We found this place having arrived at the train station and visiting the tourist office. For Euro 65 a night we were worried but it was wonderful. The Alla Doce Vita is situated at the end of the main shopping district within the walls. The house is old, but clean and very 'Italian', basic but quite confortable and in such...

I think we had unreasonably high expectations of the Alla Dolce Vita, given that we only paid 65 euros a night for a double room. However, it featured in an article in the Telegraph travel supplement, so we expected it to be good. It was not. The accommodation is dingy, shabby, basic and noisy, but we did have clean white...

this is an excellent value place to stay, convenient to the anfiteatro, main shopping and all other beautiful sights in Lucca. The owner was very helpful with maps, information on where to eat, and general advise. The room was simply decorated but good and clean. All the bedding was immaculately clean and new looking. the en suite shower room was...

Just spent 5 days in Lucca staying at Alla Dolce Vita. After reading the reviews shortly before leaving we were prepared for the worst but pleasantly surprised. They had certainly used the bleach as all was very clean! Room was large, bed comfortable, had to stand on a chair to hang things in wardrobe! Large bathroom with bath and shower...

We stayed for 2 nights in a nice room at the front, with high ceiling and high windows looking out on the terrace/street. Bathroom was fine. Bed was not really firm, but for 2 nights it’s o.k. Price is good (we payed 130 euro for 2 nights). I would not have wanted the room near the kitchen though (who knows...

Good location. Friendly brothers, who we only saw once on our stay. No-one cleans your room during your stay. Really felt like buying a bottle of bleach as there was black mould growing up the wall around the bath and the toilet was non too savoury. It was in need of a little t.l.c. and a good scrub. Bed was...

The four of us stayed in the large room...One queen and two twin beds, with a bathroom and access to the kitchen. The room was perfect for September, as it wasn't too hot with the light breezes from the window at night. Also, very clean and the location was great! The room is on the second floor of the building,...

Alla Dolce Vita was exactly what we expected for size and overall appearance. David, the innkeeper, met us on the street upon our arrival to guide us to the inn as it is tucked up the street from the busy shopping area. The room, for 4 of us, was what we expected, except for the wish for a fan or...
