My husband and I had an INCREDIBLE TRIP in Italy!! Thanks to Kathy from Beach Bum, we had the opportunity of visiting Florence! It was very affordable and the transfer and hotel accommodation were fantastic! It made our trip so easy and stress-free!! Thanks for helping to make our our anniversary trip unforgettable! 5 starts in my book!"
"Pleasant stay, and nice rooms"
Spent 3 nights with wife at the hotel. Clean, well designed room and washroom. Large, comfortable bed, large desk, and plenty of closet space with sufficient cloth hangers (which is something that is usually woefully inadequate in Italian hotels). The only issue we had was a very tiny glass shower - it's probably 450mmx450mm square - with moving glass walls. Looks rather sexy, but it is not large enough, Otherwise, nice room. Very good breakfasts with lots of choices for food. Good location as well.
"Excellent location and great service"
Perfectly positioned for coming into Florence by car from the South, as just before the restricted area- valet parking. Everything works well, pleasant rooftop for light lunches (and small pool, did not use). Outstanding concierge-Michele Paonessa- who will resolve any problem with style! Breakfast well organised. Room fine, not spectacularly so (a little small) but right on target for this price range. Lets you concentrate on having a good time and leaving the crowds behind whenever you want.
"Wonderful Hotel! Note the location!"
We had a great stay at the Hotel Plaza Lucchesi. The hotel itself is absolutely gorgeous. A wonderful 360 view from the roof, and a cute pool that we took advantage of when we needed a rest from sightseeing. Staff was super helpful, provided a turndown service. Brought us room service which we enjoyed as well. The AC was awesome, which is important to us! Keep in mind a few things. They only provide shampoo, no conditioner. This was something we noticed in northern Italy! Also the location. While it's gorgeous and is right on the river, it's not necessarily close to the train station. We took a cab to the station when we left - walking through the heat with your luggage isn't very enjoyable. And for the rest of the trip, while the walking didn't hurt us, we were much more apt to stay around our hotel rather than go exploring. If you're looking to step right into the action from your hotel, I wouldn't recommend this one based solely on location.
"Memorable stay "
Spent 3 nights at the Lucchesi at the start of my 3 week honeymoon in Italy and it certainly was the perfect start. Hotel is ideally placed on the edge of the river Arno and walking distance from all the main attractions of Florence. The rooms are finished to a high standard and the interior of the hotel is particular beautiful with the Jewell of the crown being the rooftop pool bar where me and my wife spent each evening sipping cocktails and looking over the spectacular Florence sky line. Staff were extremely kind and friendly and the breakfast selection was local, fresh and tasty. Certainly would come again.
