“Great place to stay”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is a small family run hotel, close to Pisa train station and the airport. It was clean and comfortable, with friendly and helpful staff. Our room was better than it looked in the photos on the net. Breakfast was very good and we were able to leave our bags during the day. It is about a 15-20 min walk to the main tourist attraction in Pisa, Piazza dei Miracoli. Would happily stay again.

Had the pleasure of staying here at the beginning of September and from the moment we walked in (only 5 min walk from the train station!) we knew we made the right decision. Our room was very large, quiet and clean. Breakfast was fantastic with a wide array of choices and excellent coffee. The hotel is about a 20min walk to the Leaning Tower and the hotel staff provided excellent directions and a map. The hotel reception is open 24 hours which was also a nice change from other hotels we stayed in while in Italy. Excellent value for money and would definitely stay here again.

Excellent accommodation in Pisa. Beautiful large rooms, the whole hotel is extremely clean and neat, the owners and staff all excellent and extremely welcoming and friendly. Nice breakfast with good coffee to set you up for the day. Fast, free wifi. A lovely place to stay.

My wife and I shared a triple room with our adult daughter during September 2012. The room size was more than adequate for three people and was exceptionally clean. Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast, served in the garden was more than adequate.

As others have reported the hotel is situated only a few minutes from the station. It's about a twenty minute easy stroll to the Leaning Tower and a range of restaurants. There are restaurants a lot closer to the hotel although we did not use them as we preferred the stroll pre and post dinner.

We used this hotel as a launch point for a day in Florence (an easy 50 minute train ride) and to travel the the Cinque Terra. The hotel is many tens of euros cheaper than Florence hotels and I would highly recommend it.

Really quite good hotel, rooms were quite grand and spotlessly clean. Located in a 'backstreet' area which isn't very exciting, but really close to the station, 15 mins walk from the airport (!) and about 10/15 mins walk to the centre of town. All in all a good spot. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that.

My husband and I stayed here for a 3 day weekend getaway and we were pleasantly surprised!

Easy to find a taxi at the airport and within cheap distance. Also very close to the train station. Which is great because Pisa is not a city to be busy in for more than one day. So an easy trip to Florence, Sienna or Lucca is just a short walk away! It is also a lovely stroll through busy parts of the city to reach leaning tower.

The breakfast was just enough to get the day started and the staff were so friendly. They really are helpful and make you feel at home. They helped with a reservation at a restaurant (which they ended up at at the same time a us, so try are definitely giving good recommendations!) an helped with arranging a taxi to the airport. Also, they offered a free tour each day and we took a tour one of the day and it was really great! The tour guide even showed us afterwards a great place to eat!

The rooms and hotel itself is very clean and well taken care of. The only downfall was the bed was not very comfortable, but nothingtoo bad.

In general this hotel really is a jewel and highly recommended for a weekend getaway to Tuscany!

Thanks to te whole hotel staff for a great experience and making out Italian trip memorable!

We stayed 2 nights en route from Giglio to London. Beautifully appointed oasis within minutes' walk of station, buses and high street. Excellent value for money and you could not ask for a friendlier welcome (very much appreciated after a rather taciturn hospitality in Giglio). Highly recommended. Many thanks from Sean and Angela

Room Tip: Room 103. Large, balcony, very comfortable
