This was truly the most welcoming hotel I have ever stayed in. Upon our arrival Inna jumped into action to help us get our car parked and Francesco put us into a lovely garden room location because we were staying for four nights. The hotel is nicely decorated and comfortable. Our room was a good size and a had a large bathroom. We had our own little garden area with two chairs for sunning plus a patio table with four chairs. Perfect for a late afternoon cocktail. It was our own little oasis. The pool and patio area is a great place to hang out and enjoy the beautiful weather. The breakfast dining area is large and the breakfast options were a much large offering then we found anywhere else in Italy. They have a limited dinner menu but after a long day of touring we were happy to stay in and enjoy dinner sitting out on the patio and chatting with the Inna and the other team members who were all very friendly and welcoming. They have full bar service which includes a house owned micro brewed beer and an exclusive wine offering. The hotel is located in a nice neighborhood setting and is a short walk to the old city of Lucca. They have parking available as part of the property making it easy to get in and out. The front desk team was helpful in planning our next day adventures. Honestly Francesco, Inna and the other staff members went above and beyond with customer service and made our stay at the Hotel San Marco one we will cherish forever.

The hospitality I receive from Ina and her dedicated team every time I stay here is phenomenal - it’s personal, non intrusive and nothing is too much trouble. It’s also quiet and the grounds are beautiful with a stunning swimming pool. I am so happy to return for the first time since COVID and find the place thriving because they deserve it.

Stayed here for 4 nights towards the end of June after picking up a hire car from Pisa airport. We could not have chosen better. Whilst the hotel is located just outside the northern wall of the city, parking was not an issue despite the hotel being busy. The walk from the hotel to the walls is no more than 10 minutes at most. The service from the staff was superb; they seem to be a very cheerful team and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast buffet was wide ranging and tasty and with warm weather, enjoyed on the outside terrace. Bedroom was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Highly recommended.

Excellent boutique style hotel on the outside wall of Lucca. Great location, 1Omins walk into centre. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms with balcony were great. Rm 3, not huge a little dark but perfectly fine as you’re hardly in it! Pool area is also compact, but fine. Excellent breakfast offer. Reception staff are so helpful. We had a wonderful stay.

This tardis of a hotel is spotlessly clean and the wonderful staff fell over themselves to help us find and book restaurants and taxis. As well as being friendly and cheerful with customers, we noticed a real family feel amongst them as they went about their work which was a pleasure to be around. Hotel San Marco is just outside the walls of Lucca, within a very short walking distance making it ideally placed for exploring. Make sure to check out the garden by the pool which is unbelievably fragrant thanks to the bay hedge that surrounds it - it's divine. We are planning a trip back to this hotel later this year to give us more time to explore Lucca.

We stayed at Hotel San Marco last year and we decided to come back this year for the month of May . The Hotel is situated a short , flat comfortable walk from the walls of Lucca . We loved our stay here everything about Hotel San Marco was like a big Italian hug . The staff , kind hearted Francesco with his brilliant dinner recommendations , the very funny crazy Fabio ,the delightful Inna , the helpful Italo and Pietro and all the ladies in the breakfast room . They where all so hospitable, friendly and made us feel a part of the Hotel San Marco ‘family’ Our rooms were spotless every day and the cleaners were so efficient . The gardens and pool was a welcome oasis after a hot day walking within the walls . At breakfast , after a couple of days we no longer needed to ask for a coffee it would arrive at the table before we came back from the toaster . Lucca is magnificent and so is Hotel San Marco . Bravo ! We will be back next year to stay at this wonderful hotel

Congratulations to Hotel San Marco for having 5 stars employees! Shout out to Fabio and Ina. They are the best hotel staff that we had ever met in our entire career of 30 years moving from countries to countries. The hotel is very cosy and the staff are friendly. The location is also superb for anyone visiting Lucca, Italy.

The hotel is a little bit away from the walled city of Lucca, but it's walkable distance. The food at the hotel is great, the service is excellent and everyone I met speak English. The outside pool isn't the biggest in the world, but it works!

The rooms are well appointed and v clean with good bathrooms, they seem to have been recently refurbished. The pool and garden area is lovely, lots of loungers and deckchairs; very welcome and relaxing after a day of sightseeing. We received a great welcome when we arrived at this hotel. The manager and the evening/night receptionist were both very helpful and made excellent recommendations. The hotel is less than a 10 minute easy walk from the city walls. An excellent location and quieter than being in the centre. The hotel provides free parking and hires out bikes for a half or full day.
