1/ Perfect localisation - one of the main streets in Montecatini, but not noisy, short distance to main cities of Toscany, 2/ very helpfull staff, 3/ quite good breakfest, although only cold dishes, 4/ nice room and very comfortable bed. The hotel as well as the whole town is focused on eldery people (typical termal city), so there are only few pubs, restaurants and no clubs. Additionaly, driving by car in Montecatini is quite difficult due to the fact that majority of streets are one-way.
1) location in a lovely SPA town, between Pisa, Lucca and Florence 2)reasonable set menu for dinner (only one choice) nothing to do with the hotel - but the access through the narrow streets of Montecatini can at times be difficult.
beautiful spa city,many parks,relaxing,central location easy private parking,large superior room,no noises from the road needs a serious renovation especially the bathrooms and closets
Very clean, linen and towels changed daily, location good, free parking Hotel good but one way system in Montecatini makes it hard initially to get to hotel
Luxiry spacious room and bathroom, friendly professional staff.
great food no internet
Very good location. Excellent staff. Has private parking which is very convenient. Extremely clean hotel. Comfortable room. Abundant breakfast.
The Grand Hotel Tettucio is a very good hotel. The location is ideal, on Montecatini's main promanade opposite the Terme Excelsior (where you can get health treatments, such as massages) and moments from relaxing park land. Rooms were a little small and primitive, given the four star rating, but the shared areas were pleasant. The breakfast area was particularly impressive, a ground-floor balcony surrounded by flowering trees, and the choice of food was excellent, (including many homemade pasties and tarts). Don't expect a particularly chatty reception from the concierge (their English is only adequate), but given the hotel is only 1 minute from the Tourist Information Centre, this is hardly relevant.
Terrible experience. My single room was a dark dingy hole in the wall and nothing in it worked. Atfirst I was told they overbooked agreeing thAt the room was infer, and then they put off changing my room. I checked out after one night but had to pay a penalty for another night.
rather noisy early in the morning as other guests and staff passed by our room and not keeping their voices down/ sound was not sufficiently absorbed by carpets or walls.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The food was good. The rooms, although clean, were very scruffy and certainly not worthy of a 4 star grade.
The food;the position
Although looking tired from the outside, the hotel was more than acceptable internally. A very pleasant stay and ideally situated.
Excellent service, facilities, well located in its environment, helpful staff, very clean, pleasant stay, calm, relaxing atmosphere.
The staff were great and the Hotel was 100%. The location is lovely.
Very good location thin walls, you can hear the neighbours
some of the rooms didn't have shawer, they have bath without curtain
The service is exceptional, the staff wonderfully pleasant.
staff courtesy and room comfort noisy
Location Faded and a bit tired, needs some renovation
Roof top pool had amazing views.Meal in restaurant not bad for 15 euros (special offer) Hotel showed signs of faded glory-parking could be a prob.-we were lucky to get space outside hotel.(3 euros till 8am).Don't drink the water in fridge as you get ripped off-we thought it was complimentary as previous hotel.Not a minibar-just 2 cheap bottles.Cosmos used hotel-not a prob. but could be.
friendly welcoming staff
Very friendly and professional service. Very good room service/cleaners.
Nice surroundings. Room was very small. Poor breakfast and unfriendly waitress.
The building and the room is very nice, the hall, the bar is beautiful and everything is quiet, perfect to relax. Maybe the minibar could have more drinks and snacks, besides nothing to mention.
I liked its location; Montecatini is interesting and easy to access from Florence airport. Liked the smaller town feel. Liked the access to spas and old town. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful. Breakfast had good choices. At first it was difficult to find the hotel in the town. Better directions for travelers using cars on website would help. The staff does respond readily to emails with questions, however they could be more specific.
The peacefulness despite being near the centre of Montecatini Term
The location was very good. The swimming pool was unpleasant surprised because we expected better based on the photos of your website. The breakfast was very poor.
Staff very helpful. Breakfast good and room clean.
free parking near hotel, close to city center, pub, restaurant, shops, great breakfast, "sjajne krafnice"!
The staff was verying welcoming and couldn't do enough for us to make the most of our visit to Tuscany. The hotel is spotless and very modern with flat screen televisions in the rooms. You had a great choice for breakfast and it changed daily. Marco provided great restaurant and touring recommendations that were top notch. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Beautiful, clean room, parking very close, very welcoming atmosphere, good breakfast, easy to reach Toscany's sights ... just great!
The staff went out of their way to provide friendly, good service. A family owned and run hotel that I would be delighted to revisit.
Great hospitality at this hotel. Marco and his staff made me feel very welcome and nothing seemed too much trouble, he even made room bookings for my next destiniation. My room was large, modern and clean. Definate value for money. Free Wifi in room was also a plus.
perfect hotel for reasonable price. very good breakfast menu. it has been changed every day.
Hospitable, helpful people at the reception. Good location. Not bad (as for Italy) breakfest. Very small room, with elementary equipment. Looks poor - just a place to sleep, not to stay long.
friendly and helpfull staff, good breakfast small room size for triple room
Clean and tidy - both room and the hotel itself, excellent and very helpfull staff, free parking which is behind closed gate opened only by a key given by the hotel staff, great breakfast, good location in Tuscany - easy to get from and to the autostrade and is in the middle between Firenze and Pisa, the price is very low comparing to hotels in Tuscany. Room is very clean and tidy but isn't organized correctly - the bed was too close to the desk and it very hard to move the luggage into the room. In spite of that - this is an excellent hotel.
Wireless internet was not working.
great location, good design, room warm! -- temp could be adjusted, helpful staff, good beds, overall very pleasant
The room was extremely clean and large. There was almost no choice for the breakfast.
they put a group of 27 tourists in the same floor as my room and you can imagine what happened when they wake up and when they go to sleep. too much noise and talking loudly. the groups should be in different floors than individuals.
Excellent central location for exploring sights such as Lucca, Florence Piza etc. Hotel excellent value, with comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast and helpful staff. An ideal base to travel to and from. Deserves more than the 3 stars.
Very good value for money. Lovely lounge area in foyer. Close to park and good scenery. Wi-fi did not work very well most of the time. Road a bit noisy.
We stayed only one night,due to a terrible thing that happened that night to one of our closest relatives( in Romania). So, we had to leave in the next morning the hotel and Italy, even we intend to spend one week here. In such conditions we noticed the warm, sympathetic and nice behaviour of the hotel staff and the owner. We will remember this, we thank them and we hope that once we will come back.
Great location close to city center but relatively quiet. helpfull staff rooms might be bit bigger
Helpful staff. Off street parking is controlled by the Hotel. You pay a daily fee but it is better than on street parking which you generally pay more for if you can find a spot.
the hotel's owner was very nice. He loaned us bicycles, gave advice on local sights. The hotel has free wi-fi, and a computer to use for a nominal fee.
It is well situated in the town adn had good standards of cleanliness The breakfast was very basic and we didn't have any hot water in our room in the evening. Also there were no tea and coffee making facilities in the room and also no iron - even when I asked at reception if there was an iron that could be used
Hotel staff was very nice (mostly the girls). I don't think that they can do anything about it but they have the smallest bathrooms I have ever seen in my live.
It was in a good location and the pool was a real bonus. The air-conditioning system at this ageing hotel is dated and does not work properly. Our room was never cool and I should also add that for several hours during the day (and for three hours at night) they simply turn it off. Given that the temperature was in the 30s (celcius) when we were there this was simply unacceptable.
Poor TV reception and choice of channels (no satellite/cable TV).
The hotel staff was very helpful and could speak good english. The hotel was clean, comfortable and in a good location close to town.
its location it did not have enough tour brouchers and the front door was locked very early.
This family run hotel welcomes its visitors by giving a very good service Excellent restaurant, although we would suggest some fresh fruit would impove the breakfasts . Very clean, comfortable rooms. The owners and their staff are always available to help with local information. Easy walk to the train station with plently of trains to Pisa , Lucca, Florence, Seina ect. Would recommend this hotel to ensure a comfortable stay in Montecatini.
The large balcony, and the view from the swiming pool
Beautiful, tranquil location. Very easy access via train service to Lucca, Siena, Florence, Viareggio, San Gimignano.
Location to Bus and Train station, also Shops and Town Centre is very good. Bedroom, bathroom and large balcony, fridge & safe provided everthing needed. Good breakfast with lots of choice. Reception staff varied from excellent to poor.
Large and quiet room, good breakfast.
Helpful friendly staff, centrally located.Price Lack of bathroom soaps, shampoos you'd expect in 4 star hotel. lack of seating in room
the location and the breakfast the food and the owner was very helpful and friendly
The hotel is very well situated,staff were friendly, helpful. Breakfast set up ideal for a busy day. Local restaurants and bars excellent. we would highly recommend the Da Vinci.
Excellent facilities (including the pool), very helpful staff (even we made a mistake in the booking the staff made sure that we got two doubles instead of the singles we booked). The breakfast buffet was excellent as well. The location, the hotel is close to the center of town and close to the different spas around Montecatini. We can highly recommend this hotel.
Good size room,most staff able to understand and assist with queries. One particular female member of staff was not particularly friendly on Reception,seemed our questions were a chore.Asked about swimming pool and again she seemed off hand at having to take us to see it in building opposite.On asking about using stairs,she said had to be the lift as stairs were blocked.My friend has a phobia abouit lifts,so managed to go up with her,but on coming down found stairway was accessible and got back to ground level safely. Never greeted or said goodbye like other reception staff..barely looked up!!On arriving were told we were in Hotel Boston.On explaining I had seen a review where another had been put in the other hotel,rather than their booking at Da Vinci,she was very defensive saying thats where our room was,and no room in Da Vinci. Shame as all others were very friendly. Felt breakfast was very basic and would have liked to see some fresh fruit in such a country.Also my friend being vegetarian..limited choice.Bread very hard each day.
Friendliness of staff. It was the best value hotel that had a pool that you had on your website.. Good restaurant and excellent evening meals. breakfast was adequate, and served beside the pool. parking on site was free. Bathrooms were a bit dated, but clean.
Proximity to Finucolare Proximity to park Good pool area, although pool is small Good air conditioning Food was mediocre - not much choice Bathroom basin cracked; bathroom in need of upgrading Bar was poor - and closes at 11 pm sharp No light snacks available at lunchtime Seems to be geared towards transient tour clients - one or two nights stay Uphill from town centre - difficult in hot weather
Extra large rooms for Italy!! Had two of everything They turned off the ac between 5 and 11 pm!!! Got back from dinner at 10pm and died in the heat. As usual--no ice--got some in a plastic bag.No tissues.
Competent and helpfull staff, good location close to the park and town center but relatively quiet, always most of sunbeds by the swimming pool vacant rooms reqiuire refurbishing, continental breakfasts
Location superb. Decor very elaborate ! Reception staff excellent - friendly and helpful. It was clean and our room was lovely Breakfast could be better. Mini Bar was empty,
Central - close to centre of town in delightful park area . nice walk into town also close to markets and fanacolor No complaintas except left without bathtowel on one night
Everyhthing worked very well. The rooms were very comfortable, the staff attentive and helpful, and it was excellent value for money One small criticism. On our last evening we had booked a table for six for dinner at 8-30. We were made to hurry our meal because the restaurant was quiet and the chef wished to go home.
Breakfast is poor, room are smell, minibar empty, TV - old 15 years. It is 2 star hotel, not 4 star. Avoid.
Position and size the room and bathroom. Furnitur and TV.
Yes, I really liked it to stay in the hotel for 11 nights. Some noisy for the first days, but after ac was switched on all was ok.
the hotel is situated in the heart of the town and the car parking next to the hotel only held six cars so it was a first come first served basis. we were always back late so we never parked there.the very long street opposite has ample parking as long as you move the car before 8 am and you have to pay 1euro per hour up until 8pm remember to only park in the blue areas as the white lined parking is for residents only the hotel itself was a big surprise to us. it is very modern and the rooms have recently been done up. a shower cubicle replaces the old bath and the sink and bathroom suite are very contemporary. we had a single and a double room which both had ample room and comfort there is also an l.c.d television with about five english speeking channels we did not use the spa facility but were surprised at the low price of the services the only downside was the breakfast which didnt had loads to choose from but being scottish i am used to the cooked breakfast and the top floor restuarant overlooking the town makes up for it
Facilities/services, location, hotel staff
I stayed at the Hotel Columbia for a week in June and it was very very nice. First of all, their restaurant on the top floor is excellent. Wonderful food, top class service, and setting and a great view of the mountains from the very large windows completely covering one side (and more) of the room. Secondly, the employees at the reception desk were kind and helpful while being professional and efficient. The rooms were also cleaned very nicely. And the hotel is in a central and convenient location. It is also very close to the Congress center where I had business. They also freely gave me wireless internet passes. And I didn't have time to use myself but they also seemed to have excellent facilities for spa, massage, and beauty treatments. I was very satisfied so this is not really a negative point, but the room I happened to have was not so large, but considering the great price I got, I think I received a great bargain. There seem to be many room types for different needs.
The staff consistently went out of their way to be helpful. There was nothing I did not like about the hotel.
the staff was wonderful to us. They were extremely attentive and helped us out when we needed it. they were great, and made us feel welcome. i think that a person could stay on line at no charge for longer than 10 minutes.
Amazing Room. The best we had in Europe! The Hotel is beautiful. Staff us friendly. Food was excellent with a great view You had to pay extra and book for the spa. I thought it might be part of the Hotel.
Wonderful hotel and delightful room. Staff very courteous and helpful.Great location for city.
Nice hotel, good location,breakfast was adequate,room nice with the added luxury of a balcony although without much of a view, staff were helpful at all times.

Very nice vibe in the hotel, really polite and friendly staff. Breakfast was good and nice and peaceful. Great location. Very clean and modern hotel, had everything you needed. Our room on the fourth floor was under the main dining area, when staff came into work at 6am to prepare for 7am breakfast, you good hear them, the rooms are not very sound proof, I was awoken a fews times because of the noise penetrating through the ceiling. Also, not all reception staff offered the same information. For example, one day we asked the receptionist if they had a pool, she said no. The next day we asked another receptionist where the nearest pool was and he sent us to a sister hotel, therefore, if we wouldnt have asked him, we would have never known you could use other hotels. Lastly, I felt the room didnt have enough details about the facilities available, ie. The welcome pack in the room was not updated, it should clearly state correct breakfast times etc..usage of sister hotel facilities etc.. I was not too impressed with the Spa, the treatments were nice and the staff lovely, I just felt the spa was very small and the decor was too dark. I felt the actualy spa rooms to be too dark and suffocating, I didnt relax in them. I feel the rooms to be redecorated to create a more relaxing, less suffocating feel.
Well situated,nice large extra comfort room. Spotlessly clean towels daily, sheets every other day Breakfast average, no fresh fruit. Minibar didn't work, Parts of the hotel were shabby.
Superb location with outstandingly unbelievable view Friendly staff, Elegant ambiance Excellent breakfast Fabulous private deck with view of Monterossa & the sea Bedrooms a bit dated
The swimming-pool was cloused
Well situated for the amenities of the town , but still a peaceful location. The decor and lighting was a bit dull and the bathroom needs an overhaul.Overall it was pleasant , but 4 star a bit exaggerated by most standards.
Nice location, good helpful staff. I made reservation for a room for 3 persons and the room was for 2 + added bad. The room was too small, would be uncomfortable if I stay longer. Very high prices in lobby bar and for mini bar. Breakfast - small choose. In season time - July - they still were making renovation in hotel, swimming pool out of order.
We were not there long enough to take advantage of any of the facilities, but the room and bathroom were both good for the price.The breakfast was very good. The receptionists were friendly and welcoming. Nothing bad. Just a feeling that the decor in the corridors, bedrooms and bathrooms were ready for re-doing.
This Hotel was perfect and staff went out of their way to provide helpful information about how to visit the local sites,the pool area is new with a lovely spa,towels are provided and the area is lovely for relaxation,breakfast was good,i have nothing negative to sayabout this hotel.My teenage children also enjoyed it very much Liked everthing-nothing negative to say
Very friendly staff, good service, very good brekfast and our room had a nice balcony with terrific view of a big park and recreation area. Rebuiding activities during our stay
Beautiful hotel in the best part of town. Frigo bar didn't work in any of the three rooms and the staff wasn't able to resolve the problem. Hot water took 5 minutes to arrive in one room and in another the shower head broke, but was immediately tended to by staff. No a/c was available and the rooms had a "closed up" smell that never went away. Bathrooms smelled damp and musty. Noise from other guests was considerable.
The Hotel is set in its own gardens which are pleasant and ensure a peaceful stay. Ample car parking. Reception staff were very helpful. Website states ths hotel is 1.5Km from Lucca: It is not! It is at least 5Km from the centre of Lucca and cannot be walked due to the main road that the hotel drive adjoins. There is a Restaurant next to the hotel, we tried it I'd suggest that you don't!
Location and environment There were mosquitoes in the restaurant outside the hotel.
I liked the art work displays on the hotel grounds The bed mattresses were extremely hard!
Nice modern hotel with friendly and helpfull english speaking staff. A good base for Lucca/Pisa area.
An exellent hotel a few kilometers outside Lucca, Clean spacius room for our family of 4. Add a pool and I would give 5 stars!
Nice location, calm, free parking, modern art The centre of Lucca is more than 5 km away and not just 3 km as indicated on the website. Breakfast was ok but could have been better. Esp. one day when a group travelling by bus stayed at the hotel breakfast was not sufficient and staff did not react appropriatly.
Friendly personnel. Good for families
parking and size of room restaurant service was slow. for dinner it took 1 hour for our food to arrive.
Good location. Breakfast service was very good. Staff, other than one daytime person, was very helpful and courtious. One gentleman at the desk was very unpleasant. Not sure, but I felt that he did not particularly enjoy having english speaking guests. Hotel description concerning spa and fitness resources is very misleading. Hotel desk staff basically indicted that they were not available on site, but could, maybe be found in town. Not convenient at all as we had hoped for.
Good parking for those who are traveling by car, however far from Lucca (car needed). Very basic, but clean and large room. Air conditioning not working, mosquitos biting during the night, had to ask for a machine to avoid mosquitos (supplied by the hotel upon request). The pictures on the web site do not reflect reality, the bathroom is much simpler than shown (no tiles) and very very small shower area, however, it was clean. The vila is not as beautiful as the photos suggest. Could not close the window because A/C wasn't working, people used to gather for a chat during the night in front of reception (below the windows) a little anoing.
