“Deceptive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Hotel is situated about 100 metres from the railway station and the entrance approach looks intimidating. It is kind of located in a covered terrace between two streets with several convenience stores within the terrace therefore a lot of people hanging around. That was the only fault with the hotel- everything else was okay. Once you entered the hotel it was like entering a different world from the street with its modern environment and multitude of oil paintings adorning the walls throughout the hotel.
The room was of a good sizeas was the bathroom which contained a bath as well as a shower. The decor in the bathroom was a little dated but was clean.
The staff were exremely friendly from the reception right through to the Barman called Guisseppi.

On departure we had a self service continental breakfast at 0430 and a taxi to the Airport was ordered from reception and arrived at the hotel within one minute. By Taxi the hotel is five minutes from the Airport. Would certainly recommend this hotel especially as it only cost 21 euro pppn.

Room Tip: Don't be put off when you arrive at the entrance.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We stayed three nights in Hotel La Pace, very conveniently located near Pisa Railway Station. It is 15 minutes walk over the River Arno to the Campo de Miracoles where the Baptistry, Duomo and Leaning Tower are located, most of the walk being on pedestrianised roads. The access to the hotel is off a dark passageway and the hotel itself looks as if it could do with a face lift.

The room was adequate as was the ensuite bathroom. The wifi was sort of OK but the signal inconsistant. Breakfasts were continental (as you would expect) with hot scrambled egg and sausage if you wanted. Lots of juices, cereal, bread etc.

The bar was seldom occupied and a bit bleak and turned into the breakfast area. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The safe is located in the back office!

This is an older hotel and the area is a little noisy. Also paper thin walls. But the staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English. There's a decent breakfast buffet in the morning. You could do worse. It's also super close to the train station so very convenient when traveling by train. It's easy to walk to restaurants, shopping and most of the major sites of Pisa including the leaning tower (about a 15 minute walk).

I had a single, very small room, BUT it was clean and was good value for money. Just don't expect luxuries. No tea making facilities and no fridge, but the basics were fine. saying that I had a good tv.
The floors are mainly marble and the ceilings high, so you could hear a lot of movement from above and in the corridors. Breakfast was ok but nothing amazing, it was being packed away within seconds of the clock striking 10.
Great location, just 2-3 minutes from the central station

The hotel is in a good location, only 2 minutes from the train station and about 20 minutes from the Leaning Tower. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was alright, but wasn't refreshed frequently enough.

Also, just a tip but when walking to the Leaning Tower from the hotel, go to the right out of the door instead of the left. When we walked down the road to the left, it felt a little dodgy.

The one good thing I can say about this hotel is that they picked me up from the airport as they promised (it was a VERY late flight from Palermo, Sicily). I got to the room too exhausted for words, and was hit by the strange smelling bathroom. It smelled like a combination of up-chuck and number 2. The bed creeped me out. I was so tired that I didn't have the strength to go back downstairs and demand another room, so I just slept down the exact middle of the bed with my clothes on and my hoodie up. Didn't even shower next morning. I just bolted out of there first thing. Would NOT recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Find a different hotel.

Pros:
Very close to the train/bus/taxi station, so very easy to reach.
English and French spoken by the (friendly and helpful) staff at the reception.
You can leave your luggage if you arrive there before the check-in.
Several SKY channels in the rooms.
Wide range of food for your breakfast.
Very beautiful inside.

Cons:
Only one elevator (so it might take quite a lot time to move from one floor to another), plus not next to the stair (which might turn uncomfortable sometimes).
Not a suitable balance to weigh your luggage (which can be a problem if you are travelling with some luggage restriction).
The neighborhood does not seem to be a nice area, even though we did not have any problem (and, actually, this is not a defect of the hotel).
