Stayed at Hotel Ely Viareggio very comfortably, had all necessary items, wifi, aircon, hot power shower, hair dryer, phone, heater, tea coffee, kettle, mini bar, a good breakfast, parking paid inclusive, toiletries etc. we got more than we expected. The patron was especially helpful, drawing out a map for us and highlighting special places to visit. He even paid our... 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...

What exaggeration! But we are only a 2 star, maybe shine because we keep them always clean! Thanks for the compliments, we are waiting again, we are always open! More

The people running the hotel are very good-natured and sympathetic. As an example, when we were the very last breakfast guests, the girl kindly asked if we would need anything from the buffet or if she could clear it, before taking it away. The room we stayed (107) was very airy and beautiful - and even ahd a little balcony... More

Thank you Jan, Your words encourage us to do even better. You were lucky to find one free room that is normally in high demand, but we have other rooms different from each other, both for the price and for adaptability to different needs of guests. Come back to visit and sample our cuisine! Thank you again! More

We stayed on this hotel for 4 days and then followed on our trip to Tuscany but, every now and then we kept talking about how much we wanted to be back there! Well located, such a relaxing environment, friendly people... There are no words to describe how much we felt at home really. I would strongly recommend that you... More

I'd not really heard of Viareggio before, but was given a tip that it makes a good base for exploring Tuscany and many other attractions nearby. This charming little hotel, run by a family who have all worked in other hotels in the past, is in a perfect location only a couple of minutes walk from the seafront - ask... More

This family run hotel deserve more than their 2 star rating. We found this little gem by accident during our travel around Europe, we fell in love with this wonderfully family who cannot do enough to make you feel welcome.

I'm always embarrassed to respond to so good reviews. It's seems to be "suggested", but it is not. I realized that they would have left a very good feedback when, prior to departure, they gave us a box of deliciuous chocolates. I am convinced that we have not treated them better than other customers, maybe we were just more dedicated... More

I stayed at the Ely Hotel in Viareggio 2 nights during Xmas Holidays, and booked 2 rooms. Everything exceeded our expectation, and I can only reiterate the positive impressions of other travelers who posted their reviews. The rooms we were allocated were very nice, with high ceilings, spacious and clean. Location wise it is perfect, and I can only imagine... More
