“Waited 45 minutes in the street until someone came”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Be careful if you book this place through an agent (like hotel.com) as they won't tell you that it is closed in the afternoon. We arrived at 3:15pm and found a closed door. There was a phone number to call in case of absence, but no one picked-up the phone before 4:00pm and then only to tell us to wait a bit more. Frankly there are better things to do than waiting outside your B&B with kids and luggage, by 36 degree Celsius. The room was big and nice (a bit worn out) and the owner seemed to be a nice person. The breakfast consisted of crackers, butter, jam, a few bananas and some cookies, we took ours somewhere else. The location is perfect and the owner nicely proposed to park our car in the garden and explained how to get there (finding one's way in Pisa historical center with all street being one way is far from easy). We had a last issue with payment as none of our cards were accepted (the system was obviously down) and we had to empty all pockets to find the amount in cash.

Thanks for your considerations! As first, please consider that we will take care of it and will try to increase our quality and our service.
About your waiting, we are so much sorry for it, but on every booking system (hotels.com, venere, expedia,booking, etc) and in the confirmation too, is clearly indicated that check-in is between 16 and 22pm. However please note we are stongly flexible, according with the request of our customers; when they ask (in the reservation or by email) for a early check-in (or later) we are always available: offering the possibility to park the cars since the morning, to have check-in at 12 for example or we wait the arrival of last flight that is usually after 00.00. But also check-out time is flexible time (within 10am) and moreover we always permits to our guest to park the cars until the afternoon.
Hope that this can help tp clear the misunderstanding.
Thanks again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We just stayed for one night at this B&B - and loved it for its homely and authentic feel. Our room was a good size and the adjacent bathroom was enormous by Italian standards! The location was perfect, being halfway between the Leaning Tower and the town centre (both within easy walking distance). Franco, the owner, was exceptionally gracious and kind, and we would have no hesitation in staying here again - and for longer next time!

Room Tip: The best room is the superior double. It overlooks the street, but was reasonably quiet at night.

A very gracious welcome from Franco, an elegant room with an immaculate bathroom that had a glorious ceiling, and an excellent breakfast overseen by Franco who is a gentleman. Near enough to Il Torre Pendente etc for convenience, but actually cut off from the crowds. A very useful find - especially if you know who Fibonacci was.
