“Photos don't always tell the full story”
Reviewed 3 October 2011

We had three (3) nights at this B & B in September this year (2011). I would have to say the photos on the internet don't show how tired looking the rooms really are. They could do with a complete update, the bathrooms particularly were outdated and not very clean. There was a definite smell in the room which management tried to cover with 'deodorises', unfortunately this just added to the problem. Overall the area around the B & B was awash in garbage and graffiti making it the least appealing place we stayed.

We answer with the preceding review :
...This b&b is located just outside the walls of the beautiful city of Lucca, and possess everything a good bed and breakfast should have. It was clean, comfortable, great hosts, and excellent breakfast. We stayed twice on our tour of Tuscany and this was definitely our BEST STAY!

This b&b is located just outside the walls of the beautiful city of Lucca, and possess everything a good bed and breakfast should have. It was clean, comfortable, great hosts, and excellent breakfast.

We stayed twice on our tour of Tuscany and this was definitely our best stay! The brothers Gabriele and Daniele, the proprietors, were a mine of helpful information for the area.

We were met by Gabrielle, one of the brothers who operates the B$B. He greeted us as if we were family. He pulled out a map to point out the sites in the city. THe hotel was clean, the breakfast substantial and convenient to the center of the walled town.

My husband and I spent four nights at Ai Cipressi in early August. This lovely B&B is a great value. It has big rooms, a delicious self-serve breakfast and a sunny ambiance that perfectly reflects Tuscany. It is situated within easy walking distance from Old Lucca, which allows one to enjoy the old city all day long and then retire to the B&B for a bit of calm and relaxation. The staff was cheerful and accommodating, spoke both English and French, and was ready to help with anything. I highly recommend this establishment!

Very clean and basic room but there was no air conditioning even though their website says they have A/C. They do not turn it on until it is "warm" and after a technician had insected the unit. When we were there it was very warm but they refused to turn on the A/C. If you plan to stay when it is warm, make sure the A/C has been activated and is running correctly, or stay somewhere else. This was our only complaint about the hotel. Could not sleep due to the oppressive temperature in the room with no cross ventilation. The location is great and the breakfast was very nice including a toaster, raisin bread and juices. There was free secure parking. There is an outdoor walkway in front of the rooms with small tables/chairs. We enjoyed a nice restaurant within the walls called Gli Orti Di Via Elisa. The manager gave us a partial refund due to the A/C issue which was very nice.

There was a mix up with our booking and the staff was ever so helpful in finding us another hotel for the night. Great location (just 5 mins walk from the city walls, limited free parking. Delicious breakfast - don't forget to try the Luccanese bread!
