We were really looking forward to staying at this hotel after reading all the great reviews but unfortunately came away slightly disappointed based on same. Pros: The Hotel is full of charm and character and the location is superb in beautiful Lucca. The rooms were spacious and very clean with comfortable beds and pillows.
You can get a bus to Pisa airport for 3 euros and the bus stop is only 5 minutes walk away, the journey takes about 45 minutes. You can also walk to the hotel from the main railway station in under 20 minutes. The staff were all very helpful at all times and we could not fault them, but this is what one would expect from it's 4 star standard and room rates.
Cons: Noise does travel a lot between floors which would certainly interrupt any light sleepers, but this is an old historic hotel and nothing can be done about this but it still should be noted.
Breakfast: For us the major let down was the basic breakfast offered. What was on offer was very sparse compared to other Italian/European hotels we have stayed in. In my opinion major improvements could be made in this area which is reflected in my rating !
