I'm not sure what to think of this place since this was my first trip to Rome and so I can't really compare it to other places, particularly on price. Looking at the guidebooks and trip advisor thought I think it's likely that there are options out there which are better value for money or at least would have suited me better.
There's no doubt that the location is brilliant for the Vatican but I think most visitors to Rome will allocate one day for that and that means that the rest of the time it feels pretty out of the way. It is very close to the metro but the fact that you have to do that journey makes going out in the centre of Rome for the evening a bit of a chore.
My room was big (could have easily fitted a double) and it was kept completely spotless along with the rest of the place. I did feel that the lack of a sink in the room was a bit of a hindrance since you had to use the communal bathroom to brush your teeth, wash your hands, etc. My room was next to the bathroom and unfortunately this meant I heard a lot more about my fellow guests than I would have wished (this would only be an issue with the room I stayed in). The courtyard was nice (although right next to a petrol station) but since I was staying in October and it was cold first thing I didn't really get the benefit.
The hostess was really welcoming and friendly and went out of her way to help me with my questions and queries (as well as a fabulous dinner recommendation), whilst respecting my privacy - I felt able to come and go as I pleased. I thought the breakfast was good and more varied than some Italian hotels I have stayed in.
All in all I think this is a great place but I didn't think it justified the price they charged. I think the main problem was that I didn't really feel the benefit which you might if you were to spend more time there - I spent less than an hour there each day excluding sleeping so it didn't matter so much whether the room was big or small or had a garden or not. If you are planning a different kind of trip it may be perfect for you.
