This Hotel is left over from a by gone era of the 1930's. The reception room and sitting areas are very grand. Unfortunately our room was on the 4th floor and not that grand. I believe some of the rooms have been updated, but ours wasnt one of them. Wallpaper was coming away from the ceiling. However the bed was comfortable and the room was adequate.
The stand out for this hotel was the friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was very good and location good.
Monte catini Terme is a lovely town which makes a good base for Florence and Lucca.
