My wife and I are in our 50's and stayed at this hotel for four days in May 2014; the staff were friendly and efficient. Thanks to Peter for his assistance and cheerful disposition.
We found Hotel Rex to be clean and spacious enough, and the room had a kettle and instant coffee, plus a mini bar with wine, sodas and other delights (mini bar items for a small charge). A small bottle of prosseco sparkling wine plus chocolates, a scented candle and other items were provided as a welcome gift to us.
An ample breakfast was provided each day, including tea, coffee, juices, cold meats, fruit, cereals and muesli, hard boiled eggs, toast, pastries, stewed fruit, etc. This is an extended European + American breakfast, and should please any nationality. Remember - when traveling outside your home country you should not expect the same foods you get at home. We enjoyed the variety of foods offered and got to try some new items.
There were tea pots and biscuits in the hallways for those desiring a mid-afternoon (or other time) snack and treat.
The hotel provided bicycles for the guests free of charge. Free WI-WI is available, plus a computer in the lobby for those who need one. There is a bar in the lobby, discretely placed to the side so as not to be visible from the street. Suites are available via the use of an elevator or the stairs. A gelateria is located next to the front door and the hotel provides a coupon for two free scoops of heaven on earth!
The railway station is a short walk away, and even though we always sleep with the windows open we didn't hear the trains at all. The location is excellent and convenient. There is a Farmacia around the corner, and a tobacconist/bar at the station.
The walled city of Lucca is across the street and is easily accessible. At night the walls are lit by flood lights, creating a pretty scene.
I highly recommend this hotel to travelers. Enjoy your stay.
