Good central location and fabulous staff

Posted May 31, 2017
Pros: Location and friendliness
Cons: Bar is limited, we would have loved to sit in the garden for a nightcap. Rooms could do with a safe for valuables.
Location: Central to all we needed, 5/10 mins to Leaning Tower and restaurants, river, botanical gardens and 15 minutes to train station
This is not a luxury hotel, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff more than make up for that. Rooms are clean and whilst some are small they have really high ceilings so feel quite spacious. Our bathroom was small but adequate for our stay (4 nights). We requested extra pillows and staff provided them for us. Bed was comfortable and housekeeping was daily. Air conditioner was a great bonus. No safe in the room so we kept valuables with us. We were on the 2nd floor, there isn't a lift but staff offered to help us with luggage. The two brothers who manned reception during our stay where really helpful and lovely. Breakfast was fine for me, l love salami and cheese, but they also had yoghurt, cereal, fruit and sweet croissants. Bar limited but fridge in every room so you can always purchase your own. Area felt really safe and was 5/10 minutes stroll from Leaning Tower and a further 5/10 minutes stroll to the train station. Train was cheap, on time, frequent, fast and clean. We travelled to Lucca twice. Hotel is centrally placed to explore the tourist area around the Leaning Tower, the river area and the main shopping and restaurant area in the centre.

Good hotel at a great location

Posted Oct 12, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel Soggiorno Athena is located 100 meters from the bus stop to the airport and the central train station (20 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to the central train station) and less than a 10-minute walk from the Square of Miracles, where The Leaning Tower of PIsa, The Cathedral, The Baptistry and most of the other major Pisa attractions are located. The location is amazing, and the hotel itself is quite nice for a 3-star property. The rooms are not big, but they are maybe 4 meters high, so you don't feel any lack of space. Bathroom cabins are quite small, but still comfortable - as everything else in the bathroom. There is free wifi (not great speed, though, as usually free wifis are), decent breakfast and a very friendly service. Cleanness is at a very high level.

good location to Pisa attractions

Posted Apr 8, 2016
Basic but comfortable hotel within easy walking distance to attractions, shops and restaurants etc. Hotel was ok for 3 night stay, buffet breakfast was fine and consisted of cold meats, salami and cheese, cereals, yoghurts, croissants, toast, rolls orange juice and lovely cappuccino. Helpful reception staff giving you info and city map. Transfer from airport an ideal 10 minutes in a taxi at 13 euro. Would definitely recommend taking a train which was only 20 mins and 17 euro return for 2 adults and a child to Lucca, a lovely walled town with quaint shops and restaurants a nice change from the busy area of Pisa!!

A very pleasant stay

Posted Oct 6, 2015 on Hotels
I stayed for three nights in this very pleasant and comfortable hotel. The staff just could not be more charming and helpful. The hotel is very clean and I had a very good stay . Breakfast is simple but good and costs 5 euros. It is close to the Leaning Tower and some very good restaurants.

Moldy smells!

Posted Sep 8, 2015 on Hotels
Hotel is small and very close to the Leaning Tower - our only real complaint was no elevator and no one to help with luggage plus the overwhelming smell of mold in the bathroom. They had two scent plug ins that were so strong - I had to unplug them. Otherwise, sheets were clean, room was clean, price was right. Breakfast was decent. Staff was very nice. I just have an allergic reaction to Mold and it really bothers me.
