I chose Hotel Rex because of its great location (next to the train station), its good rate (I paid 85 euros + tax), and that its rates included wifi, breakfast, and loaner bikes. We arrived by train and checked in. We were put in what was called an apartment, a two-level room with the bathroom and a kid-focused area (futon,... More

Hotel Rex and its staff do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. Always smiling, always helpful, always trying to make you feel at home. The hotel is a 1 minute walk from the train station, so it could not be more convenient. Normally being near a train station is not the wisest move, but it Lucca the area... More

The hotel is located just outside Lucca wall, walking distance from all main attractions. The hotel is great! The rooms are very comfortable and the service is superb! They really give you a feeling of home and looking to help all the time. There is a free parking just in front of the hotel and they offer free WiFi.

We came to town with no hotel booked. This hotel is nice and not even 100 yards from train station. It was quiet at night and we did not hear any road noise or such. It is not in the city walls, but the entrance to the walled city is right across the street from the hotel. It sure beats... More

We decided on this hotel based upon the reviews from other travellers....and they were right. Great location within 2 minutes walk to the the entrance of the old centre. The hotel is very family orientated, and attention to service excellent. From a glass of milk for our son late at night to children's toys in our room before we arrived.... More

We had two rooms for two nights and really loved our visit. The hotel is right across the street from the wall so it was perfect. I originally wanted to stay inside the wall, but I'm so glad we didn't. We had all the convenience of a great location, but none of the hassles of parking, walking with suitcases, etc.... More

Hotel Rex was perfect for us during our recent visit to Lucca. It is right near a couple of the entrances to the city walls but also next door to the station which allowed us to make a side trip to Pisa without having to worry about navigating the ZTL's & car parking. Parking is free at the Rex &... More

This is a good find, right next to the rail station. We were dropping our rental car in Lucca before heading to Liguria. The parking is free at the hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was okay. This is a family run hotel, and they do a good job. I wish that we had more time in Lucca.

Hotel Rex helped us to love life in Lucca. Close to the railway station and the ancient city walls we found this hotel to be of good value. Lucca is a pearl from the Middle Ages still reminding us of Renaissance beauty and ingenuity. No wonder Napoleon Bonaparte’s sister, Elisa, enjoyed her tenure here as Grand Duchess of Tuscany and...

The Rex is only a few minutes from the old town center. The desk staff was always very helpful and engaged us in conversation. Rooms were moderate in size and comfortable. Breakfast was fine with the usual selections found in Italy. Small gelato store right on the corner by the hotel. Restaurants nearby and in the old town. Staying in... More
