The Flora sits just inside the historic center of town, in a quiet street. The rooms on the back have no view but are really silent. I slept there one night and frankly it was one of my best night's sleep in a hotel in a long time. Strange, because the room had a decor unchanged since 1970, about as boring as watching grass grow, and even had linoleum on the bathroom floor. I mean, when did you last stay in a hotel with linoleum flooring ? But it was clean, comfortable and great value for money. Prato suffers from poor hotel quality in its town center and if you want to stay in town, which I recommend, this is about what you get. But if you know this and are not expecting luxury and can accept this outdated charm, then you will enjoy the town and sleep well. Oh, and the breakfast was great too !
