“A great B&B right in the center of Lucca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

A wonderful and historic B&B that's perfectly located for tourists. We booked the suite, which was lovely and extremely spacious. My only complaint is that we didn't stay long enough to fully enjoy Lucca, our hotel and the hospitality of Giulio and Gaia. Absolutely stay here if you are able (they only have a few rooms).

I booked this very last minute, and I'm so lucky they had availability. Amazing hospitality, wonderful breakfast, and great central location. They offer a great discount if you book directly, pay in cash, and have the Rick Steves book (which is how I found this place). Dinner recommendation was spot on. Only down fall was the awful directions they sent which left me trying to find the place for over an hour (it's only 15 min from the train station though), so print your own map before you go. Highly recommended to stay here!

We felt very fortunate La Romea had availability when we stayed in Lucca. We stayed in the green room, which was really fabulous. We had a nice quiet stay, and the communal area (pictured) is really great - it almost has the feel of a hip coffee shop in the states, and self-serve coffee and tea are available. The entire house is amazing, and had a great ambiance - perfect for Lucca

The breakfast was fabulous as well - quite a variety and everything was very tasty. Giulio and Gaia were both great, and helped us with excellent suggestions and made sure we were oriented.

Finally, the location of La Romea is perfect - right in the center of town so nothing is a very far walk, easy to find, and set on a nice quiet street just a few blocks from the Guinigi tower

We first stayed here 8 years ago and were so impressed with the location, character and warmth of welcome that we just had to return. Although it has taken 8 years for us to do so, we were not disappointed. Giulio and Gaia are wonderful hosts and not surprisingly, very little has changed. That is the appeal of Lucca and La Romea in particular. We stayed in the Blue room once again, it is just beautiful. We will not wait another 8 hears before we return.

We loved staying at La Romea B&B in April 2014. We stayed for two nights and the location was wonderful - in the middle of Lucca near the main drag. Giulio and Gaia were gracious hosts who oriented us to the city and gave directions when we asked. Breakfast was lovely, and one of the few places you can get scrambled eggs if you're missing those. The rooms have lovely, high ceilings and you can see some of the original decor. You have your own set of keys to the building and the B&B, so you can keep your own schedule. Be prepared to walk up a few flights of stairs.

We had a wonderful stay over New Year at " La Romea". The couple who owns and runs the place are absolutely fantastic people, the rooms are beautiful and unique, the breakfast is really good... The list could go on and on. Should you ever plan to visit Lucca, this is the place to stay!

Lucca is fascinating - full of history, and some great restaurants and bars! La Romea is in the centre and parking is available about half a mile away. However, Giulio and Gaia are really helpful and will park your car for you once you have arrived with your luggage and will help when you leave.
The bedrooms are traditionally furnished and comfortable and a very good and varied breakfast is served in the wonderful dining room.
There are several interesting places to visit locally including Pisa, which was more impressive than we ever thought it might be - wonderful!
