La Colonna
Ranked #69 of 176 Lucca B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We chose this B&B on a recommendation by a friend. The room was large and clean, with plenty of storage. We enjoyed the en suite bath, which not all rooms have. The bed was the most comfortable we slept in all of Italy. Mirkos was very friendly and helpful. The location is great--close to sights, shops & restaurants--yet It's on a quiet street. Previous reviews commented that breakfast was not served on site. Apparently that's changed because there was a small but adequate offering which included a few breads and pastries, jelly, cheese, meat, cereal, yogurt, coffee, tea and juice (maybe more that I've forgotten). I commented on the last morning that I wish soy milk was available (I try to avoid dairy) and Mirkos said that had he known, he would've been happy to oblige. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: Request a room with an attached bath.

Se non fosse per la disponibilità del proprietario, la struttura in sé non è un gran che. Le stanze sono piuttosto cupe e si fa colazione praticamente nel corridoio... Alcune camere hanno inoltre il bagno privato ma fuori della stanza. Presenta indiscutibili vantaggi come la massima centralità, ma a parte questo non ha purtroppo grandi altri meriti...

The owner is very kind, but the structure is not so appreciable. The rooms are enough dark and you will have breakfast in the passageway. Some rooms have a private bathroom, but you have to go out the bedroom for reaching it. It has indubitable advantages, as the good position in the historical center, but apart from this it has not other attractions...

Buonasera, mi dispiace che non sia stato di suo gradimento, mi risulta molto difficile comprendere i suoi commenti sulla struttura dato che fino ad ora, leggendo le recensioni su di noi, tutti i clienti hanno trovato il b&b molto accogliente e tuttaltro che cupo ( forse un piano terra esposto in un giardino con molte piante, in centro storico, in una giornata di pioggia non aiuta a renderlo luminoso....) La colazione viene servita in uno spazio sufficentemente comodo e accogliente per gustarsi la colazione e comunue è anche possibile il servizio in camera. Questo è un B&B e a differenza di un Hotel è possibile che ci siano camere con bagno esterno privato o addirittura in comune, ma non è comunue stato il suo caso dato che il bagno era interno.
rispetto i suoi commenti... in fondo il mondo è bello perchè vario!!!!!!
Distinti saluti

My friends and I visited Lucca for a short break and we stayed at this lovely B&B. It is located in the hearth of the city, very close to all the hidden jems of the historical town of Lucca.
Mirko, the owner, is a perfect host, very friendly and interesting to talk to, we appreciated his ongoing and helpful recommendations on good restaurants and places to visit.
Our room was very nice and clean with ensuite bathroom, and in particular was very silent as the window was on the internal court. Breakfast was good too, I loved lthe local fresh pastries and cappuccino! but you could have also juices, croissants, cakes, rolls.. a great way to start the day!! The atmosphere was nice, overall had a great time.

This B&B is an easy walk from the train station. It is in the center of Lucca's walled city yet on a quiet street. The quad room next to the front desk was very comfortable and although on the street the traffic stopped early and we slept well. The wi-fi was awesome --- not always the case in Italy. The owner, Mirko, is charming and helpful as well. We loved Lucca and this B&B made the stay our favorite on this trip.

My husband and I stayed at this B&B for our Anniversary. We loved it so much that we added on an extra night. The B&B is centrally located and very easy to reach by walking from the train station. The owner Mirko, was very welcoming and offered a lot of useful tips to sight seeing and cuisine in and around Lucca. Our room and bath was spacious and our the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was typical for Italy with a lot of fresh baked breads, croissants, pastries, juice, coffee etc. served on site. Free WiFi with an excellent connection for those travelers who like to stay connected.

I chose La Colonna because it was advertised as a B&B. To me, this means that breakfast is served on site. Unfortunately this doesn't happen at La Colonna. We were only informed that breakfast was not on site at check-in not when we were booking. This coloured our view of our stay.
We were given two vouchers for breakfast at two different cafes as one was closed on Sunday.

We stayed at 10 different places in Italy and at 9 of them breakfast was tea/coffee and a buffet which included several or all of the following, pastries, cakes, croissants, rolls, bread, cheese, cold meats, fruit, yoghurts and cereals.
At the cafes providing our breakfasts we were given a choice of tea or coffee and ONE pastry. I had a carton of yoghurt as well and had to pay for it.

We had a deluxe room at the end of the hallway with an en suite bathroom. The room was large and comfortable but rather dark. The bedding and bathroom fittings were new and smart.
We found the door slamming to other bathrooms rather annoying as it happened each time other guests used their loo-- even well after midnight. The room was not serviced while we were there although we stayed 2 nights.

La Colonna is within the old town and within walking distance of the railway station, all the sights and some good restaurants.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is 'en suite' as some private bathrooms are across the hallway.

da gennaio 2013 la colazione è servita a buffet all'interno della struttura.
le camere sono al piano terra ed espongono su un giardino con molti alberi... difficile in dicembre poter avere tanta luce specie se è nuvoloso!!!
