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.
