“Great location, great price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Is hotel is perfectly acceptable for the price and location. If you are looking for a destination hotel, skip it. If you are looking for clean and comfortable accomidations to sleep in while you explore Pisa and the surrounding area, this hotel is great. It is only about two or three blocks from the tower and duomo.

We stayed here only for one night, as we wanted to make the most of Pisa before we flew back the next day. The location of the hotel, 5 mins walk from the leaning tower, is brilliant but this is its only good feature.

We turned up to be met by the hotel owners who were having a huge argument, this argument lasted for over 5 minutes and despite several "excuse me's" and "can we check in" they took no notice of us. When we finally managed to get their attention, the lady went out for a cigarette and the man carried on filling in some document, and we we're left waiting for another 5mins. Please do not let this man hang on to your passport, we witnessed him putting peoples passports randomly in his desk they are not in a safe location.

On entering the room, we had air con, a private bathroom and a small balcony. But the room had not been cleaned properly, we had a dead fly on the floor and clothes tags left by previous guests, which had not been noticed by the cleaner.

No breakfast is included, which is fine, but surprising considering the cost of the room.

There is a curfew also, you must be back at the hotel by 12am otherwise you will be locked out. Which is a shame as there are some lovely bars near to the hotel.

If you MUST stay at this hotel and I do not recommend it, it is a 15 min walk from the main train station. If you're carrying bags i recommend you catch a bus from outside the train station, which goes to Via Santa Maria or to the Leaning Tower and its a 5 min walk from there. To get to the airport, catch a bus from the road that runs along the river (so the river is on your right) LAM Rossa or Bus 21 goes to the airport and is only 1.50EUR each.

Room didn't have air conditioning, but did have a ceiling fan and with windows open was cool enough. No private bathroom but did have a sink in the room and the communal bathroom seemed clean enough and functional though there was a dank smell. Room was clean and comfortable.

Too many steps with heavy bags for there to be no lift. Some of the staff spoke English, which was helpful, but on arrival our receptionist spoke none and with our limited Italian we were not sure if we were missing some valuable information from him.

Close to the tower and Duomo but some distance from train / bus station, though the area was quiet and seemed safe.

For what we paid, Hotel Cecile was absolutely fine but it is very basic. The location is great, we could see the cathedral (the impressive Cathedral of Our Lady situated right next to the tower) from our window and the tower was all of 5 minutes’ walk! There is parking outside the hotel but we arrived at 7 in the morning and the space wasn’t available until noon which meant we had to pay to park on the street and then come back and move the car (although this is probably my fault for not checking in advance!).

I have to say that we spent one day and one night in Pisa and that was more than enough. Once you’ve seen the tower (which costs about 30 Euros to go into) and the cathedral, there isn’t much else to do. There are some botanical gardens around the corner from the hotel which are supposedly quite old but as much as it was nice to walk around in the sun, we weren’t all that impressed. You can do day trips from various surrounding tourist destinations and this might be a better bet than staying there.

In summary, if you’re looking for somewhere clean and basic to sleep then Hotel Cecile is adequate but don’t expect luxury!

A short bus ride from the airport E1.50. Get off at Femi and short walk down Via Romeo. The Hotel Cecile is within a 5 min walk of the Leaning Tower. Staff friendly, rooms basic but very clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay. You have to stipulate whether you want an en-suite at time of booking as not all rooms have bathrooms, and most rooms have fans but no air conditioning. We checked in at 11:00am and had to be out by the same time the next day but hotel looked after our bags for the day. There are no breakfast facilities but just up the road is a lovely little coffee bar serving coffee and pastries at student prices. Would definitely use it again for an overnight stay.

Room Tip: Front rooms face onto main st which can be a bit .

I stayed here for one night in May 2011, the room is basic but very clean and comfortable. Enough storage for a couple of people and a clean en suite bathroom with everything you need. Excellent value for money.
Really close the the Leaning Tower of Pisa - just down the road. The 2 members of staff we met were really helpful and kind.
I would recommend this hotel!

I travelled to Pisa for a 4 day break with my girlfriend for her birthday. On arrival we met the nice lady owner, who spoke good english. She gave us a map and marked where we were so we would not get lost and over the course of our stay she gave us more advice regarding train travel and bus travel. The rooms are nice and comfortable and are cleaned daily and for the price you pay, great value to. The hotel is situated about 200 metres from the tower and is a great location for all areas of Pisa.
My only negative is, that if you are a light sleeper, this is not the hotel for you. It can be very noisy at night from the cars and mopeds that constantly go past the hotel.
Overall though I would highly recommend.
