    There did not seem to be any staff there after hours which was a small concern.

    Great B&B close to the Lucca walls. We found it ideal just a short walk tot he walled town and in a remarkably quiet area. Lovely Breakfast room was great to wake up to each day and the staff were very helpful.

    The location is fantastic, only a quick walk outside the city walls. This make it easy to reach by car (incl. free parking at hotel). And when the car is parked you can have a romantic walk into the old city and enjoy great food and wine. We will be back again soon :-)

    If I have one very small criticism it is that perhaps tea/coffee making facilities could be made available in either the rooms or the lounge area which would make a big difference.

    Location is excellent, an easy 5-10 minute walk to the city gates. Rooms and garden area are really nicely done and the guest house has a small but perfectly functional lounge area. The owners were particularly helpful in guiding us to the attractions of Lucca and were very welcoming, really nice.

    Villa Romantica doesn’t have on-site parking so Max gave us a room at Villa Anna instead for the same tariff.

    Review provided for the sister property: Villa Anna. Max is an amazingly attentive and helpful B&B operator. He went out of his way to ensure our stay in Lucca was perfect. The breakfast and coffee were superb. The rooms are large, modern and spotless.

    Very friendly staff, good location to explore Lucca which itself is worth a visit! Beautiful! A little disappointed that the hot tub and pool were not available as the weather was beautiful- we travelled late sept/ early Oct but they looked like they had been closed a while. Breakfast was very adequate! Taxis extremely expensive- avoid if you can.

    A well-run, and perfectly organised small hotel which looks after its guests very well.

    • Stayed 10 nights

    Nothing really. A few small details could be improved on, like the stair carpet showing signs of wear which rather lets the place down, as everything else is very well kept. But constant useage is probably the cause, which just shows that there are plenty of people who love staying here, and have used the place. Otherwise it's all good.

    A very welcoming entrance area, complete with a logburner fire for those cold nights to come. Lovely rugs and a friendly feeling to the place. We had a suite, with a small balcony, and it was great to have the space with a living room area with a sofa, as well as the bedroom. The bed was really comfortable, firm but gave us a good night's sleep. We were surprised and delighted to find that sheets and towels were changed daily, with extra towels left as standard. A really nice, deluxe touch. The staff are great, friendly but unobtrusive. Altogether it's a perfect place for a relaxing stay in Lucca, as it's only a short walk from the walled town.

    We loved the breakfast and the freshly ground coffee was the best I had in Italy. The location of the property was quiet, outside the walls, but within easy walking distance. The continental breakfast was good and you had the option of a boiled egg too. It had a homely feel, especially with the resident cat. There was a secluded swimming pool and pool towels were available.

    Nice old house with romantic breakfast
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Double Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    The swimming pool is actually in the neighbor's garden (but very nearby) and the furniture there is old and clumsy. The airconditioning in our room was broken (leakage of water dripping for a few nights). It was repaired on the last day but still it seems that replacing it will be the only solution. Although the location is really good, if one cannot stand the noise of a football stadium, one needs to bring airplugs.

    The location is really good (easy to reach by car and then the entrance of the city center through one of the gates in the surrounding wall is just 300 meters). It is a nice old house with a lot of character. The breakfast is super good and the staff is very friendly.
