“Excellent hotel and a great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stayed at the Hotel Tirrenia for a week from 16th Sept and had a great holiday. The hotel was excellent, Viareggio was varied and interesting - as well as the beachfront there's a thriving port and local fishing boats, there were buses and trains in easy walking distance and the weather in mid-Sept. was fine and sunny but not overpoweringly hot.

The Tirrenia is a small, very stylish, family-run hotel where everyone was very helpful and friendly and the standards of room, breakfast and service were excellent. We had a first floor room with balcony overlooking Via San Martino and a view down to the main boulevard and sea. The street is busy and can be noisy during the day but it's in the heart of town and we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony watching the world go by. There is a small supermarket round the corner and plenty of good restaurants close by with a recommended list supplied by the hotel. The private beach is a short stroll away: you pay to get in and for chairs and umbrella (~14 euros I think it was for two of us) which includes a discount as hotel residents: the hotel supplies a beach bag and towels. Luca was most helpful in lending us a guide book and map, a plug adaptor for our kettle, and cups.

Pisa, Lucca and other parts of Tuscany are within reach by train or bus. We got the bus from and to Pisa Airport: a cheap transfer with a single fare of 3 euros for a journey of just under an hour. Just make sure at the airport that you spot the right bus: it wasn't at the advertised stand and we were lucky that a local Italian boy found it and shouted to ask if anyone else was going to Viareggio just in time for us to get on before the bus left.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week and would love to go back and stay at the Tirrenia again.

Just returned from week stay at Hotel Tirrenia. Great location, 1 min walk to beach & promenade, 10-15 mins to train station. Great service at the hotel, very helpful, friendly and professional staff. Helped with train times and recommending restaurants - all of which were good. Hotel is very clean and bright.
Marvellous choice for breakfast, lots of fresh fruit as well as selection of cereals, eggs, ham and bacon etc.
This is a great b &b hotel - have no hesitation in recommending it!
Viareggio is a good location for visiting Pisa, lucca, Siena or Florence as trains run regularly to all.
Can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Room 311 was a nice size with balcony and double shower. Great to have a fridge in the room as well.

Great location with very friendly helpful staff. Close to the beach, restaurants and shops. First class breakfast. Excellent value for money and will stay here again. Receiption staff very welcoming and gave lots of tips.

Room Tip: A room to the back might be a bit quieter but we enjoyed sitting out on the small balcony.

Good: Very clean,cosy and fresh, free internet (but a bit slow), not far from the sea and main shopping street, quiet, good breakfast, friendly hostess.

BUT NOT GOOD: the 4th floor rooms have very low ceilings, impossible not to hit your head, makes it absolutely uncomfortable staying in the room... The hotel is not situated at the beach, as the photo shows, the hotel reservates money on your account, and even after some time, when you have paid for your stay, they don't return money for a long time.

Room Tip: Don't take the 4th flor rooms, to low ceiling

suricati, Proprietario at Hotel Tirrenia, responded to this review, September 24, 2012
Thank you for your valuable opinion and especially for having chosen us beteewn a large selection of 120 hotels/B&B in Viareggio!
We can not choose or judge the customers ..... but above all, do not force anyone to book the our cheapest rooms ! The descriptions and photos through our website, where you booked, are very clear , right and detailed .
We believe that our property has unfortunately been
chosen from you only for the price (lowest price avaiable for a good hotel with a lot of free service included ) and not paying as much attention to all descriptions and location too !! Why on you arrive have not asked if it was possible to make an up grade room?
It is also very clear on the booking online, you agree , that we ask always a pre-authorization on the credit card only for the first night and in your case only Euro 70.00 and pre-authorization is valid for 21 days . It' s not a charge so we do not take anything at all and we should not return anything.
We hope that you will remember not only for our hotel's room type but also for all the great breakfasts which benefited from a range of take away from the buffet for your all meals of the day.

Regards
Lazzeretti Luca

This is a gem of a hotel in Viareggio, Italy. The two owners are wonderful and extremely helpful. Pietro speaks some English, while his wife speaks only Italian, but she is friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is immaculate. They have multilingual staff that come on and cover the desk. All the staff was extremely helpful and found us dinner reservations even at a late hour on a weekend. They are located on the block opposite the promenade and beach area. While the beautiful beach is all private, you can get a discount ticket from Hotel Tirrenia to use at the Bertuccelli Beach directly across from Via San Martino the street the hotel is located on. The beach is white sand with calm walm water. They also have bikes available for rental which is great fun as they have a wonderful bike path. They also supply you with a beach bag and beach towels to use at the beach. The breakfast was also excellent. They offered the usual breakfast with the addition of fresh eggs every morning and delicious fruit salad. The location is great near Lucca and also only 35 minutes from La Spezia where you can get the train to the the Cinque Terre. My husband and I will definitely go back to this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

This was our second stay in the Tirrenia hotel and we really enjoyed it!
This hotel really ticks all the boxes:

- very friendly and helpfull staff;
- great location (1 minute from the beach, 15/20 minutes walk from the train station)
- easy to visit Pisa, Lucca etc.
- excellent breakfast with a lot of fresh fruit;
- it's spotless and clean;
- supplementary beach towels and a discount to the Bertucelli private beach (however, please note the private beaches in Viareggio are quite expensive in August - but if you want there is a small area of 'public beach' within 10 minutes walk from the hotel where you don't have to pay but which of course is not as nice and comfortable as the Bertucelli beach);
- free, fast and reliable WIFI
- comfortable room, great shower

If we return to Viareggio we will definately stay again in this hotel!

We loved the Hotel Tirrenia. Our room was a great size, clean and comfortable. We were on the third floor and had a great balcony where we could sit and have a glass of wine and look down toward the sea. The hotel is in a great location. The owners were so helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. We borrowed the bikes one afternoon and went for a long ride down the promenade. Breakfasts were amazing - so much fresh fruit! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony!
