We stayed there for 5 nights while in Rome in mid-May. The rooms are spacious and the bed was comfortable. Since it is a convent, we were not surprised or dismayed that it was spartan. The shower was tiny and really needed to be replaced as the panels were coming out and it was dingy looking. Staff was fair. The guy at the desk, while friendly, was not particularly helpful as he was not specific about answering location questions for us. Breakfast was typical for Europe - not what Americans would eat but adequate. Noise was definitely an issue. The A/C worked OK in our room but not our friend's. The street noise is too loud, too late to leave windows open unless you have earplugs.
The best thing, excluding the reasonable price, was the great location. The Trastevere is a hip part of Rome, a huge change from 25 years ago when it was not recommended that tourists cross over to that area. There are great restaurants and gelato bars. It is a few blocks from the Ponte Sisto and fairly close to major sights. We took a cab up to the Pinco Gardens one morning and snacked at a delightful cafe bar before doing our own walking tour back to the Casa stopping at the Piazza del Popolo, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and more. i would recommend the Casa as long as you realize it is not meant to be the Hilton.
