If you're looking for a peaceful guest house, very close to the Vatican, with religious connections, then Residenza Madri Pie where we stayed on our recent visit to Rome may be for you.
The Madri Pie religious society was founded in the 18th century with the aim of educating people from all social backgrounds and it has active missions in Peru. Their guest house is situated five minutes walk to the west side of St Peter's square on the less touristy side of the Vatican, in a more residential neighbourhood. As my mother said, we could practically wave to the Pope from our bedroom window.
