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...

The place close to the train station offer a good location with confortable room and very agréable staff. The hotel is managed by family staff that offer a warm stay. Breakfast is served in the ground floor and is well assorted with suite and salted food. Coffe and cappuccino are also good.

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...

We were greeted like old friends as soon as we walked in the lobby. The reception people are friendly & helpful. The rooms are immaculate & there is even a tea maker & biscuits in every room. 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...
