“Great stay with a helpful and gracious host”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

This was a great B&B for anyone traveling in the Pisa area. Carla and Mario were wonderful hosts. We had to take care of some business beforehand so we didn't know our travel schedule exactly. Fortunately, Carla was very flexible and gracious in adapting to our schedule. She politely reminded us that we forgot to tell her when we were arriving at the train station which led to a seamless rendezvous on the day. Our plans also slightly changed and we requested an extra night. They were more than happy to accommodate.

It is a little outside the center of the "city" but Pisa is pretty small so you can get around easily. There is a bus stop about a 5 minute walk from the B and B that takes you right to the city center.
However, we never needed to take the bus because Carla and Mario graciously chauffeured us around! We only took the bus once because we didn't want to bother them (although they told us to call when we wanted to be picked up)...it's 1.20 Euro for a ticket that's good for ~90 minutes.
Moreover, if you are traveling via auto or plane, the B and B is ideally situated near the motorway and airport. There appeared to be ample private parking on the grounds.
The B&B is located in a quiet suburban neighborhood with a decent pizzeria down the street. We ordered from there once and had it delivered.
The breakfast is an ample continental breakfast with plenty of choice.

Overall, definitely a wonderful experience and we look forward to a future stay at B&B Carla.

We cannot say enough good things about Carla and Mario! We sent Carla an email inquiring about availability and not only was her response time within a few hours (amazing considering the time difference), but also she was very helpful in assisting us plan our very short stay in Pisa. Mario and Carla met us at the airport, which was so nice having never arrived into Pisa International before. After we were settled in, Mario offered to drive us to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and even offered to pick us up if we wanted. We ended up walking back to their B&B and enjoying the friendly shops, gelato stand, and neighborhoods along the way. Their B&B is on a dead end road so it is quiet and away from the downtown area. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. They certainly pay attention to the small details of added service and even had snacks and fruit in the room for us. The breakfast the next day was incredible! The entire two side buffets offered so many options (yogurt, cereal, fruit, fresh breads and baked goods, etc.) and the coffee was amazing! The cost of the room hardly seemed enough for everything Carla & Mario provided. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend this B&B. When we return to Italy, we most certainly will fly in and out of Pisa just to have the pleasure of seeing Carla and Mario again!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice.

I have stayed in many great hotels before & have never taken the time to write a review, but this place truly warrants it. B&B Carla is fabulous; principally because of Carla. While situated outside the historic centre of Pisa that is not a disadvantage. It's a lovely neighbourhood and Carla kindly dropped me to the centre & station as needed. The B&B is in a lovely old home and is beautifully furnished. My room was spotless and had all the comforts you could possibly require including tea, coffee & delicious Italian sweets. The breakfast is very generous & Carla even packed me cake to take with me during the day. If you are even thinking of visiting Pisa stay here. It's also a great base to visit Lucca & Firenze by train. I hope to come again with a car & stay here as a base to explore Tuscany. Carla is so knowledgeable about the area and a very kind soul; she is the consummate host. It's also a bargain. Stay here. You won't regret it!

We have been traveling 2 weeks in Italy and have had wonderful accommodations, but want to give special kudos to B&B Carla. Since we were flying out of Pisa we wanted someplace close to airport. Carla picked us up at the train station, gave us a ride to a store and restaurant, picked us up 2 hours later, took us the airport all the while going back and forth to visit her husband in the hospital! Wonderful room, gracious host.

I stayed at Carla's for one night before leaving Italy for home. Carla and Mario do a fantastic job. They met us at the train station and proceeded to assist us in making the best of every moment we had in Pisa. Her historical information, along with a good walking map and suggestions of what to see and where to finish couldn't have worked out better. In addition, her bountiful and delicious breakfast was a great addition. When Carla says she'll meet your every need, she holds true to her word. I wouldn't consider anyplace else should I return to Pisa.

We had such a great time in Pisa! This was all thanks to Carla and Mario! They met us at the train station, took us back to the B & B, let us freshen up and the took us into Pisa. We spent all day there and then went to a restaurant they recommended. It was WONDERFUL!!! I wish I remembered the name of the restaurant. Hopefully they will see this review and mention the name so I can rate the restaurant also, because it was delicious!

They picked us up from the restaurant and took us back to the B & B. We checked the train schedules (they let us look it up online), and after breakfast they took us to the trains.

The room was BEAUTIFUL!!! It was spotless (of course). The breakfast in the morning was HUGE! There was so much to choose from, and they told us to take some with us also! Really, it was just such a great, wonderful, perfect stay!
