I stayed at the Grand Hotel Bastiani for 4 nights while on business in the area.
The location is perfect for strolling inside the walled center of town.
Parking was very easy, just outside the wall. Overnight charge was about 3 euro.

This hotel has the look and vibe of an old "Grand dame" who is still keeping herself in good shape. Everywhere you look it seems that this hotel is "frozen in time". From this persepective, the experience is quite interesting. The gleaming ornate fixtures in the bathroom,,,the klunky switch panel beside the bed,,,,the marble stair case. All still functional and kept very clean and in good shape.

Reception staff was very helpful all the time. Some staff have excellent command of English.

My double room was moderate in size for European standards.
Even though there was quite a bit of dark wood, the other decor was very neutral, so the room didn't seem dark.
Room itself was fairly sound-prood - some street noise as expected
The bed was firm. Linens were of good quality.
The WiFi was OK, however I did have to log-in and log-out for each session. 16 eu for 8 hours, but logging off after each session will stop the timer.
Since it was November, I can't commment on AirCon (or perhaps lack of...not sure)
The room got a bit warm at night,,,even in November. Some street noise through the open window......it is in the city center, so I would suggest bringing ear plugs if you're a light sleeper.

The breakfast was Ok. There was some fresh fruit and yoghurt, but not eggs. The cappucino was excellent. Breakfast is served in a formal dining room, however there is no restaurant on site. (Management told me they are trying to acquire space next door to expand into and make a restaurant)
There are 4 bikes that are free to use.

What I liked:
- Old world charm - it's like going back in time
- Friendly and helpful staff
- Feeling of security
- Cleanliness
- Location, location, location
- The free bikes

To Improve:
- A softer bed option
- Adding an on-site restaurant
- Adding a couple of non-news English TV channels

Conclucsion:
The location, staff and ambience make this hotel a worthwile hotel option for Grosseto.

Room Tip: Choose an upper floor room as it will be more quiet - the rooms facing the city gate will give a mor...

The hotel is just inside the walls of the city centre. it is about 15 minutes walk from the train station. We stayed in Grosseto for one in order the catch the train to Rome. Traffic is resticted insode the walls so there is no parking next to the hotel.
Our room was nice, though a bit small for a 4 star hotel.
The buffet breakfast was the usual for Italian hotels.
The city centre is nice but small.

Nice hotel in the middle of Grosseto's old center, within the old walls. The style of the hotel is quite old and so you can see in the rooms, the bathroom (old faucet!), but everything was clean and the personnel was nice. Breakfast buffet with a good variety of products.

Nice hotel, helpful staff, pleasant. Not fantastic, but no downsides. Very convenient, right inside entry to the old city. Purchase internet by the hour, but reasonable. Grosseto and Bastiani grow on you after a few days.

Stayed there for one night on a business trip. This is one of the best restauration jobs I have seen in Europe. They succeded to preserve the old charm of this tradition hotel and provide all the amenities you would expect for a 4 star hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff ( they even booked me a dinner table at 10 pm ) and great breakfast in a relaxing atmossphere.
