I have just got back from a business trip to Lucca, where i stayed in the Albergo Celide for three nights.
The hotel is not obvious from the street upon arrival as the entrance is recessed back from the street, but apart from this, its a great hotel for a business visit or holiday to this beautiful area of Italy.
I was in room 77 which is near the top of the hotel and the room was very smart and functional for the visitors needs, whilst there was an elevator, it only stopped at floor 1 as there was renovation work going on with floor 2. This meant using the stairs to get to my room at the top floor of the hotel.
The bed was comfortable and the wardrobe had plenty of room to hang clothes - there is a safe in the wardrobe also to keep your valuables. the room had a nice sized flat screen TV and a mini-bar was provided for night snacks. The bathroom was a big marble and chrome room which was superb with its own skylight to let in the sunlight in the morning.
The breakfast room is smart but serves Italian style breakfast which may not suit some UK (english breakfast only) tastes - I liked it!
The bar area was very smart and prices were reasonable for Italian norms.
WIFI was provided for guests and the signal was good - even on the top floor.
Staff service was charming and efficient - a big plus point for the hotel!
All in all this hotel comes highly recommended!
