We couldn't use the swimming pool of the hotel because of 'technical problems'. We had to go to a thermal pool called grotta giusti at 2 km from the hotel. The water there was too hot and not refreshing. It was very crowdy as well. Swimming was not possible. Without the swimming pool the hotel loses all its attractivity as... More

Located centrally between Pisa and Firenze/Florence, and a short drive away from Lucca and Pistoia, easily to Siena and across the Chianti region, the Residenza del Granduca hotel is in the right place geographically. Monsummano Terme however, sounds much nicer than it actually is. The hotel is a beautifully restored estate. The building is very nice. It has ample parking... More

Nice room, friendly welcome and very nice looking breakfast and dinner @ restaurant. But some remarks, dirty sheet of bed was nog changed but covered with a new sheet, breakfast was the same every morning, when fruit was empty, you couldn't get any new. Primi platta of our dinner was cold and as always it was pasta! So over all... More

Good evening, thank you for your positive comment. Let me clarify: no one has failed to tell you of the supplement to the pool towels. If you ask, let's say you have to pay. No problem, you do not want to pay, do not take them. To check in the lady at the reception desk was responding to a call... More

Nested on the edge of Monsummano terme (endless fields around and just 5min from autostrada), this hotel is what is the Tuscany all about: relax, enjoy and repeat. We've spent 6 days there and it served us as a base point to visit all of the major landmarks in Tuscany (PIsa, Florence, Siena, Cinque Terre, Chianti region ...). There's a... More

This was the WORST of all 6 hotels we stayed in our recent 17-day stay in Italy. Very impersonal. When we arrived, they found it strange that we asked help with our luggage... The swimming pool is EMPTY and CLOSED, the bedrooms we were assigned were kind of WEIRD, although the main double bed was very good to sleep in.... More

Good evening, Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to know that you don’t find the pool open, but, as written in all our pages (internet, brochure), the pool opens in June until September. I am also sorry that you did not understand that the extra for the upgrade is per day, as described at the reception desk. If you... More

Having read the reviews I expected this to be good. The place looks lovely from outside and our standard room was very spacious. It was clean and lovely, the bed was quite comfortable. The taps in the bathroom were installed the other way round which was a bit annoying but we got used to it eventually. The floor in the... More

We lunched here with a large group and really enjoyed the experience. The building has tremendous character, and we took over a well furnished room which overlooks the gardens. We had a superb meal and could not fault anything! The location would make this a good base for exploring Tuscany, but you would need a car.

We arrived at night, so it was quite a trip walking down the long hall with a glass-arc and opening the door of our room with an old key(clack-clack) and closing it from inside with squeaking using the same old key. :) We got last room available on sale and it ended up being double room that made our night-experience...

We stayed at the Residenza del Granduca for 9 nights. The hotel provided exceptional value and an excellent location to base yourself for seeing Tuscany.
