“Good experience..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2010

We stayed in June 2010, three adults in a triple room (Silvigie) with ensuite on ground floor of traditional Italian apartment block. Arrived from airport by bus (1 Euro, six stops) and short walk down street opposite bus stop. B&B is unattended so you need to phone prior to arrival. Met by Chris the owners assistant who was very helpful. Room with one double and one single bed was clean, air conditioned with comfortable beds and clean ensuite (although the shower hanger was broken which made showering difficult). Other negative was noise from the street which the room fronted on to. Certainly adequate for a two night stay and reasonably located a 5 - 10 minute walk from the station and Corso Italia, the main shopping street. Due to early departure we arranged for the owner to provide a ride to the airport which costs 10 Euros.

we were traveling with a young baby ( 8 months ) and found il giramondo very suited to our needs. It is located in a quiet area 5 minutes walk away pedestrian zone and the central station. It is very easily reached from the airport. It has a nice big balcony.
Nice with free 6-10 mbit wireless internet.

The Staff ( Chris) was very friendly and forthcomming and did everything to make our stay a pleasant one.
We therefore do not hessitate to reccomend this location to other travelers

The Island Vulcan caused problems for our trip back home, but this BB made our stay in Pisa very pleasant. Its close to the citycenter, its clean, have a good service and its great value for the money.

We will for sure stay there again next time we pass Pisa.

I stayed in the Bed and Breakfast Il Giramondo for two weeks. So they gave me a SPECIAL PRICE: 30 euro per night for a single room (which was in fact a room with two beds, so it was large for me) with bathroom (which was indeed not in my room, but exclusively for me) and breakfast. It was the best price I was offered in Pisa.
The quality of the breakfast depends on the number of guests: If there are many guests the breakfast is very rich, otherwise it is ok.
At the beginning of my stay I got a key for the hostel. This was very good and helpful.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2008

When we first got to the hotel, no one was there to meet us and they'd just left a phone number for us to call which was a huge pain given that we'd been traveling for the past 20 hours and didn't have a phone with us. So, we had to haul all of our luggage to find a pay phone and then wait for them to come let us in. Then, they didn't actually have a credit card machine at the hotel, so we had to go with them to another hotel to pay with credit card. So, the service could have been better.

Having said that, though, the owners were very kind once they showed up! They packed us a breakfast since we were leaving early the next morning. The room was clean (with hilarious leopard print sheets!). The bathroom was a bit weird because the shower was in the middle of the bathroom with only shower curtains on either side (no ledge or anything), making it so the whole bathroom got wet when you showered. But, the bathroom was still always clean somehow!
The B&B is not far from the train station, which was nice. All in all, the service could have been better, but they were very friendly and it was a decent stay at an affordable price.
