Fodor's Review

On a quiet street within walking distance of the sights sits this unusual hotel, a converted 16th-century convent. The large, suitelike rooms are ideal for honeymooners, families, and small groups of friends; some are on two levels, and many are arranged around a central courtyard. Pale travertine tiles used to refit some bathrooms provide a pleasing, ultramodern contrast to more traditional furnishings. Smaller rooms are more intimate, and some open onto a little shared

courtyard. The gracious owners enjoy chatting in the light and airy lounge; breakfast is served in a glassed-in Renaissance loggia or in the central courtyard.

J&J Review

The "steep" stairs mentioned in the Fodors review are not to be ignored. This historic building doesn't have an elevator, and the very LONG and very STEEP stairacase necessary to reach all rooms,is daunting, even to the young. Our room on the top floor was huge, and comfortable, though simple. The breakfast was pleasant, not sumptuous. The location is outstanding: quiet, but only a 15-minute walk to the Duomo. My opinion of the hotel is that

it is overpriced for what it offers. Our stay was pleasant and I have no complaints, but with no elevator and a moderate level of service and other amenities, I think one can either spend less and get an elevator and equally-pleasant accommodations, or, spend a little more and get many more amenities.
