Historical Traveler Reviews Leonardo Hotel Pisa
Traditional Hotel, Rooms basic but clean, breakfast was good, and centrally located, good value. Helpful & friendly staff, who spoke good english.
Nice hotel with friendly staff. Very good position in old town of Pisa and near shops & tower. Other side of river to trains & buses but ok to walk to them. Breakfast basic but ok and room a little small but again clean & ok.
Perfect quiet but central location, friendly staff
If you're visiting Tuscany and want to be based in a quiet, non-touristy part of Pisa, yet only a short walk away from the fabulous Piazzas Miracoli and Cavaliere, Hotel Leonardo is ideal. Located in a quiet cobbled street in the mediaeval centre of the town, there are several great and good value restaurants close by where the locals eat. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and comfortable, the view was wonderful (rooftops, mountains in the distance) and the bath towels were big and fluffy. The breakfast was good and the rolls and pastries freshly baked and hot every day. The decor was in good order (though the murals are not to everyone's taste!) The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel is reputed to have been Galileo's laboratory which added a historical frisson to the experience. Altogether highly recommended.
Traditional, nice, recommend
having lived in italy for a number of years, stayed in hotels from 1 star to 4 stars, this was a worthy 3 star hotel. not sure what people expect from Italian hotels, reading the last review. It is well located, fridge in room, good A/C, friendly staff, clean room, what more could you ask for. I will definately stay again, good restraunts in the area, be brave and wander all the little side streets and alleys near, take a step back in time. We found very nice pizzeria's and restaraunts this way. can't wait to go back.
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is located in an area that could not be more italian. Looking out of the windows takes you into a different world. Everywhere there are elderly Italians sitting on old chairs chatting while waiting until the sun goes down. It is a very pretty city. The staff at the Leonardo were very helpful, our room was neat and clean. I can't say much more than that we enjoyed our stay very much and for me it is more important to leave the place with a satisfied feeling than thinking about the small variety of a breakfast... One should not hold onto small mistakes that such a place has regarding the price that was paid.
Happy to have stayed here
We stayed here in the Spring of 2002.
We drove into Pisa early in the night without a room or a clue where to stay. We happened upon the Hotel Leonardo and were quite pleased.
The service was extremely pleasant and helpful. The night desk employee parked our car in an alley somewhere and quickly gave us an overview of the neighborhood. We found a great little restuarant filled with locals celebrating a birthday.
The accomodations were clean and not too small. That's the best I can say about the rooms. But for $88, we were happy.
The Leaning Tower is only a short stroll away.
Unlikely that we would stay again
We travelled though Europe for 6 weeks and visited the Hotel Leonardo during the middle of our holiday. We would probably rank at the lower end of the scale - the interior finish was pretty tacky however the hotel was clean. Breakfast was really average with a little variety. Staff were really helpful. Room did not have safe - something which we found in all other hotels that we stayed at. Unlikely that we would stay again.

... edge. Grant practically ran up the 296 steps to the top (56m above ground) but Corri found the lean a bit hard to digest - she seemed to suffer seasickness from the way the walls and stairs tilted as you wound around the inside of the tower. You emerge at the last but one tier, then go up a separate staircase to the very top. Once there, you can walk around the platform and step inside the ...
... She is an Aussie/Greek who came here 4 years ago,.. fell in love with the place,.. and stayed. She lives 50 metres from the shop (in a town the size of the MCG,.. nothing is too far away),.. and we spent a half hour talking with her about her experiences and life here,.. Ohh, yes,.. and we bought a lovely pair of pearl earrings,.. just to support our new mate! Lunch back at the Motorhome, and a return walk to town around 5.00pm for the festival proper. ...
... are, in the pouring rain with this now whole family that I think is stupid, arguing about going up the tower with minus one ticket. Stupid man, the ticket box is open, no one is there cos its pouring, we are all getting wet, F... OFF . The tower lady was cross too. She told him three times to bugger off.
Ok winging over.
We all know about the leaning tower. I grew up with it in bugs bunny cartoons, and I guess Homer Simpson has had a go of ...
... Pendente is and we were no different, but Pisa is more than just The Leaning Tower. The station is on the south of the centre and The Campo is on the north but the walk only takes about 20 minutes if you don't stop at a bar for coffee and eats. Between the two points there are plenty of small piazzas worth a detour which we duly did in both directions.
We'd both been before, albeit a few years ago, but when you walk round the corner and see The Tower ...
... tower up. There were a hundred people doing exactly the same. When we were waiting for our turn Niomi noticed a asian girl posing for the camera. She was wearing yellow trousers and lets use say we could tell it was that time of the month. When Niomi told me I was nearly sick. I wish she never told me, but I was more shocked at her friends for not telling her and covering it up
We got talking to a nice girl from England who was travelling on her own so she ...
