This was the first hotel we spotted when we arrived in Lucca. We wanted a room for one night after sightseeing. The double room for one night was 50 euros. We were offered breakfast for 10 euros but decided to go to one of several nearby really good cafes instead. Within walking distance of the walled town which was useful as parking at the hotel saved time & money trying to find a space in the town.
Walking into the lobby felt like going back to the 1950's, with the old fashioned decor and furnishings and there was a strong smell of garlic. Our room was on the first floor at the end of a very dark corridor but was a pleasant surprise. Although it was a bit musty, opening the doors onto the tiny veranda soon aired the room out. The decor and furniture, although old, was spotless and the bathroom was pristine. The towels were very thin but there were toiletry sachets and a hairdryer. There was a small flat screen TV.
The hotel is right on the main road and traffic noise is very bad at night even in our room at the back of the building. The two gentleman that manned the front desk were very sweet & courteous. All in all good value, basic, clean hotel with an authentic old Italian feel. OK for one or two nights - with earplugs!
