The staff here was very friendly and greeted us twice every time we left or arrived at the hotel, nothing to complain here. The rooms were big and clean, but smelled stale. Some room's personal bathrooms are located somewhere else in the hall (not directly accessible from the room). The bathroom had a bad smell to it, of old pipes,... More

We appreciated the great value of this hotel, the friendliness of the staff and its location - only a 10 minute walk to the old town centre within the walls of Lucca. However the hotel is old-fashioned and in need of renovation. The room and bathroom are small and rather spartan and the the air-conditioning could not be regulated. Breakfast... More

The hotel has a good location around 20 min from the railway station and 10 from the center of the city. Staff were very polite, helpful and discrete. The room was very clean, but had a weird smell...clearly a religious hotel as i was having the bible next to my bed. Also the sound proofing was poor but did not... More

If you want modern ,clinical, minimalist, hi-tech, find somewhere else! This hotel is complete retro Kitsch but with its own unique charm. Its like walking into a wonderful 1950'/60's film set. The two gentleman who run this hotel were totally charming, welcoming and helpful. This was a little gem of a hotel which not everyone will get. A unique quirky... More

This is a very dated hotel with poor sound proofing, noise from doors closing disturbed us in the night.. Bathrooms are very basic, shower was miserable and breakfast at 5 Euros was the worst we had in a 6 hotel trip. If you use the hotel visit the patisserie just down the road and have coffee etc there, far cheaper... More

The reviews all seem to be right: this is a simple, average Italian hotel. From the moment you step into the building, you are transported to another century (and, per the comments of my friend who traveled with me, to your "grandmothers spare bedroom"). The decor is dated, kitsch, almost nostalgic, and about what one could expect from a budget... More

Really friendly owners, very welcoming. Basic room but with everything you need. 5 mins walk into the walled part of the city so well situated. Supermarket close by so good if you are on a budget, we had a picnic lunches sat on the walls.

The Hotel Stipino was the least favorite hotel of our trip. The room had an off odor, and ashtrays were present on the bed stands (we always request non smokers). The room was small, the shower consisted of a depression in the floor with a drain between folding shower partitions. The first night, a group of drunks sitting outside our... More

Make sure u ask for a non smoking room. We had to suffer in a room that reeked of years of tobacco smoke. Staff were nice but were unable to move us. Location is ok, a short walk to the city wall.
