Stayed in this property just for one night and believe me it was more than enough. The room was tiny but clean. Bathroom was ok. The location was not so great but we had a car so it didn't matter much. The reason for the poor rating is the decor inside the room. I understand this place is a heritage... More

I use tripadvisor for all of my hotel bookings and as you can see from my previous reviews, I'm usually a very happy traveller. After seeing all the excellent reviews, I expected this hotel would be good but I was dissapointed. Whilst on a 3 week tour of Italy, this was the most expensive hotel that my boyfriend and I...

What a wonderful villa, a short trip from our arrival point at Pisa airport and even closer to delightful Lucca. We spent 3 nights here in early August. Although close to a main road the drive is long and the hotel feels secluded and very private, being surrounded by wooded gardens with roses and bamboo! The hotel has real style,... More

From reading previous reviews we booked this expecting something really grand with amazing views, but it seems as though the reviewers of this hotel have no idea what great views are! The hotel has a fairly grand reception room but the rooms are not what you would expect of a 4 star hotel. There was thick limescale on the taps... More

I was wondering whether to write yet another review of Villa La Principessa but I really do think they deserve it. Each time we've stayed there (4 times now - twice this year) we've been in different rooms and each time they have been wonderful. The staff and service in general remain delightful, the food likewise, the accommodation airy and... More

After spending a few days in Rome, we were looking forward to a quite restful week in Tuscany. Arriving at the hotel by car, we were immediately taken by the beautiful surroundings. It is a old style villa sitting at the foot of a hill, surrounded by forest of trees and bamboo bushes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.... More

We have just spent a perfect week in this beautiful villa a short drive from Lucca. The period features of the elegant palazzo have been preserved and the surrounding gardens are lush, green and shady. We were able to eat outside on several occasions (the weather was quite stormy for much of the time).Delightful bedrooms and bathrooms and the social... More

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
