We must have been there the same week as Trevor H but ours seemed to be a much more pleasant stay. We too were upgraded from the Plaza and we heard from some of their guests that the furniture was a bit "iffy". However we had no problems with the room whatsoever. The bed was large and comfortable, the room and bathroom were quite big and we always had plenty of hot water. The evening meals were good althought the desserts could have done with a bit more variety. We had a typical Tuscan special meal on the last night which was extreley good. Breakfasts on the other hand left a lot to be desired. Where was the fresh fruit salad and fresh yogurts ? I didn't want a full English just a bit more fresh stuff. The hotel itself has no information readily available although Reception would provide a street map. Chianciano Terme is a quiet town with expensive clothes shops and with just a few bars. The bars were reasonably cheap. This town is basically a place to rest while you are touring Tuscany. Every day is a trip for 1 to 2 hours to Siena, Florence, Rome etc. so by the time you have had dinner you are very tired.
