Reviewed November 2, 2012

We honestly dont know what all the people are moaning at... this is a good 3 star tourist hotel right next to leaning tower of Pisa... Check in was efficient, breakfast was lovely and rooms ok if a little dated... but what do you expect for the price you pay?

Excellent location (right next to Tower Square)

Small rooms with size limited facilities (shower extremely small).

Needs large scale maintenance done. (A/c not working = stuffy room)

Breakfast very simple and unappetising.

Can not really recommend except for location.

Despite it being right next to the Tower the hotel was awful. Small dark musty rooms with only 2 of the 4 halogen lights working. Lots of Mosquitos in the room. The breakfast was very basic but the staff didn't even check to keep the juice or milk jugs filled. Getting another cup of coffee seemed a chore for them.

Room Tip: There are plenty of other hotels close by.

Small.
Noisy.
Hopeless staff.
Rooms in poor condition.
No lift.
Air-conditioning wasn't working in the first room we were given.
Definitely doesn't rate three star, gives the impression its intended for backackers who will only stay one night.

On the plus side, its only a stone's throw away from the Cathedral and the Tower.

Room Tip: Don't visit this hotel at all, unless you are only staying one night and don't intend to sle...

I stayed in this hotel for just one night and the staff was really kind with me, the hotel is located in the entrance from the historical center in Pisa with bars, restaurants and many atractions near by but the room was really noisy and not clean at all with 2 burned bed lights. I could hear a sound from something like a kitchen all the night. The room is really small and I could not even place the luggage.

The hotel is perfectly located. Within the minute you are standing face to face with the leaning tower and masses of tourist and salesmen. Before entering the room you need to be prepared. Very small less than 15 m2. Entering the room you almost trample on the bed. Room does not have any curtains! Bathroom is o.k. Though it takes quite a long time for warm water and if it's there it is difficult to get the wright temperature gets cold quickly guess that happens if anybody else is using the shower. The lonely planet guide writes about this place and mentions a nice roof terrace with views on the dome. Well don't be fooled you only see a piece of the rooftop the rest is the town wall. Worth mentioning the hotel is wright above McDonalds witch closes at 23:00 hours. And don't forget to bring ear plugs the room is noisy in early morning when the market men begin to build up their stalls.
