I have stayed at Il Seminario twice during Lucca Comics and Games. I stayed in the building a block or so from the main building where breakfast is served.

The cold breakfast is great - pastries from a local patisserie, hard boiled eggs, a variety of meats and cheeses, yogurt, juice, espresso drinks. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived and we were offered pastries and cafe while we waited.

I slept on a couch pullout bed, which was comfortable enough. The wireless was strong at the beginning, hard to connect to at the end of my stay, but Lucca is packed during the Comics and Games, especially at the end, so that may have been the reason.

One note for Americans travelling to Lucca - there were no visits to the room by staff to take out garbage, replace towels, etc. I wish I'd asked at the beginning about how to go about disposing of our garbage (three people in the room for a week - our garbage can was overflowing by the end) and getting a new trash bag.

One suggestion for staff is the same I make at almost every hotel and B&B I stay in - install some hooks, shelves, or little tables in the bathroom. There were very few places to rest toiletries and clothing.

The location was great for walking around Lucca. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I booked one night at Il Seminario bed & breakfast while we were attending the Rolling Stones concert in Lucca. We were kindly greeted at the front desk and helped with parking our rental car in the secure lot next the property. Our room was very comfortable, nice shower, great bedding, etc. It was easy to navigate Lucca from the B&B and the staff was very helpful in making recomendations. Breakfast the following morning was wonderful: a beautiful spread of fresh and local prosciutto, cheeses, fruits, and granola.

Il Seminario Bed & Breakfast is a great choice to stay in Lucca. It is situated in a quiet location, is close to the wall & Porto San Pietro and easily walkable to any spot in the center. Staff is friendly and polite and very helpful. Breakfast is phenomenal....a great selection of items to choose from. The rooms are clean and spacious, ours was a mini suite on the top floor. They have gated parking which is behind the B&B. Definitely will stay here again.

At apparently 2.5 stars...have stayed at 4 stars not as good as this. Excellent service, stayed in queen bed room which was clean, very spacious and large, modern bathroom. Bed was very comfortable although two beds pushed together to make a queen. Pillows also comfortable.

They let us check in early which was also great!

Breakfast included (buffet of pastures, fruit, cereal, cured meats, bread, tomatoes, fruit juice and espresso made coffee!!!) in a cute dining room or out at the garden. Can also sit out in the garden whenever you like and they have hot tea and coffee in the afternoon. Close to the railway station part of the wall. Quiet location, which is nice.

Thanks for an amazing stay!!! Most bargain place we've stayed at with amazing service and hospitality!!! What we dream every B&B to be.

I loved this place - the location was perfect. Close to the walls, an easy walk to shops, and the botanical gardens as well as a bar making delicious pastries. The breakfast was magnificent. Staff so helpful. My room was comfortable and clean. Loved staying here!
