The small town of Montecatini Terme is quite pleasant if unremarkable, and has some nice restaurants and cafés, and unlike other places in Italy, a smattering of Italian is required in order not to starve. Cheap Chianti flows readily in the evenings, and a trip to Montecatini Alto via the funicular railway will be rewarded with some wonderful views and excellent (if slightly overpriced) dining on the piazza.
This hotel was booked through an agent specialising in deals for solo travellers. It's a bit tired and dated but let's face it, you don't go to Tuscany in June to enjoy the design on your hotel wallpaper. You are half an hour from Florence, less than an hour from the beautiful Viareggio coast, with Lucca, Pistoia and other locations to explore.
Hotel staff are extremely obliging, particularly the evening concierge. Breakfast is available in the comfortable dining room. Evening meals are also served, although there is a wider choice in the town.
I expect better is available for the price, but there's nothing actually wrong with this place.
