We loved our stay in Lucca and used this hotel as a base for 10 days to visit San Gimignano, Siena, Florence, Pisa and Perugia. It was good value for money; very clean; the bed was very comfy; was good to have a fridge in the room; and the bathroom was huge with fantastic shower pressure. We were lucky our room was on the first floor so we did not have to walk up the narrow staircase every time, as there was no lift. The location was only a 10 min walk to the city and bus stop for Florence and Pisa, with a lovely pastry shop next door. The staff were very friendly and helpful when they were there, and the free wifi was great, even though at times it was hit and miss.
However, the down side was the very poor noise insulation which meant we heard EVERYTHING, from the amorous couple upstairs to the bodily functions in the bathroom of our next door neighbours, which after a while became very annoying! The kitchen had only two very slow electric elements with oversized pots, which made making a quick and easy dinner for us nigh on impossible. However, that said, the owner indicated they would remedy the kitchen situation, so hopefully this problem will soon be resolved.
We would still recommend anyone going to Lucca to stay here as it was, apart from the noisy neighbours on some nights, a very nice clean, friendly place to stay and very good value for money. Hope one day to return if we ever go to Lucca again.
