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.

... and about an hour and twenty later we found ourselves miles from nowhere, out in the countryside. We met some Canadians who assured us the next stop was where we got off and how wrong they were. Of a bus packed with tourists only four people got off at that stop - two Canadians and two kiwis! We had to walk for 2 kilometres in the blazing heat before we arrived at San Callisto Catacombs, and as luck would have it they are the biggest and best of them all.

... go back down to cool off!! Catch 22 much?! It was into lunchtime now and we were hungry!! We had walked breakfast WELL off and needed some fuel and energy. We walked past a place with a lovely menu and it had an amazing view. But we thought we may as well have a look around first. We
walked up more streets and came to a panoramic terrace. Here there were
more beautiful views over the riviera and to the other villages. It is
seriously so beautiful and wonderful in ...
On the road again in Tuscany, today we will
see Pisa and Lucca and then on to Venice. We left our three bedroom
apartment in Florence. Beatrice was amazing. Her dad stayed up to wait
for us. We were there for 2 nights. What I love about the place is that
it’s not new but its pretty modern. First of all, the lights are remote
control, so convenient. The key is the European skeleton key but it’s
also pretty ...
... not familiar with Lucca, it is an ancient Tuscan town near the larger, more famous cities of Florence and Siena. Centuries ago they built a wall around their city, as was custom, to keep out the marauding Pisans. Over the years, they thickened and reinforced the walls as war technology improved. And fortunately, they've never had to use it.
Those Luccans, they were a very smart bunch. They had a giant, thick wall to protect themselves from the outside. And ...

From Milan we ventured to the far north-eastern corner and the famous city of Venice. We knew that Venice was low lying and full of canals but were not actually aware that it is an island, well off the ...
