“Excellent Italian beach hotel”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We came here straight from landing in Florence to start our trip on the coast. A seaside hotel mainly used by vacationing Italian families. Extremely well kept but simple room, with balcony overlooking the Med. Plenty of space for two, clean, and free wifi. Pretty quiet, well out of the central Livorno area. Breakfast on the patio overlooking the coast was wonderful, with good breakfast selection. Fun to watch the ship and ferry traffic out on the water. Excellent and courteous staff, and all spoke English well enough to be helpful, and they certainly tried very hard to please us! From the lower level there is a typical Italian umbrella deck with lots of sunbathers. Took a while to find the lifeguard staff on two occasions for an umbrella and towels, but we got a spot. A breakwater a short distance offshore makes for a very nice swimming area in which to relax. Would be great for families or couples. We recommend it, especially because there are mostly all Italian guests -- not a "tourist" hotel for non-Italians, but authentico.

Room Tip: Higher is better; lower rooms are fight over the sunning deck and probably hotter and noisier.

It's a great place to be. Rooms are clean, it has a beautiful terrace were you can dine overviewing the sea. Personnel is very helpful and friendly. The architecture and design is classic Italian from the 70's. at first it seemed funny, I became to appreciate it later on.

We came here with 3 little kids (including a 4-month old) so we were staying in a room with two bedrooms and a parlor. Room was big and clean... but perhaps our room was at the end of the corridor, the wifi reception was not very good and the view from the balcony was much worse than other rooms... breakfast was good but it didn't change much (we stayed there for 4 nights)... so basically we had the same thing everyday. but they offered outdoor dining area with great sea view... so it was fine. The private beach was pretty good and we enjoyed the sunset view there everyday...

Room Tip: Ask for the room with sea view... but don't get the room at the end of the corridor

Stayed 1 night , was a good choice
I agree with most reviews , it needs an refurbishment , but is was clean and efficient
The view when you open your window in the morning makes it worth staying here
Would stay here again !!

The service from Analiese in reception was outstanding. There was plenty of sunloungers,and umbrellasand all the rooms had balconies overlooking the sea. The restaurant was nice if a little basic. All in all a good place.

Room Tip: Any room will do

A nice hotel perfectly situated by The Mediterian Ocean. The view from the roofterrace is stunning. The rooms are good - but you will probably not use much time there. The Hotel has a private beach...

Room Tip: A room room With a View.

I loved my stay at the Hotel Rex - its far-out retro style combined with the on the sea front locale was perfect for the get away from the driving heat in Firenze. Easy to get to by city bus from Livorno (last stop) on the # 2 coast/beach route. Secluded, beautiful coastline and beaches and sunbathing on lounges options. Clean, and simple but nice. The showers have a super massager feature-wow! That was fun. Hint, Avoid rooms on the 2nd floor- a noisy banquet room upstairs was annoying at certain times towards the south end of the building. Get a room with a partial or full view, worth it!-Balcony for breathing that luscious sea air. Breakfast was amazing- huge selection. The staff were all wonderful and very attentive and helpful- computer in the lobby. Thanks for the wonderful stay. Bello!
