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.

My husband and I spent a long weekend in May in Lucca at the Il Seminario. We found the place to be very clean and comfortable with excellent service from the staff. They even had a place to park my car inside the city walls. We were given some great recommendations for restaurants and found them excellent. Would stay there... More

We stayed 3 nights (April 9-12) 2014 at Il Seminario B&B, Lucca. Our room at the attic is spacious, quiet, well-furnished and very clean. Manuella is the most helpful, and friendly person. She helped us carry our luggage upstairs, which we appreciated very much. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choices with fresh bread and pastry laid out every morning. When... More

We spent a week at this B and B over Easter. It really felt like a genuine home because of the friendly staff and well cared for environment. The bed was comfortable and when we asked for extra pillows these were supplied. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and it was always beautifully presented. It was also possible to... More

Quiet, comfortable, spacious, well-maintained B & B with a very helpful staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this location. Within walking distance from the train station and easy to find. Hearty breakfast in pleasant eating area with access to patio in good weather. Quite lovely!

My family rented an apartment managed by the Seminario B&B, it was located on a busy road 100 yeards away from the B&B. The place was ok, with the downside of too much noise, mostly traffic early morning and in the evening - after 6PM generally during our 4 night stay. Overall the staff was kind and accomodative to our... More
