Elisabeth is such a lovely, friendly host... very welcoming and full of information! Good location within the walls but not too far from station. Good wifi signal and breakfast. My room was large, with attached bathroom, and also quiet. Excellent value for money.

The host, Elisabeth was really nice and helpful. Our stay was sufficiently enjoyable, and I don't regret staying there. However, I don't think we would stay here again. While one room was very nice and spacious, the other was quite cramped and not very light. The bathroom was outside both of the rooms and was small with a funky door... More

Here at B&B Le Violette we receive wonderful guests. People from all around the world who are delightful and happy to stay at a Bed and Breakfast in the city center, near the train station with perfect price quality relation. Every now and then we receive guests such as the ones who posted the review "Nice, but that's all" These... More

I recommend Le Violette! Charming and clean place, perfect to visit Lucca and its many artistic and culinary attractions. Good location just inside the walls and very close to the train station. Elisabeth really makes the difference with her politeness and smile, she's helpful and kind so I felt almost at home.

The BnB was two long stairs cases above ground level, the street noise a problem late into the evening and early morning hours, breakfast was a bare minimum, air conditioning though advertised was sketchy(a portable unit which required the window to stay open??), so adequate was the best I can say for the Violette. Long distance parking was a problem... More

Just returned from an Italian vacation and stayed 3 nights with Elisabeth at Le Violette and couldn't have been more pleased. The room was huge by Italian standards with a private bathroom which was also huge. Lots of room to relax and spread out and the shower was very good. The breakfast is very good by Italian standards and varied... More

Stayed 5 nights in corner room. Establishment in nothing fantastic internally, have to walk up 2 flights of stairs (quite common in a place like Lucca). Room was generous in size, bathroom is tight but useable. I believe there are only 5 rooms of which 2 have private bathrooms. Being on the corner of a thoroughfare into the city you... More

Elisabeth is a wonderful host, she speaks perfect English and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and very clean with comfy beds. The bathroom was big and the shower worked very well. The breakfast was varied and plentiful with good coffee. A very good place to stay within the city walls. It can be a bit noisy... More

This gave me a very homey feeling.... The host is very friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and comfortable. We stayed at Lucca for one night and had a good rest before moving to Florence. I liked this B&B very much. The location is very good, especially if you carry a lot of luggage. Because this is quite close... More
