Stayed here overnight as had an early start for a 7am flight from Pisa Airport. The staff at reception were very kind and helpful. I was told that a shuttle transfer would cost 15 euros, but that as another three passengers had booked we would each pay 4 euros, so worth asking if there is a shuttle to share. The... More

Perfect location near airport, 5 minute drive. Cute place, the art throughout the hotel is amazing to look at. Restaurant was amazingly delicious!!!! However, our room smelt so bad when we got to it, like a horrible incense smell. We had to open the window and prop the door open for about 30 minutes to air it out. the room's... More

Nice hotel, comfortable the room and spacious room. The bed is ok, AC is ok. Wifi is working as the staff gave you the info on how to login. For a one night stay is comfortably nice. The staff is nice.

This hotel is below average, There is no effective soundproofing, you can hear people talking in the room above. Shower is a trickle, non-thermostatic affair cutting out every 60 seconds or so, switching to cold water and then scalding you with hot water immediately after. The decor is a "90's student dorm" style with really no redeeming features I can... More

Though we stayed here for only one night, the hotel proved to be nib for our stay. The room was spacious , very clean and comfortable. The lobby area was also well maintained and well lit and provided a nice place for a chat! The breakfast spread was nice and offered good variety.

We specifically chose this hotel in order to get an early sleep. Although the hotel seems to be close to the airport, it has to be reached by taxi. When we arrived to the airport there weren't may available taxis and we had to wait in line for about an hour. The cost is about 10 euros each way. I´d... More
