We were lucky to find this hotel and stayed here for a few days sightseeing. The duomo is maybe three minutes walk away, and so after dinner each evening we strolled into the square to marvel at the incredible architecture. It was also only around 15-20 minutes walk to search out places to eat in the less touristy area of the Oltrano, across the Ponte Veccio and turn right. The bus/ train station couldn't have been more than a ten minute walk, so I'd challenge anyone to find a better location. We used the terravision bus to travel each way from Pisa airport, which was very cheap and reliable. The mercato centrale was just near the station and their first floor cafes are excellent for a coffee or a snack.
The room ...122 on the first floor....boasted a hallway with large wardrobe, then a further door led to the bathroom, complete with bathrobes and slippers. A separate door then led into the bedroom, with a very clean and comfy bed which was a real "home from home" experience. No views from the window but as a result, the room was very quiet and away from any outside noise; in any case, the duomo square was a more than adequate compensation for a window view!
Breakfast was very adequate with all the usual fare....cold meats/cheeses/fruit.....croissants and pastries.....hot dishes and so on. Staff were without exception very helpful and courteous.
There was no trouble finding well priced , good value restaurants all around.
Certainly would return.
