“Good Hotel, maybe not a 4 star..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We stayed for 4 nights last week. We booked through a travel agent for an anniversary break. Based on previous reviews we asked for a room on the 3rd floor. The room was nice, and clean with good quality towels. The breakfast was varied , with something for everyone. As a coeliac, I was delighted to be given hot bread rolls and a basket of various gluten free foods, from crackers to cakes. If I had one complaint it would be the coffee! For Italy it was the worst coffee I tasted. [spend some money on a coffee machine] We had drinks in the evening sitting outside in the patio area. The bar was a little pricey and closed at 11pm.
I thought the staff on reception seemed pre occupied all the time, they hardly raised their heads from their computer screens.
It's a short enough walk to the tower from the hotel and seemed quite safe despite having to walk under a bridge to get there.

Room Tip: Third floor has a bit of a view of the tower.

Old fashioned, away from center of town, grime in shower, no tissue paper…available in entire hotel, views of overpass or parking lot, over priced if comparing to in town fancier hotels, no pool,
all rooms tiny, motel quality decor, no soft pillows, wifi is slow and non existent on mobile devises,
if this is four star it must be on a ten point scale, tiny shower, no tub, no hair dryer outlet in bathroom Nothing classy if that's what you want. Initially it felt icky. At least the air worked and the people were helpful within limits. I would look further. One saving grace is hotel is a few steps from an auxiliary train station i.e. making a fast and expeditious escape to Cinque Terre is quick and easy

Room Tip: In our opinion "good" is overstating it

This modern hotel is easily accessible from the autostrada (although the last 100 meters from the main road, above an underpass, are a bit tricky--just as leaving the hotel by car) and only a 15-minute walk from the Leaning Tower and Cathedral. Staff is patient, very helpful. Clean, spacious rooms, free (safe!) parking behind the hotel, away from the street. Generous breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the rear, away from the street/underpass in front.

Very nice hotel in a nice area. Short walk to the center and the tower of Pisa. Great breakfast and a very nice and relaxing restaurant for dinner. Staff was helpful and friendly. Room was suburb and most comfortable! Even though near the train tracks, never heard a thing! On site parking was a perk!

This is a very average hotel but only 10 mins walk to the Leaning Tower. The room was very spacious and bed was comfortable with lots of extra pillows available, although smelt a little of smoke but for the price it was what we expected. Staff were nice and breakfast was ok. This is not a bad option for a quick trip into Pisa.

This hotel is old and a little worn. However, it met my expectation of a safe walk to Pisa. We were off of a wonderful hotel experience in Rome, so after taking the train from Rome to Pisa it was a bit of a let down. However, for ONE night it was fine. We ate at the hotel out of convenience. We were there May 2013, but I am just catching up with my reviews.
