I have recently returned from a few nights at Relais Sassetti.
This is a wonderful B&B in a very central location. Simona was a wonderful host who provided you with maps, information and some very good tips for where to eat in the area (The spaghetteria around the corner is excellent).
It was very hot in Pisa while we were there (35ºC +) but very comfortable in the Well room with the little windows open. The room was silent and we never noticed any noise. The original fresco on the ceiling were nice and added to the character of the place.
The central courtyard was a cool, quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle outside, a nice place to relax a little and watch the tortoises move around.
The breakfast was the usual continental affair which was very nice, served in the little breakfast room.
We enjoyed our stay in Pisa as it formed a good base to see other local things in the area (Lucca, Cinque Terre) which are easily assessable on the trains which we found good and inexpensive (compared to the UK).
We will definitely return to this B/B because of its location, character and it is very good value when compared to others we stayed in around Italy.More
