Casa Il Rosario was a very pleasant surprise! The accommodations are simple, clean and comfortable. I wasn't expecting any perks, but I was wrong. Some of the things that were missing in lodging in other towns I visited were available at Casa Il Rosario. Large shower stall, liquid soap dispenser on the bathroom wall, free wifi, comfortable "soft" pillows, a... More

After staying at the boss' expenses on Piazza di Monte Citorio, I moved to this more modest place, nearly 100 € less per night. I was quite late with (direct) booking, so I had a room with shared bagno on the corridor, for 42 €, which in Rome is really a bargain. (Ensuites are not that more expensive). Via Sant'Agata...

What can we say? This monastery is in a great location, the nuns and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was adequate and the bathroom spacious. The beds were firm with good pillows. Towels were also great. We were on the third floor and mainly took the stairs but there was a lift which was handy on arrival... More

The Monastery is located in a prime location, near the Coliseum and other central Rome landmarks. It is clean and quiet but for the price, compared to other locations it is lacking. We appreciated being able to spend quiet nights at the monastery. However even though the rooms are of an adequate size and are kept very clean, they are... More

The place is formally run by Dominican nuns. To be sure, there are some nuns, very gentle and helpful. And there is a modest chapel as well, that allows for a moment of quiet. Most of the actual work seems to be done by much younger persons. Anyway, the place is perfectly clean, simple and quiet. Perfect place for sleeping;... More

Stayed here in September for 4 nights. Reception was very personal and friendly with a warm welcome. Our room was on the third floor and although small it was quite comfortable. Bathroom was good with a good shower. We had a small balcony which overlooked the small street where the convent is, Continental Breakfast was plentiful with a nice variety.... More

We stayed 3 nights. The location was perfect within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was more than enough to get you started. There is a courtyard off the 2nd floor where you can get some green space for a relaxing time... More

This hotel is a great find in Rome. It is close enough to the Collesseum & other historical sites to be very convenient, but at the same time is set in a quiet neighborhood without any loud traffic noise. The rooms are simple but adequate. I might suggest that you bring your own soap & a washcloth is so inclined.... More

After staying in this convent and enjoying its security, quietness, cleanliness, and economy, I can definitely recommend it with high praise and will plan on staying at other such facilities on future trips even though we are not Catholic. Our second floor room was large with two windows opening onto a beautiful courtyard. We have never stayed in a quieter... More

Where to start? The sisters are all lovely and helpful. Most speak very good English and the rest enough to communicate basically, I had no problems at all and I speak limited Italian. The rooms are basic, but I knew that going in. It was all I needed after a hard day walking around Rome, a bed and a shower... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
