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.

In from a late flight*, we were welcomed and helped with luggage (no lift). Ceiling fan (not A/C but quiet). All clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful throughout. We could leave cases in locked room while we visited the sights very nearby in the morning. No breakfast provided but the recommended cafe was only a 100 yards away and was...

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...

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.

Great location - no arguments there. However as we visited during the summer, the lack of air con is something to consider when visiting. There is a fan however that is not enough when the temperatures outside are 30+ degrees Celsius. its good for a quick visit to Pisa however try and get a room that is high and not...

I've stayed one night in this pension (they don't call themselves a hotel which is correct of them). It's really only 1 min from the Pending Tower. It's quiet in the street, though. The room was a double room (I booked it, because I hoped I'd have my own bathroom, but it only had a lavatory, no toilet or shower...

Yes okay for a short stay . Clean and comfortable. Very well situated. Noticed that a number of guests were Italians, so there is a feeling of being among friends. Like many other hotels in the oldest part of towns, be prepared to climb a number of stairs if you are staying on the top floor.

The hotel is in a great location right next to the tower and the street with all of the restaurants. However you have to walk down a tiny side street to get there. The hotel was very clean and the wifi worked well. The vending machines in the reception were very convenient and reasonably priced. The staff were very friendly...
