“La Mimosa, September 2011”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

A fantatsic hotel, the position is outside of Lucca town but only a five minute walk away. The staff are extremely helpful, the breakfast is excellent, and the rooms cannot be faulted. There is a discount at a local restaurant, which serves regional specialities. The whole experience cannot be faulted.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front which was quiet the shutters are extremely efficient at eliminating noise...

I loved the location and the manager could not have been nicer! He recommended a wonderful dinner spot (that gave us a discount due to our hotel) and our room was perfect. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

We stayed for a fortnight in the La Tosca Rooms and found it to be one of our happiest holidays.
It was in the centre of the city and of course there was noise from the hip bar next door to the rooms but it was immaculately clean, compact, air conditioned, next to all the action and easy to reach from the bus, train and airport.
I can not recommend it enough. We had the Sao Paulo Apartment with two adults and two kids.
There is a double room and a fold away couch in the living area. The living area also has a big table and chairs.
The kitchen, which fits inside an Ikea style cupboard was fantastically clean with every utensil required. There was a hardware store right on the street so anything missing could be simply found.
There is a baker shop on the doorstep and a grocery store a few steps away.
We spent a little time in the La Mimosa and also found it to be of superb standards.
I am very happy to be emailed about this property.
Hire bikes from the store next to the bed and breakfast La Mimosa and see the town from the walls.

Room Tip: Contact Guiseppe directly at La Mimosa Bed and Breakfast

La mimosa is a B&B located a 5 minute stroll from the walled part of Lucca. Without doubt the star attraction of this place is the incredible hospitality of Guiseppe, the manager of the B&B. A perfect host, he will ensure that you are looked after during your stay. The B&B is comprised of a small number (I think four) of rooms that are very clean and comfortable. Road noise may be an issue for some people, although that settles down later in the evening. We chose to close the window and sleep with the air conditioner on, and that turned out to be fine for us. Our room had an ensuite WC and shower. Breakfast was a simple but nonetheless fulfilling arrangement, capped off by excellent coffee made to order by Guiseppe. We had a hire car during our stay, so it proved very convenient to stay outside the walled area of Lucca and avoid the traffic restrictions applying there. La Mimosa has push bikes available to ride around Lucca, and taking a couple of hours to ride the Lucca City walls is one of the highlights of a stay at Lucca. We also used La Mimosa's bikes to ride to eateries in the evening. Lucca is very well positioned for a trip to Tuscany, and Guiseppe will point you in the right direction for the best places to see in your available time. We would stay at La Mimosa again without any hesitation.

From the moment of our arrival, the hosts at La Mimosa were at our service with everything we needed. From a cold beverage at our arrival to helping us with our luggage to giving us pointers to visit sites not on the typical guidebook, this place had it all.

Comes free with WiFi, fantastic morning breakfast, free parking is close by, and a short walk to the city walls and the historic center of Lucca, this was a great place to stay. The room was very well setup, with a nice clean, comfortable bed, large bathroom and shower, and small refrigerator to hold drinks. In addition to all of this, the place was very well decorated with old-world charm.

We will definitely stay here again if our travels take us to Lucca again.

We stayed at their annex location which was PERFECT inside the city walls and an easy walk from their B&B, but keep your luggage simple if you're only staying a night or two as it is still a 5-10 minute walk. Free parking near their B&B helped a lot! We had two apartments booked: "San Paolina" was billed as the apartment for 4 people, while "Corte Fiorentina" was billed for 3 people. Both were gorgeously charming, spacious & clean but curiously, the 3 person apartment overlooking interior courtyards had 2 queen beds in 2 bedrooms (and a pull-out sofa) while the 4 person apartment overlooking the bustling street (filled at night with young people enjoying the evening so a bit loud but gave ambience) had one bedroom with queen and a pull-out sofa in the living room. Both were lovely, though and we were thrilled with the location. Note of caution when booking: even if your confirmation from Venere states "includes free breakfast & bike rental", the annex apartments do not include that as they are apartments with a small kitchenette (fridge, 2 burners, dishes/pots/utensils). BUT, La Mimosa's hospitality was impeccable b/c we stated our disappointment at the realization there wouldn't be bikes for apartment dwellers and they said that if we came back to their main B&B (outside the walls) and they had some of their 5 bikes available, we could use them. Lo and behold, they had 4 available when we came the next morning and lent them to us, so we only had to rent a few (for 2.50E/hr from the rental place near Porta Santa Anna) instead of for our whole party. Considering we had such a large party (and I suppose we can't expect them to have bikes for everyone who could possibly stay at once), it was a nice gesture on their part that helped counter the disappointment at the misleading language on the booking confirmation from Venere. Also, as we were checking out, they offered their excellent cappucinos and juices to our party from the breakfast area (which looked very nice for the hotel guests). Regarding internet: the annex is contracted to them from "La Tosca Rooms" and they have a login available but the whole time we were there, we couldn't get the log-in to work. They gave us what they were given by the apartment owners, but it didn't work for us (trying every version or "l", "i" or "1") which is actually the story for a lot of places touting "internet point" in Italy (including cafes and autostrada rest stops). I chose this hotel based on reviews and the AC (worked great in "Sao Paolina" unit, not as well in "Corte Fiorentina" unit) & internet amenities listed. Great service all around from La Mimosa, but as in most of Italy, internet is a spotty issue and we didn't have any at the annex. Knowing these items now, however, we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If traveling with 4 people, Corte Fiorentina is larger than Sao Paolina unit at

We stayed in this B&B in April 2011 for one night. We booked the night before and chose this B&B for price & good reviews.

We arrived in Lucca on a rainy Sunday and were met by the proprietor. He was so friendly and got a map for us to recommend all the sights (& restaurants) in Lucca. He also had two bikes ready for us to use but it was raining so heavily that we had no choice but to leave them.

The room was lovely - huge, with two double beds and a big bathroom area. We loved the room with it's red décor. Breakfast was great too with a varied buffet selection and some very good coffee.

The B&B is located just outside the city walls (about 5 min walk), so a great location. We took the restaurant recommendation from the owner and we were not disappointed - lovely little spot with only a few tables (can't remember the name). We will definitely be recommending La Mimosa to family & friends and will go back to Lucca as soon as we can!
