  • Family with children
    8.0

    Location within the city walls, "grand old hotel" atmosphere, convenient shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Modern rooms.

    As an old hotel it is not handicapped-friendly (we knew that already having stayed there before, but feel the hotel is worth the effort)

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    The location was particularly good. Very comfortable large room and very good breakfast. Staff very helpful in giving info on flights because Pisa airport was closed for a while when we were there.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Good location with knowledgeable and charming staff

    Breakfast buffet was a bit basic for the price

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    a very friendly atmosfere - both staff and the building - felt very wellcome. Good location near both to the railwaystation and the buss station.

    I would like to have the possibility to watch one of the international news-channels in english.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    The historic district and the quaint old building

    The staff was not sure of the area, with the exception of one person. Breakfast was not to the standard of the historic hotel. The beds were very uncomfortable. Woke with back pain.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Balcony facing the square and a proper bathroom, although the tub was a bit too small. Atmosphier of a good old 19th century grand hotel. The staff was efficient, smily and helpful.

    No satelite channel on TV. I do not watch TV very often but it is useful to have some channels which are in English.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Good quality Italian hotel in a nice location. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and understated .

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    This was reasonably priced faded grandeur. Excellent location. Nice terrace at the front to sit and watch the main square.

    Breakfast - just ok.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We arrived at the hotel having been at our house in Italy for a few weeks, so minus any documentation. Panic stations as we realised we should have had passports, or at the very leats driving licence - but we came by train! The staff were so helpful. Our reason for visiting (the Elton John concert) could have been eliminated with less obliging staff, but they couldn't have been more understandinbg. Comfortable, quiet, air conditioned room. Great location. Very happy with our stay.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    As on previous visits, we found the location of the hotel very convenient.

    We left a day early, as the room became almost unusable due to the appalling noise from a rock concert which was taking place in the adjoining piazza

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Great location, comfortable hotel with the charm of older times. The best restaurant in town is right next door.

    As always in Italy, the beds are a bit hard.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very comfortable, close to everything and very clean

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Have stayed before location excellent had a group on a painting holiday

    Parking although not that much of a problem

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Good service and facilities in an historic building located on a beautiful piazza.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    We loved the location, the architecture and the overall atmosphere. We requested a room with a view of the Duomo and #71 was beautifully decorated in blue and white. The female staff member who worked mornings/afternoons was especially helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was also quite nice with the option of sitting outdoors!
