We have just returned home from a 10 day stay in this hotel. It is ideally situated right on the long promenade of Viareggio. The resort is very Italian and to the English the architecture on the sea side of the promenade is a little quirky.
The hotel does not have a swimming pool but has an arrangement with a private beach for it's guests. (12e per person per day - deck chair and umbrella). We selected the cheapest rooms so that we could invest heavily in the local seafood and wine. Also these rooms are situated in a central well of the hotel building - they have an austere outlook but are very peaceful. The rooms are comfortable, with excellent bathroom, are kept immaculately clean and serviced twice daily.
The public rooms on the ground floor - the entrance, reception, bar and lounge - are very impressive. There is a wonderful roof top restaurant with veranda and views out to sea and the mountains.
The real delight of this hotel is the staff and the food! Every member of staff one meets is super efficient and super friendly.
The cleaning staff keep your room and everywhere else spotlessly clean. The reception staff work extemely hard at answering all your questions (all speak excellent English) and arranging for cars, restaurant bookings outside the hotel and making sure that everything runs smoothly on those special trips. The restaurant staff provide wonderful cuisine, served immaculately in lovely surroundings.
We felt we were treated like friends by every member of staff and one of the reception staff even came out on to the steps of the hotel to wave us off as we left for the airport in our taxi.
Thank you, all at the Plaza e de Russie Hotel.
