This is a great hotel in a brilliant location having the beach 3 minutes away at one end of the street and the park about the same distance at the other end. The railway station is approx 20 minutes walk. You can catch the service bus directly from Pisa airport to a few metres from the hotel. Our room was... More

Thanks so much for treating us so well over our wk long visit. The balcony was great :) really appreciated the timetables for transport, directions, suggestions for things to do and excellent recommendations for places to eat. Very handy to have free wifi.

Great value, amazing location, and very quiet even though you are so close to the promenade (which is also a plus!). The hospitality is some of the best I've ever received and I would definitely return some day if in the area. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

Of course in an Italian hotel a guest is expected to be satisfied in all. But I think it is not easy to find the Manchester United fans in Viareggio! For your next visit I will certainly let you find the poster of Sir Fergusson! Thanks for the feedback and see you next visit to Italy! More

Anyone looking for good clean accommodation at fair rates should consider the Hotel Ely. We stayed three nights and the 20 minute walk to the station gave us quick access to Florence (under 2 hours),Pisa on the way back and Cinque Terre the next day. The breakfast is sensational but it is the family that makes the stay so enjoyable.... More

Thank you for your comment. The water that you have found is due to the weather this year has not helped much! All our rooms have air conditioning that solves the problem, the rooms in the mansion by situarte have very high ceilings and the problem does not occur. We look forward to more! More

Carlo and his family run a very friendly hotel. They have modern and classical rooms in a traditional building just a stones throw from the beach.

Hotel Ely is a classical building which doesn't necessarily have the most modern of features some people would prefer. However the welcome could not be bettered.

We would recommend this place. It has only 2 stars but is better than some 3star hotels. The people here are gentle and helpfull. Breakfast is nice and it's located very close to the sea. The only downsize was the room, in which the air was a bit moist.

Thank you for your kind comment. Unfortunately, you've come to in a period of continuous rain and humidity, a few steps from the beach, is felt. Our rooms are equipped with air conditioners and dehumidifiers, many of our bathrooms have a window, the others have the air intake system. See you again! More
