I stayed at this hotel in October 2013 for a birthday weekend getaway. Getting to the hotel was fairly easily, 15 minute taxi ride from airport. There are bus stops nearby where you can catch a bus to the city centre. While the buses did take some time to arrive, the journey to the city centre was just about 10 mins and from there, you could pretty much walk to key sites like the Leaning Tower, etc. The hotel is located in a residential area, so it was very quiet around and felt very safe. There weren't too many guests at the hotel itself when we visited, which was also a plus since you didn't feel as if you were competing for space, which is sometimes the case when it's full of people. Breakfast was fairly varied, reasonable range of breads, cheeses, fruit. We tried dinner at the hotel 1 night and it was exceptional! Ravioli and the fish in particular. Kudos to the chef.
The cost of the package (flight and hotel) was also quite good and we were really happy, especially since breakfast was included.
My only grouse was that the buses did not run frequently. Also, in order to go to Florence, we had to take a bus to the city centre, then one to the airport, where you got the coach to Florence. I didn't anticipate that but it's perhaps because I didn't do sufficient research beforehand.
All in all, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Contemporary hotel in the busy district of Cisanello, two kilometres from Piazza dei Miracoli and its famous leaning tower …More
Excellent hotel within 20 minute flat walk of Pisa centre. Good sized room at the rear of the building which was very quiet, ample sized bathroom with shower cubicle. All area's of hotel maintained to a high standard of cleanliness.
After reading some previous reviews the breakfast was a very pleasant surprise. Good choice of items including cereals, fruit, bread, croissants, eggs & bacon.
Staff very friendly & helpful.
If the 20 minute walk into Pisa sounds too daunting then the "Blue line" bus leaves from the bus stop directly opposite the hotel every 10 minutes, which drops you off outside the railway station. We travelled to both Florence ( 50 mins ) & Lucca by train ( 25 mins ). If you are planning on visiting this area for a short break then Lucca is a must see location, easy to get to & most things can be seen in a full day.
It is a €15 taxi ride from the airport to the hotel, which takes about 10 minutes.
Bus stops close to this hotel so that's convenient if you're arriving by train. It was a very.nice, very clean, quiet hotel. Great bathroom and shower! Beautiful view out the window. Only negative was our double bed was made up of two twins so even though we pushed them together, they were still two twins. Also, there are not many places to eat nearby but as far as the hotel goes, we loved it. We would definitely stay again!
