“Cheap option close to the centre”

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. The apartment is on the ground floor so no steps to negotiate with luggage. Inside it is simple accommodation with the basics provided. The colour scheme, pink and white vertical stripes is, well ....... different, and could do with a professional re-do. The sitting area is reasonably spacious (but could do with a coffee table) but it is the only place to store luggage; the dining table seats four comfortably; the kitchenette is tiny, with a sink next to a two-burner cooktop and fridge underneath, but with no bench space at all, and it is really only useful for very basic cooktop cooking by one person at a time. However, all the necessities for cleaning plus tea/coffee/sugar/salt/pepper/soap/bathroom requisites etc are provided in abundance, and even table cloths. The bed is on the mezzanine level and takes up most of the space, with a lamp and one bedside table. There are a few shelves to unpack clothes but no hanging space at all. The bathroom adjoining is small but very modern and very functional. Wi-fi worked perfectly up and downstairs. The hostess, Veronica, and her colleague Marco, were extremely friendly and helpful. The apartment is a short walk to the main shopping street. There's an automatic laundry 30 metres from the apartment and a quite reasonable restaurant (Buralli) across the road. As we were staying for 4 nights, the lack of a cupboard for clothes and the minimal kitchenette were negatives for us, but anyone on a one-two night stay mightn't be bothered. In all other respects it was good and but for the storage and kitchen would have warranted a higher rating from us.

“Good value & ideally located”
Reviewed November 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights in September. The owner, Veronica, picked us up from the bus station on arrival, although we were a party of 4 and this required two trips in her small car - big cars are not suited to the streets of Lucca! It soon became apparent why she likes to do this - the apartments are located in an old building with no signage outside, so would be difficult to find on your own!

We rented both of the apartments, & they are accessed via a large entrance hall, which does need some decoration and attention. However the apartments themselves are clean and spacious enough, and you need to remember that the building itself is around 600 years old. It must be said that there were renovations under way to the rear garden area while we were there, with workmen coming and going during the day, and once this work is finished, the apartments will no doubt be a very appealing place to stay at.

The bedrooms are upstairs on a mezzanine floor overlooking the lounge areas, and the apartments are nicely decorated and furnished throughout, with basic kitchen facilities. The beds were very comfortable. The front apartment is the best one, as the bathroom is on the same floor as the bedroom, and the wi-fi (strong signal) is available on both floors. In the rear, the bathroom is downstairs, and wi-fi is only available downstairs.

Location is excellent, in a quiet corner of inner Lucca, with many restaurants and bars, and central Lucca, within a short walk. The restaurant opposite is well worth a try, with some good set menu options.

Overall, a very good option if you want slightly cheaper but central self catering accommodation in Lucca. Veronica was a very welcoming host, and will give you any information you need. She also arranged to take us back to the bus station when we left. She had contacted us the week before to advise us of the renovation work during our stay, and offered us a discount if we wanted to retain our booking, which was nice.

Gentile Mattia,
Grazie per la tua recensione. Come ti avevo detto, L'appartamento in questione è per 2/3 persone in base ai letti e alla sua grandezza . è prevedibile che per 4 risulti di conseguenza un po' piccolo. Indubbiamente necessita di un rinnovamento, ma questo è anche giustificativo del prezzo contenuto.
