"Stayed here for six nights with friends. We used the hotel as a base for visiting Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Lucca. It was a welcome oasis to come back to each day. The swimming pool was lovely. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean. The balcony was great for tea and chat late into the night. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke good English. Breakfast was bountiful. Restaurant next door is highly recommended. Lucca is 10 minutes by car."
"We booked a stay for 6 nights at this hotel, but ended up staying just 2 nights. The first room we got, appeared to be a room for “people with disabilities”, as this was the only room left. The room was extremely small (not appropriate at all for people with disabilities) and many facilities were missing. We then got another room. This room was very outdated. Many furniture were broken, electrical wires were hanging out in the open (dangerous), the walls were filthy and contained some leakages, the mattresses were so bad that it hurt, the beds did not have proper covers and had a strange bad smell, the shower was moldy, the air condition was making such a loud noise we couldn’t sleep and the aircondition was very dusty (not very healthy), the curtains were too short so they couldn’t be closed properly, the balcony door did not close entirely, the bathroom door was broken and we got locked up a couple times, etc etc. There are so many more complaints. So we decided to leave after 2 days. Main reason of our early departure was that we payed 100 euros per night for this room and it was supposed to be a 4 stars hotel. Afterwards, the hotel did not agree with these complaints, even when all the pictures were shared with them. We did not expect such a bad room, especially based on the price per night, the pictures on the website and the 4 stars the hotel has. We are very disappointed. Luckily, booking.com helped us out, but we will not have a second stay at this hotel in the future."
"This hotel is situated in a quite area, 10 minutes outside of Lucca. The room was a bit small and somewhat outdated with a hard mattress on the bed (that can be a positive or negative, depending on your preference). Staff is friendly and breakfast ok! All in all; nice hotel but nothing to remember it about!"

"We loved this property. The rooms, the lobby, the artwork were amazing. The front lobby staff and the service staff were wonderful. The Lido staff excellent. As far as feedback, the food was average at best. The food at the Lido restaurant was mixed. The sushi was excellent, however, the seafood platter was inedible. The breakfast was good."
"Spent three days in early November with family & friends. Unforgettable stay. We felt at home and appreciated very much the nice room and the great service. Although weather did not help, we enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the kids could swim in the swimming pool which was well heated. "
"Dinner being served in a garden setting. Elegant, romantic, superb service. Food well presented and of good quality. Bread service should also have either butter or olive oil rather then only the full variety bread basket. Reservations seem to be not necessary which is an advantage. All in all if a quiet and refined dinner setting is looked for - interesting alternative to the busy Forte Dei Marmi restaurants."

"I loved Albergo Pietrasanta. I think it had the balance between having very comfortable rooms, beds, exquisite decoration and not feeling that it was too much. Breakfast area is so nice as well! If I had to add an 'but' it would be not having fresh orange juice in Italy! The rest was just spotless: amazing staff as well. "
"The hotel itself is very tastefully decorated, both the rooms and common space. The staff was very helpful, providing quality recommendations and accommodation for our family. The hotel also has a nice breakfast spread in a small courtyard, which is quite nice. Highly recommend this hotel if you’re in Pietrasanta. "
"This was our 2nd stay at Albergo Pietrasanta. The hotel is right in the heart of Pietrasanta and everything is easily walk-able. The staff provides amazing customer service, is friendly, helpful and always responsive. It's like going back in time for service but with every modern convenience."

"This was my first visit to Viareggio, and I must say I was a bit trepidatious, not knowing what the weather in January would be. Happily, the gods were smiling and six of my eight days were bright and sunny with temperatures in the lower double digits. The other two were overcast, but without rain. I arrived from Genova by train, and easily grabbed one of the waiting taxis in front of the station for the brief ride to the hotel. The fare was €12 rounded up. During my stay I regularly walked from the hotel to the train station in 25 minutes using the boardwalk (Viale Giosuè Carducci) and turning up Via Leonardo Da Vinci until reaching the station. It was flat terrain and very straightforward. The hotel's facade and location are truly amongst the best in the pretty seaside town. Although 98 years old, the hotel is extremely well maintained and has a number of modern elements that belie its age. My greeting at the Front Desk by Duty Manager Mr. Povoleri was both welcoming and genuine. He took pains in explaining the various features, benefits and policies of the hotel and then personally escorted me to my room. Although not large by North American standards, the room I was assigned was pristine and very tastefully decorated. The king bed was comfortable, and huge for a solo traveller such as myself. There was more than sufficient lighting in both the foyer, bed and bath rooms. My corner room had a partial sea view, as well as one of the Tuscan mountains. I couldn't have asked for better, as I find a full sea view somewhat boring after the first hour or so. Mr. Povoleri offered to raise the temperature in the bed room, but I preferred to keep it cool for sleeping. A touch screen control was at my disposal should I have changed my mind. There was a larger desk, with an easily accessible electrical outlet, that facilitated working on my laptop. Under the desk was a mini bar fridge, stocked with various beverages but with available space for a few extra personal items. Closet space was more than adequate for one or two guests, and included a room safe large enough to accommodate my 13" laptop. A hot water kettle, coffee mugs, coffee/tea/sugar/creamer packets, a corkscrew/bottle opener, wine glasses and a set of tumblers were also provided. The bathroom was a good size, with two large mirrors, as well as a make-up magnifier model. A bidet, WC, vanity sink and a decent size glass shower stall were features of my room, as was a heated towel rack and a large hair dryer. Good quality toiletries were provided in addition to two pairs of slippers and two terry bathrobes. Towels were replenished daily, and I never lacked hot water for my shower and shave. I appreciated that there was a large window that could be opened to dispel the humidity after showering. A radiator could be adjusted to keep the bathroom nice and toasty during the chilly mornings. During my stay, I used Viareggio as the starting point to explore t"
"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."
"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. "

"We had never before visited this area we had done the Cinque Terre and Tuscany but what a wonderful private hotel this is ! Dedicated staff who worked hard to improve our stay.200 metres from the sea and 300 to the town centre. Each evening our room was re-serviced and the bed turned down. The Sky box was nice to relax to after a day touring the coast line.If you want an example of customer care we informed the receptionist of our early departure to find our car had been moved and placed in readiness for our departure.We will steer our friends to the hotel it is superb!"
"Everything about this hotel was superb - which is very rare thing these days! Staff were fantastic always ready to help and nothing was to much trouble Breakfasts were superb with a wonderful homely touch with their cakes ! Lynda the Manageress was just the most brilliant person in every way Very close to beach, town centre and amazing restaurant s We will definitely return"
"The hotel was really nice with its interiors and also outside with the backyard and the stuff was apparently nice too but they try to mislead you. The rooms are too small for the price, we thought we had ordered a deluxe room but it was too small and not suitable for the price at all. During breakfast for some things you have to pay or they try to make you pay something. We had to pay some orange juice we drunk but nobody told us we had to pay it till the check-out .We paid 3 orange juice for 18€. In the room there is no list price for the drinks and the tv doesn’t work if you don’t call someone from the reception. We don’t recommend the hotel at all because they try to fool you with prices. I am sorry to say that because the hotel is actually nice but they have to fix prices because at the end of the day is a 3 star hotel! Regards!"

"Having spent 3 mad days sightseeing in Rome in 30+ heat our family of four travelled to The Logos Hotel and had the most wonderful relaxing 7 days. The hotel itself had a lovely view of the mountains and a short stroll to the beach and beach clubs. It was clean and tidy and the maids cleaned and changed the towels twice daily. The food was varied and although the menu was set the chef was very accommodating and even made us burgers one evening and breakfasts were plentiful. The outside pool area was tranquil and a god send in the heat for a welcoming dip and the seating areas with the home grown lemon trees (which produced the best lemoncello) were a pleasure to sit in either with a drink or evening meal or breakfast. The hotel was peaceful and either a great base to explore the region from or to chill as we did. I have to say the staff were the best we have ever encountered nothing was too much trouble from the receptionists, waiting staff, maids and maintenance guys all their duties done with a smile. A special mention has to go to Eliza who was a breath of fresh air – friendly efficient and went above and beyond the call of duty at all times. She quite simply was lovely and made our stay even more pleasurable. We love Italy and would definitely visit this hotel again. Thank you."
"This place is awesome, the hotel is super clean super cute and well located, but the reason this place is awesome is the staff. Everyone is trying to make your stay better, they are always offering to help or asking if you need anything. I definitely will be back."
"This is the second time we have stayed at the Logos Hotel. Our stay was for eleven nights in a superior room. On checking out and after we had paid for our entire stay by credit card an error in the bill was discovered and the hotel agreed in writing to a refund of 48 euros. The hotel insisted on refunding this money by BACS to our current account even though it would have been easier to do this by cash or credit card refund there and then...They simply refused to do it this way....On return to the UK several attempts were made by email to chase this refund which was never made. In the end we made a claim through the credit card company and bank and were reimbursed...So unnecessary for the Hotel to be evasive in this way!"

"What a lovely hotel! It’s very convenient for both the town and the beach and the staff make you welcome from the moment you arrive. The air conditioning ensures that you have a comfortable nights sleep as do the firm beds. The chamber maids also did a wonderful job ensuring towels were always changed. This is the best hotel we have stayed in in Forte dei Marmi "
"This was one of the best hotels we have stayed at. The apartments were very clean and newly renovated. The location was incredible, very close to the beach and the town. The staff was all very professional and courteous, especially Emanuele. I would come here every year from now on. "
"Got here for a weekend and I absolutely loved this hotel. Staff was very friendly and polite, room was clean and cozy. Lovely breakfast too. Only remarks: my room was a bit small, with a very small shower in the bathroom (err...we are a couple) and air conditioner was quite noisy. But they found me a room despite I booked the day before and it was August. So I thanks them."

"Stayed in this hotel with the Travelsphere group during their Cinque Terre Tour last week. I think the pictures don't quite do the hotel justice. I normally stay in hotels a lot plusher than this but this was the hotel chosen for the tour. I must admit even though it is very basic when it comes to furniture and lacks ambience due to furnishings and colours I cannot fault the cleanliness and the nice staff that were working during my stay. I had a standard double on the first floor towards the front of the hotel facing towards the sea across the road, the room was large bright and airy, simply furnished but with lots of hanging space and drawers, the bathroom was a good size and spotlessly clean - the room is tiled which has good and bad points - nearly slipped twice! The room really was adequate for my stay as I was out during the day - had a safe and hairdryer in bathroom - I took my own travel jug and coffee as there was not tea/coffee making facilities in the room and I do like a cuppa coffee as soon as my eyes open There is a bar but annoyingly they didn't like people taking drinks from the bar into the dining room. The drinks are very sensibly priced Aperol Spritz at 6 euros. The bar staff were chatty, helpful - really nice - cant remember his name but the young Albanian bar/ waiter was very pleasant. I didn't particularly like the food - the salad buffet at the start was far better than the 3 course meal that followed - twice I had fish and eggs that were like rubber! - it was very bland food - and usually turned up luke warm so I wont pass such praise on the food front The young girls on the Reception desk were also so friendly and extremely helpful, always smiling and there to answer any queries - I did actually mention to the manager of the hotel how nice I found all the staff I came across during my stay There is a pool which was clean and had adequate beds/seating - there were bikes to rent which I thoroughly recommend - you can cycle to Viareggio about 45 mins each way The only downside of this area is that the local shops are all designer which if you are not into designer shops leaves you with nothing to do in the evening locally other than eat or drink as there are no nice little shops to stroll in and out of to while away the evening after a meal. The location is good though to use as a base to tour Pisa, Lucca, Lerici, Cinque Terre, Portofino, Portovenere etc It literally is a stones throw across the road to a beach but you are looking at 30 euros plus to hire beds/chairs and you are like sardines! If you are into running and cycling like I am then you will like the way you can run and cycle safely on the designated paths - if you do wave to Andrea Bocelli as you pass his house on the main road!"
"We are just leaving after a wonderful week at this hotel. We are regular visitors to this coast so know the area well and the beach set up which is completely private. The hotel is opposite the beach and the location near the town is perfect. The bus for tours picks up outside and it is very convenient. The pool area is delightful and every member of staff we encountered has been five star. Rooms are typical Italian and housekeeping is of a very high standard. Very good bathroom. There is a lovely bar area to sit during the day or evening and an outside terrace. The restaurant is ok for breakfast with adequate choices and you have the same table throughout your stay. At other hotels in this area we have been very lucky to have a breakfast which included pancakes or omelettes of freshly cooked eggs. That would’ve made the breakfast here even better. We have been a little disappointed with the evening meal not because of the selection which is good particularly the buffet hors d’oeuvres rather the quality and taste of the produce. There seems to be very little actually baked food we never once had a lasagna or cannelloni or Italian basics. To be honest the only disappointment with this stay has been that the food has been uninspiring and a little disappointing. Our holiday was excellent value and to eat out in this area is very very expensive. We do not want haute cuisine just something that is more tasty. So this is a very positive review about an expertly managed hotel. We have received better service in this little hotel in Tuscany from every member of staff than in world-class five-star hotels. It is a very homely environment here and very welcoming. The reception team are knowledgeable and very lovely. Finally it’s worth pointing out that in spite of this hotel being in one of the most expensive resorts in Italy the bar prices here are very very reasonable. I expect we will be back next year. "
"We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the hotel which is in a great location, close to excellent beaches, restaurants, bars and designer shops. Our air conditioned room was comfortable and the balcony had a decent side sea view. The hotel has a nice pool with plenty of loungers and we regularly used the bar and terrace next to the pool for pre-dinner drinks. We stayed on a half board basis and, whilst the breakfast choices were limited (the only hot food was scrambled egg and bacon, which was undercooked, or sausages), the four course evening meals were excellent. We were highly impressed with all of the staff at the hotel, from the receptionists to the bar and restaurant staff. Our waiters Anxhelo and Alise both deserve a special mention having looked after us brilliantly. The hotel is in a good position for visiting many of the ‘must see’ places in Tuscany and Liguria and during our stay we went to Pisa, Lucca, the Cinque Terre, all of which are within an hour’s journey. We also visited Portofino and Genoa which are up to 2 hours away but well worth the journey."
