nice B&B in the centre of PisaPosted 03-Nov-2013
Pros: Breakfast was very good & the proprietor is very helpful most of the time. The rooms were very clean.
Cons: Other ways of payment except for cash. Also, being able to stay in the same room for the whole stay.
Location: Very near Tower of Pisa & the Duomo. Not far from the picturesque town of Lucca & from Florence.
lovely little bed & breakfast but there were some issues. I booked a single room as I was travelling alone. I was aware that the proprietor did not speak English as noted in some of the other reviews & he really doesn't. He welcomed me & helped me with my bags as the B&B as up 2 flights of stairs. The décor was very kitsch but very clean. The proprietor led me to my room which turned out to be a double. I was very pleased. The room was very clean with on suite bathroom as described. The breakfast was prepared by the proprietor - he could not have been more helpful (but will try & insist that you drink coffee at breakfast).The breakfast was very good - fresh focaccia & cheese & salami plus fresh sweet pastries with fruit juice. Cereal/ crackers & bread are also available. The only down side was that on the last night when I returned, I was asked to move rooms to a single as they had a couple arriving. I did not expect to move rooms at this point. I did not expect to have a double room but I did expect to stay in the same room for my whole stay, not move rooms on my last night when I was very tired & was flying early in the morning. This marred my stay. The other thing to note is that although Expedia takes back up payment through credit car, the proprietor only takes cash payment.

Authentic Italian B & BPosted 27-Oct-2013
Cons: Signage could be improved as we had difficulty finding the entrance. Fortunately the owner was watching for us and called from an upstairs window!
Quaint, upstairs apartment in an ideal, central position yet very quiet. The charming, helpful host provided an excellent breakfast which included cheese, meats and delicious fresh pastries.

Quaint, friendly, homely - Italian.Posted 13-Oct-2013
Pros: Real Italy!
Cons: Not a lot.
Location: Cathederal, Tower, train station for days out. Shops Restaurants Not disabled friendly.
Don't expect to get a Taxis here from the airport as they are not happy for such a short journey. Bus is cheap and fast to train station then a 10 min walk to Hotel. The owner is a very nice Italian gent who with sign language and fingers explains everything. He prepares breakfast in front of you in his kitchen. No english spoken at all but not an issue (this includes the TV) Just off main street and close to Tower!

Character and value in good locationPosted 22-Sep-2013
Pros: The room was clean and comfortable with good air-conditioning. Excellent location. Warm welcome from the owner Benito. Good breakfast.
Cons: The only downside is having to go up three floors with no lift, otherwise this hotel was exactly what we wanted.
Location: Located just off a vibrant street with lots of local life and close to the main sights of Pisa. The railway station is within walking distance.
We booked Due Borghi based on on-line reviews and were not disappointed. We loved its character and felt immediately drawn into the Italian experience. The owner, Benito, is delightful and welcomed us like one of his family. The hotel is quietly located just off one of Pisa's main streets and close to all sights and amenities. Benito recommended the restaurant on the ground floor of the building where we had a good meal at a reasonable price and we enjoyed the Tuscan breakfast. To get to the hotel you have to go up three floors and there's no lift, so it wouldn't suit everyone. Also some of the rooms are up another floor via a spiral staircase. Take cash as credit cards aren't accepted. Benito doesn't speak English, but is so friendly it really doesn't matter! We only stayed a night, but this hotel could work for a longer stay as there are plenty of places within a day trip of Pisa and public transport is easily accessible. It's perfect for anyone wanting local colour, convenience and value for money.

Excellent ExperiencePosted 01-Sep-2013 on Hotels.com
This is more of a hostel than a hotel, so when we reserved late the owner wasn't there when we arrived, but after giving him a call the experience was exemplary, he showed up in a few minutes, let us in to our very reasonably priced and comfortable apartment, and served us breakfast himself the next morning. What initially seemed like it was going to be a very inconvenient stay ended up being one of the best experiences of oue trip, I absolutely loved the city and in particular the experience at this hotel. The owner does not speak English, but he is more than capable of communicating with guests, and one of the friendliest people we met.

Nice host, noisy (but pleasant) roomsPosted 22-Jul-2013 on Hotels.com
Benito is a good host, and the rooms are all very well kept, with air conditioner and charming atmosphere. Remember you must PAY CASH AT THE HOTEL as the credit card is only used to reserve the room

Our honeymoonPosted 18-Jul-2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed at due borghi only for one night.the building was a little old but had lots of character. The hotelier was lovely. He welcomed us with a smile even though we arrived late at night. The breakfast was great - a real Italian home kitchen experience.

Lovely characterful roomsPosted 26-Jun-2013
Pros: Character of the house and rooms.
Location: Fabulous location right off a lovely street with great shops. Only a few minutes walk from the tower. We loved Pisa and would go back in a heartbeat.
We loved our stay here. Previous reviewers have sometimes commented on the language barrier but we managed absolutely fine. Waving of hands and google translate goes a long way! Lovely room, great location. Breakfast was great, especially after the awful standard staleness at a chain hotel in Florence.

A little taste of authentic ItalyPosted 23-Jun-2013
If you a looking for an authentic taste of Italy then the Due Borghi is the place to stay. It is situated down a little alley off one of the main street of shops and cafes in Pisa. Benito, the owner speaks no English, but he is so warm and welcoming than you somehow understand each other with gestures and it he adds to the charm of staying there. The bed rooms are up several flights of stone steps, so take this into consideration if you have mobility problems. Rooms are decorated in typical Italian style with dark woods. They are small, but more than adequate. Free Wi-Fi is available. Remember to take your own toiletries as only liquid soap is provided. Breakfast is lovely, Benito serves you himself and we felt like his personal guests rather than paying guests. Breakfast starts with a sweet pastry followed by cheeses and meats and Italian bread. Benito kept urging us to eat. This delightfull B&S is in a great location being only 15 minutes walk from the train station and about the same distance to the leaning tower. We have assured Benito that we will be back. You really can't beat this place if you are looking for a budget hotel in the heart of Pisa.
