What a bissful relaxing stay, just what we needed
The best night's sleep I've had in ages! The room was exquisite and the staff unobtrusive yet so attentive to our needs. The bar up on the terrace has magificent views of the sea and we will miss the 'aperitivo' during sunset served up with their resident 2 Michelin Star Chef's sublime canapes. I could go on and on..simply thank you to all the staff for making our stay such a memorable one.
Fantastic stay the end the summer
We stayed 4 nights at the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte and had the most pleasant stay. The staff was very welcoming and anticipated all our needs. They remembered that I was vegan every morning and as soon as we arrived they already brought special vegan cornetti. The rooms are well appointed and we stayed in a Imperio room with a breathtaking view of the sea. The new Covid measures make you feel at easy, without feeling awkward at any moment. After dinner we enjoyed drinks on the new roof top bar. The two Michelin star restaurant was a highlight of our stay. The tasting menu is a delight and I highly recommend making sure to dine there one night. Special thanks to Mr Longo and his team for making our mini vacation in Viareggio so special. Grazie mille.
Great stay but a few buts
This is a lovely hotel, great location with great sea views. This review will be a bit picky as this is a 5 star hotel charging top dolllar. We stayed for 8 nights What we loved - Rooms are a generous size well appointed and we slept really well due to the blackout curtains and comfy beds. We also loved the generous water bottles every night and day. Valet parking is brill as garage and your car is under the hotel so easy to access if you forget something and the roof top pool bar has a great wine list and menu. Staff are super helpful and they all take Covid precautions seriously. There is also an arrangement with a Beach club that works well giving you access to amenities and sun beds etc. What we didn’t like (remember we are being picky) - the WiFi is a bit dodgy - it’s difficult to watch a film on Netflix for example. The concierge although excellent, did surprise us with taxi bills of 70 euros for a restaurant bill of 180 euros. The restaurant il Regina, service was off and we found it a tricky menu. We didn’t try the 2 Michelin star place as there is no detailed menu and it’s predominantly seafood - not something the wife enjoys. Overall a lovely hotel, worth the money and I would revisit and recommend.
Perfect evening at "La terrazza",top roof garden in Viareggio!
While in Viareggio I had the chance to visit for a drink this newly made roof garden lounge bar with some friends. The location is just wonderful, right above the "Piccolo Principe" 2 Michelin stars restaurant, from its hight we enjoyed the stunning view which got more and more beautiful as soon as the sun went down. We had 3 cocktails and some very tasty appetizers; overall the place along with a warm and pleasant staff made us feel welcomed and finely cared of. I will definetly come back when I happen to come around and next time I also wish to experience the quality and elegance of its 2* restaurant that looks awesome.
Just what we needed, can highly recommend
We stayed here for 4 nights this week. It was a lockdown antidote which I booked a couple of weeks ago. It’s not cheap but we booked direct with the hotel and the rate included breakfast and beach club. We loved the hotel. It’s a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group. The staff were SO helpful and friendly. Thanks in particular to Chiara Poli at reception who booked us a series of simple but great restaurants in Viareggio which catered for our vegan and veggie daughters. The Dutch pool attendant was also wonderful. The rooms are good - we had two interconnected. The only problem we encountered was that our usual EU travel plugs didn’t work in any but two of the sockets so we fought over who could charge first and for how long! There was no balcony to dry clothes but the beach facing rooms have balconies I think. Good turnout and refresh service of the rooms each evening with bathrobes and slippers provided along with bottled water. The rooftop pool is lovely - very shallow with jacuzzi areas and fountain so not a lap pool but great for lounging in. You do have to wear bathing hats which the staff give you (same rule at the beach club so worth keeping the ones from the hotel as the beach clubs charge). They bring round cool towels and ice cream at intervals. Great rooftop bar for late night drinks and with fantastic food and wonderful views - we had lunch there one day and it was delicious. Breakfast buffet was good. You wear masks to the buffet but can remove at the table obviously. The spa was also open and we had good massages. The gym is small and bookable for one hour at a time due to COVID but it wasn’t busy and we used it one day to do an online zoom Pilates class. We visited two beach clubs - Corallo Beach and La Teresita, both of which were great but La Teresita is more luxurious with gazebos and a lock box per gazebo. Both provide a small lockable changing room cum shower. The beach at Viareggio is AMAZING - massively long soft sandy beach with great waves and beautiful sunsets while we were there. This short stay was everything we hoped it would be and more and the hotel did everything they could to ensure we had a great time. We will be back!
