Historical Traveler Reviews Alla Corte Degli Angeli Lucca
A Big Disappointment!
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.

... blocks away at the Piazza Carmine. They returned, without incident, laden with provisions that should keep us well-fed until we depart for Florence at the end of the week!
All in all, a great day, with clear blue skies and cool temperatures making for ideal walking conditions. Although it is dropping into the upper-40s overnight, by mid-afternoon it reaches the mid-60s, so it's still coat and scarf weather at the moment.

... of the famed Leaning Tower of Pisa in its gleaming white marble glory. All along the way I noted tiny bits that I wanted to preserve by photo or video, but they whizzed by, and I knew photographs could never accurately capture them. The breeze, the smells, the perspectives shifting slowly as we pedaled along. All the beautiful sights beneath the blue skies and the very warm "Tuscan sun". These are the moments that life is made of. ...
... us in to Vinci, we arrived and found a parking spot. Lunch? - we wandered the main street (it's really short) - with every shop closed because it was between 1pm and 4pm, except the bar in the corner - two yummy sandwiches and two cappuccini (I succumbed to ordering these, even if it was after 11) and 6,60euros later we were fed. Asked for directions from the guy behind the counter and onward we went to the Museo Leonardino - what a magnificent place! - the models, the drawings - ...
