Noisy location on main shopping street. Air conditioning available but not effective .Breakfast is basic whilst dinners are average with deserts consisting of a variety of cake.
The staff, including the management, are helpful and friendly.

Too often when checking out an hotel I come across reviews which are negative and mean-spirited. Such was the case when consulting the majority of these before my trip to Montecatini. Yet again, I found that the only way to judge is on personal experience.For a three-star hotel Ambrosiano represents good value for money.
I agree that the hotel would benefit from a facelift but the most important aspects that a traveller looks for were in place.the rooms weren't large but were completely adequate and who spends much time in the hotel room when on holiday? The standard of cleanliness was exceptionally high: bedlinen and towels were expertly laundered and regularly changed. Food was generally good and in plentiful supply; the salad buffets were very impressive and on one evening a candle-lit dinner was served and entertainment provided.
Every member of the hotel staff , from the owners to the chambermaids and the entire restaurant team was helpful and superbly efficient
I agree that some people might have found that the late evenings could be noisy but, after all, the hotel is on the main street and Montecatini is a lively and busy town.
If you're looking for a value for money holiday there is much to recommend this hotel. If you want more then I'm afraid you'll have to dig deeper in your pockets.

After reading earlier reviews on the AMBROSIANO we were considering eating dinner elsewhere, even though we had paid for half-board.However,we found the food never less than acceptable and on most days it was very good.
Thebed rooms were clean and tidy and ,although some of the furniture was a little past its best, nice and bright.
It could be a little noisy at night, but we did have the advantage of being in the centre of the town.
The staff were friendly and hardworking.
Overall good value for a 3 star hotel in the middle of Tuscany.

The hotel is modestly equipped. All rooms have en-suite facilities but they are generally small. Our shower cubicle was small enough that you banged your elbows on it when trying to wash and couldn't pick the soap up if you dropped it! The towels were like giant tea-towels - really thin and not enough to dry you properly.
It is advertised as Air Conditioned but the units were too small for the size of the room meaning you had to leave it on all day to make sleeping bearable. The stair well has a glazed roof turning it into a greenhouse and encouraging the upper floors to roast in the summer heat. Most communal areas were inadequately air conditioned.
The pool is in the dining room - which is a bit odd - luckily they close the pool before serving dinner. The pool was also freezing - some people found this welcoming in the 34 degree heat but even then you had to keep moving at all times to prevent your muscles seizing up.
The food was mediocre - a bit like school dinners. Breakfast wasn't great either - a choice of corn flakes or muesli and a selection of meat and cheese. Considering this is Italy - the coffee was abysmal and beyond unacceptable.
You have to pay a deposit to release the remote control for the television.
The bar was very expensive and appeared to be opened at the whim of the owners. There are plenty of good local bars outside to make up for this.
On the limited plus side, the rooms were clean and linen changed daily. The hotel is also very central with easy access to the spas and sites of the town.

There are only two good things about this hotel: the location and the staff. The hotel is on a main street, so is convenient for shopping and getting to the train station. However, my room faced the main street so I heard a lot of street noise at night. Rooms at the back may be quieter.

The biggest problem for me was that the room was dark and depresssing and the bathroom so small. The shower was minuscule and there was no way to shower without getting water on the floor. And guess what? No bath mat. I had to use one of the thin cotton towels to wipe up the water and then leave it on the floor to avoid a fall.

I think there are much nicer hotels in the neighborhood.
