You will then have some free time to explore the city at leisure.

Green Hotel Ambrosiano ****

The Orsucci family, direct owner of the Hotel, following its tourist hotel vocation, has decided to undertake in 2021 a total redevelopment of the structure, through an extraordinary restyling, which led the Hotel to become one of the first Green Hotel in town.

Eco hotel in the heart of Montecatini Terme. Through a total redevelopment process we have created an eco-sustainable structure consisting of the following facilities:

• Solar photovoltaic system with a power of 50 kW with total self-consumption of electricity  which meets 30% of our needs;

• Solar thermal system for the production of domestic hot water that meets 70% of our needs;

• Central heating and air conditioning system with new fancoils in the rooms;

• LED lighting system in the whole hotel;

• Home automation system in the rooms that allows access via electronic board and digital temperature control.

All the best technologies and materials were used in the project
