This hotel looks stunning from the outside and has an interesting history. In fact it is the most beautiful along the whole promenade. We stayed here for a week in room 227 - paying £230 per night for a large corner room with space for 3 to share (paid extra for our 9 yr old who slept on a large... More

My wife and I spent a week at this beautiful hotel on the promenade. It is a stunning building outside and inside, built in the early 1920s, yet typically of Italian hotels, has a Baroque feel to it. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast and dinner restaurants stunning. You can eat each evening in the garden... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. All the staff were excellent,at the reception,the pool manager/lifeguard,and in the dining room. The bedroom and bathroom were a generous size,clean and functional. Breakfast was very good,with an extensive choice. The large swimming pool and gardens were very pleasant. Congratulations to the manager and staff for this well run hotel.

We spent a wonderful 5 nights in the Grand Royal to celebrate our silver wedding. We were upgraded to the Burlamacco suite which was a delight with views of the sea and the mountains, the hotel were also kind enough to leave a bottle of prosecco in the room on the date of our anniversary which was another thoughtful touch....

We have found this hotel by chance and so happy we did! The atmosphere, the decor, service makes you feel like you are part of the movie. Great Gatsby that is!

My husband and I must returned from a week in the Grand Hotel and absolutely loved it. Its a great old world gem directly across from the beach and well situated along the main promenade.

This is our second visit to the Royal Grand five years after the first and we weren't disappointed. it's a lovely hotel with that feeling of old fashioned tranquillity and good service that we often hanker after but never seem to find. Like an ocean liner cruising along in the golden age of cruising! The staircase from the entrance foyer... More

This is a beautiful hotel with nice gardens and a swimming pool. The rooms are nice and roomy with tea and coffee facilities. The hotel is centrally located with the bus stop to Lucca literally at the corner of the hotel. We had a very good stay here but - and I hate to say this - I think the... More

Our second visit to this lovely hotel lived up our expectations. It's been compared to the fading but regal beauty of a grand dame, and I would agree - its prominent position overlooks the Viareggio promenade, its pretty terraces and gardens are prefect for evening drinks, its luxurious art nouveau interior suggests its history. The rooms are all very unique... More

This was our second stay in this hotel. The rooms are a nice size. We paid the extra for a superior room with a sea view. We were on the 5th floor and the view was wonderful and we even had a jacuzzi bath (although they are not in all rooms). It's a wonderful period hotel with a lovely outdoor... More
