“Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

The Royal victoria hotel has so much character and authenticity, and from the moment you walk in, it feels like you're stepping back in time and getting a feel for what Italy is really like. The staff are so friendly and just want to advise you on the best attractions, restaurants etc. The room was beautiful and even though, it wasn't the biggest, for the price we got it for-it was a steal! Breakfast was the best we had on our entire 13 day trip around Italy with a great selection of anything you could ever want.

Such a great experience and the best way to experience authentic Pisa!

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor have a balcony which overlooks the amazing river.

The location is good and the staff are friendly. The room is very basic, but it's okay since it was also pretty cheap. There were lots of internet problems - one day it didn't work at all, and the hotel staff didn't believe us when we told them. Once they rebooted the router and got it going the next day, it dropped out quite a lot and was fairly slow

Old hotel in centre of Pisa. Good location, very beautiful big room. One thing that we don't liked, was that information says check in time is from 12, we arrived at 2 pm and the room was not ready. At 4 we got our room... Also I booked a quiet room but there was a lot of sounds from outside. Breakfast was quite booring. But in general; nice hotel that I can recommend if you like to live in an old hotel with beautiful rooms and great location.

Very atmospheric hotel,thoroughly enjoyable. We stayed for only two days but wished it was for more. Next to the river and gives easy access to all that Pisa has to offer. Would definately go back....

Takes you back to the times of the 'Grand Tour' of Europe, before hotels became crowded and utilitarian. The rooms are huge and airy with great views - ours looked out on the Arno River right across the road. The decor ranges from the turn of the last century to the 1920s, and - lots of huge glass windows & doors with sandblasted art deco embellishments, a beautiful, light & airy effect. The hotel is fun to explore - full of odd rooms that don't seem to be used for anything - a piano/recital room, a trophy room, a library, etc. You half expect to come upon a heroine from a Jane Austen novel, playing on a pianoforte in front of a small crowd of admirers in top hats & gloves! And the rooftop garden is a true garden with real plants - quite refreshing. All very pretty & quaint. Plus the location is perfect - close to everything, and easy to find - just walk uphill towards the river! the breakfast was superior, and they had a sweetheart of a waitress serving us. Service was overall very good.
Only two downsides: 1. The Wifi was in the process of being changed from paying to free, so it was free, but they still hadn't set it up to use a single universal password. You had to get the front desk to print you out a password, which expired within 2 to 4 hours, and then you had to get another. The password printing machine never worked any time I went down to request it, so wasn't able to access the wifi at all.
2. The lift is up a flight of stairs, so not accessible to the handicapped. Very common in Italy!

Room Tip: Rooms along the north side overlook the Arno.

A lovely classic hotel located slap bang in Pisa city centre. I stayed a week in a huge room overlooking the Arno. This is a grand old lady from another era. Maybe a little tired around some of the edges but she makes up with character and beautiful charm. I was staying with my baby and whilst the lift was a wonderful help, annoyingly, you had to get up 5 steps before you could use it. So I had to leave our buggy in reception when we were in the hotel as I couldn't wheel baby upstairs in it :( A wonderful location with some great restaurants, gelaterias and cafes nearby. I would definitely return if I went back to Pisa.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the Arno if possible - but be aware that they can be noisy if you have the wi...

We chose this hotel primarily for the central location, 900 m from the Leaning Tower and only a 15 minute walk from the Central train station and it certainly did not disappoint. This hotel is full of old fashioned charm and was nice and clean, however, beware that the wi-fi seems to be rationed (we only had it for one evening of a 4 night stay) and we did have to persist to have the air conditioning switched on in the room. the continental breakfast was a really good way to start the day with a large selection to chose from.
