Wonderful friendly B&B in the heart of Lucca.

B&B Evelina was the perfect first stop in a 2-week Tuscany trip.

The owners are very friendly and helpful, our room was spacious and comfortable, and the location in the center of the walled town is perfect.

Breakfast on the balcony was lovely (as is the view of Lucca's rooftops and clock tower) and the three well-appointed bathrooms (down the hall) were clean and readily accessible. Not recommended for those who can't climb stairs since the B&B is several flights up.

Nice B&B in convenient location.

I stayed at the B&B Evelina for two nights. My room was lovely, with a very comfortable bed. Shared bathroom. Simona and Guilio are wonderful hosts.

The B&B is in the town center and very easy to find. It is on the third floor with no elevator, but Guilio was kind enough to help me with my luggage when I arrived and departed. Delicious breakfasts.

A delightful B&B in LUCCA.

We stayed at B&B Evelina in Lucca, in May 2012 & would return happily at less than a moment's notice.

What we loved:

- Tastefully decorated rooms

- An outstanding brekkie that included Italian chocolate cake with a shortcrust & home-made plum & mandarin jam (Martha Stewart would have been impressed)

- Warm hosts (Simona & Giulio) who felt like friends and were never intrusive

- An excellent location, in the centre of the city and close to excellent restaurants

- Lovely bed linen

- Free wifi

- Located in a 300 year old building (fascinating)

The only thing that could have been better was if there were an elevator (but they're hard to find in 300 year old buildings!). Simona & Giulio helped us with our luggage, which was very kind.

We were a group of 5 and rented 3 rooms in May. The price, at that time, was E75 for the doubles and E60 for our single person. For the amenities, quality of fittings, excellent hosts etc; this was a bargain.

We would happily return, even if the price was 30% higher...

Just delightful, a real gem.
