Right in the middle of town, short walk to main attractions, plenty of restaurants and bars nearby so the fact that the hotel's were shut wasn't a problem. Reception seemed reasonably flexible and helped ensure we didn't get a traffic fine after driving through a pedestrian-only area. Generally OK room, but a bit cramped.

This is not a hotel. It is a very restricted rooming house.
First the good - it's 5 minutes from the Leaning Tower and the Duomo. Pisa is worth a day or two - not more. A better choice would be to stay in Florence and take the train, but if you must stay in Pisa the Dei Fiori is convenient.
Slightly faded, the floral decor appeals to Americans, and anyway has been knocked about so it looks shabby. The carpet in our room was stained. The TV refused to work and could not be mended. The shower tray emptied slowly. The air con was noisy and rattled.
Now the bad side. You cannot check in until 2pm. This is very restrictive if you take an early flight. The reception closes at 9pm (Expedia says 10pm) after which everything is locked. And by locked, I mean that the bar and restaurant, and the reception are behind bars with big padlocks. You can only gain access to the rooms either by using your key, or by calling a sister hotel and waiting to be let in.
Now the bit no one tells you when you book. You must check out by 10am. So the management have definitely suited their arrangements to themselves and not to the customer.
Breakfast is OK, quite restrictive and cold, but whose idea was it to offer one beverage and after that to charge for any extras? So one cappuccino is OK, but the instructions in the room make it plain that's it!
The restaurant says it is open at luch times and evenings. But it isn't. Lunch times only, not evenings. Still, there are a few good trattorias around teh Piazza Cavalieri so don't despair. The staff we met at the Fiori were also friendly, but they did not design the admin did they? £85 a night for this B&B might not be a high price for Italy, but you'd think they might consider the needs of customers more than this?

Reception opens only after 2pm till 9pm. There was no mention on the website when we booked or we would not have booked. We had to leave at 4am and wanted to book a taxi. The reception would not book a taxi but did provide a telephone number. The room was very small. No control of the Aircon and it was noisy. It was cooler to sleep in the corridor. The street is quite noisy. If you can get past that then the location is good.

That's the main problem: it's just a room near the Tower...
Not an hotel, nor really a B&B.
The reception only worked from 3 pm till 11 pm , the bar/restaurant was closed, the veranda basically didn't exist.
The room was nice but overpriced.

Room Tip: Don't waste money by choosing the "Deluxe". If you stay here, go with the "Standa...
