“una ottima vacanza, grazie Angela e Pio”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

July 2012
We enjoyed our stay at this wonderful hotel in 2011, this time it was even better - thankyou Angela, Pio and staff. The only complaint - we only booked for 8 nights! What a delightful base to explore a wonderful city, so many people only stay here for one or two evenings en route to other destinations but it is so easy to explore further afield using the excellent train system - the station is only 5 mins from della Spina. As for dining, Pisa has too many wonderful restaurants to mention but Osteria Bernardo certainly is our favourite, last year celebrated my 59th birthday there so yes this was my ??th
Could say so much more about Hotel Alessandro della Spina but think that to read all the past positive reviews is enough - ignore the negative ones - some people just love to complain about nothing!

What can I say about this hotel that hasn't already been said. Nothing actually but needless to say that will not stop me restating that this hotel should be your first choice if you plan to stay in Pisa. The hotel is set in a fairly quiet back atreet in Pisa only a few minutes walk from the Station and around 20 minutes walk to the Airport. The hotel is simply, but very tastefully decorated, with good size comfortable rooms that are well maintined and spotless.

What makes a good hotel a great hotel are the hosts and Angela and Pia make this a great hotel. They are not only friendly and helpful but take great delight in ensuring their guests have a very enjoyable stay and are always willing assist with directions or recommend their favourite restaurants (we visited two during our stay - Il Campano & Osteria Bernardo both of which were excellent). Angela & Pio also very kindly provided a good selection gluten free breakfast options for my daughter.

Highly recommended

I have to say that normally I am very sceptical about customer service reviews but I feel it's well worth mentioning how good the customer service was at this hotel. Every stage from checking in to checking out was excellent. The room my girlfriend and I had was brilliant, much more than I expected. We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Pisa. Fantastic hotel!

We stayed two nights, one at each end of the holiday. The hotel is very handy for the station with perhaps a 10-15 minute walk over the bridge to the tower. The area looks a little scruffy but is perfectly safe and at least we were not bothered by the annoyingly persistent leather and tat sellers who plague the centre. The rooms are a good size, clean and well furnished (0n our second stay we had a very large, light and airy room with french windows on to a balcony). The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are excellent, buffet style with a good choice including homemade cake and fresh coffee to order. Breakfasts can be taken in a small flower shaded courtyard ( a perfect setting on a hot morning- or indeed for a drink later in the day)

We stayed here for one night in June on the way home from a holiday in Tuscany.

I agree with previous reviews that the exterior of the hotel doesn't really indicate what it is like inside. It is nicely furnished and spotlessly clean.

The owners were absolutely charming and very helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions etc.

The location is incredibly convenient for the airport and the city centre is an easy and pleasant walk away (20 mins to the tower).

We selected the hotel through hotels.com because it had parking and thought this would be included in the price but it was an additional charge of 10 Euros.

Although this hotel is quite a walk from the centre of Pisa, it is very close to the station which we found handy for our trip to Lucca and the bus to the airport stops at the bottom of the street and only costs 1 euro 10 cents.

The staff were friendly and were helpful in providing information. The breakfast was very good and wi fi was free. The air conditioning was efficient and a welcome relief. Though the area was slightly scruffy it was quiet and we felt safe walking at night.

Having read previous reviews I was a little disappointed in our room, which was a bit dark. There was a very heavy shutter and as the room was overlooked by the house next door, we had to have this half closed for privacy. The bathroom was very nice.

We were surprised that there were no coffee making facilities in the room and this would be a huge improvement. An alternative would be to serve coffee in the lounge or garden. We did ask if it was possible to get a hot drink during the day but it wasn't.

We would recommend this hotel to people who wanted to stay outside the centre and close to the station and airport.

The staff were very friendly and made you feel at home. The hotel was clean and in a good location. It is a short walk from the train station and a relaxing walk to the Leaning Tower. The breakfast was free and there is a nice courtyard where you could sit and relax. The area felt safe and we were not afraid to walk around. Overall we recommend this hotel and would stay there again.
