Montecatini Old Fashioned hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 20, 2007

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The surroundings are quite beautiful. The views from our room were breathtaking. And, we could feel free to leave the windows open at night to breathe in the fresh, cooler air, and not worry about bugs!
The bathroom story was curious, though. Although the bathroom featured very modern fixtures, there was a tub, with a shower attachment, but no shower curtain. We were forced to kneel in the tub in order to wash our hair, or get washed ourselves, or else, the water spewed everywhere!
We did not receive a daily change of towels, either, which was a little annoying, when,on the first day, we didn't realize the shower issue, and we had used one of the towels to mop up the floor. Yuck!
The breakfast was OK. It came with the room, but there was nothing exciting about it.
The concierge was always helpful, and maps of the area were availalbe to us.

Unique Quality: There was a pool on the top floor, which had spectacular views. I didn't use the pool, but it looked inviting. Also, there were alot of chairs that one could sit on near the pool, and I noticed that there was also some sort of bar service as well.
The elevator was extremely tiny, but there are central wide stairs for room access.
The hotel was non-smoking, but there was a curious smoky odor in the room.
One can easily walk to the center of town from this hotel. I do not know where you would park a car, however, as I never saw any parking lots.
There is a lovely park only 2 blocks from the hotel, which is rather large, that has asphalt walkways through it for walking.
