Lucca in Villa San Marco
Ranked #1 of 79 Specialty Lodging in Lucca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This little apartment hotel is a real gem.

You start feeling care before you arrive. The hosts send e-mails asking if you need assistance with transfer or anything else. Very warm reception. Exceptional friendliness.

Rooms are convenient. We were staying in an apartment with a dining room, bedroom, and separate little kitchenette. Very cosy. Lots of space. Bathroom has all the necessary amenities. Of course you can find little scratches here and there. But for Euro 50 per night... On top of that we had to extend the stay for two more night and we offered a loyal guest discount.
Parking is free.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, just 200 meters from porta San Jacopo. You get there and you are inside the mura of old beautiful Lucca.
My general opinion is that the hotel offers too much value for such a tiny price. I hope Fabio will reach marginal contribution in the high season!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Dear Mikhail,

thank you again for your wonderful words, it's nice to see that our efforts have the desired result, that is to offer to our guests a nice cosy place where they can enjoy the holidays feeling like home. As you said, the price may be little for what you get, but we prefer being "overvalued" and not "overpriced"!
Thanks again and wish you all the best!

Fabio & Alessandra

We were very impressed by the apartments in Lucca, close to the old city walls, and with safe parking. We had chosen to stay in Lucca rather than in Pisa over night as we travelled from Venice to Rome, and it was very convenient. The lady at reception was most helpful, and recommended two restaurants to eat at in the old city, unfortunately she did not mention that local custom meant that restaurants were totally closed between certain hours so after two hours of roaming the old city with an exhausted 5 year old we gave up and drove outside Lucca to find a restaurant that was open. We found an amazing fish restaurant on the road to Pisa, so it ended well but travellers should be warned that the restaurants are NOT open throughout the day, check in advance. Rooms were awesome, shower great. Would stay there again, good value.

I'm glad to see that dispite the "adventure" to find an opend restaurant (and I apologize for not having warned you about the opening hours) you had a nice staying and you anjoyed the city. Maybe you'll have another opportunity to try the local food...and another of ours apartments.

Great! If you are staying in Lucca this is a great place to stay. Super friendly staff, clean, modern, near the old town. Excellent. So bad that we stayed just one night. Because the apartment was very nice, nice kitchen, dinner table, the bathroom was great, big bedroom.

We loved staying here Fabio was a fantastic host and the studio was large.It is only a short walk to old Lucca and Fabio told us the best places to eat.
I would recommend staying here so you can discover the walled city of Lucca.It was one of our favorite places on our tour of Italy.

Quite impressive. We arrived Lucca at mid night due to a shocking railway strike - we were scheduled to leave Florence at 21:00, while the bus driver was not willing to take so many people and the bus was delayed 2 hours. Although we have a call with Lucca in Villa for the delay, actually we are afraid they would not come to pick up us from the bus stop because it's too late and they had no idea about our exact arriving time. However, it's really amazing that the householder waited us for over an hour and picked up us from the bus stop to the apartment. Although we are somehow disappointed with Italian's public transportation system, we really touched by his hospitality and warm welcome.

The room is very clean, new, well facilitated (with wifi, independent shower room kitchen and even mosquito insecticide) and fashion-decorated (it's one-of the best decorated apartment during our 20 days stays in Europe). In geography perspective, it's not far from the wall. We were greatly refreshed after a nice sleep, and the apartment clearly introduced the nice Lucca for us. In addition, he rent us bikes to tour around the town! It's really a fantastic and unforgettable experience for us!

We just stayed one day in Lucca, but we loved this peaceful town in the first minute, not only for the inner-peace we can find, the beautiful view, but for the sincere Lucca people (especially the handsome hostel who really gave us a lot of help). We believe we'll come back again, and will definitely choose Lucca in Villa San Marco in the next trip (we think we can try their kitchen the next time). We'll also recommend "Lucca in Villa San Marco" to our friends!

we loved this place from the start. We had issues with train delays which resulted in us arriving over an hour late and fabio was still waiting at the station to collect us with a smile. They were great in all aspects, very informative, helpful and great to deal with. Studio was quite large with cooking facilities. Thanks fabio!!!!!! From the kiwis.

This was a wonderful place to stay. My husband and I stayed for 4 days. The young couple who runs the place helped us with everything and were extremely generous. They gave us new bicycles with lights and locks to use at no charge. They found us a lovely cooking class that was a highlight of the trip. And they recommended us places to go. The place itself is large and is just a few minute walk from the old Lucca. We highly recommend this spot!
