    Younger staff did not speak English or made no attempt to communicate. More interested to their iPhone unfortunately. They could be more attentive to guests. Perhaps this may only apply to single women travellers.

    The buffet breakfast had more than you could possibly eat. Coffee made to your preference. Wish there had been a dinner option as I was traveling alone and without a car so did not attempt to go out after dark which as 7 pm at this time of year. Which is where restaurants reopen. Bus was very convenient.

    There is parking on site but very tight and not enough parking if hotel is full. Aircon isn't that powerful but it works all the same. Bed a bit hard and uncomfortable for me but not a negative.

    Good breakfast in nice breakfast room that spills out on to verandah. Room was spacious. Beautiful bathroom, very clean. Great location on Viale Italia. Very good value. This building resembles a castle it has beautiful marble throughout even though carpet is a bit tired it's still an elegant hotel. Great plumbing, great pressure in shower.

    Broken wifi that created huge problems for m as I had to spend a few hours on work. It is said in a website that parking is free. We weren't told that it cost 10 euro for the fist night. 10 euros were included in our bills. There is no elevator in a hotel, so you have to carry you bags on your back. But the most horrible thing we deal with are bugs!!! They were bitting us all night long. Awful. I wish booking.com would consider my feedback

    we couldn't have breakfast before going to the ship (7:30, breakfast starts officially at 6:30, the time we needed to be at the port), even though other guests could have some! Disappointing! The room was ok, the bathroom could've been cleaner, but it didn't bother us for one night! The light in the bathroom was dark and to put makeup on, not really useful. The parking is very small and tiny, not so easy to park with a big car! I'm sorry, that I cannot give a better review

    The room smelt of mould, towels were thread bare, window shutters did not close so that street light and noise came into the bedroom all night. For 2 adults, a 4 year old and a baby was very expensive at 180 euro for the quality that was delivered. It could be so much better given the beauty of the building.

    It was about a 30 minute walk into the center of Livorno but we picked the hotel because we wanted to chill out at the beach and we drove into the center the following day when we were leaving to head to our next place on our road trip.

    Lovely property with parking and close to the beach. Classy elegant decor. Lovely breakfast and area to sit outside. Lovely smell of Jasmine flowers everywhere. We were recommended a lovely local authentic Italian restaurant a short walk down the street. Food and atmosphere was lovely and we got to practice our Italian language skills as the spoke very limited English which was a bonus.

    NOTHING (well the TV set could have been bigger, not that I cared).

    Inside and (especially) out Gennarino looks like it just popped out off a fairy tales book. Despite being near the Viale Italia busy road, my room was dead silent, beautiful sleeping. WIFI was good. Sky TV. The room was small but clean, and with a minibar! Great bathroom. Clean. Breakfast was also excellent (very!), so was the staff, all friendly and cheerful. The location is perfect for a summer stay, but also for business (close to the city centre by bus, the stop is in front of the hotel).
