“Best hotel in Viareggio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

The best place to stay in Viareggio!

Based on other reviews I chose this hotel to stay, so I hope it will be useful for other travelers as well.
Family run hotel with cozy atmosphere, everybody was so friendly and helpful, so it was a complete pleasure staying there. Giusy and Georgia are the great ladies, they have best advice regarding everything: starting from what to do around and which beach better to go and what to do in Florence or Pisa, in case you are planning to go there and supply you with the map as well!

The overall experience was fantastic: good breakfast, daily cleaning of the room, good location of the hotel, 2 minutes away from the beach, where you have special rate from this hotel, clean and nice room with a satellite TV.

Thanks again for making my stay such a memorable one!

Room Tip: We were staying in the room on the highest floor with a huge terrace from one side and panoramic win...

Situated close to the beech in the centre of town close to the pine forest/park. The hotel is family run and the hosts know their town. All their restaurant recommendation were excellent although some took some hunting down. The room was spotless and very spacious although draw space was limited. Bed linen and towels changed daily. the rooms also have a small fridge which was also very handy and the owners had no objection to us holding our own drinks in it. The hotel is a little dated but very clean and well presented and has a very warm feel. Another nice touch was the provision of beech towel and a arrangement with one of the private beeches. The breakfast is also worth a mention as it was a amazing - a wide ranging buffet, from a different hot dish each day, through cold meats, cheese, fresh fruit, fresh croissants, cakes, cereals, fruit juice and what ever tea or coffee you fancy,
I have never been to an Italian seaside resort before but I loved the Viareggio experience and I am glad I chose the Hotel Katy.

The hotel is very well-located in the middle of Viareggio just off the promenade in a quiet street. The owners are a lovely couple who are so helpful - their dinner recommendations were particularly good. Breakfast is absolutely amazing - a huge selection of prepared fresh fruit, at least 2 sorts of home made cake, hot option including local specialities, fabulous fresh pastries etc etc etc. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with fresh sheets and fresh fluffy white towels every day. Best was the wonderfully eccentric Michele - man in charge of the coffee machine. Provided us with the best unintentionally hilarious moments since Manuel and his ratatouille.

I have stayed at this family run hotel twice now and will surely be going back. It is lcated in a quiet street just off the main promenade with the start of the pine forest park at the other end of the street. So the hotel offers easy access to both the buzziness of the beaches, retaurants , bars, gelataria's and shops and the quiet of the pine forset park- where bikes can be hired.

The hotel itself has been refurbished in recent years to a very good standard. I have stayed in a double as a single occupant- and a twin room for dual occupationthe latter having a balcony, which was really lovely. The rooms are very comfortable and the air conditioning very good (a must in July). The small fridge is useful and you may buy your own drinks to keep in it- no one objects!

Both times I had breakfast included and was very happy with the selection of " continental breakfast" foods, which always includes lots of lovely fruit and too many nice cakes! Also the small selection of hot breakfast items was welcomed - such as, scrambled eggs & italian bacon - and delicious.

The owners and their staff are very welcoming and hands on and also organised a car to collect me from Pisa airport.

I love Viareggio and I will certainly be staying at the Hotel Katy again in the future.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are all at the front of the hotel and this year I had one and loved being able to...

A short four night break at this hotel was not enough. We enjoyed our stay immensely and the family are so welcoming. The breakfasts were superb and being so close to a marvelous beach was a real bonus. We hope to return soon.

It's rare to find a hotel that has genuinely tried to think of everything possible to make guests' stays so enjoyable and memorable. Run by an enthusiastic family who really care about their guests, Hotel Katy is situated in a quiet street only 50 metres from Viareggio's fascinating and historic promenade. The hotel has been refurbished to a very high standard and is impeccably clean throughout. It offers a breakfast buffet that outclasses many 5 star establishments in the quality and freshness of the food. They will happily make excellent recommendations about local restaurants/sightseeing and will provide beach towels and introduce guests to one of the bathing establishments on the beach. This was such a great experience that we will definitely be booking for next year!

This perfectly situated hotel is run by the most darling family. Rooms were perfect size. We had lovely little balcony we could see the sea from. We were in walking distance to everything!! The passeggiata along the beach which is lined with shops and restaurants. The breakfast in the morning is amazing!! Wonderful cut up fruit, home made baked goods, yummy cafe!! I highly recommend this hotel!!!
