Hotel Eden
Ranked #16 of 51 Hotels in Viareggio
Reviewed 21 July 2012

We've just got home from a wonderful week in Viareggio, staying at Hotel Eden. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, some spoke more english than others, and all seemed appreciative of our limited efforts at Italian!
The breakfast was plentiful, if a little basic, served in a very clean environment just off the hotel lobby. All rooms had a balcony with chairs and a small table. The shower was great, powerful and always hot. The air conditioning was easy to use. Our room was looking over a small side street, and all rooms seemed to have some view of the sea, some more "limited" than others! The roof terrace was a lovely addition, especially in the evening, watching the sunset with a bottle of chianti.
A couple of small "complaints" would be the safe situation, there were safes located in reception, rather than the rooms, and a lack of umbrellas on the roof terrace. The beaches are clean, but being on the Italian coast, cost money. A typical 2 sun loungers and umbrella set up cost around 15-20 euros per day, and you don't get to choose where you want to sit, the "lifeguard/beach manager" directed you to your allotted location.
If you're seeking a typical beach holiday, then this is probably not the location for you. The "free beach" was about 10m wide, stuck down the end of the private beaches. If however you're looking for wonderful food, a great location for exploring the area (florence, lucca and the cinque terre boat trip are a must, and all very easy get to on the train, so no need to bother with the travel company excursions) then Viareggio is well worth a visit.

If you want a good base to explore Tuscany, this is it. You get the breeze and relaxing sea side resort with lots of places to eat, (you must try 8etti on the road behind the hotel to the right, better value and fantastic food), but with a 10 min walk to the train station you can explore with a 90 mins ride to Florence and 20 mins to Pisa. The hotel staff were all friendly and spoke a bit of English as did most of the waiters at the restaurants. The room was comfortable, clean with a nice balcony and sun lounger on the roof giving great views. We really enjoyed our stay here, it wasn't fancy, but it had everything we needed.

Room Tip: Rooms that have a sea view will be on the main road and therefore in full public view, if you want a...

Don't be put off by negative comments - this is a very good hotel. The room we stayed in on the first floor was a decent size, comfortable bed, excellent shower/wc (but no bath), fridge & hairdryer, balcony (over a side street so no view) and was cleaned to a high standard. We found all the staff friendly and helpful.No safe in room but you can ask for one under the stairs in the main reception area free of charge. There is a good choice at breakfast, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, croissants, bread rolls, eggs - boiled & scrambled, bacon, cold meats, toasting machine & a coffee machine with hot water option if you want to make tea from the extensive teabag collection. On the roof of the hotel there is a great roof top terrace with sun loungers & plastic chairs & tables - lovely for watching the sun go down with a bottle of Chianti.The hotel is in an excellent location right on the front and good for getting around, just ten minutes or so walk from the train station with hourly trains to Florence, Pisa, Lucca & Montecatini Terme. Viareggio itself is laid out in a grid system so it is easy to navigate. There is a daily market just 5 mins from hotel, plenty of shops, and two supermarkets within 5-10 mins walk. For culinary diversity there is a decent Chinese restaurant 5 mins from hotel, at least 2 good kebab shops nearby & even a Burger King on the front (£6 for a burger though!). Viareggio is expensive but is a really pleasant place to stay - no lager louts here.Oh and if you like your ice cream you must try Grom opposite the Grand Hotel on the front.You won't regret it.

Was not sure we would be staying in Viareggio so I made late reservations for August. Hotel Eden was in the right spot, at the right price, a wonderful breakfast included and a rooftop terrace to share a fine chianti with friends and watch the sun go down.

Very nice hotel ... clean, comfortable, with polite and helpful staff (they printed us the train schedule, ordered a taxi for Pisa airport, etc). Very good breakfast, with all kind of pastry & cakes, fruits, cheese, eggs and bacon, coffee... Close to the sea and promenade with shops and restaurants. The rooms were lovely, newly refurbished and cozy. They also have a roof terrace with sea view.
It was a very good choice and I would return there.

Having seen some of the negative comments in previous reviews we did wonder if we had made the right choice and I have to say we definately did! We found the hotel to be clean, comfortable, all the staff were friendly & the all the staff on the front desk were always extremely helpful & polite. The hotel is in a great location however, we would definately recommend eating in the restaurants away from the promenade (in the streets behind the hotel) as the food was always cheaper & really well prepared.

We went to both Florence & Pisa by train (ten minute walk from the hotel) and saved a tidy sum by not booking with the tour operator. The hotel had all the train times and we had no problems at all with the service.

Overall a great holiday!

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor with a side sea-view and the sun was on the balcony late afternoon
