We stayed here for 3 nights in early August in room 526.
We easily found the hotel after getting the shuttle bus from the airport to the station as the hotel is minutes from the station entrance. The actual entrance to the hotel is set in an arcade which during the day contains a few 'characters' to say the least. They are a bit intimidating upon arrival but you kind of start to ignore them the longer you stay!
We found the decor of the hotel a little odd and dated but it did add a degree of charm which made it feel a bit more family owned rather than an out of the box chain hotel. We didn't have the greatest view from our room (a dereleict courtyard of some kind) but that really didn't bother us. The wifi signal was ok in strength but did log you out everytime I took my phone away from the hotel but I guess thats just communal wifi for you.
The staff seem nice and were more than helpful for recommending where to avoid and where to go for eating. The breakfast was pretty outstanding with a huge selection to choose from along with a vast selection of drinks. The old boy with the beard (maybe the owner?) did take a slight dislike to leaving items at breakfast but we found this quite amusing!
The room again was pretty dated in it's decoration but again we only used it as a base so really didn't require more, the air con in our room was not the greatest and did struggle to cool the room to a comfortable temperature.
Pisa is a lovely place and this hotel lets you explore the city at your own pace along with the benefit of being able to explore other parts of Tuscany such as Lucca (which is beautiful!) and Florence using the train.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and to be honest we'd definitely stay here again!
