“Fantastic hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

Great location in Lucca- just within old walls and easy walk from train station. Staff were charming and very friendly. A nice touch was the free coffee, drinks in the foyer for guests to help themselves. Breakfast was excellent- included the usual cheese, salamis but also hot food- scrambled eggs, bacon. The room was super clean and overlooked the hotel patio area. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Ilaria is in a terrific location - especially if you came in by train like I did but there was also sufficient parking.

I thought it was fantastic value for money - the rooms are comfortable with a fantastic tub to soak in after a day or two walking and cycling the medieval surrounds.

Breakfast is very generous and the all day complimentary cafeteria bar keeps you stocked up with various refreshments and meant I could splash out a little more on a few special Lucchese dinners!

There is also a jacuzzi and sun beds, which I found a great respite after a long morning cycle and nice to cool off and also have a sun bake under the Tuscan sun.

The staff are all friendly but professional with a good knowledge of things to do and see. There is a comfortable lobby lounge and library too which encourages interaction with other guests, which I found to be mostly middle-aged Americans/Spanish/Germans and the odd business traveller.

The free bikes were also a great touch.

I'll definitely highly recommend to Friends as Lucca itself is a definite gem of the Tuscan countryside and Ilaria the perfect spot to help you enjoy your time there.

We were two couples who travelled to Lucca and Hotel Ilaria and we all loved it. I work in a hotel myself and just wanted to pack all of the emplyees in the bag and bring them with me home. Excellent service and the feeling we had when we left was that we hope we will have the opportunty to come back some day. The bed are typical Italian beds so nothing to complain about and the breakfast was beutiful :) We loved our life when we sat in the garden with prosecco and cakes. It was like heaven!

Thank you Hotel llaria for giving us some lovely days in Lucca.

hOTEL Ilaria in Lucca was excellent place to stay for two nights. When we arrived we were upgraded from a superior unit to a two level suite with two bathrooms. It was in a satellite building a short walk from the office which was no trouble at all. Breakfast was well served and they had a dandy coffee machine for mixing to your own specifications. Lucca is a charming town with delightful churches and narrow streets. We rode bikes, compliments of the hotel, around the walled city walkway. It seems that almost everyone in Lucca rides a bike. We happened to be in town for the monthly antique show on the 3rd weekend of the month. Fun to see. This is a charming city and the hotel was a perfect place to relax after a full day on your feet. This is a hotel that deserves to be stayed in again. Rooms were very spacious and clean with nice bed and bathroom facitlites.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the free bike loans by Hotel Ilaria. Nice to ride around the parameter of the city...
