We have just returned from a 10 night stay at this hotel. It is a stylish, elegant hotel with plenty of character unlike some of the modern hotels. The Royal has a great location just across the road from the wonderful promenade and beach at Viareggio.
Our room was very clean and spacious with a sea view. The food at the hotel was also very good. The breakfast buffet had a wide choice available- more than we have usually found in Italian hotels. The evening meal had a good choice available also and the quality was very good.
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and most could speak English very well.
To the rear of the hotel is a lovely swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds available. There is also a lovely shady garden to sit and relax in.
Viareggio is a smart stylish resort. It is expensive to sit on the beach but luckily our holiday package included this. It is easy to travel by train to Florence or Lluca and the local buses stop right outside the hotel.
This was our first visit to The Grand Hotel Royal but we shall certainly return soon.
