Montecatini Terme is at heart a grand spa resort, spa in the real sense of the word of taking the "waters". The Grand Hotel & La Pace is clearly not a modern hotel and does not set out to give you that impression. It's charm like its history is based in the past, no glass and concrete to be seen here just very big stateroom type accommodation for dining and lounging and for Italy - some quite large bedrooms. Yes its old fashioned and that's the charm - as seen in many other reviews there are people like Giuliano in reception and Mario who are the friendly faces, but I found all the staff polite. The room I had was comfortable, a balcony was available as a little bonus. Breakfast was a buffet style with an a la carte menu in support, the buffet at the pool was extensive and at diner the menu again was a la carte. The food was excellent, breakfast was a little "samey" but nothing new there. If you are looking for the Ritz or similar do not come here, but if you are looking for some grand surroundings with a charm distinctly of its time and place then you should not be disappointed.
