Historical Traveler Reviews La Boheme Lucca
Enjoyed a very pleasant stay here over the weekend of 18 - 21 March 2005. Ranieri & his staff are extremely courteous & friendly. The accommodation itself is exactly as described on their web site.
La Boheme was the most charming place we stayed on our trip through Tuscany. We were greated with warm smiles and had a fantastic room right about the popular pizzeria below. We stayed two nights and Lucca was by far our favorite town. Definitely rent bikes and ride around the perimeter of the town on the wall, eat at both Leo's and Guido's, climb the stairs of the tower and go out to one of their nightclubs...it's the hopping local scene of Lucca.
The only drawback to La Boheme is trying to get to it via car. Make sure you have them send you a brochure. The B&B is located directly behind the Piazza and very very close to Leo's. And bring ear plugs as well. The joys of old Lucca are the beautiful buildings but remember those buildings have single pane windows.
Lovely little B&B
We stayed only one night in this B&B, but it was clean, pretty, affordable, and pleasant. Bathroom was especially nice - spacious and spotless. The proprietor gave us the best restaurant recommendation of our entire trip - and it was around the corner.
A delightful B&B
We stayed in Lucca for 3 nights in Oct 2004 and loved B&B La Boheme! Ranieri is wonderfully helpful with directions, recommendations, etc. The rooms are lovely, very spacious and quiet. Breakfast was good, fresh fruit a nice addition. We will always stay here when going to Lucca.
One of the nicest B&B's we've seen in Europe. There is no elevator but everything else about the place is terrific. Rooms are beautifully furnished and very romantic; bathrooms are spotless and modern. The breakfast is more than adequate. The location is right in the center of the old walled town and private parking is available a block away for just a few Euros a day. I highly recommend this accomodation. The manager even sends a thank you by e-mail when you leave!
Loved the La Boheme
We had a lovely time at the La Boheme. Ranieri was very helpful with our luggage, and more than happy to meet our every need. The location is great! We would definately stay here if we visit Lucca again.
Good Value and Service
We booked La Boheme on line based on a few reviews only and stayed there Sept '04. It's in a great location, and is very charming. Ranieri, the host, is very helpful. And it was pretty reasonable. The continental breakfast was good - and Ranieri will make a cappucino if you ask. The room was big and the ceiling high.
This place is well above average for the price.
La Boheme has not long been open, and is not listed in British guide books. We stayed there recently on the basis of one glowing report, and were not disappointed.
La Boheme is centrally located in Lucca, very close to the Piazza San Michele. There are five elegant and well furnished bedrooms, all different, and all ensuite, plus an attractive breakfast room. We paid euros 100 a night for the room , and this included breakfast. Signor Ranieri and his mother made us feel very welcome and could not have been more helpful and friendly, We found La Boheme a delightful place to stay and most warmly recommend it.
Very Good B&B
Excellent old town location. Very helpful hosts. Lovely room. Very good breakfast. Without question, a very good place to stay in Lucca.
Elegance and Charm at the Right Price
If you are looking for a reasonably priced treasure, then look no further than the B&B La Bohemein Lucca, Italy. This five-room gem is located just steps away from Piazza San Michele, the heart of this ancient Tuscan town. Each room is utterly unique and sumptuously decorated, with great attention to detail and quality. Our particular room was graced with 15-foot ceilings replete with luxurious damask drapes and an exquisite heavy wood beam ceiling. The breakfast room is beyond charming and straight out of a movie.
However, the best part just might be the proprietors - Rainieri and his mother. I have lived in Italy for almost two years and in that time have travelled extensively, staying in dozens of places up and down the peninsula. However, in all my travels I have never met a more friendly and accomodating pair.I HIGHLY recommend this B&B, and at $100-140/night it is a steal. I can honestly say that this little pearl compares favorably to the Hotel Grand Flora in Rome, and yet costs less than one-fourth the price.

Travel Blogs from Lucca
After a lovely introduction to Lucca yesterday we had a few things left to see before heading off. Lucca has been my favourite place so far - and such a nice surprise on what was just aiming to be a stopover on our way north. On Saturday morning we had the choice of setting straight off or having one last look. Much to Rose's chagrin we decided to …
Today we leisurely took a walking tour of Lucca, outlined by The Rick Steves guidebook. Our first stop was in the former Amphitheater. The original Roman structure was built in the 2nd century and held 10,000 people. It was destroyed in the 1100s and locals used it as a quarry for the stone to construct their palaces and churches. The foundations …

We arrived in Lucca at about 1.30 and checked in to our B&B, appreciating the warm welcome from owner Francesca. I think we got a bargain with this one, with our nice big room and exceptionally efficient air conditioning (HIGH on our list of priorities at the moment. We are still experiencing 37 degree days and warm nights).
We had a rest, read our books and David did our hand washing, which dried outside in about ...

It was great to be warm again as much as being back on the road and taking in the sites, smells and tastes of the area we are in. In the evening we continued to explore the walled city, taking simple pasta dishes for our first dinner on Italian soil. What a great ...

Watching the traffic controller was amusing, trying to work out what logic he was using to stop some people and let others go was impossible. Though it seems that most Italians just do what they want, regardless of instructions!
It appears we've happened to luck out and visit Lucca during an important weekend on their religious calendar. The result of this was that as part of our walking tour we were ...
