Located directly outside Pisa train station, this hotel is very easy to find. Tourist spots like Leaning Tower are about a 20 minute walk away. The staff are ok, some friendly, some a bit abrupt. They expect payment on check-in, cash or card. The rooms are adequate, the air-conditioning is intermittent and takes time to figure out how to turn it on. It says free Wifi but it never worked for us. There is NO safe in the room and you have to hand your key to reception every time you leave hotel, so leaving valuables in the room is a risk. We padlocked everything in our case and put it under the bed. Room has a fridge but buy drinks outside hotel and put them in there yourself. Bed is reasonably comfy, bit hard and only 3 pillows. Hotel can get a bit noisy at night, the reception is echoey and the people above us were restless for some reason.
Breakfast was quite good actually. 7:30-10:00: tea and coffee, juice, fresh water, bread, meats, cereals, yoghurts, pastries, even scrambled egg and sausages. This made a difference.
They lock reception after midnight, so make sure you get the code for the side gate if staying out later than that.
Overall it's a hit and miss hotel but does the job for the price.More
