We rented 2 rooms at the hotel with 2 people in each room and the same price for both. I checked into one room and found it to be very compact, as in postage stamp size. There was barely room to walk around the bed and the bathroom was small enough that it was hard to move in the shower or use the other facilities. Everything was micro-sized, right down to the room safe that was so small that it couldn't fit a small laptop. I was therefore quite surprised when I visited the other people in my party and they were in a much larger room. They had a balcony outside, we had a window. Their room was much larger, as was their bathroom (which included a window). They had a large safe where I did store my computer, too. When we left our room keys at the desk to go out, we were asked what we thought of the 2 rooms. I responded that I felt like we had gotten one and a half rooms, to which the desk clerk replied that some rooms are small based on "availability".
The staff was friendly and the breakfast was nice. Although close to the Vatican, the area is somewhat run down and not picturesque, especially the local metro station which can get very sketchy at dark. I would probably opt for a hotel with more standard room sizes guaranteed at booking and in a more tourist friendly area, but this was adequate if it is your best option.
