Pietro is really friendly and nice and try to get each wish, even you just thought of it. Nice and beautiful. It's an adventure, like sleep in an other world. We had the suite, it was wonderful. It's a must to stay here, when you are in Lucca. Thanks Pietro. Garden and Breakfast, an oasis.

We stayed two nights at this hotel, booked trough Booking.com. So far so good. The place is very noisy, you can hear everything what's going on in the house. There was no hot water the first morning which was fixed later on. Breakfast was spartanic and I almost had to beg for a second coffee. Booking.com has send us a... More

This is a great place, clean and managed with great care. We had a very nice, quiet room (no. 7, 2nd floor) with garden view and a comfortable bathtub inside the room, as well as a spacious bathroom with shower. Kids will love the "folletti" decor, couples will enjoy its romantic atmosphere. Young and friendly staff. Decent, diverse breakfast (though... More

Confirm your reservation before arriving to make sure you,in fact, have a reservation. We arrived in July only to find that we did not have a reservation after receiving a confirmation in December 2013 when we and our friends were in contact with them. We found out that Corte Dei Folletti was under new management since the beginning of 2014... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. The room for three persons was a double with an extra bed brought in. The room was fairly small even for two and with the extra bed there was no space at all; must be the first hotel room with not even a single chair! By contrast, the bathroom was quite spacious....

If you are thinking about this hotel---Don't. We arrived with a confirmed reservation for 5 days, which we had made 7 months prior and had confirmed with Peter 3 weeks before. When we arrived the door was locked and we rang and knocked for at least 10 minutes. Finally someone opened the door and said"What?" We stated that we were... More

We chose Corte dei Folletti for a relatively cheap short break and were really delighted with the eccentric but beautiful decor, superbly large and comfortable room and absolutely charming staff. The whole house is decorated with quirky but attractive art work on a goblin theme (see their website for an idea of what I mean) and all the furnishings and... More

We found this amazing B&B and fell in love with it as soon as we walked in. The rooms, amazing, the service ( Peter & Marika) were just so beautiful. You will never find better service or more friendly people on the planet. 10/10. Hope we can come back to Lucca again one day

Arrived at the property at 6pm. Although my booking clearly stated check in till 8pm there was no staff present. A notice on the door gave a code to enter the property. Keys waiting but no indication of when staff would be present or hours of breakfast. Terrible smell in my room due to the fact that the fridge was... More
