“A comfortable and friendly hotel”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

The Hotel San Marco is a modern hotel in a quiet location outside the city walls.

All the staff are friendly. The reception staff speak good English and gave us exceptional help in booking taxis and trips.

The room was very modern and clean - not huge but comfortable. The towels were of good quality. The only downside was the bathroom which was rather small. There was a large crack in the tiling down the side of the shower. This was wholly inconsistent with the overall quality of every other aspect of the hotel which is very high.

There is a pleasant and useful lounge/reception area as well as a small seating area outside between the hotel and the poolside. The pool is quite small. I wouldn't call it large enough for a decent swim, but it is large enough for about six to seven strokes from end to end. It's certainly worth using to cool down. The poolside area is quite small but in August was large enough for all those who wanted to use it. Both the pool and the outside area are quite close to the road but this was not a problem.

Breakfast in the hotel was very good - lots of variety: pastries, eggs, ham, cheese, cereals, fruit, yogurts etc.

If I were going to a hotel purely to lie in the sum all day I would choose somewhere with a larger outside area. However, for a base for sightseeing this hotel is ideal and perfectly adequate for a few hours of relaxation.

We spent 8 nights here and had a very comfortable stay. The staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Rooms are very modern, clean and comfortable.
The hotel is well situated for the city but it is a 20 minute walk into the centre.
The pool is very nice but it is tiny and not a place to spend the day.
Breakfast is good.

Went to Lucca for one night to see Burt Bacharach. The hotel is fine, the man on reception went out his way to be friendly, everywhere is clean, the breakfast was good. The walk to town is about 10 minutes. Top marks for an good hotel.

This hotel is 3-star and has concentrated and mostly caters for business but is a perfect choice for anyone. Nothing over-the-top but excellent in what matters such as good beds, dark-out blinds, quiet and decent bathroom. Would go again as it is also very well situated close to the old part of Lucca. No point in trying to find anything better for that price. Only thing not so great was breakfast but then we have not tried any other hotel in the area so cannot compare. Overall we'd stay there again as it was so comfortable.

Opposite side of town to the train station BUT, 10 min walk to the walls and all of the shopping and attractions. Spend the 10 euros on a taxi from the station you tight gits and enjoy this modern (for Italy) hotel. Very clean. Staff very helpful. Swimming pool was wonderfull in may.
