A well equipped hotel full of charm and character in a quiet back street easily walkable to the Duomo and tower. Lovely double height beamed room and great breakfast. We were able to park right outside the hotel and there are excellent "non-touristy" restaurants nearby that were recommended by the hotel, in which we had one of the best Italian meals I have ever enjoyed. Apart from the Duomo and tower, there isn't a lot to Pisa, but it's only twenty minutes drive from the airport so we stayed overnight before going on to Siena the following day. The hotel would be a lovely place for a relaxing weekend break.
We have just returned from a four night stay at the Grand Duomo Hotel in Pisa. Great location only minutes from the Cathedral and Leaning Tower and lots of bars and restaurants to choose from within a short walk. The room was really nice, clean and comfortable and had a very effective air conditioning system which was extremely useful due to the very hot weather. The breakfast offered a good variety of food for all tastes (even toast and marmalade), the staff were courteous and helpful and most spoke very good English.
Excellent hotel only ten minutes walk from the station one way and ten minutes walk from the main sights the other! Room was fine and every staff member we came into contact with was cheerful, polite and helpful. Breakfast was good and there was tea and coffee making facilities in the room. We would stay there again. The hotel also offers a car to the airport for 5 euros per person.
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.

Lovely hotel, with particularly helpful and friendly staff who went out of their way to accommodate my gluten free diet. A short walk to San Giuliano station provides great access to Pisa, Lucca and Florence.
