“Good spot for a quick night stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Utilitarian spot with clean beds & shower. It's about a 15-minute walk from the Central Train Station, and about a 25-minute walk to the Garden of Miracles (Leaning Tower of Pisa). It's a bit of a pain checking in even if you have informed them of your arrival time. They have specific times for checking in, and even at those times, it seemed like there was one (overworked) lady handling check-ins, room cleaning, etc. It's best to call the mobile phone number as soon as you reach Pisa and tell them you will be at the hotel shortly. Otherwise, you will definitely be greeted by a locked door, and if you call at that point, you'll have to wait another 10-15 minutes for them to show up and check you in. All this was when we arrived at 1:00-1:30PM, not an unconventional/inconvenient time by any means.
With that said, they did show up within 10-minutes of us calling them, and checked us in right away. Also, they give you a key to the exterior door so you don't have to rely on them when you come in later during the day/night. Ask for this key though, in case they forget to give it to you.
Nothing much to talk about the area around the hotel. Definitely NOT run down - in fact, it seemed like a nice, safe residential area, with a small scattering of restaurants. Most of the action is around the Garden of Miracles, which is not that far away.
The room & bathroom were clean, and served the purpose. They don't offer breakfast, but they do have free Tea/Coffee.
Despite the inconvenience during check-in, the staff is very nice & accommodating. We had a flight out of Pisa later in the afternoon. They requested that we check out by 11:00AM. That was fine as we wanted to walk around a bit during the morning. They offered to store our bags & allowed us to use the bathrooms when we returned.
Overall, a good experience and good value for money.

Friendly and pleasant staff; clean simple room; bed was too hard; quiet location except some aeroplane noise.
