“Lovely bed&breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

This is a small hotel half-hidden in a quiet street but it is all you need in Lucca: it is inside the walls, has its own tiny garage (do let the owner-receptionist, a lovely helpful lady, park your car for you) and is within easy walking distance from everywhere. It is also well decorated and has a nice feeling.
Breakfast was good. The bed and pillows were a little hard, but that is almost standard in hotels in Italy.

Lucca is a gem of a city, with a life of its own. It is also the birthplace of Puccini and his house, which is being restored, will be open to visitors soon this month.

I have stayed in three different hotels in Lucca during previous trips to Italy, and the Dimora Lucense is by far my favorite hotel! It is ideally located just a block from the Piazza Amphiteatro, and just a half-block from Via Filungo, the main shopping street. Access to the Passeggiata sur la Mura (the walkway on top of the wall) is very close, as is the Lazzi bus depot. The train station is a short taxi ride or a 20-minute walk from the hotel.
Our room was charmingly decorated, comfortable, and certainly of adequate size for two adults. It was immaculately clean, as was the bathroom, quiet, and with good amenities (all of which worked perfectly!), including air-conditioning.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful, especially Ester (front desk), who suggested restaurants, cultural events, printed out bus and train schedules, and arranged for a taxi with great pleasantness and good humor.
The breakfast was a generous continental buffet in a lovely room that doubles as a cozy bar in the evening, and was a good value for the price.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Alla Dimora Lucense to anyone! Enjoy!

My boyfriend's parents (in their 50s) stayed here during our trip through Italy, so I write this partly on their behalf.

The hotel was very nice. located within the city walls but driving there is a hassle. They do have a private garage, but we angered more than a few locals trying to drive through the tiny streets. It's a small, tight garage, where fitting in cars is a bit of a puzzle so not the best if you're planning on using your car on a daily basis. We left the car in the garage during our whole stay. Their room was nice and roomy - though on the second floor next to the breakfast area, so not the best if you like to sleep in.

The staff here was incredibly nice and helpful! Even though my boyfriend and I were staying at a cheaper hostel across town, they had no problem with us coming in and out throughout the day, and hanging out in the breakfast area. Everyone was always friendly. They also helped us locate a small town outside of Lucca where my bf's grandfather was born, and arranged our transportation, as the town wasn't on any maps we had. Staff had wonderful restaurant recommendations as well.

These people give Italy a bad name. What you get for 130 euros in late October is an average room and if you want to park, its another 15 euros. It gets better - they charge 18 euros for breakfast which consists of not more than the usual coffee, rolls, and pastries. I went to breakfast in the morning thinking it was included (which is customary in Italian hotels) only to find out at check-out that I got socked with the charge. Not very customer focused. I was so angry when I left their establishment that I never wanted to set foot in Lucca again, which is too bad.

This is a bed and breakfast, as other reviewers have pointed out. The desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and reasonably quiet at night. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. You must note that the breakfast is an extra charge and I found it more appealing to go out for something to eat in the morning, although not necessarily more economical!
The audio tour that the tourist information office offers for 9 euro was a good introduction to the city and its sights.
