      Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Duomo Pisa

      Nothing Special

      from

      I was slightly disappointed with this hotel compared to previous hotels I had stayed in Italy(Rome and Florence) that were a three and two star respecitively.

      My impression of the hotel is that it had seen better days!! Perhaps once it was Grand but now a rather drab hotel in need of decoration.

      However it was clean and reasonably priced and the breakfast was adequate.

      Location is good for the leaning Tower of Pisa. Only stayed for one night and that is all you need in Pisa unless you are using it as a base to explore other areas.

      Good for an airport stop but that's all, lacks character of other hotels.

      A dissapointment

      from

      We stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. What a dissapointment- it was classed as a 4 star hotel and was easily the worst quality room we had the entire trip, even though many of our hotels were classed as being lower. The room reminded me of a bad student dorm.

      The lobby is lovely however and the location is very convenient, but have stayed in other 2 star hotels in pisa (Di Stefano for example) which were far nicer.

      Poor Quality

      from

      We stayed at this hotel for one night in February 2004. The rooms were medium size but very clean. The location is superb and we were given a room with a view to the Leaning Tower. The breakfast was served in a banquet hall and was of very poor quality. The bread rolls were stale.

      Great location shame about the food.

      Perfectly located

      from

      I've just got back from a stay in this hotel (Jan 2004). If you're in Pisa just to sightsee, then this hotel is perfectly located - only a minute walk to the Leaning Tower, cathedral etc. The hotel itself isn't what I would class as 4 star, but having stayed in Italy several times before in '4 star hotels' I wasn't expecting anything better. On a down side, I did find my room very noisy and struggled to sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful and, if I were going for a short stay again, I would stay at this hotel again... but would definitely request a room further away from the road!

      Clean and friendly

      from

      A little tired and past its best but good value with helpful staff.

      Perfect location for tower and quality shopping. Excellant fish restaurant nearby was recommended by reception desk

      I got exactly what I paid for!

      from

      Not the most modern of hotels, past its prime but clean and tidy.

      Whilst there I didn't see another hotel that I would have preferred to stay in - they all seemed to a bit past it. Continental breakfast was fine and the staff were very helpful and recommended a good fish restaurant (Nando's - a 5 minute walk away - v.good). They even telephoned to check availibility of a table without being asked. As I said, not the best hotel I have stayed in even though it was rated as a 4 star but perhaps its different over there. I think I paid 61 for a double room for two with breakfast - you would expect to pay near that for a B&B in a tourist area. It wasn't priced as a 4 star in my opinion so what do you expect? Well located with a good view of the tower from the roof terrace.

      Great Hotel

      from

      I read your reviews of the HotelGrand Duomo with some anxiety, since I had already booked three nights there this August. However, we found it to be a clean, well-ordered hotel, in a superb location yards away from the Leaning Tower etc. Sure, it's past its prime, and in need of some refurbishment, but the staff were civil, the restaurant served delicious food and the bar and waiting staff were lovely. Don't be put off!

      Poor Quality

      from

      Fortunately we only had to spend one night here on a stopover to get to the airport. The decor was hideously seventies style. The room was poor - no actual curtains just plastic blinds which retracted to reveal a view of a brick wall! The room looked generally shabby with a pokey, grubby looking bathroom. It was supposed to be four stars so I would hate to think what the other hotels were like. Far too expensive for what it is, the only good thing being its proximity to the tower.

      4 Star Hotel???

      from

      I stayed at this hotel for one night about 2 weeks ago. All information told me this was a 4-star hotel - NOT EVEN CLOSE!! I work at a 4-star hotel and this hotel should not even rank 1-star. NONE of the staff spoke English and I can the best words I can use to describe them would be: rude, surley, totally unwilling to assist. Further, DON'T park a car there! They moved my rental car during the night and created a long (2 foot) scratch along the side and claimed absolutely no responsibility.

      The breakfast was served in a banquet hall and was unappetizing.

      The rooms were less than you would expect from Motel 6! They were clean, however very old and tired.

      My suggestion: stay at this hotel only as a last resort.

      ... looonnnggg day of traveling finally over.

      With this being such a power trip through Europe we do spend a lot of our time in train stations, but believe me, there is no better or cheaper way to do it. Hello Nice, can't wait to see what you have to offer in the daylight and thank you Pisa for the quick fly by opportunity. Only six nights left here... Wow it has gone fast, but cherished every moment.

      Just around the corner from this little square was the much bigger Piazza Napoleone (Napoleon had ruled over Lucca at one point), where a ...

      ... so glad I did because it was one of the coolest things I did. Because the tower leans so much, your whole center of gravity is thrown off when you are climbing up the spiral stairs. It was so hard to keep your balance, and at the top of the tower you can definitely feel that you are leaning. Also on the way back down, there is this weird effect when you are on the side that ...

      Guide books say the Piazza dei Miracoli (the Miracle Square) is arguably one of the most beautiful squares in the world, and it contains the cathedral, the baptistry and the Leaning Tower (Torre Pendante) which is actually a bell tower. The contrast between the whiteness of the buildings and the greenness of the law which you can't walk on any more is spectacular. It was raining so we went into the Cathedral ...
