San Luca Palace Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This hotel was recommended to us by our travel agent at AMEX, we were extremely happy with the stay. The hotel staff is awesome, always available to help and go above and beyond. The rooms are extremely large for Italy and even US standards, also very clean. It is located in the city walls, a short walk to everything you want to explore around the city.
The only suggestion I have for the hotel is to find a new approach to internet access, you are given a code to use which is common. However, every time you close the device (phone and laptop) you have to log back in again. It requires you to hang onto this small piece of paper during your stay- and a different one is required for each device. Again, doesn't impact the overall experience but its a bit clunky compared to all other hotel experiences.

Rooms are quite large and comfortable. It is really a good relaxation after having an extreme prices in Venice with small rooms. The facility is managed very well and clean. Breakfast was good. We stayed in late April, out of season that we booked on the way to Lucca from Pisa. In the city walls and easy walk to see around the old town. It has parking next door which is also helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed at a room facing to the main pedestrian street. The bathroom was large as the room. I dont...

In my work I travel a lot and I have stayed in hundreds of hotels - and the San Luca Palace easily ranks among the best.

Located within the city walls but close to the bus station, it could hardly be easier to get to or better situated for access to the centre of town.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful (with very good English), the breakfast fantastic, and our room was very comfortable and quiet.

For a relaxing visit to the charming city of Lucca we couldn't have found a better place to stay than the San Luca Palace Hotel.

The staff, the location & the breakfast were all top notch. The hotel is located just inside the west gate to the old city and has parking. We got a huge room with 3 beds. Very clean. The breakfast was included and great quality. The staff was helpful in every way. Even helped us book out next Trip Advisor hotel in Como.

We were traveling with our 4,6 and 8 year old. Great accommodations for all of us in one room. Staff was wonderful. Restaurant recommendations were great too. Great location next to the ancient wall and near all the shopping and restaurants.

I too cannot praise this hotel highly enough. It's ideally located on the western edge of the walled inner city with easy access to the must-do walk around the walls and the other delights which Lucca has to offer. The rooms are large and comfortable, the bathrooms modern and well appointed, the staff unfailingly helpful. The hotel is excellent value - the whole of Lucca is, really - and there's a cosy bar to enjoy a drink or two in the evening. The hotel does not have a restaturant which is no hardship as you are spoiled for choice outside.

One review has described the breakfast as "nothing special". If you keep in mind that Italians do not really do cooked breakfasts in the English or American way, you will be more than pleased with the scope and quality. It's Italian, not "International" and all the better for it.

All in all, an ideal base for our stay in Lucca and to explore Tuscany beyond. When we go back, it will be my automatic choice.

The location is great. It's a very short walk to the wall that surrounds the historical part of city, which to me is the most charming part of Lucca. Also a short walk to anywhere else in the historical center.

The rooms are nicely decorated and contain some nice touches. Bathroom is a nice size and good showers. Wifi worked well in the room.

Breakfast was typical, nothing amazing.
