“Be careful when you sit down!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We stayed at the Grand Hotel as part of a group. All of the chairs in the lobby needed upgrading. All of the seat pans sagged badly. I understand the look they are seeking, but I do believe you can achieve the same look by replacing the seat foam and recovering. The chairs in the dining room were so fragile, I was afraid if I moved, one of the legs would snap. Our room was in dire need of upgrading. We turned the heat in our room up to the max but it never came on leaving us cold. Others in our party baked in their rooms. There is hope as the entire second and third floors were cordoned off for construction! A bright spot is the patisserie across the street. Not only is it open early for pastries, but also until midnight, serving coffee and limoncello!

Stayed January 2013, traveled with friends

We spent one week with my family at the Grand Hotel Plaza and enjoyed it very much. Our children as well, they felt like at home. The staff couldn't be better and the experience positive, from any point of view. Really satisfied.

Don't stay here if you want modern and minimalistic......it is one of the oldest hotels in Montecatini and has lots of character. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the food too.
Swimming pool area quite small but kept clean.
An ideal base for exploring Tuscany. We stayed on a Cosmos Touring holiday and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
You must try Gambrinus bar just down the road. Great cocktails and they often have live music.

Room Tip: We overlooked the main square and although very busy at night the noise didn't go on too late...

This hotel has character and does not suffer from the blandness of some chain hotels. It is comfortable and the staff are excellent - always friendly and attentive. The room was fine and had a good view over the front of the hotel. My only complaint? Powdered scrambled egg for breakfast - not nice!

I have been several time at Grand Plaza Hotel in Montecatini and I always found an excellent and warm hospitality due to the high professional standard of the owners.
The room where I've stayed last time was excellent and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.
I can highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience Italian hospitality at its best.

Hotel was very nice and very clean BUT was very noisy! There was a band with a singer outside our room all 3 nights( a Friday,Sat and Sunday)that we stayed. The band was done by 11 or so but the revelry on Sat night went on until after 2am so be sure you take earplugs along. Food was not too great(eggs for breakfast runny and bacon undercooked). Internet was free which was very nice. It worked in our room on 1st floor but not in my sisters room on 2nd floor (had to go to lobby). Location is good-you can walk from train station to hotel.
