“Very enjoyable trouble free stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

A very pleasant hotel centrally located to all the spas and the downtown area. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Staff was friendly and maitre d' Giuseppe was a delight. On our first night we enjoyed a multi-course meal for 25 Euro per person which was good value and would recommend it. Breakfast was abundant, varied and delicious. We enjoyed a Happy Hour at the bar with lots of complimentary hors d'oeuvres. In all a very pleasant stay and would return without hesitation. Recommend a side trip to old town accessible via cable car. Beautiful centro with a number of restaurants makes you really feel you are in Italy.

On my first trip to Italy I stayed here for a week and had the best special vacation.
Everybody was friendly and helpful and I immediately felt the Italian hospitality that makes you
feel at home. The accomodations, food, service, location, and atmosphere are excellent.
Hanging out with Roberto at the bar relaxing, laughing, and socializing is the perfect way to end
the day. When I returned on my next trip I was met by Roberto with open arms, a smile, and a
"Special Drink." The best! The hotel underwent renovations and is updated and very comfortable. I am planning my 2013 vacation and this is where I want to be --
feeling the warm Italian hospitality!!

We are staying here as I write (05 October 2012) I think this hotel is very comfortable and, like other reviews, well placed for visits to Pisa, Lucca, Firenze etc.
Great array of food at breakfast, excellent coffee. The tea is ok! Plenty of shopping in the town, even late night but can be very expensive compared to UK designer labels. Many pizza bars & several restaurants. I recommend Simon's Café, just downhill from the hotel, with outside seating for coffees, sandwiches, salads etc quite reasonably priced.
The Basilica is worth a visit despite the austere 1970's architecture!!
The station (use Montecatini Centro it is nearer to the hotel than M. Terme) is 10 minute stroll from hotel.

We went on a 10 trip to Italy and stayed here in the middle 6 nights. Rooms are clean, two twin beds pushed together.- Wasn't the end of the world. Elevator is very small. There is a pool and pool deck with plenty of chairs. Great location. No shower curtain or door, but I think that is pretty typical for the country. We had breakfast every morning, mostly fresh fruit, pastries, breads, juices, yogurt, sliced ham and salami, and eggs. The lounge bar was tended to by Roberto. He is very attentive and has a great memory. Love the Lemoncello Cocktail. The wake up calls were hit and miss. The A/C wasn't what we are used too here in the USA. Overall it was really good.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the opposite side of the kitchen.

My wife and i stayed 25th-28th Sept. We found the hotel to be very clean and all the staff to be very helpful and polite. On the ocassions were i left my wife during the day at the hotel to go and work she found the public lounge areas comfortable and relaxing and found the staff extremely helpful and caring. Unfortunately the weather was mixed so she didn't get chance to use the pool area. We upgraded our room to a Deluxe room which was newly refurbished and comfortable with a decent size double bed, and an en-suite shower room which was clean, rather small but pleasant enough for the 3 nights. We found the dining room very spacious and had breakfast only in the Hotel each morning but this room is ready for a refurbishment as is rather dated. The downside for us was that during our stay the hotel was accomodating some large tour groups from Europe and the US who were mostly around in the evenings but away during the day and it took some of its charm away but we appreciate that 4 star hotels are competing for revenue and they do what they have to to stay ontop. Its biggest draw by far is the staff and their customer service and the newly appointed deluxe rooms.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Deluxerooms or a Junior suite

We've stayed at Francia e Quirinale for 10 years in a row and yes, the hotel is spotless with comfortable bedrooms and delightful communal areas. Yes, it's location is ideal with all that Montecatini has to offer being only a short stroll away but it is the staff that make every stay such a joy. They all make such an effort to make you feel welcome, the service is simply excellent

This hotel is located only a short walk to the town square, and about a 15-minute walk to the Funiculare Station if you want to visit Montecatini Alto.
Nearly all the staff here are absolutely brilliant - the best I encountered in Italy. Only one woman at reception was rude. I had been given internet access while staying there, and she very rudely accused me of abusing the usage. I have no idea why this happened, but it was the only bad incident during a lovely week.
The restaurant food is VERY average and a real letdown for the Tuscany reputation. The service is awesome, which partly makes up for the average food. The breakfast buffet is the poorest I have ever experienced in Italy, particularly the fruit selection. The only hot food available is scrambled eggs!
The restaurant maitre'd and the man on the reception desk are brilliant.
The rooms are okay, not too noisy, but the bathrooms are tiny and ours did not have a shower or a shower curtain over the bath, so water went everywhere (typical of Italy). Many of our travelling companions complained about the hot rooms and poor air-conditioning, but our room was pretty good. When I did turn on the air-con, it didn't seem to work at all, but fortunately it wasn't too hot. I would hate to stay here in the middle of summer.
The pool is great with plenty of room to lie on sun-lounges in a pretty garden area.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the main road, with a proper shower and air-con which works
