What a great location when visiting the Vatican and Rome. The room was spotless, airy and bright with a lovely big bathroom. There is a communal kitchen with a microwave (no oven/ hotplate) tea and coffee making and fridge. Out the back is a lovely gazebo with seating available - great place to sit quietly with a cup of tea.... More

This was my 3rd stay here, My aunt is a nun at the "main convent house" on Lake Garda. The nun's have always been wonderful. Friends of ours are there in Sept. There is WIFI but it is slow. There is luggage storage if you need it. If you like the idea of not overpaying for a hotel room, check... More

This place is run by nuns who make you feel at home immediately. As Rome is full of overpriced hotels with more or less friendly staff, this hotel really makes a difference. The atmosphere is a little more "hostel" than "hotel" but in a positive sense. There is a curfew (theoretically) but no one minds some quiet late home-comers. I... More

This working convent is an excellent choice for Rome. The rooms are rather modern and spotlessly clean. Most convents have a curfew but this one does not. It is almost exactly across the street from the entrance to the Vatican Museum. We had two adults and two teens in one room without a problem (at least with the room!). Our... More

My sister and I have stayed here three times now on two different trips to Italy and we can only recommend them. The nuns are lovely (dont speak any English but they work hard to overcome that with us!) and the rooms are spotless and cleaned daily. The convent is extremely well located for anyone interested in the Vatican but... More

I was delighted by this place. First, it's almost directly across the street from the Vatican Museums entrance, which was very handy. You can walk to the Metro in five minutes or so. Second, the rooms was modern, clean, and comfortable. Third, the price is terrific. When I arrived, a nun right out of central casting welcomed me at the... More

Rome can be expensive, but here you are right next to the Vatican (right across the entrance to the Vatican museums), near the metro and buses to get around in Rome at a budget price. Don't be scared that it's a convent, they are super nice/friendly nuns, they only speak Italian, so good luck with your reservation! There is a... More
