We were welcomed by Federico who was super friendly and helped us out not only with check in but also with restaurant, ice cream recommendations and helped us get tickets to Pisa. Our room was a quadruple with a balcony that open to the patio where breakfast was served. The master area of the bedroom was big and comfortable the... More

It was a pleasant surprise this B & B within the walls of Lucca. Quaint and charming. The room was very spacious but the bath was one large step from the bedroom and could be a trip hazard at night. Thank goodness nothing happened to us. You could walk to the rest of the town easily although the next time... More

Location close to the city centre however in a quiet street. The B&B has own parking space (garage) just across the street which is very convenient. The host was friendly, room clean. The rooms are on the first and second floor with narrow staircase - might cause problems in case you have health problem or big luggage.

We stayed here for 2 nights and apart from the helpful, friendly staff I thought it was truly awful! Our room was small and dingy, the bathroom tiny and the shower head had to be removed unless you wanted to be sprayed in the face. The room and bathroom were clean but the whole hotel had a feeling of grubbiness... More

Hello Sarah, just let me answer you back about some of the things you wrote referring to this B&B. This is an antique structure, 15th century old. We are open since 2005 and several times we have restored and painted. Imagine that in 2007, the wall of the Villa Bottini, situated in front of us, collapsed, causing considerable damages to...

Placed in an ideal location: In a quiet area but very close to the centre. Gorgeous bedrooms, good value for money. Jessica on the desk is a fantastic hostess and helped us see and do the best things in Lucca.

Nice and clean room with a good breakfast. Really well located in the city centre and with free parking space if needed (really useful in Lucca if you arrive with your car).

My family and I stayed here for two nights before embarking on a trip to Forte dei Marmi. We were in town for the music festival and had the great pleasure of seeing Tom Petty perform. When choosing our accomodation I had value in mind, not luxury and this place fit the bill. It is very conveniently located inside the... More

We had a Superior Room (No.2) and it was so, despite being very good value. Very large room and very large bathroom; big comfortable bed. Overlooked street so some noise but what do you expect near centre of Lucca - however it was quiet at night. Walking distance to everything. Great Italian sweet breakfast. Charming Jessica (on reception when we... More

Just happened on this little residence on an impromptu journey into Italy. Inside the ancient walls of Lucca is this lovely little hotel. It is in a very old building but is beautiful inside. The breakfast is lovely, the lady who runs it is very nice, I would recommend it. It also has free garaged parking literally across the road.... More
