I'm not particularly picky about economy lodging at vacation sites; being in a good location near the sites we're visiting and having the basics we need are most important. This hotel is in a great location within walking distance to nearly everything. However, keep in mind that Pisa can be walked end-to-end, from nearly any location, in just a few minutes. Therefore, nearly any centrally located hotel near the river will put you within walking distance of the train station and the historic sites, just as this place does. Aside from that, the place has history and character. Wide marble staircases, old wood doors, and antiques give the place charm. The breakfast was okay--adequate--but not spectacular (coffee was the best part). The downsides: we didn't have hot water most of the time. We had no warm water at night and only had hot water on one morning among the two we were there. Internet was down and not available from the rooms or main lobby area. However, funny enough, they had "emergency" access that we were able to access/use if we sat in a very specific chair in the lobby (not kidding). Customer service was above average, and the price was right, but I think any modern hotel should be able to provide hot water and internet service.
