“Perfecto!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

We 3 middle aged females spent 6 days at the Hotel Mediterraneo in Montecatini Terme. This hotel is not like any in America, so at first we were dubious. It is an older hotel with furnishings that would be described as dated. But, it was very clean, and we felt very, very safe. The hotel offers single rooms at 1/2 the price of double rooms. It made it nice that the snorers could snore away without bothering anyone and it was nice we didn't have to wait our turn for showers, hairdryers, bathroom use. The hotel is situated close to town with a beautiful park outside the door. We didn't select the full meal option, just continental breakfast daily. The breakfast is served on a terrace at the edge of the park , a beautiful way to start the day. The most amazing part of the stay is the staff. They were wonderful and did everything they could to assist us. I would highly recommend this hotel to all people of all ages. Like I stated above, it was very different than what we are used to in major American cities, but by the end of our stay, we didn't want to leave.
We used ComeandseeItaly.com and booked day trips to Florence, Cinque Terre, Vinci winery. Our tour guide was Tania and she spoke excellent english and was very friendly and fun. We also booked a 4 hour cooking class where we went to a farm house and learned to make pasta, 3 types of sauces and tiramisu. We all then ate together at a table with the cook and her husband. One day we arranged for a free shuttle to Grotta Giusti, where we sat in actual grotto named after Dante's inferno, then chilled in the thermal pool. It was an awesome experience. All in all, it was a marvelous trip to Tuscany and because it was August, we spent most of our time under the Tuscan sun which was intense at 92 degrees farenheit. Thank goodness our hotel rooms were air conditioned. For some reason Montecatini does not attract too many American visitors but they assured us they all love America and treated us like royalty. We felt like we experienced the real Tuscany, we struggled a little with communicating but as long as you attempt to learn some Italian words and phrases, people would attempt to help. If not, someone who spoke english would come and help us. We had lots of fun exchanging words and phrases, it added to the experience. Never, for one moment did we feel nervous or unsafe. One thing I hadn't seen mentioned before, is that in the small towns, no one takes credit cards, but there are ATM machines everywhere.
The Hotel Mediterraneo provided transport service (just the 3 of us) between the hotel and Pisa airport. We never needed a car, but other guests did have car rentals. The hotel had wifi available for a fee.
This is the first time I'm writing a review like this. I feel so satisfied with our experience and I want to share it with others.

We had a great time at hotel Mediterraneo. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Hotspots like Firenze, Lucca, Viareggio etc. are near by. The food is delicious. Breakfast is simple but good. Diner exists out of three courses and is also very good. The rooms are very clean. They look a little old but that was not a problem for us.

It's a perfect hotel. We enjoyed staying there for a week.

We stayed here in the last week of september and we enjoyed it very much. Staff, food, stay were excellent. Little problem in parking car, but receptionist solved this. Next time we book the superior room, when visiting Montecatini"s golfclub.

It was an excellent stay for four nights of our holyday in Toscane, before we where going to Umbrië. Montecatini Terme is a central place from where of you can visit al the other interesting places in the surrounding. Montecatini Terme and Montecatini Alto are also interesting. The staf and personal of the hotel are very kind and friendly. The restaurant is very good. The room and bathroom are nice and have a good size. Also the beds are very good. Furtherone is there a very nice swimmingpool by Hotel Astoria, just five minutes walking from the hotel trough a beautiful park, what guests may use. Also a nice center is very close by the hotel. You can have a nice sit in the garden of the hotel and the wine is also very good. Its romantic to be in the garden and the hotel. Also the breakfast in the garden was perfect. And that all for a very good price!
Its was great and our thanks to the staf and personal.
Kind regards from Jacob and Gerie (Holland).

We stayed 5 nights in this lovely hotel. Every morning the breakfast was served at the garden-terrace. The dinner was also excellent. There are three different and always very tasty courses. The desserts (fruit and cakes) were wonderful!

The hotel is very clean and quiet. The staff and servants are very friendly and helpful.

We would like to recommend hotel Mediterraneo without hesitation to everybody! You will never regret your stay!!
