My family and I returned to the Hotel Bristol for probably the seventh or eighth time at the beginning of August and everything was as lovely as always. The hotel is beautifully clean, rooms cleaned and towels changed daily, AC in every room, wonderful breakfast (my son managed 4-5 pastries most mornings!!) and great staff who put the finishing touches to a fantastic holiday. The hotel is within easy walking distance of beaches or you can borrow the bicycles at no charge and cycle to other beaches in Marina di Pisa only 20 minutes away. The local bus service to Pisa or Livorna and then the train onto Florence or Lucca is easy to use so a car isn't necessary.

We will definately be back soon.

I have been several times, but this was our 2nd "Family trip" to Tirrenia, Italy. We knew what we wanted, shopped around and we weren't disappointed!

First of all, this is a "Beach Town" for tourists...just know that before you get here. Don't expect the "beautiful Tuscany countryside" because you aren't going to get it...If that's what you are looking for, then Tirrenia isn't for you.

As for the hotel, this is a small, family run hotel that is very clean and with great service. We were a bit skeptical at first because we would have preferred to stay a bit closer to the beach, but our first impression and impression throughout was that the hotel staff wanted to make us feel comfortable which put our minds at ease.

We are a family of 4 (kids 7 and 3 yrs) and the apartment was perfect for us. The two kids slept in the living/dining room and my Wife and I slept comfortably in the bedroom. No issues at all with the room as the AC worked correctly in both rooms and room service did a great job daily.

The downside to this hotel is that you will have to drive to one of the beaches and pay 12-15 Euro daily (none are included with this hotel as it is with many others) for use of an umbrella and chairs. And it's not near the middle of Tirrenia for the restaurants and nightlife, but that turned out as a plus for us.

As previously mentioned, a family with younger chidren so a 15 min walk to and from dinner was actually a nice way to end a long day and get back to a nice, quiet place to sleep. What we gave up in convenience and maybe even savings, we more than got back in comfort and relaxation.

We would definitely recommend this hotel...at least I know where we will be staying in the future!

Room Tip: Our review was based on our stay in one of the 2-room apartments. For a family wth young children, this was a great choice!

Our family of 5 stayed at the Hotel Bristol in June 2011. Being a family of 5, we opted for one of the hotel’s apartments rather than two rooms in the hotel. This seemed more practical since we wanted to stay together and the apartment was equipped with a small kitchenette. The apartments are also closer to the swimming pool, although none of the apartments open directly to the pool.

Our intent was to stay at the hotel for nine nights, but reduced this to six nights based primarily on the condition of the apartment. The apartment was comprised of one bedroom, a living/dining/kitchen room and one bathroom. A small paved area in front of the apartment was provided with a plastic table and four chairs that appeared to be purchased at a flea market. Two of the four chairs were broken and everything was dirty and discolored. We tried to clean it ourselves but eventually gave up realizing it was a lost cause. A tablecloth that we purchased ourselves helped moderately. It should be noted that the one descent table and chairs located at the swimming pool was often occupied by the owner’s mother and father who live in one of the apartments.

In order to accommodate sleeping arrangements for 5 persons, two single beds were placed in the living/dining/kitchen room. The one bedroom provided sleeping quarters for the other three guests. As a result of this arrangement, there were no sofas or seating arrangement where we could sit together and play card games or just talk over soda and wine. A rectangular sofa placed in one corner of the living/dining/kitchen room was more appropriate for a household pet.

The bedroom was the only room equipped with an air conditioning unit, and it was positioned so that the cold air blew directly upon the head of the queen size bed. The remote control was removed from the apartment on the fourth day for no apparent reason other than a technician saying that the apartment needed to be balanced. It didn’t matter at that point since I was already sick from having cold air blown on my face for four nights. The last two nights were miserably hot and uncomfortable.

The bathroom was also poorly configured although it appeared to be newly remodeled.
On a positive note, the Hotel Bristol is fairly clean, the swimming pool is inviting, breakfast is simple but good, and the location is a short walk to beach.

Before implementation of the Euro currency, travelers who went to Southern European destinations assumed and expected that the overall standard would be slightly lower than their northern counterparts. This was acceptable because of the lower cost for hotels, rental cars, food, etc. However, the Euro has leveled the playing field and it’s no longer a value to travel South except for the consistent hot summer weather. For this reason, expectations are naturally higher but we were disappointed. To make matters worse, we were charged an extra night penalty for leaving early and for playing tennis even though never informed that there was a cost associated with this activity.

This hotel is small but so excellent. It is owned and operated by a wonderful family who all speak English, as does all of the staff. It is a bed & breakfast set-up with a lovely continental breakfast in a beautiful, sunny room. The rooms, while not extremely large, are en-suite, many with balconies, and there is a comfortable family room style bar on the main floor. We were caught in the Iceland volcanic ash fiasco and there was no problem at all with extending our stay. A wonderful place to stay!!

We were to stay four days here, and found the hotel excellent. It was spotlessly clean, towels changed every day, breakfast good and generally very satisfactory. After two days I had a medical problem, and we had to return home unexpectedly. The proprietor and his staff were extremely helpful, and I cannot praise them enough.
