Nice B&B located in the old city, short walk to all shops, restaurants and the Lucca wall with tasty breakfast and free secure parking right next door. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only problem if you aren't very mobile is the two full flights of stairs to get to the B&B, could be a major problem if you don't know...

Make sure you book their beautiful large apartment with high ceilings. Lots of details and warm Tuscan colors. Sleep under the old rafters and feel the history! Also the best breakfast buffet on our Italian car trip.

When we arrived we were taken to the "new" Villa Gemma di Elena, located just at the rear of the car park, and wow! The villa has 5 rooms, all lovely (I had a look) but the best has to be the Suite la Mura...which we stayed on for 4 nights. A huge, bright, freshly painted and refurbished room with...

My partner and I spent 5 nights at La Gemma Di Elena in May 2016, We found it Quirky and basic but more importantly warm, welcoming and very clean, the staff are helpful and friendly and breakfast is more than adequate with a reasonable choice of meats, cheese, cereals and fruit and as much tea and coffee as you desire....

Room was good, bathroom a bit cold and moist. At nighg its a bit too cold in the room. Breakfast with great expresso was a bit too simple. However a...

Pros: It was easy to find with the signage once we knew the street from using Google maps. We stayed in the Pablo room, my friend and I slept in separate beds instead of the one large one, and the twin bed was small but comfortable from what my friend said. The area was very quaint and decorated nice, with...

It was really good to be there, more heating would be helpful, breakfaat and service was very good, parking facility is excellent! The price and the service was proportional, so I recommend it to everyone, who likes Toscana and wants to be in the heart of Lucca!

Pefect location, fascinating building, warm welcome. Reasonable breakfast. Very good value for money. Not for those who have problems with stairs,as it is up a fairly steep flight of stairs or who are fussy about decor. The shower was excellent, making ineresting use of the available space. There is no air-con and as it was humid we had to sleep...

“Each room has its own colour scheme and design features, so it's better to check the B&B website where they are all listed. Anna room is spacious and nice, in warm yellow tones, overlooking the quiet courtyard. It opens right into the breakfast lounge and is next to the kitchen, so you may hear some sounds in the morning. On the other hand, the wifi signal is solid in the room, because it is close to the main router.”
