The lift is faux-gold, there was a fake pillar in the room, and mirrors everywhere, including on all of the hotel room doors. The shower spat water out at about... More

No noise reduction from connecting rooms, hall or outside. When the troubadour gets going outside, it's like a live concert in your room. However,... More

With a lot of competition on the main strip you are spoilt for choice in viareggio. We had been recommended this hotel and had a really positive experience with some very friendly and helpful staff. Located at lamppost 25 its location was also on the middle of everything we needed

I had an excellent short break in Viareggio, we had a room that faced the sea, the staff were very friendly, each morning had an excellent cappuccino. The Hotel is a short from all the excellent restaurants and cafes that line the beach.

I stayed at Hotel San Francisco with my wife last week and loved it. We stayed on the top floor in a very spacious and clean room. They offered free wifi which was great and the view of the Mediterranean sea was amazing. Complimentary breakfast was delightful and there was convenient parking in front of the hotel. Very pleasant personnel... More

The hotel is just next to the main street at the beach, however nothing is included, no parking, no beach ticket. In the evening, you cannot go the beach anymore. Wrong place if you like to go out in the evening and spend some time. Room and service are ok. Do not ask for recommendations, the direct you not to... More
