Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights on a business trip with a group. The room was booked by our local counterparts and we got substantial discount from the rack rate.
The hotel is conveniently located just 20 minutes drive from Pisa Airport. It looked a bit outdated on outside. The rooms were not small but the furniture and equipment reminded of 80ies. It was clean and quiet. There was just one socket with a 3 socket extension. Two of these were taken by TV and fridge, so you had to choose one to stop if you want to charge both computer and cell phone.
Internet was available by purchasing prepaid cards from reception. A 12 euro card provided 24 hours access with only time logged counting. This sufficed for 3 days after work private e-mails and some surfing, but would be pricey for in room working.
Breakfast was typical for Italian hotels with nice croissants, sweets and meats, but lacking vegetables and natural juices. Coffee was OK as almost anywhere in Italy.
We did not eat in the hotel restaurant and instead visited numerous small restaurants around. I would specially recommend “Lo Qualo” for fresh fish and seafood at reasonable prices. The Piropo pizzeria is also an option for pizzas and pasta on a budget.
