Reviewed 18 August 2009

If you get a room with a terrace you're laughing - it was superb (especially on the top floor - we reqested when booking). If you aren't lucky enough, there is a section of the terrace which all can use. I say thank God for this hotel because as non-Italian speaking English couple in Viareggio, we felt like aliens (we don't speak Italian!). The guy on the front desk though was our own personal tour guide.

A great two star hotel - a cross between a hostel and a good hotel - we loved it. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach.

Great "no frills" Hotel. Very friendly, helpful staff - a little expensive without breakfast and quite a distance from the beach.

My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful 7 nights stay at the family run Hotel Lupori in the middle of the old town in Viareggio. The hotel is ideally situated both for the train station, beach and promenade - all are within a 400 metre stroll through the atmospheric streets. It is surrounded by lots of different little shops, trattorias, cafe-bars, designer boutiques.......The canal which leads down to the harbour and to the pier is only a short distance away. For a few euros you can catch a train to Lucca and be there in only 20 minutes. Florence is also a very accessible train ride from Viareggio. Mr Lupori and his daughter both speak good english and are charming hosts. The hotel bedrooms , indeed the entire establishment, is spotless. The bed linen is changed frequently and the white fluffy bathroom towels are replaced daily. Striped beach towels are also provided. The continental breakfast was a meal in itself - fresh coffee, rolls, croissants, jams, fruit, ham,cheese,fruit juice,cereals, yoghurts, mini pizza slices etc!! Mr Lupori was also a willing source of information about places to visit ,transport times, good local restaurants and so on. We both enjoyed the whole genuine Italian experience and cannot wait to return the the Hotel Lupori and to the charming seaside town of Vareggio. Even in late September the weather was dry and warm.

The hotel staff are very warm, friendly, and helpful. Didn't realise this was a 2 star hotel. Thought it was actually a 3 star hotel. The room we got put in (room 1 on the first floor) was clean, spacious, and had a little fridge. The bathroom was also very big. We did not have any views from the first floor, so if possible, perhaps ask for a room with a view. As with most hotel beds in Europe, it was two singles pushed together, so I felt like I was falling down the crack when sleeping next to my partner. There are also sensor lights and so it was very hard to open the door to our room as the lights went out in about 10 seconds. Otherwise it was a nice pleasant stay and the location was fine. We were able to leave our bags in their garage until we left Viareggio later that day. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the train station.

Wouldn't normally feel inclined to write my views on a website but often refer to Trip Advisor when looking for hotels. We visit Viareggio quite often and have stayed at the Palace and Hotel Villa Tina in previous years, both of which were enjoyable if a bit pricey. Decided to cut costs this year and look for a **. Settled for the Lupori. Located in the backstreets, the Lupori is simple but fulfilled all our requirements. Despite it being a late booking, we emailed to ask if we could have a balcony and they replied immediately with a yes. We were put on the third floor and had our own terrace. wonderful. The view wasn't over the sea but that didn't matter to us as we were on the beach most days anyway. The room had air/con and a fridge so we could buy cheese, bread and meats from the lovely local shops and enjoy an evening meal with a bottle of wine. Delightful. The best thing
about the hotel apart from its cleanliness and friendliness, was it's location (strangely enough). Despite various previous visits to Viareggio, the location meant we discovered new and exciting local shops, restaurants and a super market - all less than 10 minutes from the beach. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station for day trips to Pisa, Rome etc and the fishing port and park are both close by. On leaving, they kindly booked us a taxi and gave us a bottle of wine as a leaving gift. Whilst there is no food/meals included (breakfast costs extra) there is a lovely friendly cafe bar opposite that does delicious capuccinos and brioches and there are plenty of restaurants all around. Totally delightful, wonderfully friendly, we would not hesitate to return to the Lupori.

The Lupori is a great little hotel. The location is ideal. Close to Railway and Bus stations. 5 minute walk to the sea front - just far away enough from hustle and bustle to be quiet yet convenient. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The staff are warm, friendly and very helpful. Having a room that opened onto the terrace was a great bonus. The terrace is such a generous size it feels like your own private garden and is lovely for sitting out in the evening. Lots of local supermarkets and coffee bars nearby.
Although we checked out at 11 am and our flight was not till 7pm the owner stored our bags and let us use the terrace and lounges while we waited. He made a point of calling up to say goodbye beforer he went off duty. He even went to the trouble bringing us chilled water ( Temperature in the 90's).
Such little considerations go a long way. I can highly recommend the Lupori over some of it's priceier neighbours.
