We were here at the end of august. Fine location to visit Lucca from. Everything is within walking distance. Hotelrooms are clean and have all facilities you need (airco, clean, good but small shower). The hotel is very cosy and the rooms are decorated tasteful and romantic (as mentioned above, they have the names of the opera's of Puccini). It is very recommendable to listen to a Puccini concert. Conclusion: an excellent hotel for 3 days Lucca!!
