It is such a beautiful small, family hotel. The hosts are great, the position is amazing, the room is comfortable. Easy to find, simple to communicate and well equipped. I had a wonderful time and I absolutely recommend !

Very welcoming and helpful service. The owner was very friendly even with our late arrival due to getting a taxi late while there was a festival in the city. The rooms were comfortable and clean and we had a restful night. It is a stone’s throw from the Leaning Tower. 😊

Room Tip: It was a festival in the city on 16 June so getting a taxi from the airport was a nightmare due...

This hotel is literally around the corner from the tower. The hotel was squeaky clean with lovely white crisp sheets and large white towels. It is a charming place to stay in pisa. There is no lift and our room was on the third floor, but we were aware of this before we booked. We had a lovely view from our room. Breakfast is not included but there are cafes and restaurants very nearby.

We chose this hotel because of its location and the value for money. It was excellent. The people at the hotel were very nice and helpful. The room, although small was more than acceptable for a few nights and was spotlessly clean. The location was fantastic, literally ten yards from numerous bars and restaurants and a couple of hundred yards from the tower.

Great location close to the cathedral and tower. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. It’s a simple hotel, with good firm beds, classic style rooms. We got the room right next to the shower. For breakfast you’d need to go outside, which is our preference in any event. City tax, you need to pay in cash.

So it's not the most beautiful building in the world and the rooms are basic however the location is amazing! You are literally a stone's throw from the tower and it's grounds and the hotel backs on to one of the best Streets to be near for the markets. Really enjoyed our stay and the room was clean and more than adequate for our stay

Hotel is very close to the tower! The owners are nice! Stayed here for 1 night. Basic room, no breakfast, weak wifi inside the room. Good value for money and location! If you booked through agoda, you might need to pay in the hotel with credit card or cash. No amex!

This is very basic accomodation but does the job. We only stayed a night, rooms were clean. Decor is a bit dated, shower was good. Make sure you spray yourself with mozzie spray. We had a few of them sneak in our room from somewhere. No A/C but the fan worked perfectly fine. The leaning tower is literally a 3 minute walk. Easy process checking in and out - no issues.
