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

We had arrived from Pisa where we had rented a car to spend one night in Lucca on the first day of our Tuscan trip. We had initially booked a quite nice B & B in the centre of Lucca bur were not aware it had no lift and we were not travelling light, so we cancelled and went back... More

Every single person that worked here went out of their way to make our stay a delight, especially Valentina, even when were cranky tired travelers upon our arrival. The hotel is conveniently located just steps from the train station as well as the Wall. The breakfasts were very nice with many pastries, fruit, yogurt, muffins, eggs. Bikes were available for...

The hotel was in a great location, a very short walk from the railway station. It had a family feel to it. The room was beautiful and comfortable. The whole hotel was beautifully decorated with nice little touches which are not seen in other hotels. They were extremely helpful. The breakfast was amazing. The best we had in Europe by... More

We found the hotel very easily, on a park square near the train station. We were in a car and they had a parking place all ready for us right outside. All the staff were lovely and we found the hotel just right for us. The complimentary 'goodies' tray in the room was a lovely touch and we especially enjoyed... More
