Air con not working. It's 27 degrees. Kids can't sleep. Have asked someone to have a look but no joy. Not good. Location close to train station. Price good for Pisa but considering no air con am sure we could have got somewhere without air con cheaper. Breakfast good. Staff friendly but not much use. Will not be staying here... More

We recently spent a week here using Pisa as a base for visiting the surrounding area. Being only a 10 minute walk from the station it is very convenient for both the PisaMover stop from the airport and for trains to Florence, Lucca, etc. It was a pleasant walk along the river Arno, over the bridge and through the town...

Stayed for 3nights. Staff (Rita & John )were very nice & helpful. The management clearly allow smoking in the rooms, as there was a very stale smell. The rooms are small & very basic, but very clean. A one night stopover would be ok, which is also more than enough time to see the city as it is very small.... More

Stayed at Hotel Minerva for 3 nights. Location is adjacent to everything (train station, airport, major sites). Room was functional, satisfactorily clean. Bed was very comfortable. Staff were friendly, some more than others. Breakfast very ordinary but ticked the box. All in all, a decent package for the price.

Stayed as a couple in April, really just wanted a place to put our heads down as we took trips out around Pisa and then day trips via train to Florence. In that respect, it was very good for our needs. The Hotel was easy to find and within walking distance of the train station (which we arrived at by... More

This is an old bare bones classic hotel. Everything was ok. What really shines is the location. Easy walking distance from the train station and major attractions. It is in an amazing neighborhood. We found Pisa underrated by travel books. The college vibe, the river, plus ancient surroundings made Pisa as enjoyable as other top Italian cities.

The bonus to this property is it's central location, about 6 minutes by taxi from the airport, 4 minutes from the central station, and about 15-20 minutes walk to the Tower, Baptistery, and Cathedral. Somewhat dated, and in need of a little TLC, it provides a comfortable and clean place to sleep, perfect for a city break. The breakfast is... More

We stayed one night in this hotel. It is very clean and spacious. It is an older hotel so it looks a little tired, but I don't mind this as long as it is clean. We faced the street so found the traffic a little noisy, but it was a Friday night. The breakfast was fantastic! Great assortment of food,... More
