The Royal Victoria is well located for sight seeing, 10 min. walk to Tower. There are lots of bars and restaurants close by.The rooms are clean and comfortable, the décor is a bit tired could do with updating. We found all staff to be friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. Value for money

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The authentic period style from the era of Agatha Christie, offering elegance and class throughout, presented much to view and appreciate. Our room was spacious with all facilities functioning well. We had a balcony enabling a fabulous view over the River Arno with many properties to admire. Whilst our room would have... More

The charme of this historical hotel makes it definetely a great place to stay. Our room with view to the river Arno was clean, old furniture as much aged as the hotel, good beds, bathroom and shower updated. WLAN access in the room. The staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast modest but ok. We did need... More

I liked the staff and I liked the location. It's a place that will take you back in time. The theme is fun... Old Victorian. The hotel is getting a little weary. Happy hour was nice with free wine and snacks. My room... I had a room facing the street so I had a nice view... The street noise about... More

We arrived late here as the first stop of our trip around Italy. The hotel is very traditionally Italian. The staff were lovely. The room.. Very basic. The bed wasn't comfortable at all. My partner tends to move a lot in his sleep and shakes his feet and every single movement made me feel almost seasick. There also seemed to... More

It is difficult to rate this hotel since it is well past its glory days. Faded charm probably best describes the crumbling interior. The public areas are quite well maintained but in our room, a junior suite costing €150 per night, the term shabby chic had been taken to extremes. The frescoed walls were literally crumbling while the antique furniture... More

Picked this hotel due to its location, only 10 mins walk to Leaning Tower of Pisa, 10 mins walk from Pisa train station. The hotel is facing River Arno, however the room that were given was facing the back of the hotel so not much of a view. The lift is very very tiny that only fits 1 person with... More

We stayed for two nights (Saturday and Sunday). The bedroom was spacious but the beds were about to fall apart, and the bathroom was like something out of a horror movie. I said my prayers using the tiny elevator. Other than the location and the great staff there isn't much to recommend.

We stayed at the Royal Victoria for three nights and had a great holiday there. The room was spacious and with a great view (as part of a free upgrade). Staff and service were excellent. Those of you staying in a room at the hotel's front on a Saturday night should be prepared for a somewhat sleepless night - very... More

This's oral is in a fantastic location, right on the river in the town centre. We had to move rooms as there was no hot water, and the whole hotel is old, dated and falling apart. The beds are creaky, the paint work chipped everywhere, the lift is a death trap, breakfast is the same daily... No hot food. Staff... More
