We ended our two-week tour of Italy here, with a four night stay. The hotel was deliberately chosen so as to give us some R&R following a fairly hectic schedule. We were not disappointed. Excellent value (the week before Easter). Spacious room, good bathroom, useful dressing room area; all spotlessly clean. The staff are all very professional, and both the... More

I loved this hotel - I could almost go 5! We were there during off season so it was very quite, we chose to stay in Viareggio instead of Florence to get away from the crowds and take the train to in. We had an ocean view balcony room with an amazing view. The hotel is very old but has... More

Dear Guest, thank you. I agree with your decision to stay in Viareggio and take train to Florence is very good choice.easy, cheaper and convenient. Yes, sea view balcony room is one of the must requested, little bit exspensive but is a very good choice to enjoy the wonderful view of the Tirrenian sea! Hope to welcome you once again... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife for just one night in May. The receptionist was helpful to tell me the way to several destinations. The room was spacious and the bed was very soft and good for me. The cost was 140EUR for one night and 15 EUR for parking. A bit more expensive than other hotels around... More

This hotel is lovely, with a huge foyer and grand staircase. The rooms are spacious, there is a huge variety of delicious food for breakfast, and the location is just perfect with the mountains behind, and the sea just in front of the hotel. It is very picturesque, with lots to see and do. The staff are pleasant and helpful.... More

If you like old fashioned hotels you will love this place. Lots of class and beautiful furnishings. I loved it but probably wouldn't appeal to everyone. The staff were extremely friendly and the staff on the front desk very helpful. Dinner in the evenings was very formal and probably could be a bit more relaxed in this day and age... More

During our five week tour of Italy we mainly stayed in B&Bs and small apartments/houses-this was one of our rare hotel stays, and we were so impressed! The Grand Hotel Royal has an important location on the beach front boulevard of Viareggio-close to some of the best restaurants and train station. We used the hotel as our headquarters for day...

We were so surprised that such a beautiful old palace is now a best western! Beautiful lobby and dining room and very friendly (and helpful) staff.
