Just got back from Montecatini and I am very pleased to say that our stay at Hotel La Riviera was lovely. The owner Vincenzo was very welcoming and attentive and the place had a friendly, cosy atmosphere. Our room was clean tidy and smart, with very plain and neat furnishings. The food was a real treat, typical italien family fare, with good wine and great service. I would say that this would be a good hotel to choose for a romantic weekend away or a fmaily holiday as it is near enough to town facilities for convienience but far away enough to limit traffic and noise. This town is very pretty and has great rail connections if you are visiting the many tourist sights in the north of Italy.

Room Tip: Ask the hosts - they are very helpful :)

I stayed at La Riviera last week and had the most wonderful time. The owners, Vincenzo and Antonella ensured that we had a fantastic stay - nothing was too much trouble. The room was excellent, as was the food. I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience Italian hospitality at its best. It is ideally situated - train station close enough to walk to, just far enough out of the centre of town to ensure peace and quiet but close enough for an after dinner stroll.

I travel a lot and I highly recommend this hotel. The owner, Vincenzo, helped us with so many things: train schedules, day trip recommendations, local restaurants and sights, fabulous cappuccino, and all with a wonderful disposition. The rooms were clean, spacious, air conditioned and a reasonable price. Our room had a balcony with a little table on it. The front balcony is relaxing and a good place to hang out and have a drink (there is a little bar in the hotel for the guests). I left my computer and purse out in the room and didn't worry about it (there are safes in the rooms if you need them). You can't go wrong staying here!

All aspects of our (daughter and I) stay were pleasant and enjoyable. Owner/host Vincenzo is the jewel in the crown of the La Riviera. If you Google "Italian Hospitality" you should be directed to a website with a picture of vincenzo along with his biographical information.
The rooms were clean and nicely appointed. Beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom was clean and spacious. There was a safe in the room.
The common areas were clean, comfortable and spacious. A continental breakfast is provided. It was a real treat and pleasure to sit out on the patio in the morning for expresso prepared and served by Vincenzo. He was an invaluable soruce of infromation for planning our days.
I would recommend the La Riviera even to the most hard-to-please friends and family.

On arriving at the hotel we were welcomed by Vincenzo, (owner) who was welcoming and is certainly a character. Situated 5 minutes walk from the Bus & Train station & 10 minutes walk from the main shopping area of Montecatini, which has numerous restaurants, bars and shopping for everyones tastes. The hotel is also ideally located for visits to Siena, Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano, Vinci, and may more places of interest.

I was one of a party of around 19 people who where staying at the hotel and the service was very good. Vincenzo was always on hand to proved information regarding regional events, and places of interest. The food was varied and excellent; the rooms were cleanly appointed with up to date washroom facilities, tv, safe (located within the wardrobe) and a balcony.
Although the hotel is a 3 star establishment, but I would rate the service and comfort during my stay as 4 stars.

La Riviera is a lovely, charming and unassuming hotel that is spotlessly clean. The service from Vincenzo and his family was outstanding - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was typical continental and dinner in the evenings demonstrated Antonella's skill as an excellent Italian cook. It's the second time we have stayed at the hotel, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to our friends. It's a great base to visit Pisa, Florence, and Lucca (it's only a short walk to the railway station) and as we had a hire care, we even went down to Chianti country, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Volterra and Siena, and all within one week. We look forward to seeing Vincenzo's sunny smile again soon.
