Having enjoyed last nights concert, we decided to go again tonight. So after breakfast , we toddle off down the main road, well laneway, back to the Church to buy the tickets. As we had already been the night before we got a discount. Our plan for the day was then to take an easy walk round the 4km of the city walls. As we head towards them, we …
Apparently Tom Wonton is the best way to describe my written 'style' for want of a better word. Poor soul I think he was trying to speak Australian and overcompensated for his skinny vowels. Sorry about that! It is washing day in Lucca, it is raining I am doing boring domestic chores and it is still beautiful. As I sit at a cafe across the lane …
After a lovely meal, nice music and a couple of glasses of wine: For the first time I have fallen in love with a location. Never before that I recall have I wondered around feeling comfortable, happy and impressed all at the same time. Maybe it is today's contrasting experiences: from country to commercial to classy. As usual my ideas are in front …
... oil. The place was breathtaking beautiful with seating outside at tables with candles and chandeliers and the meal made us feel like we were in Foody Heaven. Our meal started with a selection of over 20 antipastos complemented by 3 different bottles of their wine, followed by 2 pasta dishes, one with bacon and truffels, the other was porcini mushrooms. Now this is what I had been dreaming that pasta would taste like. It melted in your ...
... music performed by a professional orchestra. The performance was held in a a very old church, great acoustics but very hard benches, in the old walled city. Puccini wrote such things as Madame Butterfly and la Boheme among many others. Our performance was devoted to the music of Johann and Josef Strauss. It was an impressive experience finished with a drive home under a Tuscan ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alla Corte Degli Angeli Lucca
We stayed at this hotel in early October at the end of a 3-week touring holiday of Italy. I'd booked it because of Tripadvisor reviews and Fodor's recommendation. I don't know whether we hit it at a bad time, but it was the only hotel that we really disliked. The young man at reception was surly and unhelpful, we were told we couldn't use the air conditioning because it had been switched to central heating mode (we had no such problem anywhere else we stayed) and the breakfast was poor - a jug of coffee and another of milk sat on a warming plate and you helped yourself. It was lukewarm and watery. The fruit was tinned, the bread stale-ish and the croissants had the flavour of a supermarket packet. The only redeeming feature was a bowl of oranges and an electric juicer so that you could at least have one thing that was fresh. The room and shower were adequate, but this is not somewhere we'd return to.
Alla Corte degli Angeli
A first class joy right in the middle of all you want to see and
do. Friendly and helpful staff. Be sure to rent a bike and
go for a ride on the ramparts of the walled city.
We travel by train and did need a taxi to get to the
b&b, but one is not needed again until time to leave.
First class accommodation
This accommodation is a total gem. We loved our stay in Lucca and it was enhanced by staying in this charming hotel. Elegant rooms with beauitiful wood ceiling. I can't say enough about the helpful staff. They really took the time to make our stay comfortable. Thank you!!!
Quiet haven inside Lucca's walls
As we entered Lucca's walled old section, our Fiat wagon seemed huge. We barely made the turn onto the street following Alle Corti's directions on the second attempt, and were glad to give the car to our host to park. No need for a car in Lucca. We walked the city walls and enjoyed a great meal a few steps away before retiring to spacious room, beamed ceilings, well appointed bath. The street was filled with live music that ended around midnight, enjoyable through our open second-floor window.
Perfect small hotel
A beautiful small hotel within the walled city of Lucca. We had 2 rooms for our family of 5 and couldn't have been more happy. Perfect location, near great shopping and restaurants. The rooms are great, with modern plumbing. The staff was extremely helpful, would make an expresso in the afternoon after a tiring day of touring. Excellent breakfast. Would have liked to stay longer!
Within the Walls Gem
It's tough to find a place within the walls of this wonderful city, but this is a gem. Quiet location, excellent help from staff, secure parking, large, attractive, clean rooms with superb bath facility, and a great breakfast in a lovely room. Refreshments in early evening. We'll stay here again.
Worth looking for
This small hotel is hard to find within the old walled city, but well worth the effort. Our room was large and recently redone. The decorating was lovely. The bath was the largest one we had in our 16 day trip to Italy. The dining room was beautiful with a lovely handpainted mural on the walls. The staff was very helpful. We would definately stay here again.
Very elegant place. We loved it!
We found the rooms to be elegant. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was well located. We felt it was a real jewel.
Exceptional little hotel
Such a charming hotel in a good location, yet on a quiet side street.
Our room featured the Bird of Paradise (each room has a different floral motif) on draperies, pillows, and hand-painted tiles in the bath. Extra pillows and towels were provided, as were bath robes! Very good continental breakfast was included.
Pretty and quirky small hotel. Welcoming atmosphere and extremely friendly and helpful receptionist.
Lucca was a breath of fresh air. Thoroughly recommend hiring bikes and riding around the city wall.
Best feature of bedroom was the jacuzzi bath. Excellent location.
