I stay the room in June, 2013. The hotel is not far from the train station. The room we stay can accommendate three people and the space of the bathroom is big ( the odor is good-smelling). I like the interior design at the reception (Orchids there). The breakfast is also good. The host and hostess are both nice people.... More

We arrived in Lucca by car and discovered that the Hertz office was as far across Lucca from our hotel as it could be. After a bit of a trudge (and after asking directions from a lovely nun who actually escorted us all the way to the hotel), we arrived at the Il Seminario. What a wonderful, warm welcome we... More

We came to Il Seminario on the last night of our honeymoon, after staying on the Riviera in a 5* hotel. To be honest, I think the service we received at Il Seminario was so much better than any other. On arrival, our congenial host Paolo took his time to help us unload, explain the (free) parking system and assure... More

Beautiful B&B located in Lucca's city center. Rooms are large and clean. Nice and helpful personnel. Free wi-fi in the rooms. Rich breakfast. A little bit too expensive. Private parking is available for a fee.

YEverything that has been written before about this place is true. It is faultless. Paolo is a sensational host and nothing is any trouble. The building is beautiful.and is well maintained and decorated. Our triple rooms were spacious and everyone loved the showers! Parking was in a secured courtyard right near the B&B. Our breakfast was good as were the... More

We stayed with friends for 3 nights at this beautiful B&B. The suite we booked was perfect, very clean, beautiful and spacious. I stay in many (expensive) hotels worldwide and I seldom have had a room like this! More important is the service, the girls who manage this B&B deserve a great compliment !!

My wife and I stayed here for three nights. Our room was in the attic, so We are glad we weren't any older, getting up those stairs. The breakfast was ok for a Euro type breaky. The staff were friendly and helpfull. We hired cycles for one full day in which we must have traversed every street within the walls.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Il Seminario. It was very easy to walk there with our luggage from the train station. They were very welcoming at check in and helped us navigate around, with restaurant recommendations and where to rent bikes. The rooms we had were quiet and comfortable. I appreciated a few days of not having to worry about... More

This was our second stay at Il Seminario but this time with grown up son and daughter. Again, we did a tour of Tuscany staying at several B & B's and had told them that this was a great place to stay! We were not disappointed. Even better this year the provision of tea and coffee available at any time... More

We recently spent five nights in this very comfortable bed and breakfast hotel - very close to and therefore convenient for the Puccini Festival concerts. The staff were very attentive, helpful and worked hard to ensure our complete satisfaction. I have no hesitation in giving Il Seminario a strong recommendation with our thanks to all at the hotel for the... More
