You can see the Tower of Pisa from this hotel - That's awesome. The building itself is very nice and modern. However, it appears the hotel is severely understaffed and most likely underpaid. I gather this also because the air conditioning in some places, like the 10 X 10 fitness center (which the sun faces directly into making it a sauna) is not even on. When I see things that normally should be working but are turned off, I know - cutting costs.
I've stayed in hundreds of hotels and I've learned the reasons the staff just doesn't care. I'm sure the staff are super nice people, when they go home and can relax. But at the hotel? Nope. Definitely not worth the €350+ per night cost.
Additionally, this hotel serves bus loads of foreign travelers. What a way to spend your morning breakfast - with a cafeteria full of bustling non-Italians.
The rooms and beds are excellent. Nice sheets and blankets, as well as mattresses. But when there are 100 one-night bus tour people all getting up at the same time - 6a - they make quite a bit of noise.
The fitness center is a joke - a 3 meter by 3 meter sweat box - with no air conditioning.
The pool is very nice - big with many places to take the sun.
If you want an authentic Italian experience, or to have a non-stressful time in the hotel, this IS NOT IT.
