This is a great hotel, quirky (in a good way), ideally placed with a homely feel. It is not at all pretentious and great value. All the staff here are very friendly and helpful, especially with restaurant recommendations and suggestions for evening entertainment.
We had room 12 (10, 11 & 12 are all on the ground floor and are family rooms). It is a small room with a seating area, tea/coffee making facilities,mini bar, bathroom and then stairs to a mezzanine level where there is a double and single bed. As a family room there was a rack with a small selection of toys, children's books and pens/colouring pencils - a great idea. The bathroom was quaint but clean, plenty of hot water and good water power from the shower.There are basic toiletries but they did include shower caps and vanity sets, the latter often missing from higher ranked hotels. Towels (plenty) are the traditional white cotton ones which were beautifully ironed and crisp.
Breakfast is served inside or outside and a good selection too; yoghurts, fresh and dried fruits, cheese/ham breads etc. Even here children are not forgotten with special cutlery /crockery specifically for them.
The hotel is close to the train station and just outside the walls to Lucca's centre. Ideal. Once inside the room is quiet and you don't get any traffic/train noise.
All in all, an Italian gem. Bravo , mi piace!
You can get the train to Pisa airport from Lucca although currently there is a bus to/from Pisa centrale to the airport.
