My wife and I spent a week at this beautiful hotel on the promenade. It is a stunning building outside and inside, built in the early 1920s, yet typically of Italian hotels, has a Baroque feel to it. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast and dinner restaurants stunning. You can eat each evening in the garden restaurant if you wish or choose from myriad eating places on the prom.
There is a lovely swimming pool and small bar/café outside if you don't want to visit the beach where the hotel has a special deal with one of the private beaches.
We made use of the taxi transfer from Pisa airport which the hotel organises and adds to your bill. You can hire bikes from the hotel to explore the prom that runs for miles.
Overall, it was an extremely positive experience and we would definitely go back. However, there were one or two gripes. We thought the room prices were quite high compared with other Best Western hotels we have stayed in in southern Europe. Also, the bathroom fittings were not worthy of a four star rating. The shower screen was very cheap and the tap and shower fittings were coming away from the wall, which the cleaning staff should have noticed and informed the management.
Despite this, we really enjoyed our stay
