“A good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

We had a quick overnight stay at this Hotel, it has a good location because it is pretty close to the airport (and we had a really really flight) and yet 10 to 15 minutes walk of the main attractions in Pisa. The commodities were more than enough although the third bed in the room was not very comfortable, room is clean, sound isolation was good.
The staff and very helpful, professional and kind. We had an early flight and had to checkout before breakfast time, but at booking we requested a Breakfast box and they were very kind to provide us that without us asking a second time.
Next time I'm in Pisa I will most likely stay at hotel Minerva.

The interiors of this hotel are beautiful: the furniture, the pictures, the plants, and even the objects of everyday use, are very-very nice and reflects the Tuscan artistic style. The stuff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is abundant and fine. On the other hands I offer this hotel for couples or families with school-age children, because there is no elevator and the stairs are high, so small children can be strenuous to go up and down. In the city the traffic is rare, the walk on the bank of the Arno is very pleasant. 100 meter from the the hotel the Giardino Scotto is a wonderful park, there is also a playground.

This was our second stay at the Hotel Minerva - the last time was six years ago and most of the staff are sttill there which speaks to the committment that everyone has to this establishment. An intimate hotel that treats everyone like family. Great location, close to most of the things to see and do in Pisa. The breakfast has a more varied menu than many places we stayed. The hotel is clean and neat. They recommended to Gallileo Restaurant nearby which is superb..

Hotel Minerva has very friendly and helpful staff, the breakfast was great, and the room was fine. The room had clean furniture, and a good shower room. It was quiet enough at night, and I would stay there again. We paid 89 Euros for a double room with breakfast, and that was a reasonable price. The receptionist in the morning was a very good guide, and told us what was where and how long to walk etc. She pointed out the best place from which to photograph the leaning tower, and she was right. She also recommended a fabulous restaurant with a fixed price lunch- which was excellent, and very good value indeed.

There are so many hotels in Pisa so I had to search a lot on tripadvisor. I dont now what to say. Hotel is located near to the river and the center, around 25 minutes walk from tower. You can stay for two nights because you dont spend to much time in room . There is free wifi in the room what is ok and we got breakfast which was for Italy very good. Hotel is missing atmosphere, maybe need refurnishing. Next time I will seek for another one.

We booked the hotel via the Tourist Information in Pisa as we had only one day in Pisa. A great resource and would definitely use it again.
Ten minutes after booking we arrived at the hotel. We were greeted with a warm welcome . Later on that evening we asked where we could get a nice meal. He was very helpful and the restaurant was exactly what we wanted.
Good location in a quiet area, approx 15mins walk to the Leaning Tower.
The rooms are basic, the air con was great. The bathroom was a little tired, however, we didn't mind too much as we were only there a night. Breakfast was
We had a glass of Prosecco in the small garden and it was served with a bread roll and salami . A nice touch.
Breakfast was the usual basic continental style and adequate.
We paid €90 for a room. A fair price for what we got at short notice.
