stayed for one night only, however the two brothers running the place were very helpful. without boooking and with a dog there were no problems at all. they also adviced a good restaurant where we got a discount (a unbelieveable high) for some proper italian food (with Lucca specialities included). the room was very nice, very big bed, nice interior....

If your style is five star hotels, this is not for you. However, staying in Lucca and wanting a sense of place at an affordable price, this guest house works well. Although breakfast is advertised on their web site, we could not find so much as a cup of coffee. However, about a block away is a fine coffee bar;... More

When we arrived, I thought the place was a bit dark, including the room we stayed in, although it was a good size. Bathroom was ok and shower wasn't the best, but it worked. However, water not so hot. Breakfast was a good spread, but the coffee comes from a machine which I am not keen on. We stayed for... More

We were so looking forward to our stay at San Frediano but were sadly disappointed. We arrived to find everything locked up and nobody to meet us. The rooms weren't great and the bathroom very small and musty smelling. The biggest plus for the guest house is their location - it's perfectly situated in the old city! It lacks the... More

brilliant location in the centre of Lucca. If you want luxury this is not for you - but to experience the real Tuscany, this is a perfect B&B

We had some problems with this hotel but they did compensate us. We had a room with a private bath. Aside from these problems, the showering situation was a bit difficult for us as we did not want to take a bath. There was a showr attachment that you could use but there was no shower curtain so even trying... More

Guesthouse San Frediano is a bit of a find. The staff were fantastic, particularly Vittorio who was extremely helpful with my 21 year old nephew who has Downs Syndrome. This is not a luxury place, but at 70 euros for an ensuite bedroom, that is not to be expected. The rooms are clean and cool and have everything you could... More

The staff is helpful and we like the self-serve continental breakfast in the room. Excellent location in terms of its proximity to major highlights. However, it can get a little noisy to sleep.

“Some rooms do not have a bathroom, so you have to share a rather large and not unpleasant one down the hall. Make sure you enquire about this if you don't like sharing.”
