My husband and I spent 3 nights at B & B Evelina in July, we were most impressed. Simona and Giulio are very warm and the whole B & B is very clean and well presented. Although we usually book places with en suite bathrooms, this was not a problem. The location is great, easy to find and soon found our favourite dining spots, we just loved Lucca. Our room had a lovely view of the rooftops and a clothes line, so Simona supplied some pegs and we started our next leg of our adventure with clean clothes, always a plus. Breakfasts were plentiful and varied from day to day. I would recommend this B & B and will definitely stay here again if we are ever in Lucca again. We knew about the stairs before booking and did not mind the exercise.

This B&B was gorgeous! It was in the central part of Lucca very close to everything to see. Only a short walk away to a lovely place to rent bikes to ride the parameter of the city. The couple the runs this B&B and the sweetest and Mose delightful people I had met during my stay. The breakfast in the morning had stocked with Italy's finest fruits and salami. Thank you for such an enchanted trip Evelina

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend, and it was wonderful! Simona and Giulio are fantastic hosts, very welcoming, and their bed and breakfast is full of personality. The rooms and common spaces are immaculate and simply decorated, but highlight their personal family heirlooms and travel souvenirs. The breakfast was delicious- fresh juices and baked goods, coffee to order, and Italian specialities. One morning we were planning to catch an early train to take a day trip to the Cinque Terre, and we were going to miss breakfast. When we mentioned this in passing to Simona, she packed us "breakfast to go," with fruit, apple cake, cheese, and walnuts. Such a sweet gesture!
They are located minutes away from the center of Lucca, and they have a lovely view of the city. Do note the bathrooms are shared, but there are three and we never had an issue of there not being an available bathroom. Highly, highly, highly recommend. Lucca is a great town, and staying at this little B&B will make your stay that much more enjoyable.

Stayed here last night, beautiful little B&B. Decent rooms, comfortable bed, fast WIFI, no need to go to reception and sit on the front desk couch like you do with some others, works perfectly in your room (we were in room 6). Excellent location, very central. Breakfast was more than acceptable, fresh sweets, fresh juice, apples and cinnamon, cereal and yogurt and more...

The owner is great, very nice to talk to, speaks great English if your Italian is not up scratch...

All over 10/10 if you need to stay one or two nights, highly recommended.

Five reasons to stay at the B&B Evelina:

1. Central location in the Centro Storico off the Via Fillungo;
2. Its gracious hosts: Simona & Giulio, who also suggested some fantastic places in which to dine;
3. Quirky decor with objets sourced by the owners from their childhood giving it a Proustian and quixotic ambience;
4. Breakfast is served on the terrace with a view of the Torre Delle Ore and which included fresh pear juice, almond and amaretto cakes which were freshly baked with locally sourced cheese, ham, salami and broad beans. Delicious!
5. Waking up every morning after a superb night's sleep with a view of Lucca's rooftops. Bliss.

I long to return there on my next trip to Tuscany.

Andrew.

A comfortable bed with lovely linens in a clean, quiet and well- appointed room room with a view over the rooftops to one of lucca's famous towers. A pleasant little common room to meet with other guests, talk to the host or check out tourist information. Clean and convenient bathrooms. An emphasis on privacy and respect for other, guests. A delightfully quirky decor. A friendly and helpful host who serves a good breakfast. And a good location too. It suited us just fine.

Giulio and Simona made us feel at home the moment we arrived. The place is located inside the wall and is close to everything. Loved the breakfasts. They had local items and home made jams. It was a little cool when we were there, but we still had to eat on the deck. The view was perfect to start the day. Lucca was a nice town to visit and B&B Evelina made it the perfect stay. There were a lot of stairs, but Italy is a lot of climbing and walking.
