I have stayed dozens of times at the Royal Victoria as a work project kept me coming back to Pisa many times over the course of the past year and a half. I have also stayed there with my family. Some locals dismiss the big old place as a "hotel for little old English ladies," but I find it charming and genuine. If you do not need to stay at a place in Pisa with the Leaning Tower hovering over your head, the location is superb. Right on the Arno River, the hotel is surrounded by the best (non-touristy) restaurants in the city and provides a welcome relief from the insanity that envelopes the Tower. Still, it is only a fifteen-minute walk from all of that. The hotel has been managed by the same family for many generations, and its staff is made up of loyal, long-time employees. They are uniformly cheerful and helpful. I love waking up to the view of the river through its soaring double windows, the spacious old bathrooms, and the charming common rooms. In the summer I open the windows. In the winter there is plenty of central heating. If you are sensitive to street noise, ask for a room on a higher floor. I cannot recommend the Royal Victoria Hotel too highly and cannot wait to return.
