Walkable distance to the leaning tower. Good location for us a family with an underage daughter. The owner offered friendly advice on places to visit and dine. Breakfast was good with tasty homemade cakes. Our best souvenir was the superb service from Monica in the morning during breakfast time. She was very helpful and friendly and even helped us carry our luggage when we were leaving. The only downside to the place is that it is no lift especially if you have heavy luggage or with limited mobility.
Excellent B&B with high quality accommodations. Located upstairs in a historic building, the rooms are large, clean, and modern. Towels are soft and fluffy. Plentiful breakfast is served in the lobby area. Owners are very nice and the young lady serving breakfast is very friendly and efficient. The location is within walking distance of the railway station, tourist areas, and shopping streets. Before arriving be sure to print a detailed map of the immediate area of the address. The streets are very small and if you come by taxi they may not be able to drive all the way to the little piazza where the B&B is located. Look for the tall green double doors with a name plate to the right; almost opposite Mani'omo restaurant (which is excellent.)
The free Wi-fi worked very well and was easy to access. Owners will provide information about offsite parking if needed. All the sights of Pisa can be seen in one day, but the Relais is a good base to use for a day trips to the Cinque Terre and Lucca without having to move from hotel to hotel night after night.
It will help other people a lot if there is a bigger sign of the hotel's name. Other than that it's thumbs up for service, cleanliness, comfort and location. There is a lovely Pizza restaurant about 3 minutes from the hotel also many restaurants nearby. The train station is about 15 to 20 minutes walk. The Leaning Tower is also around 20 min easy walk and there are also buses if walking is not for you.
Difficult to find with no parking in very narrow streets. Is close to shops and restaurants and the river. A twenty minute walk to the Leaning Tower but an easy walk, The breakfast was good and the only problem was that the room overlooked a small sguare which was noisy into the early hours however with a/c we kept the window closed which lessened the noise a little.The room was a good size and was very clean. We stayed two nights but one day in Pisa is ample time to see everything.
Excellent location - in the heart of the old town, walking distance from tthe cathedral, the market, the central street and the river.
The place has a special character, located in a very old building on the market squire, recently renovated.
The accommodation the Relais Dei Mercanti B&B provided is very comfortable, recently renovated; very well, we can say luxury, designed entity. Instead of one room we received an apartment – the quietest and most comfortable room of the hotel. Remember room number 6. I should admit I had asked before by booking for a quiet room. The apartment consists of one bedroom and one living room, equipped with very nice furniture including very comfortable bed, desk, sofa, 2 wardrobes, and refrigerator. The breakfast was very tasty with variety of ham, prosciutto, cheeses, fruits, juices, coffee, tea, and homemade cakes (specialty of Assunta, the owner’s wife). Coffee, tea, cakes, and fruits are available all the day in the kitchen.We thank Franco and Assunta for the nice atmosphere they have created/ We felt by here like at home. Highly recommended!!
Took is a while to find this B&B, despite directions from Tripadvisor. Walked past it 3 x before we noticed the tiny sign on the wall by the green doors. We arrived during daylight, and the whole area looked abandoned. Found out later that was far from the truth.
Finding the B&B was not straightforward, perhaps we should have taken a taxi not the bus from the airport. Perhaps a more conspicuous sign would have helped. Advised the owner of our late arrival and he was waiting. We had Room 2 (with balcony) which was very spacious, well decorated, furnished and extremely clean, very happy. Only problem with breakfast was inability to get a proper pot of tea, did not use boiling water, so resorted to coffee following mornings. Why do continentals find making tea so difficult? About 10 mins from Tower/Duomo, and 15 mins from railway station. Close to restaurants and the one opposite the B&B, Mani'omio, we found to be very good. Overall we were very pleased with our choice and the "staff" were the epitome of helpfulness.
There is no denying that this is a charming and beautiful place in downtown Pisa. The interior has been designed with great skill. But then, it is also very much in the upmarket segment given the local prices, and given that one pays about double the average rate, it may be seen as somewhat offputting to realize that hardly anyone in this place is able to speak English. Also, the internet connection is slow and complicated.
A new opened place. The hosts were a warm couple. The room was clean, simple and satisfied our needs. The location is great for couples, closer to shops, cafes, shopping area as well as the river Arno.
Typical Italian breakfast is served. We've asked for continental breakfast. Next morning it was served with warm hospitality.
No parking area but anyway you can easily find a parking place near. The hotel is not far from the parking places. The owner was very helpfull in getting our luggage from the parking place anyway we could easily manage to carry it.
L'ingresso dell'hotel è un semplice portone verde, all'apertura si presenta una doppia rampa di scale in marmo bianco, molto pulita e di effetto.
L'accoglienza è familiare e le stanze sono pulite e curate nei minimi dettagli. Le stanze si affacciano sulla strada e sulla piazzetta . Chi ama Pisa può raggiungere in un attimo tutte le zone di interesse a piedi tranquillamente, ristoranti e luoghi per passeggiare.
