“Neet, but something missing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

So I was at the San Ranieri for one week. The hotel is located outside Pisa center, however the busses run frequently, and takes 10-15 min - So that is not a problem.

The hotel is very aesthetically nice, very clean lines and it really looks like at top modern hotel.

In my opinion there is a issue tho - This is not a holliday hotel. The San Ranieri is clearly more suited for conferences and work related seminars and not so much a relax hotel. The reason for this is missing facilities as swimming pool, staffed bar, and other facilities you might wish for.

Lack of Facilities as no pool etc is no problem ofcourse, as you are aware of this, however i found the unstaffed bar. (we had to run around chasing staff whenever we needed coffe, drinks and others.)

We only had one dinner at the hotel. This for two reasons; Our first experience eating at the hotel was not convincing, and there a reeeaally good and cosy restaurant 50m down the street, witch is awsome.

We stayed one night here in October after visiting Leaning Tower of Pisa. The hotel was pleasant and served its purposes well. The rooms are colourful and very different to anything else we stayed in during our tour of Italy. There was a function on during our stay which resulted in the hotel bar area feeling untidy and unrelaxing with children running around which was disappointed buy unavoidable. The breakfast was excellent - scrambled eggs were the best I have ever tasted. The location of the hotel is somewhat away from the main sites of Pisa which would mean a car is beneficial although I was not particularly charmed by Pisa so this was not an issue.

I stayed here 3 nights and though the hotel was quite nice, the location is pretty terrible. If you have a car it would be fine, but it's nowhere near the old town or the main tourist attractions. You either have to waste a lot of money on cabs, or lots of time on indirect buses or walking a less-than-scenic suburban route. The room was nice and clean, but hard to figure out the buttons for all the lights. The breakfast was the highlight. It is included with your room, and is served around 7 until 10:30. There are many hot and cold options, from eggs to cold cuts to pastries and fruit. For lunch I would go to the restaurant around the corner which is more like a commissary counter then turns into a proper restaurant at night. Prices are quite reasonable, and you can buy your bus tickets there as well.

Very modern hotel so long as you do not need to be in the city centre. The bus stop at the newsagent 100m away all buses go to city centre,13,14,22 blue LAM, eur1.10 for a single which you buy at machine at bus stop and validate on bus. Hotel food would not rate as highly as others , quite expensive. The 2 resaurants close by are both excellent, in particular the "dalla signora buona"-not a vast menu but food is excellent.
Rooms are very clean though the lighting is too fancy for it'own good!
Hotel is very clean and quiet.
There is not much of a lounge to wait in and sometimes it takes awee while to get the barmans eye.

I travel a lot and this hotel struck me for the quality of the service.

Good place for overnight stays.
Best deals are found at the hotel website, no need to look around.
Excellent customer service.
Convenient free shuttle service.
The restaurant is sophisticated and highly recommended.

The Hotel was good value for our weekend in Pisa. The room was spacious and clean.

Only a short cab ride from airport - 10 mins.

Check in - On our arrival Friday night our check in was prompt, BUT when we went to our room and unlocked the door there was another person in that room! We went down to reception to advise the receptionist and we were told that we went in the wrong room. When we challenged her about the fact the door unlocked with our key, she advised this was not so and the lady had left the door unlocked!

Finally getting to our room, the room is very modern. Unfortunately the Air Con is controlled by reception and not in your room - be nice to be told this at check in. TV is difficult to turn off - it kept turning back on, I think they have gone all the mods they could but really need to look into usability.

We had dinner on the first night in the hotel - the dinner staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent and service was excellent, i would recommend eating here. (at night)

Breakfast was good and plentiful choices. The staff however do not clean away dishes and with better management the breakfast could run a lot smoother.

We spent Saturday out for the day, arriving back at our hotel around 7 - we tried to get a drink from the bar and had to ask twice at reception for service and took about 10mins. Once again, better management could make the bar experience that much better. We took our wine to floor 2 and sat on one of the terraces, it was a lovely evening but they were not serving outside because of the possiblity of rain. Such a waste, with such a lovely outdoor area.

All up - the hotel is modern, easy to get to from the airport - a short taxi ride to central Pisa (10 mins), food is excellent. On the downside, staff/management bring this hotel down.

I would also recommend the italian restaurant on the corner as you enter the hotel - great value, great food (the hotel can be a little pricey).

Really nice, modern hotel - close to both the airport and to central Pisa. It was super clean, very quiet, and good value for money. Breakfast was excellent, but there was no pool or other leisure facilities on site which would make this hotel good for longer stays (the pool is a short drive away but we didn't visit it). We travelled with our two daughters and my mother and had two adjoining rooms.
