Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was a lovely B & B and was just as we had hoped and more. Simona was so welcoming and extremely helpful. His recommendation for evening meal was spot on and the Puccini concert was amazing. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Fabulous!

A truly beautiful bed & breakfast with very gracious hosts Simona & Giulio made our short stay there in Lucca a very memorable one. Alright, so we had to walk up three flights of stairs, 60 steps in all I counted, no elevator and the rooms do have to share 3 spotlessly clean bathrooms that are a short walk down the hall but so what. Simona and Guilio were both kind people that I would be glad to welcome in my home any time as they welcomed us into theirs. The room was comfortable and airy, with a magnificent view out into a courtyard and a bell tower with a bell that didn't work, maybe purposely as to not disturb the neighbors. While a bathroom down the hall didn't bother us, it might some people. My wife never complained and believe me, she would have if it were any problem. It's well worth the climb up the stairs in an immaculate, well lit hallway. The location couldn't have been better inside the town walls, near all the shops and restaurants. The first morning we slept in unusually late and Guilio still greeted us with a smile and a fine breakfast out on the balcony. The price was very reasonable at 75 euros a night. We would stay there again and again and would recommend it to anyone. B&B Evelina is a beautiful place inside a beautiful city. Grazie mille Simona and Guilio! Piacere!

If you are seeking a quintessential Tuscan experience then Evelina B&B is the perfect place to base yourself. We have visited Lucca on three separate occasions over the past seven years and each time our experience is always the same, simple beautiful and the Evelina is the icing on the cake.

The day usually begins with a freshly baked "homemade" surprise on the terrace where you can sit and admire the view, setting the tone of your daily Lucca experience.

The Evelina decor, pictures and furniture take you back to the 19th century when steam was king. Yes you have three flights of stairs and shared bathrooms between guests, but quite frankly this is quintessential what Tuscany and Lucca is all about.

Our room was spacious and clean, and the view ... beautiful!

The hospitality and personal attention to detail from Simona and Giulio is superb – offering great advice on where to go, what to do and where to eat, should you need it.

Everything was in a word… perfect!

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this delightful B&B. We wanted to break away from the traditional hotel and experience something local. B&B Evelina certainly provided this experience! Climbing three flights of stairs to the apartment of Simona and Giulio, we were immediately immersed in their home. Our room (no 1) had a delightful view and was spacious and clean. Whilst bathrooms are shared between guests, they are kept clean and are within easy access from the rooms. The B&B is decorated with memorabilia from the couples' travels and breakfast is festive around a communal dining room table or, should you prefer, at your own table on the balcony with lovely views. Breakfasts are simple, local and lovely.

Simona and Guilio are always on hand but respect your privacy and are extremely helpful. They live in a separate area / floor to the B&B. We can highly recommend B&B Evelina.

After doing extensive research on Trip Advisor, my wife, daughter and I decided to stay @ Bed&Breakfast Evelina since it was INSIDE the city walls and is attractively priced.

It was a little difficult to find, but it was well worth it. The owner/staff is extremely friendly & helpful and the rooms were spotless with nice amenities.

If you're ok with a 'dorm style' bathroom system then this is the place to be. (Even the bathrooms were spotless, with all brand new fixtures. Looks like a 5 star hotel bathroom)

parking is outside the city wall (10 min. enjoyable walk)
Breakfast was exceptional!

My only regret is that we didn't have more time. We will skip the TripAdvisor research next year and book directly with BB Evelina. Great place for the price. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

I stayed here with my husband for one night in July 2013. I guess we had read their web page pretty badly, because we were surprised to find out that the bathrooms were not located in the rooms but were situated along the corridor. This is of course, a minor nuisance, and obviously was our own fault. The place is beautifully decorated and has an old world "pensione" atmosphere to it. We stayed in the room next to the living room (general area) and it is fair to say that in case someone is in the living room, there is not much privacy as there is no soundproofing between the two rooms. The breakfast was a disappointment compared to the other B&Bs we stayed in during our trip in Italy. In my opinion, breakfast at a B&B should always be somehow special. Cereal at breakfast is a real turn off... Lucca itself is pretty small, and we thought that one night was enough to see the critical sights. When we left, we had great difficulties in getting a taxi on time and we would have missed our train if the lady at the B&B would not have arranged a special transfer through her friend. It is a good idea to book a taxi well beforehand.

Evelina proved to be an outstanding B&B. Steps from everything, which admittedly isn't hard to find in Lucca since its such a compact city. The owners gracious and so very accommodating, full of suggestions for what to try in their favorite restaurants. Highly recommended
