Reviewed 18 July 2010

Lovely Hotel situated 10 minutes walk outside the walls of Lucca. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, rooms very modern and clean. Having a swimming pool in 35 degree heat was heavenly. Good buffet breakfast was included in our room rate. The hotel also have bikes to hire at very reasonable rates.
Would definitely recommend/return

Stayed at The Hotel Sam Marco after our first choice of hotel was not available. I'm glad it wasn't.
The San Marco has recently been renovated. The rooms were a decent size with good closet space and comfy beds. The bathroom was very modern with a great shower and a spacious shower cubicle. The rooms have a safe and a mini bar.
The buffet breakfast was very good with a large variety of food on offer.
The hotel is only five minutes walk the the centre of the old town so it's really convenient no taxis required after a night out.

Location was great, rooms were clean, and price was unbeatable -- great value for Lucca. We got two rooms next to each other for about 150 Euros a night. Hotel is easy 5 minute walk to the walls of Lucca. It was spotless. Breakfast was decent, service overall was great. If we went back to Lucca, we would stay here as it was incredible value for the money.

The location of the hotel compared to the city wall is very convenient.
The staff was outstanding and very helpful.
Unfortunately the front part of the hotel seems to be of poor construction which was reflected in the bathroom (lack of cleaningness of the shower), the noises heard from room to room, the looks of the stairs to the first floor (warned down) and the poor quality of the bed.
The breakfast dining room was very cold! and no fresh fruit. (Italy)

We did not book ahead but showed up at the hotel at noon in early October seeking a room. The man staffing the desk was very courteous and helpful and fluent in English and French. The room was adequate and very clean with modern furnishings. The AC worked well. The bathroom was adequate and clean and well supplied. There is ample free parking where we left our car as we explored the city on foot as the hotel is very close to the walled city. They have bicycles for rent but we did not use them. They did look functional and had the seats covered during the evening when it rained. We did not see the pool. The breakfast was buffet style and very adequate. They even make espresso coffee or cappuccino on request. All of the staff were very helpful and competent. We stayed two nights. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in Lucca.

This is a very good 3 star hotel - just outside the walls in a quiet area, simple, practical, not beautiful, not pretentiious, efficiently managed by informative and always helpful staff. Rooms clean, pool clean - not a very large sitting/sunbathing area round it, but quite adequate. Air-conditioning in the bedrooms functioned properly, also wi-fi internet, free bicycles available, but near enough to walk into town anyway. Light snacks available by the pool at lunchtime. Above all, a nice, friendly atmosphere to relax in.

The Hotel was exellent and I never met as helpful and courtious staff they could not do enough for us and we do appreciate all they done for us. We will certainly be back and this review applys to all the staff.
