We stayed 3 nights at the end of a weeks visit early July 2012 which included Florence, Lucca, and of Cinque Terre. I had booked directly with the hotel (cost more than some other options) but thought that it would be more personal when requesting room preferences as this was for my partners 50th BIrthday ( nice room, view and sunny balcony etc.) the emails we exchanged promised this. Very disappointed- the room was ok, a bit tired, the view was over the car park at front of hotel and market stalls, plus the balcony did not get any sun. We asked to be moved but were told they were full - as if we had just turned up with no booking / I explained I had booked months ago and showed the emails proving what we were promised. We did eventually move room a day later - to a room on other side that looked fresher and more updated, it was next to a lift ( a bit annoying at night ) and the balcony was very narrow / it would have been a much nicer to have ended to our holiday without having to complain ( this was the only place we had cause to complain during our week). The pool was huge, the beach lovely, the gym had a good view but needs updating and breakfast good. The location is great for a visit to Pisa and getting back to airport. We did not have dinner or a drink at the hotel in the evening as it was too quiet and lacked atmosphere but there are lots of other nice places to go. If ever back in this area we would probably look for somewhere offering a bit more of an personal touch to their guests as felt like a large city hotel not a resort one.
