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

A last minute accommodation booking in Lucca that ended up being a lovely stay. Staff are super friendly and helpful (thanks Irene)! Rooms are basic yet cozy. Breakfast is nicely displayed with a number of fruit, pastry and sandwich options. I wasn't able to stay but took some treats for the road. The B&B is nicely located and is about... More

Located just inside the walls, this small family run hotel was a very good location to explore Lucca for two days. The rooms were comfortable, breakfast above average and during nice weather breakfast was outside in the garden. It was a short walk to the historic centre. Pallo was extremely helpful in recommending various activiies and restaurants and all his... More

Clean and comfortable. Close to all the shops and restaurants. Lucca is very pretty and we loved walking around and meeting the locals. Liked how independent we were at the B&B. If you want more attention a hotel is maybe for you. The breakfast was perfect. Thank you Irene for your hospitality.

First visit to Lucca and were fortunate to discover this gem of a bed & breakfast. The property is ideally located within close proximity to the wall and all the other delights of this beautiful Tuscan city. Our suite was spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. Breakfast was good with a selection of fresh fruit, cereal, pastries and other items. There... More
