Pensione Week-End

Reviewed 22 June 2016

A lovely budget family run pensione.
The Italian owners are extremely welcoming and speak and correspond in perfect English.
The location is great with free parking almost opposite and a loading bay for luggage drop off and pickup.

Our room, no 19, reached from the third floor up and narrow staircase to the roof was excellent. Loads of storage and an enormous roof terrace with commanding views on and off shore in to the bay and harbour.views.

We stayed a week with the race crew during the regatta. Hopefully we will book again for next year.

Breakfast is typically basic but the coffee is good.

There's a sheltered patio garden with seating at the ground level entrance also.

Wifi repeated to every floor, strong signal.

Room Tip: If you have the legs, room 19 with the roof terrace

We stayed here for two nights in September. We stayed in the rooftop room with the private terrace and my review is based on that room only. If we hadn't been able to get that room we may have stayed elsewhere.....the staff was friendly, there is a temporary spot out front to unload your car then they direct you to free overnight parking (down a hill but not too bad of a walk). The staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations (Lo Sfizio!!!!!) and even chilled a bottle of champagne we had with us. Breakfast was about norm for Italy.

CLOSE to everything, we parked car and walked everywhere in town (COOP is probably a little far to walk but that was about it). Lots of great restaurants in walking distance, and walking along the water was nice. It was super windy when we were there and apparently unseasonably warm. The rooms have air-con though.

The view from the private terrace was amazing. We sat up there and read/relaxed/etc. Nice breeze and views of water. BUT, the hotel has no lift and this room is up four flights, The last flight being very narrow. Im 6' tall and average size and my shoulders brushed walls on last flight. We combined into one bag so to only have to carry one bag up. The halls/stairs have no air con so it was a bit steamy up and down. But once there it was a nice room. Great shower pressure!

2 nights in PSS was probably a little too long due to fact the wind precluded us from doing the beach scene and my wife didnt want to try ferry to Giglio (we later saw it crossing and looked very rough due to winds/seas). But it was a nice break between Tuscan hill towns and before heading back to Rome.

Room Tip: Rooftop room was great, others maybe good value but lose views.

We spent a night in Porto S. Stefano as part of our trip through Tuscany, and decided on Pensione Week End based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. Roberto was very welcoming and helpful when we first arrived, and directed us to the nearest public car park, which was a short walk from the hotel (and free). We were shown to our room on the second floor (no lift, which isn’t a problem). The rooms were very simple, but clean and tidy and exactly what you would expect in this price range. We had booked the economy room which didn’t have sea views, and instead looked out over the residential area to the rear of the block, not that this was a problem. Breakfast the next day was the standard European faire, but was good none the less. The location of the hotel is excellent, and a short walk from the wharf with all its tratorrias and restaurants, with one of the cheapest ‘bars’ we found all holiday. The town itself is amazing, it was the most relaxed a felt all holiday and had such a great atmosphere. Swimming beaches are a short drive away, but everything else is nearby. I would stay here again for sure!

We liked Porto Santo Stefano so much that we came back for more. Both times we stayed at the Pensione Week-End.
The Pensione offers very good value for money. The rooms are small but reasonably priced and have plenty of storage space and small comforts like a small clothes line to hang your wet bathers out to dry. The owners are very friendly and happy to assist with finding a lovely beach or a good restaurant.
However, you need to be prepared to climb the stairs because there is no lift.
