Very Good5 Reviews
1.26km from Zhu Chunping ManiaI visited Prato during an extreme heatwave. I mention it first, because this hotel has the most wonderful and quiet (a rarity!) air conditioning throughout, which made it an oasis of cool in a world of hot. Based here for a couple of days to attend an academic conference, I loved being a short walk away from the river, the city centre and a multitude of fascinating historical locations. As an added bonus there are two nearby supermarkets, which can be visited to top up on snacks should you need to. My room and bathroom were both extremely spacious and well furnished – the (vast) bed simply has to be tried to be believed. I did *not* want to leave it both mornings I was there. I worried, as I was on the ground floor, that exterior or interior noise might have been a problem, but while I occasionally heard other guests in the distance at times I felt like I was the only person there. As a result, I slept blissfully. Breakfast was wonderful, especially as my gracious hosts explained about the providence of nearly every item they served. It is a breakfast prepared with love, to be savoured and lingered over, which I certainly did. The assortment of breads, fresh fruits and wonderful meats were most enjoyable. Enia, the owner herself, was also wonderfully accommodating in providing not only the guided tour of breakfast, but also in advising me on locations to explore across the city and points of interest. It’s the closest I’ve felt to being a visiting family member, than a paying guest, in a very long time. To meet this level of genuine and authentic concern for guests’ experiences while staying in a property was a delight, thank you. I sincerely hope to return...this time *with* my wife. I only wish I could rate this hotel 6/5 for service!!!
