Recently stayed at the Hotel Ilaria for 2 days in June 2009. We were very fortunate to receive a last-minute booking (bring your Blackberry to Italy --- it is indispensable for making reservations, getting directions, etc) in an apartment in the hotel's adjacent Residencia d'Alba for 230 euro (normally 450). The apartment was huge --- at least 900 square feet, with lovely furnishings, a charming exposed stone wall on one side, a huge king bed, sofa bed, and extra bed to accommodate our three children. The best part of the room, however, was the large round jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. My four-year-old enjoyed it so much that she actually took a bath two times in one day!
The breakfast buffet was the best we found in Italy -- smoked salmon, prosciutto and melon, eggs, and sausage as well as the usual pastries, cereals, and juice. The staff was extremely helpful in providing restaurant recommendations, etc. (highly recommend Trattoria GiGi.) There are cold refreshments available all day, including Diet Coke (normally 3 euro in Italian bars), Prosecco, and wine. Also, free parking and free wi-fi are a big plus. And the hotel has a supply of bicycles for borrowing by the guests, which is terrific. We had such a wonderful time bicycling around the wall surrounding Lucca. Such great memories! We can't wait to go back to Lucca!
