We and a number of other supporters, booked for a single night stay to watch a rugby match (I Cavaliere Prato vs London Irish in the Amlin Cup) and the hotel was ideal. Quite smart, very clean - rooms and facilities good, close enough to encourage many of us to take a walk around Prato town) and really good breakfast buffet (unlike the Florence hotel we'd just stayed at!). Would recommend it BUT suggest to any other travelling supporters, that they organise mini-buses to take them to the stadium which is quite some distance out of town..

Very clean, modern and comfortable when you finally get in there. Expedia should inform customers that the reception desk is normally only manned for about 6 hrs on weekdays (I think from 9.00 to 12.00 and from 15.00 to 1800) and not at all at weekends. Phone numbers are provided for visitors who arrive at other times and/or to inform of estimated times of arrival. This is quite clearly labelled on the entrance gate. Otherwise, entry is impossible. The speed of response to our call on arrival on a Saturday afternoon was very quick (10 mins) and courteous - so no complaints there!
The other comment is that, being in the centre of an old town, access by car is via a network of very narrow one way streets that really ought to be completely pedestrianised. Easy to find on foot, but a nightmare by car without expert local knowledge - but, again, the staff stepped up to the mark and accompanied me in driving to the hotel from a more major street nearby. The hotel also provides a free parking permit so you can leave your car in the narrow street right outside the hotel.
Probably less hassle to come by train - the station is only 5 mins walk away!

The staff were most helpful, providing advice on where to hire bikes and always going that extra mile to make sure I had what I needed. They were very responsive and friendly. The location in the middle of the historical centre was sensational, waking up to the church bells and stepping out immediately onto the busy pedestrian street I couldn't have been happier.
