After checking out this b & b and reading the reviews I was slightly concerned however, I do wonder what some people expect.
Firstly this is a b & b and doesnt excatly what it says, it isnt a hotel, no 24 hour reception, late night drinking bar etc and for the location, rooms and breakfast it was superb.
It is a 5 minute walk to the walled city and 10 minute walk into the main town. Have to say location is wonderful and right at end of road is a fab take away pizza shop, lovely authentic bar and small restaurant.
Francesa whom works at the reception and breakfast was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble from issuing us a map to booking a taxi for us.
We found the outside and inside stunning, so nice to stay in something authentic rather than a plush hotel with no charactor. The courtyard out the back was great, even managed a pizza takeaway to eat out there.
Rooms were spotless and I mean spotless, the bathrooms were to die for and the beds were the most comfortable that I have ever slept on. Such lovely character to enjoy within the building it was wonderful.
We had the room at the front with the small balcony, such a joy to wake up and see the church from our room.
Breakfast was typically b&b style, juices, water and hot drinks, cakes, bread, eggs, meats cheeses etc. Really nothing wrong with it, bear in mind it isnt a michelin starr restaurant so not sure what people expect.
The bar next door seems alway open and we enjoyed a few one for the roads there before bedtime! Great atmosphere.
Lucca itself is glorious and wish we had longer to wander around but we did Pisa on the train which for 4 euros was a bargain for the day and only downside of our stay was that it wasnt longer.
