At first I was concerned about this hotel only getting 2 stars. European hotels seem to inflate their star ratings and if this one only had 2 stars, I was worried we were about to check into a crack house. Wrong! This place is great! We planed on staying 2 nights and ended up staying for 5 nights and using it as a base to go to Pisa and Siena. Our room was huge, bright, quiet and had a nice balcony. The internet connection was free and really fast. Several people who run the front desk (they change staff every few hours) are amazingly friendly and will spend a ton of time helping you with maps, restaurants, etc. The bed is comfortable and the room is clean. Bad things: it's an older hotel, the breakfast is sub-par (but super friendly!), the TV is old and grainy, they use a cleaning solution in the bathrooms that stinks, and the lift is inconvenient (we used the stairs daily instead). You have about a 15 minute walk to the tourist sights and there are a few restaurants in the area, like La Taverna, which are authentic, friendly and local. The #14 bus runs near the hotel and it will take you to the train station in about 10 minutes. I'm not sure why this place only has 2 stars - we have been traveling in Europe for 2+ months so far and it seems more like a 4-star hotel by European standards to me!
