Room simple, but suitable. Conveniently close to the train and airport. Emilio at Reception was friendly helpful and considerate.
Just one item missing that I required - an iron.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Terminus & Plaza Pisa
Great base for visiting Tuscany!!
(Didn't know that this site existed until now!)
Visited Pisa for 3 days in March and had come across this hotel whilst searching on the internet. As it seemed quite central and reasonably priced we thought we'd give it a go - it was only for a few days.
However, I would go there again and again and emailed the hotel on our return to say so! It was a couple of minutes taxi ride from the airport - 3 of us and our luggage 6 euro - a bargain! The hotel itself was so central, it was unbelievable. The staff were extremely helpful, answering all queries promptly and with a smile (even by email before we arrived). The room was clean and well thought out, as were all public areas. Breakfast, which was included, was good - although had expected some cheeses and cold meat to be included but it was otherwise a good selection with fruit, yoghurts, pastries, breads, jams and fresh cappuccino! Nearby was a good selection of restaurants, trattorie and bars with well made traditional food at reasonable prices. We walked everywhere and it was well within easy walking distance of the Piazza dei Miracoli. The railway station and bus stops were just around the corner which makes it a great base for touring the area. On day 2 we took the train to Florence which was less than an hour away but there are so many places you can access from Pisa that you coud base yourself there for week or a fortnights stay and visit somewhere different every day. Therefore, the easy accessability to all transport links makes it an ideal place to stay when coming in at Pisa Airport. Such good prices for the accomodation, and eating out in general, made a visit to Pisa, (coupled with cheap flights by Ryanair) one of the cheapest Eurppean breaks we've had in years!! Oh and by the way - the shopping in the area was excellent!!
Like previous reviewers, we found the Terminus and Plaza to be an excellent hotel. Very bright and clean, good, efficient airconditioning and the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever slept in!! The breakfast was excellent, plenty of cereals, bread, meats, cheese, yogourts, fruit, fruit juice, coffee, tea etc and served in a bright airy breakfast room. Quiet location near the station with cheap and direct train services to the aiport and Florence and only a pleasant 20 minute walk to the leaning Tower and Duomo. I can thoroughly recommend this great value hotel.
Well surprised & pleased about our stay
Our stay 06th May - 09th May 2005
Let me say first off I was well pleased with this Hotel, having read the reviews & felt a bit weary I eventually booked because the hotel was near the train station. I wasn't disappointed in any way !!!!!!! The Hotel was 200 yards from the Train station in Pisa, the area it was in was 10mins walk to City Centre across the Arno. The hotel was very clean & tidy, the rooms a wee bitty tight but the beds & shower were fine. The inside of the hotel was very well kept & any visitor will not need worry about cleanliness. The decor was fine & the air con within the rooms was working away excellently.
This hotel was a great base me & the wife thought & very reasonably priced with a good breakfast facility. The usual coffee's, tea's bread croissants, cereals, Jams, pates, cheeses - really everything & more you would expect for an Italian breakfast.
The train service from Airport to Pisa central is fantastic (tickets bought at Info desk in airport, the train service from Pisa to surrounding areas is FANTASTIC compared with UK & very cheap. We went to Florence with no trouble at all & a very comfortable journey at that, we also went to Lucca which I recommend, a traditional italian town with great character & busy narrow street thoroughfares - an excellent little place with great culture & a true Italian feel to life. Florence - well what can you say ! AMAZING !
All in all I'd say the Hotel was an excellent base for seeing some of Tuscany & was exactly what we were looking for.
My first thoughts on Terminus E Plaza Hotel
Whilst I found the Hotel to be very comfortable. clean, average breakfast, although, some fresh meat and cheese would have gone down well, and in a very good location in being so close to the railway station and only about a 25min walk to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I regret to say that I did not find the member of staff on duty that day (Sun 24th April) very helpful. Everything I asked him appeared to be a chore and it seemed as though it was an effort to answer me. He didn't appear to have any inter-personal skills which is essential in this type of public service job and certainly didn't even smile once during my stay. No "Good Morning" when we went down to breakfast - nothing in fact - no conversation. I did ask if there was 'internet access' in the Hotel for guests and was abruptly told there wasn't and when I asked where the nearest 'Internet Cafe' might be, he apparently did not know and just stated "Near the Tower" - Which I found to be very strange, as when walking to the Tower discovered an Internet Cafe just literally 50 yds from the Hotel! (And yet your member of staff did not know this or if he did, certainly wasn't going to tell me!) However, that said, we had a brilliant short stay in Pisa - it was just a shame about the attitude of your staff.
Very good choice and value
Located near the train station, and on bus route from the airport. A 15-20 minute walk from the main site of Leaning Tower etc, over the river, but an interesting walk via the main shopping street.
Very modern facilities, clean and comfortable rooms at an economical price.
The breakfast buffet was outstanding. Not just usual rolls and coffee, but choice of juices, and ham and cheese buffet, yoghurts, fruit.
Not too much else of note in immediate area. A good trattoria up the street.
OK for one night
Booked into this hotel en route to Florence. Clean and basic accommodation - we landed at Pisa at 21:30 and needed somewhere near the station to stay overnight. No evening atmosphere, bar or food facilities as far as we could tell, even though a bar is advertised. No information from the staff about the surrounding locality of the hotel in terms of facilities. We found a bar round the corner (that was just closing) where we were able to buy some water etc.
Next morning, after an OK breakfast, the hotel were happy to look after our luggage whilst we walked to the Leaning Tower (which was about 10 - 15 minute walk). Didn't see any hotels in Pisa that looked good - wished we had gone straight to Florence but the Leaning Tower/Duomo were spectacular.
Stayed here for one night in August 2004. Close to the train station. Clean room and bathroom. I booked it mainly because of the quad room availability. Didn't stay for breakfast, so I can't comment on that. Good value for the money. I would stay there again.

Satisfied with our stroke of luck on scoring quick entry into both museums in Florence, we left town and made our way towards the coast. One of Italy's most iconic buildings was just an hour away. As we crested the hills before the coastal valley we could already make out the outline of a tower on the horizon. Even a few miles away the ...
... the wait would have been long and too long for our crew. I'm glad I made the purchase.
The tower is very ornate, wedding-cake like, but the climb us not hard at all. When it was finished in the 1300's, it must have been an imposing site, and climbers must have felt like they were on the top of the world. In today's world, though, the novelty is restricted to the lean, of which there ...
... Had one of the most amazing lunches at this little cafe. Had the Margarita pizza and shared the pasta del carbonara . . . It put the A in Amazing!! Still thinking and drooling about how good it tasted!! We then hit up the local shops and I found these amazing leather masks a local Florencian made. Wish we had more time in Florence, but we had to head out to Rome, I will definitely be taking a trip back to ...
... allows natives to walk and jog. As we rode along the path, the cool breeze provided a sense of relief and relaxation, unlike any other. The atmosphere of Lucca was crisp, dry, and clean, to say the least. It was an unforgettable experience and will be an event that I eventually return to in the future.
We then rode the bikes around the actual city of Lucca, passing several other native bikers (many Luccians travel by bike). We passed through the piazzas and ...
... a large display of old time photos attached to the wall and I’ve taken a shot of one photo that looks remarkably like ‘me’ when I was about 3 year sold…. See what mum and dad think.
Good night all….
