If you decide to stay in this hotel, I strongly suggest you to take pictures of every remote corner of the room before accepting it. They accused us to have damaged a stool we have not even touched...

Tripadvisor review Jan 20 2024
Nice seafront location on the main street of Viareggio and beautiful façade. The interior is modern and comfortable. There's a buffet for breakfast and staff is friendly. We've expected a bit better...
