“great location, friendly staff”
Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

A good location, a few minutes walk from Pisa rail station,25 minutes to the historical sites, and minutes to the main shopping streets. Trains to Florence take an hour, 3 times an hour.
This is a good value 3 star hotel, so must be judged in that context. Decor and rooms have seen better days, but are clean and spacious. Daily maid service. Nice touches were in-room satellite tv, safe, fridge and water. The breakfast buffet is recommended as a good start for site seeing, Continental plus a couple of hot choices. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Stayed April 2014, traveled with family

The location near the central train station is perfect for a stopover, if you do not plan to stay longer in this hotel. We stayed in Pisa only for a night and next morning continued our journey for Lucca. For one night this is a perfect hotel with all necessary facilities, basic, but clean, Wi-Fi is OK.
Ask for a quiet room before hands, the traffic is heavy till late night.
The hotel offered a shuttle service, we asked to send a shuttle to the airport, but a driver did not come in time. But I can't blame the hotel manager for this.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room before hands, the traffic is heavy till late night.

Upon arrival the hotel staff (Maria) greeted us warmly and gave directions to help us find attractions. She was by far the kindest person we met for hotel staff
The room was clean and sufficent. Breakfast was very good and included other foods besides pastries and carbs.

Another visit to pisa, and where else to stay, but the Hotel La Pace. Lovely old style rooms with large bathrooms, shower always hot, hair drier, and a kettle with tea, coffee, which is a bonus. Sky tv in the rooms, and comfy beds. The hotel reception are helpful and friendly. Some people might feel intimidated outside of the hotel, as people hang about the bookies, and mini market, but no trouble. the mini market is useful for drinks and snacks, the fridge in the room came in handy too. Bar very good. The train station is 5 mins across the road, as is the bus station.
Free WIFI for the daughter was great.

Room Tip: If choosing a room, the ones facing the rear get very noisey with birds roosting in the trees, early...

If you are looking for a hotel which is great value for money, that is clean & has friendly staff then you can't go wrong. Would definately stay again & have no hesitation in recommending it to fellow visitors.

Stayed here last summer, due to having a flight home, out of Pisa airport at 7:50 in the morning and this was closest to the station. When we arrived the receptionist was extremely sour, and the only thing he said was "Passport!". I don't really need a lot of cosying up, but I do expect common civility.

When we got to the room there was hair everywhere. When traveling in Italy I have come to expect some amount of hair in hotel rooms, but this was just unacceptable. It was literally clinging to every surface and piled up in the corners. We started out by taking some paper towels and removed hair from the bedding. We counted over 40 hairs on top of the bedding alone. After that we just gave up and took some of the towels towels and put them on the ground, so that the hair lying in piles wouldn't stick to our socks when walking around.

I have a hard time figuring out how so much hair of different length and colour can accumulate, but I can only presume that the rooms at La Pace are only vacuumed once or twice a year.

After taking a trip round the town we went back to the hotel to get some sleep. When we removed the bedding we found two grape pips between it and the sheets. At that point we figured it was more or less par for the course, and removed them and tried not to think about it as we got some sleep.

If it wasn't for the extremely poor job they made cleaning this would be a mediocre and somewhat run-down, but not at all bad hotel. It's in a bit of a dodgy neighbourhood, but that's true for most train station areas in Europe, and the rooms are okay. But between the extreme amount of hair and the grape pips in the bed, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

It’s a very pleasant hotel. My husband and I have stayed there twice during our journey on the way to Florence and back. Clean,comfortable and quiet rooms. Great location - very close to the train station. The airport also can be reached in 15-20 minutes by feet . Very friendly staff! All of them speak English, quickly execute requests and give good advice about the town. Special thanks to Maria! We recommend you this hotel. Indeed, this is a good place.
