This is a tricky review to get right. Lots of positives - free parking, friendly reception, plenty to eat at breakfast (although sometime of a wait for good, strong coffee...I challenge you to catch the waiter's eye!).
Our room had a small entrance lobby and right before us was a nice-sized bathroom: plenty of space, decent shower, and nice toiletries.
The trouble was that the room was very small...marginally bigger than the bathroom...and cramped even more by the presence of two single beds. The decor was a bit tired and bland...little thought to style, which is surprising given the attractiveness of the rest of the hotel. It was also a funny shape.
The location was ideal for exploring Lucca, which can easily be accomplished on foot.
Italian hotels are pricey so the price we paid of 133 Euros was probalby about right, allowing for the parking and breakfast.
A final amusing note was that the stairwells were all fitted with breast-shaped bowls, each with its own black 'nipple'. When arranged in pairs, they looked a very good imitation of a well-endowed bust!
