Very good, very friendly and helpful staff. Getting there is a bit confusing since you have to drive through limited zones, but the hotel takes care of this by registering your car with the local authorities on arrival. Excellent location at a reasonable price! Good breakfast.

Great stay at nice B&B

I had a great two night stay. The room was clean and large. It wasn’t hot enough for air conditioning so I slept with the window open and woke up to birds chirping. I was happy with the location as b&b was less than a five minute walk from restaurants, bike rentals and the main entrance to the city. It was less than ten minutes to most of the other landmarks, except the train station, which was a 20 minute walk as it was on the other side of town. Staff was pleasant.

It is very nicely located and near the bus stop and walking distance to central Lucca. My only complaint was that it was chilly; I would have enjoyed a little heat in the room. The breakfast was superb and the staff very friendly and helpful.
