“good location but ....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

If you want to be close to the leaning tower area this is the hotel. We could see the tower from our room, literally 2 minutes across the road. However it is about 25 minute walk from the railway station, we were really hot and bothered when we arrived. The room was booked for 4 people, we had one double bed, one single and a put-you-up bed which my youngest (13) slept on. Room was clean and air con worked by remote which was good. Bathroom was clean and tidy although there was some filler in the shower tiling etc. Shower was small and the door folded into it which made it tricky getting in and out. BEWARE - although we had paid for all our hotels in advance via a travel agent this hotel insisted that the extra bed had not been paid for and could not be paid via an agent in advance - charged us 30 euros for each night (luckily only stayed 2) for the extra bed. :( big time. Breakfast was very basic too, hot drinks, cereal, no fruit . Would not stay here again. There is a McDonalds across the road too!

Room Tip: you could try asking for one with a view of the tower as only some rooms face that way. beware of ex...

This hotel is in a great location, about 2 minutes from the Leaning Tower, and I could see it from my bedroom window. My room was quite small, and noisy, both from the road and from the toilet flushing and shower next door but it was not a big problem. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was a bit basic but adequate.

We were stuck in Pisa due to a train strike, so we decided to make the most of this opportunity and visit the learning tower of Pisa, as we arrived, it began to bucket down and we were tired and cold.

Hotel Roma was conveniently located, from the macdonalds/ leaning tower of Pisa, so we decided to stay over, which seemed to be the right thing to do...

Due to the fact that fellow TA users had given this hotel a rating of 18 out of 80 hotels available as well as a overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars...

€88 a night, the positives are as follows:-
The location is not bad (you probably don't really want to be in Pisa though)
Good shower - although a bit of mildew.

The negatives as follows:-
Rude doorman
Decor early 80's
No maintenance since early 80's
Dirty industrial carpet throughout the hotel.
Blind in room killed any sunlight.
Aircon noisy and didn't seem to work that well.
Breakfast was pretty bad, even though the servers were friendly and helpful - what looked like recycled corn flakes and bread in a packet, coffee was not good either.

Bottom line European standards are really bad if this is 3 star...

Hotel Roma is literally just acroos the road from the Leaning Tower so some rooms offer views of the Leaning Tower or the Duomo. We were greeted very warmly and given a map of the area with a detailed explanantion of places to go and also to avoid at night! Rooms are basic but functional. We had a problem with the air conditioning and the guy on the desk had changed to one who didn't understand much English but we managed to get it resolved without too much difficulty. It nice to have the garden, especially the fact it was nice and shaded, as it was really hot when we were there. The bus stop from Pisa Centrale Train Station and the Airport is right next to the hotel. Would definitely recommend it.

Selected hotel because of it close location to the Duomo, Leaning Tower etc and stayed 2 nights. Staff helpful in providing advice about places to visit, places to eat and places to avoid. Comfortable lounge and small outside garden.
The room was adequate with cotton sheets on firm bed and air conditioning. The room was clean, however the carpet was rather grimy as it had seen better days.
The hotel faced onto busy street so was disturbed by traffic noise when the windows were open. The continental self-service breakfast was adequate. Very convenient for the attractions of central Pisa, 2 minutes walk to the Piazza del Duomo.

I booked this hotel because I only had 1 night in Pisa and wanted to be really close to the tower. I arrived in the evening and initially thought that maybe the manager/owner was not very friendly but realised it was just that he did not speak much English. My room was fine for what I needed. It had air conditioning and a large bathroom with a great shower. The Tower is literally round the corner so after checking in, I had time to go and take photos of the Tower etc and enjoy the atmosphere around it. In the morning, I had time to have breakfast, go on my booked trip up the tower and come back for my shower before setting off for my plane. To be so close to the tower, it was an absolutely great hotel for the price.

Room Tip: No swimming pool & didn't expect one so it wasn't terrible just can't change it...
