“Great base to explore Lucca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2009

We chose Hotel Melecchi based on Trip advisor reviews, location and parking.
We were greeted by Giovanni who throughout our two week trip was possibly the friendliest and most helpful hotelier we encountered.
Our room was clean and spacious and perfectly comfortable; we didn't experience any noise at night as the hotel is a 5 - 10 minute walk to the main gates through a nice neighbourhood.
The breakfast was pretty basic but not terrible and this was more than made up for by the service, location and rooms.
We'd definitely stay at Melecchi again if we returned to Lucca which is well worth a visit.

This is a small family run hotel with amazing friendly service. It felt like we were guests in their home, and that we were the only people there. It is a basic hotel with large rooms and comfortable beds and for 70 euros per night including breakfast, parking, free bicycle hire and amazing service, you can't go wrong. There is a balcony outside to have breakfast on too. The hotel is not within the city walls, which means it is very easy to get to by car, and it is literally a 2 min walk to the city walls - so the best of both worlds.
Lucca is an amazing city with a very laid back feel to it. We would definitely recommend cycling around the old city walls (which we did about 4 times) and a restaurant called Gli Orti di Via Elisa which Giovanni recommended to us, with excellent food and wine at reasonable prices.

This was one the best and best valued hotels I have stayed in while in Italy. Lucca is a great place and this hisotel is located with just a one minute walk outside the Lucca wall. So everything is in walking distance. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nice room, good value. Thanks.

I decided to stop in the Hotel Melecchi looking at the previous reviews on trip advisor. I booked for 2 nights, but we decided to extend our stay for an extra two days. The hotel is small, very well located, quiet and really really clean! It's a family driven hotel and all the staff was very kind and exceptionally helpful with us! The price was great (70 euros, over Easter period) including a good breakfast. I could also enjoy a fast wii-fi connection.
Definetely a hotel to recommend to young couples!

Date: November 4, 2008

Reviewer: Senior male single traveller from the United States

I stayed at the Hotel Melecchi for two nights in October 2008 in the course of a ten-night trip to Italy. The Hotel Melecchi represented excellent value. The hotel is well located, a short walk from one of the gates into Lucca, a pleasant and interesting town in its own right and a good base from which to visit other nearby locations of interest. The hotel has its own interior parking area. When I visited, the hotel was full and, although parking was tight, I was still able to park without problem. My room was of adequate size, had all the necessary facilities and was clean. The breakfast, which is included in the room price, was simple but adequate although it should not be noted that, during my trip, I found that some Italian hotels in this price range are now offering more elaborate and interesting breakfasts. The most exceptional feature of this family-run hotel was the staff. The young man of the family in particular was extremely pleasant and helpful, and speaks serviceable English when that is necessary.

We had a wonderful stay in Lucca and it was in great part due to the extreme friendliness of the hotel staff.
They were so helpful while planning our daily trips and always knew the best places to go and eat true Tuscan foods.
I will come back to this hotel everytime I travel to this lovely region.

From: Richard, Ipswich, UK
I was looking for a base in Lucca for a break with my wife, sister and brother-in-law.
My criteria were: easy parking, walking distance from the old city, and value for money.
The reviews for Hotel Melecchi were encouraging, and I was not disappointed. For the price category the accommodation is excellent, and the staff are most welcoming and helpful. Giovanni's English is excellent, and he is very happy to share his local knowledge. If your interest is English Premier League, you will find him well-informed.
