I stayed here for the first time in September 2014 for 2 weeks and found it very friendly, clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and spoke english. The breakfast was exceptional plently to chose from and could go back as many times as wanted. The waiter came on a morning with the evening menu and translated it to... More

I stayed one night recently in August, room was spotlessly clean, travelled with husband and two daughters 10 and 12. Airconditioning in the room was a dream in the italian heat at night. Breakfast was nothing special but the location is amazing and I would definately go back to both the hotel and beach resort.

I wouldn't recommend it. Rooms are dirty and small, no good morning cleaning at all, smell from the toilet does not disappear; they leave the safe at the reception OPENED while they're speaking to the guests, checking mail etc. Don't be surprised if your things are stolen from there one day... Staff does not speak even English fluently. So, the... More

Second trip to viareggio. Family room, excellent with an anteroom for little one with two twin beds. Previously stayed at Tirrenia around the corner so this is a comparison of two 3 star hotels. Tirrenia more modern but rooms smaller, wifi in T was free, expensive in Garden. No cooked option for breakfast (did have this in Tirrenia). Hotel a... More

the room was basic, not very clean. The bathroom smelt bad when we arrived but it did disappear after first day, the shower cubicle was dirty, the wash basin was cracked. The breakfast was adequate but the evening meal was not very good, we where offered veal 3 nights out of 5 with cold veg every night, which I suspect... More

Room No.105 with Balcony. Room very basic with chipped furniture,dirty shower curtain.Fitted hairdryer hanging from wall, broken. Toilet seat chipped and very unhygienic. Balcony in a disgraceful state with rust and two old plastic chairs. We had a lot of water come in after a shower of rain as the balcony doors did not close 100%.We had to ask for... More

My husband and I booked this hotel early so received a fair price including breakfast. We stayed for a full week and were pleased with our choice. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Our room was extremely clean! Our room was nice and bright with a large window overlooking the side street. The water pressure in the shower was... More

This was an excellent hotel choice; it provided everything my group of friends needed. It's less than a ten minute walk from the train station, it is perfectly located in the heart of tons of cute stores, cafes and restaurants and only steps from the beach. It is beautifully and cleverly decorated, making it's essentially basic nature seem nothing short... More

Garden Hotel boasts a 3-star rating but this is deceptive, a 2 stars would be more appropriate. I would say the acquarium in the lobby is suggestive of what you are going to find in the hotel: it is an old tank filled with muddy water with no fish in it! Some parts of the hotel must have been revamped... More

The bathroom is the same that was in the 80's. Dirty, narrow and uncomfortable. Good space in the room with new furniture but irrritating when there are 2 single bed just push together instead a double bed or a big mattress on the top. There is no wi-fi signal in the room and parking is not included but it cost... More
