We stayed there for 6 nights in July 2016. The B&B is very near the old city-wall of Lucca and it took maybe 5-10 minutes to walk to the restaurants within the old city. Our host could benefit from having good instructions in English regarding the nearest grocery or convenience store, the nearest bus stop (she said her guests either... More

The reason this property gets such a low score is the fact that it was absolutely boiling in the room. They had provided a fan but it was no use! There was no aircon (I wish I had known this before booking but didn't see it stated anywhere) and I think for the price we had paid it wasn't worth... More

This place is much better than it looks on the pictures. We liked it all. It takes only a couple of minutes to walk to one of the gates to the old town. We also liked that we could check out the breakfast, before we decided if we should take it or not. It turned out to be excellent and... More

We stayed for 1 night the second week in May. We picked this hotel because we were driving, needed parking and didn't want to stay directly in the walled city but could walk to it with ease. It also had a fair price, but didn't include breakfast. This was an additional $6euro/pp. Our room was very large and had a... More

The position is excellent for many reasons. We parked the car the day of arrival and never touched it again until it was packed for the return journey home. It's about a 15 minute walk through the St.Anne Gate into the heart of Lucca and its many treasures. Our room(Puccini) was well-heated and spotlessly clean,,the water in the shower plentiful...

Great little budget hotel that was just opening for the 2016 season. Pleasant staff, good parking and plentiful hot water. There was a little road noise and we chose a budget room but we enjoyed our stay. Thank you

Very convenient location, 400 meters from Porta Sant. Anna! Very friendly staff. Grazie, Silvia! We asked for early check-in and got it. The hotel is clean, it is a typical Tuscan house. Free parking lot for 6-7 cars. We will stay more days - another time, I hope.

The location is quite good,close to the city walls (10 min walking) and have free parking lot. Cleaning of the room was poor. Bed cover and pillowcase were ok, but pillows smell not good. No toilet paper. During our stay in november room was cold.

It's situated just outside the city walls and the price reflects this. The room was lovely, clean and big. And breakfast was amazing. They were very friendly. If you don't have that much cash definitely stay here, VERY good value for money.
