3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Poor value for money. Not really convenient to Lucca as enormous road junctions and they are really difficult to navigate. Restaurant overpriced for fairly standard fare. Rooms can be noisy. Service so so.

We stayed at the hotel for a week. You do need to understand that this is not in Lucca and Lucca is not a walk away. We recognised this and rented a car. Rather it is a large country house located in extensive gardens. It is a well restored palazzo and decorated as such. Some of the furnishings may be... More

Location is very quit. There is nothing around the hotel to walk to. Staff told us there aren't any taxis. Rooms are sparse and can definitely use an update. Breakfast was standard. Pool area is a nice size.

As a previous reviewer said, you either love this hotel or hate it. Traveling with a group of friends we had our own "love" group and "hate" group. The younger ones loved it for it's quirky decor dating back to before they were born - read, hotel has not been updated for at least a decade or more. The hate... More

Beautiful old hotel with modern facilities. Large comfortable room, excellent breakfast served on the terrace. Good sized swimming pool was a welcome break in the heat. Dinner in the restaurant was good but a large tour party was noisy and kept the staff busy so we didn't linger. Reception staff very helpful with directions etc. Only grumble, no free wi... More

Outside the walls of Lucca placed in a quiet location, this hotel has been an historic villa. The time is passed a little but it conserves all of its Charme. With gardens and a nice view on the surrounding the hotel is very quiet. Breakfast is good, with an acceptable choice and high quality food standard. Room was a little... More

This hotel is a love it or hate it hotel. It is an historic villa just outside the walls of Lucca. Easy to drive to surrounding areas. It does not offer transport into Lucca, so you need to be aware that a 20 euro taxi fare to and from is in your budget. The villa was turned into a hotel... More

We are returning guest. It is an enchanted beautiful place. This villa/hotel is a real classy retreat. It is far from the noisy beach crowd of the Versilia beaches but close enough, 19 km plus, to hop in your car and get there in a short time. Couple of minutes from Lucca. The building is situated in a huge garden,... More

Hotel is located about five kilometers from city center. It is middle of nice garden and there is average size pool. Wi-fi doesn't work at all. Hotel building is from 12 th century and very beatiful. Rooms are bigger than usually in hotels. Breakfast average.
