We stayed in the suite for 4 with private bathroom, which is spacious and well-equipped. It's a simple and low budget hotel, so basic amenities are provided (towels and soap), but there are no extra's in the room although some items can be borrowed at the reception desk. There's a vending machine in the lobby that sells drinks for cheap,... More

We booked the 4 person room on the 4th floor, which consists of two separate rooms and a bathroom. The rooms are spacious and well maintained, with traditional Italian shutters at the windows. We had no noise complaints, the rooms were cleaned everyday, and the beds are soft with enough blankets. There is a lounge area downstairs, and a terrace... More

I landed at Pisa airport around 8 and actually walked to this hotel, though I wouldnt advise that if you have luggage. We were staying here one night before we went to Cinque Terre the next day. The room was comfortable enough. Overly firm beds, but that seemed to be the case throughout Italy. We stayed on the ground floor,... More

Situated less than 5 minutes away from the leaning tower on a quiet street. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean,comfortable and well equipped. Only here for 1 night but great place to stay if you want to visit the tower.

Clean, quiet and well-appointed rooms with private or shared baths just steps away from Piazza Duomo and many other must see attractions in Pisa. Free wi-fi and short walk to many excellent restaurants.

Great location - 1 minute walk to tower. Has a little outside sitting area as well which is nice. The wifi wasn't working for the rooms but was in the common areas. The mattress was old so wasn't as comfortable as some of the other places we stayed. For the price and location I can't really complain.

With this hotel you absolutely get what you pay for. The rooms are basic but functional. The bathroom was clean and the shower was warm. The fan worked well and wasn't too noisy to leave on overnight. We had a double room with a private bathroom and were glad we went for this option. There was more of a hostel... More

The hotel is very very close to the tower. The staff is very gentle and accommodations are fine. If you are looking for a well located and cheap rooms, this hotel is just perfect. I went to Pisa twice, and stay there all the times.
