Stayed in this hotel in September prior to attending a family wedding in the mountains. Perfect position for the beach and promenade. Spotlessly clean. Great food. Staff unbelievably helpful. Lovely pool and pool bar in the pleasant gardens

Fabulous place. From arriving & seeing the impressive frontage, to our side sea-view room, we loved it! We booked half-board so took full advantage of the marvellous food. The breakfast buffet caters for everyone. Omellete, scrambled egg, bacon & sausage, fresh fruit, breads, cheeses (the local ones are really good) yoghurt, cereal, etc. The dinner menu is also very good.... More

Viareggio is a wonderful place to use as a base to visit other cities and towns. We were shown how to take the buses and which bus stops, times and how to buy tickets at the newsagents or stations beforehand. Our guide showed us not the hotel although they had the schedules. Nothing to do in the evenings. The resort... More

This hotel is beautiful and elegant. All of the staff are extremely nice and helpful. The lounge bartenders and wait staff were awesome. The location is convenient to everything, right across the street from the ocean. We had a balcony facing the water and it was very enjoyable and relaxing. Would definitely recommend!

I would recommend the hotel to anyone. The hotel itself was amazing, the views of the Med awesome and everything was spotless. Only downside was the hotel desk staff treated us like we were beneath staying there, and continued to speak to each other and answer phones while handing us our keys. I would not hire them for a customer... More

Just returned from a two week stay at "The Royal". A very elegant hotel which would be spoilt by modernisation. Our room was at the front on the fourth floor.
