This is a 14 century building, and it looks it. Dark gloomy room. Little to no lighting, stone in the shower, old mattress and old sheets, bad pillows. You feel like you are in their living room , with a dog and toys on the floor, old furniture, . The smallest T V ( maybe 12' . the only nice thing was the staff. Not worth going to Lucca. This is a really sad place for $200.00 with a great breakfast !

The owners are a young couple who take pride in running their Bed and Breakfast. The B& B is quite charming and in a 14th century palazzo. Although it is difficult to find, that is typical of Lucca because the twisting and winding streets. Don't worry though, you are only a phone call away. We were quite impressed with the breakfast of eggs to order, cappuccinos and a buffet of fresh cheeses, salami, cakes and fresh fruits. The rooms are beautiful and spacious and very clean!! We stayed in the triple suite. The owners Guilio and Gaia speak very good English if that is a concern of anyone. They are very willing to help you with places to eat, getting to the train or the bus stop etc. We walked to the train station from the hotel. Can't think of one thing negative about staying at La Romea.

We had booked 2 nights at La Romea in Lucca however we ended up staying 9 nights due to the problem with the Icelandic vulcano. We had the most wonderful time at La Romea and the service was fantastic! We had to extend our stay three times during our time in Lucca due to the vulcano but Gaia and Giulio at La Romea were more than helpful. The rooms were absolutely beautyful and placed directly in the center of the historic citycenter of Lucca. We will stay at La Romea whenever we go to Lucca and we highly recommend it to anybody.

The Blue Room was the largest of the rooms offered at La Romea. It was listed as a quad room,, but this is only true if you are traveling with your kids. They will bring in a couple of twin beds. Our problem was...we were two couples and made the stay a bit crowded. Other than that, this was an excellent B&B. The Blue Room was very large as was the unique bathroom. The breakfast was the best of our 13 day trip to Italy. The biggest problem with Lucca is parking. You cannot park within the actually city walls...so it's a hassle to drive to their B & B ...drop off the luggage and find a place to park many minutes from the lodging. I would say the process of check in (when dealing with the parking) was about an hour. But don't hold that against La Romea. That would be the case with any stay within the historic city center. Once you are in and situated...it's a great city to visit. The La Romea was an excellent stay.

We were very pleased with our accomodation and with the walled city of Lucca. Giulio and Gaia were excellent hosts and the breakfasts included eggs done the way we wished, fresh fruit salad,yogurt,tomatoes and basil,cheese, ham and a variety of breads and toasts. They were the best breakfasts we had on our holiday. The room was clean and the bathroom large, clean and well stocked with shampoos,soap etc. Giulio and Gaia were most helpful with directions, making restaurant reservations, checking on bus schedules and calling for a taxi on our departure. We have nothing but positive experiences and comments about La Romea in Lucca.

La Romea was an ideal place to stay in Lucca. We were directly in the center of the walled city, within a 10 minute walk of everything. The innkeepers were absolutely wonderful. They helped us recover lost luggage, provided us with a great breakfast every day, and assisted us with our sightseeing plans. Our room (the suite) exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for us and our two children. We would absolutely return. Advice: Enjoy Lucca! Plan on spending at least a few days there.

It started with the host showing up within 3 minutes, not the 5 promised to pick us up from the parking. Every other aspect of our stay exceeded expectations also. Lucca and La Romea was our favorite part of our vacation, because of the lovliness of the place and the graciousness of the host and hostess. It was such a contrast from the subsequent hotels that we stayed in. We loved it! Larry, Lysa, and Jessica Ayres

This is a lovely, lovely B&B with wonderful hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. The location is also superb, right in the middle of Lucca. The only reason I won't say any more is because if this hotel becomes as popular as it deserves to be, we won't be able to book in next time we return!

As a couple not new to Italy but new to Lucca we were really delighted with the quality and service provided by Giulio and Gaia (proprietors)in this central location. The feel is that of a "family home", without the intrusiveness. The accomodation is both spacious and authentic. It is an ideal place to stay to explore Lucca. We woud personally recommend it to family and friends without hesitation, and will be back.

Very nice informal hotel at an A location in the centre of Lucca. We were picked up from and brought to a parking outside the walls, good service. Nicely decorated rooms. A bath would have been nice for that price of 135 euro though, but it was a big room.

La Romea was one of the nicest places we stayed in during 6 weeks in Italy. Guilio and Gaia were extremely friendly and helpful while we were there and also in our e-mails. They made dinner suggestions and reservations for us as well getting bus schedules and any other information we needed. The room and bath were huge and the whole place was beautifully decorated by Gaia. It was very well located within the old city walls and close to all the sights. I would stay there again. Request the red suite if you want something really special. All the rooms we saw were great.

Our stay at La Romea was just wonderful. Giulio and Gaia were very helpful and informative. Giulio actually met our car loaded our luggage into his and showed us where to park. They were excellent hosts and we had the best breakfast in the two weeks we spent in Italy. Our location was just perfect b/c we were right next to Via Fillungo and the center of Lucca. I would certainly return to La Romea if I go back to Lucca.

How to reach La Romea Residenza d'Epoca

La Romea Residenza d'Epoca is within easy reach of the motorway. You can enter the historic centre with the car and once you arrive at the reception for check-in the number plates of your car will be registered for ZTL authorization.
When you leave the motorway you must follow the indication for centro. At a certain point you will see the ancient walls of the city on your right. The name of the streets to follow are Viale Papi and Viale Carlo Del Prete.
First you will arrive to Porta S.Anna but do not enter through that gate. In Lucca there are 6 porte (gates) but each one leads to differentareas of the historic centre.You will then arrive to Porta S.Donato there is a traffic light and you must go straight ahead (not right).Continue on driving and the next gate will be Porta S. Maria.
You can enter even if there is the ZTL sign. Cross the square going straight ahead and take the narrow street. Go along this little street (Via Fillungo) and then gostraight in Via Santa Gemma Galgani. Drive until theend of this street ( about 300mt ), where you will see in front of you the Lu.C.C.A. museum. Turn right in Via della Fratta, and at the end of it turn left. You are in Via Antonio Mordini (or Via Nuova, they are the same street). Take the fourth street on your left, Via Carmine, and at a certain point on your right you will see a square with a car park (but only for residents). On the left side of GIGI's Trattoria there is a little street, go along for 20 metres, turn left and you will be in front of another restaurant. Turn left and after 20 metres on your right you will see a little church, stop in front of it. La Romea Residenza d'Epoca is at the first floor of the antique building in front ofthe church. There is a big green door with a bell.
After dropping off the luggage the hotelier will show you the parking area (charges apply) closest to the B&B.
If you have a GPS system, from Piazza Santa Maria try to insert Piazza delCarmine, but not Via Sant'Andrea or Vicolo delle Ventaglie because it will not work.
