First, 25 years ago the town of Chianciano Terme was a bustling city but since the healing waters have all but disappeared the town and its hotels seem to have withered away. The "Grand" Hotel Admiral Palace is a basic tour bus hotel. During our short stay 3 different tour buses came and went with overnight guests. The hotel was completely full so we stayed in a handicap room. Fine for us, but anyone with a disability would have had problems. The shower enclosure door was broken and the bathroom rubbish can lid wouldn't open so we ended up throwing our tissues on the floor! The bed was comfortable but the bedspread so worn that it made the room feel even shabbier.
We arrived in the evening and decided to eat in the hotel for dinner. The food was basic at best, as was the breakfast buffet. We took a quick look at the spa and found it to be only average too. Checkout was a nightmare! Only one person on duty with a line of 12-15 people waiting to depart.
Chianciano Terme was our base and when we travel we like to arrive back after a long day of sightseeing to comfort. It was our first visit to Grand Hotel Admiral Palace, and last. There are just too many other gorgeous towns to stay nearby that are full of life and have quality accommodations.
