We stayed in the 'superior' studio for 2 nights and that was just about the right length of stay in this part of town. The studio is nicely furnished in a contemporary style and has everything you need for a short stay. The place was very clean and there was a good supply of towels. The kitchen area is small but with a good sized fridge and small freezer section, dishwasher, good oven and hob, but no microwave or kettle. No basics like salt & pepper, sugar, dishwasher tablets etc. The bathroom is nice with a good power-shower and there is a washing machine too. We had asked to drop our luggage off early afternoon and upon arrival we were kindly given the keys straight way which was very convenient for us! The owner speaks little English but with our little bit of Italian it was sufficient and he was very kind and helpful at all times. The area has everything you need like a bakery, supermarket, pizzeria's etc which is useful as there is no breakfast option. Because there is a restaurant on-site there is a fair bit of noise coming from the kitchen and the courtyard is rather 'echoey'. The apartments are in a side street where nothing else happens and it feels a bit unsafe as it's quite dark and desolate as there are no flats or houses, just some (empty?) buildings/warehouses. It was a bit too far out from the town, but the tram (24) gets you to the Duomo square in 15 minutes or so and you never have to wait too long to catch one. We booked with bookings.com and it listed that the superior studio had a large double, a sofabed and 2 singles which wasnt the case; there is one sofabed (probably 140 wide) and a double bed (consisting of 2 small singles). So it meant that our teenage daughters had to share the sofabed which resulted in a lot of duvet-pulling and arguments... Still, staying in a place like this with a family is much better than having to book 2 rooms in hotel, so I would definitely recommend it for a short stay.
