No emergency escape from 2nd and 3rd floor. Seems there was not installed a fire...

Antica Residenza Santa Chiara is centrally located in Lucca, a perfect position, within the walls but still accessible by car. Quiet surroundings, nice old house, but insufficient sound isolation between rooms. Good breakfast and very friendly service.

We enjoyed our stay at Santa Chiara. Jessica was very helpful with suggestions and recommendations for restaurants etc. We chose the quadruple room although there were only 2 of us and the extrs space was much appreciated. Ventilation in the bathroom was not too good but it is a property in an old building. Overall we thought it very good.

The hotel is very well located, you can walk and be in the centre of the city in 5 mins time. We were 2 adults and 2 children and had one very large room. I suggest to Book parking as you can let the car just in front of the hotel where there is room for 3 cars only; breakfast was ok, could chose a nice variety of food. Lucca is a very nice city, I suggest renting bikes, they have many types according to the age of the child, and have a tour along the walls.

Nice B & B, good location a little outside the most crowded streets. Breakfast was very good, better than expected. During our stay the air condition did not work properly and switch off every 30 minutes. It made the rooms too hot, and the space offered for 4 persons were too small.

This B&B served our needs well. It was clean and spacious, with fresh decor. The hostess was pleasant and helpful. The location was a bit noisy and the breakfast eating area was a bit unusual - a tented-in back patio that one entered by leaving the residence and walking around the corner. It was a bit chilly, but the breakfast was very good. We would probably not return to this site, now knowing a bit about Lucca and other options.

Lucca is a fantastic place which we really loved. This B&B was really well located and a small hotel with a lot of character. The staff not being there at times meant we did not really benefit from their presence and created difficulties when we arrived in the heat of the day.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We had the room for four and it had a small private balcony that lead to the breakfast area that was really pretty. Our room was very pretty too. We only stayed one night but it was a very pleasent relaxing night. We rented bikes at a rental place near by that the staff with there great english directed us to. Breakfast was good. Would recommend and revisit here.

Everything about the Inn was exceptional. The room was large, beautiful and clean. The location is ideal (5 minute walk to the train yet central to everything in the old town). I will definitely return when revisiting Lucca.

3 months prior to arriving we had booked our room yet when we arrived we were told there was a "problem" with our room and were given a smaller one! When questioned we discovered someone checking in a day earlier had insisted on having our room over their pre-booked one. I consider that very poor customer relations/service. Could definitely supply more fresh fruit at breakfast, too many sweet things and not enough savoury available for breakfast. Listing says ironing board available, but when requested did not have cover - had to use blanket instead.
