We stayed here for just 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean, a good size, modern and had most of the amenities you'd expect (except for no shower in our room, only bath with shower attachment). I think all rooms also have balconies - ours was ok, but not at all private and it overlooked the main road (and there were trees blocking our view of the tower unfortunately) - only minor gripes though.
We arrived lateish on the first night, so we just ate at the hotel. We were really pleasantly surprised by the whole evening. The setting was lovely - candlelit tables round the pool and ambient music. The menu was v reasonable and all the food we had was v good - tasty and interesting. Wine was reasonably priced and there was a good selection. Also, the service was professional, but friendly. We also went for a couple of drinks in the bar which was quite nice.
Breakfast was pretty good - bit of free for all, but there was a good choice of cold stuff and a few hot things.
The location is good - approx. 15 mins walk to the centre of Pisa and the sights. It was a bit hairy crossing the road and not the prettiest walk, but fine. We walked back one night quite late and saw a few 'ladies of the night' near the hotel, but it didn't bother us. It's also only 10 mins drive from the airport.
The pool was lovely and such a bonus as it was really hot and humid whilst we were there - perfect after a day's sightseeing!
I'd definitely recommend this hotel as I think it is good value given the facilities. The pool made such a difference for us and the restaurant is definitely worth recommending.
