We had a wonderful stay at Hotel La Pia in October. Maria was warm, hospitable, and generous with information. Our room, overlooking the garden square, was quiet, spacious, immaculately clean, and very comfortable (especially the bed), with lots of surface/storage for luggage. The value for the price was outstanding, especially compared to most of the other (more expensive) places we stayed during our 3 weeks in Italy. Although we chose Montecatini only as a stopping point in an otherwise long drive, we loved the town, with its large market, interesting shops, and lovely spa. Montecatini Alto, the ancient hilltop part of the town was one of the most beautiful hilltop towns we saw in Tuscany. Besides a delicious dinner at Windows on the World, Montecatini had the best gelato, pastries, and cappuchino we had on our trip (Gianninni's). Totally a great experience.
