It can’t get more convenient than this – step off the train, cross a parking lot, & there you are at this truly nice hotel. Our stay was delightful, starting with the fun, sassy hotel clerk who had us laughing from check-in to departure (how on earth did we leave without getting his name?). Really comfy beds, sizable & spotless... More

The hotel is in a great position just on the outskirts of the wall, about 5 min walk to the main gate and is very close to the train station. Our room was clean but very basic. The two ladies on the front desk were very friendly and helpful, unfortunately the same can't be said of the guy working behind... More

This is a great little hotel just steps from the train station and from the walled city. I appreciated the location to the train station after a transatlantic flight, instead of negotiating the rabbit warren of streets that is Lucca. Breakfast was good with typical selections. Valentina at the front desk is a delight!

Lucca is a wonderful little city and this hotel really was the icing that made our 4 day stay a memorable one. As two young couples with 2 kids, one of whom less than a year old, the hotel management was very accommodating towards our requests. Moreover, one is greeted with genuine smiles and the hotel has a kids corner... More

Very close to the old city which makes it perfect. Just like it is close to the trainstation (which causes no noice in the hotel rooms). The staff is very friendly! Also reservation of the parking spaces worked perfectly!

We were very well welcomed by the hotel owner, although we initially did not plan to stay at this hotel when we noticed how old it actually was. Their welcome however convinced us to stay one night on our way to the holiday destination. This hotel is this family's life and you notice that when they talk about it, that... More

I booked this hotel quite quickly due to the fact that we were only staying one night and it was close to the train station. It turned out to be a great little find (in the Piazza outside train station). I suppose it's 3 Star because it has basic facilities. However, they supply these basic facilities very well. Very friendly... More

This was our second visit (was going in 2015 but had to cancel due to bereavements).Hotel Rex exceeded our expectations this year (except room was not as good) .People are as lovely as before.always helpful and friendly and having stayed subsequently at a 4 star in Stresa, Lake Maggiore, I can say the breakfasts at the Rex are much better!...

We stayed at Hotel Rex for a night at the beginning of our Tuscan holiday. While it's not the most modern of hotels (but solidly 3 star) the owners more than made up for this with a wonderfully warm welcome: nothing was too much trouble - they made sure we had somewhere to park, and made a massive fuss of...
