My mom and I stayed 8 nights in the Vatican central suites and we were comfortable. I feel I got good value for the money spent. The suites are surrounded by other condos, or apartments and made me feel like I was another neighbor and not a tourist. You get a set of 3 keys (your room, the front door, and the main gate) and you come and go as you would at your own apartment without bumping into anyone since the help desk is only open between 9am-6pm and the place is not crowded. The elevator has a European design for 2 persons, and the clean marble floors of the stairs gave me a relaxed feel. The room itself was simple but comfortable and very clean with wifi and mini fridge. The AC works well, the bathroom looks like its been recently remodeled and has a bidet. The shower has modern features and, good water pressure. The location is super convenient since the bus#46 stop that takes you to the main attractions is across the street! And the train station is a 10 min walk (a bit hard to find but people help you find the way if you ask) I didn't spend money on taxis! The ladies at the front desk are very helpful and nice, they gave me a map and took the time to explain how to get to some of the locations.
