    The hotel is right next to the station but no noise of trains or traffic. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, had the atmosphere of a family run hotel. Our room was very spacious, the breakfast very good and free internet access also. The location is excellent, 5 minutes from the town through a path and gate in the walls. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

    I chose this hotel for its proximity to both the town of Lucca (in which I would spend most of my time) and the railway station (for arrival/departure and day trips.) The location was great as the hotel is just outside the Lucca city wall. The hotel itself was neat, clean, comfortable, very quiet, efficiently run, with a good large breakfast with many choices on offer. Free wifi and bicycles to borrow.

    Within 100m walk of railway station. Looks out onto an open landscaped square. Old Lucca is a 5 mins walk away. Breakfast quite satisfactory for an italian breakfast, food fresh and an ample supply.Staff very helpful and friendly.

    traffic noise outside can be heard if windows are opened. This can be isolated by doubled glazing and internal shutters, but aircon will need to be available. it was not operational in April. This may be a problem later in warmer months. Hotel would benefit from redecoration of paint work and various plaster edges and corners that show signs of use.

    Just across park from railway station but easy 5 min walk to wall gate. Staff could not have been more obliging. Room was one of the largest we stayed in during our month in Italy. Adequate breakfast, only hotel we stayed in with tea making facilities in room also a fridge. Bathroom was reasonable size with toiletries. Not the most modern interior but great value for money and quiet. Very enjoyable stay at this friendly family run hotel.

    Staff recommended a local restaurant for dinner (instead of the tourist spots) and it was brilliant - just outside the old town, one of the best meals of our trip. Hotel just outside main train station and near entry to the old town. Room large and clean. Double glazing helped keep out the noise.

    It advertised free wifi for internet but it disconnected at 11pm. In the morning we found tiny writing on the receipt said "8 hours connection" which is from the time you first connect. So we only had an hour's use. They allowed me to reconnect for an important email but it didn't make up for a wasted hour at night trying to get it to work. Also, the hotel gets a bit tacky trying to be "kid-friendly", eg a display of plastic Disney plates and cutlery for kids in the dining room. Breakfast was odd, pre-packaged and half-hearted.

    The mother and daughter managers and night staff were EXTREMELY helpful in locating the external services we needed. English was excellent, and they made our stay enjoyable. Also the location 300 feet from the train station was critical. Free bikes made it possible to tour the Lucca city wall easily.

    The location was great especially since we had a car. Left it in front of the hotel which is next to Lucca railway station which initially I thought could be a problem but had no issues at all. Family run hotel. Lovely people to deal with who have a good knowlledge of english language. Highly recommend.

    The lovely family who run this hotel could not have been more welcoming and kind. Nothing was too much trouble. They even offerd us free bicycles and we were able to cycle around the walls and through the city making the most of the time we had there. Just stayed one night in order to see Lucca. This hotel is right next to train station and convenient to eateries and shops. Just across the road to the old city walls

    Not the most luxurious hotel, but excellent in price quality ratio, great location and superfriendly hotel staff (the older men can be more grumpy but that is italian, no?)

    Location was terrific,breakfast also and thought the staff were very good,right down to getting a small gift when we were leaving.

    Unless you fully closed the windows and shutters it was noisy.but one night was Saturday night so there was plenty happening outside.
