Reviewed August 6, 2012

Nice place to stay. Very central, next to Plaza Puccini and Restaurant Tosca.Good Italian hospitality. Small, but nice rooms. clean, and fairly priced. No A/C, but fans. Just open the window, and you are part of the squirling lfe of Lucca.
Go out enjoy Lucca, dont drink and drive. and stay at this Nice Hotel.

Take care

Yours Mat N

We stayed at the PHP one night with my wife and two kids.
The room was located at the first floor with windows facing a nice street.
Our room was equipped with a double bed and a single bed, a small deck, a flat TV, a wardrobe, a safebox.and a fan ceiling.
Bathroom was small sized, with a shower and a little WC.
We did not have breakfast at the Hotel.
The lack of air conditioning doesn't allow you to close windows in summer nights and you'll probably hear some street noises.
It's basically equipped with a bit dated furnishing, but it's cheap, clean and ideally located in a lateral street from Piazza San Michele, in the middle of the old-town, within the Walls.

Mr. Moncini is a very nice host, he helped us with a last minute need for a room. The hotel is located just steps away from the beautiful Piazza S. Michele. For the location, Piccolo Hotel Puccini is priced very well. It is clean, the rooms are not large but well appointed. There is no air conditioning but ceiling fans made sleeping ok during the hot days of July. A light breakfast is available for a small charge. We also had rooms at Hotel Palazzo Alexander (see my review). If you are looking for a full service, classic beautiful Lucca hotel, stay at Palazzo Alexander. IF... you are looking for a more economical Lucca stay in a great location, Piccolo Hotel Puccini is your best choice!!

This hotel was precisely what I expected it to be: a place with excellent location and great service but with rooms perhaps in need of a bit of attention. But due to that location, much could be forgiven.

Our first-floor room 23 overlooked the front alleyway, and had a clear view of the San Michele church. During the day an endless procession of cruise ship tours would park under our window to discuss the church - until late afternoon.

The room itself was adequate. Not too small, and clean, with a decent bathroom and nice large window. It perhaps could use a general sprucing up, but then maybe next year. The outside window shutters were missing some slats - which we didn’t notice until looking at pictures from the street of my wife in the window - not too serious then.

There was no air conditioning - not a big deal due to the overhead ceiling fan. But that fan was a concern: we didn’t notice until trying to sleep that it made a fairly distinct clicking noise. By the time I could take no more the room was cool enough not to need a fan. The bed was fine, and the town quiet enough that having a open window was no trouble.

The desk personnel were all very nice. They waited up for us when we went out for a late night stroll. Breakfasts were simple affairs: croissants and cappuccino. I didn’t realize they were not included in the room until we check out and found ourselves charged about 2 euros per person. So not too expensive at all, but had we known we might have opted elsewhere the second morning.

Lucca itself was great. Sure, during the day lots of tourists. But before / after the cruise tours hit, it’s a beautiful, personable town inhabited with locals - far from a tourist trap.

I hate to give this hotel a poor review because as other reviewers have mentioned, it has a great location, the staff is friedly and professional, and the bathroom was squeaky clean. It is also true that even in July, Lucca cools off at night and not having an air conditioner is not an issue. However, because the room is not air-condioned, we had to leave the windows open. The next morning my husband awoke to a series of bites all over his body, which we believe are mosquito bites. Two weeks later he still has the bumps and reminder of our one night stay at the Piccolo Hotel Puccini.

We wanted to stay overnight on a visit to Lucca and we chose this hotel on the basis of a personal recommendation.
It is very well situated in the centre of the town which makes it ideal for sightseeing. The room was small but comfortable and the bathroom was modern and clean with a good sized shower.
No air con but a ceiling fan worked pretty well on a very hot night.
The price was reasonable and we booked online about two hours before arriving! The reception staff were helpful and spoke good English.
We had breakfast at a nearby cafe and dinner at one of the many restaurants in the area.
We parked in a public car park about 5 minutes walk away.

This is almost the perfect place to stay in at Lucca. Right in the center of the old town by Piazza San Michele the location is hard to beat. Clean rooms with high ceilings and large windows, it was cool at night even during the recent heat wave. The bathrooms are great (trust me, that's no small thing!). The staff is friendly and helpful and will give you tips on restaurants, cafes, and travel options, or will be just happy to chat. Can't go wrong with this hotel unless you want a pool or a full service hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor room if you have heavy suitcases. There is no elevator!
