“Warm welcome from owner at this good value small hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The hotel is a convenient 5 minute walk from Montecatini Terme station, and 10 minutes from the town centre. Rooms are a good size, comfortable, air-conditioned and spotlessly clean. The owner Vincenzo is welcoming and helpful and the price (around €70 for a double room) very reasonable. Restaurant opening hours are limited - one sitting; early evening - so we did not manage to try it. Cafe across the road does sandwiches and light meals.

We choose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, price, availability and location in Tuscany which is just a 40 minute ride by train from Florence. We took the train from Siena with a transfer of trains in Florence then onto Montecatin Terme. Is was really an easy trip and the location of this hotel was an easy 2 minute walk from the station. This location gave a good feel for the country side of Tuscany as well as served as a great base to visit Florence and the surrounding area such as Montecatini Alto with great views. The service was fantastic; Vincencenzo and wife were very helpful and courteous. They also provided us four adults with great places to eat and always provided a good morning meal for us. Montecatini is a great location and we also enjoyed the small town feel of the location very much. All the people were very friendly. We recommend for those who want value, great service and a place located out of the big cities in the center of beautiful country. We felt very comfortable at this location. The staff were very helpful and nice, the rooms quiet and clean. Thank you Vincencenzo for treating us like family.
Best regards
Harry Sinsheimer

Visited the La Riviera while in Tuscany to see Florence. The hotel is 5 mins walk from the station and much better value, and quieter, than staying in Florence. Train takes c.1 hour into Florence and cost 10.40 Euros return.
The hotel was excellent with the owner Vincenzo being very helpful and offering good advise on the local area. The food is exceptional and not to be missed. The evening set meal was great value and Antonella's cooking is a real highlight. Whatever you do try the food. Wine list was short but good and excellent value. Breakfast was equally good, the homemade biscuits are irresistable and they did eggs on request.
Montecatini has interesting spas and a great old funicular railway up the hill to the old town. The parking for the hotel was in a public parking a few hundred metres away and we had no problem getting a space.
Rooms have ac but ones away from the front would be quietest.
This is a good hotel to stay at and worth visiting if you are in the area.

We stayed here for 3 nights in august 2013. Great service and fantastic food (if you love italian food this is the place to go. A lot of italians also stay here. We think for the food and service). The rooms are basic, but real italian and very very clean. The owners are very helpfull and can provide you with usefull information. The hotel doesn't have a swimmingpool, but there are a lot of spa's and swimmingpools in montecatini.

Good, clean, family run hotel, attentive friendly service with good food including dinner each evening.
Being near the rail station we used the hotel as a base to visit all the usual tourist areas, Florence, Lucca, Pisa etc etc.

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.

We stayed here for 4 nights (23/10/12-27/10/12) The hotel is a short walk from all the shops/bars/restaurants in the area! But you would be crazy to eat anywhere else but la riviera! The food is amazing, and there's loads of it, so make sure you have a light lunch :) Vincenzo is a sweetie, he's extremely helpful! Theres loads to do in the surrounding area as well and As you can see from the other reviews its clean, welcoming, comfortable etc. it's a "perfect place to stay" ;)
