“'A Little Gem!'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2010

We had read the favourable reviews before travelling, and were not disappointed. A small, family run hotel, spotlessly clean and with very helpful staff. Added to this was a more than adequate continental breakfast with a pot of boiling water and English Breakfast tea - what more could you want?!!
Unfortunately the hotel no longer provides evening meals, but we were recommended Il Cavaliere Nero restaurant which was excellent.
We would certainly recommend this hotel and hope to return, but would hire a car. We travelled by bus and train which was fine, but every time we went anywhere it entailed a half hour bus ride into Pisa - by the end of the week we knew every bump in the road! Nevertheless we went to Florence, Lucca, Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi and Pietrasanta (a beautiful little town) as well as Pisa. Bus and train travel is easy and most places are very well served, so all in all an excellent holiday.

This Hotel was one of the nicest ones we have stayed for the last years. It is run by the Family in a perfect way, The cleaning service makes his job very well. Atmosphere created by the Owners and Service was warm and friendly.
The room was comfortable for us , I was delighted with all sort of towels in the bathroom.
The good location enables both enjoy the lovely beach and going sightseeing.
We have possibility to taste a Tuscany's cuisine served by the Restaurant at he Hotel.
We felt sorrow to had to leave,

The staff were very helpful and friendly. For us it was the perfect relaxing end to a busy 8 days sight seeing city sites. It makes a good base for site seeing, though we just enjoyed the lovely beach just a short walk from the front of the hotel. Free bike hire was also available on a first come first serve basis, we made good use of this to cycle to the nr by shops and explore the woodland lanes to the rear of the hotel
The restaurant is very good value for money. The food very good.
We would reccomend this hotel.

We have stayed in this hotel twice. It is a family run hotel with exceptionally pleasant helpful staff. The whole hotel is probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed in and the bedrooms while a bit small are comfortable and linen and towels changed frequently. They do meals in the evening which are good value for money and good standard.

This hotel is very clean, comfortable with helpful & willing staff. The rroms are slightly small, however contained everything necessary. The proprietor and his staff (family I think) were friendly,always willing to assist in whatever was required and picked us up at Pisa Airport. The breakfast was continental as expected but consisted of corn flakes, yoghurts, fresh fruit salami, ham, cheese, jams and a variety of cakes.
Internet access was available free in the lobby, and al in all would highly recommend.

The hotels is situated 7km outside Pisa, to get there you have to take the local bus for Tirrenia or call the hotel for their shuttle service.

About the hotel:
- Location is perfect if you want to stay near the sea with a nice beach where you can swim.
- The hotel is very clean and neat, the rooms are good and so is the breakfast.
- Staff is very friendly and helpful, they really make you feel at home.
- If you're looking for a "riviera holiday" without masses of tourists, this is the perfect place!

We regret that we stayed only one night, and we are definitely coming back!

The hotel is very clean and the staff could not be more helpful. They even offered to get us to Calais, when we were stranded if it had been neccessary. We really enjoyed our stay even though we ended up staying 9 nights instead of 4. There is no evening food during the off season but there are good restaurants in Tirrenia and also if you turn right out of the hotel about 500 yards up the road on the left. Bus stop just outside of hotel to get to Pisa. Would recommend the hotel and hope to return in the future.
