As two 18 year old students with not masses of money to spend we booked this hotel on flight miles but we enjoyed the hotel and trip :)
We were given a superior room which was absolutely spotless, I don't think I have ever been in a room so pristine! (I've been in some Hiltons, Holiday Inns and Marriotts that are dirtier) A big thank you to the maids! The decor is definitely unique and might put some off who are used to more typical decor of 4* hotels but we liked it. Air con was very good as well considering it was 36c outside!
In terms of facilities we used one of the terraces near our room on the first floor and the breakfast was lovely. Only slight hiccup is that the 'hot' food was cold on both days (we went at 7 on one day and at 9 on the other), I've seen other reviews complain of this and I think that could be improved upon as this is a 4*. We also chose not to eat in the restaurant as there was a cheaper place around the corner which does sit in food and take away after 7pm which was nice after long days out.
The location is in fact out the way and some have said you need a car. However we didn't have a car and used the buses which were fine, it is €3.70 for a day pass and you can go on the various lines which helped. However if travelling from airport to hotel via public transport I would suggest the Pisamover bus instead of lam red then changing to lam blu at train station to get to the hotel :) in addition to this there is not much in Pisa itself so staying here was good for just using the train station to get to other places :)
I would really recommend this hotel as a hub for travelling Tuscany and the Cinque Terre :)
