“Unique Palazzo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We stayed one night during our honeymoon in this beautiful palazzo and hoped we could spend more time here. It's a truly unique property right in the centre of Lucca. The palazzo is from the street side somewhat hard to find since it also houses a Museum and one could think the property is solely used for the museum, but a small plate on the wall also show that the Relais San Lorenzo houses in the same building)

When we arrived we got the room with the seperate sitting area and the roof terrace and both were absolutely romantic and a nice addition to the already nicely decorated room. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, bread, eggs, croissants and the most delicious cookies and pastries we ate during our trip in Italy. All areas are properly airconditioned. Wifi free all around the palazzo. We got also baby champagne bottles because we were on our honeymoon, wonderful & appreciated gesture/thought!!

Reserve a parking spot since they're limited - and high in demand in Lucca. Would definitely stay again and recommend to all Lucca visitors with a car who want to stay within the city walls.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the seperate sitting area and roof terrace - a real w i n n e r

Daniella was an outstanding host at the Relais San Lorenzo. The former palazzo where we stayed was elegant. It looked straight out of the Renaissance. The breakfast room was a charming sitting room with a fireplace - a perfect setting for relaxing and enjoying the sumptuous breakfast Daniella provides. It was a special treat to be able to order eggs the way you wanted them. The pastries and cappuccinos were wonderful. The rooms were charming. Daniella went out of her way to make us feel at home. We cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Relais San Lorenzo was a wonderful experience. Daniella made my stay wonderful - very attentive and knowledgeable, kind and generous. A wonderful hostess in this classic and classy establishment. Breakfast was just superb, and all the finer touches taken care of as if by magic. I would recommend San Lorenzo to anyone who wants calm elegance in there stay. When next in Lucca I would always return here.

A small and friendly place to relax in Lucca. We were delighted to be given the Butterfly room which included a large sitting area with 2 settees and a large outdoor terrace. The room was well equipped with kettle and mini bar. A lovely touch being able to have fresh fruit and water from the lounge and the evening cognac was delicious! We had an early flight but were given an array of food to make up for missing breakfast. Only problem was that the room was cold due to the unseasonal weather. This meant that the towels (Which were not changed daily) were always damp.

Small B&B. Beautiful rooms. Large residents' lounge. Spotlessly clean, stylish place. On an upper floor of a larger building, up about 20 steps of stairs. Great service, friendly and pleasant.
Some nice touches: Complementary mini bar with water and drinks replenished every day; Cognac left out in the lounge for guests every evening! Free WiFi in the lounge, excellent coffee at breakfast (cold buffet plus eggs to order).
Very well located inside the walls, about 20 minutes stroll from the station. Plenty of restaurants nearby.
Delighted we opted to stay here, no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. It is really excellent.
It might be a little hard to find, there is no big sign outside. We had checked it out on Google maps street-view so we knew what to look out for.
It does not operate a 24/7 reception, so watch the check-in times or ring ahead if you are going to arrive later. It's well worth the minor inconvenience, believe me!

We absolutely loved our stay at Relais San Lorenzo which is located in a historic building in the heart of Lucca. Lucca is a special town, very walkable, lots of greenery, and delicious restaurants. We had so much fun in this city.

This was by far one of the most romantic locations we stayed during our three-week trip across Italy. The room was a bit small, but perfect for napping after exploring the town or biking the walls. We enjoyed the fact that there is a complimentary computer for use as well as free wi-fi. The dining room/library was a great place to sit and read for awhile.

Each morning, guests arrived in the dining room for a wonderful breakfast. Danielle prepared the most amazing croissants and even prepared an eggs to our liking.

Don't miss this B&B, and don't miss this beautiful little town. Both quite special.

We had a most wonderful stay in Danielle's boutique hotel. It is in the heart of Lucca. The hotel is within walking distance of anything you would need. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and served in an historic dining room. Danielle is a most gracious hostess and her staff are very caring. Danielle is also a great source of information about how to access resources. Our stay at Relais San Lorenzo was truly wonderful. We would recommend this hotel to any travellers who welcome the flavour of architecture and history and a peaceful and relaxing end to busy days.

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms and we did not see all of them, but the hotel was built in the 1300's...
