“Good cost benefit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Excellent breakfast.

Hotel elevator, great staff and great value for money.

Very close to central station, but with a strange neighborhood.

We used as a base for exploring Pisa and Cinque Terre, and return from bologna to florence.

Right next to pisa centrale and we found it easy to find a parking spot outside. An auld but half decent room, a friendly welcome and a super breakfast. There clearly was a pride in the presentation of the breakfast too.

Fine for the price, very good for family bed arrangements. Also well placed for the train station
and visiting the tower. Quite central although we had some difficulty finding the hotel as it is down a little pedestrian side street.

Hotel La Pace in Pisa is a hotel located really close to Pisa Central Station, which is great, since it takes no more than 3 minutes to walk from the trainstation to the hotel. The staff also speaks decent english and they're friendly and helpful, but it basically stops there. The rest of the hotel (cleanliness, rooms, value etc.) is absolutely not bad, but it's just basically average. Do not expect anything more than that. Which basically also describes Pisa, by my opinion. Pisa has the leaning tower, but that's it.
So to summarize: Stay one day in Pisa and see the leaning tower. Spend the night at Hotel La Pace for a good night sleep, and then get out of there. Remember: It's only a 3 minute walk from the hotel to the trainstation.

I am not sure based on other reviewers if this hotel differs by floor but this was one of the worst rooms I have ever stayed in!

The positives is that it is very close and accessible from the train station and as stated the TVs do have SKY sport and the desk staff are welcoming enough but that is probably were it ends.

The entrance is down an ally and this is extremely dodgy with a lot of the same types who are offering 'help' to people at the train station just hanging around - It did become a bit of a concern when coming back late at night. The room itself was just awful - I don't think the place has been decorated since Galileo lived in the town! There is quite a musty smell around the place, and the only two plugs in the room are taken up by the TV/SKY. When i tried to pull them out to charge my phone the plug started making sharp electrical noise. The mattress on bed was like concrete, and the bathroom was really smelly and dirty.

Pisa probably doesn't need an overnight stay if you are only there to see the tower, but one night was certainly enough for me

From the Pisa central railway station, after reaching there by a direct bus from the airport, the hotel is about 5 minutes walk. The access to the hotel may not be appealing as there shops along the main and side corridor to the hotel. Once inside the appearance is really nice. The room was spacious with good bathroom. Though our booking did not include breakfast, the 7 Euro breakfast buffet was very good. The places of interest easy reachable from the buses at the station. Take a day trip to Cinque Terra by taking train to La Spezia and transferring to the train going to the scenic Cinque Terra stations.

The staff could not be more warm, welcoming and helpful. The room is basic, however, clean and very comfortable beds, and a nice bathroom. In other words..... very good value for money.

THIS IS A WARNING. Its nothing to do with the hotel. When you turn right out of the front of the hotel, and then left on the covered walkway, you will come to Caffe Gambrinus. If you look it up on T.A. you will read that it rips off tourists ALL THE TIME, including us. You will see my review on there if you wish to read it and be more informed.

Personally, I would advise you not to spend a penny there, as you will have hassle no doubt from the bandits who run it. Walk over the street, and on the right corner of the walkway is a great place with good prices, and good attitude and food. Sorry I forgot the name of the place.

We will be going back to stay, as it is a good base for seeing the concerts in Lucca.

A lovely special birthday treat for my wife to see the Eagles live, spoilt by the Gambrinus café bandits. The staff at the hotel normally warn their guests about Gambrinus, but forgot with us. I think it stinks that a place like that can exist. I will be writing to the Pisa tourist office in Italian, and hopefully they will see the clear rip-off practice of fleecing tourists, and close them down.

Hope you value this info. Regards. Tony and Carolyn
