Travelers' Choice
This storied luxury hotel on the seafront promenade in Viareggio is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Built in the early 1920s, restored to the height of its charm in 2004 after 19 months' refurbishment work, today the Principe is without doubt one of the world's most exclusive and refined historical hotels. The 102 rooms, including 19 suites, on five floors decorated in different styles, represent an ideal cross-section of elegant hospitality over the ages, through to the contemporary design of the sun-drenched rooftop swimming pool. The "Piccolo Principe" and "Regina" restaurants have also made their own contribution to the renown built up over the years by the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte in Viareggio. The Two-starred Michel restaurant "Piccolo Principe" offers sophisticated cuisine against the magnificent backdrop of the panoramic roof garden, where guests dine in summer, while the "Regina" restaurant offers traditional Tuscan fare.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and allowing us to explain the situation in the hopes of clarifying this for everyone. I have personally looked into the issue and can see that after your initial complaint about noise in your room you were moved to another room with our apologies to allow us to investigate the issue. The second room was also not to your liking and we offered a free upgrade to a higher category room which you refused and wanted to leave due to the cold and rainy weather. At this point our colleagues advised you that your booking was non refundable and offered you a complimentary upgrade which you refused saying that if you did not receive a refund on your non-refundable booking which you wanted to cancel due to the weather conditions you would post negative reviews about our Hotel. As a gesture of goodwill again we reduced the penalty to only one night rather than the rest of the week. In regards to the temperature at breakfast, again due to the unseasonable cold snap that we had it is possible that it was cooler than normal however we did not receive any other complaints from in-house guests. I thank you again for your review which we rely on to improve our services and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to explain hotel policies when it comes to unjust claims that we are not liable for.

not really a 5 star hotel, but with 5 star prices. The Good: (a) Probably the best appointed hotel in Viareggio in terms of style and interior. The rooms are smart, although ours did not have a bath which was surprising, given it as a superior double. (b) the COVID measures were strong but unobtrusive and without doubt all staff were friendly and spoke excellent English. (c) the roof top area is great with stunning views and a lovely plunge pool within which to cool down on hot days and the roof top bar is a great place to have a drink. Bad (a) the WIFI is poor - which is very frustrating and certainly not part of a 5 star package. (b) the service was intermittent at best at meals (although always friendly). Food arrived sometimes cold in the evening and had to be sent back and the HB menu was limited and never changed for the week we were there. (c) the drain in our bathroom smelt and this was not addressed by the room staff. (d) Room service was hugely expensive - 52 Euros for two toasties and Cokes!! Overall, pricey and not really a 5 star hotel. Finally, as a general aside, if the weather is not great (obviously not the hotel's fault), there is not much to do in Viareggio. Dont think we will be back.

Thank you very much for taking the time to submit your review and to give us your feedback. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed most aspects of your stay and I would like to apologise for the negatives which I can assure you are due to the current situation with the pandemic causing delays and logistical problems. Viareggio, and Versilia as a whole, is one of the most unique beach destinations nature wise and we are lucky enough to be within about an hour’s drive from some of the most marvellous cultural sites in the world including Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre and our staff is always available to organise outings to these destinations and even further on the occasional rainy day or when our guests simply want to take a break from the beach. Thank you once again for your review. Grazie e arrivederci

The best night's sleep I've had in ages! The room was exquisite and the staff unobtrusive yet so attentive to our needs. The bar up on the terrace has magificent views of the sea and we will miss the 'aperitivo' during sunset served up with their resident 2 Michelin Star Chef's sublime canapes. I could go on and on..simply thank you to all the staff for making our stay such a memorable one.

We stayed 4 nights at the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte and had the most pleasant stay. The staff was very welcoming and anticipated all our needs. They remembered that I was vegan every morning and as soon as we arrived they already brought special vegan cornetti. The rooms are well appointed and we stayed in a Imperio room with a breathtaking view of the sea. The new Covid measures make you feel at easy, without feeling awkward at any moment. After dinner we enjoyed drinks on the new roof top bar. The two Michelin star restaurant was a highlight of our stay. The tasting menu is a delight and I highly recommend making sure to dine there one night. Special thanks to Mr Longo and his team for making our mini vacation in Viareggio so special. Grazie mille.

This is a lovely hotel, great location with great sea views. This review will be a bit picky as this is a 5 star hotel charging top dolllar. We stayed for 8 nights What we loved - Rooms are a generous size well appointed and we slept really well due to the blackout curtains and comfy beds. We also loved the generous water bottles every night and day. Valet parking is brill as garage and your car is under the hotel so easy to access if you forget something and the roof top pool bar has a great wine list and menu. Staff are super helpful and they all take Covid precautions seriously. There is also an arrangement with a Beach club that works well giving you access to amenities and sun beds etc. What we didn’t like (remember we are being picky) - the WiFi is a bit dodgy - it’s difficult to watch a film on Netflix for example. The concierge although excellent, did surprise us with taxi bills of 70 euros for a restaurant bill of 180 euros. The restaurant il Regina, service was off and we found it a tricky menu. We didn’t try the 2 Michelin star place as there is no detailed menu and it’s predominantly seafood - not something the wife enjoys. Overall a lovely hotel, worth the money and I would revisit and recommend.
