We arrived in Pisa on the busiest day for the luminaria festival. We couldn't find a room anywhere so we checked in luggage at the station. After dinner in front of the towere we saw this hotel and they had a room! As there had been a cancellation. Basic room with a terrace that had a view of the tower... More

The selling point of this hotel is its location just a couple of blocks away from the tower. The hotel was clean but basic with no frills. Our triple had three beds and not a lot else. The bathroom was small but clean. The breakfast was uninspiring; the coffee was good but everything else was prepackaged.

We stayed at Hotel Francesco in Pisa this weekend because of its location and very reasonable price. We arrived at 9pm at night after being called by the reservation desk and told we had to hurry up and check-in before the desk closed at 10pm. Even though the website and posted material at the hotel says the front desk is... More

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.
