“Good location, welcoming”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

The owner was extremely welcoming and helpful and the room, although on the smaller side, had a lovely large bathroom. Decorated well and a great location for walking into Lucca.

I booked this hotel with high expctations after I read some good reviews. More than a 4 star hotel, I think it's a polished 2 star hotel.
No lift, 30 min introduction from the receptionist just to explain to me how to get back into the hotel after 10PM (you need a code), how to use the remote controls in the room, how to make yourself a coffee, how to press the 3 light switches in order to get to my room...it was way too much...
the room was quite small and over furnished. I could barely walk around my bed but they decided to put an old chair in the corner so I had to jump in order to enter my bed.

In conclusion don't expect too much from this hotel! Small and clean...but it's missing most of the things that you would expect from a 4 star hotel

This place is great! My husband and I stayed here after it was recommended by a friend who stayed at Tango Hotel a year ago. We were not disappointed! The owners are magnificant! The treated us like family and went way out of their way to make us feel at home, including driving us to a pizza place in the outskirts of the lucca walls. We enjoyed every minute of our stay here.
Our bedroom was a good size, bathroom was very clean and our shower was the biggest of our trip. Breakfast options were minimal and not included in cost.

We picked out this hotel because of it's great reviews on Tripadvisor ... and it was better than expected!

This small and unique hotel is owned by a very friendly and helpful owner who has put a great deal of thought into its decor and facilities. Only a short walk from historic Lucca it was a great base for our brief stay in Lucca.

My teenagers were thrilled... as was my husband... we plan to return.

Reviewed November 17, 2007

We did enjoy our stay here. It's a lovely old restored character house done up very tastefully and artistically. It's in the middle of a residential area and is therefore only suited for sleeping or resting up. It's close to the train station and Lucca town centre, so no need for public transport or taxis. (Provided 10 to 15 minutes walks do not bother you). We found it a bit expensive for what and where it is. The breakfast was not included, so why call it a B&B? There is very little communal area (a small outdoor patio) so be prepared to be confined to your room while there. Our room was not on the road side and was therefore not too noisy, but the house is on a busy road that leads into Lucca and I can imagine this being a bit of a problem in some rooms. The internet connection was not free as stated on the website.
Overall we would reccomend this as a pleasant, comfortable, clean option if you are not staying inside the city walls.
The owner Mirriam was very friendly and accomodating, even with very little English.

Just outside Lucca's walls (Via Formica 390; ---); easy walk to city center; ample parking. Top-to-bottom renovation just completed June, 2007. Owner Miriam made our 3-generation group of nine (ages 2 to 70) warmly welcome; excellent rooms with good bathrooms. Rates reasonable. Breakfast OK: 2nd cup off coffee extra.
