“Lovely authentic value for money rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We stayed here August 2013 for one night and loved it. I think we probably ended up with the best room at the front of the building with a balcony and we were really pleased with it.
You do need to let them know what time you are arriving so there is someone there to meet you (this was quite difficult for us as we were driving in from Switzerland, but we just texted an approx time of arrival which seemed to be adequate).
The accommodation is very clean and well thought through, although this is not a traditional b&b as we expect in the UK it was great for us, we had juice and croissants in the room for breakfast the next morning and also there are coffee making facilities and a fridge for everyone to use. The bathrooms were clean and well equipped with toiletries. We felt comfy and secure in the building and really enjoyed our walk into Pisa (about 25 mins to the tower) The man who checked us in was really friendly and gave us loads of information and even a map of Pisa so we could find our way around.
There is no parking but this is not a problem as we were told we could park just around the corner at the supermarket for free and we were able to unload at the front of the building on arrival.
All in all we loved this place and for the amount we paid it was great budget accommodation for five people.

Get informed about what other travellers wrote. My experience: It is both an apartment, 50 & 52, not built as a hostel. Gate 52 has a confusing dependance at number 50. We arrived in the afternoon, in the evening hard to find. No parking place.Outside no information which doorbell we had to ring. Outside at 50 is a green indication " Gate 52", so we entered there, not knowing the building next door is also "Gate 52". At number 50 you have to climb 3 stairs.There was a Italian speaking romanian woman cleaning, she gave us the keys and information and accepted our money.There is no airco. Not all rooms have ceiling fan. Breakfast: self service coffee &sweets.
No kitchen, just a coffe machine/hot water/fridge. Bathrooms oké. It was very clean, the room we got at first was with a double bed and a very too small miserable one person bed. We insisted to give us another room with 3 adult sleeps. We've got. We slept well. Was at the streetside, can be noisy. Other guests made lot of noise in the morning. It is really just a short walk from the entrance to the airport, so if you have lo leave early this is a good place. But be prepared: back home I found emails from "Rocco" about my arrival/flight time.????? Even he phoned to my home :( So he suppose your coming IN to Italy, not going OUT......
As I was already one week in Italy I did'nt read at home my mailaccount. So, If you decide to book this place for one night give your mobile number to the manager, stay ABSOLYTELY in contact about your arrival, as there is no reception desk, no control. We left in the morning without having seen manager.Just leave the keys at the door and walk to the plane. For the price we payed it was allright.

Room Tip: The room at the streetside has a double bed & a bunkbed, 4 persons and a ceiling fan.Balcony, sm...

The owner of gate 52 B&B didnt inform us when we booked that check in is only till midnight. I emailed Rocco the owner, that we will be checking in late around 10 pm.
Because of road works on the drive up to pisa , this slowed us up, and arrived just before midnight. It was very difficult to find the B&B, as it there were no proper signs, and B&B 52 is an appartment in a block of flats, and the owner does not live on the premises. when we rang rocco after standing outside waiting for ages, no answer. he charged us for a NO Show, but we did show up . He texted me, are you still coming and i text back YES. He could have least answered his mobile phone and tell us about his regulations, then leave us waiting in the middle of nowhere for ages feel cold,  until a gentleman from another B&B noticed us  and provided accommodations for me and my family, we had to pay again.
Don't recommend this place if you are going to check in late!!!!

Very clean and well run place. Plenty of space and loads of hot water. Stayed one night and it was really handy for the airport next day and even more special for its location when getting to Pisa for the first time. So near the airport train station , in your room before you know it , giving plenty of time to walk into town and enjoy the small bars along the way. Only thing I would say is , it's not a place I stay for long periods as if you have the room nearest the toilets/shower rooms you hear them a bit. But overall I certainly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the shower/toilet rooms

If you arrive late into pisa or have an early morning flight, Gate 52 will definitely suffice. It's a straight shot 3-5 min walk from/to the airport. staff was nice enough. the room was actually nicer than i expected. It's not a place i would stay for multiple nights, but for a quick layover night it is quite suitable and affordable.

Arrived late into Pisa. Hotel was an easy 5 min walk from the airport. No problem getting into the hotel and the proprietor was friendly. Rooms are exactly as per the photos - nothing fancy, but clean enough. I found it quite noisy, but my other half slept fine. For one nights stay this fit the bill ok.

We stayed there twice for one night, the first time in an older house, but it was very clean and comfortable. The second time we stayed in a house nextdoor, the bathrooms were new, very nice, but for the same price . Very clean linens. It was a good choice to stay there. Perhaps just a little bit noisy, the noise came from the street trafic, it was summer and the windows were opened, but I had ear-plugs and I slept fine.
