Overall every place has it's proper pro's and con's. This is an excellent place to stay all things considered, but one should know exactly what to expect in order for it to fit well. First of all Rome has generally less options for different types of lodging than other cities. Cheap places are often very run down and few while pricier options have limited space and accessibility. So for this place the positive aspects are a fair price, very close to St. Peters Basilica and that section of the city, nearby public transport will get you to the downtown in twenty minutes or so, the place is spotlessly clean, the nuns who run it are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is average, the rooms are typical of a Roman apartment, the neighborhood is quiet and there are some nice common spaces and porches to relax and hang out. Because the facility is also a home for the nuns certain expectations are in place. The overall atmosphere is more relaxed and quiet, there is an 11pm curfew, so that the nuns can lock up, get to bed and keep to their schedule, and while they will do everything to make your stay accomodating, this is not a hotel in the modern sense but more like a pilgrim house so there is no concierge or room service. Depending on what you are looking for in your Rome sojourn this place is well worth the stay. I recommend this place a good value for money, a place for mature or independent travelers to rest while being in good access to the city.
