Yes, this is a typical convent accommodation in Italy. However, none of the sisters speaks English. One receptionist does, if you are lucky to arrive when she is on duty.
We managed with some French in which one of the Sisters was fluent.
The Convent faces a square and across from it there is a jazz bar from which loud music emanates until the wee hours. Not conducive to falling easily asleep.
We stayed on the first (European) floor where baths were few and often had to be waited for. Ditto for the toilets.
Upstairs there were more toilets but it meant having to climb many stairs.
The biggest plus is that the Brancacci Chapel is right next door.
This is a grand old building with high ceilings and many steps between floors. No elevator.
