La Viareggina

Reviewed June 28, 2013

I booked this from TA. The location was fine about 10 mins & 10-15Euro from train station. Anna was a perfect host. She cooked us spaghetti vongole as TA comments suggested we try it. We were not disappointed. The room was clean, light and bright. We had a triple room for 2 and appreciated a little space. There is no lift, but Anna was willing to help with luggage up the stairs. We loved our stay of 2 nights. We visited Lucca & Pisa from here. Maybe we should have had an extra day to appreciate Viareggio a bit better.

We chose La Viareggina based on reviews from this and other websites and due to the personal B+B that is was purported to be. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The B+B is only 10 minutes from the train station so is ideal for those travelling around Italy using public transport. It is also only 1 block from the seafront and probably 5-10 minutes from the public part of the beach. When we arrived we were greeted by Senora Anna and one other staff member. They lugged our heavy bags upstairs and showed us to our beautiful, airy and clean room. Anna could not have been more helpful getting us set-up and orienated to where we were. She recommended us a great pizza stand by the beach that served great slices and Cecina (pancake made from chickpeas i think) to set us up for the day. She also directed us to a local restuarant almost unknown by tourists where we could get local, quality food and wine without being treated like cattle. La Viareggina also has a cute back patio area for chilling with some wine and apperetivos! The breakfast that Anna served us was fantastic- cereal, fruit, yoghurt, meat, cheese and breads. The highlight for me was her homeade lemon cake and frothy capuchinos! I would stay at La Viareggina again without question and I highly recommend it. Anna's personality and personal touch was most appreciated throughout and we really felt we were staying with a friend's Aunt!

If you like day trips Viareggio is a central location to visit the Tuscany region, including Cinque Terre, Pisa, Lucca and Florence among others. And La Viareggina is a most comfortable place from which to plan your excursions. You'll be met with a smile and a map as well as travel tips from a local. Highly recommended!

I spent two nights at La Viareggina and loved its simple chic, clean lines and light airy feel. My room was lovely with plenty of space, spotlessly clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. La Viareggina is very well located, being only 50 metres from the beach, and within easy walking distance of the centre of town and the station. Anna, who owns the B&B couldn't have been more welcoming or more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. La Viareggina is open all year round and is a fantastic choice for anyone wanting to spend time in Viareggio, whether it be for a night or two, or longer. You won't regret it. Thank you Anna for a lovely stay.

Fantastic find via trip advisor, this place is a bargain in an otherwise pricey resort. Clean and airy, big beautifully decorated rooms with very nice bathroom and shower (powerful too). Breakfast is excellent and included homemade delicacies. Great location being opposite the beach and good parking, although we went slightly out of season and I know parking can be tricky in the high season.
Anna marie was a lovely welcoming Landlady, and I'll come back here again with family and recommend to freinds.

This place is the classic italian experience! With an amazing location near the beach, extremely comfy and clean rooms, and a home-made breakfast to die for .... there is no better reason to stay here than to know the woman who runs this place. Even though she handles the whole place alone, she goes out of her way and beyond all expectations to make you feel at home and welcome. She made my experience in Viareggio SO fun and feel-good ... it was heart-warming to meet and stay with someone like her! Actually a blessed experience. When I return to Italy, I wont stay anywhere else!!

We stayed for 5 nights in August 2012 with our 2 daughters. The hotel is small and beautiful and Anna the owner is a wonderful hostess. Our bedroom was light and airy and decorated beautifully. There were bunks for the kids and a mini-fridge, which was very important in the heat! There was also air-con which did not switch off when you left the room so we came back to a lovely cool room after a long hot day on the beach. Anna provided a lovely breakfast which always included wonderful bread, home made cake and fresh fruit. She also cooks in the evening if you book ahead and it is well worth it! I had the best spaghetti vongole I have ever had! The wine was included in the fixed price and was excellent and I will definitely ask her to cook again on our next visit! We LOVED this hotel and though we would love to keep it a secret so there is space for us when we want to go back, but it is really wonderful. It is close to the beach and Anna will book a beach brolly for you if you ask. It is also close to town so you can have a lovely passeggiata in the evening and watch the sunset.
Grazie Anna per una fantastica vacanza e torniamo presto!

Room Tip: Any room here will be worth staying in!
