“Good experience but some drawbacks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

We stayed just one night and when we booked were told we would be in the annex. When we arrived we were given a large room with a sea view and " two bathrooms". All for E140. Recession. After eating out we thought we might have a drink in the American Bar. However, at E15 for a gin and tonic and E12 for a small whisky we decided not to bother. Breakfast was very average.
Viareggio, one of Italy`s most popular resorts was, incidentally, very quiet with at least half of the beach ubrellas unoccupied.

E25 per day parking but almost worth it.

The Hotel Astor is an exceptional 4 star hotel. Ideally located on the beach front of Viareggio. On arrival the staff could not be more helpful promtly getting my cases to my room and explaining everything we needed to know.
The room was excellent however slightly dissapointed not to get a sea view.
The most impressive thing for me however was the breakfast and evening meals. The staff were fantastic from the head waiter, Moreno, to all of the others. Entertaining and very attentive. As for the food it is definitely some of the best in Viareggio!

Room Tip: I would reccomend that you request a sea view at this hotel.

We are very disappointed about this hotel. The price is far to expensive , the staff is unfriendly and the rooms are old and not very clean. We cannot understand whow this hotel is quoted as design hotel. The beds are not great. and for the price of 275 euro a night we had a room with NO view, no elevator and a lot of noise of people who fill the garbage next doors......

I was looking forward to my stay at the Astor having seen some stunning pictures on its website. When I arrived, however, I found it to be rather a bleak place to be. There was one member of staff who was polite and friendly but the rest of them seemed surly and disinterested. My accommodation was a horrible little box room with stains on the carpet. One of the towels in the bathroom was dirty and from my window I looked out over another hotel.

The pool and mini-gym are really, really grotty and very tiny. I was struggling to find any redeeming features within the hotel until I went up to the roof terrace which, although small, has good views over the sea and mountains. A further point in the Astor's favour is the breakfast buffet. There is a large selection, including masses of fresh fruit, and the dining room has sea views.

If you can get a cheap deal then the Astor would be reasonable - if only for the breakfast. Considering the usual prices they charge, however, I think it is to be avoided.

We stayed at the Astoria this October, and we found the location convenient - walked from the train station and were reasonable close to the shore. The staff was helpful, and the room was very nice for 80 euros with breakfast and private bath. The breakfast was at a bar just down the street and only a basic continental breakfast. I think the room had a heated marble floor, which was quite nice. All in all, a pleasant base from which we traveled to Pisa and Lucca by train.

Hotel very clean and staff generally helpful. However, there were one or two things that spoilt our holiday. First of all, It was bad enough that there was no outdoor pool or gardens, but the indoor pool certainly didn't make up for this as it was most uninviting. We also had to pay to use a pool at another hotel's beach facilities, and it was only by chance that we found out we could obtain a voucher which enabled us to use their chairs and umbrellas free. The shower fitting over our bath was half way along the bath and the screen was not adequate to stop the water going all over the floor. Our biggest complaint was regarding the food. For instance, one evening the menu said 'roast turkey - oven roasted'. Yes, this conjured up a beautifully carved turkey, but in fact turned out to be COLD wafer thin slices of turkey (like we would buy to put in sandwiches) with gravy. The view from our room and balcony was lovely, especially the fantastic sunsets.

My wife and I had a very nice stay at the Astor. If you're an American and never heard of Viareggio, you are missing a treat. It's a great beach town. You do have to get used to the idea that you pay to go to the beach, but it's really nice there.

The Astor is a very nice, modern hotel across from the beach. We got upgraded from a Superior room to a Suite, which gave us a huge terrace (every room has a balcony and I think all have some kind of ocean view) with chaise lounges and a panoramic view. I'd have to say that the hotel puts a bit more emphasis on appearance than the nuts and bolts. The air conditioner needed some extensive work when we arrived, and the showerhead sprayed water up and out of the shower until I wrapped a towel around the top of it. The pool and exercise room are not worth using.

Beyond that, I have nothing bad to say. The staff was very pleasant and accomodating. Breakfast was excellent and served in a beautiful, bright room. The room was very comfortable and well equipped. The location was perfect. If the cost was 2/3 of what it was this would be a 5 star review.
