Stayed in here with my wife for the night before our ferry boat travel to Sardinia. The hotel is new and the rooms are nice and comfortable. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom big. You just needed to be careful, because the floor became slipery when wet. The only problem with it is the location. We were lucky to have a car, but I think that if you relied in public transportation you would have had a bad time. However, and after finding the hotel, parking was easy and free, just in front of the hotel entrance.
The city of Livorno is just five minutes away and Pisa can be visited in under 30 minutes. There is an almost abandoned Shopping Center next to the hotel, but, just a 5 min away, there is a large supermarket, where you can buy food for your trips. The breakfast could have been better, but it was ok, and started to be served at 6AM. Our Ferry Boat was leaving by 8Am, so we could eat before leaving.
I had a problem with my credit card in the Hotel. Even though my reservation was already paid for, the hotel charged again for it. I only saw it 2 months later, when I received my credit card bill. However, after e-mailing the hotel management, in 3 days all was solved and the hotel transfered the money to my account. Hey, problems happen every time. It is how you handle them that matters. And the hotel did handle this situation very professionally and I have even received an apologies e-mail from the Hotel director. Thanks again for solving this so fast.
All in all, it's a very good place to stay if you have to catch the ferry boat, but it could also serve as a nice place to stay longer if you want to spend sometime exploring nearby locations as Pisa, Lucca (not so near) and Livorno. The prices are competitive and the place is very satisfactory. I recommend it.
