“A beautiful home inside the old walled city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2009

This was a perfect place to stay - quiet, very spacious room and bathroom, central air conditioning, lovely hosts, and fantastic breakfasts. I was in Prato for a conference, and the conference rate' at the recommended hotel was 200 Euro per night. We chose this one based on TripAdvsor ratings, paid 50 Euro per night for 2 people, and congratulated ourselves on this decision for our entire stay! Two minute walk, at most, from the central piazza, less than 5 minutes from the train station. The hosts were so warm and friendly, willing out help us out with all our needs and requests.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in May and loved it. Hosts were fantastic and very hospitable, even when we arrived very very late, well after midnight. Room was great with a big clean bathroom attached. Breakfast was included and included plenty of options including cereals, toast and fresh pastries as well as juice and coffee, and Antonella and her husband frequently asked if everything was ok.
Parking was also included at no charge which was a big relief. Prato itself is a quiet town, a nice break from the frantic pace of Firenze, and this B&B is well located to the train station.

Will definitely stay here again next time!

This is a charming B&B run by Antonella and Mossimo. They were both very helpful and the breakfast was very good. It is ideally situated, being close to the railway station, for day trips to Florence, Lucca etc. It is within walking distance of a good selection of restaurants.

Let me state the positive first - the cleanliness was above reproach. Mossimo was a great help to us - specially when my sons car got towed the next morning, My daughter in law spoke pretty good French, so they were able to communicate. There were 8 of us travelling together. Our room was a little shoebox with two single, very hard beds. No sleep for us. Two of the other rooms had large beds, one room had a huge lovely bathroom. the fourth room smelled like an old toilet - anyone who has travelled in Europe is quite familiar with that smell. The room was nice, but it reeked. Also, we arrived in the dark, and if we hadn't had a GPS, we would still be looking for the place. It's on a dark, small, street with just doors all along the building front and you really have to look for it - the mapquest map has all the street names on it, but just try and find them when you're driving.
Streets aren't as well marked as they are in France.
It took us 3 valuable travel hours just to get my son's car back.
Good thing he had an int'l drivers licence. Prato was pretty
well a disaster for us - the restaurant wasn't good either.

We spent three nights at Borgo al Cornio while my husband attended a meeting at Monash Centre (walking distance). Antonella was absolutely delightful, helpful, and patient with us as our Italian was very limited. Parking for the rental car was just a block away and no extra charge. Our room, "The Poet," #6, was immacculate- a large wardrobe with drawers in the bottom portion, a writing desk and chair, bedside tables and lamps, and valet for hanging clothes. The bath had two sinks and a tub with hand-held shower. Plenty of towels were supplied. There is no air-conditioning, but opening the shutters during the cool evenings is sufficient. When Antonella serviced our room each day, she closed the shutters, keeping the heat of the day out of the room. Breakfast is served each morning from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. in a very pleasant breakfast room. Each morning there were delicious pastries, fruit, jams/jellies, juice, coffee, and the famous Prato biscotti (from Antonio Mattei on Via Ricasoli). A TV room is available adjacent to the breakfast area, but a wall-mounted TV was also in our room. Borgo al Cornio's location is perfect for touring and shopping in the historical city center. The location is also just a couple blocks from the train station where it is very easy to take the train to Firenze for the day. Throughout our 8 days in Tuscany, our very best meal was in Prato- at Baghino (Via dell'Accademia). The food was memorable and the service, warm. We were so impressed with our first meal there, that we dined there the following evening also. As we said goodbye to Antonella, at the end of our three day stay, we felt that we had experienced true Italian hospitality and had made a new friend. Antonella's graciousness makes her guests feel truly welcomed. The bed and breakfast rate, including parking, is a tremendous value. We highly recommend Borgo al Cornio for its charm, value, warmth, location, and attention to detail.

There is just nothing like the Borgo al Cornio! This was my second stay there and it was as fabulous as I had remembered it to be. Antonella and Massimo are warm and fun hosts, the rooms are lovely (I am partial to #3), the breakfasts are delicious and offer something for everyone, and you cannot beat the price. Prato is a thriving small city and the Borgo is exactly where you want a B&B to be situated - a bit off the main street and yet just the right distance from the train station and restaurants. And, because it is easy to tire of the crowds in Florence, Prato - a mere 30 minutes away by train - offers the perfect respite. A gem.

  • Liked — The warm and kind hosts - Antonella and Massimo
  • Disliked — People who think they are in a hotel and don't realize that a B&B does not have soundproofing

We stayed at Borgo Al Cornio for 3 weeks. The owners, Antonella & Massimo, are absolutely lovely people who will go out of their way to ensure everything is as it should be. Both Antonella and Massimo were full of helpful information and often suggested places and sites for us to go, as well as giving us helpful tips to make it easier to get around (eg. trains, buses etc).

The rooms were spotless and the breakfast was the best we had in Italy - fresh fruit, home brewed coffee, pastries and other brekky foods. If there was something you wanted that wasnt available, they would provide it - i saw this first hand when a fellow guest complained his was missing his usual muesli and yogurt... the next day, it was provided at the buffet!

The location is fantastic - right in the centre of Prato and only a 2 min walk from the train station.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Prato!
