We stayed here during our bike packing tour and loved it. Our bikes were safe and we were right in the middle of the centre. The owners are such friendly and lovely people. Very special building and stunning rooms.

If we can express in one word our experience at the Antica Bifore it would be WONDERFUL. Historical and well cared rooms, sweet amenities provided and welcoming hosts make the place just PERFECT ! We have not been once but several time with our parents, so 2 generations have experienced the same feelings : great guesthouse at first and then, by coming over and over, the privilege to have discovered such an historical and precious place to stay in. The expectation is still the same every time, just knowing in advance it's going to be great .... AGAIN. Not to mention the couple Stefano and Brid who are just magnificent in the way they welcome you and make your stay so comfy. The best secret in town ? .... Probably. The best place to stay in Lucca ? ... Definately. THANK YOU and see you again. For sure. Henri, Roumiama, Stefano & Aline Thankful and always happy to see you.

The most beautiful guesthouse in the most sought-after location – I cannot fault this place! Stefano was a wonderful host who welcomed us at check-in and talked to us about the best things to see in Lucca. The bedrooms, like the entrance/dining room, were out of this world! It was truly an immersive and wonderful experience in a beautiful city with lots to offer.

Shame on me for not doing so. IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL FOR ANY REASON YOU OWE THE FULL AMOINT FOR YOUR STAY, 100 PERCENT NO MATTER THE REASON. Even in off season. Just be sure you want to commit to zero cancellation, no matter if you have an emergency, cancelled flight, etc. I just paid fully fir a stay I can’t use even though I tried to cancel almost a week out. Again, shame on me for not being more diligent in my booking.

Response from Stefano Pilloni, Owner at L'Antica Bifore
Responded Feb 24, 2020
Hi Cindy, Thank you so much for taking the time to submit this review. You booked directly with us. Before finalising the booking you need to accept our terms and condition which you did. Sorry no fine or small print involved. The same cancellation policy is clearly included in your booking confirmation details sent to you by our system at the time of booking. This includes our 21 day cancellation policy. You contacted us on the 19th of February to cancel which was four days before you were due to check-in. While you might think we are in the off season we were fully booked and because of your reservation we had to turn down other requests. All the best, Stefano L'Antica Bifore Guesthouse
