We spent two nights at Hotel Rex in Lucca at the end of a two week trip to Italy. This place is fantastic. The 98 year old owner greets you warmly everyday! His daughter and granddaughter (Valentina) are so welcoming and helpful. The man on duty each evening is so friendly and full of great ideas for places to eat.... More

Great location, great staff We took a side trip to Lucca from Pisa for a weekend. We really did not want to walk from the train station any further than we had to. The hotel Rex where we stayed one night was a great match to our needs - close to the train station, reasonable priced, free Wi-Fi and breakfast,... More

Great location next to the train station and just a short walk to an entrance into Lucca. Which is another great place! We chose a room over the square and were happy to put up with the traffic noise for the view. The receptionists were over the top. The younger person spoke great English but both women were so friendly... More

You know, having the right hotel can make your vacation a dream or not. We took a side trip to Lucca from Rome. We really did not want to walk from the train station any further than we had to. I went online to TripAdvisor to get reviews regarding Hotel Rex because it appeared that it was just what we... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Rex three times. It is cool with air conditioning in the summer and warm in winter. The staff are very friendly and the 98 year old proprietor is absolutely charming. Spotlessly clean, quiet and located just outside the station. Lucca itself is a two minute walk away. Why lug your heavy cases from the... More

Stayed at the Rex in September of last year & would love to go back some day. The hotel is spotless, the rooms are spacious, and the staff could not be nicer. Both Daniella & Piero helped make arrangements for our stay in nearby Barga & stored our luggage while we made some side trips, Piero recommended a family trattoria... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Rex. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful. They lent us bikes to ride around the city. The hotel is across the street from the train station so if you're traveling by train it's extremely convenient. I would definitely recommend it.

My family and I are from San Francisco and we visited Lucca over the summer. We have a nice size double room, and a good breakfast everyday. The hotel is located right outside the walls which I think actually added to the charm of entering and exiting the walled city (especially when the walls are beautifully lit up at night).... More

We stayed at the Hotel Rex in early October. We knew the hotel was near the train station but were pleasantly surprised by how close. The location is great if you are traveling by train as we saw many people carrying their luggage into the walled city to hotels located there. The location is great even if you have a... More

My wife and I have just returned from a memorable stay in Lucca. Based on other reviews here we booked the Hotel Rex for our week long stay and we were not disappointed. We decided to travel by rail this time and the proximity of the hotel to the central railway station was a real bonus. We arrrived at the... More
