We only stayed one night in Montecatini as part of a choir tour. Really i's not fair to comment on the town which I felt was like a 1970 shopping town, not much life and second rate. The hotel was better than the town and fitted the description perfectly. Everything is perfectly clean but slightly dated and slightly shabbby. Brakfast was great. Service was average, the girl on reception who appeared to be the manageress refused to allow drinks to be served until 6pm, even though we arrived at 4.30pm and there was not tea/coffee in the room. When the bar manager arrived at 6.05pm drinks could be served but were only allowed to be put on the room bill - a situation I have never come across. We were booked in individually, but were part of a tour in different hotels. When it came to paying, we had to accept eeverybody's bill - most annoying.
