The hotel does not represent a typical 4 star quality, because it is hold and it requires much restructuration work and it is poor in the facilities for a typical 4 star hotel.

The hotel is situated directly across from the promenade about midway through, so it was convenient to go in either direction to find shops, bars and cafes. Parking on the street was easy to find, although there was a daily fee of 7 euro through the hotel. The staff were extremely accomodating and I observed that they spoke many languages. I would definitely stay there again.

I agree with the many comments on how though this is a 4* hotel she really does seem like a relic from ages gone by, she is a little shabby but if that doesn't bother you, and I have to say it didn't affect my stay in any way, there is no reason not to stay here, not all hotels need to be ultra-modern right?! The most important, cleanliness and friendliness, were of perfectly reasonable standard. The only thing I didn't like was the shower, there was no shower curtain and the position of the shower meant the whole bathroom flooded, and I mean water all over the floor, which is pointless considering they could have position the bath better.

Generally I can't say that the hotel can be rated as 4 stars. The breakfast was rather poor. Rooms are a little bit worn out. Hotel has the beach, but it costs the same as all the beaches over the coast: 20 EUR/per day - umbrella, and 7 EUR/per day - the sunbed. People, who work on the reception are really nice and they always tryed to help us, if we needed it.

The staff in the lobby were very welcoming and helpful. They seemed to enjoy us on a personal basis. The breakfast had a good variety of foods and in a very nice atmosphere. The hotel reminds me a bit of a faded but elegant lady. Most remarkably, they found some items I had left in the hotel room and are mailing them to me. Most often, items left in rooms never are found and returned to their owners; however, the staff at the Palace are honest and helpful - so my mementos from our trip will be returned to me.

As soon as we had booked with Venere, I received a fax confirming our booking from The Hotel Palace, this was very reassuring. We had a deluxe double with a balcony, which gave us fabulous views over the sea. The staff were very helpful and friendly even though it was near the end of the season. You must hire a bicycle from the park and ride up the coast to the small towns, its flat,so its good for beginners and those who are unfit.

The Palace is located right on the 'strip' that fronts the beach and the area was jammed with people on a September weekend even when the bathing beaches were closed.We found the location very convenient and the sea view quite beautiful.From Viareggio, we visited Pisa, Lucca and Cinque Terre on different days.The staff was extremely helpful. Physically, the Palace is not quite shabby but it is showing its age a bit and some fresh paint and furnishings would do the trick. And the room we had did not even have a comfortable side chair.

The rooms need a much needed makeover. the shower did not have a protection and water also flooded the bathroom. The pillows need to be replaced. They smell and are very old. The best part about the hotel was some of they staff. Although I did not get their names. The young boy at the reception desk also had a smile on his face and was very helpful. The other man whom I believe was his mentor was extremly helpful and friendly. Lastly, the girl who worked on the rooftop was very friendly.

We really enjoyed the location of the hotel right on the promonade and close to the beach. We did not rent a chaise and umbrella on the beach provided by the Palace because we spent time going to Lucca and Pisa, which were an easy train ride from Viareggio. The evenings in Viareggio were wonderful with people walking the promonade, eating at restaurants and just enjoying the warm summer nights. It was an upscale area and very safe. We had a standard King room that was very large and was on the side (not facing the promonade). It was quite and the ac was quite. It had a great bar on the top floor with a view of the beach and promonade. The breakfast, which was included, was one of the best that we experienced on the trip. The staff was helpful though a bit stiff sometimes. The Palace is an older hotel built in the classic style of the 1920's. It was an easy cab ride to and from the train station. We would definitely stay there again.

Probably the best hotel I have ever visited. Wonderful hotel in a charming old style, but not shabby, like so many other "charming" hotels. Staff was excellent, always helpful, always competent. Location too was marvellous (as expected), 50 metres from the beach and with a priceless roof terrace perfect for watching the sun go down. Only problem is the price - it IS expensive with 200 euros a night, when beach access comes in addition, with a fee close to 20 euros a day per person. But again - there is a quite good relationship between price and quality, obviously.

The hotel common areas are beautiful. The staff was professional and helpful. Breakfast was included and I do not think that is listed on the site. The rooms needed updating, new carpets, painting etc would be great. It was clean, the breakfast was nice,overall good location. Very much an Italian resort area. You buy your spot on the beach for the day around 22 Euro for two people for the day.

The hotel is right on the Promenade and the English-speaking staff members were courteous, professional, and willing to assist us with everything from beach access to dinner reservations. Beach access will cost you a few Euro in Viareggio, which is surprising, but it makes things more enjoyable overall. Each private beach area has its own showers, WC, lifeguard, snack bar or mini restaurant, and it is all very well kept. Check with the hotel concierge at the desk, and for ~10 euro per person per day you will get access, a table, umbrella, and two sling back beach chairs. Lounge chairs and private changing cabanas are also available for an additional fee. The hotel terrace bar has a lovely view of the beach and it is a great place to have a cocktail and watch the sun set on the water. On Wednesdays and Sundays during the summer the terrace also has live music.

The Palace Hotel was one of the best Hotels we have stayed at. The staff couldnt do enough to help us with anything we needed. The room was excellent, large with antique furniture. We had two balconies one overlooking the sea. The breakfast was fruit, cereal, ham, eggs, and all kinds of pastries. I would certainly recommend the Palace for anyone staying in Varieggio and wouldnt hesitate to go back there again.

An excellent hotel in a commanding location in the centre of Viareggio. All the staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly cleran and very spacious. If you want a very special room with a large terrace, ask for a room on the 4th floor, costly but worth it.

This was a wonderful stay for me. I simply love Viareggio, and I loved the Palace Hotel. The room was large, with a lovely, but slightly outdated bathroom. The hotel offered TV in English, both Fox News Network and CNN as well as a variety of Italian and other international programs. The bed was very comfortable and there was more than enough space to unpack. The prices for the refreshments in the mini-bar were actually reasonable! The staff was wonderful, very friendly and chatty. If internet service is a concern, I am not sure how it works in the rooms, but there is a computer available downstairs near the concierge desk where dsl service is available for a small payment. I only used it for a few minutes, and the hotel did not expect me to pay for it. The breakfast was typically Italian, juice, water, pasteries, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, coffee and some fruit preserves, and of course, Nutella. All and all, a wonderful place to stay.
