“Vintage charm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We were not going with high expectations, but it was a great hotel. Brilliant location to walk to restaurants and bars. The beach was very crowded, but it was August! and we used the hotel pool, which was very clean and quiet. We wanted to use the hotel as a base for exploring the area, Siena, Firenze, Pisa are all within day trip distance...Very relaxing.

Rooms were very clean, balcony looked a little risky, and if you have small children I would keep them off it as would be very tempting to use for climbing! Shutters were amazing, perfect if you want a lie in as room was totally dark, and toilet flush should be on the antiques roadshow but worked really well. Shower was powerful and hot, bath had lost a lot of its enamel but all part of the vintage charm.

Breakfast was ok, nothing too special but coffee, tinned fruit, yoghurt, scrambled eggs, ham, cheese and cakes..etc

Lady on reception, very helpful - thank you.

We would recommend the hotel, as great base free parking and enabled us to explore and relax.

We booked into this hotel understanding that it is a 4* establishment with a private beach.
The hotel would struggle to get 3* as it is very very shabby. Our room had peeling paint on the ceiling, wet patches on the walls, moldy grouting on the tiles and rusty taps. There were 0 toiletries available and no coffee making facilities. The breakfast was quite poor and the private beach is actually 10 min walk and a cost for a day is 16 Euro so one may as well use any other private beach available and there are plenty.
On the plus side the receptionists were helpful, the rooms are large and the hotel is well located for the beaches, buses to Pisa and Tirrenia centre. The pool area is also nice.

We went to Pisa and booked this hotel along with the flight through British Airways.
What a disappointment. The room we were offered stank of cigarette smoke with a generous covering of air freshener. There was an ashtray on the side and the shutters rolled up to a tiny balcony overlooking the concrete tip. Went to complain and were given a second room. This was dirty, the walls had damp patches, the bathroom was filthy, the phone was broken in half and there was a further view of the concrete tip but with a slightly larger balcony. We phoned BA to complain and they were utterly brilliant, finding us a good hotel in Pisa. However, it was late and we had to spend a night in this hole. Next morning we discovered that the shower/bath did not drain away, it trickled away so we were standing in our and others filthy water.
Avoid.

Nice clean hotel staff friendly and do speak English,Stayed here this July 14 found hotel very clean and tidy,breakfast was typical continental very easy to find something to eat. Only seem to do breakfast as part of your stay but evening meal is there if you wish to reserve a table with reception.
Hotel could do with updating its decor very much stuck in 70s era... but its very quiet and off main road area plenty of places to eat within 5-10 min walk must like fish and pizza seems too be most menus out there nice Chinese at top of road,beaches mostly private and cost 16 euros for two beds and parasol. Beaches are set well away from road so there's no walking along beach after dinner. they sandy and clean with changing rooms too at a cost.

I did find eating out to be expensive in all places in Italy. though that's the euro!!!

I would stay again if i went there.

Really good if you want to see the locals and good location if you ren a car. We wanted culture and beach so this was ideal location. The beach was only 10 min walk, although the private beaches cost money and the free beach is over crouded. Its only 20 min drive to pisa and 30 min drive to lucca. Definitely recommend visiting lucca. Hotel itself was clean with a good breakfastbut old and warn down, needed updating and facilitties were poor. Swimming pool is small and balconey is not nice.

As previously mentioned this is a step back in time, but it worked for us.
First impression is of concern but I must say that the cleanliness of bed and bath linen is spotless, the Front desk service is extremely pleasant and both these factors more than compensate for the age of bedroom furniture and fittings.Air Conditioning is excellent.
Sea view Rooms with large Balcony are a pleasant bonus when you sit for an early evening aperitif.
Be aware that there is a Fun Fair in the evenings on one side and the noise prevents from sleeping with the window open.
Room safe is extra € 20 fully refundable, use of the Beach is €16 per couple for deck chairs and umbrella, otherwise use of Hotel Pool but remember to bring your own towel.
If the breakfast is anything to go by then I would be concerned for the Restaurant, we chose to eat at several of the small eateries located within a 15 minute walk from the hotel and each was good food at a fair price.
Our first visit to this region and I must say it was a good trip, the Beach is fantastic but be prepared to pay to use, there are one or two public locations but these are very crowded.
Great trip, thank you
