Pisa is a small city so you can choose accommodation practically all over the centre without any logistical problems. The best areas to sleep as tourists are near the Miracle Square – Tower view, near Pisa International Airport, near the train station and in the historical center.
Pisa is one of the most visited cities in Tuscany, famous for its Leaning Tower, its historical centre is rich in history, important palaces, one of the most prestigious Universities in Italy, among other attractions.
I recommend sleeping in Pisa if you want to experience a real Tuscan village, attend its romantic sunsets on the banks of the Arno River. Pisa also has an important international airport (Galileo Galilei) that connects Tuscany with the most important cities in Italy and Europe.
The rest of the areas (outside the centre or in the nearby villages) I recommend them only if you travel by car and want to be away from the pedestrian and tourist areas. The historical centre of Pisa is easy to walk.
