We have just returned from a holiday at this hotel. We were a party of nine and everyone thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The position, food and staff were all first class. Special mention must be made of our waiter Daniele who was excellent. We would highly recommend this high class hotel to anyone wishing to visit this area. Sheila Webster

Having stayed here a number of times yet not having been in the past six year ! I was a little apprehensive . However from the minute we arrived the welcome assured us that nothing had changed. Same tranquil setting of opulence and relaxation with comfort and service to match. We look forward to returning again.

I loved the Grand Hotel Viareggio as it was very much like the fictional hotel featured in the 2014 film The Grand Hotel Budapest starring Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Jude Law, Bill Murray etc. The building stands proudly on the seafront and is a 15 minute walk on the flat from the railway station which provides excellent links along the...

I have just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel/resort with my wife and 4 year old daughter. The hotel deserves its 'Grand Hotel Royal' name, as although there are some cracked tiles and crumbly plaster, the hotel has style and shows the glory of its history as one of the oldest hotels on the strip, and its...

Dear Guest, can we joke with you?? We cannot control the temperature of the sea! Sorry!!! Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear that your daughter struggled with the italian food but unfortunately we do only have one menu for adults and children which is, in fact, quite extensive and caters for every requirement. The hotel does... More

We have been to Viareggio many times before but the first time here in the Grand. And we would happily stay again. We were on a half board basis for a week. The breakfast was good, fine selection of foods, lots of fresh fruit, breads cheese and meats etc. If you are on half board you select your evening meal... More

Our family had a magnificent trip to Viareggio and this was mainly due to the fantastic hotel and staff at the Grand Hotel Royal. Upon arriving in Pisa we were met by the hotel chauffeur and then once we had transferred from the airport to the hotel we were met by the hotel porters and reception staff who were all... More

We're not sure how many times we've stayed at the Grand but our previous visit was in 2009. I'm very happy to report that it's as good as ever and now with WiFi (although a little temperamental). Recognised lots of staff from previous visit and enjoyed our stay immensely. Hope to be back in a couple of years.

Viareggio weather in late August was hot but very pleasant. The Grand Hotel Royal is a magnificent period property located on the seafront with a swimming pool, restaurant and grand bar! The pick up from Pisa airport by the hotel car was efficient, hassle free and quick. We were greeted warmly by the receptionist and were allocated a sea facing... More
