Reviewed 5 July 2017

Very pleasant hotel with friendly welcoming staff at reception. Evening meal in restaurant very nice and adequate breakfast. Location makes a car essential and entrance laneway off the square is a bit tricky to find - even with GPS. Parking available but would be limited when hotel is full. Large bedroom and bathroom, comfortable and clean, and a lift is always a plus.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled as a couple

2 night stay, seemed like 2 weeks ! Don't be fooled by the address of Livorno, this place is on a mountaintop in the town of Montenero. Mountain goats would have a hard time getting there. Almost ran the car into a stone wall on the way up. At check in, we were told dinner and breakfast were included in our reservation...Great ! Next morning, ooops, mistake by desk clerk, here's your bill for dinner. When we questioned it, we were told we're not welcome in their dining room tonight. We went without dinner. Finally, they advertise free wifi throughout the hotel. We are traveling in Italy for 2 months and needed wifi desperately. After my wife tried asking for help repeatedly for over 2 hours, we finally quit in in frustration.
Oh yeah, they advertise a panoramic view of the Mediterranean. They have that view.....amidst filth. Dirt stuck to our feet in the hotel room, the shower had mildew everywhere, and the terrace view hadn't been cleaned since the days of the Roman Empire.
This is my first critical review I've written on Trip Advisor. But you need to know.

Room Tip: Don't go there

Dear Mr. Rufrano,
As we have already replied you in booking.com we would like to clarify the situation because, honestly, your feedback sounds unfair, disrespectful for people who work hard here everyday, and not consistent with facts. Also, your comments about the location are exaggerated and excessively ironic; Montenero, then, it's not a town but a district of Livorno (20 mins. by car from the city center, 7 mins. from the sea) in a residential and panoramic area on the hills of Livorno. The parking is not so spacious, you may be right, but it does not depend on us. Then, we admitted our mistake and said we were sorry for it : there was a misunderstanding due to the programm in our pc, so your reservation appeared as Half Board rate while it was not. I would like to remember you that the reservation was "RO= Room Only", so neither breakfast was included. Anyway, it's true that it was our mistake but a guest should be aware of the type of reservation he/she made. It would be really attractive for everyone if the price for room-dinner-breakfast for one night for two people was 75 euros. However, all that we could do once we found out the mistake was telling you that the meals weren't included, as it was the truth. Moreover, our staff did as much as possible to fix this little mistake by applying a discount on the dinner and by offering you breakfast. We didn't mean to make you feel uncomfortable or think you weren't welcome: all the guests are welcome of course, there was probably an incomprehension due to the lenguage and we apologize again for that. Concerning the problem with the wifi access, our staff tried to help you as much as possible making you use our pc for hours. Anyway, we will take advantage of your experience to improve the signal in that room. We appreciate your first comment about the panoramic view but we don't agree with the second one and, fortunately, from the feedbacks of the great majority of our guests we can see that the service we offer is more than appreciated.
Best regards,

This ex-villa is now a hotel in Livorno Hills with magnificent town and water views. The outside garden restaurant is ideally situated at the front of the hotel to take advantage of the lovely view. Stayed in room 304 which was very large and comfortable. The hotel is located in a quiet area providing an opportunity for a peaceful nights sleep. Really enjoyed this lovely old hotel and will return when in that area again.

Stayed: June 2017

The hotel is an older property on the outskirts of Livorno near to a Funicular railway that takes you down to the town busses. The staff are very good -friendly and helpful.
It has older and pleasant rooms that are very clean and furnishings are nice. There is a roof top terrace with good views and surrounded by vegitation from the hills. The main attraction of the property is the quiet location and the excellent restaurant with very personal cooking in their small restaurant for which we give it 10.
.
Ride down the Funicular and wander round the busy (but not special) city of Livorno. Easy to get to PISA and LUCCA.

Room Tip: Dine in the hotel - book a table on arrival.
