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...

Have just stayed here with my family, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms very clean if somewhat dated, tea making facilities in rooms. Very well situated for the old town of Lucca, just across the road. Car parking in front of the hotel, the hotel is easy to get to by car. Would stay there again.

The room and facilities were top class - 3 star! No better. It was adjacent to the station and would say it is an ideal base for exploring Tuscany. We were doing it by public transport and can only recommend Trenitallia and The various bus services. The staff were very flexible and helpful. Breakfast was a feast with a great... More

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
