Old, noisy (a wedding place in the facility), minimal and very uncomfortable rooms. The worst breakfasts we ever experienced... Really unbelievable... but the worst part were the employees of the hotel... especially when we dared to complain... never encounter anything similar... We choose it mainly because of the photos of the swimming pool... Well it was closed... for a LONG... More

This is a georgeous hotel, it was the home of Duke Federico Medici about 500 years ago, absolutely magnificient, a great experience...We thought that the staff were a bit distant, except for the older gentleman who was on the desk when we arrived.

Booked here as we wanted to stay inbetween Pisa and Florence and this seemed like a good option for a couple of nights. When you first pull into the grounds, you can't help but think that it's quite a grand place. Huge archway leading to the gardens at the back, massive walls that make it look castle-like. We parked the... More

We stayed in Monsummano on the basis it was fairly equi-distant from both Pisa and Florence and we wanted to visit both. There is nothing to do Monsummano so I am glad we were only using it as a base/place to sleep. The hotel's exterior is castle-esq, and as the review below describes perfectly, a building this size requires a... More

Spent only one night here which was quite enough. The property is beautiful, with restored buildings and a large garden. Very charming from the outside. You quickly realise that it takes a big effort to maintain such a place in good condition therefore the interior is a bit shabby. Wasn't impressed by the room which is closer to a 3... More

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
