The good points - the price. Definitely cheaper than most in Pisa and has a swimming pool and is quiet being in a rural location with great views.The staff were very helpful and friendly.
The bad points - Being in a rural location away from all facilties, i.e. restaurants.
The rooms were smallish and very basic, although the linen was clean. The air conditioning was barely adequate. The bathroom was basic, with only a tube of shower gel/shampoo all in one available. The towels were awful, being some sort of trendy modern absorbant sheet thing that was only good for one use before being totally soaked.There were no English channels on the TV despite over 200channels. The on sight restaurant was a joke. It was a family run affair and not professional, it did not open until 19:30 so by this time everyone was hungry and virtually the entire hotel sat down at the same time at 19:30, leading the one woman serving to become very stressed, over worked, unfriendly and inefficient. The service was very poor, very slow, the food was poor, tasteless and the menu limited, the only positive was the wine which was good and cheap.
Breakfast is an extra cost and is also a joke. Sold as a buffet breakfast, you only get 3 different juices which were 50% water, and 3 cereals on the buffet, the other items were served directly to your table. You were allowed 1 croissant, 1 bread roll, 1 butter, 1 jam , 2 ham slices, 2 cheese slices. The slices were wafer thin and must have taken some skill to cut that thin, the bread rolls were dry on both mornings we ate, the jam and butter were not sufficient to cover both the croissant and thr roll, you had to decide which was getting the butter and which the jam!!! You were rashioned to one hot drink per person - definitely no free top ups of tea or coffee - the tea bags were very cheap and no matter how long you left it to brew the tea did not get any better!!! Everything for this meal was the cheapest possible, which seemed a real cheek as it was not included in the room price but was an optional extra.
The grounds were inundated with midges and mosquitos for the short time I sat outside.
There is nothing to recommend this hotel apart from the friendliness of the hotel staff (restaurant staff could not be considered friendly). The only recommendation I can make is to find somewhere else to stay for your trip to Pisa.
