A very futuristic hotel and very different. We found it clean and comfortable and the staff very friendly and heplful. We ate in the restaurant which was slightly disappointing and qutie expensive. but no real complaints. My only crticism is that there was no tea or coffee in the room. The hotel is out of the city but the buses are very close and frequent. A free mini bus service to and from the airport is provided if you book in advance.(but not after 9:00pm)

Very disappointing. Dark( black walls and all),depressing rooms, the darkness hides the dirt and the strange spots in the bed. Not a very good personal ( not very sympathetic ) and very expensive and not good food. We asked to change rooms, because our junior suite has a door conection that had a wc smell coming. We were downgraded to a smaller room, but the problems were still there ( minus the conection door). Like most hotels in Italy the ac doesnt work until halv of may, even If the temperatures inside the room reach 22 C. Really disappointed that this hotel is the number one in T.A.

The hotel overall is abit weird to be honest although it's very modern and clean it's like a spaceship and u find yourself a little put off by the sheer futuristic feel it has.
The location is poor and a taxi will cost around 9 euros into town which is roughly 2km away. It was overall unimpressive on a positive the staff were very helpful and well presented.

Even if the hotel is far from the city (but we had chosen it in advance because we had a car) it's worth staying there. It's a very nice design! The room have mirrors everywhere and they are fashionable. The bar and restaurant were excellent. The bed was SO great! We could rest very well and did not hear any noise at all! We will surely come back!

We sayed at the Hotel San Ranieri in Pisa for a week. The hotel is situated approx 1 hour from the main attractions (easy to walk into town). The hotel is clean and modern and serves a great breakfast. However we found that dinner was a rip off for the portion sizes (tiny!) and there were additional costs (such as paying to use WIFI, - always had this available free in every other hotel). There are no tea/coffee facilities in the room and no iron either, again very strange! Also 1 english TV channel - CNN !!
Very easy to get into town via bus (Lam Blu or 14 or the 13 from outside the hotel). Bus tickets 1 euro each and last an hour once you stamp in, watch out for national hols as travel is free so no need to get ticket. You can get the Red bus from the airport to the train station and then a lam blu straight to the hotel. Takes about 30 mins so very easy.
Nothing nearby Hotel (apart from a hospital), no restuarants so it was a pain to find somewhere cheap to eat. There is a great supermarket though (about 10 mins from Hotel) called Esenlunga (situated in a small mall). Does great value food and other things. Easy train journeys to Florence and Lucca from main station! Def go back to Pisa but not sure if we would stay at the same hotel for reasons given.

I stayed in this hotel on the basis of so many positive reviews. I wish I had stayed elsewhere. Although the hotel was clean and the staff were ok, it was basically a really weird place to stay! The style of the hotel is meant to be modern and futuristic but it just doesn't work. It has a clinical feel to it and when I was there this was made worse by the fact that there was no one else staying. The location is not good if you want to visit the leaning tower. The breakfast is bland and limited and not up to general Italian standards. There is a strange lighting system in the rooms that I was never able to work out and the lights would randomly switch on and off by themselves in the middle of the night. I would definitely not recommend this hotel to travellers looking for a relaxing and pleasurable stay in Pisa,
