This place is definitely unlike any other we have stayed in and we were really looking forward to staying there as part of our 3 week adventure in Italy. However, there were real problems which travellers need to be aware of, and I would not want to return, as a result of. 1. Communication -The owner does not speak English...

I loved this B&B right in the middle of Pistoia. It could perhaps do with a little updating but the room was huge, with magnificent frescoed ceiling and view of the basilica from the window. Exceptionally good value for money. The owner was really friendly and helpful. The shared bathroom was a little way from the bedroom - not great...

Spent one night at the huge, unique apartment, where rooms can be rented. Shared bathroom but we did not meet any of the other guests at any time. Big, nice room with paintings on the ceiling. A bit chilly at night. Friendly hostess. However, we almost did not sleep all night as the street noise from drunk people singing and...

The windows did not keep out the street noise of drunkards yelling and loudly singing until 2 in the morning. Sure, the room was fine, and the breakfast was OK, but if you can't get sleep, who cares about anything else? (We had a three-year-old with us, which made us even angrier about the situation.) When we told the owner...

I arrived late to the B&B and my colleagues had picked up my key and got me inside and settled as everyone at the B&B was asleep. My room was very spacious and beautiful. There was a small television with a dvd player. The bathroom was a bit small, but very clean and the shower was spacious considering the full...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Bed & Breakfast "Canto alla Porta Vecchia" is situated in the historical centre of Pistoia only two strides away from the spectacular cathedral and many other main tourist attractions. At the Bed & Breakfast you will find an authentic atmosphere of a typical 18th-century home, the main feature being the breathtaking hand-painted ceilings. It has spacious bedrooma, which are pleasing to say the least, and they also compliment the 18th-century style, which flows through the house. The owners of the Bed & Breakfast are always on hand to make your stay as comfortable and as pleasant as possible. The room in which guests have their breakfast not only has style but it also has a magnificent view of the "Madonna dell'Umilt" Church which can only be described as simply breathtaking. ... more   less
