“good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

I was at the hotel for one night and it was absolutely fine. I had booked a single room and it was fairly small and tucked into a building behind the main building, next to car park. Had I been staying for longer this might have been disappointing. It's about 10 minutes walk from the railway station. The staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was OK but very busy so it wasn't a very relaxed experience.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights and it was ok.
The service is very good, the staff speaks perfect English (not so common in Italy).
The room was quite small and simple but clean and cosy. The hotel itself is old and could need some renovation.
Although we booked a double room there was only one device allowed to use the hotel wifi per room and that was quite inconvenient, since we both had smartphones and tablets.
We liked the breakfast, the choice was fresh and tasty. Everything worth seeing is in a walking distance.
I do recommend this hotel for couples for short stays.

The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the main train station and 15-20 mins from the Leaning Tower. All things I wanted to see were easily walkable. It is just to the east of the main shopping street in Pisa and has small restaurants dotted around the side streets adjacent. Hotel staff are friendly and the room was simple but clean and tidy. The breakfast was included and was fantastic. All up, a good experience and I would definitely use the hotel again.

...and one night is really all you need in Pisa. To be honest, even that's pushing it.

Despite checking in at the normal time, we still managed to have possibly the worst room in place (Italy seems to have a problem with people using discount websites, so it seems you consistently end up with a "courtyard room", inevitably facing a wall, ensuring it is small and dark). Nonetheless, it was clean, pleasant, and functional. It had a stand-in shower, which after days of baths, was appreciated! We actually woke up in the morning being cold, so I can't fault the quality of the air-conditioning either! :) Staff were cordial and prompt, if somewhat indifferent. In the morning, the hotel provided handouts with overviews of news in UK, US, and France: being a Brit living in the US, I really appreciated this! Location was great: about 10 minutes' walk from the train station, and 15 minutes from the Tower of Pisa.

Breakfast was absolutely mediocre at best. Self-serve from the diluted orange juice (cordial) to your tea and coffee. Fruit was fresh; not sure about the baked goods (if they weren't stale, they were overcooked). However, it was edible, if you're okay having your cereal with warm milk (c'mon, you might like it...though probably not, if I'm honest). There wasn't much seating, but we found a place quickly (unlike some others who arrived later than us), so personally can't complain.

Wi-fi was free and functional but limited to two devices. (I increasingly have a problem with hotels not providing free wi-fi to as many devices as I wish. Seriously, hotels: I'm easily impressed, as long as I have a glass of wine and wi-fi: good breakfast is optional...)

We stayed over for one night before heading to a Villa in Southern Italy. We were two families, one with a teenager and two smaller ones and the other with a young daughter and twin babies. The teenager got her own room and we were given a family room which had two single beds in an L shaped extension to the room all at a regular hotel room rate (for this class). We usually end up paying for adjoining rooms. The layout while very cosy gave the feeling that kids were in a separate room (although visible from the bed). The staff were extremely helpful and while it felt informal / family run the room was well equipped. Location was great, a quiet back street - a healthy walk to the tower and the main attractions and surrounded by too many eating options to mention. Wifi worked well and bed and shower. The rooms may have felt a little small for a long stay but for a short weekend break - perfect. I should also add that we had considerable dialogue about room options with such a complex group ahead of arrival and the team were extremely helpful even pointing out that the suite while more expensive gave us no real advantage in terms of space. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate but we did not eat lunch or dinner there.

Room Tip: If you have small kids then opt for a family room.

Although this hotel is located very conveniently for the sights and the airport, we were very disappointed. Our room (described by the front desk as 'very nice') was depressing: tired with little natural light. We didn't find the staff very sincere either. Worst of all was the breakfast buffet. We had to queue for some time to get into the buffet as there wasn't enough seating for everyone. Eventually, we were offered trays to get our food and take it out onto the terrace instead - this entailed carrying our breakfast through the front lobby, via a car park and up a flight of stairs to a wasp infested terrace! However, given that the food was barely warm and the bread stale, we didn't hang around too long to eat it anyway. Not impressed!

We stayed at this hotel for one night at the end of our break in Italy. The tripadvsor reviews were spot on. It is in a very good location, so near to shops and restaurants and a 20 minute walk from the leaning tower. The hotel itself was really nice inside and spotlessly clean. Our three rooms were in an annex at the rear but all really nice and a decent size. We looked over over the raised patio area which was nice for enjoying a cool drink on the evening. Breakfast was really good. Fresh fruit, cereals, toast and a good selection of hot food.
We only stayed in Pisa as that is where we were flying home from, however, we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the city is itself. Lots of lovely old buildings and lots of places to eat (including our favourite restaurant from our few days in Rome, Florence and Pisa).
If others find themselves flying out of Pisa after a few days in Florence, I strongly recommend travelling the day before your flight, spending the night in this lovely hotel, and visiting the leaning tower before your flight home.

Room Tip: Our standard rooms in the annex were really good. Good size and at least had a view of the patio whi...
