Hotel Alessandro della Spina
Ranked #3 of 68 Hotels in Pisa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Alessandro Della Spina from 24th to 28th July. We were very pleased with the room we were allocated~ no. 103, The Magnolia Room. It was extremely light and airy with high ceilings, a large window and lovely patio doors leading to a very large balcony which wrapped around the room. The bathroom was spacious and well appointed.
Our hosts Angela and Pio were lovely and treated us like members of the family. The breakfast was something we looked forward to each morning and really set us up for a full day of sightseeing.
The hotel is conveniently located close to Pisa train station and is therefore an excellent choice for those wishing to visit Livorno, Lucca and Florence.
Pisa itself is a lovely city and is a lovely 25 minute walk from the hotel.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay and hope to return.

We stayed at this hotel during July 2012 and chose it based upon the positive Trip Advisor reviews. It is a simple but clean and friendly small hotel positioned conveniently close to the main station.

The decor was a little dated but very clean and the room was spacious and included everything we needed (except for a kettle but that seems to be common in Italy!) Our room rate did not include breakfast but we added it for an extra 7 euro's which was good value, it was very simple but fine for what we needed.

The location is great, very close to the main station and around a twenty minute walk from the leaning tower and main attractions. Overall a nice little hotel perfect for a short stay

Really liked this hotel tucked away in the city. Very friendly place. Very quiet. Nice B'fast severed outside. Nothing was too much bother for the couple running this hotel. You wouldn't know you where in a very busy city.

Room Tip: A nice place to stay after stomping round a busy hot city. Nice to sit outside away from the hustle...

The Hotel Alessandro Della Spina is indeed a delightful treasure. Unfortunately we only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. The owners were most helpful with directions and advice on restaurants. Our room for three was spacious with a delightful balcony overlooking the garden, a perfect place to relax with a cool beverage. The breakfast and the coffee were great. Thank you to the hosts!

We chose the hotel based on reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. This is a great hotel and we can only confirm all the previous superb reviews. The owners are friendly, helpful and extremely service-minded way beyond what can be expected. The hotel is in excellent condition. Rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast is great and can be enjoyed outside and the coffee is fantastic. The location provides a nice starting point for exploration of Pisa and all major attractions are within easy walking distance at a leisurly pace (< 25 mins).

Highly recommended!

As far as the room goes, this is a pretty standard 3 star hotel in Italy. Bed is firm and comfortable, not luxurious. Bathroom is OK, but water gets all over floor after shower. Hot water is reliable. WiFi provided. Air conditioned room with lots of noise from the street. The staff was pretty helpful, and service was good. Breakfast is a continental buffet, I like the cheese.

The train station is nearby, but is a tiring walk with luggage. The bus is a better option from the airport, as there is a stop a little closer to the hotel. Ask for directions or check an internet map. This is walking distance to P Gharibaldi, some nice restaurants, and a healthy walk to P dei Miracoli. There seems to be nothing in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.

Pisa is a city best visited in the evening imho, so getting a hotel is a good idea. There are much less tourists at the leaning tower, plus the light is better for photos. And the city has some good inexpensive food, bars, and ice cream. Pisa and Firenze is overpriced at this price point, so with that in mind, this is a decent place to land. It is more costly than I would like, but if you get a good deal, you could do much worse.

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!
