We stayed here on New Year's Eve because of a misunderstanding about our booking at a nearby boutique hotel. We paid €149 + tax for an adequate room at the back. €40 less would have seemed more reasonable, especially in view of the extraordinarily poor breakfast in the dirty, crowded breakfast room and the smell of cigarette smoke that permeated the building. The location alone will keep this place going, but if you can avoid it, Lucca's many charms can be appreciated better from another vantage point.
