It's my third time in Pisa and, as usual, we are at Hotel Francesco. Why? Because it's like to be at home in Italy, be from wherever you are: the rooms are cosy, comfortable,very clean, the breakfast is wonderful and the warmness of the staff is amazing. I advise every traveller to stay here, since the quality of this hotel... More

A couple of minutes from the Leaning Tower and not too pricy! The exterior looks like the rest of the street ie nothing to write home about. Inside it is clean, neat , tidy and welcominig. Not the height of luxury but everything works. Breakfast was ample and satisfying and when the weather is good, taken on the rear 1st... More

We only stayed here one night on our way to Florence and I’m glad we didn’t have to stay longer. I’m not sure what a decent hotel costs in Pisa so it’s hard to rate this hotel for relative value. I know it was cheap at 85 Euros, but even at that price I expected more. The rooms were quite... More

This place is a hidden gem.  It is literally down the street from the Leaning tower Of Pisa . The hotel exterior is the same as all of the other buildings in Pisa, old and rustic. But the interior is clean and comfortable and modern. It appears as if it were recently renovated.   Our triple room with 3 single... More

We found the hotel location was brilliant. The room was clean enough, but very small. The bathroom in particular was tiny and made taking a shower quite an acrobatic feat - and we are not large people. But, and it is a very big BUT, the staff are at best disinterested, at worst downright rude! It was too much effort... More

The hotel people are very friendly, the room very cozy, very clean. Furthermore it is very well located in the city center, next to the famous Leaning Tower and in front of a beatiful botanical garden. Although it was rainy, was good to advance in my work in the room facing the street.

I recently stayed at this hotel with my cousin. its a 3 min walk from the tower, and 5 mins (in the other direction) from the main shops/ bars. so a V good location. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English, certainly better than my Italian. We booked 2 rooms (4 nights) and our rooms shared a balcony... More

This small and clean hotel is on the main street leading to the Piazza Duomo, only a couple of minutes from the major attractions. Despite this proximity, our room on the third floor overlooked the Botanic Gardens and was very quiet. Leaning out of our window we could see the top of the famous tower. Our twin room was clean...

Just came back from our vacation in Pisa.There are two good things about the hotel - nice friendly staff and it is situated really close to the tower. The room itself felt like living in a cave. The floor is made of cold stone tiles so we had to put a blanket on it to be able to walk. The... More

We stayed here in the height of summer season. We flew in to Pisa and bases here 2 nights. We booked room with airport transfer. Our flight was very much delayed and when we eventually left airport in Dublin I rang hotel and they had been monitoring flights and knew about delays! We arrived very late at night, driver friendly... More
