“Friendly staff but in dire need of modernisation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2010

These apartments are in a suburb of Pisa which is rundown and next to a major commercial building project (expect construction noise).
The staff/owners are friendly and helpful but the rooms are very dated and noisy (you can hear everything your neighbours are doing, remember there is no such thing as a quiet Italian, especially if they are wearing high heels or dragging around one of the kitchen chairs!). You can also hear commercial air traffic although only up until about midnight. Take ear plugs if you are going to stay here.
The level of cleanliness was fairly low (bedrooms/skirting were dusty) the paintwork was cracked and dirty, the toilet cistern had no lid and so sprinkled water on you when refilling if standing nearby (i.e. to wash your hands), whilst this could be considered a cooling mist I prefer to think of it as the missing rhinestone jewel in the plastic crown of Residence Isola Verde. As an added bonus, if you are quick enough into the shower whilst the cistern is still filling you may not even need to switch it on and can reap the rewards of a cooling trickle from the toilet.
The kitchen utensils are rounded off with a selection of mismatched crockery that bears the name of another hotel?
Considering the price, condition and location of this accommodation you could do better for the same or only slightly more money (there is a 3 star hotel at the end of the same road that I regret not giving a chance.
I imagine the photos of the premises were taken some time in the twentieth century when snoods and mullets were still fashionable.
