Hotel Ely is a classical building which doesn't necessarily have the most modern of features some people would prefer. However the welcome could not be bettered. The hotel is run by a young couple who work very hard and pull out all the stops to ensure their guests are comfortable and happy. Nothing is too much trouble. The location is... More

We would recommend this place. It has only 2 stars but is better than some 3star hotels. The people here are gentle and helpfull. Breakfast is nice and it's located very close to the sea. The only downsize was the room, in which the air was a bit moist.

Thank you for your kind comment. Unfortunately, you've come to in a period of continuous rain and humidity, a few steps from the beach, is felt. Our rooms are equipped with air conditioners and dehumidifiers, many of our bathrooms have a window, the others have the air intake system. See you again! More

We spent three nights at the Ely Hotel and would recommend this hotel to other travellers. This family run hotel is incredibly friendly and welcoming. Staff could not have been more helpful e.g. booking taxi's, helping us to find an Internet cafe and suggesting restaurants. It is in a central location near to the beach and shops. The building itself... More

Wow!Thank you very much for your kind feedback. Our aim is always to anticipate guests needs and make the stay one to remember.

Ely is in the perfect location for the beach and the main strip of restaurants and shops with it being at the end of a short road. The hosts are lovely and friendly and very helpful, advising us on nice restaurants and places to visit (Lucca is a must, only 15 minutes on the train from here) Our room was... More

Thanks to the favorable opinion. Our position is strategic, not only the sea and the pine forest are a step away, but also important historic towns such as Lucca, Pisa, Pietrasanta, Carrara are easily reached within minutes by train or car. Forte dei Marmi attracts for its shops and jet set. The Cinque Terre can be reached even with a... More

We stayed at Ely Hotel and loved it! The rooms were clean and well kept. The owners were kind and helpful. Parking is not free but very cheap. The beach is a block away! You do have to pay to use the beach. But it is worth it :)

Thank you for the positive feed back. The beaches with payment are one of the most frequent complaints of our foreign guests but then also appreciate their cleanliness and service that the scripts are provided. In Viareggio we have f reebeaches, which are non so close to the hotel, only a little less comfortable to reach. More

After staying in Rimini, we were absolutely amazed by arriving in Viareggio and Hotel Ely. The main avenue in Viareggio is just gorgeous, with different beautiful houses. The hotel was little and cozy, just half a block away from the main avenue and half a block from the park. The room had older furniture, but it was all stylish. Huge... More

From the moment you stroll in you feel welcomed and well looked after. Cheap parking - 3 euro a day - is offered. Rooms have character. Staff go the extra mile to help with planning food, transport etc Will be back next year. Thanks very much. More than a 2*

Increasingly guests ascribe to us higher value than on the two-star category, but we prefer to keep the two stars and give a positive surprise to those who come to visit us. We also look forward to your suggestions, they help us a lot! More

The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean, large and comfy bed! Shower was a bit small though, but we were passing through.. The location is perfect. Right near the beach. Great pricing for all of this. Would definatly reccoment this hotel!

Thank you friends, our third star is the sun drawn in the hotel's logo! The welcome and friendliness that we reserve for our guests is motivated by the fact that we love our work and what excites us is to see you really satisfied! See you again! More

A grand hotel! Reminds me of the big Edwardian hotels in St Anne's and Blackpool I visited with my parents in the 50s and 60s. Lovely big rooms, everything works and Viareggio is much smarter than I had expected. Great shops and a fantastic beach. This was our stop off on the way from Amalfi to Provance, but we liked...
