Very handy for the A11/A12 and the airport, so great if driving and looking to stop off before getting a plane the next day. Very large car park too.
Staff are really nice and welcoming, and very helpful if you need advice. All spoke really good English, so this is a handy hotel if you don't speak Italian. The hotel is also a short drive, or about a 15 minute walk to the leaning tower, though this is through an underpass which may spook some people late at night. The main area of Pisa is another 10 minutes walk from the tower, so although the hotel is on the outskirts, nothing is particularly far away.
Other plus side was that breakfast was really good - usual buffet breakfast, but well above the average even though the fruit juice machine dispensed surprisingly low quality juice.
Only down side, the bar didn't have any Italian beer - just Becks, though they did say they had sold out due to the conference which was on that day, who all seemed to be dining in the hotel.
In Summary, great place to stay, easy option if you have a car, and best of all, if it's a rental as there are two petrol stations round the corner on the SS1 (Strada Statale 1 Aurelia), so you can fill up before dropping off your rental car.
Finally, if you do stay here, make an effort to go and look at the leaning tower - it's pretty awesome, and leans far more than you imagine.
