Historical Traveler Reviews Accademia Palace Hotel Pisa

Perfect Airport Hotel Acadmia Palace!

from

Perfectly spotless, helpful, and close to airport. We would DEFINATELY stay here again!

Avoid the food!!

from

This hotel was clean and basic but very much caters for a one night stay market. Very busy late at night with check ins and in the middle of the night for check outs.(near the airport) The entire floor we stayed on checked out at 5 am and so were very very noisey, and the guy in reception just shrugged his shoulders when we asked him to tell them to be a little more considerate, Also the food in the resturant should be avoided at all costs. Very expensive and odd menu. My partner ordered steak and got a lump of meat on a letuce leaf (which was covered in green fly). There is no option for veg or any kind of sauce. I had very dry tastless pasta and the whole thing came in at 55 euros. The american bar is just part of the reception desk and you are served by the receptionist if they have time! All in all not great, but its clean and modern and close to the airport but not town. Quick tip if going into town get the free bus to the train station and then a taxi to the tower etc rather than paying for a taxi all the way there. Ps the tower is worth the climb!!

A good airport hotel

from

We arrived late in the evening and benefitted from the 24 hour check in facility. The bedroom was perfectly adequate if a little characterless but what one would expect from an airport hotel. The staff were good and efficient, breakfast was excellent- better than I had anticipated. A shuttle bus runs from the hotel to the town (station) and airport several times a day which enabled us to pick up our hire car the next day and avoid out of hours supplements and another day's hire.

Too far from Pisa

from

This Hotel was clean, but noisey, with other guests checking in after midnight, we were woken 4 times between midnight and 4am by other guest arriving. The night before a group of lads stayed, whilst on a football tour, they didn't go to bed until 3am. The pool is nice but behind is an industrial estate, so not very relaxing. The breakfast was poor, if you arrived at the wrong time, the bacon and scrambled egg was cold, they frequently ran out of croissants and yougurts.

However the staff were freindly, the courtesy bus to Pisa and the airport was good, if limited. I'd say OK if you have your own transport, as the return journey was 13 euro's a time.

Lovely hotel but you need a car

from

We stayed here for one night while trvaelling through Tuscany and we though it excellent. While it is located out of town near an industrial estate and you will need a car to gte around, the hotel itself was fantastic.

Excellent clean rooms, very friendly service, good english, good food and a nice pool for a quick dip, oh and free internet.

If visiting Pisa again, I would definitely stay here as to stay in the city centre can be very expensive.

A very pleasant hotel

from

Stayed at the Accademia Palace Hotel for one night before flying back to UK.

Hotel is close to the airport, on the edge of a small retail/light industrial estate. Not much to do in immediate area. Room was plain but clean and modern with reasonable bathroom. Swimming pool was very welcome, clean and well maintained. Staff helpful and friendly.

Thought the restaurant was expensive but food was perfectly adequate.

Not too difficult to drive into Pisa.

Accademia was wonderful!

from

I had the good fortune to stay at the Accademia Palace Hotel in Pisa for two nights this June. It was a nice, quiet hotel, had an excellent restaurant on-site, and extremely friendly and informative service. The pool was absolutely wonderful to relax by during the day. There is one PC in the lobby with free internet access. The rooms were clean, the hotel was quiet, and while there is not much to do in the evenings in the area, you can get to the city center by cab for 10-15 Euros one way.

A Pleasure to stay in.

from

I was delighted when our cab driver pulled up to the Accademia Palace hotel just outside of Pisa. The motel, completed in 2003 was a delight and far from plain as mentioned in another review. We were greeted by a very pleasant girl who spoke excellent English and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and answered all of our questions fully and even called us a cab that came right away. The motel has plenty of eye appeal inside and out and a wonderful and relaxing pool. The rooms were very modern clean and the bathrooms were equally as lavishly decorated with Italian Marble. Guests are treated to a delightful breakfast each morning with many European delights, free internet access in the lobby, and a restaurant that boasts a chef of excellent standing in the Rossini restaurant right on the premesis. I had two of my most favorite and unique pasta dishes in all my stays in Italy at the Accademia Palace. One was a hand made pasta dish with incredibly fresh mushrooms. The other, and orriechette pasta dish with wedges of Pecorino cheese adorning the dish. The motel was free of noise on the two nights we stayed with plenty of cool air provided by the room climate control. Unlike a previous review writer, we were delighted with the location away from the city center as hotels can be less fully equipt and noisy in city centers. A simple cab ride from extremely honest cabbies was our best choice to get to the Tower of Pisa in a few short minutes. This was my favorite motel that we stayed in our 21 day trip to Europe. I can't say enough fine things about it.

Nice hotel; free internet in the lobby

from

The hotel was part of a Conitiki tour. It wasn't located near any tourist sights but the room was very nice. White interiors. Breakfast and dinner were good at the hotel

Plain and outside of city center

from

I have just come back from a tour of all Italy. I have booked the hotels myself and one of the criteria was that the hotel needed to be in central location so I won't have to use my car once checked in. I searched the location for the Accademia on the internet thanks to their postcode. It guaranteed a central location which in reality was not the case. The Accademia is a very businessy orientated hotel. Very impersonal and located at convenient airport but not city access. The rooms are clean and fully equiped with internet and satelite access for those who can't switch of. City center is 10 mins away by car.

... kicked out of venue for quite a few years! Some of us continued at the bar and then I left at 11 and the others all left about 15 minutes later. Fiona and Annette had gone down town and got caught in the rain storm that went through.
We asked the waiter the next day if he was happy because Italy won, he said "yes, but he had celebrated a bit much and was feeling the effects". I think some of our group were a bit seedy the next day also but not because of the soccer!

... Tower but also the Cathedral (Duomo di Pisa) and Baptistery which are beautiful in their own right. These exceptional marble monuments are stretched out along expansive grassy areas.

The Leaning Tower itself has been newly cleaned which highlights the brilliance of its white marble. The lean is so much more noticeable when you have the structure right in front of you. At the base, from ground level, you ...

... to head to Siena. So we board a train that took us back to Florence.

Back in Florence we were nothing but disappointed as we found out that the car hire companies would not let us rent a vehicle the following day as there was some special bicycle race that went through the city and all streets were shut down for this event. Therefore no cars could get in or out that day. Disappointed, nay, shattered that we only had one day left and would not see the Tuscan countryside ...

... there but they put larger parties in the back room. Me and another single older lady got the smallest tables right at the entrance and the wine rack. I guess singles are treated the way they are in the US, put them off in a corner. The place seemed to be used to foreigners because they had English subtitles in the menu, but the food was a lot better in Monopoli. I was just glad they were open, later as walked ...
