Medieval guesthouse outside of central LuccaPosted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: Charming old features Breakfast in the courtyard Friendly owner Large room/suite
Cons: We struggled initially to find the guesthouse as the full street name was not provided on the booking confirmation. Otherwise, everything was great!
Location: We would recommend driving to this guesthouse, as it is a couple of miles from the train station. There is free parking directly outside.
Corte dei Folletti is a small charming guesthouse about 2 miles outside of central Lucca. We stayed in a ground floor suite which opened out into a private courtyard with a small pond. The building has retained many of the old features, which is lovely as it has a lot of character. We had breakfast outside in the morning which was very nice. Wi-fi was fine. We would advise that if you are likely to arrive after 8pm, you should ring for a door code to get in as the owner does not stay on the premises.

Artistically and uniquely decorated hotelPosted Sep 1, 2014
Pros: Fairy-tale theme, beautiful decorations with attention to detail
Cons: Check-in service, location
Location: Long walk but short taxi ride away from the train station and city center of Lucca, no restaurants nearby but there is a cute gelato/chocolate shop
This place was a lot farther from the train station than we had expected. Since we normally don't mind walking at all, we went on foot with our luggage from the train station, but in the hot sun after an exhausting day of travel and all our luggage... that was a mistake! When my husband got there to check in, there was no one at the reception, and no one was answering the number it said to call, even though we were there around 2 or 3. It took awhile, but when we finally got in, it was a really cute place, just like in the pictures online. The only thing I didn't like was that some of the little dwarfs looked kind of creepy at night, and the fairies (even in the rooms) were all painted topless, so if you have kids you might keep that in mind. There's also almost nothing to do or eat in the area, so we ended up walking all the way back to Lucca (maybe a 30 min walk but much easier with no luggage). Overall the stay was okay... we took a taxi back to the train station and it was a much better decision... only cost about 10 Euro and we were much happier :)

A great choice for usPosted May 21, 2014 on Hotels
When we decided to include a night in Lucca on our way back to Rome, I had to choose between a so-so place within the walls or something better rated outside the walls in order to stay in our budget. I picked this place and boy, was it worth it. We walked from the train station to the hotel, pulling our carry-ons; it did take 35 minutes or so. But the minute my campanion saw the inside of this place, with the comical figures painted on the walls, she was pleased. When we got up to the room and she saw the draped soaking tub in the corner of the room, she was ecstatic. I appreciated the really nice bed and the French balcony that let in the night air! Everything about the room and the hotel was nice, the breakfast was plentiful and tasty, and the host rented us bikes at a discount, although mine could have used some repair work. This place was our best value of the 6 places we stayed in Italy. Some of that may have to do with the fact that Lucca is not as touristy as other places, because our great dinner in town was also cheaper than Rome, Orvieto, Florence or Cinque Terre. When we left we got on the #17 bus across the street (tickets in the tobacco shop) and it took us right to the train station.

Un tuffo di magiaPosted Jul 30, 2015
Pros: La particolarità dell'ambiente, con un mondo di folletti dipinti ovunque ti fa tornare bambino, un'atmosfera magica che lo rende unico e particolare
Location: Con una piacevole passeggiata si raggiungono le mura della citta di Lucca. Volendo l'hotel offre anche un servizio di noleggio bici.
Ambiente curato, confortevole e molto originale che fa sentire subito la tradizione Toscana. Camera pulita, arredata con gusto e curata nei minimi particolari. L'accoglienza e l'ospitalità sono stati eccellenti. La colazione discreta e piacevole in quanto servita in un cortile interno dalla piacevole atmosfera. Da ritornarci sicuramente!

suggestivo hotel a pochi minuti d'auto dalle muraPosted May 11, 2015
Pros: Stanze caratteristiche e ante alle finestre
Location: Dopo aver parcheggiato Lucca si visita noleggiando la bicicletta per tutto il giorno (E15 cad),dall'hotel si può partire per una gita in Garfagnana
L'hotel dista pochi minuti d'auto da Porta Elisa, si trovano parcheggi gratuiti nelle vie laterali (vicino allo stadio). Stanza suggestiva, pulita, un po' rumorosa (letto, vicini), ben oscurata con le ante! Personale disponibile, unico neo la colazione: tutti i dolci sono confezionati...
