This was my first time in Italy but not in Europe. I can honestly say that this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in after having traveled in Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the Carribean. For those who complain about accomodations...honestly, did you come to Italy to sleep and spend all your time inside? I spent 6 nights there and was only in my room to sleep and shower. My room was perfectly fine. What makes this hotel special are the people who work there. They do everything they can to make you happy. Trust my words as a seasoned traveller. You will not be dissappointed with this wonderful hotel.
The wait staff in the morning is quick to help you in any way. Giuseppe will great you every morning and Riccardo will go out of his way to make sure you have everything you need to start your day.
The bar and patio are an awesome place to end the day. Not just because of the beautiful decorations inside and the wonderful temperature outside, but because the barman, Roberto is the nicest person I have ever met. He is very patient with those who don't speak Italian and his smile will warm your heart.
At reception, Beatrice and Marco will help you with anything too! Just remember as a previous post mentions, approaching anyone with a smile and a courteous greeting, no matter the language, is the best way to assure that you are well received. The staff there deal with a lot of people from all over the world every day and I saw personally that they do an excellent job to make each and every one of them feel at home. Go to Montecatini and stay here to experience la vita dolce! You will want to go back. I know I will.
