Principe Calaf – a lovely old villa - is well positioned, just outside the old city walls, five minutes walk to the historic quarter. There is secure on-site parking. Our bedrooms were large and airy, well prepared and well serviced during our three-night stay. Breakfast was good, with plenty of fresh fruit, cheese and meats. Coffee available all day and... More

Great place, great value! We have got a freshly refurbished room and the room had everything we needed. The bathroom was clean, modern and very spacious. Very good Italian breakfast. Maria the owner is the most welcoming and warm person I have ever known.

This B&B is located in a 100-year old liberty villino, restructured with taste, at walking distance from the north walls of Lucca. Our room was spotless clean, spacious and well furnished, with a beautiful bathroom. The possibility of parking the car in the garden is a great advantage. Many bikes are available for visiting the city. The staff was very... More

We have recently stayed at Principe Calaf for three nights and can only agree with the comments made by previous guests. Maria and her staff were all extremely helpful (we did not meet her husband) and gave us details of local restaurants and attractions. We had arranged to collect a hire car from the Avis office on the morning we... More

A lovely small hotel with friendly staff who make you feel more than welcome. Its situated on the outskirts of Lucca a 5-10 minute walk into the walled city. With free parking it was a perfect destination for a one night stay. The room was large and clean, my only recommendation was that the increase the size of the shower... More

We stayed in this lovely B&B for 2 nights in July. Maria, the landlady, is very helpfull and very friendly. Rooms are tidy and big, only airco is missing, which is a bit hard in summer time. Breakfast is good and there is a lot available. You can use the fridge for your convenience. The fact that she is offering... More

Superb rooms tastefully decorated. Very helpful and freindly staff Nice breakfast. A real plus is the possibility to visit Lucca by bicycle....really good. Have to admit that they recommended a restaurant that was a disappointment, but then we didn't find any resto that wasn't a dissapointment... Beadroom a little noisy from road traffic But we have no hesitation recommending this... More

We stayed at B&B Principe Calaf for three nights during July 2013 and were very pleased with our choice of this specific B&B. We got a superior room (in the main floor - named Turandot) which was beautifully decorated and personalized with a Turandot opera theme. The room was spotless clean and very spacious and even had a small balcony... More

We booked Principe Calaf (the actual hotel), but as we were touring through Italy our itinerary has changed and we arrived to Lucca earlier then planed. Principe Calaf was full for that night, but Maria (the landlady) was extremely helpful and offered us an apartment just outside of Lucca, I was conscious at the beginning, but the apartment was in...
