“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Room was clean and comfortable. Full complementary buffet breakfast was very good. But what I liked the most was that they offer early-bird breakfast for guests who leave the hotel early in the morning.

It is clean and comfortable with free wifi but it would be great if it provided a kittle amd tea/ coffee facilities in the room. The bath room is clean. The breakfast was intercontinental. The location is near the airport just on the main road to the express way between Rome and Genoa.

We stayed here one night after spending ten days in Italy. Pisa was the perfect city for us to fly to Paris.
If you need to be near the airport we recommend this hotel!! The breakfast was a feast. You can take the bus and go to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Taxis are acailable. Cudos to HG!!

Large hotel a taxi ride from the airport. Check in was quick and reception staff helpful. Our request for a room on a high floor was met.

The room itself was large and clean, if somewhat uninspiring décor. However the bed was very hard and the pillows were small and hard; bathroom was adequate with plenty of hot water.

Breakfast was extremely average with watered down fruit juice however plenty of cakes and bread with boiled eggs and not very nice bacon. We did not use any of the other facilities as it was just an over night stop. We had a room on the 5th floor which did not have any road noise (the hotel is on a busy dual carriageway.

Room Tip: Room on a high floor

nothing special about this hotel.
I stayed here only for 1 night, check in a bit late and I found the reception was not nice.
The amenities standard, the breakfast standard, the room also standard, they have a hot water, and the room is clean.
Dont expect luxury.
One thing is good, they have some thing like a bar next door which open until late at night, and have open air table too.

We stayed overnight after flying into Pisa late at night. Not too far from the airport with our taxi costing 12.65 euros. Very friendly receptionist who dealt efficiently with tired travellers. The bar staff member was very helpful as well and the drinks bill reasonable. Our room was large with a comfortable bed. The ensuite bathroom was large and everything worked. A little tired in décor in some places. Would have been nice to have had facilities to make a hot drink but this is not something that appears in the continental hotels we have used previously. All aspects of the hotel were clean and tidy.
Breakfast was self - service and included sweet and savoury as well as chicken wurztels, bacon and omelette. Plenty to choose from for all with hot drinks available as well as juices. For the price we paid we were very impressed. Remember you pay the local tourist tax which for us was two euros per person. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

This hotel turned out to be of better quality than I thought it would be. The service was good, the morning breakfast was decent and the accommodations were more than adequate.

Our distributor chose this place for my colleague and me when we attended a conference with them in Pisa. I was not sure what to expect but I was generally pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodations. The outside appearance of the hotel gave us the first clue as it was much larger and more modern in appearance than we expected. The lobby area was equally impressive as it was spacious and tastefully done. Our check in proceeded smoothly and efficiently as we were served by a very polite and helpful attendant.

The location of this establishment was a bit outside of city centre Pisa but we made the walk to the Tower area, where we met other colleagues for dinner, in about 45 minutes. That was a bit of a long trek but it is possible for the ambitious who want to save a little money. I say this because we took a taxi back which cost well over €20.

My room was done in a basic, modern décor that was nothing special but nice enough. It was adequately spacious and clean. Everything was in working order and the WiFi was functional without any major hiccups that I detected. The bed was reasonably comfortable allowing for a good night's sleep and there was no disruptive overnight noise to cause problems.

The morning breakfast was fairly good offering a few hot dishes such as eggs and meat with the standard cold items (bread, cereals, fruit, yogurt, etc.). The room on the 2nd level in which it was served seemed more like a large presentation room and as such was outsized. It allowed for plenty of seating, which was good, but it was a bit cavernous. Nonetheless, it served the purpose.

Our checkout proceeded smoothly and quickly allowing us to get on our way. The room rate was quite reasonable as my bill was €79, or about $101 USD at the exchange rate at the time. I thought this was a very fair price and a pretty good bargain.

Overall, this hotel is nice enough facility that offers good accommodations at a good price. The location is a little away from the action in Pisa but it is still within walking distance if you don't mind a 3 or 4 km trek. I would not hesitate to recommend this place for those seeking a hotel at a reasonable price.
