Fabulous 8.6 From 54 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great stay at nice B&B
I had a great two night stay. The room was clean and large. It wasn’t hot enough for air conditioning so I slept with the window open and woke up to birds chirping. I was happy with the location as b&b was less than a five minute walk from restaurants, bike rentals and the main entrance to the city. It was less than ten minutes to most of the other landmarks, except the train station, which was a 20 minute walk as it was on the other side of town. Staff was pleasant.

Would stay there again
Four nights in Luca at La Gemma while touring local area and the location was great, not too far from the bus or train stations. Room was clean and comfortable with a simple breakfast, only downside was extremely weak WiFi.

Dit verblijf ligt midden in hwt centrum. Ideaal verblijf om zo Lucca te ontdekken. Min puntje: Parkeren kost wel 10 euro per dag. Daarbij hadden we ook ontbijt geboekt,maar door covid 19 konden zij dit niet door laten gaan. Hier hadden we wel voor betaald maar werd verrekend met het parkeren... verder een prima fijn verblijf, met een goed bed en een fijne douche. Ruime kamers.

Una vera Gemma nel centro storico di Lucca
La Gemma di Elena è un B&B situato in una bella casa storica nel centro di Lucca (zona Chiesa San Francesco). Pulizia eccellente, cambio asciugamani quotidiano, colazione inclusa più che sufficiente. Le stanze sono dotate di Pinguino per condizionare l'aria. Ci sono armadio, comò e vari appoggi. Almeno due prese elettriche in camera e una in bagno. All'arrivo ti forniscono gratuitamente due bottigliette d'acqua per il primo giorno (abbiamo soggiornato tre notti). Unica pecca: nel bagno manca il bidet (avevamo la camera Flora), scelta legata sia al fatto che non è enorme (ma ristrutturato) sia probabilmente all'abituale clientela internazionale.
