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

We stayed for a long weekend at the Hotel Rex in early October 2016. The room we stayed in had all we could wish for, including a kettle - biscuits were available from a table near the lift. The breakfast was continental and very nice. The location is excellent if you plan to use the train for visits to Pisa,...

Great location just outside the city walls within easy walking distance of the centre. Free parking is available outside which the owner will guide you to. Hotel decor is a little old fashioned and we would have liked to have air conditioning. Owner is very friendly and helpful

The Hotel Rex was PERFECT: steps from the train station...and steps to an entry point to the beautiful walled city of Lucca. The hotel was absolutely charming--so many lovely, little "extras" like tea service and biscuits in the hall and a cozy play nook for children. Our room was comfortable and well appointed, and the breakfast provided with our reservation...

The complimentary breakfast has something for everyone . Especially the delicious croissant. The beds & linens are great. So very happy to have...

It can’t get more convenient than this – step off the train, cross a parking lot, & there you are at this truly nice hotel. Our stay was delightful, starting with the fun, sassy hotel clerk who had us laughing from check-in to departure (how on earth did we leave without getting his name?). Really comfy beds, sizable & spotless...

The hotel is in a great position just on the outskirts of the wall, about 5 min walk to the main gate and is very close to the train station. Our room was clean but very basic. The two ladies on the front desk were very friendly and helpful, unfortunately the same can't be said of the guy working behind...

This is a great little hotel just steps from the train station and from the walled city. I appreciated the location to the train station after a transatlantic flight, instead of negotiating the rabbit warren of streets that is Lucca. Breakfast was good with typical selections. Valentina at the front desk is a delight!

Lucca is a wonderful little city and this hotel really was the icing that made our 4 day stay a memorable one. As two young couples with 2 kids, one of whom less than a year old, the hotel management was very accommodating towards our requests. Moreover, one is greeted with genuine smiles and the hotel has a kids corner...
