“Clean Budget Option”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I stayed here again a few days ago. My flight into Pisa was arriving late so I wanted a hotel with 24 hour reception. As I had stayed before I knew what to expect and again the bedlinen was spotless. As many reviewers have implied, it is a bit tatty around the edges however at 27 euros for my room it was certainly a bargain. It's not perfect but for value and location it can't be beaten.

Room Tip: Not for the light sleepers. Can be a bit noisy at night.

One lovely evening in Pisa at hotel. Large river facing room, plenty of room as we also had an additional bed. Antiquated but so lovely and from another time, Charming decor, friendly staff - if you want modern don't stay here

A lovely hotel steeped in history with furniture and fittings from the 19th centuary. Although some might say that the decor is in need of a coat of paint in some places, the rooms still remain comfortable, clean and tidy. All the staff were friendly, helpful and speak english. The breakfast was continental, comprehensive and quality with a wide choice. The only negative that I would suggest is the noise from the road at the front of the hotel from traffic and people partying until the early hours may prevent some people from getting a full night's sleep

This Hotel is full of character and charm. The staff were very friendly helpful and courteous. The room was large with fantastic views over the river Arno.
If you are after a 5 star hotel with modern gadgets and in pristine condition, this is not the hotel for you. Instead you will be in a hotel with bags of history and charm. The rooms are not top quality, but are full of interesting furniture and pictures showing the past history of this beautiful hotel.
The airport is five minutes from Pisa Central and a further 15 minute walk to the Hotel through the main shopping precinct.
We stayed 7 days, and would highly recommend this hotel to the discerning traveler, who likes history and charm.
The air-conditioning in the room did not work, but that was not a problem during the time we visited. If you were traveling in the height of summer, this could cause some issues, as to open the window would mean attacks my mosquito's.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front face the main road, and the wall facing the river are used by people at night to...

We had an amazing room, very large, overlooking the river which was ornately decorated & very beautiful (it was shabby chic). Hotel is in a great location with views over the river and 10 minute walk to the leaning tower. Parking is available here for €20per day but it's secure & made life easier for us, check out was at 12pm so we were able to view a bit more of Pisa before leaving. Breakfast was adequate. Price very reasonable €85 for a double including breakfast.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the river.

Had a great 2 night stay at the Royal Victoria, for 65€ a night including breakfast, in a double ensuite room on the top floor with access to the very pretty roof garden, a really good deal.

All the staff were helpful and friendly, and looked after our bags after we had checked out.

Note of caution, a very small lift so not much room for a lot of luggage in one go.

The breakfast was a very good buffet, with plenty of selection. In the hotel lounge/reception area in the early evening you could have an aperitivo, 3€ for a glass of red or white wine, sparkling wine or juice, then help your self to a variety of nibbles, a nice touch, also, you could take it up to the roof garden.

The Royal Victoria is beside the Arno River, so it's a lovely setting for an evening stroll. The leaning tower and the station are a short walk away, so no real need for a car.

If we ever visit Pisa again we will certainly stay here, and would recommend it too.
