      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ilaria Lucca

      Good find

      from

      We had a car and were visiting riends in Lucca and stumbled across Hotel Illaria.

      The rooms are clean and tey have on-site parking. Also it is located just across the road from the wall surrounding Lucca so it is in walking distance (or you can borrow one of the bikes offered by the hotel) of all the sites of Lucca.

      I would definitely recommend it.

      Look no further

      from

      This is a fantastic hotel and I would recommend it to anyone.

      It is easy to find and well located within the walled city, the decor is smart and stylish, the staff are exceptionally friendly and professional, and just round the corner are two great restaurants.

      We had interconecting rooms which are great for families.

      Good standard

      from

      Hotel Ilaria was our first stop after flying in to Pisa. Lucca is a must see and the Ilaria is a good base. Excellent service. Room rate was 180 euros including a very good breakfast served on a really lovely atmospheric verranda looking onto an enormous tree. This was a great way to start the day.

      The room was international business standard - good, very new and comfortable. The winning feature for us was the complementary bicycles - the best way to see Lucca is on two wheels. With the breakfast and bicylcles it was worth the money - but there are cheaper places in Lucca (residences / pensiones) probably a bit more authentic (and crabby) if you're looking for the 'real Italy'.

      Very good hotel within city walls - quite expensive, though

      from

      We liked this hotel a lot. Staff were very welcoming. Our room wasn't ready (only because we arrived early) so they made us comfy in the lounging area and got us some refreshments.

      Room was nice and big. Breakfast was good - very fresh produce - lots of fresh fruit.

      Although the hotel was very good, I would say that it was slightly overpriced (probably expensive because it's within the city walls and also has parking facilities).

      Terrific staff and service

      from

      This is a wonderful place. You will not find a more friendly staff. The hotel is inside the city walls and is a 10 minute walk to any one of two dozen little, cozy excellent restaurants. The staff will take care of any need that you have if you ask them for it. They are like a family to each other and to their guests.

      Luxurious apartments, very friendly staff

      from

      We booked two rooms for 450 Euros a night including breakfast and were given apartments round the corner from the main hotel. They had sitting areas and beautiful main bathrooms, in addition to an excellent shower room on the first storey, adjacent to the bed area. The staff were genuinely friendly throughout the hotel, though not able to get a couple of faults fixed on a Sunday. Mattress on the bed settee was a bit thin for our 14-year old but we improvised with the thick cushions on the floor.

      We had been recommended Lucca as a base to see Pisa but Lucca's historic centre is probably too large for its own good - there is no heart and the restaurants and bars are spread out, and not very good quality.

      A cool base in a hot city

      from

      We arrived in Lucca, hot and tired and in search of a hotel and stumbled upon the Hotel Illaria which is situated very centrally just by the city walls. I knew as soon as I approached reception that we were in for a treat, it was cool, smart and immaculate. There were three members of staff on duty and they all stopped what they were doing and welcomed me with broad smiles. One of them showed me the rooms that were available. Some in the main hotel were absolutely fine, but ordinary. He then offered to show me a suite in the annex which is a restored historic building just across the road. The one we saw and stayed in (no.24) was on two levels with a beautiful bed on a mezzanine. There were two bathrooms, one a Jacuzzi, and a comfortable sitting area with two sofas and a dining table. A pile of books about Tuscany lay next to the flat screen TV and there was a bowl of complimentary biscuits, nuts and fruit. It was so very comfortable and we really enyoyed it. Back to the main hotel for complimentary soft drinks and real coffee we took advantage of the free bikes and city audio guide. This is a hotel run with great care and attention to detail and I strongly recommend it as a base to see the lovely city of Lucca. Plan ahead and get tickets for one of the many Summer concerts.

      Charming hotel with modern accomodations

      from

      The Ilaria hotel is a charming hotel with superb service and modern accomodations. Our room was a two story room with two bathrooms, a whirlpool tub, a living room with a flat screen TV. The room has modern ammenities including automated closets. We enjoyed staying at this hotel where staff was very helpful and the common areas manitained impecable. The courtesy bikes from the hotel, made the visit to Lucca easy and a unique experience. I would highly recommend this hotel, very different from all the other "old" type of hotels found in Europe.

      Loved the Hotel Ilaria

      from

      The family suite actually consists of two bedroom lofts and two sitting areas including two sofa beds with a total of 4 bathrooms for 400 Euro per night. We accomodated six people very comfortably. The staff and hotel are excellent. I highly recommend this hotel.

      Helpful and friendly

      from

      The rooms are business traveller standard. However the location takes the Ilaria to a higher level. Lucca is a jewel and a joy to explore on foot or by bicycle-supplied at no charge by the hotel. The Ilaria has no restaurant and the breakfast service is do it yourself. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the public room is comfortable.

      Lucca and More

      From the tiny airport in Florence to the bus, and then for the drive to Lucca, it seemed as if the trip would never end. Finally we arrived at the Elisa Gate and met Olivia, our trip leader. From there it was a 5 minute walk to our hotel in the Old Town. I was enchanted by a brief trip to Lucca on my first trip to Italy, and the fact that we would …

      We made it to Lucca and Cinque Terra. We are actually staying in the town of Levatno which is not one of the five, but actually the sixth of the five (cinque). Wireless has been pretty terrible since we left Barcelona so I cannot write much here except to say it is beautiful. The people here a boisterous ( I am listening to them talking right now as I write this at 1030 on a Tuesday which may mean they are on ...

      Of course, after all that exercise, needed a reward. Dropped into the gelateria opposite only to find the gelato bar empty. Totally empty. I was devastated. Easily resolved - just cycled into Lucca till we found a gelateria open.

      ... and good, but 1 Aussie and 1 American really had no idea what the others were saying even though they have been in Lucca for 1 month learning Italian. 1 of them is 18 years old and the Aussie is 50+ and they have become best friends!!!??? Let us just say that they could possibly be a little annoying at times as they are both very loud and inappropriate occasionally and I could see the very good Italian speakers doing a bit of a "tutt tutting" kind ...
