This is a lovely hotel, a great alternative to staying in the overpriced places in the city centre. It is not far from the airport - the hotel offer a shuttles service to the airport and railway station - and a little out of the centre, but this was fine for us. It actually was nice to come back here after a day of exploring and relax in the chilled out surroundings this hotel provides.
It is very modern - all glass and bright lights, the rooms are along dark corridors with paintings all along the walls and doors. Our room was large with a huge floor to ceiling glass window, very comfortable bed and sofa bed for our son. It was all white, chrome and high tech. The bathroom was also very large with a huge shower and ultra-modern appliances.
We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel. Dinner was good, but the restaurant is all white and the lights made the atmosphere a little sterile. Breakfast was a different matter though, with the sun streaming through and all the bright surfaces it looked great. They had a lovely dinner menu and a reasonable choice at breakfast.
All staff were excellent - from check-in to the waiters, everyone was exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to help.
They have a garden with recliners, cabanas and a bar - a fabulous place to get a drink and chill out after a day of pounding the pavements of Pisa.
There is a bus stop a little way from the hotel, we took a bus from here into the city which cost 1 Euro 20 each way. We got off at the railway station and walked through the city to the Leaning Tower - a very nice 30 minute walk.
The shuttle service offered by the hotel costs 10 Euros per group and will take you either to the airport or railway station.
We loved this hotel, it is comfortable, modern, clean and a great alternative to staying in the centre but you are still able to easily see everything. Would highly recommend.
