“Charming hotel, good breakfast, clean rooms, pleasant and welcoming staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I spent a week here (attending a conference), and was very satisfied. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the staff were outstandingly friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was quite good (although I would have preferred fresh fruit, rather than the canned fruit they served). The location is great--it's an easy walk to the train station, to the river, and to most parts of the city. The bed was firm and comfortable, and the air conditioning was fine (it was very hot humid, during most of the week I was there).

We stayed at Minerva for three nights. Double room of good size, very clean and comfortable. We asked for a room with balcony, with windows facing the garden and not the street. Although it was unavailable for the first night, we were able to transfer for the rest of the stay. The staff at the reception very friendly and helpful with absolutely every question we had.


The only thing that could be improved was breakfast. There was almost only sweet food, but I guess that's the Italian way, so it was not really an issue. The coffee was nice and freshly made for us every morning, which was great!

Would definitely recommend it to everyone!

I spent five days in this hotel at the end of June. Its strong points are the location close to the city centre, the warm welcome and the friendly service. But that is pretty much it. The rooms are old and somewhat worn down, the breakfast is just average for an Italian hotel and the parking area in front of the hotel means noisy traffic early in the morning and late in the evening (not to mention the bloody scooters around the clock). I do not know if you can find anything better in Pisa for 105 euros per night, but I would not recommend this one.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the internal courtyard

Booked a double for a one night stay. The room was spacious with a dark wood writing desk. Breakfast was good. Reception staff were friendly and pleasant. Would stay again. Great location, 15/20 minute walk to leaning tower, close to train station also.

Stayed here for 2 nights easy walk to shops and only 5 mins taxi ride from station and airport. Was noisy when people were returning to rooms as large heavy doors as you would expect in an old building. Breakfast continental and ok but not as good as we had in other hotels. No tea or coffee making facility in room or hotel only available at breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful.

My wife and recently attended a conference in Pisa and stayed at this lovely little hotel. Everything was easily in walking distance including the train station (10 mins away). Breakfast is included and was a sufficient continental type breakfast to start the day. Room was clean with comfortable bed. There is no need to spend any more. Highly recommended.

The staff in the hotel are nice. The breakfast is fine. There is no lift in the hotel. Luckily, our room is on 1/F. But soundproofing needs to be improved as there are noise from the coordior. It seems that the youngsters are having parties inside the hotel.

Overall, it's a place for budget traveller. But I might find other hotel which is much nearer to the railway station next time.

Room Tip: No lift in the hotel
