Unfortunately, the Italian train employees staged a wildcat strile that Monday and all trains from Viareggio to Lucca were cancelled. So we caught a bus in the rain and dragged our luggage through the town. Two days later it was very convenient for our train to Siena via Florence. The room was good, clean and quiet, the breakfast was acceptable and the front desk staff were very friendly.
It was very convenient for our exploration of Lucca and access to wine bars and restaurants.
