It doesn't get better than this

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: I loved the helpful staff and the wonderful food for breakfast including two tortes every day, croissants, eggs bacon toast coffee.
Cons: There is nothing I can think of........
Location: Location is central to many of Luccas sites. The whole inner city within the walls can be reached by walking in 20 minutes.
We stayed at this hotel for 9 days August 2014. The staff was exceptional and we really got to know the three main workers for the hotel who are Mario, Alexander and Gabrielle. They are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are a mix of traditional decor and yet functional and comfortable. It is very clean and well taken care of. The rooms are spacious and the air conditioning works well

Excellent hotel and location!!

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Beautiful d├ęcor with a real Medieval feel. Friendly staff; excellent location.
Location: Right inside the walled city of Luca. This allowed us to walk easily anywhere we went.
We loved staying here! An excellent experience to stay inside the walled city of Luca. A gorgeous room, and a hotel. Great attention to cleanliness. And a gorgeous parlour where we had breakfast each morning.

Silver wedding trip

Posted Jul 26, 2014
Pros: Beautifully restored. Ideal location for a celebration. Just what we were looking for in an Italian city break.
Cons: Tea / coffee in room would be good, as would a shower curtain !
Location: Circuit of the City Walls, climb the Guingini Tower for the best view in town, visit the cathedral, eat lots of ice cream, wander around for hours.
Beautiful hotel in a fabulous city. Attentive staff, nothing appeared to be too much trouble. Very atmospheric location with everything in close reach. Easy place to spend hours just wandering around. We were recommended Rama restaurant by the hotel staff - fantastic if you like seafood.

Messed up booking, had to shuffle between hotels

Posted Jun 4, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: More trustworthy staff
I was told on arrival that my booking had been incorrectly recorded, that I would have to spend the first night of two in a another hotel, and would then have to return to the Palazzo Alexander (i.e. no chance of staying at the other hotel for two nights - it was much better). I had to pack up my belongings after one night in order for them to be moved back - a real pain. I didn't trust the hotel manager's explanations; I suspect that as a single traveller my reservation was changed to suit his other bookings. Breakfast was poor: e.g. the "fresh orange juice" was so diluted the orange was difficult to taste.

wonderful advice and service from owner and family

Posted Jun 3, 2014
This hotel is very comfortable, situated in heart of Lucca and with very considerate owner (fluent in several languages) and his family. All queries were answered and hotel facilities placed at my disposal - printing boarding passes, organising taxis, avoiding train / bus strikes etc. Can heartily recommend.

Wonderful Hotel, wonderful staff!

Posted May 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel was beautiful, sort of baroque, a tinge faded, which made it more comfortable. Staff was amazingly charming & helpful, very accommodating. Lucca is a fascinating town & the Palazzo Alexander is the perfect place to stay to feel the flavor of the city.

Excellent hotel exceptionally helpful management

Posted May 8, 2014
Cons: Like any city centre hotel it was a bit noisy at times, and attractive to fellow Italians who like to hold noisy conversations at 3.0 am. But no probs
This is a well located hotel within the walls of Lucca so accessible to all the sights and restaurants? We were made to feel very welcome, and the owner gave a number of very useful tips on where to eat what to see. Will definitely return and would recommend this reasonably priced hotel to anyone
