10 min walk from main bus and train stations and same to the Leaning Tower and other main sights. Overlooks the river, which is always low not like when in 1966 the town flooded which disastrous results ! A really old original hotel from the hey days of travel. If you have trouble sleeping you need a rear room as the one way traffic passes the hotel . Very helpful staff. Breakfast extra at 5 euros and plenty of it and well worth it as you'd pay that outside in the cafes for a cake and coffee! Guide book say not much worth seeing other than the Tower but we spent 2 days and found lovely restaurants away from the 'tat' ones around the Tower area and we found the streets lines with lovely shops etc. If flying in take the RED bus line directly outside the airport to the city centre (one and half km) 1.50 Euro, tickets last for 75 mins. Change at the Train station to the Green line bus, using the same ticket. This bus takes 3 mins and stops outside the hotel. Or you could walk straight down the main street outside the train station to the hotel. Took us with suitcases 15 minutes. If your flush, take a taxi from the airport !! But hey, the fun when travelling is take the buses. Hotel didn't have have tea/coffee facilities.

Our second time in this hotel! We remembered this hotel and nice but that first room was quite small, but we liked the location and felt the size would not be an issue. We requested a room for 3 adults and were pleasantly surprised to get a suite. It was very comfortable with tv's in both rooms (which we never used - much too busy!) This time, both rooms had plenty of space and we were really happy!
The breakfast buffet is terrific! Plenty of food and plenty of choice. The coffee machine was strange though and did not give consistent good coffee, well, it really didn't give good coffee at all. But it was ok...There were no complaints about the food though!
Train station is almost just across the street so the whole of Tuscany is at this hotel's doorstep. Wonderful location for this. Also close to the main shopping street and about a 15 minutes walk to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Duomo.
We never tried the bar though, we meant to, but were always worn out when we returned so I cannot comment on the bar, except to say it looks very welcoming!
If we are ever lucky enough to return to Pisa, we will definitely also return to this hotel.

This hotel has a wonderful location just steps away from the plaza where the leaning tower is located. parking is a block away, but free for hotel guests, and you can unload the car at the hotel doorstep before parking. The room was very comfortable, our only complaint was the thinness of the towels. Breakfast was very nice with fresh delicious pastries and breads, sandwiches, cereal and coffee and juice. We were very happy with our stay.

Excellent position for the train station and the airport shuttle. Rather noisy in the mornings when the street cleaners arrived at 7am. Staff helpful and courteous. However, we were not warned that we would need to keep Euros for the end of our stay to pay extra city taxes on top of our pre-paid bill. Fortunately we did have some cash left as cards were not acceptable.
