The hotel location is perfect most if you came by train. Just one block or less and here you are!
Easy to park, because the station is there. and close to a gate to go inside the old city that you can go walking.
The attention is careful, rooms are clean, spacious,bright, good internet connection. Normal Breakfast.

Great location, clean, very friendly service, very personal service, good value. Old chap is a gem and does much to welcome you. We had a rental and were also able to park right outside the hotel. Would definitely recommend for a quick visit to Lucca.

We drove in and found it easily. Their reccomendation for dinner was perfect. Breakfast was bountiful and we even borrowed the bicycles to ride the wall in the morning. Couldn't ask for a better place, except for the football celebration that went on half the night. But I'm sure that disturbed all the hotels.

I've stayed there five times, and the best parts of the Rex are its location, service, and price. It's a few meters away from the train station and right across the street from the city walls and center. The rooms are simple but clean, and the bathrooms are somewhat cramped, but the friendly staff--including the 95-year-old owner--will work with you to make sure you have a comfortable stay. Couldn't expect anything better for the price and location.

Our kids loved the playroom and abundance of toys. The hotel staff were wonderful and on arrival we found along with a cot in our room they had thoughfully put a selection of toys for the 2 year old. The rooms and facilities were good, but the staff and location all combine to make this a fantastic choice.

Great location, right outside the walls and next to the station, very quiet and lovely cool rooms, plentiful breakfast, and such wonderful service. They kindly arranged a taxi to run us around during our trip, nothing was too much trouble. Water and beer in the fridge at reasonable prices. Would recommended to anyone visiting Lucca.

The bathroom was not that clean and the hotel is somewhat dated.
