Everyone's idea of the best hotel is subjective, but this hotel is high on my list.
it is a converted monastery and the rooms retain much of the original features including wall decorations. This is a prime example where less is more. The rooms are incredibly atmospheric and have a unique charm. It does need to be experienced to believe how peaceful this hotel is. The square in the centre of the hotel offers an experience which I adore. The square at the centre of the hotel feels very protected and is gloriously beautiful. I chose to spend a day just reading books in the garden there. It was a day i will treasure.
To get to the facilities, the room I stayed in was a monks cell and was very plain in a very lovely way. The bathroom was effectively the next monk's cell converted into a very luxurious marble lined room. All the facilities were immaculately clean and well provided with toiletries from the local providers, which means the that the hotel makes the effort to give the guest the finest toiletries there are.
The staff are very attentive way beyond what I would expect. I deeply appreciate one employee of the hotel walking with me into Pisa town and showing me a little piazza of bars and restaurants which only the locals would know existed.
In addition, this is the only hotel I know which has a church as an integral part of the building!
