What a wonderful hotel - a palazzo in the walled town of Lucca in Tuscany. The owner Marion and the staff are friendly, helpful and they love their hotel - it shows. Breakfast is excellent. Located in a quiet corner of the town near the Mansi Museum and a short walk from the bus station where the CAP bus from... More

Hotel Palazzo Alexander is set in an old building. the first two floors date back to 1024 per the owner. It is close to the city wall and Porto Donato is the entry. There is private parking within the walls in their own secured area. We parked outside the walls at Porto Donato and walked to the hotel. We then... More

I would recommend this hotel for it's personal attention, delightful hosts and comfortable, large rooms - and a delicious breakfast as well! We only stayed one night due to our travel schedule, but I would not hesitate to return to Lucca and stay at Palazzo Alexander as my #1 choice. Mario, the owner, has been 'in the business' for over... More

This is a very charming hotel. We have stayed at this hotel 3 times this year and it was consistingly excellent. The rooms were fantastic (one had angels painted on the ceiling). The breakfast was exquisite, including unusually crispy croissants. Parking very close to the hotel is provided. The landlord and the other staff including the nigth staff were very... More

If you are looking to stay in a glass-fronted, impersonal hotel, with identical rooms, then the Palazzo Alexander is not the hotel for you. On the other hand, if you would like to stay in an old building with character that has been beautifully restored, then look no further. As others have said, one of the key charms of this... More

We had a two night weekend stay in a double room on the third floor of Hotel Palazzo Alexander. The hotel is an easy walk from both the railway station in Lucca, and from the bus stop for the transfer service to and from Pisa airport. Our room was spacious, with enough natural daylight, and with a view onto nearby... More

We stayed for two nights at the Palazzo Alexander and from the moment we arrived we were welcomed with warmth and kindness. We stayed in the room named La Boheme and it was wonderful and romantic. From recommending restaurants to helping us with suggestions on our trip to Sienna, to remembering how we take our coffee from the previous morning... More

This was my first time in Lucca, and I found this hotel to be extremely charming with a lot of character. The staff at the hotel were extremely warm and friendly, and were able to help with anything you needed. The location is great for exploring this beautiful walled city, and I could have stayed much longer and really enjoyed... More

When I read the positive comments, I feel they must be reviewing a different hotel. This is not a 4 star hotel in my world and I fail to see how they could have that designation. We were here for 2 nights. Our room was extremely dark with threadbare upholstery on the furniture and a shower that was downright nasty... More

We weren't expecting the opulence of this 4 star hotel given the comparatively modest price (under $200). Lovely antique reproduction furniture and plush linens, a roomy marble bathroom with beautiful fixtures. The location is excellent, away from the crowds and close to the wall and parking both inside and outside the wall. Our only complaint,and a minor one was the... More
