"Wonderful hotel a bit outside of the Old Town" Villa Romantica Tip by arnesk

Villa Romantica, Lucca: 235 reviews and 1 photos

A unique hotel. It is really a big, grandious house more than a hotel. I guess it just has 4 or 5 rooms, so you are well taken care of.

The rooms are big, it is an old and wonderful feeling in the hotel. The breakfast was good, especially a chocolate-strawberry-dessert for breakfast that is the best dessert I have ever eaten at a hotel.

You can borrow bikes for free, but unfortunately you will need it. Because the hotel is a bit outside of the real reason of coming to Lucca - the old town. It is about 15 minutes walk, and there is no good public transport. With with a bike it is OK.

I think the hotel mostly has guests from 40-50 years or up. The owner raised his eyebrow when we told him we were going to a consert, and told us we had to be quiet when we returned.

Unique Qualities: Swimming-pool in the garden.

Fantastic chocolate-strawberry-dessert for breakfast.
