It was much better than expected! The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were completely modernized. Also, the building manager was always ready to help with any problems that arose.
The assistance from the building managers.
There was no real view from the property. It looked out into private gardens and terraces.
Piazza Santa Croce is close to all of the major tourist attractions - about a 10 minute walk - and the train station about a 15-20 minute walk. The location was not loud or obnoxious. The bulk of the tourists are gone by 5pm.
