“Beautiful and central”
Reviewed September 8, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

person found this review helpful

This apartment is gorgeous, central and very well appointed. Guissepe welcomed us and provided all information needed to help make our stay perfect. Close to attractions, the wall, excellent restaurants and delis. We even had two bicycles for our use. If you want to ‘live like a local’ this apartment is it. We love cooking and found the kitchen a pleasure to cook in. We will be back.

“Beautiful centrally located apartment”
Reviewed September 7, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Our travelling style is to find a quality centrally located apartment so that we ‘can live like locals’, visit local markets, cook wonderful meals and just have fun. This apartment ticks all the boxes, is beautifully appointed and Guiseppe is a wonderful host. The apartment even came with bicycles! We fitted right in with the locals. Also, Guiseppe’s welcome and orientation is a 5. All our questions were answered and excellent information and suggestions provided. If you are considering a stay in Lucca, this apartment is it. We will be back. Thank you Guiseppe.

“Ideal Central Location for Exploring Lucca”
Reviewed June 13, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We rented Apartment Giacomo for a month, and found its location to be great for exploring all that Lucca has to offer. Only steps from Piazza San Michele, the apartment is also in quick walking distance to the landmark Torre Guinigi, and even closer to the Torre Delle Ore. Easy access to the walls, the Botanical Gardens, to rental bikes, restaurants, bars and cafes, grocery stores and the fruit and vegetable market made it a fine place for immersion into the daily life of Lucca. The apartment is located on a private courtyard, which keeps the street noise to a minimum. The neighbors we happened to meet in the apartment building itself were quite friendly. Giuseppe, the apartment owner, was very nice and responsive to our questions.

The apartment itself suited our needs. The air conditioning provided respite on one of the hotter days. The actual kitchen/cooking area is quite small, but Giuseppe installed a new stove top the first day that we were there, and we made some fine meals, despite the size!

As with any place, there were a few negatives: The bathroom itself could have been cleaner when we arrived, particularly the shower area. As in most of Italy, the windows have no screens, so we rarely kept them open, due to the mosquitoes which would come in when we did.

The courtyard, although keeping out most of the noise, has an archway to the main street, where people tend to gather and leave litter behind. When our guests were visiting, it was so bad I had to go out with a broom and sweep the area myself before their arrival. Garbage is picked up on a daily basis and sorted by different colored bags (you are responsible for doing this on your own at the apartment; bags are provided, as well as the daily schedule for what type of garbage goes out). The garbage (for all the apartments in the courtyard) is then left at the entrance to the archway into the courtyard. As you can imagine, this does not help with the litter problem.

Overall, it was a very good experience, and we would recommend it to those looking for a central location for a reasonable cost.

“Great apartment”
Reviewed November 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Sorry to take so long to write this. We stayed for a week in July 2016. We really loved this apartment and the city of Lucca. The apartment is great value for money - facilities and location excellent . Guiseppe is a pleasant ,helpful and unobtrusive host . The apartment is spotless, well- equipped for self- catering which was important to us. We hope to return at Easter 2017 and are really looking forward to it.

We were so happy with all aspects of our stay in this apartment.It meet all our needs ,and we found the location to be the biggest advantage. Extremely quiet and peaceful,yet we could walk out the door and be in the midst of all the action.
We loved the building very much.How often can you stay in an apartment filled with history and hundreds of years old. We highly recommend it for best enjoyment of beautiful Lucca

“Convenient apartment, great location but no AC at night”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our family stayed at Apartment Giacomo the second week of August. We loved discovering Lucca and the apartment was ideally located in the center of the town. The apartment is renovated, nicely decorated and conveniently apointed. Our hosts were very nice and gave us some good recommendations about the city.
However, a couple of important notes:
- the apartment is in a building that does not allow AC units to operate at night, so the AC automatically shuts off at 10:30p. This was an inconvenience for us because we were there during the heat of summer and sleeping when it's 25C/90F at night prooved challenging for all of us even with open windows (no breeze). This was a bad surprise as the AC was one of our main criteria for choosing an apartment and we weren't informed about this until we arrived. After I commnicated with the owner, he dropped off a fan which we could use in one of our rooms and helped a little.
- Like in many Italian cities, tourists cannot drive inside the city so you leave the car in a parking lot. If you want to park at the nearest free lot, expect to walk about 15min (+/- 5min if you have children or groceries).

“Wonderful location and very well presented apartment”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here in Lucca and couldn't have been happier with the apartment's location and all of the amenities that our host has provided for us. It was a very comfortable apartment and I would recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy Lucca to stay here. We loved the restaurants, the very accommodating and friendly locals and the beauty of the old town. I would recommend riding bikes around the wall as it was an experience we'll never forget. You can stop at one of the restaurants along the way and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. I'd also recommend the Puccini performances that are on every night, this was also a highlight.
