Had a lovely stay at this hotel. You can't get much closer to the leaning tower. The check in staff were so friendly and got the cleaners to work on my room first so I could check in early. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. I would stay there again.

Great hotel for 25 euro per night. Including a private double room and a shared bathroom. The room is quite clean and has a tv and access to free wifi which is very convenient! Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location! It is right next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa as well as having nice restaurants, mini supermarkets and...

Great location very near sights, although it is some walking distance from the bus stop (you can take a bus from the train station). Large rooms with comfy bed. Some minor issues - no blanket was provided and the shower was tiny with weak water pressure. There are also 4 floors and no lift. Service was average.

We flew into Pisa airport quite late so just wanted a simple hotel for one night and this was perfect. Getting the bus from the airport is extremely easy (and better than getting the train). When you come out of departures go right towards the tourist info and you can buy bus tickets there' and then you catch the 'red...

Couldn't find a better location, literally 5 minutes or less to the tower! (If you went the correct way!) the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was small but was clean and had all we needed. Strange to comment on but it had loads of plug sockets and well placed mirrors so I found it perfect for getting ready...

We spent 3 nights on a 3rd floor room with private shower. The room was very clean and it was modern (LCD TV, ceiling fan). The reception was very helpful! The sights and restaurants and a mini supermarket just a few steps away.

This is an overdue review. Me and my friend stayed in this hotel in July 2011. We got a room at the third floor if I am not mistaken. The stairs were narrow but didn't pose much problem for us as we take it as an exercise for all the good food that we have been eating in Pisa! The...

This was overall a good little hotel. First, the bad: there is no elevator, so I had to drag my suitcase (thankfully only a small one) up 4 flights of stairs. There is also no phone in the room (for incoming/outgoing calls), the hotel does not provide breakfast, and it is located on a small narrow alley that seems a...

Very central, friendly staff, the room is basic but clean and in a nice building. Ours had a lovely view from 3rd floor. There is no AC but the ceiling fan was very effective, in fact we had to turn it down during the night as we were getting cold!
