Just arrived back home after 5 days at Relais San Lorenzo, Lucca.
First the location, it could not be better, right in the middle of the old town. On arrival we were shown into the drawing room and provided with a cool face cloth and a refreshing drink of iced tea, this was most welcome as the temperature was well into the high 30s. First impressions were that the hotel had been renovated and furnished to a very high standard, but still keeping the classic touches of an Italian time gone by. After registering we were shown to our rooms. We were given the Madam Butterfly which includes a separate seating area with a door leading onto a private terrace with a table and furniture; I must say that we took full advantage of sitting on the terrace with a glass of chilled wine after a day of sight-seeing. Our travelling companions were given The Turandot room which was also very fitted out to a very high standard.
The Breakfast was first class. I have to admit that the scrambled eggs were excellent and to die for. The choice of fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt’s pastries and croissants provided you with a perfect start to the day.
All the staff we came into contact with was pleasant and helpful and I must say that their English was better than my Italian. We were giving advice for places to eat, and again the recommendations were excellent. Because of an early morning flight we had to leave at 4:45am the Hotel arrange for the taxi transfer to Pisa Airport which arrived on the dot, and the staff left a breakfast tray in our room, a first class service and a very nice thought.
My only niggle and I feel that this is nit-picking but a glass for fruit juice in a morning instead of plastic cups, but other than that I can’t say a bad word about The Relais San Lorenzo.
Thanks for our stay, and look forward to our next stay at The Relais San Lorenzo, Lucca.
