    Our opinion

    Hotel San Luca Palace is comfortable, friendly and is in a central location for exploring Lucca.

    Hotel description

    Situated within the ancient walls of Lucca, in a square dating back to 1540, this charming hotel is the perfect base from which to explore this mediaeval city on foot. All the major monuments from the Duomo di san Martino to the Museo Nazionale di Villa Guinigi are within striking distance and even the train station is only a short walk away, meaning that Florence is very easy to get to without having to hire a car.
    The hotel is modern inside, but retains the elegance of the Palazzo in which it is housed. There are 26 rooms and suites arranged over 4 floors and each room is decorated in a comfortable style with all modern amenities.
    There is an attractive breakfast room and the hotel is especially proud of the delicious buffet it lays on each morning. The comfortable bar serves snack throughout the day and there are numerous restaurants within easy walking distance, from a local pizzeria to a more gourmet a la carte restaurant.
    This is a comfortable hotel with friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere, perfect for anyone who wishes to explore the area. There is even car parking at the hotel should you wish to hire a car.
