We stayed 4 nights in this hotel recently and it was absolutely fabulous. Loved it so much, I must have taken more pictures in a hotel, then Pisa itself. It felt like traveling back in time while we stayed there. Hotel even has one of those old telephone booths in a lobby and I think phone even had signal! Building itself is very grand, all furniture looks authentic antiques. Nothing seemed to have been changed from original. In one of reviews before booking this hotel I read that it has not been ruined by restoration and it could not be more truth. There are some cracks, there are some places with pain pealing and all this just gives it more charm.
Besides the absolute beautiful charm of hotel and it's most authentic atmosphere, it had flat screen TV, clean towers and bedding. Hotel maybe old, but it was really clean, which impressed us. Not all rooms have bathrooms I believe, but we made sure we booked room with one and while it was very small, it was perfectly suitable for our needs. Room itself, was very spacious with a nice view.
Location is perfect, it is walking distance from Pisa towel and all restaurants and it is almost same distance to train station where you can take train to Florence or anywhere else. Taxi ride from airport was 10 euros.
Absolutely recommend stay in this hotel and if you do, do wonder around it a bit. It has lots of interesting features. For example 4th floor terrace is amazing chill zone, add a bottle of wine from the hotel which is only 9 euros and it is perfect :) This hotel is not just lobby and rooms, walk around it, explore it. It does have museum atmosphere to it in some places, especially authentic kitchen at a back of breakfast room and there was other features that just made us go aw.
