We had been to Pisa several years before and stayed at the Royal Victoria then. We didn't really even research anywhere else....but we should have.
We had asked for a room overlooking the River Arno and, despite not being even close to full, we were given a tiny, stuffy cranny overlooking the parking area. We saw the wide open staircases, airy hallways and lovely details on the way to our cell....but certainly this was not reflected in our room.
The location is great....well within walking distance of both the Tower and the lively, urban area across the river. The breakfast was very good with a nice hot buffet included. Our only complaint was the room. We maybe should have asked to be moved, but didn't.
