This lovely, small hotel is truly a special spot. We stayed there for 2 nights to get away from the chaos and noise of Firenze in the throes of tourist season and were not disappointed. We were in camere due which faces the side street (via Busdraghi) and has a whirlpool tub worth the price of the room by itself. But what really makes this quiet hotel so different from so many others we've been in is the people. Andrea, Ingrid and Marta are simply the best. They are kind, helpful and genuinely happy to spend time with you and get to know you. We loved our stay here so much we just went back again this week and they accommodated us in camere due, which was not available when I initially made the reservation.
The room's appointments are comfortable and aesthetically pleasing without being fussy. The separate bath and separate entranceway with large armoire are a plus and add more space to an already generously-sized room, which has a large (queen) bed and a separate single bed/divan. Lighting is great especially the wall reading lamps. The bed is very comfy, so comfy we slept far longer than usual. The room has been painted with care, especially the ceiling. Free wi-fi is a plus.
Andrea recommended 2 restaurants to us, Amodonostro and Canuleia, both of which far exceeded the meals we've had in Firenze. All the staff at Busdraghi know their city and are full of information if you do not know Lucca.
This hotel is located on via Filungo, Lucca's main shopping street. Be sure to ask for a room facing via Busdraghi if noise bothers you.
We love this hotel and we love Lucca. We will return to the Busdraghi, which now feels like a second home to us!
