A Room With a View
After maybe 80 steps upstairs you get to the suite on the top of an old house probably more than 200 years old.
It's worth. The views are stunning. From your window you see the famous Torre Guinigi with trees on top, and the terracotta roofs of Lucca. We stayed at the suite "La Torre," two smal rooms with a private shower-toilet out site the door. It works well since you hardly meet someone else (there are just two suites). I found some negative things that you should be aware of, the rooms were not clean enough, you could see dust on the corners and furniture, and the bathroom, should have lighting in the shower — it gets too dark since the lamps are outside and the shower is separated with a wall. There were also some things that need to be repaired or changed. We had a broken chair and we hade to ask for a new one in order to both sit down to have breakfast. The toilet lid was also broken and you couldn't seat comfortable. I would recommend to change these things and see over the furniture so you don't get the feeling of being on a street market. I think as well that the room needs an small refrigerator to keep water cold also, that you need the rooms to have drinking water supplied by the B&B — the water of Lucca is very hard and not nice for drinking even though you won't get il if you drink it.

L'Altana provided a wonderful base for us during out visit to Lucca.
It is up about 80 stairs which might cause some people a problem but was fine for us. Great views and comfortable, interesting accommodation in the centre of town. Our private bathroom did involve going out onto the public landing but that was ok.
