We stayed here only for one night, as we wanted to make the most of Pisa before we flew back the next day. The location of the hotel, 5 mins walk from the leaning tower, is brilliant but this is its only good feature.
We turned up to be met by the hotel owners who were having a huge argument, this argument lasted for over 5 minutes and despite several "excuse me's" and "can we check in" they took no notice of us. When we finally managed to get their attention, the lady went out for a cigarette and the man carried on filling in some document, and we we're left waiting for another 5mins. Please do not let this man hang on to your passport, we witnessed him putting peoples passports randomly in his desk they are not in a safe location.
On entering the room, we had air con, a private bathroom and a small balcony. But the room had not been cleaned properly, we had a dead fly on the floor and clothes tags left by previous guests, which had not been noticed by the cleaner.
No breakfast is included, which is fine, but surprising considering the cost of the room.
There is a curfew also, you must be back at the hotel by 12am otherwise you will be locked out. Which is a shame as there are some lovely bars near to the hotel.
If you MUST stay at this hotel and I do not recommend it, it is a 15 min walk from the main train station. If you're carrying bags i recommend you catch a bus from outside the train station, which goes to Via Santa Maria or to the Leaning Tower and its a 5 min walk from there. To get to the airport, catch a bus from the road that runs along the river (so the river is on your right) LAM Rossa or Bus 21 goes to the airport and is only 1.50EUR each.
