First, the gentlemen who run this hotel are amazing- Mario, Gabriel, and Alexander. So kind, they go out of their way to add personal touches. Then, amazing architecture ( you can touch a section of a wall that was built circa 200AD). Coffee in bed, cool breeze and sounds of the morning through the window. Lucca is so very walkable,...

My wife and I spent two nights here on our honeymoon earlier this month. This is a very cute hotel operated by a caring staff in a great location in central Lucca. We really enjoyed our time here & were sorry to leave after just 2 nights. A couple of comments: - We rented a car & drove to Lucca.... More

Perfect Welcome from the boss, who seemed always to be on reception. If it wasn't him it was his son. Nothing was too much trouble. Perfect breakfast with delicious bacon and scrambled eggs. Although breakfast room/reception lounge a bit small, and if everyone came down at the same time a little queue formed. Rococo furnishings, spotless and comfortable. Lucky to... More

Stayed for 2 nights in august. The room was small and dark and did have a strange smell, bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was tired but ok, shower worked well. Noise from the connecting bedroom. Breakfast was the best we had had during our travels in Italy. I was disappointed as the photos give a much better impression of the... More

Lovely experience throughout. From check in and help with parking, superb rooms (though aircon loud) and fabulous breakfast. All room names based on Puccini opera's, so we kept forgetting our room name. We had a great 2 days in beautiful Lucca as well, and would recommend renting bikes, and riding the city wall.

Lovely family run hotel in the middle of Lucca, great service, clean, well equipped rooms, good breakfast and great staff who helped us out with several requests. Lucca is a beautiful city and the Palazzo hotel was the perfect place to stay, would definitely return.

This gem is within the walls of Lucca and close to all the major attractions. Mario and Gabriel made our stay very special. Typical in italian rococo design this is what a italian hotel should feel like when you are visiting a historical town such as Lucca. Beds were great,water pressure and shower and the service unbeatable. Hotel has private... More

This boutique hotel is inside the walls of Lucca and proximate to everything. It is very charming, made more so by the exemplary service of the proprietor Mario. He was more than willing to assist with everything from dinner reservations to car rentals to train schedules. Two couples stayed in two junior suites on the top floor ( Tosca and... More

This is a lovely hotel and we were very lucky to be upgraded to a junior suite, I think the owner was sorry for us as we arrived quite wet and bedragled due to terrible weather! Lovely room with angels on the ceiling, furniture a little worn but room full of character. Like the previous guest we didn't like the... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here during April this year and had a Junior Suite on the top floor. We wanted a hotel within the town walls so that we would be able to really experience what Lucca was like. The hotel is quite small although we knew this would be the case before we arrived. Taxi from... More
