I stayed at this hotel for a week on business in early July. The hotel has a feel of being fairly traditional but with some updates. The bathrooms for example looked fairly new and well-kept. The bed was comfortable and the room (on the 3rd floor) fairly quiet - although I could hear other guests in other rooms. Livorno is...

The air conditioning is joy working (end of April), but yoi cant open the windows either as the street is very noisy. Roons are badly isolated, you hear neighbours walking in the room upstairs and going to the bathroom. Hotel is old but that you can still tolerate. The bathroom is refurbished and the beds are ok. Definately ovepriced.

This was my third visit to this hotel. Think that says enough. Parking can be a little difficult because it is busy in front of the hotel, but till now I have managed. Mention at the reception you are with a car, you'll need a paper from the hotel to put in the car, otherwise you get a fine. I...

We stayed 1 might in this hotel which is on the front overlooking the harbour and main road. Double room was a bit cramped but OK for 1 night. Quite quaint. Period furniture. Bathroom satisfactory. We returned to the hotel at 10pm and popped into the bar for a drink. The barmaid made it clear that she was about to...

This hotel seems more antique than what you get the feeling of new and trendy. But everything is very clean, and the decor fits in perfectly. Very good service, with friendly staff, that is very adequate in English. Food is great as well. Good view of the port, but with some traffic in front of you. Nice balcony to sit...

We booked for it's location mainly and were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Our room was in the new wing and at first we were disappointed as we were hoping for a view but think this was a quieter option. It was very clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent and breakfast was more than...

The room, the staff, the food, the location were all perfect! Couldn't have asked for a better hotel. We also had a great view. We would cross the bridge and drink cheap beers at the local bars at night.

We stayed at the Gran Duca on two separate occasions. For both stays our rooms were comfortable with nice bathrooms. Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff. Elevator available! Close to waterfront restaurants and Corsica ferry. Overall, great experience.
