Maybe we were unlucky with our room after reading the other reviews but we weren't allowed to switch rooms which cost us a few nights bad sleep from people walking around upstairs all hours and annoyingly having our bed next to the breakfast area. It sounded like they were in our room so very unrelaxing. Location perfect though.

I booked this place on line, and must have missed the part where you need to phone the reception when you arrive to be let in. I wasn't carrying a cell phone, so it was quite frustrating, specially as the passer's by that I asked for help just rudely ignored me. Eventually a more friendly gentleman on a bike stopped,...

Hotel placed in the old center of Lucca, behind the wall. So, you can have a walk to the center anytime. It's in very old building on 2nd floor. It has big living room, here you have a breakfast and some suites. Every suite has its personal name. Suites are large as for the old Italian building. Very nice bathroom....

This was surely the most comfortable place we stayed on our 13-night Tuscan road trip, where our hosts were most warm and attentive. The locked gate-secured parking is close and convenient. A wide range of art works and beautiful artifacts adorn each room. Central location.

Nice B&B located in the old city, short walk to all shops, restaurants and the Lucca wall with tasty breakfast and free secure parking right next door. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only problem if you aren't very mobile is the two full flights of stairs to get to the B&B, could be a major problem if you don't know...

Make sure you book their beautiful large apartment with high ceilings. Lots of details and warm Tuscan colors. Sleep under the old rafters and feel the history! Also the best breakfast buffet on our Italian car trip.

Lucca is a fabulous city to spend time relaxing from the vibrant life in Tuscany. We had a great room at BB large with seating areas you can also use the breakfast area.

When we arrived we were taken to the "new" Villa Gemma di Elena, located just at the rear of the car park, and wow! The villa has 5 rooms, all lovely (I had a look) but the best has to be the Suite la Mura...which we stayed on for 4 nights. A huge, bright, freshly painted and refurbished room with...
