The space

Residence Manassei is a palace dated 1200, which has been completely and tastefully restored.
The Residence is perfectly located in a charming and lively pedestrian area in the heart of the historical center of Prato, at two steps from the Duomo and among shops, food, cinemas, theatres, restaurants, etc.something that only a city centre can offer.
Residence Manassei offers 11 tastefully and completely furnished mini apartments, which can accommodate small groups or single clients. Each room is equipped with fully furnished and thoroughly equipped kitchen corner;
double bedroom with led TV, free wi-fi, and telephone; a/c and heating, bathroom with shower and hairdryer. The rooms are located on three floors, all reachable by lift. On the upper floor a beautiful roof garden waits our guests which can have a drink or relax enjoying an
enchanting view of Prato with its old characteristic roofs.
Residence Manassei is mostly the really good alternative to Florence, as you can lodge at cheaper prices but visit it in a twenty minutes trip by train. Moreover it is reachable by car, as we offer our clients a car permit which allow them to get in the pedestrian area and park right in the adjacent streets, without any fee (electronic doors are active so we need car registration plate to issue the car permit). Alternatively we have our indoor garage at Euro 10,00 daily.
It is also easily reachable by train, as the train station (Prato Porta al Serraglio) is located at 5 minutes walking.

Guest access

The reception is open from Mon to Fri 9.30-3.30pm. All arrivals out of the above mentioned hours and during the weekend and holidays are organised with a self check-in procedure. In case of need we can take an appointment, being advised in advance.

Interaction with guests

We are at complete disposal of the clients during the reception hours for all their needs. During our absence there are telephone numbers that they can call 24h.

The neighborhood

The central location allows our clients to enjoy all comforts that only a city centre can offer: main museums, monuments and churches are all within 5 minutes walking distance. Moreover shops, cinemas, restaurants, pizzeria and a lot more are all around the Residence: just go out and enjoy!

Getting around

The train Station Prato Porta al Serraglio is only 5 minutes walking distance: it reaches all the main train stations of the near art cities of Tuscany, first of all Florence but also Lucca, Siena, and so on.
Public bus are running all around the city to reach the further museums such as Museo Pecci of Contemporary Art, and Museo di Scienze Planetarie.
Otherwise you can enjoy the beautiful countryside with some organised tour, or with your own car.

Other things to note

Once you are in the apartment, you can get the main information reading the brochure that you find inside: all useful numbers, emergency numbers, reception hours, incoming and outgoing calls, wi-fi connection, use of the washing machine, separated waste collections instructions, check-out instructions. All missing in the brochure can be asked directly to us by telephone, email, sms, .

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Check in time is 12PM (noon) - 9PM

This is a self catering structure, so clients are totally indipendent from us regardless recetpion hours, but a camera registers all guests entering from the main entrance and the reception: if you have guests your are invited to let us know, as we have to register them and to apply a supplement in case they share your apartment.
Please do not smoke in the apartments. Small pets are allowed, but all eventual damages will be refunded from you directly before the departure.
The roof garden is always open to all the guests: please go there anytime but leave it proper as you find it.
The respect of other guests is very important: please be as silent as possible all the time, but mostly in the late evening/night, as other guests lodge here for working reason, so they need to rest.
The washing machine is always available for free (please provide detergent), but it is not an industrial one, so please take care of using it once a day possibly.
There is a little room which contains all bins for the garbage: we do the separated collections, so please follow the instructions that you find in the brochure which is in all the rooms.

La nostra esperienza presso il Residence Manassei è stata del tutto positiva! La comunicazione con Chiara è stata perfetta e al nostro arrivo Giulio è stato molto professionale, ma soprattutto simpatico e gentilissimo! Il mini appartamento è spazioso, accogliente e completo di tutto quel che necessita una breve visita, compresa la connessione wi-fi e la tv. Purtroppo abbiamo potuto sfruttare poco la bellissima terrazza panoramica situata al terzo piano dello stabile, il cui accesso è libero per i clienti del Residence. Ma a questo rimedieremo la prossima volta che verremo a Prato! La famiglia dei nobili Manassei viveva proprio nella via in cui il Residence si trova, situata nel cuore del centro storico della città di Prato, che alla nostra prima esperienza ci è sembrato vivace e accogliente, pieno di locali e ricco di eventi culturali - noi eravamo lì proprio per un concerto!

De kamer was groot en schoon. In de kamer was een kitchenette. Er waren voldoende borden, bestek, glazen en pannen. Het aanrecht was erg klein. Aan één kant een gootsteen en aan de andere kant een evengrote ruimte met daarin echter een kookplaat. Deze was defect en daar bovenop stond een andere kookplaat die ook niet naar behoren functioneerde. Er was geen ruimte om je eten klaar te maken en daardoor kon je er eigenlijk niet koken. Wel kon je water koken voor thee of koffie. Verder een prettig appartementencomplex met mooi dakterras. Wij hadden hier echter voor gekozen omdat we zelf wilden koken en dat kon dus niet goed.

Ciao a tutti sono Chiara gestisco il Residence Manassei per conto della proprietaria Elena dal 2004. Ormai è diventata un pò come la mia seconda casa. Quando sono al residence ho piacere di incontrare le persone che ospitiamo e chiacchierare con loro prendendomene cura per le loro necessità o solo conoscerle e scambiare idee e opinioni.
