This was our second visit to Lucca, the first time we stayed at a hotel within the old city walls. We tried rebooking but it was already sold out so we reluctantly expanded our search to outside the center. We were very glad that we did, the Principe Calaf is a very special place. It is located within a short... More

This was one of our best B&B stays in Italy. Large home cooked breakfast, very helpful host, free onsite parking, large clean room and comfy bed and a great location. What more could you ask for! We were also given recommendations for restaurants and the opera recital at a church (which we really enjoyed). We enjoyed Lucca but watch out... More

After travelling Italy for a few weeks, we came to Principe Calef. The best stay we had in Italy. The host Maria is extremely sweet and helpful for anything you need. Breakfast is so filling we never had a chance to eat lunch out. Rooms are very large with lots of old world character. Located just outside the city walls,... More

Maria and Sam were the best hosts we had in Italy. They arranged for a cab to collect me from train station, and the exemplary service continued from there. The rooms were very comfortable, and breakfast was great. One morning on her way to work Sam went out of her way to get a local pastry for me to sample.... More

Excellent service by both workers. They are charming and close to the client. Love animals and allow them to stay. Classic decoration and all reformed rooms. Breakfast is complete and diverse. Very recommended. Best regards!

A perfect place to make your home in Lucca. Maria and her staff made our stay very pleasant, providing clean, comfortable accommodations in a lovely villa. With Maria's recommendations, we were able to take advantage of out of the way places which made our trip to this interesting city that much more enjoyable. Maria went that extra mile in taking...

Our experinece with Maria and her staff was excellent! They were very helpful throughout our stay and all the contacts we had before our stay. They even arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport at a reasonable price. The breakfast was decent and sleep quality good. However, we did not stay at Principe Calaf itself (don't know...

Ok, good location just outside city walls and easy to find. Maria and staff very friendly to us on arrival and hurriedly finished cleaning our room so we could move in. We were on the third floor and as there is no lift the staff whisked our suitcases away and took them to our room. Room was a reasonable size... More

We stayed at Principe Calaf in September and found it lived up to previous reviews. Maria & Samantha were extremely helpful in every way. The breakfast was of a high quality and plentiful, the bedroom very clean & comfortable. Having car parking was a big plus as was the free use of bicycles to explore Lucca. I would recommend this...
