Our business opened in 1921, thanks to the insight of Vittorio Melecchi: at first the facility was a “locanda” (an inn) and included a diner, a lodging house and stables. Historically the Hotel Melecchi is part of an area of Lucca dedicated to guest reception: in fact, the hotel is located in a street where there are many other hosting infrastructures.
Passion, professionality and dedication have been passed on to the next generations. First to nonna Elsa (Vittorio’s daughter) and to her son Marino, then (in 2001) Rossella (Marino’s wife) and their firstborn Giovanni took over.
In 2001 the Hotel was deeply renovated: since then, the facility has been dedicated to hosting and serving appetizing breakfasts, in an environment that blends antique elements with contemporary touches, close to Lucca’s city centre.
The Hotel Melecchi has been a family-owned business for a century.
Our philosophy is authentic, precisely because a real family will be welcoming you in the facility: we want you to feel at home here!
