We dont know Pisa and we didnt pay a lot so we were pleasantly surprised by the location and look of the hotel when the taxi dropped us of at about 10.30pm. We dumped the bags and headed for one of the numerous Piazza. When we returned to our room we went straight to bed so it wasnt until the next morning we started to explore. We went down to breakfast and to be honest I wasnt expecting a lot and my expectations were fully met. There were fresh croisant, continental cereals, cheese and ham, fresh friut salad, yoghurt, water, biscuits, tea and coffee, it was ok. We stayed for four days and over the days the fresh fruit salad disappeared, then the pots of yogurt and then the water was reduced to one bottle of still and one bottle of fizzy water, but in fairness it would be replenished if you asked. (but you had to ask!)
The room was right above the front door and was a reasonable size, the TV only played foreign channels, BBC world news would have been good. It was reasonably clean up to the height of about 6 ft but anything above that had not been cleaned for some time, the rooms had very high ceilings. The bed was comfortable, and the room was serviced with clean towels every day. I had a problem with the safe on day one and despite repeated requests this was never sorted. ( I think a safe is a necessity) on relection even if it had been fixed there would still be a problem as it was located in a flimsy cupboard and not even fixed to the cupboard, so any thief could have walked away with it.
Staff varied from very helpful to uninterested, all were polite.
At the end of the day we decided to stay, stop complaining about the safe and breakfast and enjoy what we came for Pisa, Florence, Lucca and the Andrea Bocelli concert, which was great.
I dont think I will be revisiting the Verdi Pisa.
