“Good location for Pisa Sightseeing - and close to Train Station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Reasonably priced hotel, just over the river from the main sights in Pisa which are a pleasant 15-20 mins stroll away. Taxi from the airport was around 12 euros. Local bus stops outside hotel if that is your preferred method of travel and the Train Station was only 10-15 mins walk away as well.

Hotel itself was reasonable, what you would expect from an Italian City hotel in an older part of town. For us the important elements where Air Conditioning, Wi-Fi, close to walk to sights and restaurants – and the Hotel Bologna had all of these.

We had a room for three – couple plus daughter - and this worked out fine with a double bed and a single bed in the same room. Our room was at the back of the hotel, but the street at the front seemed quite enough.

Breakfast was OK. Staff friendly enough and those that we dealt with spoke English. All in all a good solid choice of Hotel, especially for a short 1-2 nights visit to Pisa.

Stayed for 2 nights, collected from airport by hotel's transport, 10mins to hotel booked in quickly. Note left offering prosecco in the bar to celebrate our anniversary. Lovely chilled beverage coupled with the hotel's aperitivo offering, good start. Clean and quiet room, only downside was bathroom size coupled with folding door, we had to open the shower doors to leave room for elbows to sit down. Great idea was to offer water foc in minibar, big thumbs up for that. Breakfast was decent with good choice. All in all a good stay, although watch out for the mozzys and wasps on terrace.

Stayed only one night on our arrival into Italy. Pleasant reception staff members who spoke English both at check-in and then departure. We caught a taxi from the airport for about E11. The hotel is in a reasonable location and is within easy walking distances both to the Tower (15-20 minutes) and to the Train Station (10 minutes). Breakfast was of a good standard with plenty of choice.
The standard room was clean, fairly modern and the overall ambiance of the hotel is definitely 4 stars. We had a back room and the noise level overnight was not an issue.
Pisa city is well worth more than a half day stop.

Room Tip: A back room off the street facing the courtyard should be quieter.

Lovely clean hotel in a good position. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast good. Rooms clean and what you would expect for this star rating. I would stay again! A bonus is being near the train station as well as shops and restaurants.

We stayed here for 3 nights. I had been there 2 years ago and really loved the helpful, friendly staff and they were still wonderful. It's easy to walk to the tower and cathedral area. We loved the double paned windows which afforded peace and quiet in a noisy city. The breakfast was large and varied and we took a wicker tray outside to the terrace and enjoyed our meal in the air. It's very easy to take side trips so we spent a lovely day in beautiful Siena. The price is right for all the amenities and VERY helpful, VERY pleasant staff......something not found everywhere and worth it's weight in gold!

If you are coming to Pisa just to look at the legendary leaning tower think again. Do yourself and your co-travellers a favour and stop a night or two at the Bologna Hotel Pisa. Located down the narrow and inconspicuous Via Mazzini , it is an 8 minute easy walk from the Pisa railway station.
To take a taxi means it has to do a long loop around Pisa to cope with one way only streets.
You can walk in the same time. Even my cab driver was embarrassed by the cost for a simple straight line journey and said so. The Hotel is beautifully and Italian tastefully fitted out. Adequate room sizes includes bathrooms and shower cubicles. Very inexpensive on my advance purchase.
Local restaurants are happily and correctly recommended from Reception. Just do it.
By the way the tower is actually spectacular as is the shopping for Madame.

I was at the hotel for one night and it was absolutely fine. I had booked a single room and it was fairly small and tucked into a building behind the main building, next to car park. Had I been staying for longer this might have been disappointing. It's about 10 minutes walk from the railway station. The staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was OK but very busy so it wasn't a very relaxed experience.
