This was our second visit to Viareggio and our second stay in Hotel President. We liked it the first time around, and liked it even better this time - more services have been included in the price. Most staff were the same as the last time, and again the service was first class. It's located near the beach, and there are many excellent restaurants in walking distance. The hotel receptionists will place restaurant bookings, at no charge even though this means you're taking your money elsewhere.
We asked for the same room as before, by email shortly after reserving, and that's what we got.
The décor is a bit old fashioned, you'll either love or hate the ground floor light fittings.
The hotel has no pool or gardens, but it appears that in Viareggio these are the preserve of 5 star hotels. Bagnos Irene and Balena offer beach services to the hotel clients, for which there is a charge. Irene is just across the road and is family-run, we found it a friendly place to visit with good service at the bar/restaurant.
We made good use of the free wifi (President and Irene).
Given all that, Hotel President is excellent value for money, and it deserves a 4 star plus rating. We will be back.
