“Lovely old house in the heart of the city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

During our tour of Tuscany we stayed one night in a two bedroom apartment of La Tasca Rooms, and it was the highpoint of our tour. Lucca is a lovely city, and La Tosca Rooms is an accomodation with lost of atmosphere. It is located right in the heart of the city centre, in one of the main (pedestrianised) shopping streets. There is no reception, but if you call ahead about your time of arrival then a representative of the owner will be waiting for you at the door. After the entrance door a steep staircase (not suitable for people with limited abilities) leads up to another entrance door on the first floor. After that second door is a corridor with doors to the three apartments that La Tosca offers. They are probably all different, so I can only comment on the two bedroom apartment that is furthest down the corridor. One of the bedrooms in this apartment is sufficiently spacious to allow for two suitcases and a baby cot to be placed in there, the other bedroom is a bit smaller and does not have place for more than one suitcase. There is no real living room or kitchen in the apartment. Instead there is a very wide L-shaped corridor leading from the entrance door to the two bedrooms. In this corridor you will find a couch, a dining table and a cupboard that contains a small kitchen. It's not suitable for cooking full meals, but sufficient to heat some pre-purchased foods or cook breakfast. The apartment at the back does not border any street, so it's very quiet. The drawback is that there is no view either, and there is limited natural lighting. Not a place to spend many hours per day, but absolutely excellent as a base for exploring the city and surroundings. I would definately stay here again during a future visit to Lucca.
