5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. Great little spot for the budget I was on. Very clean. Very friendly staff, an particularly helpful. Breakfast an morning coffees were spot on. Great having outside area in mornings. 5 minutes walk to centre of lucca. Walls 2min away. Direct route to walls involve stairs over a railway line so be aware if mobility problems. Close to train station but only heard 2 or 3 trains the whole time I was there. Would recommend to others.

My friend and I stayed at Albergo Moderno for 3 nights in October. I booked due to reviews on Tripadvisor. Booking was easy and the email exchange and confirmation was excellent. The hotel is behind the railway station so it took a little while to find it. But, we enjoyed the location. Easy to catch the train for quick day trips to Pisa and Florence. Super fast walk over to the old city. You can't beat the location. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. They really bent over backwards to welcome us. Breakfast was great and we really appreciated the fresh fruit. One night we brought back take out pizza from a local place around the corner. It was excellent. Everyone is so friendly in Lucca. I will definitely come back and stay at Albergo Moderno.

We stayed at the moderno for one night for a visit to the lovely town of Lucca. Chose this hotel based on good reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Really good location as it is literally just a few minutes easy walking to the walled town. Very clean and smart hotel, and a good breakfast choice. All the staff we met were extremely helpful and nice to deal with. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel.
Even though the train station is close we were not disturbed by the sound of any passing trains, in fact I don't think we heard one at all.

My favorite hotel in Italy, located 2 minutes walk from the railway station. Perfect for day trips to Pisa and the beach in Viareggio. Right next to the hotel is a train bridge, the city walls and the Summer Festival site are just 5 minutes away. (trust me, you really don't want to attend any other music festival on some muddy field and your car parked 1 hour away - after staying here). And for the paranoid ones, no, you can't hear the nearby trains. There's also a parking in front of the hotel in case you have your own wheels.
Cosy rooms, newly decorated. You enjoy breakfast on a little terrace. Like most small hotels, mostly pre-packed food, but who cares, the cafe latte's are just excellent.
What I really liked about the hotel is the heartwarming and extremely friendly service. "How was your day?", "did that medicine really work out?" and "no problem to print out your train ticket"/ Even the cleaning ladies are all friendly and smily. True hero of the lobby is Luca ("And I am from Lucca!"), always happy to have a little chat or to make you a cafe. Ciao Luca, thanks for everything.
Great place, great service and guess what, even greater value.

This is a lovely little hotel, great location for exploring Lucca, about 5 minutes walk away from the city wall. The owner was charming, very friendly and helpful. We wanted to stay two nights, but due to bookings this involved moving to another room, the staff moved all our stuff for us. Both rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Good showers in the en suites. Plenty of choice for breakfast, which is served in a lovely, bright and airy room, there is also a little outdoor terrace . Very good value for money, would highly recommend this hotel.

Just arrived home from a wonderfull weekend in and around Lucca. This small hotel is on a nice location in two minutes you are entering the center of Lucca. The station is around the corner. you can park in the front of the hotel or close by. the the people are really kind and helpfull. The room was lovely and clean. In our opinion this hotel deserves an extra star.

We enjoyed our one night stay in a newly decorated room on the second floor. The hotel is in a great location, just over the train bridge from the city wall.
The staff were very attentive & helpful. Breakfast was lovely and it was a joy to sit in the little terrace to enjoy fruit, yoghurts, cereals, meats & pastries.
It's become our new favourite hotel in Lucca (after trying many) and we will be staying again soon.

Moderno Hotel in Lucca looks on to a little square used as public car park, in a quiet residential zone near the train station and just few steps from the Renaissance-era city walls which enclose the promenade of the Old Town. The Hotel il placed in a pretty and antique three floors-building totally refurbished with care and in good taste, with a small open terrace where we serve our rich breakfast during summer. Moderno was one of the first hotel in Lucca to be opened, but our management, totally a family-run business, is so recent and our hospitality is genuine, vital and so modern. ... more   less
