The location is great very near to everything- it has car parking for an extra cost- if coming by car traffic is a nightmare with lots of roads pedestrianized, the sign for La Gemma is quite difficult to spot- its just BEFORE the sign for the car park ! anyway once found its lovely and quirky-huge rooms with everything you...

The location of the B&B is perfect - in a quiet street, just a stone's throw from the main attractions in the historic centre. However, the street itself is about 10 minutes away from the spots of 'maximum tourist concentration', so it's quiet and relaxing at night. The B&B is converted from a former large apartment in a historic building,... More

We ended up staying here through the tourist centre by the train station. We weren't really sure how long we'd stay in Lucca so we booked one night (booked a second night shortly after). My wife and I had backpacks so we walked the 15-minute trek from the train station to the B&B. We later found a quicker route. The... More

What a really lovely place to stay in Lucca . It is situated in the walls close to the Madonna stellario ( a useful landmark after a few glasses of vino). We seemed to get lost a fair bit and you will see people with maps and puzzled looks a lot in Lucca. We stayed in a huge room ,... More

Travelling with a friend to this area, we were searching for twin beds with an en suite, proved to be very challenging. La Gemma was advertised on the booking web site as offering this at a very reasonable price. However, on viewing the web site after booking, I noted that there were no photos of twin beds, so emailed direct.... More

A first floor B & B, very much reminiscent of the 1960s - lots of candles, seersucker & trinkets. Breakfast was OK, though the coffee was poor. An interesting experience, probably not one that I'd repeat again

this place is a must for a great home from home stay... prob best nights sleep in our week long trip! we stayed in an annex next door so were in a separate flat with kitchen - it was great! rooms were all really tidy and clean and location was really central within the city walls.

What a charming place. Pretty room and all you need in it. Best breakfast we have had in Italy for sure, and very helpful and kind hosts. Very good position, close to the centre of town but just out of it enough to be quieter. A bit of street noise but part of the atmosphere so did not worry us.... More

Everything about this B&B is good, as long as you don't get the smallest room as I did. If possible, go for the en suite rooms as they are worth the extra cash for more space and a more comfortable night's sleep as the room will be more airy. There is no air conditioning but there are fans in each... More
