Dear Guest, thank you very much for your kind rewiew. We have a small doubt if you rewiew a correct hotel because we have room 430 but we haven't pool in the roof terrace wich is at the Principe Hotel. Anyway we are glad that your stay in Viareggio was pleasant ! Hope to welcome you back soon in Viareggio...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 November 2016

Fabulous place. From arriving & seeing the impressive frontage, to our side sea-view room, we loved it! We booked half-board so took full advantage of the marvellous food. The breakfast buffet caters for everyone. Omellete, scrambled egg, bacon & sausage, fresh fruit, breads, cheeses (the local ones are really good) yoghurt, cereal, etc. The dinner menu is also very good....

Stayed at the Grand Hotel Royal for one week. Hotel oozes with character and charm from a bygone era. Excellent service and very help full staff. The beach is just across the road and the hotel also has its own pool and gardens. Pool area is a little cramp and has a very nice bar that serves drinks and snacks.

Viareggio is a wonderful place to use as a base to visit other cities and towns. We were shown how to take the buses and which bus stops, times and how to buy tickets at the newsagents or stations beforehand. Our guide showed us not the hotel although they had the schedules. Nothing to do in the evenings. The resort...

This hotel is over 100 years old and it is beautiful and elegant. We upgraded to a sea view room with a balcony which is at the front of the hotel.

This hotel is beautiful and elegant. All of the staff are extremely nice and helpful. The lounge bartenders and wait staff were awesome. The location is convenient to everything, right across the street from the ocean. We had a balcony facing the water and it was very enjoyable and relaxing. Would definitely recommend!

I would recommend the hotel to anyone. The hotel itself was amazing, the views of the Med awesome and everything was spotless. Only downside was the hotel desk staff treated us like we were beneath staying there, and continued to speak to each other and answer phones while handing us our keys. I would not hire them for a customer...
