Ever stayed at il Rosario in Rome

Has anyone ever stayed at the il Rosario convent? It is near the Trevi fountain and very reasonable. We are trying to be frugal in Rome (quite a challenge) as lodging is so much more expensive in Venice. We have a triple room with breakfast for 120Eur which I haven't found anywhere else. I read some of the TripAdvisor reviews but this merry band of travelers is my go to group!
Thanks -

Casa il Rosario is nearer the Colosseum which you can see from the roof top, and the Trajan Market. It has a 1st floor terrace, a second floor garden and the 4th floor rooftop terrace (with clothesline!!!!!). Floor levels are Italian...add a level for Americans. ;-) It was delightful..I met several interesting travellers there. In the mornings you can hear the nuns singing. Use googlemaps to show the location @ Via dei Goti. The convent is a few houses 'down' the map. Look for the garden as described. Read my post on the coffee question for a bar and a ristorante nearby. Actually, plenty of eating in vicino. One of the nuns kissed my cheek as I left. I'll bet the five stars hotels don't bother. Enjoy.
