As mentioned in other reviews, location was perfect - half way between Pisa and Lucca. Owners very friendly, the hotel was like going back in a time warp to the 1970s. Room was brilliant, terrace, fully equipped bathroom - with AC. Safe and plentiful parking at the back.The "Skipper" restaurant served good food, and was full of Italians - good... More

This hotel is the perfect base from which to explore this part of Tuscany. Situated virtually midway between Pisa and Lucca (about 10 minutes to both) and very easy to find. Good directions were given on how to find the hotel from both directions, especially Pisa airport (see hotel web site) We spent a week here and enjoyed every minute... More

The smell of burning wood in cold snowing weather, the food served at hotel restaurant, and the lovely people from neighborhood & in hotel itself: all of these made that night we spent here one of our best nights in Italy. I hope to repeat it again & again. Of course, the costs are reasonable and cheaper than Rome. The... More

Perfect position for discovering Lucca, Pisa and Florence. Excellent family owned hotel. Friendly, clean and comfortable. What else do you need! Good free parking. Attached restaurant excellent. Try the ice cream parlour up the road - open until late.

We stayed one week in Tuscony, in hotel da Carlos. Overall it was a good experience. The staff are very helpful and very nice. The hotel is located between Pisa and Lucca. Not far from each city. It is a one hour drive to Florence and 40 minutes drive to the beach (viareggia: very nice coastal town). However you will... More

Inexpensive and very good value for the money. Typical non-touristy Italian hotel/restaurant off the beaten track. Spent two nights there. Rooms very clean with air conditioning that works (hurrah!) and the restaurant is pretty good and obviously popular with the locals. Portions sizes more than generous. I rather liked this place, feels like real Italy and reminded me of the... More

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
