Hotel Michelangelo
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Carrara
Reviewed 10 May 2012

This is a wonderful location for a visit to Carrara and surrounds. The hotel is very modern and comfortable in the centre of the old town centre. The staff were all very helpful and welcoming, particularly Claudia. A car here is helpful if you wish to visit the marble mines and the wonderful small towns in the mountains with their characterful restaurants with magnificent views. Local towns such as Bocca di Magra, Sarzana, Pietrasanta, and Marina di Carrara. Ciccio's restaurant must not be missed.

Room Tip: There are rooms with a view on all floors, just ask.

By chance our group of four stumbled across this exquisite small hotel in the centre of the historic marble city of Carrara. It was refreshing to stay in a refurbish hotel featuring modern art works. It was a hotel where the female receptionist & her trainee went out of their way to be of assistance to us with informarion about the city & some of its features. With all new fixtures & fittings there was nothing to complain about. Happy hour was another welcoming touch - eventhough the volume of nibbles provided was a little over the top. I am sure members of our group or family connections will return to Carrara in the future - having a past family connection. Quality, service & price of accommodation with free wifi gains our recommendation.

Room Tip: Check out the bed/s in your inspection - before booking in. Check windows have blockout if wanting a...

A surprise stop in Carrara led me to some last-minute TripAdvisor scrambling. Hotel Michelangelo is well-located in the historic center of Carrara, but you will need a taxi if you're trying to make it there from the train station. Luckily, Sara at reception is very sweet and helpful, more than willing to call a driver at his house at 8pm in order to make sure we got up to our rooms and out of the rain quickly.

The aesthetic in the hotel is very nice, and the overall accommodations are good: large bed, although it's evident that its composed of two attached singles; good TV; and full bathroom amenities. Although I did like the use of leather in the rooms (the headboard, the desk, one whole wall), I could see its pervasive scent bothering some people.

Negatives: Did have a couple of issues with hot water not working, and a couple traveling with me had a less-than-pleasant encounter with a staff member at breakfast.

This hotel is a shrine to the imaginative achievement of contemporary Italian designers.
It's in the center of Carrara, a prosperous town on the Liguria/Tuscany border. Carrara,
with its white mountain of marble behind it, might be considered the ninth wonder of the
world, so awesome and astounding is the spectacle of colossal marble blocks being
mined. Visitors have access to the interior caves of the mountain and its dizzying
exterior heights.

My daughter and I spent one night at the Hotel Michelangelo, a newly renovated 4-star hotel located at the base of the historic centre of Carrara. The hotel is smartly decorated in a modern minimalist design, and is currently displaying modern art work by local artists as part of the Carrara Biennale. Our room was spacious, bright and immaculately clean. The very large bathroom was handsomely decorated with Carrara marble. The breakfast buffet included a large choice of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, and breads. The breakfast room is currently on the floor below the lobby but we were told that it will soon be moved up to the rooftop terrace where one can get a panoramic view of the city centre and a glimpse of the Mediterranean. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is so new that it appears there are still some minor issues to be solved, but all in all it was a very good experience and we would definitely return. Finally, we loved the town of Carrara - a very charming place!
