We stayed here for 7 nights from late March to early April 2013 over Easter and so glad we chose Relais San Lorenzo. Situated on a floor of a beautiful old Italian building that has been tastefully renovated. We were unexpectedly upgraded to the larger room with separate reading area and it's own outside private patio/balcony area. Wow! What a wonderful surprise and space! Daniela the owner and host was fabulous… nothing was too much trouble and she was most helpful with local suggestions on food, wine and sights to see. It was my partner's birthday whilst we stayed here and after a great dinner out we came back to a lovely bunch of flowers Daniela had left for her… a lovely touch!
Breakfast was great… lots of food to choose from, including eggs if you want them. Coffee was great! The breakfast room is in the common central lounge area with big fireplace that must be great on a cold Winters day… this room had plenty of books to read, and every night a decanter of cognac is left out for a quiet pre-sleep drink if wanted.
Great position with everything within Lucca so close to walk to… the town wall is just around the corner! Hire bikes and ride around it a few times for a different perspective of Lucca! Especially nice on a sunny day.
Make sure you visit the archaeological dig just inside the front door and on the ground floor for some great history of the property and what was built before! Amazing!!
Internet access was great, conencting via the ethernet cable provided to us by Daniela. She said the Wifi doesn't work too well in the bedrooms through the thick old building wall, so she provides the cable! You can use WiFi in the main lounge area though.
Highly recommend Relais San Lorenzo… we loved every minute of our stay here and we were both very sad to leave. Daniela, we will be back one day and will bring the baby with us! Thanks for your absolute kindness.
