We chose this hotel for our one night stay in Lucca as we would be leaving by train the next day, so the location was excellent. The reception staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The room was perhaps a little old-fashioned, but clean and comfortable. The room had tea and coffee making facilities - particularly welcome as, in my... More

I stayed here as a solo traveler in March 2014 for 2 nights. It is a well located hotel next to the train station and across the street from the city walls The room was clean and of a standard size for European hotel rooms. Breakfast was very nice a good array of breads and meat and as many cappuccinos... More

Travelling to Lucca by train we opted for a hotel near to the station. Hotel Rex couldn't have been better located. It is literally steps from the station exit yet within two minutes you are also within the city walls. Every single member of staff was welcoming and friendly but not over the top at all. Breakfast was good, plenty... More

We spent two nights at Hotel Rex in Lucca at the end of a two week trip to Italy. This place is fantastic. The 98 year old owner greets you warmly everyday! His daughter and granddaughter (Valentina) are so welcoming and helpful. The man on duty each evening is so friendly and full of great ideas for places to eat.... More

Great location, great staff We took a side trip to Lucca from Pisa for a weekend. We really did not want to walk from the train station any further than we had to. The hotel Rex where we stayed one night was a great match to our needs - close to the train station, reasonable priced, free Wi-Fi and breakfast,... More

Great location next to the train station and just a short walk to an entrance into Lucca. Which is another great place! We chose a room over the square and were happy to put up with the traffic noise for the view. The receptionists were over the top. The younger person spoke great English but both women were so friendly... More

You know, having the right hotel can make your vacation a dream or not. We took a side trip to Lucca from Rome. We really did not want to walk from the train station any further than we had to.

We have stayed at the Hotel Rex three times. It is cool with air conditioning in the summer and warm in winter. The staff are very friendly and the 98 year old proprietor is absolutely charming. Spotlessly clean, quiet and located just outside the station. Lucca itself is a two minute walk away. Why lug your heavy cases from the... More

Stayed at the Rex in September of last year & would love to go back some day. The hotel is spotless, the rooms are spacious, and the staff could not be nicer. Both Daniella & Piero helped make arrangements for our stay in nearby Barga & stored our luggage while we made some side trips, Piero recommended a family trattoria... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Rex. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful. They lent us bikes to ride around the city. The hotel is across the street from the train station so if you're traveling by train it's extremely convenient. I would definitely recommend it.
