Pros: It was easy to find with the signage once we knew the street from using Google maps. We stayed in the Pablo room, my friend and I slept in separate beds instead of the one large one, and the twin bed was small but comfortable from what my friend said. The area was very quaint and decorated nice, with... More

It was really good to be there, more heating would be helpful, breakfaat and service was very good, parking facility is excellent! The price and the service was proportional, so I recommend it to everyone, who likes Toscana and wants to be in the heart of Lucca!

Pefect location, fascinating building, warm welcome. Reasonable breakfast. Very good value for money. Not for those who have problems with stairs,as it is up a fairly steep flight of stairs or who are fussy about decor. The shower was excellent, making ineresting use of the available space. There is no air-con and as it was humid we had to sleep... More

It was a lovely wee place to stay in the heart of Lucca. I arrived late and this was no problem - after a long journey from Geneva I was hot and tired and it was a little haven. It was really clean. The staff were lovely and helpful and the location was just great. I would love to come... More

We arrived late in Lucca, rang the door bell the to B&B and a very nice lady opened the door, buzzed the parking door open too (yes, there is parking available). We met her at the gate and she walked us to our room for the night. It was an apartment!!! We were so excited, and it was simply gorgeous,... More

Located in the centro storico La Gemma di Elena is excellent value. It's clean with plenty of hot water and a generous and varied breakfast choice. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to stay there.

We stayed in a very big apartment with full facilities. It is adjacent to the centre activities and yet was nice and quiet. We found the people to be very efficient and friendly in making the booking etc. If you are not in a car they offer collection from Pisa Airport for €40 one way which makes arrival painless. If...

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
