“Family Friendly, well located hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Lovely hotel. Modern rooms. Excellent staff. Good food. Very enjoyable time had by all our family. The sunbeds were expensive given that they had some deal with the hotel next door! However the beach was lovely as so close. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice. We ate in the hotel one night and the food was fantastic and well priced.

Hotel Esplanade was very good. The staff were very helpful. Rooms were clean and well stocked with everything needed for self-catering although we ate out every evening. The only criticism is at breakfast there was no fresh orange juice; although there were other juices; and I would have preferred fried eggs instead of scrambled eggs (however, I think you could've ordered other forms of eggs but this was not offered). Over-all, very pleasant and convenient for sight seeing and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to stay in the area.

The hotel was nice generally, the room was big, but the bath room is very tiny and inconvenient. When we arrived we were surprised that there is no bagnio but only a shower which is very small.. But when we asked to exchange it for a bigger room and pay for it they told us that ALL rooms are with those tiny showers. We have a 8 months old baby that's why it was important to us to have bagnio.
Also I noticed that all hotels including this one have no special entrance for pushchairs which is really a hassle for a family with a pushchair coming back from the beach..
The nice thing about this hotel is that they give you a special rate to use Principe Piemonte beach.

Stayed here in a two room apartment and was very impressed with the size of the rooms and quality of the furnishings. Staff friendly and helpful We were lucky enough to be given a room with a sea view at the side of the building with a beautiful and large balcony that covered both rooms. Nice position near the beach and sea but a little to one side of the restaurant strip. However we felt that the nicest bars and restaurants were definitely closest to this hotel so ideal as far as we were concerned. Breakfast was lovely with excellent choice although hot food a little dried up and needed replenished. Can hire bikes at the hotel 8 euros all day or 5 euros half day - great fun. They can also give you a discount for the classy principale piedmonte hotel's beach/pool facilities for 40euro. Lovely resort, classy and smart however mostly italian's holidaying here but we liked that.

Room Tip: Ask for room at the side of the building facing the piedmonte hotel. (the hotel doesnt face the beac...

I recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with a family of 4 and my parents. Two rooms. This was by far the BEST hotel room in my two weeks in Italy. The hotel room for my family of 4 (ages 16 and 13) had two rooms, a bathroom, and a patio. The family room had two beds and a small kitchenette where we only used the fridge. The master bedroom had a large bed and a large closet. The rooms were very clean and the service at the hotel is very good. they gave us great tips for restaurants near by and we had excellent food. The only issue we experienced was on the first night with our air conditioner - it leaked on the floor but they immediately got a repair man in to fix it the next day and from that point on it worked great.

Viareggio is a beautiful beach town and this hotel is just a block from the beach, literally you just walk down the street 5 doors and go across to the beach. They sell beach umbrella rentals so you can use the private beaches vs. the small strip of public beach that is located very far away and is very narrow and undesirable. Be prepared to spend 30 Euro for a beach umbrella with 4 chairs and you pay at the front desk. Another 10 Euro for towel rentals. There is a boardwalk and the beaches are very clean.

I would go back to Viareggio and stay here again. Their restaurant is also good, we ate there the first night but we enjoyed Massimo's around the corner and La Playa on the boardwalk. Renting bikes was excellent for my mom (in her 70's) who doesn't walk that well but she can bike. It was enjoyable for her too.

We stayed here for 3 days with our family at the start of our holiday. we had 3 children in the party. Aged 2, 7 and 10 years. The hotel was about a 40 minute drive from Pisa airport. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were on the ground floor which was perfect for travellers with young children as a wall surrounded the patio area which was spacious enough for a table for dining a clothes drying area and play space. The kitchen was poorly equipped for self-catering. (no kettle). Breakfast were excellent. Plenty of choice for all the family. Plenty of high chairs which were brought to your table as soon as you arrived in the restaurant. A bonus for us was a little toddler area complete with a train track and child friendly furniture. Minutes from the beach. Parking available on the main road outside the hotel. Modern hotel, very clean rooms with a daily service of fresh laundry and beds made. Friendly staff. Sun package allows loungers table and deck chair. Gorgeous beach only a 5 minute walk away. Promenade with cafes, shops and a market on Thursday morning only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. Thoroughly recommend this hotel for families

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room if travelling with very young children as the enclosed patio area feels v...

Stayed in the Hotel for 3 nights in June 2012. Our room was clean and adequate. The self catering kitchenette was very small, and had no kettle or toaster. Rooms had air conditioning and daily renewal of towels and maid service. The Hotel balcony was too small to eat. Could accommodate 2 persons only, but not our family of 4. Breakfast was of a very good standard and the staff courteous and friendly. The Hotel was ideally placed to the beach, shops, and restaurants. This Hotel seems more suited to business or short stay.

Hotel in a quiet location, with no street noise.

Room Tip: If booking request a room with a large balcony. My sister had a wonderful terrace to allow her litt...
