Giapone Hotel is a good hotel if you are on travel to one of the islands Corsica or Sardinia. Breakfast is served from 6AM, which is great if you need to catch the boat. The rooms are fine and clean. Free parking is possible on the street after 20.00h
Really the worst place where I have been. Bugsbed in my bed. To be avoid, if you stay here and the day after you have red dots on your skin now you know why. The are doing some works and the dust is everywhere.
The "parking" part of the title is misleading in as much as they do have parking underground but at 12 euro per night. Luckily we were outside unloading some bags when another person freed a space pretty close on the public street which is free after 8pm. WE did not sleep well because there was a bar just up the street with very noisy clients and as the hotel has single-glazed windows, it was as if the rowdy guys were just outside our window. Then the street cleaners woke us before 5am. The room was small but clean and it was evident that they had just changed the doors of our room and those nearby as there were traces left on the walls that still needed to be plastered after the door installation so maybe very soon they intend also to change the windows to a better quality. Breakfast was very very basic. It's close to the ferry port but there are better choices for a similar price not much further away as we found out upon our return to Livorno two weeks later.…
Good position on the main boulevard, with bus station in front for all the directions, clean rooms with new bathrooms and air conditioning. Normal breakfast, per total is ok...especially if you want to discover the city.
If you are taking a morning ferry to one of the islands, the hotel has a very good location and an underground garage nearby. As mentioned in other comments, the spots are rather small, which is a no surprise in Italy, but you can still fit in a suv. However, if you’d actually like to sleep, try finding another place. The beds date back to the times when the building was brand new (the 50s maybe?), they are broken, and are closer to a hammock than anything else. If you decide to use them, book a chiropractor appointment at the same time. The windows date back to the same time as the beds, and no, they do not isolate you from the outside noise - there is a busy street right below full of scooters and cars honking, as well as a bar and a restaurant, both open till 1am (or longer) and full of happy customers. It’s important to mention that you actually even want to have the windows open, since the air conditioning is in no better shape than the beds or windows. To sum up: hot, loud and awfully uncomfortable. But surprisingly clean and the staff is friendly ;)…
