Stopped here for one night, when visited Pisa. Travelled up from Rome and was flying out the next day from Pisa, so only a flying visit.
Hotel was great, really great looking, nice features, excellent location, good people. Room was huge and bathroom was nice.
Drinks and nibbles on roof terrace for €3 was a nice touch. Breakfast was everything you wanted out of a continental.
Would def visit again and would def stay here, top notch hotel indeed.

Before booking this hotel I read some positive reviews and I thought that I should give it a go. The hotel is located by the river and it is close to almost everything so it was really easy to find. When we entered we were really impressed by the decor. You could sense that it used to be a great hotel. The reception area was beautiful and full of antiques. We were given room 308 and that was when all the above positive aspects were forgotten at once.
The room was small, the furniture was tired, very old fashioned and just ugly. The walls had never been cleaned. You could see shoe prints and all sort of marks. Under the bed there was dust and fluff from at least a couple of years and you could barely see through the dirty windows.
But the worst was the bed. This was probably the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. I woke up the next day with pains in my neck and back. It was dreadful.
Yes you can see that the hotel used to be great and grand but at the end of the day you spend your night in a room and if this experience is just terrible then I'm sorry but I cannot give a good review.

Wery interesting place to stay. Good lacation, good breakfest. Standard of rooms strongly depend on price, but even for 16euros/person you can have decent (clean) room with toilet outsite but next to the door. Breakfest is a big advantage.

Unfortunately my stay at this hotel was on a very noisy Friday night and I managed to get little sleep and had to get up at 4am for an early flight! The Hotel itself was nice and full of character but my room disappointing and unfortunately not very clean...I had to pull out my bed to find a socket to charge my phone and it seemed the bed had not been pulled out for some time! Will not be going back!

I have only compliments about this hotel as to me it added to the whole experience of the holiday. It oozed charm and it felt like I'd stepped back it time to a different age.

It has a great location and was a 10 minute walk from the bus/train station. Equally it was only 10 minutes to the Tower.

It doesn't have all the mod-cons but to me I'd have been disappointed if it had. If you are wanting a piece of historic Pisa to accompany your holiday then this is the place. The rooms were clean and the water was hot. There was a bit of noise on an evening but this is because it's near to the most popular bar in Pisa, not a problem for me.

There's a nice terrace at on the top floor towards the rear and the hotel do a nice aperitivo which is great value and you help yourself. Most of the bars nearby do this which is a great alternative to an evening meal.

There is also a lively sqaure a few minutes behind the hotel that do great takeaway pizza which you can eat with a beer in the square.

I'd would definitely go back to this hotel as it offered great value, location and atmosphere.

This hotel is situated on the banks of the River Arno in the heart of Pisa, about 10 minutes' walk from the Leaning Tower. In days gone by it would have been considered quite grand and luxurious - as witnessed by the number of aristocrats and celebrities who appear to have stayed there. Nowadays, it's not quite in that category and not everything works quite as it should (as rightly noted by the Rough Guide) - eg, our shower didn't drain properly. However, this was more than made up for by the general old-fashioned charm of the hotel; a highlight for us was the reading room with portraits of European crowned heads on the walls. Another treat was the sumptuous apéritif buffet available in the lobby (at 3 euros a head); you can take your apéritif up to the delightful cactus-laden roof terrace. Breakfast is served in the spacious Salo di Pranzo. Generally speaking, the staff were polite and helpful - ask for the envelope detailing the history of the hotel.
