Grand base in a beautiful town

This is a wonderful ancient building right in the middle of town, and our room had great character with original windows opening directly onto the church opposite, painted murals and antique furniture. Really affordable at this time of year. The shower is tiny and the bed is two singles together - I'd prefer a proper double but that's ok. The room overlooks a central street but it's quiet overnight. We did bring earplugs as the street starts to wake up by 7 or so, but there was never the rowdiness we have at home. Our confirmation email from hotels.com had "free breakfast" under the heading of "facilities" but this isn't the case this time of year; to make up for this mistake, Stefano gave us vouchers for the cafe round the corner that we liked anyway, so we were happy with that. Stefano and Brid are really welcoming and helped with recommendations for restaurants - everything we ate and drank over five days was delicious.

Great stay

We stayed for 2 nights in mid-December and Stefano and Bríd couldn't have been more accommodating. We needed to change our booking to stay an extra night due to work commitments, and they were amazingly helpful and hospitable. The guesthouse is beautiful, with large comfortable rooms and useful amenities like a coffee maker, wifi etc. We loved our two nights here. Stefano gave us some helpful suggestions for places to eat and things to see, which were great - we ended up at one of his recommended restaurants two nights in a row! Lucca is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring during the bustle of Christmas, but without many tourists.

Traditional tower house accommodation

The accommodation is in an old tower house which was so interesting to see. Our room was at the back overlooking a quiet square with a lovely bathroom with stonework everywhere. Just lovely. Our friends were in the front and for them their experience was not the same. A very noisy street until 4.00am and then the street cleaners and a stall setting up meant they had no sleep, meanwhile we were happily unaware of this. The breakfast in the morning was quite basic with a selection of danish and croissant. Maybe some more traditional Italian meats and cheeses with fresh fruit would have been a nice addition. Hard though when there are only 4 rooms as you could have a lot of wasted uneaten food. My husband and I were happy with the choice offered. The location is ideal. We were dropped off outside the door in a taxi and collected at the same point. Restaurants, the walls and all the sights are walking distance. A beautiful property in a stunning location. Lucca was a delightful visit and we are so pleased we added it to our stay.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness

I'm surprised by all of the positive reviews here. It's a charming place in a good location but overall disappointing. It's way too loud to sleep at night. The beds are old and uncomfortable. The sheets were old and stained, it looked like old blood splatter on the sheets. Breakfast was just coffee and a few bad pastries. It's not a hotel, it's an apartment with separated rooms. Defiantly needs better beds and fresh sheets and towels.
