We went to Lucca for seven days and booked this delightful hotel within the city walls. Everything went well from the checkin to our departure. We had a superior double room, which is situated in the annex about 100 yards from the main hotel. At first we were a bit disappointed that we were not in the main hotel where breakfast is served but when we got to the room, we realised why it was classed as a superior room. It was very large, beautifully furnished with a nice large bathroom. We did see a room in the main hotel, which was not as large as ours but still very good. The next thing we must say is how good the staff were, everyone we met went out of their way to provide the best of service, especially Claudia and Carla on reception. Nothing was too much trouble for them, from booking dinner at the many good restaurants in Lucca to showing where places within the city were. We used two of the restaurants belonging to the hotel (albeit elsewhwere in the city), which were both very good - one was just around the corner from the hotel called Gli Orta and full of locals. The breakfast was one of the best we have experienced on our many trips within Europe and North America, it was buffet style but again the staff went out of their way to help.
If we are in Lucca again, we will certainly stay at the Hotel Ilaria again.
