On arrival the service was seamless. The Reception staff were efficient and very helpful. Our room was stunning (a suite with a sea view) and we instantly relaxed and our holiday began. The location was unbelievable, probably the most central to the activity of Viareggio with the hotel's beach area within a stones throw. On days that we did not... More

Fantastic holiday. Staff were lovely. Hotel was clean and the poolside. Cannot wait to return. We will be returning on out honeymoon. The food was beautiful. Book with a balcony because the sea view is lovely. Mountains at the back.

I had been to Viareggio 20 years ago with a friend and had a great time. Really loved it, so decided to go back and stay at a 4 star hotel with my family. We booked with Citilia and had a prompt pick up from the airport in a lovely car. We arrived late in the evening and the staff... More

I cannot fault this hotel, it is in the middle of the resort, 100yds from the beach, clean, friendly & helpful staff. The hotel reminds me of an old fashioned english hotel that you'd find in East Bourne or Brighton. The pool area is nice with lots of sunbeds, you didn't seem to have to be up at 7am to... More

We have just returned from a 1 week holiday at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Viareggio was not like other Italian destinations we have visited but grew on us within a few days. Art deco buildings are wonderful, beach very clean and well kept and great for strolling and people watching! Lots of Italian bling! The hotel was good.... More

My wife and I have just returned from a 15 day holiday specifically 'tailored' for us by Citalia through Thompson. We spent 5 nights in Sorrento, 4 in Rome and 5 in Viareggio. Air flights, private car pick-ups and first class rail tickets all arranged by Citalia and all went without a hitch - a great holiday. About Best Western... More

I am a pretty frequent traveller to Italy, mainly in the Winter for sking, city breaks etc and have just returned from an 11 day vacation to Tuscanny. The holiday was self organised and stayed at the Grand Hotel Royal on a B&B basis. From the moment of arrival to departure I could not fault a single thing about the... More
