“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Stayed at this hotel on recent trip to Tuscany. In total 4 nights. This is the best small hotel I have stayed at. Rooms are good size, very clean and both rooms used had air-conditioning. This is a must when you stay in Italy in July. Angela and her husband are so helpful and friendly and the next time I fly to Pisa I will definitely be booking into the Allessandro. The hotel is a short 5-10 minute drive from the airport. Close to the railway station in walking distance approximately 10 minutes stroll. Excellent breakfast. Terms bed and breakfast, no restaurant however Angela was able to recommend restaurants close by where food excellent. which were superb. Galileo and Osteria Bernardo (well worth the visit) Book this one with confidence.

We stayed for one night to take in the famous Leaning Tower. You only need a half a day to do this really, so a hotel near the station was ideal. The station is very convenient for Pisa airport also, only a 5 minute trip.

The room was fine, comfortable and relaxing with free wifi and air conditioning. As others have said the wi-fi access procedure was a bit weird, but got there with a little help from reception supplying a password (perhaps this should be given out at check-in?)

But no complaints - staff very friendly, English-speaking and professional. We had a lovely breakfast in the hotel garden - really lovely for our last morning in Italy. Many thanks :)

Less than 5 mins from the main railway station is this delightful hotel. Very friendly staff. Very nice breakfast of cereals, croissants, cakes, fresh fruit, cheese, salami, yogurts and an assortment of hot and cold beverages. Lovely little patio to enjoy breakfast too. We had a spacious triple bedded room which was very clean and comfortable. Modern, large shower room with plenty of fresh towels. Could have walked back to the station to catch the bus to the airport but the hotel offered a shuttle service @ €4.50 pp which was very convenient if a little pricey for the 5 min journey to drive 1.5 km but I don't know if the hotel set that price or the taxi company did. Either way it got us there in a jiffy right outside the departures entrance. One thing I would say was that the air conditioning unit in the bedroom would not go any lower than 19 degrees which for myself and my family was a little too warm to sleep well. But apart from that I would wholeheartedly recommend this cute hotel to all.

Room Tip: No tips just ask for what you need when booking.

This is our fourth review of this delightful hotel and the lovely Pio & Angela, read our past comments, nothing changes. Have now experienced Pisa in the bitterly cold weather in January and the hot, hot weather in July - a city to explore at any time of year - a wonderful base to explore the whole area.

My sister and I stayed here four days.
The good things
* Close to train station.
* Clean and quiet (where we were).
* Front desk was extremely helpful with train schedules, and even suggestions on which days to go (some towns 'shut down' on Sunday).
* it seemed very quick to the Tower for us, because the path was along a major shopping street, and we love to shop. We came in the back side of the Tower (I think) and avoided the bulk of vendors selling wares in the Field of Miracles area.
* The hotel was close to a great pizza place and tons of 'cheap' shopping places (i.e., questionable if those 'Made in Italy' tags can be believed)....if you like that sort of thing!
* Breakfast was overall good - fresh coffee/espresso; juices, ham, salami, cheeses, fresh hard rolls, etc. Only complaint was canned fruit - but it was better than no fruit at all.
* Mini bar had good beverages at a reasonable price, and good wine was available at the front desk.
* Taxi is about 11 euro to the airport.

The not-so-good
* In the heat of July, the a/c was not really effective, and the hotel management would turn it off while we were gone (we left it on) so we always came back to a very warm room. The device was set into the entry area, and so a wall blocked the air from fully circulating. Also, the thermostat only let us set the a/c to a certain point. I'll admit to being spoiled by my a/c at home, but I needed it a couple more degrees cool to sleep really well. Besides, if it had ever reached the set temp, it would have cycled off (I am assuming - I've seen similar machines in Italy and they cycle on and off).
* Our last night, the a/c seemed to quit altogether. Nothing but warm air blowing in the morning.

Overall, I'd say average to very good.

From the minute we arrived we felt welcomed, Angela couldn't have been friendlier and nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and a decent size, particularly the bathroom which are often very small. It had air-con and Wi-Fi which was no problem to access with a user name and passcode from reception. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with the usual selection you'd expect and there was an outside area to eat in. It is very convenient for the station, the only downside is the area looks a bit run-down but the hotel is fine. We were given a map and recommendations of where to eat and able to leave luggage after checking out. Very reasonable rates for the standard and enjoyed staying here very much.

A small and not fancy looking hotel from the outside but very nice once you enter the hotel. Nice people who runs this hotel. Room was rather traditional italian (high ceilings). Breakfast was a sparse but sufficient. 7 minutes walk from station. A good alternative to hotels which are situated nearer the leaning tower.
