What a S hole this place is. The rooms are dated, dirty and is poor state of repair. Our electrics in our room barely worked, the shower leaked, the tiles were loose and broken on the floor, the beds were old and uncomfortable, the pillows were like bags of sand, the mesh of the windows missing or ripped so the...

Enjoy views over the Arno river and art nouveau interior details. Original furnishings that Charles Dickens and Henry James would have experiences, when they stayed here! Old world charm, friendly staff and air con, plus buffet breakfast. Easy to walk to the station, and to the leaning tower!

The location of the hotel is great, next to the river, 5 minutes from the train station and 10 from the airport. The hotel is in need of some love and attention, from one of the court yard it looks like they have ran out of funds during some upgrading works. The staff are friendly, and speak several languages, plenty... More

on our way to Florence and arriving on a late plane, we decided to book here and didn't do any checking. What a fantastic surprise, huge room at the front with an amazing view of the river. The building is old with matching period furniture that perfectly suits it. The best thing is the staff, they couldn't have been more... More

we have just returned from a fantastic 4 night stay at the Royal Victoria hotel. The hotel is situated beside the river Arno, right in the centre of Pisa. Location is perfect for attractions and bars/restaurants. Also the hotel is only a 10 minute taxi journey from the airport ( 15 euros). In this family owned 13th century hotel the... More

What an absolute shame. This once graceful building has been so neglected and yet it could be restored if the owners were prepared to re-invest in it. We knew when we booked that the accommodation would not be great, but as we were in Pisa specifically for the Festival of the Lights (Luminaria) the hotel's position right on the river,... More

We'd been forewarned on TripAdvisor to request a room in the back. As we were flying in via Rome, and expected to be tired and in need of a good night's sleep, we did indeed book a "classic" room in the back. When we arrived, the room had been assigned someone else and we were told we were getting an... More

Just left after staying for the night. Our room was small which was fine but the bed was uncomfortable and old. Neither of us slept a wink due to a combination of the noise from the street outside, people in the hotel and the bad air-con. Can't recommend it I'm afraid though it is in a good location. Just bring... More

This was our fourth stay here. The bedroom and the bathroom were large and while period furniture would have been to much to expect, overall the ambiance suited the rooms. The staff are very good indeed, and try to overcome problems. But problems exist:the air conditioning in the room would quit after an hour or so, making it necessary to... More
