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.

... that is really well preserved and not much changed from those times. The wall itself is about the width of a narrow road so a very popular activity for locals and tourists is to walk with prams and dogs, run, cycle around it. It took us 25 minutes at a slow cycling pace to go all the way around.
Inside the walls, we quickly decided exploring would be easier on foot so we chained the bikes up and set off. The ...
... on in the hike because there was no sign showing that the trail went left. We instead took a foot trail through some vineyards before coming to a dead end. We went back and found another foot trail that took us to a rusty fenced off section that we climbed over. We thought that because it was off-season perhaps this trail was fenced off, so we continued on. We saw metal poles with rope and thought that we were on a trail, but as the over vegetated trail took a ...

The Campo Santo (a monumental cemetery) is quiet, peaceful, and full of history.
These three, plus the Tower made for a great visit, and once again plenty of photographs were taken. We also visited the museum as it was part of the ticket we'd purchased.
A little about the importance of tickets: you can buy a single ticket to climb the tower, ...
... as you turned the corner of the entrance road to the "Campo dei Miracoli" was yet another "Wow" moment - the tower does lean rather impressively (we all thought we got good vlue for money in terms of the ratio of cost to angle of lean!). There was a spot of last minute bother as we (a) collected the pre-booked tickets (actually, very straightforward), (b) located toilets (I was shouted at by the attendant as I didn't have the required 0.5 Euros!), and (c) negotiated the ...
... the street, young men stand silently in the corners holding two dozen purses and bags in their arms. Near the water shuttles they sell umbrellas. In the squares the glo saucers shoot high into the air, but also sell some kind of light that shoots little green lighted dot patterns on the ground that dance under your feet like lights from a disco ball. They also have men who throw down clear putty squishy toys on on the ground to show you that the squishy ...
