“Good location, GREAT hostess.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

I arrived at 10pm and as pre-arranged and suggested by Flavia (the owner) i was picked me up 10 mins later from right outside the airport arrivals. The B+B is located on a quiet road just off a main road. It is actually located down a driveway and behind a gate, so is not (very) visable from the roadside. There is a "five roses" plaque by the roadside/gate but could eaily be missed. **** Instead If you look for the house number "14" on the gates then you will have no problem finding it. *****

Because it's on a side street and has a set back location it is quiet with little/no outside noise. It is very clean and nothing is too much trouble for Flavia. If you want to chat to her she will chat, if you want a quiet time then thats fine also.

My room had tea/coffee facilities and also a fridge/mini bar. NIce powerfull shower and comfy bed, A/c also. Tv In room has plenty of channels in plenty of languages. Continental breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice, cakes made by Flavia were fantastic.

It is located 10 min walk from town and a 25 min walk from the tower. its a 5 min walk to the train station. There is a nice Pizzeria just round the corner too.

As a random point to note - i was bitten by the mozzies a few times. Flavia told me Pisa has lots of mozzies so take some spray.

Go to Lucca for the day, a quaint old town. Take the train, 3 Euros each way and takes 20 mins. Note: The train station at Pisa before 10am is manic. The standard tickets i got were vaild for 2 months and not for a certain train/time. The self service ticket machines are very easy to use (also in english). DON'T forget in Italy to get your train tickets validated BEFORE getting on the train, put the ticket into the machine on the wall / on the platform, very easy.

I deciced to walk to the airport, it could not be easier. Just 20 mins walk and is one road all the way, from the B+B gates turn right and just keep waking. There is a bridge to cross over railway lines though.

All in all the "five roses" is worth 5 stars.

Room Tip: Look for the number "14" on the roadside/gate to find the B+B, you could easily miss the...

This b&b is beautiful inside. The owner, Flavia is very kind and bakes wonderful pastries.
Our room was spotless and very large. We had a big shower, comfy bed, A/C, and yummy breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay.

Spent one night and cant fault it. Cleanest B&B I can remember - very good aircon in the bedroom not noisy - beds really good quality and to top it all off Flavia the owner - a really delightful person who is happy to go out of her way to help.

We stayed at the Five Roses B&B and have to say we very much enjoyed our stay. Flavia was fantastic and made sure our stay was perfect. Breakfast is very good and the place is spotless. She even took us to the airport when we came back to uk.

We only stayed one night in this B&B but it was lovely. The owner was really friendly and flexible. The place is really nice - 5 mins from the airport in a taxi (about 10 euros), 30 mins walk to the tower or there is a really easy bus. We had to leave quite early in the morning which was a shame we didn't get to spend a long time over all the cakes on offer at breakfast! We went to the pizza place that she recommended and it was fantastic. Best pizza I've ever had.

We stayed over night in Pisa on our way home after a week in Italy. After visiting the leaning tour and picking up our bags from the left luggage at the station we made our way to the Five Roses Bed & Breakfast. First impression was not so good as we received no response upon ringing the bell at the gate. Luckily someone was coming out and so let us in and led us to the right place. The owner was very suprised at not hearing the bell so I think it was the first time something like this had happened. She was very apologetic and welcoming. The room was well-appointed with everything you might need. My one complaint is that the bed was very hard. Breakfast in the morning was a good spread. We had enquired by email before staying whether we could get a transfer to the airport in the morning but our hostess explained that we would have to leave very early because she had to be there for breakfast (which started at 7.30) - fair enough we thought, and said we'd get a taxi instead. She rang a taxi for us at 8 am but unfortunately there were none available. So she promptly told the one person in the breakfast room that she had to take us to the airport, asked her to explain to others who came along that she'd be back shortly, and drove us to the airport! Very kind indeed and we really appreciated it - you simply cannot beat that kind of personal service. Definitely recommend.
