    Great location


    Booked this hotel for myself and a group of 5 friends. Was really happy with location as it is 2 minutes from the tower and the sights. This hotel is classed as 4 star but I think it should be 3 star. Dated decor, like walking back in time to 1972!! despite this, we all thought the hotel had Italian hospitality and although the rooms were basic, they were cleaned every day and the drinks in the mini bar were cheap. Would stay there again.

    After we checked out and got to airport our flight was cancelled because of fog in Liverpool. I managed to get a cheap deal at another Hotel near the railway station. The Hotel Terminus and Plaza was a 4 star and it was reflected in its rooms. modern, nice bedding, double glazing and great breakfast room.Location was a 20 minute walk from the tower and in a more run down/grotty area, as it was next to the railway station. Both great value for money hotels. The Grand Duomo for its location and cheap mini bar and the terminus and plaza for quality and breakfast

    Unique Quality: Great views from the front facing rooms at the Grand Duomo. One of us had a single room in the back which had a lovely view of a wall and a cactus. Poor guy, never mind he got it cheap so what did he expect!!

    Directions: close to the leaning tower was the Grande duomo Hotel and the Hotel Terminus Plaza was by the railway station, beware of doggy poop on sidewalk when walking back to hotel at night!!

    If you dont want to walk far to see the sights


    This Hotel is so central and clean and has good staff and a good breakfast ( the orange juice is the best I have ever tasted) look out of your window you see the Leaning tower a view of the Eiful Tower from a french hotel puts ££££££ on top of the price

    Unique Quality: The bar is very large for a hotel bar the roof is a good place for photos the staff are very helpfull and the price was unbelievable booked through Expidia the airport is a 15 min taxi ride away and the trainstation is close you can get a bus to Florence about 1/2 an hour away

  • Good for the price


    I stayed two nights and found this hotel to be okay. I could see the Duomo, Tower, etc. from my bedroom window which was great. The room was small and old fashioned but the bathroom had obviously just been renovated and was great - bidet and power shower. As it was winter, the restaurant was closed so the only food I could get in the evening was a sandwich in the bar - the barman was really nice and spoke perfect English! I think 3 stars would be more suitable for this hotel.

    Unique Quality: Great view from some of the rooms and very convenient for the tower.

    Right in the heart of all


    In Via Santa Maria, about 150 Meters from the leaning tower. Good, old fashioned rooms and a excellent breakfast. The four stars are italian style - I say three are right.
    Absolutely price worth.
    By taxi/cab 10 Euros from airport.

    Directions: A walk from the tower

Poor hotel in good location

by TripAdvisor Member 99mrbenns

The Grand Hotel Duomo is in a great location literally 50yards from the leaning tower and duomo in Pisa.

The location is really the main selling point for this hotel. The hotel itself is rather shabby, dated and soulless. Our room was adequately equiped but one of the main reasons we picked this hotel was air conditioning as we visited in August. On arriving we found the air-con to be not working in our room. I asked reception to send someone to look at it but she forgot. I asked again as we left to do some sight seeing but on our return found she had again forgotten. Eventually we were moved to a new room, but the air-con was only marginally better in there.

We only stayed in the Duomo for one night. For a quick visit the hotel is adequate. The location is excellent, particularly considering the lack of anything of much interest away from the tower, it may become uncomfortable for a longer stay however.

Definately NOT recommended

by A TripAdvisor Member

Arrived in Pisa at the Grand Hotel Duomo and our stay was anything but grand. Our room was very disappointing and the only 4* thing about it was the fact that it had a mini bar(which was not cold and had no bottle opener therefore useless) The bed felt like it was going to collaspe, the wardrobe consisted of a rail in an alcove and the decor was shabby and far from tasteful. The room was very stuffy and warm and the shutters would not open therefore we could not cool it down. We requsted another room which was not a problem. The 2nd room appeared to be slightly better, the heating was still a problem but the shutters did open this time but with a nice view of a brick wall and the smell from the kitchens. As it was only one night decided to stay in this room and moved our baggage. On entering the bathroom we discovered it was fully equiped for the disabled with a high toilet etc and a fully open shower, which would of been great had we been disabled. The only good thing about this hotel was the location which was perfect for the sights of Pisa but 4* it definately is not, more like a shabby, 2*

Friendly hotel, very well situated.

Having read very bad reviews of this hotel after we had booked to stay, we were mightily impressed from the moment we walked through the doors. Our bedroom was large, clean and comfortable; the view from our window was stunning and the staff were friendly and helpful. It had everything we needed for a short stay. However, it was generally in need of refurbishment. I would stay there again.
