“Good all round hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed here for our last night in Italy and wanted somewhere near to Pisa airport. This was perfect. We had time to explore Lucca ( worth a visit-or two) the next day before returning home. The hotel is in the countryside so no noisy traffic roaring past. The rooms are of a good size and we did have an outside balcony but no view. I believe there is a swimming pool here but we didnt use it. There is a bar/coffee area but when we stayed here they were so short staffed that it was only manned when the receptionist was free to do so. Poor girl was rushed off her feet. The restaurant was very good and extremely popular so book ahead if there is a number of you. Breakfast was good but a criticism is that the fruit juice is from a machine (never seen that before) and i think was powdered!! Again there was not enough staff so items were running out well before they were replenished. However, the room rates are reasonable and hopefully they will sort out the staffing issue. Will stay here again.

I wanted a nice hotel outside Lucca so I could park my car without being worried that it would be gone the following morning. Also I wanted a relaxing hotel with an excellent restaurant nearby.
Well the hotel offers everything i was looking for and at a modest price.
The restaurant La Cantina di Carignano offers a wide variety of local and Italian dishes and from the meals I have had all very well prepared.

What we liked best was the peace and quiet (our room was on the 2nd floor and facing the garden/pool area --- don't know what it's like facing the road). You could open the doors to the small terrace and enjoy fresh air all night long -- I wish more hotels offered this simple pleasure. The staff was very helpful, the wireless internet was free (another lesson for other hotels). Our only complaint was the breakfast ... it looked like it was the victim of some serious cost-cutting. The breakfast room was rather depressingly decorated, and the food limited in scope and quality (some sliced brown bread, a few slices of cheese and ham, hard boiled eggs, some very mediocre sweet pastries, some totally artificial fruit juices and a slightly dodgy-looking coffee machine). If they put a bit more into their breakfasts, I would happily give them full marks.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool are wonderfully quiet.

We stayed two nights and found the hotel to be very good. The rooms were large as was the bathroom and the bed was very comfortable. The balcony had a nice view of the back yard and the country side. The hotel has seen better days by the look of the furniture but was clean. The front desk staff was friendly but not overly service minded - when checked in late at night and were kept waiting at the desk while two phone calls were first answered. The attached restaurant was excellent. It is a short drive to Lucca town center so it was a quiet place to sleep. Breakfasts were plentiful - had to ask for cappuccino as the machine variety was not very good. Other than that the breakfast was fine. Would we stay there again? Perhaps.

Passed a night here en route back to France. Room was spacious and clean, but the decor is rather tired. Balcony overlooks a large closed off grass area ideal for exercising the dog (it is a dog friendly hotel, not easy to find in Italy). There is an above-ground pool which was out of order (maybe permanently), they need to build a proper pool. On arrival the chap told us it would cost 15 euro extra for the (large) dog, but in the event they forgot or didn't bother. The restaurant is excellent, busy, well used by locals, huge choice of dishes, good house wine, pleasant service. The maitre d' even let us have a bottle of white and 2 glasses for aperos in our room, before the restaurant opened, on trust to be paid for later.

Room Tip: Ground floor have patios, but below the level of the garden. First floor have balconies.

Lovely hotel located in the middle of Tuscany country. It was high standard and not that expensive. The room was clean & the staff nice. The swimming pool is located away from the hotel, via a small path behind and was really quiet!

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.
