“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

The location just outside the walls worked fine for us. 10 minute walk from the train station. They have bikes they'll loan you or it is just another 5 minute walk to enter the walled portion of the city. The room was very modern and nicely appointed. We were only in Lucca for a night but I think it would be fine for a few nights. The rooms are a bit small but fine, as noted, for an overnight stop.

What a great find in Lucca! Out side the walls but wall entrance only five to 15 minute walk depending how energetic you feel. Very friendly staff who have exceptional English and are very accommodating. So clean and well maintained with some great chill out areas especially the roof terrace. Very near train station which you can get to Pisa and Florence very easily and cheaply. Just make sure you validate your ticket before travel. Buffett style continental breakfast with meats cheeses, fruit and pastries. Main hotel bar expensive but bar attached to hotel a lot cheaper as more of a local bar used by the locals. Would go back and stay here again as perfect location. We had a family room as 4 girls celebrating their 40th. Rooms we what we needed with showers only but not sure if this was in all rooms. Clean towels daily and rooms cleaned to a very high standard.
Hotel does have a spa but we did not use these facilities. Not enough time as much to see and do. Great place for all travellers.

Chose this hotel for its location on the edge of the old city and good reviews. Easy to find, close to the east gate. Friendly staff and free reasonably secure parking. Looks to have been refurbished recently. Comfortable room silent at night with the window open. Room bit tight as is usual where the ensuite has been shoehorned in but plenty of quiet public space including a terrace. Good free wifi. Breakfast good, nothing hot, but this is Italy. Associated fish restaurant next door excellent and discount for guests. Good value. Stayed 2 nights.

This hotel provided excellent service and we had a spacious modern and nice room. We were welcomed by extremely friendly staff. They even personally showed us our room on second floor. The friendliness felt genuine and gave a very nice impression. Parking was provided just behind the hotel. Very convenient indeed. Breakfast did not have the warm items I like, but it was good anyway. Central part of the picturesque town of Lucca is just a short walk away. When you visit the area this is the place to stay.

We just stayed there and cannot say enough good things about our experience. The hotel is located just outside the medieval walls and not too far from the train station. You could walk there if you decided to take the train. The staff was very friendly and helpful (Luca, Sonia and Francesco). They provide free bicycles which made our trip really fun and made getting around the city so easy. We booked a family room which was two joined rooms with a private shared hall and bath. This meant our children (ages 15 and 11) could be in their room watching MTV while we had a bit of quiet. Free parking, wifi and breakfast. We will recommend this hotel to everyone. All around lovely stay and a great value.

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!
