Just a few important points to start off: the new/official name is Vatican Treasure. It is not a hotel but serviced apartments in a big building which also includes private residences. Rooms are on 4th and 5th floor with a small shared seating/kitchen area. Very nice antique lift, small and probably too tight for a wheelchair but functional for a few persons or to take your luggage up/down. Good location on a shopping street (branded stores and local stores) and about 10 minutes walk to Vatican Museums, Saint Peter's Square or Castel d'Angelo. Busline 81 stops in front of the building.
Rooms are good, modern style and all necessary amenities. Kettle and Dolce Gusto pod coffe machine, small fridge, bathroom with shower, toilet and bidet. Airconditioning and possibility to open the windows. No safety box in the room. Sofa which can also be used as a bed for third person/child. Although it is not a hotel, the apartments are cleaned and coffee/tea/toiletries restocked every day.
Two drawbacks: the WiFi is not that good, disconnects quite often, and traffic noise from the street in front can be heard. So if you have trouble sleeping, bring some earplugs or select a room at the back. For us it was not much of an issue, but you can hear the traffic when you are in the room and window is closed.
