stayed there for two nights only, well located, outside the walls...in one of the best borgos or residential areas of lucca...friendly staff, small european size room but very clean and nice bathroom, Ina from the staff went out of her way to help us out, great location if you want to be away from the bustling crowds in lucca but still close by to safely walk back and forth.... reccomend it...wifi is good but a bit cumbersome in the fact that you have to sign in and out everytime you use it!!

Dear Guest, thank you for your kind review. We know that our wifi registration seems to be "boring" sometimes, but it depends on the law against pornography that we had in Italy. Now the law has changed and we're adapting our wifi system. You could discover our new internet registration next time you'll come.

We stayed here in May for a few nights and found the room to be spotless and very comfortable. The bathroom is great too and suited our needs. Air conditioning was very efficient. Free wifi and mini bar in room too.
The hotel staff were always very friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat and things to do, and telling us more about the Bruton Brewery.
The breakfast was varied and good. There is an outside terrace too near the small outdoor pool, plus they provided pool towels and robes as well on request.
Do hire a bike and cycle around the walls, not only is it good excercise, you get a fabulous view of Lucca and the surrounding countryside. It was great to cycle through the narrow streets and plazas in the town too.
There is a short cut down the side of the hotel towards the walls and on both evenings that we returned we saw lots of fireflies flying around some bamboo bushes - just magical!
A perfect small hotel for exploring the area. I'm sure we will return to this beautiful lush area.

We made the following notes on this wonderful facility following our stay: Nice and clean, good size room and nice shower, looks brand new, staff extremely friendly and helpful, just a ten minute walk to the "wall" and the incredible town square (if you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere), good buffet breakfast, small swimming pool surrounded by pleasant patio, hotel area surrounded by impressive homes and condos, take train trip (30 minutes) to Pisa and another 15 on a bus and you are at that leaning tower, nice day trip, lots of pizzeria and restaurants in town square, to make trip complete should take at least a walk along the historic wall. Would we return: Most definitely.

This was a great hotel and a great location in Lucca. While not in the old city walls, it's within a short walk of the old town. The staff was very friendly and helped us with all our needs and answered all our questions. I'd highly recommend this hotel and definitely visit again! The Room was a good size and everything was always very clean. Breakfast was also very good.

The hotel is very nicely furnished, super clean, best breakfast we had during our 3 week trip in Italy, close to city walls. BUT, the staff (Francesca in particular) was the icing on the cake. She was full of ideas of what to do and where to eat in Lucca (she marked about 5 places on the map) plus gave us a full orientation for our car trip to Cinque Terre. Thank you again, Francesca. You really made our stay in Lucca special.

The stuff is super friendly, really something to pint out. The breakfast is rich enough. 5 min walk to the Lucca wall. The room is nicely decorated (modern). The only downside would be the smell of bleach upon arrival, which evaporated immediately after we opened the window. Which probably explains the sparkling bathroom ;)

Dear Guest, thank you for your kind review. You have stressed all our strengths: modern rooms, friendly staff, rich breakfast, proximity to old town centre. And as you said, also the beach smell is something good for us, because it means we have just cleaned the room, that has to be "sparkling" for our guests! Hope to see you again, in your next italian trip!
