Plaza Hotel Lucchesi

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

From the minute we walked into the hotel until the time of checkout, we had a great experience. The views from the 4th floor pool area are stunning. The location was very convenient to walking to every attraction without being in the busy center of town.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night on an overnight trip to Florence. The facilities were beautiful, clean and updated! The hotel is conveniently located near the city center and major sites are within walking distances! However, there was construction being done to the hotel that we were not notified of that happened overnight as well as cleaning of the sewers whose smell really penetrated our room. Additionally, the hotel, although apologetic and more than made up for it, assigned our room to another couple. As we were sleeping, another couple used the key to open our room and walked in. The mistake was clarified and the hotel immensely apologized, but still something we would keep in mind if we were to return.

We had a fantastic stay at the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi. The hotel was spaceious, elegant, and about a 10 minute walk to the center of the tourism. We were upgraded to a room overlooking the river, which was nice. There is a rooftop bar and pool which have great views of Florence. We highly recommend this hotel if you want something nice and off to the side.

Elegant, quiet with a personal touch. Stayed here for our honeymoon. The breakfast buffet was outstanding! The rooms were clean and bed very comfortable. Loved the big bathroom but shower stalls don't close properly so it's tricky to not flood the bathroom. Otherwise excellent hotel.

The hotel staff were so pleasant and nice to us. We told them it was our honeymoon and they upgraded us to a nicer larger room with a balcony overlooking the river. The room was very clean and nice and the staff were very quick and pleasant for all our needs! We would recommend it to all our our friends and definitely would return to this hotel on our next stay in Florence.

We stayed at a room with two twin beds and sofa bed. The room was large enough for 3 adults. I was looking forward to the view from the room window as referred in the hotel description, but the view was not that good and more or less a view of the wall and a little bit of roof of the building next door.The view from the roof terrace was great. Very close to Uffizzi. Overall, a satisfactory experience. Recommended to triparty travelers.

Honestly could be one of my favorite places to stay in Florence. Hotel location is right on the water just outside the center but not by much walking distance to almost anywhere. Hotel seems to have gone through a major renovation recently roof top terrace with pool is a great view of the city with nice ambience. The gift shop is very well curated with all local crafts from florence. I'm in florence several times a year and plan to make this my hotel. Highly recommended for both business stay or romantic getaway.

Beautiful roof top bar --great entertainment Rooms were beautiful--and spacious

The staff were incredibly attentive and helpful. The breakfast buffet was the best I have ever eaten at. The view from the food too pool bar was amazing. Only negative was we found the bed to be very hard, other than that 5 stars from us

The people were great and the breakfast tremendous. The roof top view was great - too cool to use the pool. The one comment was there was no iron available.

The hotel was very charming though not as large as a it appeared from the web information. This was a bonus. The staff was courteous and helpful, but perhaps a little cold. Room was well appointed and included a flat screen TV and an "American" sized bathroom. The included breakfast had everything and was very good. Within walking distance of everything if you're prepared to walk 10-25min.

I enjoyed this hotel first for its location. It is next to the river a great view as you exit the hotel. The staff was friendly. They were reserved and professional. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The hotel is not new so walls or roofs may seem antiques but makes it part of the experience. I think I got my money's worth.

This is a lovely, quiet hotel within walking distance of most of the sights of Florence. The staff was extremely accomodating and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Although well worn and slightly dated, in my opnion the Lucchesi is kept clean and well maintained.Our room overlooked the Arno River, at the Ponte alle Grazie (one of the many bridges that cross the Arno river). The view and the hotel's location help make up for it's physical short comings. I would not have enjoyed the stay had I been in a room without the view. The large room was comfortable and clean but lacked the ammenites of a truly fine hotel. A complimentary buffet breakfast in the hotel dining room was included. At the time of our stay the free wi-fi was very slow and had very little range inside the hotel, making it barely useable and frustrating. The Hotel's location makes for easy walking to most of the city's sights and some fantatic restaurants. The Hotel's staff is exceptional!! Courteous, warm, helpful and friendly. The concierge staff was fantastic, both [...] went above and beyond! [...] at the front desk was a gem!

It was our first experience in Italy and Plaza Hotel Lucchesi provided us with a superb expierence! The staff was available at all times during the day to help us with traveling tips and they even cancelled a car rental for us! In addition, they provide a full buffet breakfast that satisfied every member of my family, including my twelve year old daughter! I highly recommend this hotel!
