“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

The owners are really kind and helpful.
The apartments are exactly as described on the website, and have full set of equipment. Furniture is really nice and of high quality, rooms are large and sunny. The kitchen was small in our apartment, but did well its job.
The house is located straight inside the "walls" of Lucca, and allow you to visit easily the whole town.

Good service from Roberta at reception and a large apartment for 2, although the floor plan could have utilized the space better. We stayed in Gianni Sachi. When we arrived all the dishes were still in the dishwasher and some cups were unclean. Also the toilet roll holder was broken and left on the bathroom shelf, the toilet brush was also broken. These were fixed quickly by my husband with the tools supplied by reception. It was not a big deal but I wonder if the apartment had been thoroughly checked after the previous occupants. Casa paolina is in a good location with a view of the square, the windows are double glazed but it is a little noisy in the morning with the street sweepers going back and forth. It is an easy walk to the train station. I would recommend this apartment but I missed the daily service of a hotel.

Room Tip: Gianni Sachi has a view of the small square and opening windows.

Roberta & Diletta gave us every assistance to make our ten day stay memorable. Beautiful modernised apartment in the heart of Lucca. ideal for those who want comfort and quality place to stay among the local citizens. Lift access to the apartment! Many bars and Locandas are within 100 meters. ..............................................................

Roomy, clean, modern, fully-equipped, well-functioning 2nd floor apartment (spacious elevator). Light-flooded due to corner-location. Looks on two squares. Friendly, easy-going staff. The city’s central shopping area and Renaissance churches can very easily be reached on foot. Restaurants all around. Highly recommendable.

Casa Paulina is located in a very strategic location, at the corner of Piazza Napoleone, it feels like home when you are there, easy access, clean and cosy apartments, everything is well prepared and the managing people are friendly and helpful.

there are 10s of restaurants around and I do recommend Restaurant Del Teatro, they have amazing food & are 10 meters from Casa Paulina and their prices are acceptable
I have stayed in other cities and used 3 - 4 different hotels, Casa Paulina was the best among them

We spent 6 nights in Apartment Turandot, a 2 bedroom apartment, and we found the apartment excellent and the service from the staff very professional and helpful. The beds were comfortable with lovely linen. There was a good amount of storage space and the furnishings modern. It was a bit noisy at night as the position was very central. No laundry facilities on site.

We were a family of 4 adults and 3 children, staying for 5 nights, in the 3 bed roomed "Madame Butterfly" apartment. It is very centrally located off the main square. The apartments are very new , modern and fashioned to a high specification. The rooms are light and airy, with plenty of space. There is a fully equipped kitchenette , with modern appliances.The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds , and bedding and linen is supplied. You pay an extra charge for end of stay laundry.
The staff were extremely helpful , and are on site most of the day. A bonus is the lift which is not always available in city aprtments.
It can be noisy at night , but thats the same in all of Italy.A definite good place.
