This hotel was good, the staff wonderful especially Nacizio ( sorry if I misspell). Good central location, we could walk every where, air conditioning ( it wasn't like our a/c but we have done with less) and wifi EVERYWHERE!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Verdi Pisa
Served its purpose
Stayed in family room with one other couple. Good location within walking distance (10 mins) of Tower. V. noisy night to band playing in next door church the night we stayed. Breakfast was good. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The 2nd double bed was a sofa bed though. Good value for money.
After 12 days backpacking/camping across tuscany i checked into Verdi for 2 nights before flying home to the UK. A phone call to the hotel (after plucking the number from the Lonely Planet guidebook) put me through to a helpful young guy with better English than my Italian who gave me good directions and information.
The Hotel looked great on arrival, a corner block pallazi with wooden shutters in a quiet square lined with the usual mopeds and tiny cars. the same guy on reception was polite and welcoming which was a relief given my appearance (bug bitten and lugging a backpack) and handing over a weighty key directed me to my room.
The single room was tiny but very clean, warm and traditionally decorated. Warm yellow walls, an old, large wooden wardrobe and a shuttered view into the square below. the bathroom was super clean, modern with a large walk in power-shower. Satellite tv and a very comfy bed made my last 2 nights in Italy bliss.
Ambling distance from plenty of shopping and trattoria and a bus ride from the plaza de miracales, i'd recommend this little gem to all visitors to Pisa.
Great hotel in a quiet location
This hotel wasn't in the center of Pisa, but it was a safe quiet location and well within walking distance of all of the sights of Pisa.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, and their English was good enough for us to get information about sights, trains, and restaurants. Everything went smoothly; the bathroom was a bit small, but clean and with good water pressure. We had an ugly view of an interior courtyard, but the room was bright and clean. In all, a wonderful stay.
Hotel Verdi is a great deal!
I travel to Italy quite frequently. I stayed at Hotel Verdi for most of summer 2000. I't s fine hotel for the money. The people are wonderful and very heplful. They'll make you feel at home. Parking is tight all over Pisa, but you can find parking. Hotel Verdi is very near Teatro Verdi. Pisa is a great town...I spent 2 summers there. A great inexpensive "home base" for exploring all of Tuscany. Tell the people at Verdi that Lou the trumpet player from Philly sent you!!!

... Something we noticed European campsites are lacking is picnic tables, or a communal space for tenters to cook, eat, sit, visit.... This topic launched us into a discussion of the differences we noticed between North American camping and European camping - a big topic. North America is all about the BBQs, booze, music, and noise... Here it is the opposite, each site it a quite party of 2 that keep to themselves...they sit sharing a bottle ...
Today we took a leisurely drive to Pisa. Of course the feature that we were going to see was the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Despite the heat and the crowds, we enjoyed seeing this building and it was worth the trip.
Back 'home' to cool off in the pool.
This evening we were invited to Andrea and Claudia's villa for a guided tour. Andrea and Claudia own and run our accommodation and the land has been in Claudia's family ...
... lunch at a small cafe across from the field, we purchased entrance tickets, and began our self-guided tour by visiting the Camposanto cemetery that borders the field on the northern side. This site has been a cemetery since the 12th-century, and is enclosed in a long white building with a cloistered interior courtyard. The marble floors of the arcade are filled covered with markers, many of them quite elaborate, indicating the names of the dead and departed whose remains ...
... tower of Pisa in real life was so much more spectacular than I had imagined it would be.
We bought tickets to go up the leaning tower. They only allow 40 people to go up the tower at one time. We bought the 3rd and 2nd to last tickets of the day. The last tour started at 8:00 pm. While we waited for 8:00 pm to roll around, we took photos of the tower and we visited the nearby Duomo Cathedral and Camposanto Cemetery.
