...like the excellent free wi-fi inside rooms, public spaces and around the pool, the breakfast al fresco, the quiet but central location, the faultlessly friendly and helpful staff. It's a little bit quirky...the public spaces are quite old fashioned but the rooms are neat, clean and functional and mine - like many - had a sunny balcony with rocking recliner (another nice touch). I also paid a bargain price which included the city tax. Snacks, drinks etc were pretty cheap too, Montecatini CENTRO station is just down the road. Very big apperitivi culture in the town so buy a drink and fill ya boots. The town has a couple of hipper bars (a strip of them in fact one with a huge appertivo buffet) along Viale IV Novembre and a couple of DJ bars at Corso Roma/Leoncavallo) so it's not all ageing spa goers!
