Good points. Breakfast, free internet, staff quite friendly, tea making facilities, good location for town, restaurants & station, outside terrace

Not to good. Wi-fi doesn't reach to rooms which are a bit outdated & staff could be a bit more welcoming

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

Hotel Bologna did the trick for our one night stay in Pisa. We booked our room on the hotel website so that the shuttle was free. The shuttle arrived quickly and we arrived to hotel without a hassle. Leaving the next morning, we realized there were too many people going to the airport that could fit in the shuttle, so we opted for a taxi. The only bad thing about this hotel it that it is on a bus route and there is street noise, but being on this main road made it easy to get a cab.

Room pros: New bathrooms, soft towels, hotel slippers, hot water/tea pot, mini frig that is quiet, modern digital safe, bed & pillows comfortable.

Location is in a safe central neighborhood and we walked a couple of miles round trip between the hotel and the historical sites. They also provided courtesy umbrellas. We enjoyed our stay - thanks!

I arrived at the hotel at 8pm ish and after a quick inspection of my room i noticed that there was no iron, I asked for one and was told that irons were not handed out for security reasons(Iron rampage?). I was told that there would be someone to Iron my clothes in the morning, (in case i cant manage myself!) I asked when they would arrive and they stated after breakfast. So I now must attend a meeting with un-ironed clothes. 4 Star hah (the rest of the hotel is below average) I will never be back!

Room Tip: Avoid, if you attend make sure to ask that no Irons are on the loose.

Valued Guest, irons cannot be handed-out because of security-reasons. If you like, you can have a look to national laws and our yearly fire-safety assessment. We are working on a solution to offer a "do-it-yourself"-area in some public area of the hotel for the hours during which laundry is closed.
But Tripadvisor should not be used to discredit and defame in a emotional way. No word about free internet, free happy-hour-tasting of Tuscan Products, Shuttle Service, location, full breakfast and so on? Have a good time. Luca Gherardi.

Very good for airport less than 10mins charge 10Euros . Breakfast looked good but they forgot to give us an alarm call so very rushed departure!!!. room was a bit basic view was of the parking bay on ground floor as we requested a disabled room maybe thats where they are but staff very nice and in the morning we realized there was a few restaurants around (we had arrived late)

Room Tip: We asked for a disabled room which was in the annex opposite the car park

Valued Guest, thanks a lot for staying in our hotel and for sharing your experience in this forum. The shuttle service could have been free, if you made your room-reservation directly with us. Sorry for the problem with the wake-up-call. Unfortunately I could not find any mistake in our IT-System, we double-checked all, but it seems to work. We will keep an eye on this. Our hotel is in the historical centre of Pisa. As usual in the city-centers, buildings are surrounded by neighbours, restaurants, other hotels. We are not promoting to offer panoramic views ( which will be obviously be better in the mountains), but great location, good service and dedication to our guest. If there is anything we can do for you in future, we will be happy to help. Best regards. Luca Gherardi

We recently had a lovely stay at the Hotel Bologna. Our room number was 003 which overlooked the sun terrace. The surrounding were quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is plentiful and varied with scrambled eggs, bacon,fresh fruit, croissants etc. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. I can honestly say we could not fault this hotel it is 5 mins in a taxi from airport and is a 2-3 minute walk to Pisa Centrale train station.

I looked for a hotel close to the Rail Station as we were coming in on Rain from Rome. I read the reviews and all looked good. The Hotel Bologna Pisa did not disappoint ! We received our room promptly upon arrival and took the small lift to the first floor. We booked a Quad Room for myself, wife and three children. The room was excellent and plenty of space.

The hotel offered breakfast and an evening snack and wine, excellent!

Location is close to shopping and food as well as a nice walk to the tower and other sites. While I wrote this a year after our visit the current Tripadvisor rating #4 in Pisa... It could well be #1

We booked the Bologna hotel after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor and finding a really cheap rate through a third party. At only $130, and just for one night, we weren't going to be too fussy! An easy walk straight from Pisa station, we arrived early to ask if we could leave luggage, but were checked in anyway, even though it was only 11.30 am it wasn't a problem.
The hotel is an easy 15 minute walk to the Leaning Tower and the area felt very safe.
Wi-fi didn't reach past the lobby, but the access codes were in the bedrooms.
The included breakfast was fine (cereals, pastries etc) but it was a bit of a flustered situation with everyone trying to get at the food to take back to their table. Definitely wasn't an easy or enjoyable breakfast, but the food itself was quite fine.
The rates seem to vary quite a lot for this hotel, we looked at booking an extra night before we had arrived and rates were listed at $280. Had I paid that for a night I would have been extremely disappointed, but at the prepaid rate we had, we were satisfied. Would recommend as somewhere convenient to stay, is also just around the corner from the Uffizi gallery which we loved visiting.

Dear Guest, thanks a lot for your nice feedback. For the following readers, I would like to clarify one of your indications: The rate of 280 (Euros, not $) are the rack-rates. Rack-rates are maximum rates per room we have to publicize by law. This rates cannot be exceeded during the year, and in very rare occasions (trade-fair, holiday) rack-rates will be applied. Standard-Rates on average are around 50% lower! Please note also that we offer best-price-policy and that shuttle service is free of charge if the (room)-reservation is made directly with us. For any further question, please feel free to contact us. Best regards. Luca Gherardi
