The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was very nicely done. Especially loved the coffee machine. Freshly ground beans in any style coffee you want. The bedroom was clean and basic. Very hard to navigate foot of bed as it was verrrrry close to wall. We had a "suite" with an extra bed(cot?) in the living area.... More

The hotel is in a very good location and has been renovated in the recent past. We were pleasantly surprised by the standard offered for the price, from arriving at reception which was business like and helpful to sitting at the bar through breakfasts and checking out the standard remained. Well worth looking at if you are staying in the... More

I'm very very unhappy to give this rate ! The location makes the hotel an ideal spot for visiting Viareggio (it's located on the beautiful beach promenade) or for visiting hinterland and Versilia coast (it's easy reachable from the motorway). There's no reserved parking, but around the hotel it's easy to have a free or toll parking : at the... More

The atout is the possibility to have access, paying a bit more, to the beach and swimming pool etc of Principe di Piemonte resort and to have a bike for moving in Viareggio. This is ideal to take a few days of rest when summer begins as I did. Unfortunately prices are a bit high in the summer period.

Small discutions at check in regarding the type of room booked. After two days we were receiving what we were reserved. I stress the fact that the staff was very friendly at all times. I will remember the dinner-excellent chef and personal. Nice.

We spent a week during the summer in this hotel and liked it a lot. Food was great with lots of choices. The room was big and we had a room for ourselves with the kids sleeping next door. That was good. Furthermore, the hotel is well situated in the centre of ViaReggio. Finally, not unimportant, the people at the... More

We loved the location of the hotel and the great service....lovely touch offering drinks and nibbles free if charge during the day. The staff never objected to the children taking handfuls of nuts and chippies.... We hired bikes which were fantastic for biking along the great promenade of Vioreggio.....great breakfast was on offer and parking on street parking included.
