Visit to Pisa 1/9/09 to 5/9/09
This hotel has a great location; a stone’s throw from the railway station. One can easily walk to the tower, catch a train or go to the airport. The room was #507 which was away from the street, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The air-conditioning worked and wasn’t too noisy. The shower area was very clean and smart but I could not avoid getting the bathroom floor a little wet. There was no noise from the lift nor from the guests. Breakfast was OK, provided one arrived in time! One morning there were no boiled eggs and ham was in short supply. I asked for an egg only to be told that the day’s limit had been reached and that was it! The absence of eggs, etc may be due to the fact that some guests were making items for lunch!? Get down early! We met three staff; two ladies and a man. One was the Italian version of Basil Fawlty whilst one of the ladies was a female equivalent. The 0630 takeoff meant that breakfast was unlikely. There was no offer of an alternative (e.g. roll + something else). Basil did make me a cup of coffee but was not terribly excited by the thought. So, the reason we gave the hotel a low rating is because of Basil and his assistant, no egg for breakfast and no grub for the missed breakfast. Would still recommend it but would not go back to Pisa as we have "done it". Would find somewhere in Florence and stay in Pisa the day before flying out. A good holiday which might have been a little better!
