Excellent location next to the railway station and a great base for exploring Lucca, Florence and the coast. Very clean, well-equipped bedrooms. The gluten free options at breakfast were the best I've ever had in a hotel. Stayed in June 2014 and can highly recommend.

I had a pleasant stay at this charming family run property. It was easy to find from the Autostrada as all I had to do was follow signs first for centro=center city=bullseye pictogram and then signs indicating train station= train pictogram. The hotel is in the piazza directly in front of the train station. There is free parking available in... More

Very nice, clean, helpful staff. The town is known for the wall that people walk and bike on, and the hotel has FREE bikes for their guest. We had a great time. Right next to the train station. (We never heard the train).

A group of 7 of us stayed in Hotel Rex for one week last July. The location was perfect as we were using public transport. We were only yards from the train station and bus stop however the rooms were not noisy. The bedrooms were spotless and very beds comfortable. The breakfast choice was excellent The receptionist Valentina was very... More

Location, Location, Location. Normally I steer clear of staying next to train stations, but in this case, it was the perfect place to stay. We started off with a rental car, so the free parking in front of the hotel was great. We later dropped the car off, so being next to the train station was fantastic. We took the... More

Stayed here one night with our freinds. Great wellcome, though arrived at night. Makes you feel at home. Nice airconditioned rooms, great breakfast. Just outside lucca's wall, we walked all the promenade and got lovely sights of the old city. Parking is free. Very recomended!!

We enjoyed our two night stay at Hotel Rex. The staff was genuinely kind and helpful assuring their guests are comfortable. As it is located next to the railway station and across the street from the walled city the room was surprisingly quiet. The access to Lucca is excellent. The Hotel has well maintained bicycles to offer their guests --... More

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
