“A friendly and elegant home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We stayed for a week at this wonderful small hotel in the historic center of Lucca with our 5-year-old twin daughters and truly loved every bit of it! Managers Marta and Andrea were incredibly warm and helpful at every turn. Our spotless room was decorated simply and elegantly and we especially enjoyed the beautiful light pouring in through the casement windows. Each morning our girls ran into the sweet dining room for a sprawling breakfast buffet! We were also served fab coffee and eggs per request. We are thinking of living in Lucca for a year and sending our daughters to the bi-lingual school just outside the city wall. Whenever our family and friends come to visit, there is only one hotel where we will send them: Palazzo Busdraghi!

My friend and I stayed at the hotel for 2 days and we had such a good time. The hotel is in an amazing location - within the city walls and close to all of the sights. You enter through an anonymous door from the hustle and bustle of the busy street, but once inside you are in a different place. The hotel is in a beautiful old building (no lift but help is given with bags should you need it) and has every comfort you need. Our twin bedroom was large and was spotlessly clean. Free WiFi was good. The breakfasts were superb - lots of choice and real coffee! We had a car and had booked a car parking space which is in a car park a couple of streets away - but it was easy to find and caused us no problems. As with many hotels its the staff who make the difference and the staff here were just lovely and very, very helpful. We were recommended some great restaurants and whilst in Lucca we also took in a Puccini concert. All in all a great city, and a lovely place to stay which made it all the more special.

My husband and 12 year old daughter and I stayed here for 7 nights. It was a wonderful experience! We were treated like royalty from the minute we walked in. All the staff were amazing and so helpful! Each morning we were served a complimentary breakfast that was incredible! The rooms were very clean and beautiful! The location was perfect, as we were right down town in the middle of shops and restaurants. It was a 15-20 min. easy walk to the train station and the wall.

Enjoyed this hotel, set within an old residence, ‘Residenza d’Epoca’, old world charm and character. So one enters through elaborate anonymous old brown door off a busy alley in famous old town. Room was long and spacious, window to street. Art about. Breakfast was excellent. Very good bread. Cooked eggs if needed. Good friendly service. Wifi free, and good.

The hotel is positioned right on a busy street within the hustle and bustle of the city walls but is a very quiet place to retreat to after a busy day. The hotel is entered via beautiful wooden doors off the street into a courtyard. The people who run the hotel are charming and show a real interest in what you have been doing during the day and also recommend places to eat in the evening. The breakfast is excellent with a wide range of choices. The rooms are beautifully presented with typical Tuscan decor. I would certainly recommend the hotel to others and is one that I look forward to returning to in the future.

Hotel A Palazzo Busdraghi is very well situated on the Via Fillungo, close to good restaurants and a stone's throw from the city wall. Our first night was spoiled by a party going on on the street beneath us but the next day we were relocated to a quieter room where things improved dramatically.

Our room was comfortable and well furnished with a luxurious bathroom and lovely fluffy towels. The breakfasts were varied and well presented. Hats off to the Austrian lady who baked fresh cakes for the guests when she had an evening shift! The chocolate and banana cake was delicious.... thank you.

For those who require the services of a laundromat, there is one a few steps away. Our wash and dry took about an hour.

Lucca is a wonderful place to visit and if we ever return we will certainly revisit the hotel

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing the side street as Via Fillungo (the main street) can be very noisy.

Our trip to beautiful Lucca had a cherry on top : Hotel A Palazzo Busdraghi.
Built c 1600 and used to be the city hall. Please take a moment to admire the magnificent old doors guarding the property.
The hotel was central to everything we wanted to see and do. Make sure to enjoy the bicycle trip on the Renaissance wall surrounding the town. Andrea and Martha were most helpful with advice on where to eat and what not to miss. Good breakfast and room provided everything we wished for. Will definitely return again!
