We enjoyed our stay in Lucca! The staff was attentive and friendly, the room was unique, but very large and clean. And we were provided with a free, secure place to park our rental car. Lucca is a lovely historic town that is small enough to discover on foot or by bike (a bike rental place is located just a... More

We only spent one night in Lucca and arrived by car. I chose this bed and breakfast due to the friendly and easy communication via email, and because of its ideal location inside the city wall where all is in easy walking distance but still close to the walls that you can enter with your car without getting a ticket....

We were only here for one night but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Sonia called just before to check we were OK (we were in Pisa at the time) and welcomed us when we arrived. She was very helpful in recommending a nice restaurant (Cantine Bernardini) for the evening. Breakfast was wholesome and plentiful, enjoyed in the outside courtyard area. Highly... More

A perfect place to stay in a perfect town in Toscana. Lucca is very beautiful, with a lovely historic center and great restaurants. And Il Seminario is perfectly located inside the walls. The staff is very good, starting by the owner, Paolo, very frendly and always willing to help. Rooms are very comfortable, with good wi-fi coverage. Returning to Lucca,... More

Sonia greeted us and got us settled in very quickly. She explained the running of the B & B and showed us where we could make a cup of coffee or tea for ourselves after she had left for the evening. The car parking is at the rear of the building and the entrance is in the next street. Don't... More

I booked several months in advance for our group of three couples. I had difficulty getting responses to my American English questions--sometimes as much as three weeks without a reply. Then, I used Google Translate to form my questions in Italian and got immediate replies--so that is my best tip for you. The B&B is very nice, the rooms are... More

We stayed just two nights and were very pleased with the accommodations. We arrived by train which is a bit confusing but stopped at tourist information for directions to B & B which is inside the city walls. It was a fairly easy 15 minute walk from station. Our room was very nice and breakfast was plentiful. The staff is... More

Less than a 10 minute walk to the station and easy to find. Welcomed by Paolo who was warm and friendly and he showed us a map and gave us some restaurant recommendations (which we used and were very impressed by!!) Room was comfortable and warm and I would stay here again.

One of the highlight stays of our trip. When we arrived in Lucca and entered through Porta San Pietro, we had no idea where to go. So we called Paolo, our host, and he sent a young lady to greet us and guide us to the B&B. After registering we parked our car in their private courtyard. What a plus.... More

A wonderful B&B in a quiet peaceful part of Lucca inside the walls and only 10 mins from the station. The three ladies who run this B&B are so helpful and pleasant and can't do enough for you. Our room San Michelle was very spacious with a super bathroom. Very clean and lovely décor and a very comfortable bed. Tea... More
