A Perfect Room & Owner Passionate About Pisa

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 1, 2013

Comfortable rooms, good directions and recommendations can be had in Italy with a little research. However Michele Grieco the owner of Michele's Guest House transcends above that level and provides a detailed history of Pisa from its glory days up until the presence. He is a gracious owner but also a scholar and encyclopedia of information about Pisa. He lives across the street but was always available when we needed him. However lets go over each part of the accommodations first,

Arrival- We arrived early to the guest house and Michele spotted us walking down the street. He checked us in three hours early without even mentioning the house policy.

A quick story to let you know how wonderful guests feel this place is. While we were checking out a young couple came to pay their bill. They raved about the place and his service and handed over some bills. They loved the place so much that they refused change back from the owner! Now how often does that happen? Star One!

Rooms- We had asked for a room with two twin beds and a shared bathroom. The room provided was with two extra large size twins and furnished nicely. Clean throughout and I even checked under the bed! Just about every convenience that a guest room can have Michele has managed to put in a room. A great tv, sound system, with access to DVD's etc. A fully stocked refrigerator with beer, wine, mineral water, and sodas at no extra price! Coffee and tea service with a few chocolates thrown in for good measure. He also provided us with our own beautiful bathroom across from our room at no extra cost. Star Two!

Bathroom- The bathroom being functional and nicely furnished. However what set it apart from others was that the shower had a beautiful series of photographs set in the tile of the Arno River. One other he showed us had photos of the Cinque Terre. Another Star!

Lounge Area- There is a small lounge area that includes the breakfast room. Michele has an extensive collection of guide and picture books about Italy. While waiting for him to finish with another client I delved into several books about Umbria and Tuscany which assisted in future travels.

Breakfast- One of the best breakfasts we had in 25 days in Italy! Everything you can think of it was there. Great meats and cheeses. Delicious cakes, cereals, and breads! A selection of fresh fruit including strawberries. Excellent coffee! I am sure I am forgetting other things. Star Four!

If you decide to book this b and b be sure and use their web site;

Unique Quality: Michele himself is the most unique quality of this bed and breakfast. He is a freelance photographer and engineer by training but is extremely well versed in not only the history of Pisa but all of Italy. He routinely picks up guests at the airport for no charge! Despite the demands of his job he will talk to you and provide helpful suggestions on what to see, feel and smell while in Pisa at all hours of the days. I suggested that he made spokesperson for the Pisa Chamber of Commerce.

When I indicated to him that I would like to borrow a computer for a few minutes he went across the street and brought me back a laptop. He just asked that I bring it back in the morning! Star Five for this wonderful place!

We will someday be back to Pisa and there is no doubt that we will stay here again!

Directions: An easy two block walk from the Pisa Train Station.

Within close proximity of both the airport (800 m) and the train station (100 m), this accommodation is aptly suited for those wishing to explore the city. Michele offers two guestrooms, one with a double bed, one with two singles, and a shared bathroom with shower.
