Hotel Michelangelo
Ranked #15 of 82 Hotels in Chianciano Terme
Reviewed 18 September 2011

Spent 5 nights here as part of a cosmos tour and wished we hadnt. The hotel building looks like something you would have discovered when the iron curtain came down. Finished in bare concrete with the reinforcing bars showing through the crumbling balcanies it could have been used in a war film. Inside isnt alot better, its all very late 50's and tierd looking. Just when you think it cant get any worse, it does, the food arrives. It is diabolical. Breakfast is a poor buffet selection will some burnt things that i think were ment to be crussants. Evening meals are scary to say the least. Meat mould and salad pie were some of the highlights. Soup for starters, well clear water with bits in. Meat, i think for the main and a selection of pudding from the trolley, at your own risk. Hair was served up on a few occasions to go with your meals. We made sure we had a good lunch out during the day and kept a snack in our room. The staff werent a happy bunch and the only good thing i can say about this hotel is the views. If you get a third floor room like we did at the back you had fantast views all over Tuscany from the balcany. If you had a lower floor or a room at the front you had no view at all. There is a large roof terrace with sunbeds so if you have a lower room you can go up here for the views. Small pool and unheated, very cold. Long walk down a very steep track to town or use minibus till 8pm and the local bus goes up the hill aswell for a euro. Town centre fairly non exsistant as it all designers shops. Dont go to this hotel and dont book a cosmos tour if they are using it as a base.

Room Tip: third floor room at the back

The Michelangelo is set amongst pine trees just outside the town. We had a lovely spacious 3rd floor room with a great view of Chianciano Terme and the surrounding countryside from the balcony. Panoramic views from the roof terrace. Good size swimming pool set in grounds. We had it more or less to ourselves late afternoon ,early evening when we used it.

On the plus side room very comfortable, and staff courteous and helpful. The Minibus shuttle service was good during the day running to the piazza Italia. Plenty of choice for breakfast ,cereal, fruit, cheese, salami, pastries etc. Evening meals choice of 3 options each for starter and maincourse plus big vegetable buffet. Lovely deserts. Great choice for a quiet relaxing holiday.

Food mainly OK not sure whether some of the main dishes deserve 4 stars but perfectly adequate. The Mini bus service stops at 8pm. The small road that runs round the back of the hotel takes you down to Piazza Italia about 600metres, most of the shops further on. It is a steep hill most of the way so you would need to be fairly fit to attempt it. We did it several times and it only takes about 10 minutes.

The modern part of Chianciano is full of designer shops and has not got much character. The old town is set on a hill at the opposite side of the town from the hotel. Well worth a visit. Very pretty with wonderful views. The archeological musuem on the Via Dante just before you reach the old town is excellent if you are interested in Etruscan and Roman period.

This hotel was our base for a touring holiday. We booked it as 4 Star with expectations quite high. Oh dear what a disappointment. The hotel is quite away from the town but there is a shuttle bus which stops running at 8p.m. The climb up to the hotel is steep and although I am just 60 years of age adn I am fit, I did struggle. The meals were very average and not a lot of it very meagre breakfasts, and unoriginal evening meals. The hotel desperately needs refurbishment. The rooms were not too bad, good size with nice bathroms with a bath not a shower. The hotel has a decent pool area, but whilst we were there a party of school children were also there. The Berlitz summer school was the name of the organisation. The children took over the pool area with no way of swimming as they had organised games in and around the pool. The bar was badly stocked. The other guests at the hotel were mostly aged Italians. The staff were inconsiderate and sometimes rude. There were problems with other hotels in this area. We would not go back to this hotel and would not recommend it to others
