Really enjoyed our stay here, perfectly situated outside the station and only a 5 min walk to one of the gates into the old town. The staff were extreemly welcoming and helpful and the building and rooms traditional and luxurious with a feeling of space. The breakfast was really good and the staff would happily get anything you felt was... More

We even stayed an extra night. It's right by the station which is perfect if you are travelling by train which we were. The rooms have a beautiful, traditional and rustic charm. The breakfast was delicious and there is a nice era out the front to eat breakfast in the sunshine if you like. The staff are very friendly and... More

This is a great hotel, quirky (in a good way), ideally placed with a homely feel. It is not at all pretentious and great value. All the staff here are very friendly and helpful, especially with restaurant recommendations and suggestions for evening entertainment. We had room 12 (10, 11 & 12 are all on the ground floor and are family... More

A strange heading? Well, if the hotel itself is not the destination, what you do want from it? If you can't live without a porter, swimming pool, restaurant, cooked breakfasts, luxurious bathrobes and 24 hour room service - the Hotel Rex is not for you. On the other hand, if all you want a warm, helpful welcome, free and convenient... More

Piero , the manager is a really nice helpful guy , loaded with information and eager to please . He speaks English... More

We selected this hotel due to its proximity to the railway station and just outside the city wall. Whilst we were a little dubious as to how quiet the rooms would be, we were shocked that we slept in to 10.10am and missed breakfast. We were in room 41 which overlooked a side alley so the external shutters, double glazed... More

Chose this hotel as it was not easy to find a single hotel room for our family of 4 in Lucca. The hotel is located in the same square as the railway station and is directly over the road from the wall which encircles Lucca. The hotel has some allocated parking outside, but when we arrived this was full and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in order to visit Pisa by train. The location of the hotel literally next door to the train station could not be more convenient, with the old walled town just over the road. We really liked this hotel, genuine family run hospitality with good rooms. Reception staff were mostly family and very helpful and liked... More

After a long tiring day, touring by car, we arrived in the centre of Lucca. What a relief to see the 3* Hotel Rex. After meeting the manager everything went from good to better! He left his desk to guide me into a free-parking space. Opposite the hotel, white lines mean spaces are free, blue lines mean there is a... More
