Stayed here for 2 nights in order to visit Pisa by train.

The location of the hotel literally next door to the train station could not be more convenient, with the old walled town just over the road.

We really liked this hotel, genuine family run hospitality with good rooms. Reception staff were mostly family and very helpful and liked to talk, which made you feel welcome.

Our room looked out over the grassy square with fountain in front of the hotel and station and was quite peaceful. Room was a good size, beds were really comfortable, bathroom was modern and spacious, plenty of room in the minibar fridge, plenty of hanging space. Wifi was good and stable.

Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and there is even the chance to eat at the tables outside if you want.

Lucca town is a delight to walk around and must be one of the best preserved walled towns in the world along with York. The walk around the top of the walls is an enjoyable experience if you can dodge all the joggers!

We visited the Puccini Museum which was excellent, very well laid out and informative.

A day trip to Pisa on the train is easy to do from the hotel. Trains run every half hour and the journey takes about 20 mins. We found it easiest to buy tickets at the automated machines rather than queue, or you can buy tickets at the newsagents inside the station.

Pisa is an interesting place with lots of cafes to stop and watch the world go but, and the leaning tower should be on everyone’s bucket list to visit – it leaned far more than we anticipated and the experience of walking up and round the viewing platform is memorable.

Highly recommend the Hotel Rex as great value and would certainly return.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have nice view of the square

After a long tiring day, touring by car, we arrived in the centre of Lucca. What a relief to see the 3* Hotel Rex. After meeting the manager everything went from good to better! He left his desk to guide me into a free-parking space. Opposite the hotel, white lines mean spaces are free, blue lines mean there is a fee.
We really needed an evening meal. Again the manager came to our aid. He recommended the Da Francesco Trattoria Pizzeria and kindly got on the 'phone and booked us a table for two. Booking was essential, as the restaurant is very popular.The hotel owner, a genial 98 years old, supplied us with a handy map and showed us the close proximity of the restaurant.
Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. We had time to enjoy a refreshing shower and take advantage of the tea and coffee making facility, in our room.
The main line station is but a stones throw away from the hotel, but throw away any thoughts of being disturbed. I wasn't aware of any trains and slept soundly.
We only required to stay the one night. Our double room cost €90, which was really good value, as a most plentiful breakfast was included in the price. A further €3 covered the city tax.
The Hotel Rex was truly excellent. It is ideally and conveniently placed to tour Lucca or to take the train. Our bed and room were really comfortable. The staff were most generous with their help. All in all this made our stay a thoroughly pleasing and memorable one.

Often we avoid hotels near the station because of noise and dodgy environment but in Lucca it is picturesque and an easy walk thru wall to the old town. Big rooms, nice breakfast, efficient really nice staff....and easy parking

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the piazza are light and airy.
