Loved the "on the hill" location, high ceilings and windows, ironed linen towels and ability to buy rosaries onsite. Attentive English speaking front staff. Dinner was delicious but would have liked to have a menu for the day displayed. Grazie

This is a great place to stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms and modern comfort. The building is located in an Extraterritorial Zone of the Holy See and as such you are not subject to Italian taxes. It is however a bit far from the city center and you have to walk up the Vatican Hill. There is a bus stop in front of the building, but the buses tend to be crowded.

Absolutely fabulous place to stay. Very simple accommodations, that are spotlessly clean, located just outside Vatican walls. We walked all over Rome from here. The couple of times we needed a cab, one was called from the front desk for us. Lunch and dinner were also available in the dining room without reservation or advance notice. The front desk staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend a stay here and would certainly return.

My room was huge. The bathroom was also large. The breakfasts were delicious. My daughter joined me for dinner one night. Because she cannot eat gluten or dairy, they made her a special meal. This monastery is used by school groups, so it was a little noisy in the evening, but the kids were quiet by 10. It is within walking distance to the Vatican and the Vatican museum. Just be sure to get the directions to the Vatican from the front desk as there is a less steep way to get there. I would recommend this monastery to friends.
