Reviewed 14 October 2017 via mobile

this 3 stars hotel is ideally located...10min driving from Livorno harbour,in a charming area where old luxury Italian villas were built...This hotel has been refurbished and the balance between the old villa look and modern style is perfect.
Warm and efficient welcoming, staff talking only in Italian,but very nice and helpfull.
The room and bath room are large, great equipment and confortable bed. free minibar.
Enjoy the restaurant,nice view and for only 35€ you have a complete menu (starter, 1course,desssert,water and coffee)
food is good and service fast and charming.
Breakfast could be better!
anyway a very nice address in the area for an afordable price

A lovely hotel. Very clean! Comfortable rooms and beds.. Staff was charming. Not too near downtown Livorno which only means peace and quiet. I would definetly return. Had a room with a view of the sea. Great breakfast.

Rooms, pool, Mediterranean sunsets in your backyard, free parking, gorgeously redone historical building, fine breaky, perfectly comfortable room and view. Management helpful and smiling. Close to downtown which means plenty of motorbikes buzzing around.

Room Tip: No regrets whatsoever!!!!!

Best location in Livorno as it is directly on the sea with view and beach access. A charming building with stylish design and modern service, no complains on price/benefit. Evenings they offer bar and restaurant, and are helpful to advise on where to go.

Really, we just wanted a hotel to sleep after a day driving and prior to taking the ferry to Sardinia early in the next morning. This hotel proved much better than that. First, this hotel has a (small) parking lot and they close the gate at night, so you can sleep better, even with your belongings in the car. Second, the swimming pool was very refreshing on this hot July day. Third, the situation is unique, directly on the waterfront, without a big road in front. Fourth, the dinner on the terrace with sea sight is fabulous. Fifth, the room a well renovated, with taste and design, and have a classy high ceiling. Fifth, the staff is friendly, family owned, and the son speaks flawless english. We had asked for a third bed for our daughter, which was ready when we arrived. Everything was totally clean (being Swiss, we're quite picky) and functioning (air con, etc.). If you intend to eat in the hotel, do reserve a table with your room or by email, because the restaurant has many external guests as well. It's a 15 minutes drive to the ferry. As we had to be there at 6h30, we couldn't take the breakfast, but they prepared us some bags to take with us. We will recommend this hotel to our friends and likely return if we're in Livorno again.
