“One night stay was ideal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2013

Great price, location 1 minute walk to tower. Pisa is quite small so easy walk to most areas.
Staff were helpful and pleasant. Plenty of shops and food places close by. There were 3 adults in one room 3 single beds were provided which was great.

Stayed for a long weekend. The hotel is located minutes away from the leaning tower and restaurants. It's clean, staff are friendly and it's all for a great price. There's somewhere to leave your luggage if you have a late flight.

We have just returned home from a weekend in Pisa, the city is beautiful, sadly the same can not be said about our hotel. our room was on the second floor (directly opposite the lift, room 201) first impressions were that the room needed a coat of paint, plaster flaking off the walls, lights in bathroom were damaged and plug for shaving in bathroom did not work. the towels were also thin and rough. however, we overlooked this as we were not expecting 5 star quality. when we returned from our night out, we were made aware of a couple in the next room, you could hear what they were saying clearly, and also heard the majority of their intimate encounter!! The WiFi did not work, so we were unable to use our mobiles. On our last day (Tuesday, 6th November) we were awoken at 7am by workmen drilling and hammering in the next room. when we checked out,at 11am we asked if we could leave our luggage in a secure area, as our flight was not untill 10pm, we were told no, as the hotel is closing as it was the end of the season. this meant we had to carry two large suitcases around Pisa for the rest of the day. only positive experience was the location, situated 100 metres from the tower. there are also some lovely restaurants nearby. overall, Beautiful city, Poor hotel.

I stayed one night at the Francesco in mid September - my room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the room looked on to the street so there was some noise from pedestrians and motor scooters - both in the evening and early morning. The hotel's web page is misleading in that it states breakfast is available, not so, although there some good places nearby. Wi-fi only worked in the lobby.
Despite these negatives, I found the reception staff very helpful even going so far as to find me a hairdryer when I reported the one in my room was faulty. The hotel's location was ideal for a solo traveller. It is very close to the duomo and leaning tower and the area felt quite safe to walk in alone at night. The price was very reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the street.

We were statying many hotels in Italy in our trip this month (october 2012). this was the most special one we stayed. Great welcome and Great smile alway from the receptionist. My wife and 2 and half year old were too happy ! we stayed in the 3rd floor with a spacious room. Location is Fab - just 50 steps to the Tower to see that in day and night.. lovely restaurants for eating and drinking with in few steps..

What a great place! The location of the hotel couldnt have been better - literally 2 minutes away from the tower. There were some fabulous restaurants nearby, one we went to time and time again.

The rooms were clean, spacious and exactly what we needed. We were on the 4th floor and we were the only room up there. It was lovely and quiet and we werent bothered by anyone at all.

The receptioninsts were excellent - i left my mobile in a cab and they did everything they could to help me retrieve it by calling all the companies and asking around. Perfectly lovely and really helpful.

Would def stay here again and would def recommend it :D
