I stayed in this hotel for two nights and had a wonderful stay. The room was extremely clean and well furnished and there was a lovely terrace with sea view. I would definitely book to stay there again. The breakfast was also very good and the service attentive.

Located just across the road at Marina di Massa, Excelsior is value for money for beach lovers. Staff was helpful in suggesting ways to get to Pisa though they were not sure which bus would take me to Massa Centro. Stayed 2 nights. Breakfast offering was limited but tasty. Could not get sea view room as it was peak summer... More

We just came back from our summer vacation on Marina di Massa where we stayed for 7 nights at this hotel. We went more for the area, Tuscany being one of the greatly praised areas in Italy. The hotel was chosen based on two factors: 1. it was a good price in comparison to other similar accommodations in the area... More

We stayed there during a business trip and upgraded to an ocean view room - well worth it. We had a nice balcony and large bathroom with plenty of windows. Unfortunately it was too cold to enjoy really the outdoors due to lots of rain, but I would recommend this upgrade to anyone staying here.

Spent the passing of the old year into the new at this hotel. As much as the welcoming staff resembles the outside of the hotel, a bit dry, starchy and cold, the inside is much different. Lounge area more welcoming than one would have thought, the rooms are functional and very clean, beds very comfortable, that you don't lose the... More

Pleasant enough, but looks better in their photos. For example the swimming pool is at the front next to the main road, and although there is a high wall not the most pleasant. Only stayed two nights out of season on business so wasn't using it anyway. Breakfast typical continental buffet style, adequate. Nice bar area, quiet but pleasant lady... More

It looked really great! Delightful beach bar with wonderful minimal music, good drinks and comfortable sunbeds. Everything tidy and clean. It makes positive wibrations. I came back totally rest. Adequate for the price. I definitely recommend.

If you are looking for the typical Italian beach vibe, then this hotel is a good choice. If you are looking for something more reserved, this is absolutely the wrong idea. Unfortunately, we were looking for the latter, booked last minute for one night and were quite dissapointed. The rooms are clean and, although not modern, in decent shape. The... More
