We stayed here for one night before moving to a vacation home outside the city.
When arriving, we drove through some narrow streets to get to the hotel's parking lot. Good, free and secure parking is important in Italy, and this hotel does well on this criteria.
There isn't really a reception, just a chair and a table under the stairs. We did get checked in without problems though. Our room, a double with extra bed, was spacious and nice. It seemed clean, and the high roof gave a real sense of living in a villa. There was no aircondition though, just a fan, which made it a bit hit at night.
Breakfast was included, and consisted of typical Italian breakfast ingredients. Nothing special, but good enough. However, the coffee came from a dispenser which seemed to break down constantly. And when it worked, it delivered poor coffee by Italian standards.
The villa is nicely located for sightseeing in Lucca. You walk two minutes to get to one of the gate, and from there distances are short to all attractions around the pretty small old town.
