Perhaps unfit for a queen, but it has a certain serenity and faded grandeur that is hard to compare. Room was very large if a touch Spartan, with 50’s furniture. Great view over the river from the window (which does open – when you know the knack). Bed large and very comfortable. I couldn’t quite make out whether the bathroom... More

Both Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor suggested this would be a good place to stay and how right they were. Beautiful building with genuinely helpful and friendly staff and a great base for Pisa and the surrounds. We had a lovely room which like the whole hotel had a slightly 'well worn' air but this just made it feel warm... More

I was staying Pisa to be close to LAJORTICA where Andrea Bocelli concert was to be. I needed help getting to and from the hotel to the concert and the staff spent time researching buses online and shuttle options. They also got taxis for pick-up in minutes, presented maps for clarification, knew the closest banks, etc. and did it all... More

Well worth a visit for the characterful interior, and the location on the Arno river front. It is a very old hotel full of antique furniture (in the rooms as well as public areas). The roof terrace is lovely, with lots of plants, sofas, and tables and chairs, (although the only views are of nearby rooftops) and the staff will... More

We have visited short stays twice in this lovely and cozy hotel. Each time the visit has been very nice. The small roof terrace is wonderful, especially in the early spring, when arriving from the still so cold Finland to welcome the sun and warmth and scents of spring. On my birthday we got a very nice room as a... More

We visited this hotel in July when even the Italians were complaining about the heat. Pisa was really hot but our room had glorious air conditioning - most welcome! We arrived in our hire Fiat 500 from the airport and drove through tiny backstreets to a car park. On our first morning, breakfast in the dining room was a lovely... More

Stayed for one night in August 2015. Great location, no more than a 5/10 minute walk to major tourist sites (leaning tower etc) and restaurants and bars. It's good value, but don't expect too much. It's extremely dated in decor, and surprised us a little when we arrived. No air conditioning could be a problem, but our room had a... More

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
