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.

... both of us groaning over the deliciousness of the fresh ripe tomatoes, olive oil and herbs, now the taste buds are ready for the next dish, we both ordered a pizza, and yesssss, finally a really awesome genuine Italian pizza. They were both delicious, phew, faith restored. We had the 3 P's Pisa, Peroni and Pizza, how good is life??
Time to hit the path and walk off that amazing lunch, we headed back to the Tower for another walk around, a couple of photos and ...
... had to do something with this train I was on and so asked my co passenger to translate. He sighed and said that the train was delayed by half hour :-( What was a waste of energy to have run. We could have peacefully finished our dinner. Anyway....I did not wait any further. I decided to eat. It was so yummy and especially the Aranchini that I decided to call Amma and tell her that we must try it some day. Oh yea I knew Amma would be awake.
... obligatory holding up/pushing down pictures and even getting an admonishment from the authorities for being on the grass. The tower was busy but we soon lost the crowds as we headed into Pisa itself for a look see. The town is certainly worth a wander and we stopped for some huge ice creams along the way before heading back to grab a sandwich in the madness and then to the campsite for our last night in ...
... a bit. The lean is unsettling until you get to the top to see the views of Pisa and the surrounding area (which is amazing), then stays with you after you finish the climb. All in all, well worth the visit for the view alone. The cathedral was intriguing in it's antiquity, and the kids appreciated seeing a church (for the first time, maybe ever). Many pieces of art on the walls and ceilings, too ...
... one of the restaurants he had picked and we were so happy we did.
When we arrived, we were brought two complimentary glasses of champagne because we were guests at Hotel Dali. We ordered bruschetta mista as our antipasti (mista means mixed – so different types of bruschetta). I’ve discovered it’s one of my favorite things to eat and I really like getting the mista because it means you’ve always got a varied selection ...
