If you are looking for a bit of sightseeing, beach/relaxing holiday this is a hotel for you. The hotel is on the main area of Tirrenia, right next to hustle and bustle of restaurants, shops and market stalls. There's also bus stops at the top of the street, where there are buses to Pisa every 15-20mins throughout the day.
The hotel is a bit outdated but it just gives out traditional Italian feel to it, the other guests were mostly Italian families with young children to teenagers. Hotel is quite big so I didn't feel overcrowded. Even at the pool, which is a massive Olympic sized pool, there was plenty of sun loungers always available and plenty of room for people to splash about. Also there is a private beach with more sun loungers so we didn't have to worry about getting up early and getting spaces.
Breakfast was good, plenty of food arranging from continental to some cooked breakfast (scrambled eggs & bacon, sausages). Enough to feel you up til dinner time.
Only thing about this hotel was that at weekends it can be quite loud as it's quite closer to the centre of the town and also air conditioning can be loud at night when you are trying to sleep.
Overall, it's not a luxurious hotel but it's ideal for family and a good base if you are travelling surrounding area (ie.Pisa & Florence). Also, the restaurants and gelato places in Tirrenia are quite reasonably priced compared to Pisa/Florence!
