“Worn but ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Stayed one night on a bus tour to Rome from Germany in December 2013. We were two buses with over one hundred tourists. Dinner was acceptable, breakfast was ok. Rooms were clean enough but the toilet had a scratch which made it look like someone just used it. That's always disturbing. Room carpet should have been changed two years ago. Pool was a non-issue since it was winter. The hotel looks like it was elegant a couple of decades ago but no longer. I would go back to the hotel based on price and not expect too much but a clean room.

We had a really nice room for the price with sea view and the reception staff was really friendly helping us getting reservations for restaurants, etc. HOWEVER do not use the hotel restaurant. The chef de service was arrogant and totally unfriendly. We had to sit at the worst table in the whole room with the service table just beside our table (so the service staff passed our table every few seconds to get or bring back the menus, cutlery or cheese for the other guest, not something you would expect in a restaurant of a four star hotel...), even if half of the restaurant was empty. Apparently all tables were reserved but most of them remained emptly until we left at after 9.30 pm.... the food was really not good, we even had stomach problems afterwards.

The hotel looks like its best days have already passed (in late 80ties) but it still has a great attractions like:

- an Olympic-sized swimming pool
- a private beach (a bit crowded though)
- good location close to the restaurants and on the beachside
- impressive breakfast

The interior is weary and needs renovation.

The overall we enjoyed our short stay as we appreciated the above mentioned attractions

Just returned from a week here.Had a great time.Hotel could do with a bit of a facelift, however, Staff helpful & friendly, Pool excellent, great to have towels provided for pool or beach use. Restaurant good, although some days the choices were a little to be questioned. All in all a great place to be based to explore the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Buses every 15mins to Pisa and then a good train service to Florence, Luca and many other towns at very reasonable prices.

We stayed here for a week, half board & couldn't have asked for more in terms of the quality/selection of food available & the service provided. The rooms could do with an update but the olympic sized swimming pool & nearby beach are ideal for relaxing. The hotel is a great base for visiting Pisa, Florence & Lucca but Tirrenia itself doesn't have a lot to offer. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

The location is lovely, right on the beach and in the center of town. The pool is huge, with lots of sun chairs and umbrellas. Breakfast was nice...you could even eat outside on the patio overlooking the ocean. The hotel, however, seems a little run down. The room was a nice size and clean, but the furnishings seemed worn. Our wing also smelled stongly of cigarette smoke. The room was quite expensive, so I found value for the money to be somewhat lacking.

After reading other people's opinions, I was really worried about this hotel and area. But we loved it. Hotel, rooms and pool area really clean. Great choice for breakfast, staff really helpful, clean towels at the pool or beach every day. No problem sleeping at night, really quiet. Tirrenia is only a small place but has some great resturants, never had a bad meal. If you want a lot of nightlife this is not the place for you. We loved it and would go back.

Room Tip: Ask for room nearest to sea, with balcony. We were few doors away from gym.
