We have just stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and the staff were very helpful. Rooms very clean, sheets good quality, complimentary bikes available for cycling around Lucca and round city walls. Only negative comment - we didn’t enjoy the pre-packed, unappetising croissants and rolls for breakfast. Would stay here again.

This is a great hotel - perfect location for visiting Lucca as just outside the walls and easy for car parking . All the staff were so friendly and helpful . Room was lovely and very efficient windows as very little traffic noise . Free use of push bikes to use in Lucca was brilliant.

Nice hotel just outside the old town wall, so you don't have to deal with the ZTL driving issue. They have bikes to use to drive around the old city. Staff helpful. Breakfast was just OK, but it was because of Covid restrictions. Rooms comfortable

Stayed one night here. Well located and comfortable hotel just outside the town walls. It caters mainly to business but there seemed to be also many tourist travellers. The rooms are modern and functional and have effective aircon. There is car parking. There is no restaurant but the breakfast is good. The reception kindly reserved a table at a nearby restaurant, very helpful as the town centre is extremely busy. Driving in to the old town is very difficult and the Celide being on the ring road is particularly convenient for motorists.

Stayed here for a night. Clean rooms, nice terrace. Has bikes to rent. Across the walled city of Lucca. Would recommend. Breakfast was ok. The staff was nice and friendly. The bed was comfy and I slept good. The room was quiet. The spa is closed due to covid.

Hotel ideally situated a short walk from the City centre. Initially we were a little disappointed with our room, however it was very reasonably priced but would recommend the superior room. Throughout our stay the staff could not do enough and were helpful in every way. helped us find another hotel in the countryside, booked dinner reservations and served our drinks. We loaned bicycles from the hotel which made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you for a fabulous time in Lucca.

I stayed here recently and it was a very nice and functional hotel. The rooms were 3/4 star but very clean and functional. I had stayed here before and knew what to expect. Previously we went to a very good restaraunt attached to the hotel but we wanted something more casual which we found nearby. Looking at some previous comments I agree car parking is limited but ok, the reception staff were very friendly and breakfast was quite good.

Arriving at this guest house/hotel and welcomed by a miserable receptionist - my partner was instructed to a different Carpark as the one attached to the hotel was full ! We unloaded the car and at reception whilst my other half was busy parking the car I was given keys to room on first floor. There was a porter present but the Receptionist instructed the porter to leave me to my own devices and I was stranded with two suitcases and bags and coats . I asked the porter if he would help me with bags to the room but was was directed by the receptionist to leave me struggle alone - managed to put suitcases in lift alone and asked porter to assist me/ show me to room. He made an excuse that he would walk up stairs to meet me but he didn’t and hid behind the reception desk !! Clearly he was scared of the receptionist who didn’t want him to assist! AWFUL service! ! If this is how they greet their guests all I can say is dont bother ..... there must be better places to stay !!

Response from Albergo Celide L, Direttore at Albergo Celide
Responded 23 Oct 2019
Dear Guest, thank you for sharing your opinion. I'm verry sorry to read such a bad review because I think that there was a huge misunderstanding between you and our Reception Staff. I am the Hotel Manager and I always try to step into our Guest's shoes to better understand their point of view, but I don't accept the denigration of a worker, and calling someone "miserable" it's exactly this. All our Staff works hard to make our Guests live a memorable experience and we usually exceed the expectations on this matter (as you can read on the many reviews), but we are all humans and it may happen that the empathy between 2 persons doesn't just happen, and I think this is one of the rare cases. I sincerely hope that the rest of your vacation will be more satisfying than it's been so far. With my Best Regards, BP Hotel Manager

The staff in this hotel are excellent. The breakfast room is great. The decor of our room was dark, a dark tan effect which might appeal to Italians more than to northern Europeans looking for the light and vibrant colours we associate with Italy. Nonetheless, our room was spacious, comfortable and well-maintained. The hotel faces Lucca’s impressive city walls, and is conveniently located for walking into the historic city centre in the evening for a meal and a stroll afterwards. A particular attraction of the Alberto Celide for visitors to Lucca is the provision of bicycles for free to guests. That is a tremendous treat. Cycling around Lucca is fantastic and fun!

We were looking forward to our stay in this hotel and canceled other reservations when rooms became available. The rooms were modern and clean. They were not roomy but efficient. The walls were thin and we could hear the next room's TV in the early hours. Bathrooms were small. This hotel's location is perfect, a short walk to the wall or check out a bike and ride around Lucca. The free bikes were appreciated. Parking was tight but we always managed to find a space. The staff is the reason for the 3 stars, they were cold and humorless. Our last night we made reservations in the restaurant. We were seated and given menus in Italian - the menu outside the restaurant was in English and everything else in the hotel was in English. When we asked for an English menu we were told they didn't have one and a manager would be over to help us translate. Five minutes later a woman came over looking irritated ready for us to order. Having little idea of what to order we asked again if they had an English menu. She brought one over and said they only had one and left us for another ten minutes. We left, took the bikes, rode to Lucca and had a wonderful dinner. Overall, disappointing staff made this a disappointing hotel.

Responded 17 Oct 2019
Dear Guest, thank you for sharing your precious opinion and for remarking all the things you have enjoyed during your stay. We are glad to give our Guests the chance to visit Lucca using our free bicycles. Our mission is to try to make our Guests live an unforgettable experience, that's why I'm very sorry to read such a negative title as "cold and unfriendly" is. I would like to point out that your review clearly talks about the restaurant next door, which doesn't belong to the same Management. We usually recommend Celide Restaurant because we are aware of the high quality of the raw materials they use and because we always get positive feedbacks from the Customers. I will be more than happy to share with the restaurant Managers your opinion, but I'm sorry that the Hotel Staff has been called into question on this matter. The Staff is our stong suit, as you can see from the web reputation. I sincerely hope to welcome you again to have the chance to show you make you live a better experience. Warm Regards, Beatrice Pieraccini Hotel Manager
