My husband & I very much enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel with excellent facilities & accommodation, charming staff and extremely good food & reasonably priced wine to accompanying our dinner necessitating strict diets on return to UK. Location is excellent as bus from right outside Pisa airport terminal stops right outside the Hotel for the extremely reasonable cost of 3 euro per person.

On first site the hotel is very impressive and it just gets better. The staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. We celebrated special anniversary and were upgraded and a chilled bottle of sparkle was in our room on arrival.
I am a coliac and this was wonderfully catered for. I chose what I would like and the chef prepared gluten free meals. I cannot fault anything. The staff at the wonderful swimming pool were execellent. The waiters and waitresses fantastic. Reception staff were always very helpful and attentive. All the staff made this a wonderful holiday.
Viareggio is lovely, the beach is amazing and the hotel provided two deck chairs and a parasol with each room at no charge.
Walking along the promanade was enjoyed every evening and there is always something different going on, markets or people performing or just looking at the amazing shops. There is so much to see and do that I cannot recommend this holiday highly enough.
We spent a day in Florence, visited Pisa, Lucca, Pietrasanta, Forte di Marmi all of which were breathtakingly beautiful. We used the excellent rail service (two tier trains, amazing) and the buses all of which are very easy to use and good value.
Cannot wait to go back.

Stayed for 2 weeks from 22.5.2010 with wife and 10 yr old son. We had the largest room we've ever had on holiday. Hotel is in great situation. The staff were excellent, especially Lucia in the restaraunt - doesn't she work hard. Also impressed with the lifeguard at the pool - he was very good with the children and looked to move the sunloungers to a sunny spot if he could. Food was excellent, plenty of choice, even for me (a vegetarian). Would not hesitate to stay again. Rooms at side of hotel are quieter.
Recommend trips to Lucca, Pisa (by train - cheaper than the bus) and Forte de Marmi and Pietrasanta

The food and level of service at the Best Western was truly outstanding! The staff's attention to detail and overall treatment of all guests was impressive. Viareggio itself is a wonderful holiday destination that shows you how the Italians holiday. The only issue we had during our weeks staff was the unreliability of taxi's in Viareggio. Other than that this is a wonderful holiday resort!

We have just returned from having a fantastic family holiday at this beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived we had great service from all of the staff throughout our stay. Everyone works so hard to make sure guests are well looked after. Plenty of food choices at breakfast time and for delicious evening meals. Dining in the hotel restaurant is lovely after a day spent on the local beach or after sight seeing around Florence, Pisa or Lucca, all which are easy to get to by train or bus. We had a large family room at the front of the hotel with views down the promenade and across to the beach. The hotel pool and garden is lovely to relax in too. Wish I was back there now !

2 nights spent in this hotel : excellent location, marvelous architecture and beautiful old decoration. Good Breakfast ( but no fresh juice! ) in a really nice place.
Very helpful staff.
The room was very big in front of the sea.
Inconvenience: very noisy as no double windows, and the water does not flow in the bath.To be recommended.
