“Great Base to explore region”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Just returned from a week here.Had a great time.Hotel could do with a bit of a facelift, however, Staff helpful & friendly, Pool excellent, great to have towels provided for pool or beach use. Restaurant good, although some days the choices were a little to be questioned. All in all a great place to be based to explore the surrounding areas of Tuscany, Buses every 15mins to Pisa and then a good train service to Florence, Luca and many other towns at very reasonable prices.

We stayed here for a week, half board & couldn't have asked for more in terms of the quality/selection of food available & the service provided. The rooms could do with an update but the olympic sized swimming pool & nearby beach are ideal for relaxing. The hotel is a great base for visiting Pisa, Florence & Lucca but Tirrenia itself doesn't have a lot to offer. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

The location is lovely, right on the beach and in the center of town. The pool is huge, with lots of sun chairs and umbrellas. Breakfast was nice...you could even eat outside on the patio overlooking the ocean. The hotel, however, seems a little run down. The room was a nice size and clean, but the furnishings seemed worn. Our wing also smelled stongly of cigarette smoke. The room was quite expensive, so I found value for the money to be somewhat lacking.

After reading other people's opinions, I was really worried about this hotel and area. But we loved it. Hotel, rooms and pool area really clean. Great choice for breakfast, staff really helpful, clean towels at the pool or beach every day. No problem sleeping at night, really quiet. Tirrenia is only a small place but has some great resturants, never had a bad meal. If you want a lot of nightlife this is not the place for you. We loved it and would go back.

Room Tip: Ask for room nearest to sea, with balcony. We were few doors away from gym.

We selected this hotel based on reviews. The hotel refers to itself as a resort hotel and that is true in that it is on the ocean and is set up similar to other resort hotels with activities for guests. You cannot compare this hotel to an American style resort hotel. Aside from being on the ocean, the location was questionable. Poor parking. If you can't parallel park in European sized spaces you may never find a spot. The other side of the street in front of the hotel is lined, day and night, with vendors selling junk. The rooms are relatively small and well worn. The swimming pool is gigantic. I've never seen one so large at a hotel. Breakfast was great. It is out on an elevated terrace with a view of the ocean. The variety and quality of the offerings on the buffet was very good. Since this was a business trip I didn't get to experience all that the hotel had to offer.

I love this place and can't wait to return. My family had a great time at the beach and there are many good places to eat within walking distance. The rooms are a nice size and clean. The pools are really clean and huge. I love that they had a playground for kids and some play toys at the beach as well. The gym could use a little work.

Hotel is in a great area, hotel staff mostly friendly as long as you don't ask them to go out of their way. Lost my laundry, tried to explain to staff who just weren't interested. No follow up,on what happened to lost laundry, basically did not care. I have stayed at this hotel several times for business and they have been ok. Suppose it depends own who is on duty at the time than again its quite common to lose things in Italy and their probably use to it! Rooms are nice but you can here people talking on balconies all night which sound like their in your room which can be annoying
