Positive Reviews

Good location for transport and the sights

It was by far Gli Arclecchini's location that most impressed guests. They described it as just a couple of minutes from the train station. Also, the leaning tower was just a 15 to 20 minute walk away. Guests definitely felt that they could walk to any sight in Pisa they cared to visit.

Cheap price

There was certainly no shortage of issues guests had with the B&B. But some, on reflection, acknowledged that they had paid a fairly low room-rate. Those who were only in town for a day for a very quick look at the sights seemed the happiest, since for them the B&B was simply a place to crash for the night.

Welcoming and informative host

While reviews were somewhat mixed, most guests seemed to have approved of the host's conduct. He was described as welcoming and very informative, helping tourists make the most of their stay.

Negative Reviews

Confusion surrounding the bathrooms

This was the thing that caused the most complaints, even causing a fair amount of anger from guests. They insist that they booked a room that was described as having a private bathroom, only to arrive and find themselves allocated to a room with a shared bathroom. They went on to say that they did not even accept that they had been allocated to a different room, which would be bad enough, but that the rooms themselves were being missrepresented on the B&B's website.

Problems with check-in and access

Since the host doesn't live on the premises, and there is no permanent staff on-site, a key pick up time needs to be arranged. Of course reality is such that these plans don't always…go to plan every time, leaving guests without keys.

Walls are “paper thin”

A fairly common complaint was that the room walls did nothing at all to prevent the passage of sound from room to room.
