“Bathroom smelled revolting, room was creepy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The one good thing I can say about this hotel is that they picked me up from the airport as they promised (it was a VERY late flight from Palermo, Sicily). I got to the room too exhausted for words, and was hit by the strange smelling bathroom. It smelled like a combination of up-chuck and number 2. The bed creeped me out. I was so tired that I didn't have the strength to go back downstairs and demand another room, so I just slept down the exact middle of the bed with my clothes on and my hoodie up. Didn't even shower next morning. I just bolted out of there first thing. Would NOT recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Find a different hotel.

Pros:
Very close to the train/bus/taxi station, so very easy to reach.
English and French spoken by the (friendly and helpful) staff at the reception.
You can leave your luggage if you arrive there before the check-in.
Several SKY channels in the rooms.
Wide range of food for your breakfast.
Very beautiful inside.

Cons:
Only one elevator (so it might take quite a lot time to move from one floor to another), plus not next to the stair (which might turn uncomfortable sometimes).
Not a suitable balance to weigh your luggage (which can be a problem if you are travelling with some luggage restriction).
The neighborhood does not seem to be a nice area, even though we did not have any problem (and, actually, this is not a defect of the hotel).

My wife and I spent 5 days in October in this most pleasant hotel, whereby although the room assigned to us was overdue for refurbishment , it was clean and comfortable.The location was perfect with easy access to the train station and buses, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the buffet breakfast abundant and good with choices of freshly baked croissants . The atmosphere was superb and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

As I was holidaying with my daughter we needed two single rooms that were were reasonable in cost.We were very pleased with La Pace which offered very good value for money, was very clean and the staff were very friendly too.The breakfast was excellent with a very good choice and no limit on what you could eat.An excellent location too for visits to Florence and do not forget Pucca which is an unmissable ancient town.Rail travel is really easy and cheap.

Room Tip: Nice and quiet at the back of the hotel although you will not get a view..

This is the best location in town; very close to the station and only a 20 min. walk to the leaning tower. The staff is VERY helpfuland helped us both with a very nice local place to eat and with tickets to the leaning tower.

Good and central position (near train station), with the entrance hidden in a decadent gallery.
The hotel is clean and functional, but it is not nice (poor and old furniture).
It's really difficult to park near the hotel (there's a park - 16€ / day - nearby the hotel). We parked in another part of the town (we had few bagagges - no problem for us), we walked 5 minutes.
I think it's a perfect hotel for guys or business men that look for nothing more than a clean room in a central area of Pisa.
Kind staff.

Great location, seconds from the Railway Station so very handy for onward travel, but only 20 minutes very easy stroll from the Tower. Loads of funky and fun bars and restaurants right on the doorstep, area felt relaxed and safe. Its just on the edge of the tourist area, so best of both worlds, not too noisy but everything to hand.
Our triple room was actually a double room with a small twin leading off, so nice and roomy, no extra bed squeezed into a corner. Ditto bathroom, good size with everything we needed. Mini bar, hair-dryer, free wifi.. So Far So Good.
Unfortunately the whole place had the feel of a good hotel that had seen better days. The staff on reception were delightful, The pick up at the airport was perfect and worth the 9 euros just for the ease of it all. BUT... the place is a bit scruffy. The bedlinen was good quality but worn, the bathroom was clean in the bits we used - loo, sink etc - but Dont Look Up!!. Doubt a duster had seen the top of the rail for many a year.
Breakfast experience was also a disappointment - the food was great, but there were no tables clear when we got down at just after 9, An elderly gentleman who spoke no Englsh (NOT a complaint, we should speak italian, just a statement of fact...) faffed around moving things that didn't need to be moved, while half the tables stood uncleared. In the end I cleared one myself. There was no coffee in either coffee machine, no eggs left and just a scrap of bacon. But what there was, was splendid.
The sad thing is, this hotel just missed being really good and its problems could be sorted very easily. Fire the cleaner, put someone competent in the breakfast room, splash a bit of paint around and Id be giving it an Excellent.
