Stayed here on a previous visit to Pisa and would have liked to stay again, but all enquiries showed up as "dates unavailable". One evening we went for a walk and the place is closed up, which is a great shame: has it changed hands? We weren't around this area during the day so have no idea if building work... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and served as an excellent base for exploring the Tuscany area. It's a converted monastery so the rooms/monks cells are quite basic - but then that adds to the charm - however they are comfortable and the bathroom was modern and suited our needs. The real winner with this hotel is the gorgeous courtyard and... More

Very very basic rooms and given sheets to use as towels, which was fun, but rooms are very clean and beds comfy, communal areas charming and very picturesque! The breakfast was good and sat in courtyard listening to bells lovely! Good as a base for exploring Pisa and Florence. Local restaurants great value and welcoming.

Really lovely building with lots of character as it is a converted monastery, beautiful surroundings but the room itself is VERY basic so don't come looking for luxury or all mod cons but def worth a visit.

We stayed here in July 2012. We just wanted somewhere cheap and basic to base ourselves as it was going to be a busy few days of sight seeing. It was about a 15 minute walk to the main attractions in Pisa (Leaning towel, etc.) and about 20 minutes to the train station. The church bells rang every morning and... More

We stayed here for two nights in October. Easy walk to main part of Pisa, very affordable and comfortable. We didn't spend much time at the actual hotel, but it was a nice place to base ourselves for a few days. Service was basic but not bad.

I've never stayed in a place with as much character as Santa Croce which we stayed at in November 2010. If you are looking for a hotel with all the mod cons with entertainment on a nightly basis then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a place which is quiet, comfortable and peaceful then I'd... More

Brilliant place in Pisa, with heaps of history. The hotel preserved a lot of it's previous character as a monastery, with a gorgeous cloister in the middle. We stayed there in May 2011. Our room was basic, but perfectly adequate, with small but well appointed bathroom. Breakfast was very nice eaten in the shade of the cloister. Good location, in... More

This is a very basic hotel in that there are no flat screen TV's or Jacuzzi baths...it was a monastery and still retains many of it's original features, rooms are basic but comfortable and the place has a very unique feel. A basic but adequate breakfast can be had overlooking central gardens. If you are a Hilton aficionado this is... More

This hotel has so much character, as it's a converted monastery. The staff were friendly and gave us detailed information on any of the questions we asked. The rooms are basic, so if you're looking for luxury this isn't the place for you, but the surroundings are not something you find in a generic hotel and you will be lucky... More
