This was in a perfect location, very close to the centre yet away from the busy streets. It was very comfortable, though the aircon was a bit noisy in our room, with a beautiful bathroom. The breakfasts were a treat with piles of freshly prepared fruits as well as the usual fare. A very enjoyable stay!

Exemplary service, free newspapers, free all day coffee/snack bar. Beautiful secluded terrace. Free bikes to borrow for as long as you need- the perfect way to explore the city and the ancient walls. Hotel is situated just inside the old city walls, easy walking to the shops and restaurants, 10 mins from the train station with regular trains to Pisa and Florence. Only down side is the daily parking charge, but can park just 10 mins away for free. (Hotel staff will give directions).

A great hotel in a lovely Tuscan city. If holidaying in this part of Italy, we can highly recommend this hotel. The hotel location is fab if you are driving with easy access to the city gates. Staff are very friendly and speak excellent English if your Italian isn't up to scratch! When we arrived, we were upgraded to a superior double which was spacious and tastefully decorated. Our room was situated in the hotel buildings a very short walk from the main hotel which suited us well. Breakfast had lots of choice and we were never found wanting plus throughout the day, the hotel provides free coffee, soft drinks and cakes. The hotel has car parking but charges €15 a night. Fortunately we found parking our rental car on the space immediately outside the hotel for free was fine. We are planning to returning to Tuscany soon and would most certainly consider this hotel without reservation.

My spouse and I stayed here for 5 nights in June 2014. We found it to be nicely situated with very good amenities. The location for us was ideal. Not smack in the middle of the busiest areas of the city, but close enough to walk anywhere we wanted to go. Or, when we tired of walking, the hotel had bicycles that could be borrowed. This was an excellent feature that allowed us to rest our feet for a while yet continue to see the excellent sights of Lucca. This was an especially nice way to make the circuit around the famous Lucca wall. We borrowed bikes a couple of times; each time we wanted to ride there were bicycles available. The bikes were in reasonably good repair and came in various sizes. They are single speed, so they don’t go especially fast, but who needs to go fast when in such a beautiful city? There are locks on each one, so it is easy to make stops whenever needed.
One of the best amenities was the breakfast. It was the best selection of items I have ever encountered at any hotel. Huge variety of options, including large bowls of several kinds of fruit, bacon, eggs, gravlax, various cold cuts, various cereals, various juices, various pastries, various coffees, including an espresso machine. We really enjoyed this feature. Another amenity that we liked was the availability of refreshments throughout the day, juices, soft drinks, coffee and snacks, all included in the bill.
One disappointment we had was that the hot tub did not seem to be working properly when we were there. We couldn’t make the temperature very hot when we tried it on one occasion. Well, we weren’t really visiting Lucca to sit in the hot tub. We also found the tub in our room drained very slowly, which meant there was standing water when showering. Not a major complaint, but coupled with the hot tub issue causes me to award 4 stars, instead of 5.
We found the staff to be cordial, helpful and professional. Most spoke English quite well. If I am fortunate enough to visit Lucca again I hope to stay at this hotel.

We stayed here for two nights in August. Elegant hotel, with wooden floor in the room, nice breakfast, and snacks during the day. After 18 o'clock free Prosseco is served:) Walking distance to the old city center, near the wall, bicyclesare free of charge, you can use it for wall trip around the Old city.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July as close to the open air theatre at Torre del lago where we had tickets for Madame Butterfly. The hotel was very comfortable and offered a small cafe for cool drinks and coffee and delicious little cakes (very nice) during the day. The hotel also has bikes for guests use which is a great way to see the city.The reception staff could not have been more helpful, arranging transport to the opera and ringing ahead to confirm ticket pick up on the day. We loved Lucca and this comfortably furnished hotel was perfect for our needs.

It was the second time we stayed in this hotel and we specifically wanted a room in the annexe. We like the design, the space. Very good price/value. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The bikes, the coffeemaker in the room; all the extra's make this a wonderful experience. We will certainly chose this hotel again when we cme back to Lucca

Room Tip: The suites in the annexe are really special!
