We arrived in our Fiat 500, driving through drifts of beautiful rustling bamboo growths, we pulled up at the entrance of this Italian Palazzo. The fountain by the entrance was bounded by 4 frothy clouds of pink hydrangeas in antique terra cotta pots. When we stepped into this grand property, we were greeted with a welcome, as warm and mellow... More

Spent 2 nights in July. Chose the hotel because of the nice pool. However we had a thunderstorm with rain and overcast the whole time. This is a friendly and nice place with good service. We just had some trouble coping with the extreme wall papers in the rooms (psychedelic flowers in hideous colours) - authentic 70'ies style I'm sure.... More

We really enjoyed this break. I want to make this clear at the start as I will be making some recommendations which although appearing negative are simply suggestions and points that guests might feel would be important to a more luxurious stay at little extra effort and cost on the part of the hotel. We had a triple room which... More

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The view from our room's window was fantastic. The pool is large, rectangular and was uncrowded. The huge lobby area rooms conveys a feeling of the building's aristocratic past. Dining on the outside terrace is a luxurious experience, with delicious food and good wines.

A quiet old romantic Palazzo in a beautiful park, 10 min. away from Lucca Center. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Pool area is relaxing. Restaurant food is very good at reasonable prices. Romantic Athmosphere, especially when sitting outside.

Quiet hotel with large, clean rooms. A a green oasis with a wonderful garden near Lucca. The pool is large and the whole setup quite relaxing. Only negative point: Staff is sometimes difficult to catch e.g. for a dring at the pool or at the bar. Overall very pleasant experience. I would book there again.

We first discovered Villa La Principessa three years ago when my wife and I were scouting wedding locations in the Lucca area, and fell in love with it immediately. From the outside it's a stunning historic villa amid glorious green gardens, and inside it's a trendy mix of vintage furniture, modern art, and tastefully clashing patterns. Although we didn't hold... More

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 !
