“A perfectvwelcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

After a long trip from the west coast of the USA & a bus trip from Pisa, I arrived in Lucca as the rain started. I walked a couple of blocks in the rain & was extremely at the hotel with an apology about the weather :). Check in was quick & easy & I was able to re-group & go out to explore Lucca.
The location is perfect! As a single female I always felt safe coming back to the hotel & walking all over Lucca, in fact I fell in love with Lucca.
The room & bathroom were super clean, breakfast was just enough & they were always accommodating, I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It's not luxurious but clean, friendly & many restaurants near the hotel.

Stayed September 2012, traveled solo

If you want to stay inside the city walls in Lucca, this is a well-located hotel. I was in a small standard room and it was perfectly fine as expected - it was quite like a dorm-room. My mother was in the room next door and the ceiling fan was broken. The staff brought an electric fan for her as the hotel was full so they couldn't move her. It was unfortunate as I booked this hotel even though it didn't have air conditioning, specifically because reviewers here said the ceiling fans were sufficient for air. The staff was very helpful about parking.

We recently spent 3 nights in Lucca. The hotel was located between 2 piazzas. We were driving and it was difficult to drive to the hotel. None the less we give this hotel a top rating. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were good sized and bathrooms quite large. Breakfast does not come with the room, but they do serve at the hotel or you can go to one of the many local bars for coffee and food.

The location is excellent. The front counter service (at least during the day) includes impeccable English. (At night, not much English, but still courteous.) We had a comfortable room (alas, no a/c) overlooking a pleasant courtyard, featuring a charming outdoor restaurant. The daytime clerk (excellent English) was as helpful as he could be. Our only issue was that we should have been strongly discouraged from even trying to drive a car into the restricted zone in center city. Instead, we wasted an entire afternoon of a quite short trip trying to find the hotel, then finally parking outside the medieval walls (at a place, yes, that the clerk recommended). We loved a walk along the ramparts of the old city walls and managed with parking, despite the need to scramble for change to feed meters every 12 hours or so. The hotel: Clean, nicely appointed. The lack of a/c was a bit of a surprise, but we were there in early September, so not so much a problem. I'd recommend it. You certainly can't beat the location -- but plan to park outside the old city.

Room Tip: Try for the second floor, overlooking the statue of Puccini. Even if you're not an opera fan, yo...

Very nice hotel in the centre of Lucca, the guy helped us a lot with our car-parking and with everything. Hotel was clean, breakfast was very nice. And it wasn's as expensive as I expected, the value for money was great. I can only recommend Piccolo Hotel Puccini.

Traditional hotel, with very pleasant reception and breakfast area. The staff are helpful, professional and friendly and the rooms spotless. No aircon - but even in the hottest part of the year the ceiling fan was sufficient to make sleeping comfortable at night. The central location is just an added bonus and I spent a very enjoyable 2 weeks here in the height of summer enjoying great Italian hospitality. This is not just great value for money - it was a pleasure to stay here

Room Tip: Rooms facing Piazza Citadella receive sun during the day - not a problem if you are not spending ti...
