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

The place needs a refresh. The breakfast is a bit poor. The fan in the bathroom is very noisy too and you get all the rumors from the street early in the morning. It's ok for one night only but no more than that.

Stayed two wonderful nights at Gemma di Elena in Lucca. While it's not terribly close to the train station, the town is small and we were able to walk with two large suitcases. It is very close to everything else. Jan, the manager, welcomed us warmly and helped us up the two flights of stairs to his cozy little hideaway.... More

From an idea born by chance 14 years ago we opened the B&B La gemma di Elena, combining a name that could preserve the history of the apartment, the name Gemma , such as precious stone and disciple of Blessed Elena war. Today, the B&B La gemma di Elena offers 6 rooms with private bathroom. The rooms are spacious, bright and decorated in the original tuscan style.
