Although it was the end of the season (end of October) we had a pleasant week in Viareggio. It was the Grand Hotel's last week before closing and it was, at best, only one third full. It could be a tad eerie walking down those wide echoing corridors at night, a bit like the Overlook Hotel in the movie 'The... More

After spending 8 nights in The Grand Hotel Royal, I can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to others. We were given a lovely spacious room with a beautiful view of the sea. While this is not a modern hotel, the amenities and staff were wonderful. We spend our days wandering through Tuscany and Cinque Terra, and found this location central and... More

I stayed at the Best Western Grand Hotel Royal during the second week of October. I can honestly say it was a fantastic holiday! The hotel certainly was grand. A beautiful and elegant building full of character. Old fashioned but this is as it should be in such a building. I had a single room which was small but clean... More

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel, and returned because of the great stay I had before. We walk to and from the hotel to the train station in 20 to 30 minutes. This is a wonderful hotel to stay at and catch the train to the Cinque Terre, or Pisa, or Carrara or Lucca. The hotel... More

We have just returned from 4 nights at the Grand Hotel Royal at the end of our two week Tuscan adventure. What an impressive hotel with a fabulous presence. From check in to check out you would find it difficult to find fault with the staff, the rooms or the great breakfast. We had a room on the 3rd floor... More

We returned last week from a most enjoyable week in the Grand Royal. It lived up to its reputation in all major respects, especially the staff and the lovely old building in a great location. We asked for certain things in advance and they were provided - many thanks. In October most day tours have ceased but that hardly matters... More
