“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for one night and it was brilliant. Although the location of this hotel seemed a bit seedy it was in fact in an area with a few good restaurants near by, close to the station (less than 10 min walk with cases) and convenient for shopping and the tower. The staff were superb helping us with walking maps and restaurant recommendation. The room itself was clean and spacious. We had a really nice breakfast on the terrace outside. The only traffic noise we heard was during the morning rush hour.

The location of this hotel seemed a bit seedy to us.(but convenient to shopping, tower, and airport.) However, the staff was superb - helping us with walking maps and transportation to the airport. The room itself was clean and spacious, and the bathroom was fabulous by Italian standards!

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and I can say without hesitation it was brilliant in any way.
It is situated 500m to the train station, about 20min walk to the Tower going through the Centre of the Town and very close to the airport. ( cost going to the Hotel by taxi was 10 Euro, going to the Airport 7.50 Euro ) The place is clean, quite and the owners are very polite and helpful. You can see they care a lot. there are a few good restaurants near by.

This hotel is very close to the train station. It did not feel like a dodgy area. The room was fairly large, and spotlessly clean. The sound insulation in the room left a lot to be desired, so you can hear a lot of noise from the street and the hallway. We had a big gap under the door into the room, so you could hear people talking int the hallway like they were inside the room, and there was light leaking in under the door in the night. The shower cabinet was very wobbly, and it flooded the floor. Their internet connectivity was good, but they require you to give some apps permissions to link to your social media accounts. Friendly staff, and reasonably priced.

This hotel is off the beaten track, but close to the train station and airport. The staff was excellent.
The room was average in size and the bathroom was large and clean. From the location of the hotel you can take a liesurely walk to the leaning tower in less than 30 minutes. The walk take you through the shopping district including the central market. I would recommend this hotel if you plan to spend one or two nights in Pisa.

Exceptionally friendly staff, we were there for three nights and they gave us recommendations for three excellent restaurants. Located off the main road the hotel was relaxing place to stay. The centre of Pisa is easy walking distance away.

The hotel is charming. It it spotlessly clean and the owners couldn't do enough for us. Our room was quite small with a large bathroom. Shower was good and everything kept clean and shining. Our only poor mark is for the hand towels - they were more like table napkins and not at all absorbent! Hair drying was a challenge, especially with long hair! Suggest the hotel considers changing these for proper towels! Location was not bad - near to the station but a 15 min walk from the historic area. The area around the hotel was a bit run down but we did find one nice restaurant about 3-4 minutes walk away. Would certainly recommend the hotel to others for a short break in Pisa.
