We were very excited about this hotel booking in Viareggio. Although the hosts did not speak too much English, we seemed to understand each other through mimics and google translate. We booked a small room and seemed nice, however quite dark, and most importantly, it had an unpleasant smell from the bathroom, once we turned on the water on the bathroom sink. It could have been smell from the tubes, but was still unpleasant and the smell got into the entire room. The host proposed to solve this with a air freshener, but that was not enough, so we wanted to change the room. The second room was also small, according to our booking, but still even darker than the first one, with both balcony and window not facing directly outside. The bathroom was so small that you could barely sit on the toilette and the shower was not very well designed, as a large quantity of water flooded the entire bathroom floor after just a small shower. Bed mattress was really hard and we had back pains in the morning, while cleanliness was not the best - a lot of dust under the shabby shick lamps and not so pleasant smell from the wardrobes. In the morning we asked to leave the property, since we did not want to spend the rest 7 nights in this atmosphere. Unfortunately, the hosts were a bit hostile and seemed not to understand our complaints, saying that these were little things. However, sometimes little things can mean much more than you think. I am not saying the property is bad, we asked some guests at that time and they seemed to enjoy the rooms and amenities (they booked larger rooms) I am just explaining our experience and not recommending the small rooms, if you are a person who loves light and comfort in a room. If you are just there to enjoy the beach and are not so sensitive to where you sleep, that the choice is perfectly fine. Around 7 minutes to the beach, and close to the train station. However, you can find cheaper alternatives at 2 start villas/hotels, with a greater comfort!

Property looks old and dirty , but the worst thing is the very rude Owner . This “ gentleman “ has no idea how to treat clients and after we decided to leave the property as it was not as advertised on booking.com ( we informed booking) and as it has more than 20steeep stairs to arrive at the rooms ( is not mentioned anywhere) the owner insulted us in every way . Unfortunately this are the people that ruin the b&b market, if you are tired of your job and you “hate” the world is better not to deal with public.

Well within budget and for the price you wouldn't need anything more. This is a lovely guesthouse, approx 130 years old and full of character. The couple who run it, are very welcoming and friendly. They do not speak much English, which is good for me - it makes the visit more authentic, traditional and very Italian. I would highly recommend this place.

Hotel La Petite Maison was an absolute delight. The B&B is a rustic and traditional Tuscan property, hence, when you stay there you feel like you are in real Tuscany. On top on this, the B&B was always clean and had a friendly atmosphere. However, the standout aspect was the staff. La Petite Maison is a family owned business and you get all the benefits of that. All the staff were fantastic and we felt like guests in a home. As well as this they were also extremely helpful when we made some personal mistakes. They were so warm and welcoming that we almost felt like family throughout the stay. Even when we left they gave us the traditional Italian goodbye with the kisses and hugs from every staff member. Overall I would recommend this hotel to any family or friend as they make you feel like friends and family.

We stayed here for one night en route from Milan to Tuscany. This is a really unique and charmingly styled hotel. There has been such careful attention paid to the vintage neoclassical theme of every room - it's like stepping back in time. Run by an elderly couple, you're made to feel at home immediately. Our room had a four-poster bed and a charming patio. The only thing I would change is the location - approx 15-20 mins walk to the town centre. Also the breakfast is VERY basic, but then again the couple who manage the place are getting on a bit. Still, a boiled egg or two wouldn't go amiss!

This hotel is charming and quant, family run the room was clean and basic, the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen but again was clean. Breakfast was fine and mainly consisted of fresh pastries, the family were friendly and we felt very welcome, just a short walk from the promenade this hotel was a nice base for a short stay.

We stayed here for a week at the beginning of September and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome by the family who run the hotel. They were so friendly and helpful and by the end of the week it felt like we were staying in their family home! We stay in a lot of modern large hotels and so this would not usually be the kind of place I'd give a 5/5 review but we really can't fault it. It has a beautiful charm. Yes the rooms are small but I think they've done very well with what they've got. There was plenty of storage space in our room despite its size and the bed was a good large double. The bathroom was fine with a good powerful shower. The only thing lacking in the room was tea and coffee making facilities but when you're in Italy you really shouldn't be making instant coffee anyway! We were in the room named Stefanie. It was cleaned well every day and towels changed if we left them on the floor (you can hang them up to help the environment by re using them so we did this as much as possible). Breakfast perhaps could have done with a bit more variety as there's only so much sugar I can take in the morning but it's just the Italian way... Coffee and pastries for breakfast! They did also have cereal, yoghurt, fruit, bread, meat and cheese. Plus a different cold option each morning. We rented the hotel bikes for a day. A bargain at 5 euros each for the day and a handy way to see more of Viareggio. The hotel is not on the front but that's actually one of its main selling features! It's away from the tourist tat and busy tourist area and the over priced poor quality restaurants. Instead it is near the market where you'll find some lovely authentic restaurants and Pizzerias. It's also very handy for the station which not only helped on arrival and departure but for the day trips we took to Pisa, Lucca and Florence. I would definitely stay here again if I came back to Viareggio.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at la petite maison. I came to viareggio for a relaxing beach holiday and although the town itself is pretty touristy the hotel made my trip. You can hire a bike for the day at a cheap price, and the breakfast was delicious. The owners did not speak much English but communication was fine and it was a good chance to practice some italian. Highly recommended.

This little family-run hotel isn't on the beach, but it is near the busy market-center of Viareggio and only a few blocks from the train station. I enjoyed the personal attention and the comfort. This is not an anonymous chain place.

We stayed in this hotel during July. It is a very charming hotel but our stay was ruined by some money being stolen from our room. I wasn't going to review but have just seen a similar comment on another holiday website by a Russian lady who stayed here in August so obviously our experience wasn't a one off. The owners were extremely unsympathetic and basically told us it was "impossible". I wonder if the Russian lady reported it and was also told this! We discovered the loss midweek and the rest of our stay was awkward as we were tolerated and almost shunned. We felt we were the criminals! I've written this because it could happen to someone else. Do not leave any money in your room during the day!
