Reviewed December 10, 2012

Arriving at 1930h on a Sunday evening, I was suprised that the restaurant was closed. Had to grab some slices of pizza in the nearby shopping mall which was like a ghost town. I was told that most of the shops had closed due to lack of business, after the hyper market had opened. The room was noisy and one could hear guests checking in late in the night. The room was otherwise comfortable. Despite being on only the fourth floor there was no pressure in the shower head, which has also needs to be changed.
The buffet breakfast had a limited offering and this was the worst breakfast I had during my ten days in Italy. Except for the proximity to the train station, there is no excuse to stay here.

I would recommend this hotel, if the price is right.

The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the train station. However, I was forced to walk on the road in a couple of places. The front desk attendants spoke fluent English. The hotel provides free Internet. I found the breakfast to be OK and the restaurant staff somewhat lacking in
customer focus.

these is a glass door to the bathroom, you even cannot lock it, there is an opening between this door and wall about 3-4 inches(10 sm), so you can enjoy(?) the view and smell of the person using shower or toilet!

The hotel is situated a couple of km out of town and twenty minute walk from the train station - a taxi to the centre of town or the port is about 20 Euro. The hotel is right next store to a fairly good shopping centre. The room was good and the bathroom had a bath. The staff were courteous and professional. The breakfast was pretty good. We would certainly stay there again for a one night stopover although something more central would be preferable although for that price for quality ratio it would be hard to beat

A website said the location of the hotel was less than a km from the train station. This may be the case but it was a route I would not walk with my 12 year old son. We stopped in Livorno for one night to catch the ferry to Corsica, and chose this hotel because it was supposedly close to the train station -- after settling in we planned to go to Pisa and being close to the train station cuts down on taxis. The room was lovely - very fresh style, new finishes. The bathroom was beautiful but the shower door leaked like crazy. The breakfast is ok - lots of breads to choose from but not great on the selection of proteins. The staff were friendly -- would stay here again.

We spent one night here having arrived on the ferry and before travelling onward by train the next day. Internally, the hotel was clean and comfortable - no complaints, however the location was a downside for us. Perhaps we should have researched it more thoroughly but the website claims it is 'a few minutes from the train station'. This is true if you are in a car, but on foot it is a brisk 10-15 minute walk along a main road. The hotel is part of an out-of-town shopping complex, with no restaurant facilities in the vicinity. Fortunately we discovered a great little local pizzeria around 20 minutes walk away, just past the station - Pizza e Torta- unassuming from the outside but great, cheap pizzas. We didn't breakfast at the hotel. Overall, a good hotel if you have a car and are in Livorno as a stopover, but on foot we wouldn't recommend it.

A modern hotel but off the beaten track. Cost of 25 eoro from the ferry port. It is out of town. We were dissappointed with the service in the restaurant. The description of meals on the menu was not what arrived on the table. Breakfast was disasterous as, at 09.00, there was nothing left except croissants and toast. The cook had gone home and no more hot food would be provided. There was still one hour before breakfast finished.
