20 rooms, and a former convent. Higher priced ($245-275, May 2001). Inviting public areas, breakfast room overlooks a courtyard, spacious bedrooms, modern bathrooms. Magazine felt the location was "slightly out-of-the-way"; I disagree. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the Duomo. Quiet street, but easy walking distance to Santa Croce and across the river.
The downside to this hotel, given its price, is that it has no elevator. Rooms 12, 13, and 14 are on the ground floor and open onto the courtyard. #12 is especially large. Avoid room #1, even though it''s a duplex. It has a loft bed and an awkward spiral staircase to the bathroom. This hotel also has suites.
