truth in advertising

Looking for a hotel to book in Pisa, and ran across one of the shortest and most descriptive explanations of a hotel I’ve ever read, from Rick Steves’ Italy book: “Hotel Villa Kinzica, with 30 tired but decent rooms and indifferent management is just steps away from the Field of Miracles.”

Almost makes me want to stay there just to see what “tired but decent” means exactly. The pictures look nice.

    “tired but decent”. What a strange description. I’d be tempted to stay there too, just to see if that felt accurate. Are you going on vacation or is this a music gig?

    Both — giving a recital in Perugia, then visiting Florence and Cinque Terre. Very excited!
