We picked this hotel based on its good reviews and its convenient location just 10 minutes from Pisa, Lucca, and the Florence autostrada. It more than met our expectations. The rooms where comfortable and clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The very popular restaurant offered good food and good service for a modest amount of money. The... More

This isn't a terrible hotel; room was large and clean, but furnished very ugly and depressingly. Shower had absolutely no pressure - but there was bath so I used it instead. No shampoo and soap (to speak of), bring your own. Horrible breakfast - but, a wonderful pasterria (wish also superb ice cream) about 5 min driving towards Luccia. Location... More

This review is for the restaurant at this hotel. Me and my family were on our way from Pisa to Lucca. The road is very beautiful but it was middle August so it was simply too hot! We were driving with open windows despite the air conditioner. So we decided to make a stop and make a refreshing pause. At... More

The Hotel da Carlos is a little gem of a find and we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay there. We chose the hotel after reading the other reviews and I was initially concerned because we didn’t intend to hire a car while we were there and, instead, wanted to get around by bus. I emailed the hotel beforehand to... More

Difficult to explain why this little hotel feels so special to so many people from so many different countries but after reading some of the previously written reviews it soon becomes obvious that this "special" feeling is something many of us share. The review of fellow-guests the "mccleans"made me smile because we, too originally booked a short stay (3 nights)... More

We found this hotel by accident at the end of a 10 day trip to Tuscany. Thought we'd just stay a night but enjoyed it so stayed for two. Really comfortable, excellent room with a great view, great friendly staff. Genuine people who care. I'd been mosquito bitten in every hotel we'd stayed in Tuscany. I looked like Frankenstein meets... More

Our traveling party found this hotel to be surprisingly special. We were trying to visit Lucca but found the hotels closest to to city expensive and/or unavailable. The Da Carlos is 15 minutes out of Lucca so there was not a problem with a car. First, we were struck with the personal feeling of the hotel personnel. When we called... More

I stayed here with my husband for 3 days. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and nice people. A great breakfast in the mornings. You are in between Pisa and Lucca, so it's a good location to visit both cities. lucca is really a nice city. There is also the restaurant which has great food, their... More

If you are want a hotel with uniformed commisionaires, bell-hops and snooty counter staff, this isn't for you. If you want warmth and friendliness, then it is. Da Carlos is a family-run hotel, a bit worn at the edges, well placed for Pisa and Lucca (a walled town not to be missed - the walls are the thickest I have... More

We loved it at Hotel Da Carlos. Great prices, great people, and great views. The beds were comfortable the restaurant was great. We got the chance to meet Carlos and he was very kind and welcoming. If you ever get a chance to come to Lucca please stay here. My girlfriend and I truly enjoyed it.
