“Great Sun / Sea alternative location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Although this hotel looks aged and nothing special from the outside, inside it`s completely different. OK so a good old 30 minute makeover was required in the room to drag it into to 21st century but everything else is very good. the Olympic sized swimming pool was a little cool but very accessible, and the beach was only a matter of minutes away with plenty of lounges readily available for usage by holiday guests. Only issue was the fact the hotel is 10 miles away from Pisa and cost 35 euros from the airport! (cost 2.90 euros on bus to Pisa centre) Overall a very nice alternative to the usual sun/sea weekend breaks, especially as we went in early June when it was 30C+

I've stayed a few weeks in Tirrenia for business reasons on 3 different occasions and really enjoy staying at this Hotel. The staff is courteous and professional. The Hotel and location is great, very close to the beach and nearby restaurants. My family also came to visit and the family rooms are spacey and comfortable. Anytime I return to Tirrenia, I'm definitely staying at the GHC. Only negative...rooms don't have many outlets, so you're either charging your phone in the bathroom or a outlet on the far wall.

spend a week at the grand hotel continental for vacation. its a typical Italian hotel. I just loved it and I'll definitely return in the summer time. they have a private beach just one minute walking in front of the hotel. the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. good location in Tuscany. we did some day trips to Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Livorno and Sienna. they have a wonderful garden and a big lobby area. Thank you!

Room Tip: book a room with balcony

I stayed here for just one night on business. The communal areas are acceptable. It looks like they're trying to update the hotel but it has been left in areas. For example, the room was modern, wooden floors, great bed, very acceptable. Then you went into the bathroom. Which was so damp the ceiling was flaking off all over the floor and back of the toilet. The floor had water stains which again were from the ceiling as it had dried with white marks around it. The shower head moved with the pressure of the water, the whole room was horrible. But it was one night, I didn't complain. No full length mirror in the room. And be sure to take plug adapters. Italy has this stupid system of 3 pin European plugs, normal 2 pin plugs don't work. They do in some places but not in this hotel. The staff I found abrupt, they hung up the phone on me before I could finish my sentence. This hotel is also coach trip friendly. My room was over the restaurant so from 6.30am you heard chairs scrapping, cutlery scraping against plates. Breakfast was ok, no gluten free or lactose free options. As a Crohn's and celiac sufferer, that left me with scrambled eggs. Hopefully I'll never stay here again.

Stayed one night on in December 2013. Dinner was acceptable, breakfast was ok. Rooms were clean enough. Recommend one takes Lysol and bleach wipes just in case. The bathroom was small, kind of dingy, and the shower tight for one person only. Water drained slowly, so shower quickly. The staff was wonderful. Staff also had a great map of Pisa to help one plan their time. Olympic sized pool and Jacuzzi looked interesting. It was nice looking from the balcony to the beach. I was about a two minute walk to the beach.

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.
