“Nice hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Nice hotel. Be sure to request the rooms with the bath over the shower as they have nicer bathrooms. Breakfast is okay and the hotel is good value for the area. There is a small free beach just a short walk south of the hotel at the end of the promenade. The area is no cinq terre though. the water at the beaches is cloudy and not that nice Mediterranean blue I am used to from other parts of Italy. So don't expect any snorkeling. On the plus side you can walk many kilometers across the private beaches.

The staff are friendly and the bus station is right next door for day trips to Pisa or Lucca.

Room Tip: Room with bath vs shower. Baths have showerhead as well and are bigger

The area itself is very expensive. A lovely place to visit and walk around. We were here in height of season and it was "comfortable" busy. We arrived from Pisa by train and got taxi to hotel. Very friendly welcome and checked in quickly to our rooms. Quaint old style lift to rooms.
Room is big, bright and airy. Large window that opened up to balcony . We were at side of hotel and when sit out morning or afternoon you can enjoy sea views. With walking distance of beach, cafes, lovely places to have dinner in the middle of busy atmosphere of streets. Shops open till late which is nice for a stroll before and after dinner. These shops are expensive such as Guess, Benneton etc however away from the prom local shops can be found!
Beach is fab, very well kept however beach is divided into private sections which a fee is due if one wants to sit... As a lot of people tour from here not many spend the full day here!
We visited Lucca on train when here, fab little town with regular train service! Lovely walk around town and on town wall!!
We went from here to Florence and again train service excellent!!
Dining room was lovely and breakfast very satisfactory!!
This hotel is worth a visit when touring the Tuscan region!

The location of this hotel is great since it's right on the beach. The only downfall is that this area seemed to be a bit noisy. We were here over Carnivale and we spent the first night listening to a super charged leaf blower that was used to clean up the confetti. Maybe we shouldn't have requested a waterview room...

Our room was small, but clean and seemed bigger with the high ceiling. The bathroom only had a shower (no tub), but it worked out fine and for the price was great. The breakfast was much better then we expected. They offered a spread of fresh fruit, cheese, pastries, crackers, and even a lot of packaged items if you were on the run.

We didn't need the staff for much, but they were always friendly and eager to help. Overall it was a decent stay at a clean hotel.
