We have stayed at the San Francisco about 4 times. Each occasion during the carneval di Viareggio. The position for seeing the masked parede is superb especially if you reserve a room with balcony over the viale. The rooms are not large but everything is there for your need, the linen is spotless, as is the cleanliness is the shower room and the rest of the hotel. The staff very helpful and friendl. It is only a bed and breakfast which is adequate

The hotel is located along the beachfront. Typical Italian 3-star hotel, small room but you have everything you need, our room was on 2nd floor with the balcony.
We had beautiful view to the beach but there was a little bit of noise from the road in front of the hotel.
Breakfast is good. The staff is really friendly and helpful.
There is no parking at hotel, you need to use public parking on the street (payable).

Room tip: Room with the balcony and sea view!

My family and I spent a long weekend at this hotel. Located right on the passeggiata, our rooms offered a beautiful view of the sea. The hotel staff is very kind and always helpful to ensure a pleasant stay. We found the rooms being very clean and comfortable, each one having a small balcony to enjoy the view on the beach.
The breakfast is served on the ground floor and can be enjoyed in a cozy courtyard on the back of the hotel. The food offering is quite small but variety is enough to satisfy anyone's tastes.

We stayed at the San Francisco mid-April. We were travelling as a couple and the purpose of our trip was a romantic weekend break. Prior to our visit, we had read that the hotel could be noisy so we emailed ahead of time to request a quiet room. As a result, our room was on the top floor and situated at the side of the building. It was quiet which suited us. The hotel was clean and decorated in a low-key style. The room had everything we needed, including a mini-fridge, a clean bathroom with walk in shower, a safety deposit box, comfortable beds. Breakfast was a good selection of cereals, meats, cheeses, breads and pastries. No fruit though. Coffee was excellent.
There was free wifi which worked reasonably well though the process for obtaining the code was slightly convoluted. The hotel is well located on the sea front so it’s easy to walk on the promenade to see the beach & visit other restaurants, as well as walking to Viareggio train station to get trains to Pisa, Luca and Firenze etc.
The staff were welcoming and pleasant and overall this was a comfortable, low-key, unpretentious base from which to explore Viareggio.

The pictures on the site hint at the style of the property, but I wasn't quite expecting as much 'glamour' and Americanism (yes I know its called the San Francisco!). The lift is faux-gold, there was a fake pillar in the room, and mirrors everywhere, including on all of the hotel room doors. The shower spat water out at about 100 different angles, but it was definitely powerful.

Being on 'the strip' there was quite a bit of noise from the street and bars. Also the walls between the rooms are pretty thin, so you know what time everyone is getting in and who's talking to who.

The main selling point of the hotel is definitely the location. Next door to The Grand Hotel, almost opposite the trendy Fanatiko bar, and obviously if you have a West facing room, great sea views. That said the hotel staff were very friendly and keen to offer recommendations and advice.
