The hotel did arrive a driver to transport us from the Airport, but I was surprised when we arrived at the hotel in a pretty run down area. As for the hotel, it's large and does look grand downstairs in the hall/lobby area. There's an Olympic sized pool inside which is good to test yourself on if you're a keen swimmer, there's also a beach nearby which is nice for its proximity. It's not very scenic though and is crammed full of deckchairs and people. You're not allowed to play ball games but the sea is pretty good to swim in. The rooms are poor, the furniture is outdated the rooms are boring, there is a minibar (with no alcohol in it) but there's no tea and coffee in the room! My bathroom was modern but was the only part of it that was, there is on a clear day a nice view of the mountains if you're lucky enough to get a room away from the main road, but the view toward the pool is not too pleasant. When there's bad weather you can only get a coffee from the bar (and you have to request a member of staff to go to the bar from reception as the whole hotel is understaffed), but you will have to sit there in eerie silence in absolute boredom. So when the weather is bad and the beach and pool are off, there's literally nothing to do it was incredibly boring here. If you choose to explore the area its slightly run down and there's not much to do. There's an ok beach bar and there are cafe/bars around, but nearly all of them are very average looking. There's an ok park to walk in and that's it! We came here in September and the water park and fairground just around the corner were closed!!! They did have a good piano player in the bar one night, our LAST night here however. The rest of the week there was only muted jazz music in a tiny bar. The one good thing is the bus at the end of the hotel that goes to Pisa so you can see the leaning tower etc, that could take up perhaps 1 day maximum. Back to the hotel, the breakfast is pretty decent and has decent variety, it's nothing spectacular but it is fine. In the evenings the set menu comes in small portions, and the food is very average even though the staff are friendly. One day I had shrimp off the a la carte menu and i was treated to a massive plate! The food was much better than the set menu! Overall calling this a 4 star hotel is a joke, it's far too run down for that in parts, and it isn't really the hotels fault but the area is extremely boring. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else.

Dear Guest, we have read your review and your opinion carefully. We are very sorry not to have left a good memory during your holiday in Tirrenia. Tirrenia is a very popular seaside tourist resort and very popular with Italian and foreign tourists, for its wide beaches, for the beautiful equipped bathing establishments, for the clean sea, for the pine forest, ideal for cycling and for tranquility. Unfortunately, for the 2020 season the entertainment in the hotel and outside has undergone reductions or cancellations to avoid crowds, see Luna Park. We allow ourselves to say that in case of bad weather, every evaluation is negatively influenced, especially when we are in a seaside resort; we point out that Tirrenia offers excellent alternatives where to spend time: 20 minutes by car from Piazza dei Miracoli and Leaning Tower, Florence and Lucca are 1 hour away by car, with architectural beauties and museums. The Cafes at disposal of our guests are two, open every day; one of this is open from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm by the beach restaurant and the American Bar of the hotel is open starting from 2.00 pm to midnight. For those who wish a coffee or a drink at American bar in the morning, the Reception staff calls a waiter from the breakfast room, close by. The cuisine of the beach Restaurant is very appreciated for the taste and the varity of the menu choice, we regret, you did not appreciate it completely. The rooms were renovated recently, all of them with new floors, some of them with renovated bathrooms. In addition, for next winter, when the flow of tourists will drop, our Management plans to start the room renovations. We are happy that you found our staff polite and friendly. Remaining at your disposal for any further informations , we send you best regards. The Hotel management

The hotel as such looks a bit outdated in some area's. The room is clean itself, bathroom not too big although we had room with a renovated bathroom, so fine as such. The hotel gives you a ticket to park outside for the whole of your stay, this of course avoid paying parking outside. The restaurant in the hotel itself was closed due to Corona. You need to go to a beach restaurant nearby. I am sorry to say but this was really below my standard. The food was eatable, but no sophistication what so ever. Sometimes misses basic stuff, like some seasoning. Hence we went out a couple of times to have dinner outside although we had half board.

Dear Guest we thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Tirrenia and we thank you also for your compliments. The beach restaurant provides open air dining rooms, terrace overlooking the sea and large spaces, for this reason many appreciated, as well as for the service and the quality of the food choice. At the end of the summer, the beach restaurant will be closed and we will return to normal and customary service standards. We hope to welcome you again in our hotel. The Hotel Management

I stayed in this hotel for one week and had a very good time. The highlight is without doubt the Olympic-size swimming pool, but equally the hotel itself is decent and efficient. Key aspects of my stay are recorded as follows: * Large hotel with decent amenities and good standards of cleanliness and efficiency throughout. * Excellent swimming pool, kept immaculately clean by full-time pool attendant. * Very good and varied food on half-board. * Excellent beach adjoining the hotel grounds and managed by the hotel, with dedicated seating for free use of hotel residents. * Efficient bus route into Pisa city centre from outside the hotel. * Very pleasant surrounding area. I had noted that some reviews stated that this hotel was dated, but I would not specifically agree. Rather, the lobby was contemporary with beautiful marble finishes and tasteful design. The breakfast room had recently been renovated and equally was tastefully-done. Accommodation at the hotel is essentially comprised of two parallel blocks. I stayed in the block nearest to the swimming pool and this was very much up to date in its décor. The other block has an older interior, but likely this will be updated in due course. Without hesitation I would stay at this hotel again and had an excellent time.

Wow what a run down hotel. I wish I could stay someplace else so bad. There are no plugins for electronics except one behind the dresser that is crowded by the tv plug. There is a lot to be desired here. Lots of stains here. Elevators don’t really work as well from certain floors. Not sure what’s up with that. Haven’t had breakfast yet but now after seeing the room I don’t expect much. This reminds me of a run down motel 6 charging high rates because it’s sitting next to the beach. Avoid if you are lucky.

Dear Guest we are very sorry for your comment after your stay in our hotel. The hotel has 175 rooms with socket to charge below the desk. We pay great attention to the cleanliness of the rooms and places in common and there are no stains. The management of the hotel has embarked on a process of renovation, renovating the swimming pool, the buffet restaurant, renewing the bathroom in 60 rooms, replacing the carpet in the hall and there are no stains. the 4 hotel lifts are periodically checked by the inspection bodies, as per the legislative regulation. Shortly the breakfast room will have a new station, bright and large, where will be served a rich buffet with a wide choice to satisfy all guests. We would be happy to have you back among us to discover the good things we offer our guests. The Hotel Management

We returned to the Hotel Continental and found it little changed from the previous year. The staff are helpful. The lobby is fine but the guest room, although perfectly clean is really dated. The furniture hasn't changed in at least the 40 years I've been coming to this hotel. Even the hair dryers in the bathrooms are something from the past-with a wide hose carrying the hot air to its destination. The shower and bathroom fixtures are dated also. The breakfast buffet is well stocked with a good variety of foods. There are plenty of tables to sit even when there are bus loads of tourists all eating at once (but not this trip in October). The hotel has a great location-a few steps from the beach and there is a large outdoor pool. The room charge is quite moderate. There should be more management attention to detail in the lobby as evidenced by a cracked glass table top and an information news bulletin board where local news updates are posted, BUT the one page news "updates" we saw were more than two years old! It does not take a large renovation budget to correct these two items. But for location in Tirrenia you can't beat the Grand Hotel Continental.
