Not too much to write home about. If you need to stay close to the airport. This is ideal, Only a 10min cab journey from the airport. The rooms are functional - plenty of plug points and a reasonable size. Decor is a bit dated and the breakfast was incredibly bland. Book here if you need to stay a night close to the airport, otherwise find a better hotel in town.

We spent a night here after our British Airways flight was delayed. Its reception and bar area lacks any character and feels like the reception of a 1980s office block, the corridors to the rooms are decorated in very tacky artwork that looks like it's been stapled together by a load of school kids. The rooms were clean and functional but tea and coffee making facilities would have been nice. The buffet dinner we were provided with was without doubt one of the worst I have ever had. After hours sat in an airport we were served onion rings, mozzarella balls, some cheap sliced meat and chips all of which were cold. Halfway through they bought out some pasta with a jar of tasteless passata poured over it with no obvious signs of any seasoning or attempt to add flavour! In the morning, the breakfast wasn't much better and the staff seem to have skipped the customer service training. This place is budget, its close to the airport and appears to have parking, so it does have some plus points but I really would suggest looking elsewhere for food!

We had a delayed flight and needed somewhere to sleep. This hotel had decent prices and a 24h reception. The breakfast was ok and somewhat international. A decent hotel with good location. 10 euros by taxi from the airport.

Stayed in this hotel twice now over the last 2 years. Only a few minutes in a taxi to Pisa centre and the airport so good location. Clean and quite modern but not much personality. Staff ok. Rang hotel whilst in the city centre to help us get a taxi back to the hotel but receptionist was rude and just said not their job and would not help. Obviously safety doesn't come first for their guests? Hotel Ok for a overnight stay.

We were sent here when our late evening Easyjet flight was cancelled. The staff were extremely helpful, finding toothpaste and helping with new boarding passes for flights later in the week. The kitchen staff also rustled up freshly cooked food and seemed genuinely concerned that we were looked after. As Easyjet had cancelled two flights to London that evening it was very busy! Just wanted to say thank you to all the staff who were genuinely human.

This is a hotel which is handy for the airport and for Pisa sightseeing. We were allowed to check in early and were very pleased with the rooms. We had lunch in the Bistro and had dinner outside. Because of the location the outside was noisy. The bedroom air conditioning was just ok. The big disappointment was the breakfast. It is served in a large, noisy room. The staff are rushed and it was like being in a hostel.

Modern building near Pisa airport, rooms are comfortable and reasonably well appointed. Restaurant is good and service really friendly and helpful. This alone, in my view, justifies the 4 stars. Free parking outside and really cheap rate for underground parking, which I recommend if you're leaving your car here for hours on end - if only to keep it out of the sun and to get back to a cool car. If you're driving in, the address you want to key in is Via di Nugolaio corner of Via Aurelia. By the time you get there, the hotel will be in sight. My GPS would not recognize the Via Darsena address and it took me a while to get here.

Located in right position in Pisa , near airport and also to other tourist and business destinations. Rooms are good with desired facilities . Hotel can add coffee / tea cattle and a bottle of water complimentary in room to make the stay more charming. We had a short meeting also in this hotel with 23 participants and arrangement was very good . I liked the breakfast menu , ambience in breakfast restaurant, service with hospitality and smile by all staff in this hotel , nice bar to lounge and chat , large parking and open seating front of hotel . Overall an authentic destination to stay in Pisa , Italy .

Ok room, but you could hear everything from your neighbours, including when they peed. The best thing was the bed, great size and comfortable. Breakfast was ok. Great location, close to both the airport and the train station. No noise from planes or cars.

Stayed at this hotel for one night only, thank heavens. The attraction was its proximity to the airport, and thus should be thought of in terms of a 'transit' hotel. Pleasant enough from the exterior, but inside, very dated and tired. The staff helpful enough, but the room, a disappointment. Tired, no complementary coffee making or even bottles of water, just a room bar, at the usual exorbitant prices. Bear in mind this is allegedly a 4 star hotel. The beds were without doubt the least comfortable I have ever slept on, and I have travelled to most of the continents. On top of that at 5.30 am disturbed by those above apparently re arranging their room by dragging their furniture around on a hard floor. Didn't dare stop for breakfast, and took the hotel taxi to the airport. Driven by one of the Schumaker group of drivers, arrived barely 5 mins later, cost €15. Our advice, steer well clear. It will be kinder on your wallet, your back and your sleep.
