At first glance, this hotel looks pretty nice. The lobby is pleasant, the rooms seem fresh and modern. It's fairly far from the downtown sights and restaurants, so like me, you're probably only staying here if it's the hotel work chose for you. There is however an easy bus ride downtown (catch it across from the shopping center on the main street Via Cisanello). We couldn't find a tabbacheria to buy tickets near the hotel so we winged it the first time and then bought several in town.
The breakfast was pretty decent, love the self-serve cappuccino machine.
Now to the downside: one of us took a shower after we checked in. The tub completely choked up with water and would not go down. No shower for me! We told the front desk. When we got back 9 hours later, there was still a foot of water in the tub. The night manager kindly fixed it. Next morning, other party took a shower, all was fine. I got up an hour later and... No water. At all. Everyone at breakfast had the same problem. I tried again after breakfast and there was some intermittent rusty (I hope, vs sewage?!) water but nothing I wanted to try to bathe in. In short, I didn't get a shower till day 3, and still the water was occasionally brown. Super gross.
Smaller complaint, for being one of the more expensive hotels in Pisa in spite of being kind of inconvenient, it had a 9 euro charge for wifi in-room. Wifi free in common areas meant a very crowded, noisy lobby at all hours. I think if the fee was more reasonable (or free, as it's already not a cheap hotel at all) people would use it.
Lastly, poor design - outlet only on one side of the bed. Very annoying for two people who both need to charge their phones (which are also their alarm clocks).
Overall, C- / D+.
