We stayed two weeks at Hotel President in Viareggio. The location is excellent next to the beach promenade, service is very professional and the breakfast was excellent with both a'la carte and buffet options included in our standard room.
Our standard room was very small for two people staying there two weeks. Our room (510) didn't have a balcony, Air conditioning worked fine and the room was kept very clean. The house keeping was very flexible.
I loved the late breakfast from 7:30 to 10.30 AM. You could order omelettes, creppes, toasts, fruit smoothies and fresh orange juice made on order. Nice addition to their extensive buffet breakfast! There was even a glass of sparkling wine available.
What I missed was a balcony (only in a few rooms for quita a large extra charge) and at least a small terrace outside.
On some online booking sites they show pictures of a swimming pool, but that's a separate service about 400 metres from the hotel, and of course for an extra charge (25 EUR a day).
I ordered transfer from the Pisa airport to the hotel in advsnce by e-mail. We were charged 90 EUR for this service. Our friends staying in other hotels in Viareggio only had to hay 60 or 75 EUR for airport transfer. It appears Hotel President took us quite a big margin from this service.
Free WiFi included in the lobby and our room was a positive surprise. It worked fine most of the time.
However, if I choose to return to Viareggio on my vacation, I will probably choose another hotel with at least a small outside terrace and offering a reasonably priced room with a balcony. The hotel description and photos on Booking.com and Hotels.com mislead us a bit.
