“Received 5 Star treatment; Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Have just returned from a 3 night stay in the new year period. Hotel is very centrally located, within walking distance to the Leaning Tower and other tourist spots. It is also very close to the Train station which makes travelling to other areas very easy. The waiters & Receptionists are extremely polite and very fluent in English. They really go out of their way to accommodate their guests and always greet you with a smile. They also have great respect for their guests and are not after their money but to genuinely help them. I was extremely impressed with the way they dealt with my problem. Story below: For New Year's eve I foolishly booked dinner without checking the food offered on the set menu. When the first plate arrived it was with squids. My husband ate his and i passed on the plate. I then went to check the menu and saw that that there were plenty of items which include Sea Food. I then went to speak to the receptionist and explained my problem . He completely understood me and told me that it is not a problem. I told him that i will obviously pay them for the first item that my husband took and the glass of wine consumed. Upon checkout they did not charge us any fees for skipping on the booked dinner and for the items consumed on that night. Will surely recommend and visit again. :)

Great hotel, clean, staff very nice. the restraunt is wonderful, and the location is good too, about 15 minutes walk from the leaning tower. Getting there is a little tricky without GPS, but there is a good parking at the back of the hotel.There is a good Chinese restraunt down the street.

We booked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. Some reviews did not speak highly of this hotel however our experience was outstanding.

After a few days in Florence we moved to Pisa. A quick taxi from central station took us to the hotel. We arrived at midday and we were checked in and in our rooms within 10 minutes. The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly. They pointed us in the direction of the main attractions in Pisa. The tower was a 10 minute walk. Some comments stated that the hotel was beside a "graffiti covered underpass". We found the underpass fine, it's a walkway beside a main road, we walked through it in the evenings when we returned from the town centre without any problems.

We ate in the hotel for breakfast and dinner and really enjoyed the food and service.

The hotel staff from the front desk, to the restaurant staff made our trip very enjoyable, they made an extra effort for us which really made a difference.

I can't speak for the other comments but for what we paid this hotel was a great find and outstanding value.Pisa is a great place to use as a base for a holiday in Tuscany. We visited Lucca one day and loved it.

All in all this hotel was a great place to finish our trip to Italy, thanks to all the staff.

Room Tip: The room we were in 126 was away from the railway line, we did not hear the trains at all.

I stayed in this hotel during a course that I was attending in Pisa. The location of the hotel is a little way from the centre of Pisa but it only takes about ten minutes to walk into the centre.
One minor drawback is the fact that the hotel is near a rail track that runs into Pisa. This said there are not that many trains travelling during the night so it was not a huge issue for me.
I stayed there in two different rooms as I travelled away from Pisa for a couple of nights. Both rooms were very large and had comfortable beds. The bathrooms were functional but nothing more. The hotel is comfortable and clean and has a good buffet breakfast that is available until 10:00 in the morning. The staff are courteous but nothing more.
The hotel shuttle did pick us up and drop us off at the airport. I am not sure if this was included in the price or not.

No problems here, a good selection at breakfast, good clean room, no noise at night, we were at the back overlooking a green square, almost perfect. The only downside was there was no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, a minor inconvenience. The walk to the tower attractions took about 10 minutes and if you had the time, you could walk to the airport. Pisa is a lovely city, too much to see in one day so stay here and see it all.

Room Tip: We were at the back and it was quiet

Not sure about why other reviews are not so good. The hotel is very nice, it's 15 min walk from the tower so well located. Has secure parking which is free so very good in Pisa. It's easy to get to from the airport. The staff are fine, rooms very comfy, and breakfast was better than expected. No problems with the under pass. The road was quiet. So I would recommend as a good value choice.

It's a good hotel. It isn't located in a central position, the area is a bit busy and noisy. The positive aspect is that there is a free parking.
The room was small, but neat and tidy.
Breakfast was good and plentiful.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is overall good but I would give a lower rating. It's not a 4 stars
