Unfortunately, we stayed here only for a day, on our way to Cinque Terre. But we had an amazing time in Lucca. The hostess, Elisabeth is very charming and extremely helpful.

This hostel is perfect, seriously. The owner extremely nice, talkative and helpful. The rooms are clean, there's kitchen, what you can use. The location very good: already within the wall, but 5 min walk from the train station. I only can recommend this

The proprietor, Elisabeth, was very friendly and attentive. Our room was spacious and equipped with all the amenities we could expect. The location is great, just a few short blocks from the train station, yet inside the old city walls. There were many restaurants and gelateria nearby. The bicycle rental shop was mere steps away. Elisabeth was most helpful recommending... More

What a great B&B. The rooms were large and clean with comfortable beds. Elisabeth, the owner was very knowledgeable about places to go and provided a yummy breakfast every morning. The location was perfect for day excursion. Lucca is a charming town. Can't wait to go back!

This is not a fancy B&B but it is certainly affordable, comfortable, quaint and hosted by a most lovely owner. This B & B has just about every thing you need. The location is great, the rooms were comfortable and clean. I will definitely stay again next time I am in Lucca.

Had a wonderful 4 nights here. Elizabeth couldn't have been nicer. Breakfasts are very Italian, and the cappuccino is delicious. Having a laundry is so helpful. Elizabeth even helped with it. We had a lovely, bright room with two windows. It has been very warm in Lucca so we were grateful there was a very efficient air conditioner in our... More

Elisabeth Warren is an amazing B&B owner! She helped us to arrange several tours in the Tuscany area which made our Italian vacation wonderful. We have stayed at many B&B's over the years, but Elizabeth is the most gracious and helpful hostess that we have ever experienced. We felt like we were family and everything was extremely comfortable. We will... More

Elisabeth is such a lovely, friendly host... very welcoming and full of information! Good location within the walls but not too far from station. Good wifi signal and breakfast. My room was large, with attached bathroom, and also quiet. Excellent value for money.

The host, Elisabeth was really nice and helpful. Our stay was sufficiently enjoyable, and I don't regret staying there. However, I don't think we would stay here again. While one room was very nice and spacious, the other was quite cramped and not very light. The bathroom was outside both of the rooms and was small with a funky door... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The B&B Le Violette was recently bought from a very social and dynamic Signora who, having turned 70 years old, was ready to retire. This signora found in the current owner, Elisabeth Warren, a similarity that satisfied her desire to pass on the B&B to someone who would enjoy and manage it as she did. We offer a comfortable room and a delightful breakfast. Conveniently located within the intriguing walls of Lucca, yet a minute walk from its train station, we give our guests the best of this charming town as well as the easy accessibility in exploring its surroundings. Free Wi-Fi in the entire B&B. There are free maps to Lucca and its surrounding areas. The host is present at breakfast to give suggestions and advice and is always available by phone for any specific needs. Italian Breakfast is from 7:30am to 10:30am consisting of croissants, bread with butter, jam or nutella, yogurt, cakes and juice with your choice of cappuccino, espresso, tea, caffe latte, American coffee or hot chocolate. The host will usually encounter the guests at check-in and leave them the keys to the building, the B&B and their room so they may come and go as they please. Checkin: from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Please contact us in advance for early or late arrivals. Checkout: before 11:00am ... more   less
