Hotel Rex was a great hotel for us as we were a group with two cars. Hotel Rex could accommodate the parking and we were just outside the city wall, a great location. Lucca is not a big city so this location is perfect. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast was good with options for those with special... More

We would definitely return. Located across from the train station (but no noise heard from it) and just outside one of the main entry gates to the old walled city center. Their elevator made getting bags to upper floors easy and free parking was a real plus. The manager upon arrival, Pierre, spoke excellent English and was very friendly and... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel and I'm ready to move there. The hotel staff goes above and beyond in friendliness. The spotless rooms include a welcome tray with complimentary snacks and gifts. There are tea supplies and cookies always available. Breakfast room was colorful and welcoming with excellent food. We weren't traveling with small children but this hotel... More

We stayed in the Hotel Rex for five nights from 27th May to 1st June. This is a really comfortable place to stay, as all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfasts, and our room had a lovely view of the piazza and the nearby city wall. Everywhere was very clean, and you could help yourself... More

You walk out of the train station and the hotel is the first thing you see. It is a lot easier to walk 25 yards from the station to check in and drop off your luggage then dragging through town to find your hotel in the city ! Although on street is busy,you really can't hear the noise unless the... More

Incredibly convenient location within a stone's throw of the train station. A short walk from the famous city walls. Very pleasant staff. Decent 3-star continental breakfast. Bed wasn't great. All things considered a good budget choice. Would certainly recommend, and return.

The Hotel Rex was a great place to base ourselves for a couple days in northern Tuscany. The hotel is conveniently located next to the train station and has free parking for those arriving by car. It's also a short walk to the old city, with lots of restaurants and sights. The room was large and comfortable. The free breakfast... More
