Would highly recommend this hotel, staff were very friendly, nice rooms, very clean. Only bad point for me was no tea or coffee making facilites in room, but we knew this in advance and took a travel kettle. Fantastic location very central, good choice for breakfast. I had emailed in advance that it was our mums 70th birthday and the staff left a card and bottle of bubbly in the room.

Room Tip: We had a river view and others were looking out over the church, personally I wouldnt bother paying...

This hotel is located on the river and is a short walk from all the attractions in Florence. It was very clean, quiet, and the staff was helpful and accommodating Our room had a balcony, and we loved the view of the river. The breakfast was included and was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed three nights in this hotel overlooking the Arno River and I would definitely recommend. Great location within easy walking distance of major attractions including the Ponte Vecchio bridge and Uffizi. The hotel's décor is old-school and charming; rooms are not huge but ours overlooked Santa Croce which was very nice. Each night we enjoyed cocktails either before or after dinner in the lounge area. One night, we decided to eat at the hotel after a long day of sightseeing (plus it was raining out!) and it turned out to be one of the best dinners we had during our trip. Try the gnudi! The service was excellent - front desk, restaurant, and lounge. The concierge was very helpful in confirming our tour, calling taxis, etc. Would definitely return here.

Dear Tripadvisor Member,

We are pleased who has remained satisfied with the hotel and our location. I agree with you in having enjoyed the view from your room of the Santa Croce Church and the Cathedral.

And finally, we thank you for your compliments to our restaurant, to the bar and all of our staff. During your next stay in Florence do not forget to visit us so we will show you the big news as the swimming pool and sky bar on our roof that will be ready at the end of June.

Best Regards.

This is a lovely hotel very well situated in Florence. It was easy to walk everywhere! Our room was not huge but it was adequate and the bathroom was a good size with just a shower. Our room overlooked an alley but if you looked up you could see a small park and a bell tower. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They made arrangements for all the tours we wanted to go on and also the train tickets we needed for our next leg of the trip. I can't say enough good things about the breakfast. The selection was huge! The tables were nicely set and always freshened when a guest left. I would definitely stay here again.

Had 2 nights at the Lucchese Hotel and absolutely loved it. Location and outlook is amazing. Easy walk to see anything and also to get to main square. Staff very friendly and helpful. Gentleman in bar makes excellent cocktails. Would definitely stay here again. Our room looked over the river and hills. Beautiful.

Room Tip: I would be happy with any room.

We spent two nights in this hotel and saw the sightsof Florence by foot, all of which are easily reached in a short space of time.

We were pleasantly surprised by the view from our room, a terriffic view of the river and hillside.
Room and bathroom were spacious, nicely decorated and with nice furniture.

Breakfast had a very good selection of hot and cold and was overseen by very observant and helpful staff. Hint: if you don't want run of the mill coffee from the dispensors then ask staff for a special coffe, cappuccino etc and you will get a fresh one free of charge.
There is a spacious lounge area which is nice to make use of if you get stuck with bad weather like we did.

One of the things that made this hotel stand out for me was the staff, if you need any help at all planning your visits in Florence see the concierge he helped us a lot, the porter was also very firendly and helpful.

One thing to add - be very careful when leaving the hotel by car, we received a fine for driving in a historic area having followed instructions from the hotel staff. It is not clearly signed - especially if you can not read Italian!

Dear Guest of Tripadvisor,

we truly appreciated your feedback on our Hotel Plaza Lucchesi and in particular our staff thanks you for your kind words about the helpfulness and the warm welcome you received.

We are glad that you enjoyed our river view room recently renewed with its details.

We thank for the attention given to the variety of our breakfast products and the constant presence and helpfulness of our staff.

We are sorry you have received a fine for joining our hotel because of the close proximity to the city center of Florence which is a limited traffic area.

In fact we recommend for anyone who wants to get there by car to follow the driving directions on our website or send an email to our concierge who will be glad to give the information required to reach our Hotel.

Best regards
