Stayed for 3 nights in mid-August as a single person in a double room. Only a few minutes in a taxi from Lucca train station (would've walked if I'd not had heavy luggage!). Outside old city walls in a mainly residential neighbourhood, which was quite quiet. Check-in was very easy/smooth. Staff were generally helpful and friendly. Hotel was about a... More

The Hotel is app. 10minutes walk away from the Lucca city center in a quiet area close San Marco Cathedral. The staff in the reception was very attentive and friendly as well as also in the breakfast room. Our room was modern and spacious and especially the shower was delightful; enough water and the temperature stayed as you have it... More

We spent two nights here on a recent trip to Tuscany. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, the hotel and rooms spotless. The buffet breakfast was great. A 10-15 min walk to the walled town might not suit the elderly or those less able to walk long distances in the heat, but not a problem for us.

Dear Guest, we want to thank you for your review and kind words. You're right, our hotel is 800mt far from the city wall and even if is a nice walk it might be a problem for less able people. But we want to point out that our hotel has a bike rental service that can "support" the guest that... More

I think I was fooled by its name: San Marco. Made me think of Venice. It could be anywhere in the world and its blandness plunged me into a depression which only lifted after two hours in beautiful, lively Lucca. Don't stay in bland hotels on holiday save them for business - incidentally this one cost over €120 for one... More

Dear Sir, we regrett that you didn't appreciate your staying at our hotel. As you can read also on Tripadvisor or on our Facebook page, our foreign guest (or from Italy too) are always satisfied. Dont't you think, maybe, that it's the bad weather -in this strange summer- that had plunged you in depression instead of our bedroom? Did you... More

We stayed here for one night while on a cycle tour of Tuscany. The hotel was a great find. The reception welcome was very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Room small but a great bathroom with funky lighting. The small outdoor pool and bar terrace area was a bonus. Breakfast was buffet and very pleasant. This hotel has a... More

What a super little hotel! The most friendly staff, immaculately clean, huge beds, satisfying breakfast, a very clean private pool, cold beer on tap and chilled Prosecco and wines. A short walk to the city wall and bikes to hire which was the best fun I've had for ages! You will not regret booking this fab place and we will... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your kind review. We know that our wifi registration seems to be "boring" sometimes, but it depends on the law against pornography that we had in Italy. Now the law has changed and we're adapting our wifi system. You could discover our new internet registration next time you'll come. More
