Playa is a family hotel, newly renovated and with very helpful and friendly staff. Our room had a nice balcony with sun in the afternoon and with a view of the luxury small shops along the street closest to the see and the playa. For a deasent amount of money the hotel offered admittance to the beach with sun loungers...

My friend and I stayed Hotel Playa for two days and found it to be charming. It's a small hotel off the Main Street through this beach cute town. It's a quick walk to the beach, the shops and restaurants. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and always very upbeat and engaging. I highly recommended this hotel.

I've travelled a lot of the world and stayed in some great 5 star hotels and some not so great hotels. But the playa has by far the most friendly and welcoming staff in all the hotels I've been in the world, they are great even with a slight language problem with some... It's situated 30 seconds from the beach...

Unsure as to why this place has such a high rating. Location is great but other than that am failing to see what the fuss is about. Room in need of a make over and the air con was down right rubbish....would have had a cooler breeze off an ice cream! Spoke to staff about this twice and was ignored...

Our family room, four beds, was the ugliest hotel room I have seen since the 80s, perhaps the 70s. The hotel was characterized by a lack of interest, e g the grumpy receptionist in the ugly reception. Nobody can have changed a lamp or painted a wall there in decades. Rather terrible hotel experience. However, I must be fair, the...

The breakfast was OK but variety could have been better: there were mainly sweet foods. We don't have any information about the lunch / dinner because we ate out. The hotel is near the beach about 2 minutes on foot. We got discount from the hotel for the beach (there is no free beach in Viareggio!). There is no private...

Hotel playa was a bit hard to find but was clean & staff spoke a little English. Parking is €8 on the road for 24hours. Walking to the beach is across the road & there are plenty of bars close by. Rooms are clean but a double bed means two singles together. No traffic noise & had a good nights...

The hotel is located next to the Grand Hotel Royal. It was hard to find without knowing this fact as Via Saffi is short & not well marked. The hotel is unpretensious. The rooms are clean. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast was teriffic. Get a balcony room for a view of the sea.

I spent 4 days at the Hotel Playa in May 2009. The hotel is placed about 150 metres from the beach and is very close to the designer shops of Viareggio. The hotel itself is very clean and the rooms are of a comfortable size. We had one with a balcony from which you could see the sea and the...
