“Like staying at a friend's house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

With the aid of google maps and a 3G card, I had no problem finding this hotel. Since I was thirty minutes early for check-in, I dined at a nearby restaurant, ordering four cheese gnocchi that tasted like one-cheese packet dumplings and the entire contents of a salt shaker.

Michel, the owner of the B&B, took me to his dining room for check-in. He commiserated on my chaotic experience at the tourist restaurant, and proceeded to draw on a map, the location of two good restaurants and a gelateria, along with a warning of to be careful about where I ate. I took his advice later, and found the recommendations to be good, and reasonably priced.

My room was fantastic - large, walls decorated with large tiles of Michel's capably taken photographs of nearby beauty spots, a nespresso machine in one corner, and an entire wine rack. I selected one bottle of San Gimignano wine for 10 euro. The room had an attached and private bathroom.

There was no noise from other guests during the entire stay, but some noise from the street in the early morning - if you weren't suffering jetlag, you wouldn't have heard it.

Michel was up at 8 am preparing a great breakfast of cheeses, meats, yoghurts, cereals, chocolate bars, fruits, juices, and individually prepared coffees. The more I dealt with him, the more I became impressed. You only need to see he offers a checkout from 4 am to understand how tirelessly he works. He is the B&B's biggest asset.

Location of the hotel is good - it is a twenty minute walk to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, that takes you through the beautiful town center. It is one street away from the train station - a good way to get to Rome is to take a slow train to Florence, walk around for a few hours, then take the 1hr 40 min non-stop train to Rome; much preferable to flying there from Pisa.

Pisa is small, but located near to some very beautiful places. I didn't have time to see them. The exceptional quality of the B&B will be a large driving force for me to return there and cover the unexplored neighbourhood in the future.

The host, Michele, could have not been more helpful and informative about local places to see and eat (and avoid). Hotel beuatifully decorated with Michele's photographs of the area on the walls. Great value for money, if you are going to Pisa, stay here.

+ Hotel and b&b staff are generally helpful but the staff at this b&b went out of their way to recommend several things to make our short stay in Pisa very memorable. They also recommended a local place to eat and to have great natural ice cream that exceeded our expectations, even going as far as to book an early reservation at the restaurant. We stayed at several B&Bs within a price range on our trip and this b&b had much more to offer than the others. Their English was also very good. The b&b was close to the train station and the walk to the Campo Dei Miracoli (leaning tower) was easy and also memorable. When we were ready to leave they also offered to drop us off at the car rental.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our honeymoon. The B&B is very close to the station - a walk even with luggage - and about a 15-20 minute walk to the centre of Pisa. Michele, who runs B&B Tuscany Gallery, was absolutely lovely and gave us a map and recommendations of what to see in our short time in Pisa and where to eat. The room and bathroom were spotless and really comfortable. Michele is a photographer and his photograph in the bathroom of the Cinque Terre was stunning. Breakfast was delicious.

A great B&B, in great proximity to the station, with such a friendly owner, Michele, who passionately and with great humour gave us all the gen on Pisa. The B&B itself was great, we had a lovely airconditioned bedroom with a large bunkroom for our 17 year old son and a beautifully decorated bathroom with a lovely powerful shower. His restaurant recommendation was spot-on and we had a delicious meal. Upon leaving Michele very kindly brought us to the airport car hire company so we could continue on our holiday. Highly recommended.

Had two separate nights in the Tuscany Gallery en route to a wedding in Greve. Michele was a great host, informative on the region. His restaurant recomendations were spot. Both rooms we had were spotless and well presented. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Great proximty to the main attractions in Pisa, easy walking distance. Pcked up and dropped off at the airport twice, what more could you ask for.

This is truly a remarkable b+b where the owner Michele is a very genial host who provides excellent, comfortable accomodation. It is spotless clean and the breakfast was amazing with such an array of fruit, ham, eggs, cheese, cereal, bread,cakes, yoghurts etc. He takes his role very seriously and spent at least 30 mintes telling us all about Pisa. His reccommendations for restaurants were excellent. We had a suite of rooms with tea/coffee making facilities- the room next door even had its own kitchen.Michele left us to the airport the next morning as part of the service he offers. My only regret is that we could not stay longer but we will be back- well done Michele
