“lovely hotel run by lovely people”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Returned home last week after spending a week at La Pia Hotel and just wanted to say we had a wonderful time. Pierre and Maria are what other hoteliers should strive to be. Its easy to see why the hotel ratings are so high, absolutely nothing is too much trouble. Pierre kindly purchased our train tickets in advance to Lucca and Florence for our day trips. On our final day we weren't due to leave Montecatini until 4 in the afternoon and Maria very kindly allowed us to keep our room so we could freshen up before our journey. They actually made time to speak to guests and made us feel special. Thank you Pierre and Maria for a wonderful stay at your hotel and wish you all the best for the future.

Room Tip: we had room 31 and had a balcony overlooking the seating area with the fountain in front of the hote...

Our group stayed for five nights at this splendid hotel. It is located centrally in Montecatini which is a delightful spa town in Tuscany. For the owners, Pierre and especially the delightful Maria, who was fluent in English, nothing was too much trouble. This attitude was reflected in their long serving staff who were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. Our rooms were comfortable and clean and enjoyed some of the most effective and quiet air conditioning I have known. The food was very high in quality, but not in price. It was especially good for vegetarians. The wine list was very good and much less expensive than in an equivalent UK hotel. Although nominally a three star, La Pia is in our view four star in accommodation and five star in service. Should we return to the area, and we probably will, we will certain wish to stay here,

I had a lovely stay with our group at La Pia. The lovely Maria realy could not do enough for you-nothing was too much trouble, such as catering for the various diets in our group or making a cup of tea even though the bar area was not open. I stayed in a single room which was just right for my needs with a small ensuite bathroom, a safe and television (which I didn't use). I am always prepared with ear plugs and you never know what traffic you will get, but with those I found I did not have any problem sleeping. I would stay here again if exploring the area.

The location of the hotel was ideal for exploration into the surrounding areas of Tuscany, yet the town of Montecatini Terme is lovely, quiet by day, active by night, and far less expensive than staying in one of the "name" cities nearby. A short drive gets you where you want to go very quickly. The town itself is very explorable and has a very cool and long funicular railroad to the upper town of Montecatini Alto.

The hotel proprietors are Pia Maria and her brother. We were warmly welcomed immediately upon our arrival and were treated like family. We were set up with a secure parking place in the parking lot of a nearby property 1 minute away. Our lovely rooms overlooked one of the town squares and quite beautiful. When we need directors or maps or information, Maria was there to provide us the information. A very complete and delicious breakfast was included every morning with cakes and treats that were home made. On the morning of our departure, we left quite early (around 6:00am) and the breakfast service was not yet open, but Maria's brother came in early and set up a small private expresso and croissant service for us, which was quite nice. We are looking forward to our next thrip to Tuscany again, when we would for sure stay at Hotel Pia once again. I give the property and the proprietors my highest recommendation.

Room Tip: Great Location to Explore Tuscany; Warm and Wonderful Proprietors!

Just returned from a weeks holiday in Montecatini Terme where we stayed at the La Pia Hotel. This hotel is situated in a small square off the main road, so it's ideally located. (Its located in a square behind the Hotel Impero) Not to noisy but handy for the town centre, train and bus station.
The room we were allocated was to the rear so there's no view as behind La Pia is another Hotel so all you see is a wall and windows. The rooms to the front are the best as they have balcony's looking over the square. However this didn't detract from the stay as it was more than compensated by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and the quality (and quantity) of the meals provided. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the staff make you feel like family.
The La Pia is a great hotel to stay at if you want to explore the Tuscany region.
I've stayed in Montecatini Terme several times over the last few years and I can only hope when I return here that I can book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony overlooking the square

Considering the cost of the rooms this hotel is excellent value for money. La Pia is a great place to stay if you want to explore this area of Tuscany. Florence and Pisa are both short trips away on the train. Montecatini itself is a lovely town. danijel
