I just returned from a lovely trip to Italy, with the last few days spent in Lucca. I had been to Lucca before for extended trips, and had rented B&Bs or an apartment. Since this trip was short I decided to try The Hotel Rex. I had passed by it dozens of times, and had read nice things about it... More

Stayed with friends in Lucca. Lovely clean and welcoming hotel. The posiion was great close to the railway station and the city walls. Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to recommend places to visit and places to eat. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

This hotel is a stone's throw from the main city wall entrance. It has a certain faded charm, probably hasn't been fully renovated for some time, but that is a positive rather than a negative. Rooms comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Parking immediately nearby wasn't a problem, although that may have just been good luck. If you need to leave... More

Just returned from a 5 day trip to Lucca with 6 friends. Stayed at the delightful Hotel Rex. It was charming, clean and the rooms comfortable and spacious. Ideally situated to explore the walled town and close to the railway station to explore further afield. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Pietro was a fountain of information and his... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in late September. The hotel is brilliantly located just outside the city walls and right by the railway station, but without any of the seediness that you often find outside stations. The staff were without exception really friendly and helpful. Our room was generous and airy if slightly old-fashioned, and there was plenty of... More

Lovely family hotel located right next to the station and across the road from the wall! We only spent a night there, had a great room, very clean. The staff were so helpful, knowledgeable and spoke good english. Loved Luca, went to the opera - hotel advised us on how to book. If you visit Luca stay in this hotel.

Ideally located just across the road from the beautiful walled town of Lucca. Free parking outside the hotel is a bonus. The towns railway station is only 100m away so also a geat location if travelling by train - the station does not cause any noise. The rooms are fairly basic but spacious and clean. The staff are excellent. Breakfast... More

Stayed here 3 nights second week of September, excellent location, bars and restaurants nearby and gate to city about 5 minutes away.
