Hotel Marchionni
Ranked #27 of 51 Hotels in Viareggio
Reviewed 26 September 2012

Hotel Marchionni is situated just behind an extremely grand and expensive hotel (the big one in teh photo) on the Viareggio seafront. It is an art deco style building, its glory fading a little, but clean, comfortable and welcoming. The staff were excellent, the buffet breakfast fresh and with a very wide range of choices (including a small amount of hot food). Very good location and nearby free parking (but move on Monday evening when the streets are cleaned!). No tea or coffee facilities in the rooms, but that's the norm for Italy.

Room Tip: You can ask for sea view, but that is only from a balcony, seen sideways.

I was a bit reluctant to book this hotel for the last leg of our Tuscan holiday as there are some really bad reviews....but since the other hotels were all booked, we decided to try it.

This hotel is not as bad as i thought it would be, so I'm pretty pleased.

For a 3 star hotel, i think it delivers.

The hotel is in an old building 5 minutes walk from the beach. The entrance is very unassuming, and i was a bit surprised that it was the main entrance to the hotel.

Rooms are a good size decorated very sweetly with angels and ornate gilt mirrors, high ceilings, air conditioning, flat screen TV and mini-bar fridge. Wifi is not free and it a bit costly at 7 Euros a day.

I found our room clean and quite modern with good airconditioning (important on the summer months)

Bathrooms are clean, although quite small and narrow. So it's definitely not somewhere you want to hang out for a long time.

Breakfast is excellent, especially for Italian standards. A large variety of fruits, cheeses, hams, scrambled eggs, bacon, pastries..the list goes on!

My other complaint is that the only English channel was BBC, and there was a problem with the TV signal for that channel so it was quite annoying.

Pros:
- Location....5 minutes from beach
- Excellent breakfast
- Spacious rooms with high ceiling

Cons:
- Small bathroom (could do with some renovation)
- No free wifi

P.S. Viareggio is apparently full of private beaches, so it s important to ask the Reception where is the best value Beach club. This time, we were referred to Guido Beach club where it's 20 Euro (Marchionni Hotel clients receive 20% discount so it's 16 Euro) to rent an umbrella and 2 lawn chairs.

Good location and the service was very good. The only issues we had are that there were no coffee or tea making facilities in the room and coming from blighty it would have been nice to have a tea. Location wise we couldn't have been situated in a better place a five minute walk from the beach. Talking of the beach they were charging 20 euros to sit on the beaches and addition 20 euros to use the swimming pools which is around 35 pound English money which is a total rip off. Also if you were thinking of taking a dip in the sea then don't it is full of jelly fish two people were stung while we were there.

Great! Comfortable hotel on a nice square of Viareggio. Nicely decorated spacious room, bathroom functional. I was really impressed from the breakfast... Good for North-European standards but really amazing for Italian standards. Price in January (low season) was really cheap. Some minor faults: check out too early (10.30 AM ...) Parking is in front of the hotel, but not free of charge. The bed was a bit small. However I really advice this hotel.

Stayed here for two days at end of business trip. Hotel basic, but clean. Good breakfast. Very close to beach and the Italian version of a boardwalk. Hotel manager quite helpful with dinner reservations etc. Much like beach town on the eastern US seaboard (Rehoboth, Jersey shore etc.), but with better food and gelato.

When you make the booking you can see just nice photos from the hotel but in the real life it is very different. The room is dirty, some of them without window the bath room mouldy. The balcony was not cleaned in the last 2 years... etc.
The room costs eur100.-/night...look at the photos...you can decied it wors or not...
I reported it to metglobal.com but they did not want to understand what I am saiying.

Best location in Viareggio with excellent service, charming decor and a serious attempt to provide a decent breakfast. Wifi is a plus
