The Reception Staff were excellent. We thought the room was a bit on the small size - not much room to walk around the bed / end of bed for two people with suitcases but it was functional for our stay. Loved the free bike hire - this is a great way to see Lucca. Left luggage service was also a great service. we would have liked to see a kettle in the room with a tea & coffee service.

We had booked a comfort room which was not to our preference plus the bed lighting was inadequate. We were upgraded to an executive room at no extra charge. This room was very nice. The staff were excellent in every way, the room and public areas were spotless and the choice of food at breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel was just right as it offers free onsite parking ( a big bonus in Lucca) and is outside of the city walls, no more than a leasurely 10 minute walk into the walled city of Lucca. Our stay was for 6 nights and made more enjoyable as we visited other areas in Tuscany in our hire car and on returning to the hotel it was lovely to be able to park with ease. Value for money? Yes.

The hotel was in general very good, with a reasonable breakfast, well presented. However, our room (70) was very noisy, being above the hotel's external bar, and the air conditioning in the room was inadequate and very noisy. The hotel's restaurant was excellent, with superb food and very good service. Worth a detour!

We were very happy with our stay at Albergo Celide and would choose to stay there again. The hotel has the advantage of a car park and while being outside the city walls is close to one of the gates to the city. We really appreciated the airconditioning with temperatures outside of 36 degrees C. All the staff were very helpful. The bar restaurant adjoining the hotel provided great food. We've been to Lucca about three times before this visit, but not stayed at Albergo Celide before, but hope to return.

The hotel was ideally situated just outside the city walls - less than 5 minute walk. As it wasn't inside the walls the parking was free. It was on a busy road but we didn't hear any traffic noise in our room. We had a room with a "french bed" which turned out to be an ordinary double bed (4ft 6 in wide) and was perfectly adequate and comfortable. We borrowed bikes from the hotel to cycle around the city walls which was fun but was quite surprised to learn there was a charge for them. Breakfast was fine. If we came to Lucca again I would stay at this hotel again. It was easy to get to Pisa airport from here for an early morning flight.

This is a good business hotel. We were tourists and the map provided did not have the correct information about the tourist offices, which made finding our way around difficult. The bedrooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast is expensive but worth it if you want a lot - we just like a continental breakfast, so not worth the price for us.

I stayed at five different hotels during my vacation this year in Bologna, Perugia, Siena, and Lucca, and this hotel was by far better than any of the others. It is right outside of the city wall with easy access to the city center. It's easy to reach by car, but I am not sure how close it is to a bus station. I would recommend the facility to everyone. The only "negative" is the restaurant that is attached to the hotel was not open in November. This is hardly a negative though, because there are so many different places to eat in Lucca. The hotel breakfast was more than adequate. Finally, a daytrip to Pisa was very managable, and I would recommend staying in Lucca as opposed to finding a hotel in Pisa. I would definitely return.

I have been twice to this hotel. Staff are very helpful, rooms and bathrooms are nice and very clean. Only weakeness is that the rooms are a bit on a smallish size. Instead, a very big plus for me is the location, just ouside the town walls: it is very easy to reach by car and you can park without any problems in the private car park. At the same time, the town centre is just 5 minutes on foot. Considering the very good price I would highly recommend it.

The staff upon arrival were great, and the young man attending the desk was very helpful, as well as the woman in the mornings. We opted to stay one additional night, and only had a choice of a very crampped room in the basement which we saw and accepted. Upon arriving back after a day in Lucca, the young man at the desk said there was a better room available, and we were happy to change. A woman came out from behind the desk and scolded him, and said we could not have the room. That was the only bad experience, that we thought was tacky and un-professional.

We enjoyed the Albergo Cellide so much, we intend to return next year, and recommend it highly to anyone traveling to Lucca. The outside may not look like much, but the inside exceeded our expectations. The rooms, by design, are intentionally not spacious. They are instead extremely functional for their size and just gorgeous. The bathrooms are equally beautiful and functional. The hotel staff speak English quite well and are EXTREMELY helpful. The location is perfect -- just outside the Porta Elisa. The one and only negative to this hotel is that the internet is extremely slow, and tends to bounce you out. Because the hotel charges for the use of the computer (most other hotels we stayed at did not) the slowness of the computer was disappointing. Other than that, our stay was PERFECT.

It was hot during our stay. We made the mistake of walking from the station. Bad idea. Too far, no sidewalks. It was early afternoon, room wasn't ready. They were apologetic offered us drinks, comfortable cool place to sit. Our room was tiny, compact like something you might get on a cruise ship. Twin beds. Carpet badly stained. The airconditioner was marginal, took four or five hours to get the room to mid to low 70's. It was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on the trip (outside of a luxury resort on the med) and the worst facilities. We will go back to Lucca, but next time find a place inside the walls. You go all the way there, why not bathe in the charm.

I would recommend the hotel as a very good base for visiting Lucca and the surrounding area which is very beautiful.The hotel is close to the railway station (less than 10 mins walk)and this made travel to Pisa, Florence and Viarregio very easy, trains are frequent and very reliable. The hotel was very clean, quiet and the staff friendly. We really enjoyed our holiday but I wouldnt bring kids as I think this type of holiday, where you do a lot of sightseeing is more suited to adults only. However, to keep the kids happy you could combine the sightseeing with a few trips to the nearby beach at Viarregio.

We stayed at the Celide for 3 nights Sept.30th to Oct.02. The staff was very pleasant and always accomadating, but the room that we had #72 was terrible. We heard the people above us (talking and walking) outside traffic, people talking outside early in the morning and people working outside and inside. Also,the noise level in the halls were terrible. You could hear talking, walking up and down the stairs and when they closed their doors, you heard the slamming. We were also disappointed with the tub and no shower curtain. When we took a shower the water went all over the tile floor.

We had a thoroughly wonderful time in this hotel. The staff was friendly, attentive and informative. The rooms were stylishly designed with a large bathroom. The breakfast was exceptional. Excellent location - close to the city but away from the noise. We would highly recommend the hotel and looking forward to go back again.

Welcoming and service minded staff. Easy to communcate with them in English, which in general is difiicult in Italy. The hotel was recently renovated, and it is placed just outside the old city walls. Great that it is possible to borrow bikes from the hotel. In general, it is a very nice hotel in a wonderful town.

Good service & room. A little expensive, but then in Lucca you expect it.

This is a very comfortable hotel located directly across from the historic Lucca city wall. Easy walking access to historic center of Lucca, but also on a main road easy for motorists to find. Walking distance to train if not carrying luggage. Easy taxi access. Most rooms quiet in back of hotel with very good soundproofing, but a few front on street overlooking walls. Classy modern rooms. Good breakfast buffet. Only drawback for leisure traveler is lack of outdoor seating.

This hotel was highly recommended by a friend & co-worker who visits Lucca routinely. I was very satisfied with the recommendation & would most definitely suggest Hotel Celide to others visiting Lucca! The staff was very accommodating & the room was one of the best I've stayed in when visiting Europe (which I do every year.) Thank you!
