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.

... Craig had rabbit, I had lasagna, Terri had melanzana and Paul had a giant pizza – all delicious. Walked back and did a bit more shopping. I found some starry, purple bracelets, which I bought for my Cedar stars and Terri bought several gift items. We also bought a Caravaggio calendar for 2015. On the way home we saw an overturned truck on the autostrada, which slowed down the other side, but once again it is wonderful to be back here at Uliveto. Sitting out on the deck once ...
... little Panda meant I shuttled them to the old walled city, and that left us men and G & H at the villa. They`ll probably find some beautiful boots, maybe the odd bag, and heaven knows what else, and will come back to our village on the little train. Grant has fed G & H, Steve is outside next to the pool reading Trigger, Tim`s latest book, and I`m ...
... earned dinner at Bruna's house in Lugo. We visit Bruna and Giovanni every year and she always makes a spectacular meal. As it was a Friday during Lent, this year's meal was frutta di mare (fruit of the sea). After the meal, we took a walk around Lugo. There was an exhibit at the local library concerning the role of the Jewish community of Lugo in the reunification of Italy (Risorgimento). We visited that and you can see a few pictures below. Bruna ...
... and then another train. All these were on instructions from a woman with very little English who was not actually sure if you could get a train from La Spezia to Levanto, but suggested I give it a try. I was very very relieved to in fact reach Levanto that night.
On arrival in Levanto the day took a definite turn for the better. First the cute taxi driver asked if I was Italian, he was somewhat confused because I didn't seem to speak Italian (Yay!). Then the ...
... brae and flo tried out. We then walked again along a slightly higher and longer track to the last village Corniglia which had the challenging 382 steps at the end to the top of the village. This Village was not very exciting at all, we enjoyed a cold refreshing gelato after an active day in the heat. We were lucky enough to get on a train back to Milan before the trains went on strike ( typical Italy). It was a great way to spend my last full day and really enjoyed the ...
