Hotel Bahia
Ranked #23 of 51 Hotels in Viareggio
Reviewed 2 September 2009

We booked this hotel after reading the reviews here (and because of late booking, our first choices weren't available). I would agree with a lot of what people said here, but I am surprised how few reviews mentioned the noise. The hotel is right next to the busy coast road and even with windows and shutters closed at night, we could hear the cars, motorcycles and especially scooters very clearly. The floors and stairs in the hotel are marble and very echoey, so once anyone gets up or staff arrive, it is impossible for a light sleeper to stay asleep. Prices are very reasonable considering the location and the beach is free for hotel guests (not always the case with Viareggio Hotels). Breakfast was pretty dire, but seems to be the standard fare in Italy. The bathroom was small and the shower didn't have great pressure. The family that own the hotel are friendly and helpful. We booked a 3 night stay with an option for a fourth day, but had to leave after one day for unforeseen reasons, and were only charged for the one night, which was very decent of them. One more slightly disappointing fact: we left some expensive underwear in a drawer in one of the wardrobes and despite returning the next morning to the hotel it had mysteriously "disappeared". I asked them to let me see the room to check (since it was unoccupied) and they told the cleaner to take me up, which she did very ungraciously, muttering in Italian the whole way, to find the drawer empty.

We ( a group of 9 ranging in age from 14 - 70+) spent 4 days in August at the Hotel Bahia.
We enjoyed a warm welcome, great food and many laughs, not least when it came to placing our dinner orders over breakfast.
The hotel benefits from a tie up with the beach across the road, - be warned stick to your designated chair or expect the wrath of the beach 'man' !

The hotel is fairly basic, no frills and no fuss and yet we would all recommend it for its warmth and good food

Everything about the hotel was perfect. The rooms are average size, comfortable and clean. I never felt hot in my room and was able to control the air conditioning from my room. The staff of the hotel is the high light! Giulio and his mother, Nila, are the friendliest bunch...and funny as well! The most amazing part is their cooking- they are a dynamic duo in the kitchen. Everyday at lunch was a feast! Besides a buffet of goodies (veggies, fish trays, foccacia) to fill your plate, you also get a "primo" (e.g. pasta) and "secondo" (e.g. fish or meat). Then, to top it all off, a new dessert everyday! I never left hungry or unsatisfied. Breakfast is a great spread as well. The latte's are divine! THe hotel is located centrally in the middle of the "passeggiata" and along the water front. If you want a relaxing beach holiday with amazing food and comfort, there is no other option. I already booked the hotel for my honeymoon.

We didn't have reservations and we stumbled across this little gem of a hotel. Great view and location. Very clean rooms with excellent and friendly service. Good price also. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel for just one night, to spend one of the last days of our holiday relaxing at the beach.

We found the Hotel Bahia without any problems as it is on the main road that runs along the sea front. You can park your car on the road although I think there are restrictions on a particular day.

The hotel was clean and bright. We were disappointed not to get the sea view we requested, but had booked at relatively short notice.

The room and bathroom were on the small side (especially the bathroom) but had air conditioning and all expected amenities.

The hotel was as close to the beach as possible, however, there is a traffic restricted area with an alleged 3km of shops next to the actual beach. The beach is split into "Bagno"s and the hotel provides free sun loungers and access at an establishment across the road.

The receptionist/owner was very friendly but his English was rather basic, although we didn't have too much trouble. The breakfast was very nice and had a wide selection.

Be warned that there isn't much else in Viareggio except the beach and the shops on the sea front. We found very little to do after checking in because it was raining. Try not to visit Viareggio if rain is forecast.

The hotel was pretty average but pleasant and no real complaints.
