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

Second visit to Lucca, and this time we stayed within the walls. Good idea especially as this B&B has off street parking. Lucca was as great as ever but this is about the B&B. Guinigi Suite on the top floor. Big but maybe slightly dark, fully fitted (including a kitchen!) Two roof lights, openable and with blinds, ensure ventilation in... More

We stayed 7 nights in Lucca at Il Seminario. This is very conveniently located within the walls of this interesting city. It is very clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts were were very too good with many choices. Parking was made available for us as well. We'd stay here again if we come back to Lucca.
