AC Hotel by Marriott Pisa
Ranked #26 of 68 Hotels in Pisa
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for one night while transiting through Pisa to Cinque Terre. Our flight arrived late so we wanted somewhere to stay for a night before catching our train the next morning.

This is an excellent business-like hotel with modern furnishings. The bathroom is large and new and the room itself is well-furnished with hardwood floors. The room was very clean.

The location is not that convenient, but this is reflected by the price. For our purposes of requiring a nice room to stay inn for a night, this worked well for us. We took a cab to the Leaning Tower of Pisa (approx. EUR 10) and a taxi to the airport cost around EUR 12.

The quality of food served in the restaurant was poor - too salty! There was, however, not much else open around the time we arrived (10.30pm on a Friday night).

Overall I would recommend this hotel as it represents good value and a good night's sleep. However, be aware of the locations and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be similar.

Half Decent hotel. But very minimalist, in terms of included services, less than what you would get at a Holiday Inn Express in the U.S.

Safe deposit box in lobby, not rooms ??, and could not fit my laptop in their safe deposit box. Therefore I had to leave laptop in my room unsecured, So I did not allow maids to clean or enter room for entire stay!

Small room, but not sufficient to fit large suitcase on suitcase holder and still be able to walk through the room. Had to put suitcase on floor, which completely blocked access between bed and bathroom.

Pay a lot for Internet, 9 euro/day for iPad, 18 euro/day laptop.

Breakfast buffet, not included, is not good and not recommended.

no ice on the floor, did not want front desk bringing it to my room, so skipped the ice.

Last night there got home at 11 pm. Smelled cigarette smoke in hallway, told front desk. He would not do anything about it, deferred me to morning manager. Fell asleep, woke up to horrible smoking smell INSIDE my room, that person's odor had totally permeated my room by the time I woke up, and I was nauseous and dry heaved from the smell.

Called in morning, manager said he would investigate.

Location is on strip mall like area, cab costs 17 euro at least, after tip to airport. Not close to tower of Pisa or city center. however I did not like the center of Pisa, it felt run down, and this removed location was actually better.

Room Tip: Do not recommend staying in Pisa. Would stay in Chianti region or Florence next time in Tuscany. spe...

Stayed in the AC Pisa in August 2012. Easy to get to from the airport via taxi costs 12euros. The taxi's in Pisa are very honest and always use their meters! The good points of this hotel are the breakfast was very nice, the hotel staff were helpful and friendly, free daily minibar of soft drinks, short bus ride into central pisa and beautiful rooms. The bad points were that the shower is designed as a wet room however it did not drain well and left the bathroom floorboards wet. The last bus from Pisa to the hotel is about 8pm midweek so If you are out in Pisa on a night you have to get taxis back. We visited Florence and Luca whilst in Pisa for 4 days and both are well worth a trip. Pisa can be done in one day then it is easy to get a train to other parts of Tuscany.

Definite winner in Pisa and although its not exactly city centre it is easy enough to navigate even with public transport. No hesitation in recommending this hotel. Staff were not overly friendly but definitely not rude. Breakfast was better than I expected, plentiful and varied.

Nothing much to add: very good hotel, too bad about the internet... We just went to the supermarket (2min walk), bought two Sim cards (we were two families, so it's a lot better than using roaming) for about 20Euros each. We had free calls and free internet access for a week...

Highly recommended as a long or short stay, easy to get to the center, close to the airport.

This four star hotel deserves its good ratings except for one item. 17 Euro ($25) charge for the internet. I have stayed in upper end hotels on every continent, and this is the highest charge for internet that I have ever encountered. Needless to say I just waited until I got to the free internet at my next hotel that was two stars. Now off my rant. I stayed in a two bed room for $120 Euro. The rooms are large for a European city, and the beds very comfortable. The hotel is very modern and clean and the hotel and rooms have a modern edgy style. Air conditioning is excellent, which can be a concern at even better hotels. They have a restaurant with a three course meal with wine and bottled water for 30 Euro. Very quiet except for noise from the room above. It is out of the tourist area so not congested. Staff efficient and business like and spoke English well. I would highly recommend the hotel for North American travelers.

We chose the AC Hotel cause it was really cheap and included breakfast as well as free drinks.
The room was small but very clean. The hotel is located near a main road about a 15-20min walk away from the city center. We took the bus to get there. The staff was nice but very professional and "cool" in a way that was a bit too much.
One day sightseeing in Pisa might be enough cause the city aint that big.
