“Nice B&B close to the city walls with parking”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

It is located close to the city walls, I would recommend you have a GPS to find the place.

It’s a tight squeeze to get into the cark park at the back of the B&B if cars are parked badly.

We had a good size room with balcony

Minor complaint a previous occupant had smoked on the balcony and left an ash tray full of cigarette buts on the sun lounger that had not been removed.

We recently stayed for 1 night at the Lucca in Villa and were very impressed.
The rooms are large and newly decorated, with decent size bathrooms and the best hotel breakfast we had during this trip to Italy.
It was great value for money and offers free parking in their own grounds, there is also plenty of on street parking nearby.
Location wise it is about 5 minutes walk from the city walls and lovely old town, with local shops, restaurants etc close by.
In short we would stay here again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: we had a ground floor room and didn't see any others, but sure they are all good

I thoroughly enjoyed my week's stay at Villa Donato in May, 2013. The staff were friendly and helpful; theyhelped me orientate myself with respect to my Italian school and services in Lucca. Villa Donato is located just outside the city's walls so within a few minutes you can reach the centre.

My room was very comfortable with a modern, adjoining bathroom.

Self-service breakfast catered to many tastes with delicious fresh breads, cakes, yogurt, cereal and fruits.

I am happy to recommend this hotel for its value and hospitality.

Room Tip: Personally I found my room quiet and comfortable

A really good location for Lucca. Within a ten minute walk of the walls with parking for the car. Pleasant room with tea and coffee making facilities but with no milk. There was some road noise outside so try and get a quiet room (there are some that face the back). Continental breakfast but by the time we arrived there wasn't a great deal of food left and the dining room needed clearing. Overall, would recommend and the receptionist was helpful too

Room Tip: With balcony at rear.

We spent 2 nights there last summer and it was just a great stay. We could easily walk to the city centre, our room was very clean and big. Alessandra gave us very helpful information on what to do and where to have lunch in Lucca. Very big breakfast!
If back in Lucca, will book there again...

Just had a few days family stay, clean, well sited, great breakfast and very friendly manager, Alessandra, who made us feel most welcome and went out of her way to arrange early breakfasts on two days of our stay when we had 7.30am starts.
Parking was good, entry street is narrow but in Lucca this is the norm.
15 minutes easy walk to Lucca centre Piazza Grande, 20 minutes walk to Lucca station meant that for much of our 4 day stay we could leave the car parked.
Only minor comment our daughters made was TV screen was small and though had 40+ channels, no non Italian language ones, having said that they want to go back again during any future trips.
Very much enjoyed it.

Room Tip: Our rooms were upstairs at rear of house away from road outside, so quieter than at front.
