Very grand looking hotel from outside - looks like it has been a large private home in the past but apparently that was really quite some time ago and it has been used as a hotel for many many years. Our room was very nice - it did have loud fabric wallpaper which matched the curtains and the bedcover- perhaps... More

we stayed at La Principessa for 3 nights during the Lucca Comics and Fair and well, we loved it. The room was large and lovely, the staff was really friendly and helpful, the surroundings are quiet : a perfect location after a long day taking pictures. We would definitely recommend this classy hotel !

We found this place to be disappointing. The hotel exterior and grounds are beautiful. However, the property is located in a commercial/industrial area on the other side of the A11 autostrada from Lucca, an 8-10 minute drive from the city walls, depending on lights and traffic. The interior is decorated in a very haphazard way, with mismatched colors, and jarring... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Principessa in mid sept. Overall, the villa is quite impressive and at the same time intimate. The decor is quite an interesting mix of old elegant italian charm with modern art touches. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. it has a lovely pool (tho a tad cool to go when we stayed)....

The front desk staff was excellent, spoke English very well, provided information and quickly attended to all needs. The housekeeping and all other employees were very professional and fast to assist with luggage, supplies and cleaning the room. The grounds, general areas and rooms were very clean and orderly.

We booked into this hotel for a conference in Lucca. The inconvenience of having to drive into the town is more than made up for by the beauty and comfort of the hotel. It is a converted mansion with a double height living room and entrance. Our room was over the entrance (room 126) with a huge terrace overlooking the... More

We had booked two rooms with friends in this hotel, which were over the top (in terms of decoration) but large and comfortable (yet the beds were not very large).
