Reasonable prices for the services received. Front desk staff are so nice and willing to do whatever to make your visit enjoyable. Speak English, so language is not a problem. Clean and comfortable rooms. Would highly recommend this lodging in a lovely city. Conveniently located next to the train station, making travel easy.

Breakfast was amazing, well stocked buffet with quality food. Everyone was so nice. We were even locked in our hallway at night from the inside. I felt super safe. The location was excellent as well, right outside the city walls of Lucca and next to the train station. Sometimes the train station area of a city is sketchy, but not...

We stopped in Lucca on the way to Florence to tour the city. We arrived about 6pm with no hotel reservation. We went to Hotel Rex based on the Trip Advisor ratings. The service, room, and value are outstanding. The hotel manager noticed it was my girlfriend's birthday and sent champagne to the room while we were at dinner. He...

Good: Nice family run hotel - The receptionist was very helpful and friendly – she had also reserved a park for us in front of the hotel. The location to the old-town is excellent, just outside the wall (5-minute walk). Great place to stay with or without a car as the main station is only couple of minutes away. The...

Clean, friendly service, family owned, Breakfast was buffet style, generous, varied with healthy options. Very close to the wall of Lucca and also very close to the train station and so convenient for visits to other cities. I would never stay anywhere else in Lucca
