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

We would defiantly recommend this hotel, the hotel court yard looks perfect- very idealic and picturesque, the staff were helpful and friendly, the hotel was so interesting, it is an old convent so full of character. You can stay in a modern characterless hotel any day- but this is something special. Brilliant location- short walk from the cities main attractions.... More

This hotel was absolutely perfect. I cannot fault it at all. Set in an old monastery, the rooms are all converted monks cells, with the very basics you'll need such as shower, wardrobe, TV and phone. It's not very fancy at all, but once you go down to the lobby you've got wifi, drinks machine, etc. The staff are incredibly... More
