It was a pleasant stay for one night as it's located very close to Piazza dei miracoli, the historical square of Pisa. Clean comfortable and with Toscanique decoration. If you plan to stay for more than a night, prefer an en suit room.

A friend and I stayed here for 1 night in June. Despite other reviews saying it was quite hard to find, with a bit of help from Google maps we found our way by foot from the train station within 20 minutes. The room itself was very clean and the air con was a great bonus. However we were on... More

Hotel Helvetia in Pisa - if you go to Pisa, you can stay in this hotel because it is easy to find it, near shops, restaurants, Leaning Tower, bus station and also it is clean :). Also the staff are very professional.

We only had one night in Pisa before flying to Malta. It was so close to the tower, restaurants, and bars. The staff were super friendly and the rooms were great. Definitely recommend this affordable and well located hotel.warning it is a bit of a long walk fromthe train station and airport if you have heavy bags.

It is a two minute walk away from the tower. Basically it sums it all up. At this price its really a good choice, rooms are nice, although could be a bit cleaner. Since it's more a guesthouse note a hotel, there is not much service. But in a location like that, you don't need breakfast or restaurant on site.

We reached Pisa a little late in the evening, and thought we'd go to the hotel, put our luggage there, and then go for the tower. We knew it was quite close, so it shouldn't have been a problem. But when we were close to the hotel, it showed we had to pass a place which looked like a private... More

Literally a stone's throw from the Leaning Tower, the Helvetia is a small, unassuming pensione on the corner of via Don Gaetano Boschi and via Collegio Ricci which gives you the impression of being in a family home. The cat is quite friendly too. The room I had was very comfortable and the bathroom was a good size, well appointed... More

The location as everyone states is perfect. Arriving late at night It was an amazing experience to walk around the corner and have the tower to yourself at night, my daughters breathe was took away! We had asked for the top floor for the views but when we got into our room the third bed hadn't been made up which... More

We stayed here for one night. It is absolutely perfect for location, two steps to the leaning tower of pisa. It is a lovely area, loads of cafes around... And especially around the back of Pisa Tower. The welcoming was great, we could check in early, the room was cosy and the view from the third floor was lovely. The... More
