Ideal B & B hotel; Reception staff very friendly and helpful with guidance around Tuscany. Room kept very clean by maid. Erico in the dining room proved to be a real source of entertainment and warmth.

The hotel is bright and sunny. The decor is cheerful. The dining room is airy and spacious. The breakfast was expansive. The cleaning staff was incredibly friendly and solicitious. The hotel management was always courteous and friendly. The location is wonderful, near the beach and shops. We arranged a reserved spot at the Elisabetta beach, which the hotel recommended. It...

Spent two nights here, before heading to Florence. We hadn't booked ahead as we wanted to find a good spot, a nice beach, and see what kind of a deal we could negotiate. The exterior isn't anything special, and when you enter the lobby, the dated decor could scare you off. The staff are very friendly and helpful though, we... More

My friend and I were doing a Euro trip together and we chose to go to Viareggio and loved it!! It is very romantic(for couples) but still lots of nice people, cute shops and yummy restaurants. Very authentic place to visit. The rooms are very clean, comfortable beds, right on the main promenade looking over the beach. I travelled all... More

Viareggio is wonderful city, great beach and sea. Its 25 minutes to Pisa, by train, which is great and well worth a day. However its 2 hours... More

I spent a week at this hotel and had a fantastic stay. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, Gian Lucca and Gabriele among others. This hotel is very clean and in a perfect location on the promenade. I paid €70 a night for a good size single room with a balcony and a great sea view. Breakfast was very... More

Located right on the main strip. Smaller hotel with about 3 floors. You have to pickup and drop off room key upon leaving and entering the hotel (it was actually pretty good do you don't have to hold the key) The staff was nice. They offered a nice continental breakfast each morning. The rooms were decent and clean.

The Hotel is tiny and beds are short by any means for any grown up man. But it is well located, and the staff are very friendly and helpful, I left a ring there and they returned it within a week.
