We fully recommend the Minerva. Very clean Very helpful, attentive and friendly staff. Very good selection for breakfast with choice of coffee (capucchino excellent). Within easy walking distance to see all the sights of Pisa especially the tower. If and when We return to Pisa we will definitely stay in the Minerva.

Nice little hotel, great location. Staff were really freindly and helpful. Breakfast was basic but fresh and tasty, excellent coffee. We would 100% stay again. Close to airport and city centre, excellent place to stay and use as a base to explore pisa, florence and tuscany.

We have staid here with a group of nine guys, just for the night in order to visit the city and its tourist sites. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, the rooms were big and the beds confortabel. This is not the best family hotel but very good if you travel in group with young people.

We have just returned from our 10 night stay at this hotel and have had a lovely holiday. We used Pisa as our base in order to travel to some other Tuscan delights. This Hotel is very good value for money. Rita and her son and staff are very friendly and hard working. The building is a beautiful 400+ year... More

This year we had deciced to make a short tour across Toscany. First of all we stayed for one night in Pisa and had chosen the Hotel Minerva. We had been afraid of non-english speaking personnel. But we were very surprised by the lady behind the reception desk. She totally impressed us. She is a very kind, friendly and helpful... More

As soon as we entered the hotel my husband and I were greeted by a young male who was very friendly and spoke excellent English. There is no elevator but the receptionist helped carry our bags. He also gave us a map explaining the local attractions and good places to eat. Would definitely stay again.

Many hotels in Pisa close early and our original choice was one of those. We found this one at 12 AM. Clean but small rooms and uncomfortable beds. They did offer a continental breakfast however for the overall price that was still a stretch.

What this hotel lacks in terms of class, it makes up in the friendliness of its extremely helpful staff. I stayed for five nights here at a recent conference. I think it is probably a family-run business. Mother and son could not have been more helpful. It is fairly central and within easy walking distance to the centre of the... More

This hotel is probably the worst budget hotel I have ever stayed in. Check-in was an indifferent affair. The desk clerk was more interested in his computer emails than checking us in. There is a mouldy smell as soon as one enters the upstairs area. The room was shabby and unappealing. We asked for a taxi to be ordered for... More

Just outside the historic centre but a pleasant five minute walk there. Room not huge but sufficient. Spotlessly clean. Bed comfortable. Staff friendly and very accommodating. Very good price. Nothing outstanding but I recommend it highly
