“Business trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Hotels was fine for a night. Probably would have been ok if stayed longer. On arrival check in ok, the hotel manager even took me to a meeting I had. The hotel is, I think about 3 miles from the centre. For one person I got a room big enough for 3 people and a little sofa. Clean and tidy. Check in was 4pm which could be a pain for some. Towels a bit hard but what do u expect for 42 euros a night. Breakfast from 8.30. Perfect for me but maybe not for some. Enough English is spoken. Hotel guy was friendly at breakfast. All in all fine for the money.

The hotel Il Ponte in S. Pietro is located very near to Lucca. You can park in front of the hotel in a quite street. It's free of charge.
We stayed in a triple-bed room which is air conditioned. It is big and has a sofa and a nice bathroom. The breakfast was good: The hotelier made good and fresh coffee/cappuccino and served fresh croissants (tasted like it was from a bakery).
It is easy and quick to get to the centre of Lucca (just take the car. in 5 minutes you are at the centre. The best is to park in a side street, then it is cheap/free of charge) and to Pisa (it's a 20 minutes ride. we parked next to an university building and payed 60 cents per hour).
We loved the hotel since it was simple and nice. The hotelier was very friendly and answered all of our questions.

Not plush or luxurious, but good value for the money. Staff were helpful as well as the receptionist giving us a useful tips of where to visit as well as recommending a very good restaurant which was very popular with the locals as well as being packed on a Wednesday night. Also advised us on a free parking spot almost next to the city walls to avoid parking charges.

Lovely place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful and some English is spoken. Although positioned away from medieval Lucca, a reliable bus service goes there, with the stop very close to the hotel. Lucca can also be reached by a lovely walk along the river which starts very near to the hotel. Rooms very clean, shared bathroom but only shared it with one other room. Rooms facing main road can be noisy, buth other than that a brill place to stay.

  • Liked — Friendliness of staff
  • Disliked — Noise from the main road
