This is a good spot, only 300m from the old city gates. They have their own parking space that holds about 5 cars. Their breakfast is decent although the coffee from a machine leaves something to be desired (petty detail). Staff is very nice and helpful, their english is very good. I Would return and recommend!

The Villa San Donato worked well for us. It had free parking for our rental car (a big plus!), friendly, English speaking staff. Italy does not have as many English speakers as other countries in Europe. The location is but a short walk through the gate to wonderful Lucca. The big breakfast was served outside in the garden and had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lucca in Villa San Donato is a splendid Liberty-style villa a few steps from the historic walls of Lucca, where the composer Giacomo Puccini was born. The villa has been carefully restored, but taking care of preserving its original features: the grit floors, the capitals of the antique windows in traditional Tuscan style, without forgetting the modern amenities: free wifi, LCD TV and independent heating.The rooms, all equipped with private bathroom and carved in their original size are furnished in a simple and functional way and will make you feel the historical atmosphere of the city. The bed and breakfast is decorated with a beautiful and well-kept garden, where in summer you can enjoy yor outdoor breakfast which can also be requested gluten-free or sugar-free, or simply sip a good wine produced in the hills of Lucca. The private parking and proximity to the city center, reachable on foot in five minutes, will give you the chance to finally forget the stress of traffic and just experience the city as the ''real'' Lucca. ... more   less
