The view from the restaurant is fantastic. Breakfast is good and dinner esquisite. The only problem -the receptionist didn't give back the documents at the check out so we had to return.
I would go again with my family. The termal bath near by were ok and the "grotta" something unforgetable.

The Santa Barbara is a very charming Tuscany villa style hotel. There are 5 large villas, all 3 stories with between 5-10 rooms a floor. The 3rd floor has balconies overlooking Montecatini and there are plastic tables with 4 plastic chairs on each balconies for you to sit and enjoy the view.

The villas are a little spread out over a large lot and there are pretty trees behind the lot in which you can take a stroll. The restaurant is at the top up by the reception room and the restaurant was fantastic! The food was all very Italian and the chefs were kind and liked to joke with you. The views from the restaurant windows are superb.

There are certainly a couple of things you should know before booking this though. It is old- no pool or internet or any modern facilities. The bedding and decor is surely left over from the 70's or earlier. The bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. For some it may be "rustic," for others who are into the modern, you will probably find it old and a little dirty.

It is also in Montecatini ALTO, which means at the top of a hill very very far from the small town of Montecatini at the bottom. It is not a walkable distance. There are fridges in the rooms (small ones), so if you get your own wine in town and store it that is all you will need.

You will also be right in between Pisa & Florence, so expect about a 45 minute drive to either place. I would stay here again, I thought it was romantic, but would not take children here because there would be nothing for them to do. Go here if you want to unwind, relax, and enjoy the peacefulness.

Albergo Santa Barbara is a very nice, quaint hotel consisting of 5 Tuscan villas with an amazing view of Montecatini Terme. There is also a very good restaurant that serves excellent typical Tuscan meals. I recommend the coffee for breakfast and the veal for dinner.
However, some of the room s have showers which are only showerheads and mats on the side of the bathroom.
Nonetheless, I would recommend anyone going to Florence or Pia in search of a low-cost, comfortable hotel to go this hotel. Make sure to stay in either Villas 4 or 5, and make sure to take many pictures on top of the roof-top balconies.
