We stayed the night in Pisa because our flight out was early the next morning from Pisa. It takes less than a day to see all the sights in Pisa, so I would overall recommend a day-trip. But if you must stay over night, this place is pretty okay for the money.
Excellent location, literally 100 meters from the Leaning Tower! You can see the Basilica from the sundeck of the hotel, which is also pretty nice. Airport and train station are just 15-20 mins away, with a bus stop right in front of the hotel.
It's a small place. Clean, but rooms and bathrooms were definitely outdated. Bring your own towels, they provide paper thin ones, but they aren't great. There's an empty mini fridge, so bring your own water.
They had pushed two beds together for the double bed and as a couple, it was very uncomfortable to sleep on. They only give two pillows which are very unfluffy.
Breakfast was nothing much, croissants, danish, yoghurt, etc. Good news- there is a McDonalds right next door!
Wi-Fi was not working while we were there, but they had a communal computer in the lobby for people to use. They lock the doors at 12.30AM so let them know if you are coming back later than that or you will be locked out.
Overall, if you only need a place to sleep for the night, this is hotel is good.
