Great little hotel. Extremely helpful/accomidating staff. The rooms were what we expected in a 4 star hotel. Great jumping off point for Lucca, Chinque Terre and Florence. I would definitely stay they again.

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for your nice posting. I am delighted to read your positive comments and particularly those referring to our Staff.
We couldn't agree more that Viareggio is a special resort with all the most popular cities at a short distance to visit.
We all hope to have you here again soon and once again thank you.

Kindest regards

Stayed for a couple of days here on a mini trip to Tuscany. Well located with view directly over the sea. Breakfast good. Staff all very nice. Clean and good sized rooms. Well located and easy to walk most p,aces from here. We arrived end of September and it was pleasant. I really cannot imagine what viareggia would be like in August!

Would recommend this hotel. We used the bar - pleasant but lacked a little ambience - shame because we probably would have used it more if it was a little bit more modern & trendy...

Never ate in the restaurant so we cannot comment. This is because the lights were very bright at night.... Not what we wanted

Overall a nice hotel

Room Tip: Balcony & sea view

Would happily recommend this hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was lovely and cleaned to a high standard every day. Food was excellent (we were half-board so this was included in the price we paid, otherwise restaurant prices would have been on the expensive side)
We had a very relaxing week and would be very happy to stay at this hotel again.

We stayed two nights here and it was just great! Our room was overlooking the beach and although the balcony was small(just enough room for two chairs) it was perfect. The electronic shutters was great for keeping out the light and noise. The cosy robes, slippers, plush towels were all a bonus. We didnt have a coffee maker in the room and all it took was a request and within a few minutes a Nespresso machine was delivered to our room. The buffet breakfast was top notch. We had access to the beach club with chairs, umbrella and beach towels. Great service, value and would recommend!

We enjoyed our stay in Viareggio at Hotel Presidente. The hotel is conveniently located about 10mn walk from the train station and right across the street from the beach, in the center part of the beach walk. We booked a room with a seaview for two nights and the friendly staff member at check-in was very kind to upgrade us because they were not full, to the next category of room. As a result, we had a lovely room with two balconies overlooking two different angles of the beach. The room and bathroom were standard for a 4* hotel. However, we enjoyed the thick towels, electronic window shutters, floor tiles (I'm allergic so I was glad there was no carpet) and available umbrellas (it rained while we were there). The nice breakfasts consisted of a buffet, plus an a-la-carte menu with freshly squeezed juices, eggs made to order, side dishes, etc., included in the very reasonable rate. A terrific quality/price ratio in Viareggio!

Whilst the hotel lacked certain features- pool, garden,wellness centre it had many good features. The staff in the hotel could not do enough for you, particularly Nadim in the bar and Massimo on reception. Our room was spacious and cleaned beautifully every day. Would recommend the hotel to anyone going to Viareggio.

Room Tip: Not necessary to ask for a sea view as most rooms have some view.

Recommend this hotel to anyone. It's a great pity that short-sighted Thomson Holidays won't be using it anymore, or even flying to Pisa for beautiful Tuscany from next year. Too Italian perhaps?
If anyone wants too arrange their own holiday in Viareggio, this hotel will be a great base to explore from. Cheers to the staff, especially in Reception.
