The hotel's easiest enough to find if you enter through the correct gate to the walled city but parking and finding you way out again through narrow one way streets with sharp turns is tricky. So leave your mercedes or jaguar at home and hire a punto ! The rooms are ok. Nothing too special and nothing too wrong, but...

We stayed three nights, day tripping to Florence and smaller Tuscan towns from Lucca. The hotel is lovely, with a beautiful breakfast/tea room in the morning and personable staff. The decor is exquisite. Excellent staff recommendations for dining inside the walls of Lucca. Highly lrecommend.

Lucca as a walled city had wealth and power, this hotel is a reflection of that splendor. The decor and building materials are of this era. The hotel was built in 1044 above a Roman tower that you can see in the breakfast room, the hallway floors are marble, the rooms are inlaid timber, the furniture is period. The location...

Our first night in Italy and we could not have been more pleased with our three night stay at this warm and wonderful hotel. Traveling by car we passed the hotel and thought we were lost when a handsome young man (managers son) tapped our window and had us back up a the narrow street just a little and there...

Great location. Lovely hotel. Welcoming and friendly staff. This was a true delight. We arrived outside the walls and were met by the proprietor's son who took our luggage. As we checked in we could tell the pride Mario has for his hotel and his city. He was eager to share stories about the decor and history of his property...

We stayed 3 nights and wish it could have been longer. This was our first destination after arriving in Florence and it could not have hoped for a better choice .Took a bus from the airport for about 6 Euro each, a lot less expensive than a train and very scenic. Hotel Alexander was no more than 7 minute walk...

We booked one night here at the end of our visit to Tuscany. The rest of the time we stayed in an appartment in Florence. The Hotel is very near the bus station - an easy walk even with luggage, and the bus is a great way to travel to and from Lucca. This is a family run hotel and...

Stayed here for six nights during our trip to Italy. Took a taxi from the train station, just ten minutes journey. Arrived a little early and was welcomed from the minute our taxi arrived, cases taken into the beautiful reception area. Lovely small hotel which we prefer, more personal and the owner Mario obviously knows the business well and is...

The staff was wonderful. Every day before breakfast we discussed where we were going - what we planned to see. We always received suggestions and tips which really helped to make our trip memorial. The room was very nice, the breakfast buffet wonderful, I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for two nights - and loved it. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and the bed wonderful. The central heating goes on in the mornings, so the bathroom get nicely heated by the towell rack. The building in itself is very charming, and the whole hotel is decorated accordingly. The breakfast...
