we loved staying at hotel riviera blu. i would definitely return. the front desk person was extremely helpful -- my son unexpectedly needed a place to stay and the front desk person found him a place to stay nearby since the hotel riviera blu was booked. our room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was fresh and inviting, and the free breakfast […] was amazing. we had stayed other places in europe where the breakfast (not free) consisted mainly of baked goods. while hotel riviera blu offered plenty of pastries and other baked things, they also served hard boiled eggs, fresh tomatoes, delicious cheeses and a variety of meats which i did not try as i am veggie and gluten free. overall, we were extremely happy with out stay here. also. the public beach across the street was great.

"Lovely beachside stay"
We were only there for a couple of days but it was well worth it. The staff were helpful and friendly, breakfast was well worth it and the position of the hotel itself across from a beautiful Italian beach was great .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5min stroll to beach, parking, very clean"
We had a room with a balcony to sit out on at night. The staff were very accommodating and speak English. The whole hotel was extremely clean, whenever we passed through somebody was cleaning something and there was never a bit of sand in our room or anywhere else despite close proximity to the beach. The hotel is on a strip between the centres of Tirrenia […] and Marina Di Pisa, with Tirennias restaurants and bars a 25 min stroll. Marina Di Pisa is a little further.

L'albergo è grazioso, pulitissimo, tenuto bene ed accogliente. Ottime le calde brioches a colazione. Titolari e personale molto gentili.

Lo consiglio vivamente e ne conservo un bel ricordo.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Udmærket sted hvis man har bil med"
Vi brugte hotellet på vores sidste overnatning inden vi rejste hjem fra Toscana. Vi var meget tilfredse med opholdet. Værelset har en passende størrelse er og rent og velholdt. Servicen var rigtig fin på hotellet. Hotellets placering er nogle kilometer fra Pisa, så hvis man booker hotellet skal man have en bil, så man let kan transportere sig frem og […] tilbage.

Lenger fra havet enn en kan få inntrykk av. Ligger litt i "ingenmannsland" Ikke offentlig strand, noe som var veldig uventet. Trivelig og hjelpsomt personaleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Mycket bra. Mycket service inriktad personal som hjälpte till med att boka bord på bra restauranger. Rent och snyggt. Nära stranden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Detta hotell var över förväntningarna! Litet, mysigt familjeägt, där man verkligen känner sig välkommen! Nära till havet, buss 100 m för att komma till Pisa elller Livorno. Därifrån kan man ta sig med tåg vidare till t ex Florens för överkomligt pris.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent service, cleanliness, location"
08/05/14 AK_travelerAnchorage Anchorage
Husband and I stayed one night in June 2014 in a third floor double with private bath facing the street. Yes, room was very small, but it was spotlessly clean, and there was a refrigerator. Front desk and breakfast staff gave excellent service, with helpful information on nearby restaurants and bus stops. Breakfast was excellent, with meats, cheeses, croissants, yogurts, fruits, and cappuccinos, all in a very pleasant setting. The beach club associated with the hotel was wonderful, also with excellent customer service, changing rooms, showers, cafe, and, oh yes, warm ocean water for bathing. All this for an excellent price, even in mid-summer.
"Exceptionally clean & friendly"
07/18/14 Thomas D San Bruno, California
We stayed at Riviera Blu across from many beach amenities and close to lovely and interesting Pisa. The property was of a high caliber and meticulously clean. The rooms and baths were spacious and most comfortable. We especially enjoyed breakfast in a charming dining room where the bread and meats were so appetizing and fresh. Our vehicle from Hertz Italia was negligently not filled with petrol. The owner of the Hotel Blu came out and took a photo of the petrol gauge to show that we had just received it empty and only barely made it to the hotel. He then sent this photo to the airport Hertz to a friend that he knew. The place just has a nice feel about it. Many thanks, we will come again. Tom & Nuala D.
"Very clean and nice Hotel near the Beach"
07/10/14 Doe1967 Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands
This Hotel is very nice. Absolutely spotless when it comes to cleanliness. The owner and his son are friend;y and very helpful. It is close to the Beach and center of Tirrenia. You can use a bike from the Hotel and that is very nice.
"Great for a three day chill out before flying home from Pisa."
06/29/14 Antonio D
After touring the usual Northern cities it was lovely to use this wee hotel for a chill out by the Med. The three of us ( husband, wife and 21 year old son) thought that this cheap hotel fitted the bill perfectly. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, bar prices were very acceptable e.g. brandy, Laphroaig and a cappuccino 8.50 euros., and breakfast was also very good with endless coffee and reasonable selection of meats and sweets etc The hotel is opposite numerous bagnos across the road. The owners had used all the space available on a small site to provide parking, outside tables and a small bar and lounge area. The real plus is that every area is spotlessly clean and tidy. The air conditioning was effective and most importantly quiet!
"Pleasant family-run hotel"
06/12/14 David S London, United Kingdom
This hotel is located on the coast road just North of Tirrenia. It is surrounded by its own small but well maintained garden and other large private properties. If you are looking for sea views you will be disappointed. The road itself is quite noisy during the day but reasonably quiet at night. Opposite are a series of entrances to different privately owned beach facilities. At the nearest (Paradiso), hotel guests can enjoy a 16% discount on food and beverages if they present a discount card available from the hotel reception. The rooms are relatively basic and the bathroom facilities a little dated but, as other reviews mention, the hotel really is spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent: plenty of choice in a spacious dining room (which unusually has a table pre-allocated for each room). The hotel was notably quiet with only a few rooms occupied when we stayed (midweek in early June). Other guests seemed to be business travellers more than tourists. The beach was also pretty much deserted (but covered with many thousands of parasols). I guess a weekend in July/ August would be an entirely different experience!
"Great place for young families wanting to chill"
04/19/14 Craig R Oxford, United Kingdom
For us, this location was perfect at the end of a trip in which we'd already visited Venice and Florence. Here we wanted to see the Leaning Tower and just chill on the beach with young (teenage) kids. Less touristy, the bus was right outside the hotel, the beach a short walk. Owners really helpful - a family-run place, and they looked after us great. Lent us bikes to ride into Tirrenia for meals, very approachable. Facilities immaculately clean. No complaints.
"Far from Pisa"
03/27/14 Sazen Montpellier
This hotel is 12km from Pisa. We booked it believing it was in Pisa, or in a close-by surburban zone, and made the mistake of not checking on the map to find out exactly where it was. Our bad. The proprietor refused to cancel our booking so we were obliged to stay or lose 50Eur. That said, this is a very basic hotel. Our room was so small, if you put your bag on the floor you could no longer get round the bed, if you open the bathroom door, you could no longer get round the bed... you get the idea. The bathroom was clean but the towels were those Italian table cloths and tea towels. Not that pleasant when you come out of the shower really. There was no restaurant available for the evening. We had wanted to eat out in Pisa, but being on a motorbike, we didn't want to trek back 12km into town along unlit country roads in the chilly winter weather. We were recommended somewhere a good walk away which turned out to be excellent. The only excellent point of our stay in fact. The breakfast was extra, and definitely average, made up of industrial pastries with a platter of meat and cheese, and yoghurt. It wasn't so cheap that it didn't matter. At 62Eur without breakfast, it was definitely overpriced, especially out of season.
"better than most"
10/31/13 aguamaul Arcugnano, Italy
We stayed here only because we were coming in from out of town for a dinner at a restaurant in the center of Tirrenia which worked out to be about 1600 meters down the road. Do NOT stay here if you think this is Pisa. I haven't figured out why their web page has pictures of the Tuscan countryside and the leaning tower. You are at least a 15 minute drive to central Pisa. This hotel is perfect for access to the beaches which are directly across the street. Also perfect for avoiding the noise in central Tirrenia, as this hotel is a bit removed from the party atmosphere in the summer, and the cluster of restaurants. Rooms are comfortable and clean with big windows and shutters that can block out all the light if necessary. Color scheme is blue, which I suppose goes with the name. Bathrooms are spartan, but have everything you need. This isn't a design hotel with posh euro furnishings. You'll get a clean comfortable room and a good night's sleep, which is exactly what we were expecting, and what we paid for. We didn't pay for breakfast in the rate, so we can't review that service. However we were pleasantly surprised to be offered coffee in the morning at checkout, expertly prepared by our host.

This hotel is approx 13 Klm from Pisa. As we were there in October, it as very quiet, so if looking for rest and quiet, can highly recommend this hotel. Not much to do here in the quiet months, we went for a swim and the sea temp was about 21 degrees. Very weak wifi in the room, but fine in the downstairs lounge. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is continental only, with good choice . I must admit I missed a good fried egg and bacon breakfast. Staff always helpful.
