We have been to Il Cuore several times. We have always been impressed by the excellence and consistency of the service offered. Personal, friendly, genuine. The room we had the year before has been redecorated. It has a little terrace and steps directly down to the courtyard garden. A bijou!

I have stayed at Il Cuore a number of times in the past as I visit Massa quite often for work. It is perfect if you want to be in the centre of the town as it is only a stone's throw from the central piazza, but it is also very quiet and private. The entire place has been renovated... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. It is a very romantic hotel. The room and bathroom are spacious, very clean and fully equipped. Extremely comfortable and quiet. Maybe due to the fact that we were there during the off-peak season. The breakfast served is typically Italian, none of that eggs and bacon nonsense :) The staff is extremely nice, welcoming... More

I had a wonderful stay at this B&B! I would highly recommend making this place your "go to" if you are going to be in Massa. It is conveniently located in the center of the old historic part of town. It was a quick walk to many great restaurants and shops! The train station is also walk-able. My friends and... More

This B&B is excellent value. Daniela, the owner, and Beata her right hand, are friendly and hospitable, they make you feel at home. They went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The service was excellent and breakfast was wonderful with cakes Daniela made herself fresh every morning. The room was immaculate. The location was well situated halfway between... More

A very cosy B&B in the historical center of Massa. The owner, Daniela was very friendly and welcoming and ready to answer questions and give tips. The breakfast in the beautiful little garden included homemade cake and eggs on request to your liking. The whole hotel is decorated with attention to detail and the room cleaning was done without us... More

The rooms are large, spotless and tastefully decorated. We had room no. 5 which has a small balcony and access to the garden where you can have... More

Nestled in a back street of the historical centre of Massa, this beautiful B & B became our home away from home for a week while we explored the area, including Pisa (45 min by car), Lucca (40 min), Portovenere (56 min) and from La Spezia (36 min)... the Cinque Terra.

This B&B in Massa, Italy is extremely charming, beautifully decorated, nicely located near the center of town, and very clean. We found this lovely inn through trip advisor and promptly booked 4 nights of our trip through the Massa-Carrara area. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and delicious and Beata and Daniela are both extremely nice. However, BE FOREWARNED, they do... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cross the antique threshold and you'll enter a small world of emotions. The passion for life, beautiful things and hospitality can be felt, it lingers in every corner of the enchanting B&B where antique and modern blend with harmony, creating an ambiance rich with charm. Throughout the alleys, taverns and ancient shops of Massa's historic centre, IL CUORE Bed and Breakfast is a leap in the past, a place where you will feel welcomed and cuddled and where you will rediscover the pleasure of the conviviality of past times. Nothing is casual, everything is specifically wanted and created by Daniela and Roberto who lovingly selected the decors, furnishings and the many small things that make IL CUORE unique. Let the rocking horses, the old bird cages, the hearts and candles, the Murano glass chandeliers, the sweet and melodic music and the scent of orange blossoms that float in every ambient surprise and enchant you. Every corner is a surprise! The natural and warm tones of the fabrics, the refined elegance of the living room, the intimate atmosphere of the breakfast room, the fragrance of the apple cake that Beata prepares every morning, the light in the garden that enhances the white scented blossoms will make your stay unforgettable, a real revitalization of the body and mind. In the massage room you can enjoy the pleasure of a Shatsu, Reiki or Craniosacral massage among candles and relaxing music. B&B provides bicycles, free of charge, which our guests can use to discover the sweet hills, and reach the seaside, a free and carefree way to visit the nearby areas. If you happen to have a pet with you, IL CUORE and Trilli, our small Maltese terrier, who is the real queen of the house, will welcome you with pleasure. Il Cuore B&B, character and personality in Massa's historical heart. ... more   less
