We spent 3 nights at Palazzo Rocchi and on our arrival we were greeted by the other owner who I think was called Pauletta who told us that the home had belonged to her family and remembers running around it as a small child.
She recommended a fantastic place to eat called "Ristorante Giglio" only a 5 minute walk away, she even phoned up and booked for us.
Our 3 night stay was in one of the smaller rooms and although it is not anything like as luxurious as the suites it is still tastefully and sympathetically decorated and has a real old world charm.
It also has the use of a large Central Hall, beautifully decorated and ideal for meeting friends if there are a few of you staying.
Both these double rooms face onto the square and although it was a little noisy early in the evening it had quitened down considerably by 23:00, certainly not noisy enough to keep us awake.
The occupants of the two double rooms take their breakfast side by side in the reception near Roberto's desk. It is a little unusual being served your breakfast at the side of Roberto, busy running his business but the breakfast is more than adequate and we found the ladies who served us very helpfull and very charming. It's a little like staying with relatives.
Obviously it would have been nice to be offered the suite upgrade like many have on this site but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a unique location in Lucca and my wife and I had a wonderful stay.
It would not be possible to mark this hotel at any less than the full 5 stars but like most on here, it's one of the suite's for us next time!
Thanks Pauletta and Roberto for a fantastic stay.
