We stayed one night at the AC Hotel Pisa by Marriott before catching our flight home next day. We thought a night in a 'Queen size' room, near the airport, with a good evening meal and breakfast would make a pleasant end to our holiday in Italy.
The hotel was not 'close to the airport'. It was a 15-minute taxi journey (high-speed Italian style).
As we wanted coffee after our journey, we asked where to go and were told we would have to hurry as the dining area, which also provided coffees, would be closing in 15 minutes and would not reopen for another 3 hours. The bar would not be opening until 7.15, over four hours.
We went up to our room, which was similar to an English Premier Inn, with minimal MDF-type furniture. It overlooked a carpark and the Queen-size bed was two singles pushed together.
In the evening, we decided to eat in the hotel. There was absolutely no atmosphere in the dining room and very few other diners. The meal was almost 100 euros. The endive leaves in my salad had curling brown edges - I would have thrown them in the bin at home. Both our main courses were unmemorable and the wine was disappointing. The waiter was very attentive but seemed to think the food was marvellous. Next morning, several other guests told us they had stayed there before and would always eat out as the food was so overpriced and poor quality.The breakfast was meagre, by any standards. Compared to other, more modest hotels we have stayed in, it was scandalous.
Our room was really cold during the night and the air conditioning system unresponsive. My husband turned over in bed and fell down the gap between the twins so they were not even hooked together.
I would not recommend the Pisa Marriott to anyone. I think it probably suits single business travellers who want wifi and are not bothered about the food or the sleeping arrangements. Arrive after 6pm if you want a coffee!
