Unimpressive check-in from a harassed receptionist dealing with incoming phone calls as well as arriving guests. Comfortable room decorated with light wood and orange highlights. Excellent desk and wardrobe provided. Flooring was vinyl oak-look planks. The lighting system in the room was unsatisfactory. One bedside light would not turn off until the room key had been removed from the light...

Good hotel very closed to the airport of Pisa so convenient for arrival or departure for an Italian trip. The bedrooms are clean. Staff is very accommodating and breakfast is good. There are some special accommodations for people with early flights.

Dear Olivier280, as Hotel Galilei is the nearest hotel close to the airport, we accommodate a lot of passengers going to the airport. That's because we offer a light snack for those leaving very early. Monica Marketing Off.

After a late night arrival at the airport I stayed one night here as I did not want to blunder about in a strange city in the dark. Simple clean friendly hotel and good value. Wifi worked and breakfast was Pre packed but sufficient. I would not stay longer and moved into the city the following morning (25 mins walk)...

The hotel itself was clean, the staff friendly and the food in the restaurant tasty; BUT, this restaurant is in the industrial area of town and not within walking distance to town. They do have shuttle service via private car but it costs €15 per journey (to town, the airport or the train station).

First thing to be said: if you are visiting Pisa on holidays, DON'T stay in this hotel. The money you will save with your room, you will spend with taxis to/from the airport and the city centre. Now the hotel itself: it is supposed to be a 4 stars, but I particularly don't agree. Maximum 3 stars. The room size...

My friends, 5 mature ladies, visiting a number of towns in Italy stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were acceptable and we had 3 rooms close together. The breakfast was not as good as expected but there was enough to choose from on the buffet. The only snag was that it was out of the town and we had...

Why people complain about this place I do not know. Its an inexpensive airport hotel offering just what airport hotels offer. Staff are all friendly and willing to help, rooms are clean, well appointed and warm, ding not 5 start but great food for the style of establishment. Certainly easy to get to the airport and to the Leaning tower,...

We, an Asian family of 10, stayed at place on Oct 11, 2016 and had the breakfast service.

This is a no fuss, basic hotel. I stayed 1 night before catching my flight from Pisa airport. The room was large, clean and quiet. The bathroom was spacious and also very clean.
