This convent is very centrally located. The Sisters were helpful. We have stayed with other monastery stays and have found this a little expensive. Furthermore Rome is pretty hot in Summer as well as crowded and the small room could be stifling. To compensate there is an excellent laundromat with internet cafe about 20 metres away and a fantastic restaurant... More

A group of us stayed here on pilgrimage and we loved it. The sisters were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was basic and good. Central location near the Tiber and the Vatican.

A warm welcome from the nuns and excellent food. Note that this is easily reached by bus from the station and is excellently placed for the Vatican and the centre of Rome. The room was comfortable - no lift. We would definitely stay here again!

The venue was very disappointing and the staff unfriendly. When I arrived I was told the price was more than it was when I booked, the price had increased more than three years ago and they tried to get me to pay more, even though the price I had been quoted was written on the information sheet in the room!...

The only good thing I have to say about this place is the location, which is fabulous! We were in very easy walking distance of the main attractions of Rome, including the Vatican City and the Spanish Steps. On the other hand, however, there is nothing else to mention that is positive about this place. Firstly, the rooms are incredibly... More

Relatively basic B&B, often used by groups, which may mean high level of noise, people running up and down stairs etc. Rooms OK, all with wc and showers ensuite. Bus stop around the corner. Avoid the very basic breakfast, go to the bar around the corner for a caffè latte and a cornetto instead. Location, on the other hand, is... More

We had stayed in a convent previously and had a delightful experience, so we were hoping this would be similar. How wrong! Our room was miniscule with miniscule bathroom. VERY noisy from street noise, I hardly got any sleep (window was closed). We complained to the sisters, and they got defensive and huffy. After much wrangling and unpleasantness, they agreed...

We first stayed at Fraterna Domus in 2006 with the kids (triple room), and this year when I brought my mom to Rome, I could not think of any better place to stay. The location is fabulous, we only walked everywhere for 3 days, never having to take any other mode of transport around the city. Staff very friendly, from... More

My sister and her husband had never been to Rome before and we wanted to give them a great taste of the wonderful city. Included in this wish was a return visit to Fraterna Domus for evening dinner. We were not disappointed. The welcome was warm and the food delicious. As I understand it, fresh ingredients are purchased each day... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
