We stayed overnight at Le Piagge with Giorgio between our arrival at Pisa airport and our onward journey the next day. We chose Le Piagge based on Tripadvisor recommendations.
After we phoned Giorgio from baggage claim at Pisa airport, he came straight out to pick us up. Le Piagge is several minutes drive out of the centre of Pisa, but Giorgio's personal taxi service makes up for this. On arrival at Le Piagge, we were welcomed by his huge dog (don't worry, she's very friendly and well-trained).
The room itself was modern, spacious and cool with a good en-suite bathroom and plenty of storage.
After we had freshened up, he took us into Piazza del Duomo, on the way showing us where to meet him for the journey home and giving us a quick tour of the city.
The only real drawback of Le Piagge is that it is right under the flight path of Pisa airport. Although the flights do stop overnight, you won't need an alarm clock when the first one comes over in the morning.
Breakfast came with pastries and good coffee; we had a walk around the area (the local church tower also leans). Giorgio then took us back to the airport.
The aircraft noise and distance from the centre probably mean that we would choose somewhere else if we were staying several nights in Pisa, but for a stopover of a night or two, we would recommend Le Piagge and would certainly book again if passing through Pisa airport - Giorgio's service to and from the airport is wonderful value and Giorgio himself is a great character.
