This hotel is the perfect antidote to a big impersonal international hotel. Situated just outside the walls of the city and very close to the central railway station, the hotel is charmingly Italian with lovely air condioned rooms. The rooms are spacious with good en suite bathrooms. The standard of cleanliness is high. The small restaurant serves only breakfast but... More

Absolutely the best! The friendly staff gave excellent recommendations for eating, along with being superbly considerate. After finding it was my birthday, I found a present from the hotel on our bed! Totally unexpected! Terrific breakfasts; convenient parking; steps away from the train station and the walled city. This is a must stay hotel!

I stayed at Hotel Rex based on recommendations from TripAdvisor, and I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't book through expedia.com, so I made a direct connection with the hotel online. The hotel staff answered back right away with a welcoming email. They continued to go out of their way to make me feel welcome throughout my short stay, even setting out... More

It's perfect to explore Lucca (just in front of city walls and near one of the gates) and a good option to go to Pisa (less than 20 km away). Clean, quiet and spacious room, good breakfast and brilliant staff. I certainly would stay there again.

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!!
