby yet out of the city, and it sounded so nice. As everyone else says, it is quite hard to find, but the setting is great. The hotel itself is a beautiful Tuscan villa, but the interior unfortunately somehow had the air of a Travelodge-type hotel, and was lacking in character. The bedroom was clean, functional and faceless. The bar felt like a being in a youth hostel, it was stark and lacking in atmosphere. Perhaps it is better in the summer months, there weren't many people staying while we were there apart from a few businessmen, and it was too cool to enjoy the terraces. We went into the village square for dinner and plumped for one of the two restaurants open. It was ok, nothing special. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, breakfast was alright but the coffee poor. It's possibly the best choice in the Livorno area, but nothing to write home about.
