“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Has a good location on the beach front. The room was beautiful, clean with everything you need for a pleasant stay. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It also had a very good restaurant, the choice for breakfast was extensive and they would also accomodate any requests outwith the menu. Of the two beach clubs they recommended the Irene was the nicer of the two.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel would be quiter but there are good view at the front

We stayed at the Hotel President from June 13th to the 20th. Everything about this hotel is great, it is clean, well kept, it has a bar and comfy sitting area, bar man (can't remember his name) very friendly. Reception staff helpful and organised. Waiter/waitress at breakfast very friendly. The hotel is located across the road to the beach, beach attendant welcoming and provided a introduction to the beach/beach bar on first day. Breakfast buffet amazing, lots of choice and something for everyone. Rooms were cleaned daily and lobby and corridors well kept. No complaints about this hotel. The only negatives ( which are not meant as a criticism, and which we knew about before booking) are no pool on site and you have to pay for the beach sun loungers!
Viareggio is a nice resort, food at Casablanca (our favourite) on prom well worth a visit, pizza, seafood and Vino Casa super. Easy access by train to Florence, Pisa and Lucca from Viareggio. Lucca was our favourite.

Just arrived home after being thoroughly spoiled at Hotel President. The staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The cleanliness was second to none, the food fabulous. The bedrooms were lovely and well looked after. The beach was literally just across the road and the beach bar also first class. The beach staff also made sure all our requirements were attended to quickly and efficiently.
Certainly, for us, the best hotel ever. With luck, we'll be back next year as well !!

Room Tip: Lovely view from our room, which was side view (Could see the sea and harbour).

This 4 star hotel on the beach is probably overpriced but looked to be one of the best there. The room we had was a double balcony sea view with king bed - very clean and comfortable.

The bathroom had everything we needed, including quality vanity products and a hair dryer. The breakfast was very, very well appointed with the widest variety we found in the 6 hotels we stayed in while traveling in Italy.

The reception staff were exceptionally friendly and very helpful. The wifi was ok and lifts were a reasonable size and not too slow compared with the norm in that country. They have a couple of private beaches they deal with however you still need to pay extra to access them as the 10 euro entry fee per person is not included in the hefty room rate - I thought that was disappointing.

Overall the hotel is very good, sleep quality was excellent and they catered to every need.

Room Tip: Higher floors have best views. Pay extra for a balcony if you can - a great place to watch the suns...

We just had ten days in Italy and thought Viareggio would be a good base to explore Tuscany so booked a room at the Hotel President. We very quickly realised that rather than just a base it would be the highlight of our holiday. The staff were incredible and made us feel so welcome. The food was excellent, unbelievable choice for breakfast and the evening meals were really first class. Although all the staff were wonderful a special big thank you to Laila and Franco for making the restaurant such a great place to be with their professional attitude and courtesy, but mostly their great sense of fun! Must also mention Nadim the barman, Clara and Tatiana who made breakfast run so smoothly, and of course Christina the chef, whose ravioli in butter and sage should win medals, and tiramisu we will never forget. We felt that we had stayed with friends for our holiday, it was a fantastic hotel which we would recommend to anyone.

Everything about this hotel is excellent except for parking. You get a certificate that allows you parking on the street. If the street that you park on is scheduled for cleaning you have to move your car. Having said that finding a parking place across the street from the hotel is fairly easy as beach goers are constantly coming and going.

Where do I start? The view, the rooms, the cleanliness, the food...it's all great! Such a pleasant high level of comfort. Every time you get such nice surprises. What makes the hotel special though is the staff. They actually seem to love their job. They are so friendly, but also attentive and quick. Even when something very minor is forgotten, it gets solved in no time with a smile. The breakfast is "to die for", what a feast to look forward to every morning. Italian breakfasts are not known to be elaborate, but this one is. All authentic Tuscan cut meats, five (!) local cheeses to choose from and even more relishes to go with it. Prosecco everyday. If you want full English? No problem. If you want your breakfast like at home? No problem either. Again, the waiters are all brilliant greeting you with a smile and serving you breakfast items a la carte as well! You get clean beach towels everyday and little bottles of water. Also the beachclub Irene that works together with the Hotel, upholds the same standard. The Hotel pays for your entry fee. At first I thought it was strange people have to pay for a beach, but now I see the benefits. Everyday the staff cleans the beach thoroughly, there's a lifeguard present all the time, your comfortable beach chairs and parasols are reserved for you everyday, there are clean shower facilities and a nice lunch restaurant and again, all the staff there are very friendly, their friendly greeting when you come and leave, just make the difference.
I guess I could go on forever, but the best thing is, when you're a choosy hotel customer like I am: book this hotel and enjoy a brilliant holiday here!!!

Room Tip: 5th floor corner room, has very best view of sea and boulevard but no (small) balcony or shutters.
