“Lovely hotel in great location with friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We spent a long time looking for a quiet good value hotel and chose this one after a prolonged search. We were not dissappointed. The reception staff are very helpful and pleasent and spoke very good English. The room was perfect for we wanted and very clean and comfortable and also had a balcony.The hotel is only a five minute drive to Lucca and ten minutes to the autostrada. There is a small pool to cool off in and a river path that takes you to Lucca within a short walk. The pool could do with a net to remove the insects. There is a good restaurant attached which has good food. I would 100% stay there again and would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Our family of 4 stayed here for 4 nights as part of a Tuscany cycling trip. The staff were amazing, so helpful in dealing with our stolen bike. When we checked in, they gave us a room for three even though we were four but rectified it right away. The pool was a bit green as well, but it was cleaned the next day. The best thing was the restaurant....locals come here to eat, the food is exceptional and the price is better than anything you could find in touristynLucca (a 10 minute bike ride away along a beautiful river path).

First off, you'll need a car to get here.
I really liked this hotel because of its location. It's about a 10 minute drive from the centre of Lucca. The verdant open areas in front of the hotel give it a quiet, rustic effect. A single road passes-by it and if you live in a city like me, there will be times in the night when you'll ask yourself "Where in the world are you?"

The rooms are clean, as are the washrooms. The staff are very helpful.
Wifi is only available in the lobby, not in the rooms. The lobby is clean and was quiet when we were there but it was nice to interact with the other lodgers there.

I will definitely recommend this place.

My husband and I had a lovely three night weekend stay in this hotel. It is in a beautiful part of Tuscany just a short drive from the centre of Lucca. It is very clean and the staff are very helpful. We used this a our base to visit Pisa, Lucca, Florence and the coast. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Stayed at this hotel in June 2012 for one night. Unfortunately I had originally believed that the hotel was closer to Lucca than is actually the case. Fortunately I did have a car and the drive to Lucca was only about 10 minutes and was able to find a parking space quite easily when visiting the old town.

I would recommend using a Sat Nav to find the hotel.

The staff were extremely friendly and the price of the room was extremely good for the size (58 euros). The room was quite large and had its own balcony, however it was quite dated and the AC wasn't that great and the TV was very small. However the big thing on the plus side was that the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. I would definitely eat there again.

We stayed in March 2012. The price was awesome for such a nice hotel, only 49 euro. I've stayed in a lot of small hotels in Italy. Most cost much more and are no where near as good! this one is soo much better and worth more! In summer it is 80 euro/ night which is still really good. This hotel is great in terms of room size and decor.The bathroom was modern and clean, the bed was not a rock like most and it was One bed, not 2 pushed together. we had a beautiful balcony and the breakfast was really well done.
The hotel location is absolutely picture perfect! it is right on a regular road so its easy to get too and my GPS went right to it. Parking is right outside the door to the lobby entrance. It is so easy w/ no stepps so you can wheel your luggage right in and then right into the elevator!! The lobby is large and comfortable with big, over stuffed chairs to relax in while you drink your coffee from the bar right there.
The cooking school is great too! I took about 5 classes over a few weeks and loved it! Chef Paolo is fun and practical in his teaching. you really do the cooking and he helps you. then you sit at a beautifully set table to eat what you have prepared. Included is white and red wine, bottled water and anything else you need. Then after eating and having great conversation you order your coffee and relax while you drink it! It's a great day of food, fun and learning!
We also ate in the restaurant for dinner. Tthe food, service and ambiance were great! I spilled my coke and the waiter had us at a new table and reset instantly! He was sooo nice about it!! I flet like such a klutz!
also all the staff spoke english very well which makes it so much easier to operate. the hotel is 10 minutes from Lucca, 30 min to Pisa, 1 hour to Florence and a million other great places are with in easy driving distance.
