Don't be put off by negative comments - this is a very good hotel. The room we stayed in on the first floor was a decent size, comfortable bed, excellent shower/wc (but no bath), fridge & hairdryer, balcony (over a side street so no view) and was cleaned to a high standard. We found all the staff friendly and helpful.No safe in room but you can ask for one under the stairs in the main reception area free of charge. There is a good choice at breakfast, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants, bread rolls, eggs - boiled & scrambled, bacon, cold meats, toasting machine & a coffee machine with hot water option if you want to make tea from the extensive teabag collection. On the roof of the hotel there is a great roof top terrace with sun loungers & plastic chairs & tables - lovely for watching the sun go down with a bottle of Chianti.The hotel is in an excellent location right on the front and good for getting around, just ten minutes or so walk from the train station with hourly trains to Florence, Pisa, Lucca & Montecatini Terme. Viareggio itself is laid out in a grid system so it is easy to navigate. There is a daily market just 5 mins from hotel, plenty of shops, and two supermarkets within 5-10 mins walk. For culinary diversity there is a decent Chinese restaurant 5 mins from hotel, at least 2 good kebab shops nearby & even a Burger King on the front (£6 for a burger though!). Viareggio is expensive but is a really pleasant place to stay - no lager louts here.Oh and if you like your ice cream you must try Grom opposite the Grand Hotel on the front.You won't regret it.
