Excellent hotel in terms of everything that matters ... location (inside the walls, but still easily to locate with a car so you don't have to negotiate the narrow streets), staff friendliness, room size/quality/cleanliness. We booked only a standard room yet were still extremely impressed by all facets of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

Located at the intersection of a lively pedestrian street and Luca's pedestrian city walls, the rooms overlooking the street on the same side as hotel entrance have no view (except the building across from the hotel) regardless how high the floor. The bed was excellent quality, the room beautifully designed and perfectly cleaned. The hotel staff was consistently wonderful -... More

Technically speaking, there is nothing wrong with this hotel. It's all a matter of preference. The room is clean, the bathroom is fine and the service was great. The location is also perfect, just inside the wall of Lucca. I just do not like super ornate decor. I do not like burgundy or green bedspreads and curtains because I often... More

This hotel is just 7 years old.   But the building served as a hospital (resting place) for pilgrims on their way to Rome in the 16,17 and 18th centuries.   It is just inside  one of the entrances to the walled city and walking distance from the main square.   Actually, everything within the walls is walking distance from...

This hotel is so conveniently placed within walking distance of the centre of Lucca. We stopped off on three different occasions to have a cup of coffee and were served by the most cheerful and helpful member of staff, Joy. Her standard of service was excellent and was within keeping with the 'four stars S' that the hotel enjoys. The... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in order to explore Lucca; it was the perfect choice as its location is excellent (right on the pedestrianised Roman road a few steps from the centre) and it is one of the most friendly hotels we have encountered in Italy. It is characterful and accommodating. The manager is omnipresent, speaking... More

Huge room with great shutters and windows to block any noise or light. Very clean and nicely decorated. Staff ok but not overly helpful and were at times difficult to find. Good for parking car and easy to get to. Well located to bus station and acces to walls. Free bikes useful for exploring Lucca. Breakfast ok not outstanding.

My wife and I were touring Florence, Tuscany and Umbria for two weeks and spent one night at the San Luca Place Hotel. The hotel is a wonderful hotel located within the walls of this interesting medieval city. The room was clean, tastefully decorated, quite and comfortable. We would recommend the hotel for its location, outstanding service, sidewalk bar/café, delicious... More

This is an ideal hotel to stay at in Lucca, especially if you have a car. Cars are not welcome inside this walled ancient town, but although the hotel itself is just inside the wall the entrance to their adjacent car park is outside the wall. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable bedrooms with character. Good selection of food... More

We enjoyed our four-night stay at this ideally located hotel. The hotel is close to all the sights. The hotel is comfortable, elegant and clean. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Our only gripes: the bread rolls at breakfast were 100% fresh on only one occasion. Also, it was disappointing to have mostly... More
