“Perfect location in wonderful Lucca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Perfect location overlooking the square where Puccini's statue sits. Reception staff helpful and charming. Can wander out of front door straight into the streets of this delightful town. No aircon which could be of concern during hot ... room basic but comfortable. We loved our stay and will be returning in 2015.

We used the Puccini as a rendezvous for our group of eleven starting the Via Francegina walk to Siena. The location of the hotel, up a quiet side-street, was ideal as a base to explore Lucca, though we wish wish we cold have spent more time there, Staff could not have been more friendly in helping out and waiting for some of our party whose flights were late. There is a annexe building where we stayed which is equally comfortable and secure.

There's never been an equal to the location of this property and the incredible attention given to guests' every need by Paolo and Franco cannot be beat. The rooms were, however, looking a little dated and the carpets were showing their age. NOW...WOW! The new floors are just beautiful and the rooms have a sleek - yet welcoming - Italian-designer look. Hope to be a guest there for another eighteen years and offering further favorable commentary on this experience (more than just a hotel "stay") in the very center of beautiful Lucca. (Breakfast a real delight, too: you meet the most interesting people from all over the world. It's like joining friends, old and new, in a wonderfully hospitable atmosphere.)

We stayed here for 2 nights in June as the weather was hotting up. Air-conditioning would have been welcome but the ceiling fan did help to a degree.We kept the shutters closed all the time to keep the temperature down.
Our room was very clean and comfortable but rather bare and bland, if such things concern you. The bed was good and the bathroom worked well and was clean - all you really need. We could have used a minibar to keep drinks cold. Breakfast was a very small affair - both in terms of the space available and the quantity of food!
The staff were very helpful and welcoming but the biggest plus for the hotel is its location - very central to everything you might want to see/visit (Lucca is not very big) and with plenty of cafes and restaurants very nearby.
If I were staying longer in Lucca, I might want to seek out a hotel with more character but for a couple of nights and little time spent indoors, it was a very useful base.

This hotel is in a great location, very close to the centre, but it lacks soul. The plastic tubes full of fake flowers that line the hallway are tacky. The whole room smelt like a dentist and I'm not sure why. The bathroom was very small and the shower was dark and dingy. Out of all the hotels we stayed at in Italy (there have been many and of the same star rating) this was our least preferred.

We visited this small hotel in Lucca and were quite pleased. The front desk staff was friendly and VERY helpful. We had a harrowing drive to the hotel as it is well within the walled city on a very narrow street. Our car was a bit large and it was a tricky ride to navigate the streets. The front desk person showed us an easy way out and saved us a bundle on parking by suggesting a car park for half price of the lots right near the walls.

The room was renovated recently and comfortable. Breakfast was typical Italian with rolls, jams, and very good coffee. The only surprise was that breakfast was not included in the room price. At check out, we discovered that we had to pay an additional 7 euros per person for each breakfast. Had we known that we would have had coffee at an outdoor cafe and picked up some tasty delights at one of the great nearby bakeries.

Overall, a very nice experience in a great location.

I have been to the Piccolo Puccini several times. Now they are just about to finish renovations of the rooms. Modern interior, good mattresses, a desk with lost of plugs (which is a sign that they think about the IT necessities nowadays), good housekeeping - all at reasonable prices.
Breakfast is typically (sweet) italian, nothing for me, but you get a freshly made coffee, bread, jam, something sweet. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is right in the middle of the city next to San Michele square. 100% recommendable.
