“No Frills !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2009

You have to get this in perspective; this is a 3 star hotel in a busy tourist area. If you are expecting luxury and opulence don’t stay here.

The lobby and public areas are what you would expect from a hotel of this standard. The rooms however are a bit run down and rather dowdy, but reasonably clean. They are air conditioned but ours did not cope very well and the room did get quite hot at times. There are no balconies either so it wasn’t possible to get out of the heat at night. There was a fridge in the room that was an unexpected bonus. (but not in the children’s room)

The location is very good. The railway station, spa, funicular and town are all within easy walking distance.

The pool area was very pleasant and well maintained but the bar was unstaffed during my stay here.

The food (we stayed on a package) was again about what you would expect but a bit repetitive. I don’t want to see another Creme Caramel in my life !

The staff are great. They are all friendly and helpful. The dining room staff work really hard and do a really good job serving people quickly whilst remaining very pleasant. This is a smallish hotel so you tend to see the same staff everyday so you sort of get to know one another - which was nice.

We got this hotel on a late availability package, and were very happy with what we got for the price we paid. It would have been different had we paid the published brochure price - I think we could have done better.

Overall though, a good experience

For a three star hotel it was very good. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. I was in a touch group 40 strong with very early rising always to be greeted by smiling faces. We arrived at 10.00 pm at night and the only hiccup with the hotel was the night porter who seemed to be a bit confused by the large number of people, it soon got sorted out though, the bar was opened for us and from there on they could not have been more helpful.

My wife and I stayes at Hotel Miro (formerly known as "Hotel Millenium") as a short brake during summer before leaving for a holiday with the whole family. So we didn't want to spend to much. Miro's location is fab, walking distance to the feniculare to Montecatini Alto (a absolute must do!) and the Terme. Great!. But the hotel is awfull. Breakfast is very scarce with only once every three days fresh bread (buns). No warm items, 1 sweatty sort of cheese and pressed ham. Further only some jams and cereal. Coffee and tea (no cappucino or similar attainable, even if you wanted to pay for it!!!) and watery factory orange like lemonade. Dinner same thing. Chewy meat, tapioca kinds of dessert, very limited salad bar and all in very small portions. Beverages were not free and limited to water, regular coke, fanta of wine. Nothing else could be ordered even if you offered to pay extra for it. Always the same excuse that deliveries had been late :(, If you insist on going to Miro I advise you to do as we did. We usually fled the hotel as soon as possible and left for the neareby pub to get something decent to eat. For the room: we were lucky to get sun in the morning and had a room on the second floor!! Why? Because the airco made lots of noise, but provided no cooling. It ment that we really had to get out of our room early, since temperature on our digital traveling clock quickly rose to 32 degrees Celsius at 9:30 am (love the Itlalian sun though). During the day the sun went to the other side of the building and temperature lowered to around 24. So, sweatty nights but we slept anyway. But I pittied those who had a top floor room with sun in the evenings. Heard them complain to reception in vain. The room itself was old, extremely worn fittings (chrome had worn away onto the copper) and the bathroom was smelly and moldy with broken tiles. The shower produced very little water (jumping from drop to drop my wife called it) with rapid changes of hot and cold water. On top of that, the hotel experienced a powerdown of several hours. Not an unusual event according to the receptionist. The pool was reasonably, but the scarce pool furniture was very worn and during our stay one of the swinging couches collapsed while guests were sitting in it. When we left four days later, it was still lying by the pool side untouched. But I must say, staff tried to make the best of it. They apologized and tried to make you feel special and praised the awfull food presenting it as a treat. Pathetic on some moments.

I have just come back from a 7 day stay at the Hotel Miro and really want to say how great this little hotel is! Both myself and my mum had stayed in Italy before and were very impressed with the hotel facilities. The best bit about the Hotel Miro are the friendly and welcoming staff especially the Franco. The food was lovely and we ate well every night. We also had pack lunchs which were also yummy. I would not hesitate to return! The town of Montecatini is beautiful and the holiday was wonderful.

Having booked with Last Minute.com I wasn't expecting too much from a 3* Hotel in Italy, however our experience in this hotel was first rate.

The staff are very friendly and will accomodate any request with a smile and are very efficient and caring.

The 4 course evening meals cannot be faulted. The food was probably the best I have ever had in a hotel by a long way. Traditional Italin food that was cooked to perfection and served very quickly, there was not one dish that anyone around us did not like.

The rooms are functional, with good air conditioning and a large bed. As in other reviews the shower does take some setting up and could do with being bigger, but it was perfectly adequate for the time we were there.

The locality of the hotel is ideal for most of the sights in Montecatini Terme and is only 300m away from the Fernicular that takes you up to Montecatini Alto. A trip well worth taking as the views are amazing. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the famous spa's that give the town it's name and is right next to the local market.

The local trains, the station for which is 10 minutes walk from the hotel are ideal for getting to Florence, Pisa, Lucca and the other surrounding areas. They are clean and airconditioned.

However back to the hotel, if you are looking for a good clean hotel with friendly staff and good food and facilities then I would highly recommend the Hotel Miro. We are looking forward to going back!

Very Friendly hotel indeed. Bubbly staff who make you feel very welcome. Food was excellent and plenty of it.

Rooms small but functional.

Pool small but big enough to swim comfortably in.

Very well placed for sightseeing, spas, railway, motorway, gardens & shops etc

Found only one irritating thing - the sun loungers were uncomfortable with no cushions - so it may be worth taking a blow up cushion or similar with you if staying here.

Clean & Friendly atmosphere, welcoming staff who put you at ease describes this hotel

For some reason theHotel is coming up as being in Beverly Hills. It is in Montecatini Terme in Italy, don't be fooled. We booked this holiday last minute with Inghams as we could no longer stand the rain in England. The Hotel has marked as a three star and I did not expect very much. What a suprise when we arrived to find a chic , clean and friendly hotel. the interior is sort of contemporary deco. Our room was very small with no view (we only slept in it) but very clean and comfortable. the only thing wrong with the room was the shower which was either cold or very hot. The food was great. the swimming pool was small but really clean although the gardens were a bit patchy due to the heatwave. The best bit was the staff who were really accomodating, friendly and funny. who said Italians don't have a sense of humour!
The location of the hotel was perfect for touring being only minutes from the Autostrada and half an hour from Pisa and Florence, depending on traffic. Montecatini Alto was quite beautiful and worth a visit riding up on the funicular. I would not return to Florence if you paid me, but we both loved Vinci, Volterra, Monteriggioni and Lucca.
I would recomend this hotel for singles or families and I would definately stay there again. I have stayed in a lot worse three star
hotels in Italy!
