3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is an old hotel with a rich history. Magnificent interior of rooms, halls and terrace.
Perfect location.
At the New Year & Christmas holidays arranged room of Santa Claus - it is Fabulous.

-
Breakfast can not be called diverse.
Hotel staff are very different. Friendly young men but not affable lady.

Room Tip: I recommend this hotel to those enjoy of antiques and who are looking for new experiences.

This is the fifth time I have stayed at the Royal Victoria. It's old world splendor is one of the reasons I return and will continue to do so. The rooms and public ares a furnished with genuine antiques, the floors and ceilings are beautifully tiled and painted with frescos. The hotel is situated perfectly for shopping, sightseeing and transport links.
We stayed for 3 nights over the New Year period and were right in the midst of all the wonderful celebrations. As always the staff without exception are professional and very polite. The breakfast is exceptionally good and you can take your time and choose from a wide range of items. All I can say is long may this hotel continue to provide it's first class service. A true vintage gem!

Room Tip: If noise bothers ou ask for a room at the back or side, or take ear plugs.

This hotel is in a perfect location for walking to the Tower of Pisa and the Train station. It is also right on the river with great views. The hotel has a long history and is charming in nature. The staff could not be more helpful and the room was excellent quality. I'm sure the hotel will have some investment in the future but this is a great hotel in a great location.

The hotel was great and nice, compared to the price, we didn't expect such an excellent service and environment. Very close to the bus station and easy to reach. We spent only one night there and it was a perfect night in Pisa. We would love to come back again if we visit Pisa.

The hotel is old and has plenty of charm. The rooms are a bit tired...but very comfortable and clean. The location right on the River Arno is fantastic...and a short walk to great restaurants and sights. Staff very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

The title say it all... Located on the banks of the river and less than 15 minutes walk from the leaning Tower. The hotel is old in style and the lift was a little like something you would have expected in the 1950s. The staff were really friendly and helpful. There is a lovely little roof terrace which is the perfect spot for aperitif (which was good value at €3 for a glass of prosecco and a small plate of nibbles). Rooms are a little cramped but nothing that you wouldn't expect from a city center hotel - especially one of this age. But don't let the age of the property put you off - it has loads of character and I would certainly stay again (if I were to return to Pisa).

We stayed on what turned out to be the hottest day of the summer and unfortunately our air con was broken. Very little attempt was made to fix it (we told them before we went out for dinner and came back to find nothing had changed). They did give us a fan to use for the night which helped (but only mildly).

Buffet breakfast was really good and they even have options for those with wheat / gluten intolerance.

Hotel is about €10 taxi ride from the airport.

We stayed at the Royal Victoria Hotel for two nights. It's wonderfully located near the river and the wonderful walking street which goes right to the leaning tower. The rooms were find nothing really special, staff very nice and a beautiful garden on the rooftop. The first night was a Friday and very noisy as it is near where the students hang out, the next night was completely quiet (go figure). It was within walking distance of the train and near a wonderful walking street filled with families and students. We loved it there.
