This clean, close to the station, small hotel offered us a friendly and relaxed experience in Montecatini. Vincenzo and his wife, Antonella, prepared a wonderful breakfast each day and also provided the option of a 3 course, delicious dinner that we enjoyed on one evening. Montecatini itself is, in parts, is a little 'tired', although a drive up to Montecatini Alto is a must! It was a very convenient place from which to visit Pisa, Lucca and Florence by train, with cheap and reliable trains on a regular basis. We hired a car from Europcar from Montecatini, which would have been cheaper online. This allowed us to visit the Chianti area, Siena and the gorgeous San Gimignano. Overall it was a great value hotel, with wonderful hosts, in a very comfortable, accessible location.
