“Hotel on busy ring road opposite Lucca wall.”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Conveniently located just outside the wall of Lucca. We had a room looking onto the road and it was very noisy. No doubt, a room at the back of the hotel would have been a lot quieter. The breakfast was the best part of the stay. For a four star hotel, it is no better than average at best. I have stayed at better three star hotels. Welcome was luke warm, no help with luggage or guidance to the room, in fact not even told exactly where the room was. Some staff were reasonably friendly. It is quite difficult to find anything particularly positive about this hotel. I have stayed at a lot worse, and this is actually the best thing that I can say about it.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back, or better still, don't visit Lucca in the first place.

We've stayed one night visiting Lucca. Nice place, just outside Porta Elisa. Easy place to visit Lucca. Free parking (a plus if you're travelling by car). Nice bathroom. Did not try the spa there. Good breakfast for start the day. They offer bike for free if you want to explore the area.

Conveniently located hotel just outside the walls of Lucca, easy to find, with carparking. The room was a little small but had everything we needed. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast had a very good selection. We enjoyed a lovely walk around the walls.

Right outside the walls of Lucca.
In walking distance the centre of Lucca.
Some nice bars and restaurants also in walking distance.
The hotel provides bikes to its guest, which come in really handy.
Nice clean room and helpful staff.
Nice outside seating area to relax in after cycling around Lucca.

On our tour of Tuscanny. Our last stop off was to Lucca. We arrived by train from Florence, and although it was only a 10 minute walk, it took us a wee while to locate it, at one point we thought we were walking in the wrong direction. However, although it did not stand out, it was a hidden gem and we were so pleased to have found it. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful and even printed out train times and gave us advice on getting back to Pisa airport. We found our room to be very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was well organised with a large selection of self service items. However, one of the very best things about the hotel is the free loan of bicycles! Having not been on a bike for years we had a wobbly practice in the carpark and then we had 3 wonderful days touring around the walls and scooting around the narrow streets, stopping for a coffee, ice cream or when a shop or wine bar caught our eye. There was a market we spied from up on the walls and we went down and bought fresh bread, parma ham olives and cheese and had a great al fresco picnic at a picnic bench on the walls overlooking Lucca with our bikes propped up against a tree - pure magic! The Celide is just on the outside of the walls, but just opposite an entrance opening so really it was not an issue. The free loan of the bikes saved us quite a bit in hire charges and allowed us to see more of Lucca than we could have done by foot. I would not hesitate to recommend a visit to Lucca and a stay at this hotel!

Great location...10 minute walk from the train station. After being in Florence, refreshing to be in a small city. the hotel is everything you need. It is a business hotel, so up to date, for travelers. Nice to have an elevator! Breakfast was very nice. My Wi-Fi was spotty, so went into the lobby to connect. Lucca is a great city to visit, lucky to be there on market day, very fun, and bought a few things to bring home. Borrow a bike and ride the city walls.!

Room Tip: I do not think there is a bad room in this hotel.

After walking just about 10 minutes from the train stations, the hotel is situated perfectly outside the main walls of Lucca. Another short walk into the center of the city, the hotel was perfectly located. The room was perfectly fine, except they use a rather strong grape diffuser, which we tried to air out by leaving the windows open while we were gone. The best part about this hotel is that they offer bikes to ride around the city! This was our favorite part of our visit to Lucca. Riding along the top of the city walls and through the cute streets really made out trip. We were able to use the bikes all day with no charge or problem. The staff was very accommodating and sweet and we had a lovely chat with the bartender in the lobby before our dinner reservation.
