    Hotel Galilei Our stay at Hotel Galilei was for one night only. The staff were very good. However, we felt the hotel was dated and not up to the usual for a 4 star. It is very convenient for the airport though - which was one of the reasons for booking it.

    Hotel Galilei 1 km from Galileo Airport so ideal for an overnight stay before moving on. We would use this hotel again (as we have with the Golden Tulip at Roma Fuimincino) to get out of the airport and into a comfortable hotel with a restaurant for a late meal as quickly as possible. Staff are courteous and friendly and provide all you would expect from what is a typical one night stay airport hotel.

    Hotel Galilei Other than the overall experience (over three different stays in two weeks), the outstanding "aspect" was the front desk employee. He went out of his way to accommodate us in the stay itself as well as the transportation requirements we had. Our first stay was selected for convenience (near the airport), but our next two stays were because of the staff. If we're ever in the Pisa area again, it will definitely include a stay at Golden Tulip. Thank you very much, Lawrence and Sheryl Julian Honolulu, Hawaii

    Hotel Galilei I had reserved a twin bedded room but arrived to find a double bed. I asked at reception for this to be changed and was told there were no rooms available with two beds. At check out I suggested that a reduction might be made because of the mistake and was firstly told that I could have asked for the room to be changed the previous evening (it was the same receptionist!). No reduction was made. Poor service in my view. Overall, the hotel is very convenient for the airport, clean, fairly reasonably priced but lacking in any atmosphere and with unhelpful staff.

The free shuttle service back to the airport was also very useful as we arrived to Pisa at almost midnight and it meant that we could go directly to the hotel and then collect the hired car from the airport the following morning.

    Hotel Galilei we ordered a bottle of wine at 9 euros and asked for 5 glasses. the barman poured the five drinks and then told us it would be 3 euros each as he called the drink an aperatif as we had it before eating in the restaurant. this was unreasonable and spoilt our evening. it was only a matter of 6 euros but it was the pricipal. the menu stated clearly 9 euros a bottle and the barman was adamant that we should pay per glass. When 5 of us sat down and ordered another bottle of the same wine at the same price we were only charged 9 euros. it was a matter of trying to rip us off in the bar. Shame.

Better restaurants away from the tower if you head into the city which is down the road behind the tower (all the way) and turn right. Front desk ordered us a taxi for 6:30am flight which worked fine. There were some pastries & coffee available which was good as we left at 5am before the regular buffet breakfast kicked off.

    Hotel Galilei 1) The temperature of the shower was constantly going up and down (cold and very hot!) 2) The aircondition was very loud (room itself and bed were oke!) 3) There was no restaurant open, only the small eatcafe. Was not clear when we arrived so when we wanted to have dinner the eatcafe was full and a lot o peaple were waiting. So or we had to wait, or take a taxi back to the city (what we did) If we should have known we should have stayed in Pisatown, had diner and then to the hotel! When above points shouldn't have been there the points would have been between 8 and 10 overall.

    Hotel Galilei The building & decor was fine, however the air conditioning in the room did not work & it took in excess of one hour for the hotel to agree to change our room. Furthermore the original room had not only had smokers in it but they had burned a hloe in the curtain It was extremely difficult to find from the airport. The restaurant facilities were poor. The Mini bus to the airport was very poor departing from the hotel 20 minutes LATER than booked.. All in all agood structure with pathetic organisation & service

    Hotel Galilei Hotel was not very clean. There is nothing nearby the hotel and no shuttle offered to take you to the city of Pisa. Shuttle pick-up from the airport not very organized, we waited long after the scheduled pick-up and after we got to the hotel we were told there was a charge. No shuttle service to the airport in the morning because our flight was too early. Taxi charged us 15 Euro for the short ride to the airport so no point in staying in this area to be close. The saving in hotel rate was spent on transportation. Restaurant was not open the night we were there, and the only thing offered was a BBQ for 15Euro per person. The BBQ was not worth the money, meat not cooked... but due to location of hotel, you had no other options for dinner without taking a taxi. The positive, the staff was overall very helpful and friendly.

    Hotel Galilei It would be helpful to provide some written instructions on the website, that can be printed off, on how to get to the hotel from the car rental car park of the airport. The hotel is very close to the airport but the road signs don't make it easy to get there! we had to travel all around Pisa to find it which defeated the purpose of booking a hotel so close to the airport.

    Hotel Galilei I was very pleased overall with the cleanliness and appointments of the room and the hotel. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. I did have one problem. The room was too hot and there was no way to regulate it down. I called the front desk twice to complain. They said they could lower the temp from there, but all that happened was that my power went off repeatedly. I gave up on it and found that although the windows were supposed to be able to be opened, mine did not. I had to take a taxi from the airport because the shuttle did not run from 11 to 4. Why not? The morning shuttle was perfectly fine.

    Hotel Galilei The staff assured us there were some english channels on the tv, but they would not work in our room and after repeated inquiries and pat assurances, the problem was ignored completely by the front desk staff. Also the lighter fare restaurant is not connected to the hotel except by a bar, which meant going out in pouring rain to the next door to grab a sandwich. And the courtesy bus to the airport, for which I chose the hotel, does not run until 6:30AM, leaving early travelers with the only option being a cab.

    Hotel Galilei The most disappointing thing about the hotel was the relatively unfriendly/unhelpful attitude of the staff - particularly in the restaurant. We only stayed for one night - and so were pretty much forced to eat in the restaurant. The food was not great and combined with the unfriendly staff did not make it a great experience. I would never recommend anyone to stay for more than one night. In the vicinity of the restaurant there was a terrible smell (bad drains) which was somewhat offputting. It was probably caused by the products used to clean the leather sofas.

THis made it a bit difficult as our flight arrived at 11pm and there was a taxi strike. While they do provide a shuttle bus to and from Pisa and the airport, it must be reserved ahead of time. On the good side, they have a wonderful breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay here again.

I rang the hotel and was told that there would be no problem in checking-in after midnight, if necessary. I met another traveller fron Dublin who had also contacted the hotel on the same matter.

The hotel is good value for money, even if you have to factor in taxi fares. Perhaps a more frequent shuttle bus service or at least in the mornings/during several flight departures given that it is all most impossible to get a taxi in Pisa between 9am and 11am, when most people are checking out to get flights or trains.

    By car you can reach the hotel extremely quickly: from the Pisa centro motorway A12 exit by following the road for Pisa/Firenze and exiting at Darsena Pisana.

    By plane and train, taxi is outside the airport and station.

    “Our stay at Hotel Galilei was for one night only. The staff were very good. However, we felt the hotel was dated and not up to the usual for a 4 star. It is very convenient for the airport though - which was one of the reasons for booking it.„
