“Amazing B&B, central location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

First of all I would like to thank Claudio, the owner, for his warm welcome. He was extremely accommodating. We woke up late, after the breakfast hour, but he still sat us down and prepared lovely fresh orange juice and home made cappuccino for us as well as a very nice breakfast.

The location of the B&B is perfect for a week-end break in the lovely city of Lucca. The room we had was quiet and nice, with a very good shower.

The B&B is clean, charming and lively. I strongly recommend it!

is the perfect place to stay while exploring Lucca, and indeed, Pisa, and the Tuscan hills to the north. Al Tuscany is located in an historical building dating to the 1200's, but the accommodations are comfortable with ensuite bathrooms. Claudio, the owner, is there from morning to night, preparing breakfast (fresh-squeezed OJ, bruschetta, crostada, to name a few of the offerings) overseeing the cleaning and prepping of rooms, and greeting guests upon arrival. The suites are the largest rooms, and those of the mansarda offer a view of the famous Guinigi Tower. There is an elevator to get your bags up to the 3rd floor. Jerry, Claudio's old, but very welcoming black and white dog, will probably be the first to greet you when you alight from the acensore. Al Tuscany is a good place for couples or families as well as singles. Guests from all of Europe and the US stay at Al Tuscany over and over again.

Room Tip: Suites are bigger and located away from the street

My wife and I stayed here for one night as we passed through Lucca in October. I would echo what others have said. They have to buzz you in the door upon arrival and the B&B is on the top floor requiring a combination of steps and a small elevator. We had the room overlooking Via Cenami nearest the breakfast room (perhaps #4, not sure). The room was a little small and the antique furnishings functional.

The breakfast was the best we had on our entire trip. The owner was very patient with our late arrival due to train delays and insisted on helping us and another couple with getting back to the train station.

I'm not sure I would stay here for a longer stay because we prefer to rent apartments but it was fine for a shorter stay. Its location more than makes up for any shortcomings and it seems like an excellent value too.

We visited Lucca for a week in August 2011; with our 7 month old daughter. The staff and owner took excellent care of us; and we felt very welcome. The breakfast is excellent, and the staff also. The rooms are spacious; and with air condition and private bathroom. The B&B is located in the MIDDLE of the city center; so 20 feet from the main door, you are in one of the high-streets. Can be a bit difficult to find, but if you arrive in Lucca by train it is very easy to find it.

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Al Tuscany on the start of our Italian vacation. We stayed in two upper loft rooms, which were sufficient (although the slope ceiling did present some opportunity to bump your head). Claudio is an excellent host, and Marina couldn't have been any better in helping to make our stay so enjoyable. I would not hesitate to go back again.
