I've stayed one night in this pension (they don't call themselves a hotel which is correct of them). It's really only 1 min from the Pending Tower. It's quiet in the street, though. The room was a double room (I booked it, because I hoped I'd have my own bathroom, but it only had a lavatory, no toilet or shower... More

Yes okay for a short stay . Clean and comfortable. Very well situated. Noticed that a number of guests were Italians, so there is a feeling of being among friends. Like many other hotels in the oldest part of towns, be prepared to climb a number of stairs if you are staying on the top floor.

The hotel is in a great location right next to the tower and the street with all of the restaurants. However you have to walk down a tiny side street to get there. The hotel was very clean and the wifi worked well. The vending machines in the reception were very convenient and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly... More

It is really a convenient place to stay in Pisa. It is located in the center of the city and in the meantime the rooms are really clean and comfortable. The main weakness points are the noise around in the night and lack of air conditioner.

The hotel is literally one block from the tower of Pisa. Tons of shops and restaurants nearby. It is a trek from the train station so if you have luggage I would recommend figuring out the bus schedule (Dragging suitcases that far over cobblestones was an experience I don't need again). Our room was decorated petty cool and I enjoyed... More

This is a quaint hotel in a great location. The tower is just a minute walk down the street. All of the restaurants are even closer if you take the alley right by the Hotel. The owner was wonderful. The beds are a little hard but very typical for Europe. We would definitely stay here again.

We wanted somewhere close to the tower for a quick stop over in Pisa (you really only need one day), and this place fitted the bill perfectly. We booked a double room with private bathroom - the room was simple but clean and relatively spacious. The staff were friendly and efficient, although relatively hands off. The location was perfect -... More

We had a ground floor family suite (one twin bedded room, one double and an en-suite bathroom) in this fairly basic hotel. Everything was very clean, there was free wifim the breakfast room (available 24 hours) had vending machines with great coffee plus it was a couple of minutes stroll to the Leaning Tower. Plenty of good places to eat... More

This was a reasonably priced hotel very close to the Leaning Tower and close to shops and bars. It had good free wi-fi . The rooms were clean and spacious but the bed was 2 single beds pushed together which was very uncomfortable.

Within a couple of minutes walk of the tower, and a selection of good restaurants and cafe's. The location is the main pull for this place, but the room was perfectly comfortable. We had a twin room with a bathroom that appeared newly renovated. Wifi was good as well. Would definitely stay here again, but Pisa is really more of... More
