“Whole hearted experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We had to extend our stay in Italy due to our car broke down. We ended booking this great Hotel in the last minute due to the reviews on Tripadvisor.

Despite that we hit the hotel in peak season they managed to get us into an apartment which was comfortable for our family of 5. Especially the staff on this Hotel is great and extremely sweet. They offered us to stay in a flexible time frame since our car kept being delayed. At points they had to mingle a bit with their logistics and even then they managed to exceed our expectations.

That said the breakfast in the hotel could be improved by a little bit more of fresh fruit in trade with all the cakes and danish that were available. Also the chef waiter would be better off if he relaxed a bit - he was rather uptight - not that he bothered us - but he was just such a contrast to the rest of the staff on this Hotel. Even our kids noticed it... maybe he had a bad week.

BUT once again thank you for a great 5 star treatment in a 4 star hotel. A special thanks to the frontdesk that was extremely well run with great people both night and day.

We were en route from the Frech Riviera to Tuscany and needed a comfortable pit-stop midway. Viareggio seemed to be small enough to give easy access and a chance to swim, dine and sleep. This hotel proved to have all we wanted, clean mini appartment with four full-sized beds, across the street from the promenade. There was a kitchenette, but not tempting to do more than keep the rosé chilled in the fridge. For us road-trippers location was convenient with curbside parking in front. Service was friendly and scored an extra point for chasing us after check-out to return a forgotten item. All beaches nearby are private and the hotel had a deal with one of them - we only had a couple of hours of sunlight so we got a special deal for 15 euros for a sunbed, two chairs and an umbrella - the pool would've cost extra. Wouldn't stay here for more than a couple of nights, but in the event I would come back with the same itinerary, I would have a reason to go anywhere else either.

We were a family of three, and stayed here for 3 nights in July. The hotel has an excellent location 50 meters from the long Avenue going all the way along Viareggio’s beach line, and 150 meters from the waterfront. We had a family room which actually was a suite with separate bedroom. They serve excellent breakfast with all kinds of Italian coffee served at your choice. The hotel has a deal with two private beaches nearby. We only tried the Principe di Piemonte beach. It was rather expensive (35 Euros for an umbrella, sunbed, two sun chairs and an ordinary chair). The beach was clean and spacious and we also had access to a pool, restaurant and beach bar. The Hotel also has bikes to let, both city bikes and mountain bikes. We rented city bikes for a day (8 Euro a bike). All bikes have locks and are in good shape. We had a great trip to the fair city of Pietrasanta. It is approximately 11 km away and you can ride on a bike path all the way. We would certainly recommend this hotel if you wish to explore Viareggio.

They had no single rooms and I was offered a family suite at 100e. What a great deal for a super large room, living room, kitchenette and across the street from the promenade, plenty of street parking, a block from the central park

Above average service for three star hotel, very comfortable rooms with lovely comfortable beds and pillows, very good standard of cleanliness throughout. Did not like our initial room as it had no balcony and little light however, we were offered another room immediately with minimum fuss! Very happy with overall 4 nt stay. Very minor gripe with the very inexperienced breakfast staff who lacked little initiative to refill/stock food and plates without being asked! Overall would return.

Second stay at the Hotel Residence Esplanade. This Hotel is ideal for families, as it offers spacious rooms, with self catering facilities and the option of Hotel B&B and Meals. It really is the best of both worlds.

Great breakfast, friendly helpful staff. It is worthwhile paying for a room with a large balcony, so do check when booking, as it makes such a difference. Rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels given.

The Hotel is within a minutes walk to the blue flag beach. We recommend booking beach facilities separately, as their is a great range of beach facilities along the whole promenade, some with play parks, wonderful restaurants, changing facilities and pool. All great for a family holiday. We used the Bagno Florida, as the food was excellent and a lovely well maintained play park.

The bus for Pisa Airport stops at the corner of the road. If travelling from Pisa airport, we recommend using the bus, as the Hotel is so well located on the public transport route.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, and will pay a 3rd visit with no hesitation.

As an added extra, do visit Pietrasanta about 10 minutes drive by taxi from the Hotel, and the restaurant Gatto Nero. Bliss.

Room Tip: Book a room with a large balcony on the 1st floor. Don't book the beach facilities with the Hot...
