Room was large enough for two or three (my family stayed in another room) Given a disabled room at check-in, which we were not happy with. The hotel promised to do something, but did nothing to give us another room. They Claimed the hotel was full, but we saw people check in and out all the time we were there....

the light marble exterior can make the hotel look like a concrete box when first seen.The surrounding area of shops/restaurants etc looks a bit "tired" but is adequate.The transfer time from Pisa airport was about 20-30 mins at the most which is great.On arrival reception very helpful, but had to find own room as no porters to help if needed.Room...

Let me start by saying the staff were lovely but this hotel is seriously dated, tired and shabby! How it ever got a 4* rating is beyond me. Rooms were very average and bathroom - shower only - very small. The building itself is a concrete monstrosity and although we had a room with a balcony over looking the pool...

Do not be put off my the exterior of the Grand Hotel Continental, what it lacks in architectural substance it makes up for in many other areas. Rooms were more than adequate and very clean, food was delicious and, if anything, there was too much of it! Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is perfectly situated a short...

This place is abysmal. The room we had was miniscule, had no view, a grotty, discolored rug and a free-standing mini fridge as the "mini bar." The staff was reasonably pleasant, but could not make up for the dismal atmosphere and run-down, ill-conceived infrastructure of the hotel itself. I would strongly encourage people to seek shelter elswhere.

I spent two weeks here and must say it was a fantastic hotel. Some parts could do with a lick of paint, but I could say that about most hotels in Italy Breakfast is continental buffet and also has scrambled eggs and sausages. You can sit in the breakfast dining room or go onto the terrace in the sun. It's...

Do you remember the film Dirty Dancing? The hotel or resort in that film? The Grand Continental in Tirrenia (12 km from Pisa) is very much like this. A trip back to the seventies, including old (but generally friendly) waiters, musicians with an odd American-Italian portfolio, a somewhat deteriorated state of the hotel, and last but not least: mandatory swimming...
