      Friendly staff - Even though I booked the wrong date ( I arrived 1 day early !) The Manager and Staff resollved it without drama .

      Very small bathroom

      The situation! Ideal for day trips to many areas including Florence but a motor vehicle is a must. The promenade is fabulous and wonderful for evening strolls. The breakfast was the best we had on our 3 week trip. This accommodation was the very best of our trip. We shall definitely try to visit again and would highly recommend this establishment.

      Dinner. Not good value for money. Beter to be had along the promenade and even at the harbour.

      Great location and nice room (for the price which was around 150dollars)

      Poor staff: 1. Reception was not very professional 2. We were seated outdoors in the evening without being served (despite the waitress passed by several times)

      Fantastic location 50 metres from a fabulous beach. Traditional hotel kept in its original state of the time condition. Pool area and gardens excellently kept with a pool bar open all day. All over a bit of a find and would definitely return.

      Reception staff. It costs nothing to smile!!!

      The hotel is in a great location, right on the promenade in Viareggio. The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfast buffet is great and the gardens and pool area are lovely.

      Staying off-season (but enjoying hot weather) we were given better rooms than expected. All rooms are spacious with high ceilings and small balconies. We had a side facing room but also a view of the beach. The hotel is probably for older people but it is elegant enough for a romantic break. We were glad to be visiting in October when there are virtually no other hotels open and could enjoy the pool and beach without the mayhem that must surely be present in July. The resort offers little to do or see but thee are excursions along the coast and mountains that would make this a good base. We were finishing our holiday here after Pisa and Lucca so just used the hotel to relax for two days before heading home.

      The hotel was great. It was clean, staff (almost universally) wonderful, well maintained, nice pool and lounges. Would definitely go back!!

      A pity about one member of the reception staff who let the whole side down because of her unfriendly attitude. She should enrol on a course at a Charm School, and if she already has done should seek a refund.

      The best thing was the location,and the staff were very nice,but I would not stay there again.

      Hotel bar was very unappealing,music was very low or non existent due to the stone floor,all day and night I could hear the people walking above my room,this kept me awake for many hours at night.The pool was shut for service,but still no place nice to sit in the garden,only the front where the hotel supplied the worse garden chairs ever! Beds not comfortable or inviteing to look at and not extra blankets in room,as we were cold in april so slept in extra clothes.

      Beautiful building, got free upgrade to a suite (actually a bigger room with a terrac). Rooms are fine for a 4star hotel. Friendly informal staff. Good parking facility.

      Swimming pool is outdated. Quite expensive for a four star

      Excellent overall most staff friendly and helpful rooms and location great

      Only criticism is 1 or 2 staff members at reception quite rude and unhelpful

      • Average rating
    • Older travelers

      The location was central and just across road from beach,rooms were large and airy,breakfast was good with fine choice,the swimming pool was cleanand well managed and cared for,

      I think the reception staff could do with some happy pills and empathy towards guests.we reported an infuriating noise coming from ceiling in bedroom but they seemed to be aware but played the "no understand" explanation but I was sure this was not first time such has been reported
