Thanks to Paolo & staff for a wonderful stay. Great friendly service; comfortable rooms which were clean & changed each day. The continental breakfasts were terrific and they make the best caffe lattés! Staying inside the Lucca walls at this B&B was a highlight - thank you!

Stayed 5 nights in June and we were very happy with Il Seminario. The staff are outstanding and generous with their time and local information. Our room was clean, bed very comfortable with aircon and shutters for light and heat control. There was a safe and wifi was great. Breakfast outside in the hedged gazebo area was very pleasant (or...

We stayed 3 nights in the family suit on the top floor. A very spacious room with a little kitchenette and bar fridge. Newly renovated and the best wifi we've had in Italy! The breakfast is simple and the coffee is excellent. Irene checked us in and was friendly, helpful with Restaurant recommendations and spoke superb English. I don't expect... More

Stayed one night specifically to go to see Paolo Nutini in the Lucca Summer Music Festival. Couldn't have been better for what we needed but also an ideal location for visiting Lucca. Great location inside the city walls with the bonus of including parking. The rooms were very clean and comfortable & air conditioned (very welcome during an Italian heatwave!).... More

A very lovely place in very good location around quiet residential area, near the medieval walls, 5 minute walk to city centre. I had a lovely room facing the street but it was quiet – no noises after 10:30pm. Extremely pleasant, helpful and attentive staff, especially Irene, who runs the reception. Pantry is open for guests to get coffee/tea. Their... More

The first thing we liked about Il Siminario was its great location in a quiet part of town just inside the wall of the historic area. We barely had to drive on the small streets to get to the hotel where we parked in their private parking area behind the hotel. We received a warm welcome from Irene and were... More

We stayed there for two nights and all I can say - perfect. Location is outstanding - just inside town wall and a 5 minute walk from the centre. (It's nice to have or rent bicycle). Bonus is also free parking by the B&B. Room (suite) was spacies, very clean, with aircondition. Breakfast was sweet and savory, with fresh fruit,... More

This B&B is located just inside the walls of Lucca. We were greeted by Paulo, who was welcoming, friendly and very helpful in helping us plan our short visit here. The room was very comfortable and clean. Wifi worked well and the breakfast was nice. Couldn't ask for more really.

We spent a couple of nights in Lucca at the Il Seminario. Although this is probably an old building which used to house the seminarians it is now a newly refurbished, pleasant and clean B&B. The room's décor is typical Tuscan with heavy furniture and a nice ensuite. The only issue I had was that once we had our towels... More

We stayed in the Puccini room in Il Seminario B & B in Lucca for four nights in May 2015 and thought it was wonderful. Our room was on the ground floor, very large, immaculately clean, very comfortable, and it looked out onto a lovely garden area. Breakfast was very pleasant with delicious fresh fruit. Il Seminario is very well... More
