The staff was very kind.Posted Jul 22, 2014
It was clean and comfortable. Breakfast is less than the standard. But, it was enough for us. The staff was very kind. 5 minute walk from downtown. I would definitely recommend.

Pros: Hotel staff
Cons: Water pressure on the 6th floor. Breakfast content to be widened i.e. inclusion of cold meats and cheeses
Location: Montecatini town centre was a 5 min walk and there is a beautiful park within a stone's throw from the hotel - beautiful
As a 3 star hotel I expected more from this hotel. We were placed on the 6th floor with the elevator only reaching the 5th and as such you need to walk the rest which can be a problem if you have large suitcases (we did). Rooms were on the small side especially the bathroom. Taking a shower was a problem and no holder for the shower hear on the wall and the bath would have benefits from a shower screen.curtain. Aircon didn't work as expected in that it blew hot air out but didn't cause us too much of a problem as we just kept windows opened. Walls separating rooms were very thin and could hear occupants next door opening and shutting cupboards. I took the breakfast option with consisted of cereals, bread, butter, jam - no cheese or meat products. I ended up buying these from a local supermarket to supplement my breakfast. The staff themselves were great and very helpful. Polite at all times and always with a smile. Nearby hotel car park was a great benefit as was the hotel's locality to Montecatini i..e. 5 mins walk.

Good Location and Nice staffPosted Oct 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
There is a lot to do in this area and it's so easy to get to neighboring towns like Lucca, Pisa, Viareggio, Firenze, Prato and Pistoia by train. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the train station but it is a little confusing to find so do print out or make a little map or just pick up one when you get into town which is what I did. Streets aren't always labeled with names. The pool both indoor and outdoor is not at the San Marco hotel property itself it's around the corner in the Grand Le Plac Hotel which is lovely and one of the Leading Hotels of the World. You get to use their facilities. The outdoor pool is available free/indoor pool has a charge but 20%discount for San Marco guests and a Turkish sauna which was incredible. Remember to bring a towel from the San Marco else you have to pay to rent one at the indoor pool. As for the town I do recommend going up to Montecatini Alto which is by funicular and the little train tour that goes through town every 40 minutes and is very nice. It's a great walking city and I found lots of great food that wasn't expensive as well. Breakfast was great and the staff is so wonderful in the dining room. I was getting over a cold and each morning they made me green tea the minute they saw me enter to room, so sweet. Also do think about going to the Thermal Redi Spa which is one of several spas in the town. It's not expensive but you must bring your own towel! And it's great for circulation issues.

Good valuePosted Jun 29, 2012
Pros: Location and staff.
Cons: Room condition, air condition.
Location: Very close to the central piazza, yet tucked away in a quite corner of the town with a park near by.
While first impression of the Hotel San Marco was a disappointment,later on it revealed it's charm. Very conviniet location, charming and usefull staff made the stay enjoyable. In the end this hotel matches perfectly the town it's in while providing a good value for your dollar.

Top staff servicePosted Apr 15, 2012
The staff at the hotel were superb - I literally cannot fault how far out of their way they went for us. The hotel is about 5 minutes from Montecatini town centre and a 10 minute walk from the cable car to Montectini alto (well worth a visit). The train is easily reached, with fast trains stopping at Montecatini Centro (10 mins) and stopping strains stopping at Montecatini Therme (which is also where the bus station is). Overall loved it - top staff!!!

The San Marco Hotel near Pisa and Florence, Italy.Posted Aug 16, 2010 on Hotels.com
Surrounded by Roman Spas and in a chique yet historical town, the hotel & area is on our list for a return to spend more time there. Facilities and staff wonderful and great value.
