About the location
Holidays to Viareggio are perfect for those looking to combine a beach holiday with a cultural adventure. Golden beaches meet Art Déco architecture in one of the best known Tuscan beach resorts. Touring the surrounding areas, you’ll come face to face with Pisa
, home of the famous leaning tower, and the medieval town of Lucca
, where you can immerse yourself in Italian history.
Viareggio was once the go to destination for Italy’s
rich and famous. The composer Puccini lived here in the early 1900s and the villa he built now houses a museum dedicated to his life and music. Nowadays, Viareggio attracts a wide range of holidaymakers. As dusk approaches, many tourists join the locals on their passeggiata, or evening walk along the seafront promenade. Here, families and friends come together and socialise, sometimes sharing a glass of wine or a gelato along the way.
The hotel is 30 minutes from Pisa airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

I was concerned when I first saw my room, as it was incredibly old fashioned looking, and filled with a variety of old furniture of the sort my grandmother favoured. The whole hotel is decorated that way in fact, from the lobby to the dining room, the corridors and the lifts. It's all very tired, at first glance, and I much prefer more modern decor. But I ended up being very comfortable here and it was excellent value for money given the great location on the seafront in the centre of town.
The staff were wonderfully friendly and patient (in excellent English) getting me a matress topper after a bad night on a very hard bed and working hard to try and get us a dinner reservation on a Saturday night. And my room had excellent aircon and a very nicely modernised bathroom, with excellent water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was good too, and the rooftop bar has amazing views and serves lovely cocktails - just remember to book if you want a front row spot to enjoy the sunset from.

We stayed at the hotel for two weeks and really enjoyed it. Initially the room allocated was very dark and we discussed this with the hotel Manager Eduardo who explained that the day we arrived was a national holiday and all rooms were full. The next day he moved us to a better much lighter room and gave a tour of the rooftop bar. Throughout his handling of the issue was excellent. The breakfast is one of the best that we have experienced in hotels and the waiting staff were always very helpful with nothing being too much trouble. The location of the hotel is very good in the centre of the city and close to the beach. The train station is only 15 minutes walk from the hotel and during our stay visited Lucca, Pisa, Florence and Cinqe Terre that are all very easy to travel to.
