Let me begin by making one thing quite clear. I only stayed in this hotel for one night as the hotel I was due to stay in was fully booked for that night. I did not use the hotel for anything other than sleeping in, and therefore this review is very limited in scope.

The hotel is very old dating back to 1870. According to the hotel information in the room, stars ranging from Gary Cooper to Grace Kelly to Julio Iglesias, have stayed there since. The hotel possesses grandeur but this is now faded and faded beyond an acceptable level. The corridors are huge both in length and height, but the carpet that carries you to your room is threadbare in places. The paintwork in the rooms is chipped and the plaster in the walls and ceiling are cracked. The chair in my room had collapsed with the stuffing hanging out of the bottom, the enamel on the enormous bath was severely chipped in the bottom of the bath.

The staff at reception appear to retain the grandeur that their hotel now lacks, being snooty and off hand to this one night holidaymaker. In reality I could afford to stay there, but I will not. I will stay in a modern, comfortable well facilitised hotel that delivers for its customers today rather than living on glories of the past.

We stayed here for five nights in early September. Like others, I had read the reviews and was nervous about our visit. It is a huge hotel and overall we had a very pleasant experience there.

We found the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and courteous at all times. They want you to enjoy your visit. Guillano in reception could not have been more willing to help in any way and made great suggestions for sightseeing etc. He also has perfect english which makes it so much easier for people like us who have virtually no Italian. Mario runs a very good ship in his restaurant whether you are in the ballroom/dininghall for breakfast, at the poolside for lunch or on the terrace for dinner. All the waiters and waitresses were anxious to please at all times.

The public areas are vast, with plenty of areas to sit and read (and lots of magazines, papers and books left around for your enjoyment.) The park outside the hotel is quiet and surrounds the pool area which is a tranquil haven. Lunch at the pool was a delicious experience but not for those worried about their figures. The amount of food on offer at the buffet lunch was enormous!! Dinner both inside and outside were comfortable, sedate affairs with good food and a good wine list.
Our bedroom was very large but distinctly old fashioned, particularly the bathroom. We had a large bed with pillows so hard I had to ask for softer ones (supplied immediately I requested them) There was a noisy but efficient A/C unit. I was disappointed in our room but only from a decor point of view. This is very much an Italian hotel and I have always found them quirky in their interiors. There is absolutely no doubt that this hotel would benefit hugely from a makeover - one that did not take from the historic features of the hotel but rather enhanced them but having said that, the overall experience was a good one and we would go back.

Room Tip: Speak to the staff at reception to ensure a good room

It was not me who has chosen the hotel...
And when I was reading other reviewers, I was terrified! It supposed to be a nice one week with my wife in Tuscany and I was not ready to spend it in an old building with terrible service...
But luckiliy it was not that bad! It seems that somebody had a really bad luck or very high ambitions.
Good things: its the very city center, main square; at least our room was newly renovated and the same for bath - fresh and clean; fantastic swiming pool and the area - you can easily spend there whole day enjoying sun; staff was friendly and helpfull in everything.
Bad things: beds - you can not call it king size bed if it is two single beds, just putted together (gap between them by the morning was quite big every day...); air conditioning - you can set 18-21C range only or 30-35C if the window is open... What shall you do, if you prefer 23C??? Price - a bit too expensive, but I was there while Miss Italia was ongoing the same place. Overall quality of common areas - days of its glory were some 20-30 years ago. Fantastic building, but crying for renovation and restyling.
My recommendation - if you are in Montecatini Terme because of business or just for few days only - you can survive. If you want to spend more time and your aim is to explore Tuscany - try to find one of small luxury hotels.

Agree with other reviews - it is ratgher old hotel in the need of complete renovation but in the same time you feel the history of that place, spacious public areas, extremely good service in the restaurant, clean rooms and fantastic park with the outdoor pool. Would recommend to stay there.
