Grand Hotel & La Pace Spa *****L
The hotel has a fascinating story behind it: founded in 1870, it has seen big names in art, culture and political and economic power inhabit its elegant rooms, sumptuous halls and its specially cared for spaces for nearly a century and a half. What is more, the hotel has been able to change with time, taking in all the benefits brought by technology and progress, but without sacrificing its soul, that is, its Liberty elegance which sets it apart from the rest.
Nestled in a park, Grand Hotel & La Pace offers its guests spa treatments and programmes, the charm and luxury of its rooms and suites, the impeccable style of the personnel, the perfection of the restaurant, a swimming pool and tennis court and the large and organised area of the convention centre, which is the perfect venue for meetings, events and receptions.

The spa offers specific proposals for couples, such as the Spa Suite, as well as an indoor heated pool, rasul bath, relaxation area, seven treatment rooms, fitness centre and gym.

There is also a wide choice of beauty treatments and particular attention is paid to slimming, relaxation and wellness treatments.
Each one of the 130 rooms in this 5 star hotel is furnished with taste and class and they all feature unique antiques. There is a mini bar, television with foreign channels, air conditioning and internet connection in each room. Furthermore, as you move up the floors of the hotel, you can make use of even more services: the presidential suite, which faces the Tuscan hills, has an elegant marble bathroom with a hydromassage tub; and there is a meeting room with video telephone facilities for use during business meetings.
The rooms dedicated to catering also respect the Liberty style that characterizes every space within the hotel. The menu at the Le Magnolie Restaurant, with a marble floor using marble from Carrara, is frescoed by Art Nouveau Maestro Galileo Chini and proposes dishes that exalt typical, Tuscan products; not to mention an international menu and celiac, vegetarian and vegan options. Bordering the pool, guests can enjoy grilled dishes at the Grill Restaurant or snacks at the Pool Bar whilst at the Liberty Bar, guests are left impressed by the grandeur of the Salone degli Archi, accompanied by sweet piano notes in the background.
Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
Montecatini Terme is situated in the heart of Tuscany and therefore just a few kilometres from the main Tuscan cities of art. However, Montecatini Terme offers a vast range of leisure and cultural activities in the immediate vicinity too: a trip on the world's oldest funicular up to Montecatini Alto , which is home to a picturesque village and a view of the city below and the entire Valdinievole, is definitely worthwhile. What is more, in addition to presenting a series of walking trails through parks and hills, Valdinievole offers many opportunities to play sports thanks to numerous well-equipped facilities.
Pescia, Castelvecchio and the Riviera of Versilia are other places of great interest which are easy to get to from Montecatini.
