A bronze medal contender
Posted Sep 7, 2009 on Hotels
Whilst the location of this hotel is exceptional for the beach resort of Viareggio (being central & overlooking the promenade) what lies within this 3 star residence is a let down i'm afraid. The reception area was bright and airy, and we had no problems checking in,done and dusted in under 5 mins. The staff were friendly for the duration of our four night stay, but I'm beginning to run out of plus points now! Our room(2 adlts/twin) was way too small and the beds were sadly lacking in length. We became experts at walking sideways around the room! The decor was old and tired, unless chipped, pink wooden side cabinets and a chair from the 80's is your thing! This place is crying out for a complete revamp and much needed modernisation. The distinct lack of toileteries in the bathroom (also tiny) was disappointing. Breakfast was nothing to write home about either,even by continental standards. There just seemed to be yoghurts and that awful juice from concentrate.
However, our room service was great, the room was spotless and pristine every afternoon,with fresh towels provided daily.
So, if a dead basic hotel,lacking in most facilities is your thing,and you just need a bed for the night,then search no further.But truth be told, we wouldn't stay here again.
