Friendly, family run hotel. Lovely breakfast, a good selection on offer with great coffee. Booked this last minute to round off a month in Italy in various places. We have stayed in many hotels and found this to be the best value. In terms of comfort, sleep quality, price and location it is hard to beat. Two minutes from a... More

Great value, amazing location, and very quiet even though you are so close to the promenade (which is also a plus!). The hospitality is some of the best I've ever received and I would definitely return some day if in the area. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone!

Of course in an Italian hotel a guest is expected to be satisfied in all. But I think it is not easy to find the Manchester United fans in Viareggio! For your next visit I will certainly let you find the poster of Sir Fergusson! Thanks for the feedback and see you next visit to Italy! More

Anyone looking for good clean accommodation at fair rates should consider the Hotel Ely. We stayed three nights and the 20 minute walk to the station gave us quick access to Florence (under 2 hours),Pisa on the way back and Cinque Terre the next day. The breakfast is sensational but it is the family that makes the stay so enjoyable.... More
