“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Stayed for a week in Il Toscano bob 2 bedroom apartment. Spotlessly clean, spacious and ideal for visiting leaning Tower of Pisa, literally 100 metres from front door. Also ideal base to visit Florence or Lucca by train. Apartment is quiet although positioned on a busy road, you would never know. Air conditioning keeps you cool and the associated restaurant has great take out food if you don't feel like cooking. Supermarkets (mini) are close by but a visit to the larger PAM supermarket just past the Mcdonalds and Burger king is cheaper and worth a visit. All in all a great way to visit Italy with your family and keep the cost down without losing out on the quality. Great service all round and would not hesitate to recommend.

Fantastic location. Spacious first floor en-suite bedroom with balcony above Il Toscana Restaurant. Very efficient air-conditioning unit. Good, simple continental breakfast provided in room. Friendly, attentive staff.

Made full use of excellent attached restaurant with discount for guests.

Would highly recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: We stayed in room at front directly above Il Toscana Restaurant, but little noise from below despite...

This B and B is in an excellent location. 1 minute from the leaning tower, cathedral etc. However the service is non existent. When we arrived we were told to hand over our passports so they could produce a bill for us and then we were guided to our room. There was no welcoming or greeting from the staff. Service was poor. We had no contact from the staff who ran the restaurant / B and B downstairs. Breakfast was not good. Cake, coffee and warm milk for cereal. If you don't mind receiving poor service I would recommend this hotel because it's located in a perfect location with good bedroom and bathroom facilities.

We (mom, a friend of mine, and I) stayed here for one night to meet with a family member that lives in Italy. Apartment was really well located a few meters away from the piazza dei miracoli (where the tower is) what is more, you could see the walls of the apartment from the top of the tower!! The apartment has two bedrooms both with a double bed and we asked for an extra one, we got it! A nice little detail to me was that there was a courtesy water bottle for each one of us. Shower was FANTASTIC. Downstairs there is a restaurant which belongs to the same owner of the b&b. The restaurant offers a discount for guests of the b&b and the food was delicious, you have to try the "Bistecca a la Fiorentina". Very good place to stay, only bad thing was that wifi was not working well, but I managed to connect my ipad to the restaurant wifi.

Discovering a great restaurant in Italy is not difficult to do; there are so many! My wife and I have traveled quite a bit in Italy, and although we do lots of research about where to at before we go, somehow we never quite make it. We start to walk, and then we get hungry, and then we start to look around. That is just what happened when we went to see The Leaning Tower of Pisa. We walked around the corner, not in the immediate circumference of The Tower, perhaps a few minutes away. We stumbled into Il Toscano-and it was sensational. The pasta was perfect, and there were a few local dishes on the menu that neither of us had ever heard of. Lunch was followed that same night by dinner. Delicious!

Room Tip: We did not stay ion the B and B-just enjoyed the restaurant.

We rented a full appartment at this B&B. The appartment was absolutely nice, it is just 30 m away from the towe so we did all our visits by foot. Staff was really helpful. Breakfast was really basic but I did not know that was included so no problems with that. It is really convenient to check on the private bathroom because it is not so clear sometimes on how it is described. The appartment is really nice, modern, updated. one of the beds had a difficult mattress but the place all on in all is really good, nice and has all facilities. I recommend it.

Room Tip: Check on the type of bed you will have, in case you have back issues. They are all very helpful I am...
