Caution - If you book a standard room, be prepared to accept a room in the older part of the hotel. No elevator, and the room smelled like disinfectant. After upgrading to a room on the sixth floor and getting the room we thought we had originally booked, we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was included and very good. Dining on the open air balcony was lovely. We will definitely consider coming back to this hotel.
Breakfast was poor on our second stay, not much food left at 10 am. Staff were not forward on providing more availability.
Room service was not provided on second day, had to make bed and ask for clean towels.
Excellent choice, hotel at the nicer end of Viareggio beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was quite a surprise as it consisted of two rooms, a bedroom plus a lounge area with another large TV and between the two rooms was a large wardrobe with safe etc. Very nice bathroom, looked recently decorated with power shower.
Breakfast had a good choice and was regularly re-stocked as items were used.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay her and would definitely return.

We stayed five nights, and the hotel significantly exceeded our expectations in every respect. Its location is perfect, overlooking the promenade. Rooms were spacious (well worth the upgrade to deluxe) and clean, very comfortable. Staff, particularly Edward, was outstanding. Breakfast was a perfect way to start the day. Viareggio is not only a great seaside resort town, but also serves as a great hub for day trips to Lucca, Cinqueterra, Pisa, and even Florence.
We can't wait to return and would without question stay again at the Palace.
Viareggio is great base to visit Florence, Lucca, Pisa, etc by train. Old Hotel struggling to meet current expectations & standards. Rooms clean, good choice of fresh food at breakfast. Staff always helpful. Good value for money.
This classic seaside resort on Tuscany’s Riviera della Versilia is still a fashionable watering hole with lively clubs and cafés. Viareggio enjoyed its heyday during the 1920s, when the ornate Liberty- style (Art Nouveau) villas sprang up along its palm-lined promenade and the grid of streets behind. Broad, dune-backed beaches, a harbour filled with fishing boats and luxury yachts, and its flamboyant Shrovetide carnival attract the crowds.
