“Perfect apartment - easy to find, free parking, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Stayed with 4 friends = a apartment for 5! Apartment was very good in size, impeccably clean and included a bedroom with a double bed, sofa-bed for two and one extra bed.

We ended up eating out: lunch, dinner & breakfast. Even so, the apartment was very well equipped: cooking facilities, fridge, dishwasher and ironing board, flat-screen, satellite TV and air-conditioning.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was not a question left unanswered and anything we needed they were able to help with.

Location of the apartments is excellent. It is outside the Lucca walls, but close enough for just a short walk. Parking is free. And the location is easy to find when arriving to Lucca.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

Stayed here with my husband and daughter for 2 nights, intending then to return to Florence where we had an apartment already. Enjoyed our stay here so much that we booked an extra night! The apartment was spacious enough for all 3 of us, with a double sofa bed for my daughter and a separate bedroom for me and my husband. There was also a separate shower room so there was comfort and privacy for all of us. The apartment is very well equipped with cooking facilities, fridge, dishwasher and ironing board. There is also flat-screen, satellite T.V. and, most importantly in August, air conditioning in each room. The apartment is scrupulously clean and is cleaned daily. the staff were very friendly, and the manager was extremely helpful, e.g. helping us find out train times to Florence and calling us a taxi. ( 5 minutes from train station by taxi) He also provided us with a map of Lucca with all important tourist sites marked out. The location is excellent, within a few minutes walk to the walls of Lucca. Lucca itself is beautiful and well worth a visit. We found it a lovely wind down (and cooler!) than the hustle and bustle of Florence. We had booked an apartment in Florence with the intention to travel around. We wished we had booked to stay here as a base instead! We plan to return to explore more of Tuscany - we will definitely stay here again.
