In an old palace, rooms furnished in style with ancient atmosphere, yet comfortable (fine bed and pillows, bathroom spacious enough), extreme care in particulars (silverware in the room..). Family managed, excellent hospitality and kindness. Very good breakfast and also possibility of parking your car (at an extra cost yet). Price was very affordable (off season anyway) and really worth it.... More

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Palazzo Alexander. The staff are incredible gracious, the hotel may have the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, and the breakfast is tremendous (the owner will cook you an American breakfast if you would like). It is also conveniently located in a wonderful city. A true gem of European... More

Ideally situated for all Lucca centro storico attractions. Rooms clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast (including baked apples, pancakes and cakes made freshly overnight at the hotel) more than enough to fuel hours of wandering around this charming city centre. All the reception staff spoke excellent English and were friendly and helpful, with a wealth of interesting background information. Restaurant La... More

Just inside the fortification walls, this family run hotel is just marvellous! Close to everything yet just on the quiet side, ask dor a third or rooftop room to get beatiful views. In walking distance you have everything! Top quality are also the beds!

A family run authentic styled hotel where the customer is put at the centre of what is going on. Nothing is too much trouble you only have to ask. A varied buffer breakfast is served in a warm environment. The location is easily accessible, only minuites away from the historic monuments and walled ramparts. Would we come back, yes without...

This small hotel is located near the wall and is well-located for sightseeing. My room was La Boheme on the top floor - a very comfy room with desk and 2 large upholstered chairs. Bathroom had a very large tub. Breakfast was similar to other Italian inns. Service at the front desk was extremely helpful and cordial. I wouldn't hesitate... More

We had heard some negative comments regarding taking a car inside the wall at Lucca regarding parking, narrow alleyways when checking in to a Hotel. When we arrived at Palazzo Alexander while front entrance is in a narrow street, the Hotel reception bias out the front straight away unloaded the boot and had whisked the car away to Hotel car...

Palazzo Alexander is run by Mario and his family who are extremely helpful and easy to deal with. The hotel room was lovely but unfortunately the hot water pressure in our room was terrible and almost impossible to use. All in all a charming Hotel and in a beautiful town.
