The best of this hotel was the BREAKFAST, and the rooms are quite good as the location because is next to Lucca. on the other hand, say that the surroundings are quite ugly. If it's a romantic occassion it would be better to choose other option. This hotel is perfect for families. SPANISH: Lo mejor de la estancia fue la cercanía del hotel a Lucca y el desayuno de las mañanas :). Aunque los alrededores del hotel son bastante feos por lo que si se trata de una ocasion especial o romantica será mejor elegir otro hotel. Para familias es perfecto.

Property just outside city walls and would have been a little difficult to find if not for the local taxi driver. Adequate breakfast althougth there was no hot food. Some really good resturants in Lucca. We especially liked Il Giglio and Gigi's. Can hire bikes from B&B for €5 per day whereas charge in the city walls can cost €2.5 per hour!! Great to cycle round walls and city. Confirmation from Venere stated that there was a free shuttle bus from B&B to station but this was not he case. The proprietor has asked Venere to remove this statement in the past but to no avail. He did however give us a free lift to the station as a gesture of good will.

This bed and breakfast accommodation exceeded our expectations. We followed the map and followed the landmarks indicated, and bearing in mind that we were advised that it was off the main road, we had little difficulty in finding it. It was only 10 minute walk to Lucca and our landlords were very helpful in advising of places to visit and restaurants. We went to the Puccini concert which only last 45 minutes and was an enjoyable experience. The bedroom and bathroom were of a good size and adequately furnished. It was nice to have somewhere to sit out in the evening, although there wasn't a view. Breakfast was quite sufficient with plenty of hot water to make our own tea and coffee. If we are in the area again we would certainly use this accommodation.

This place was extremely hard to find as nothing indicated it was not on the main street and there is only a small sign saying the name that you cannot see while driving. The bathroom was definitely not as clean as it could be and there was such a strong vinegar smell in the towels. Not pleasant. Otherwise the room and breakfast were fine. (not sure I would consider a B & B, but hey, that could just be me) Seemed more expensive than it was worth.

First visit to Lucca. Spent a week at Ai Cipressi at end of August based on a friend's recommendation. Everything was as we expected, from the welcome we received, the advice given and the standard of service and accommodation. The only negative comment relates to the mediocre breakfast. A word of advice - hire a bicycle for at least a day, the best 5 euro I've spent for some time.

Located outside the walls within easy walking distance, this budget hotel was impeccably clean with extremely helpful staff. There were many thoughtful touches, including the possibility of discounted concert tickets, bicycle rentals, nice breakfast with fresh espresso. We enjoyed all of these. The rooms were modern and without much character, but were very convenient for our family with 2 full adjoining rooms for four of us. In the end, we were very comfortable and it was a great choice for us. We would definitely stay here again.

WE've been arround and this hotel is a nice surprise! Excellent situated small hotel. Owners are 100% volunteerly at your service. You feel that this hotel is one with a hart. Everything is personal and with a smile.Any question is answered with lots of info. Great breakfast room! Because all of this,You'll feel home. We had a great time in Lucca! Pitty it rained for 2 days, but that couldn't kill the charme of this interesting town. If you really want to discover it and take a time to enjoy you can spend 2 full covered days. We' where glad the hotel was situated on a small jump from the entrance of the South gate, so we always entered/left the town in a quit zone. Also enjoyed a small classical opera evening concert in a church due a tip of the owner. If we really must be critical? Just a sign outside at the road to say where the hotel entrance is..it's a drive-in entrance and located at a split of a one way road. That confuse people. We shall be back in Lucca!

We enjoyed staying here very much. Room was very clean, bed comfortable and bathroom spacious, however it was also very hot, the A/C didn't seem to work. Comfortable with the window open but not practical while sleeping. Drapes also did not block out enough light particularly in the morning. Breakfast was self serve, good and plentiful. Also liked their 'frigobar', drinks on the 'honor-system.' Really convient when we arrived late and were tired and thirsty! Note that they request you arrive during office hours. We accidently missed that fact but they provided us the key anyways and didn't cancel our reservation! Parking is limited in their lot but we were directed to a nearby church parking lot (also free). Convient walking distance to walled city of Lucca. We would love to stay there again! Thanks!

Motel-like with clean but uninspired rooms.

A good place for older and quieter travellers since there is little muffling of sound between rooms, at least on the ground floor.

Check in arrangements are very limited. We arrived on public transport one & a half hours before the reception opened at 3.30.p.m. Good cafe to visit round the corner but valuable time wasted. Lucca is a beautful town, on the level which is unusual in Tuscany! Good places to eat. Enjoyed a visit to the Botanical Gardens there. Very peaceful. Highlight was a Puccini Concert. Un forgettable. Hotel had posters but no info re ticket sales which we found out later were available from them. Visiting Italy to celebrate our Ruby wedding.

Circuler en voiture à Lucca étant quasi impossible, nous avons apprécié la situation de ce B&B, juste à l'extérieur des remparts. Mais il est un peu difficile à trouver: il faut prendre la rue en face de la porte Elisa (direction Sanctuaire Santa Gemma) et tourner à gauche Via di Tiglio. Le sanctuaire est juste à droite (grande église) et le n°126 est un peu plus loin à gauche,dans une petite cour intérieure. Accueil sympathique et compétent, chambre propre, calme, agréable et spacieuse, petit déjeuner copieux, nous avons été très satisfaits de notre séjour. Seule réserve: une porte entre notre chambre et celle des voisins. Heureusement, ils étaient discrets et non bruyants, sinon l'insonorisation de la chambre vis à vis de l'extérieur n'aurait pas servi à grand chose!

The two brothers that run this small hotel (it's not like a typical B&B)were charming - went out of their way for everyone, even drove us in their own car to pick up our car. The rooms were large, the bathrooms were great (large and clean). The hotel was just minutes from the walled town - it was a bit lonely at night with not much around the area - no lobby to speak of - but it was well worth the money and I would stay there again and highly recommend it. Lucca is a small town with not a lot of activity, so most everything closes at night.

The room and bathroom were of very good size with exceptionally good cupboard space for clothing. Our room had a small kitchen facility as well. The breakfast was adequate in a pleasant breakfast room. This small hotel was very well located close to a gate into the old city of Lucca although, I have to say it was actually quite difficult to find initially and a better map would be a helpful improvement. It was in a residential area of the city which meant it was close to a number of facilities including supermarket, shops, cafes, banks and post box which was ideal. The hotel offered modern, well looked after bicycles for hire at a very cheap rate of a Euro per day per cycle. The accommodation and facilities do not include frills but are very clean, well presented, well located and extremely good value for money. Most impressive of all was the very comprehensive briefing given by one of the partners who own the hotel. It covered the city, the mountain and coastal areas nearby, the entertainment, good eating, maps, bochures and anecdotal evidence. We stayed for six nights and really would not have got so much out of our stay had it not been for the most complete briefing I have ever received on arrival at a hotel anywhere else in the world. My wife and I were very grateful for that. I would have no hesitation in going there again and no hesitation about recommending the hotel to others. The other guests, by the way, seemed to agree. First class. Neil & Lesley Jones

It´s our first time in a bed & breakfast hotel and it is a really good experience. We had a long stay (5 nights)and during all of our stay we were very well supported by Grabriele e Daniele which became almost our brothers. They were great in order to give us a best stay as possible, giving a lot of information, places to go or to eat. Be sure next time on Toscana and in Lucca we will be back to Ai Cipressi. Congratulations for you both. I really recomend strongly the next guest will not be dissapointed.Very well located close to the walls with a thing that is a must in Italy, parking area.

We stayed at Ai Cipressi for two nights. It is a bit tricky to find. Here's a hint: look for where Via Romana branches off Via di Tiglio. Exactly opposite is the courtyard which leads to Ai Cipressi. There's also a sign where you have to go. The host Gabriele is very welcoming and friendly. His english is very good. He's happy to explain all the sights and events in the wonderful town of Lucca. Also, if you need some information from the internet, he'll be happy to look it up for you. As a service from the B&B, you can rent bikes for just 3€ per day! This is very convenient in Lucca, as you can cycle through the town and around on the town wall. Another service is a fridge near the reception, where you can buy drinks like water or beer for just 1€ at anytime. The B&B is located outside the historic center of Lucca, but it is just a 5 minute walk to get inside the wall. The rooms are big and nicely furnished. Also nothing to complain in the bathroom, everything was perfectly clean. There's air conditioning and you can set the room temperature to what you prefer. There's also satellite TV in the rooms, which gives you some german and english channels. The breakfast is the sweet italian style, but with some welcome additions, like cereals and fruit juice. Gabriele also tries to spoil you with tasty italian chocolate. If you want other things for breakfast, just tell him. Overall, we can highly recommend Ai Cipressi in every respect. Lucca is a wonderful town and is definitely worth staying some days longer than we did.

The rooms are off the main road but were well signposted. They are run by two brothers who were incredibly welcoming and very helpful and told us all about Lucca and where we ought to visit. The room itself was spotless, very nicely decorated and spacious. It felt like staying in someone's house rather than a bed and breakfast. Breakfast was included in the price and brought to the room by one of the brothers who purchased it from the local cafe -the choice was not huge but the quality was good. I would highly recommend staying here.
