“Fully equipped holiday accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Stayed at Hotel Ely Viareggio very comfortably, had all necessary items, wifi, aircon, hot power shower, hair dryer, phone, heater, tea coffee, kettle, mini bar, a good breakfast, parking paid inclusive, toiletries etc. we got more than we expected. The patron was especially helpful, drawing out a map for us and highlighting special places to visit. He even paid our extra parking fee when we were late waking up. Just a nominal fee (80cents), but still he was very kind to do that for us. The building is of age with high ceilings and lots of architectural characteristics. Very very close to the beach and seafront restaurants. Will hopefully go to hotel Ely again for Carnival. worthwhile accommodation.

From the moment you stroll in you feel welcomed and well looked after.

Cheap parking - 3 euro a day - is offered.

Rooms have character.

Staff go the extra mile to help with planning food, transport etc

Will be back next year.

Thanks very much.

More than a 2*

Increasingly guests ascribe to us higher value than on the two-star category, but we prefer to keep the two stars and give a positive surprise to those who come to visit us. We also look forward to your suggestions, they help us a lot!

The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean, large and comfy bed!
Shower was a bit small though, but we were passing through.. The location is perfect. Right near the beach. Great pricing for all of this. Would definatly reccoment this hotel!

A grand hotel! Reminds me of the big Edwardian hotels in St Anne's and Blackpool I visited with my parents in the 50s and 60s. Lovely big rooms, everything works and Viareggio is much smarter than I had expected. Great shops and a fantastic beach. This was our stop off on the way from Amalfi to Provance, but we liked it so much we decided to stay for another night. Great bar and lovely staff and brilliant value for money. The best yet cheapest hotel on our Italian trip. Will be back. Highly recommended.

What exaggeration! But we are only a 2 star, maybe shine because we keep them always clean! Thanks for the compliments, we are waiting again, we are always open!

The people running the hotel are very good-natured and sympathetic. As an example, when we were the very last breakfast guests, the girl kindly asked if we would need anything from the buffet or if she could clear it, before taking it away.

The room we stayed (107) was very airy and beautiful - and even ahd a little balcony with see-view. We were very lucky to end up here. I agree with reviewer Brian who says they deserve more than their 2 stars (I expect they'll get the third one at the next accreditation).

If you have more than a day, also be sure to explore Viareggio's very nice park, one street away from the beach. You can rent bicycles and there's lots of stuff to do for kids. It's also way nicer than the regular streets for getting from one end of town to the other.

Room Tip: Room 107 has a balcony with sea-view. If you are with kids, be sure to check out Viareggio's par...

Thank you Jan,
Your words encourage us to do even better. You were lucky to find one free room that is normally in high demand, but we have other rooms different from each other, both for the price and for adaptability to different needs of guests. Come back to visit and sample our cuisine! Thank you again!

We stayed on this hotel for 4 days and then followed on our trip to Tuscany but, every now and then we kept talking about how much we wanted to be back there!
Well located, such a relaxing environment, friendly people... There are no words to describe how much we felt at home really.
I would strongly recommend that you ask them where you should eat and what! That made the experience special because they do know some amazing places!
Thank you so much to Serena and Carlo for making this special occasion for us so much more memorable!
We will be back with the little one soon!

Room Tip: We loved our room, very high ceiling!
