We spent a wonderful two weeks here in June 2012. We hadn't planned on having dinner at the Casa, but did so on the first night as we were too tired to go out. Based on that first meal we decided to pay the additional fee and have dinner there every day - the sisters make their own bread and cheese, and the Piazza Farnese is near a large outdoor market so every day there were excellent vegetables and fruits. They bring serving dishes to the table which makes it much easier to control the amount you eat when on holidays and their choice of wine is good. Breakfast each day is bread, cheese, fruits, prosciutto, cereals, juice, yoghurt and excellent coffee.
The rooms have double-glazed windows and air-conditiong. Our room faced the Piazza Farnese and was very quiet except for an outdoor concert in the square sponsored by the next door French embassy one day, and a political demonstration the other.
Our room was very well maintained - very clean and everything worked. The Sisters were friendly and helpful, and they speak among them many languages. We made the mistake of booking through Monstery Stays, an American business which we thought was affilitated with the convent, but isn't. Monastery Stays added 25 euros to the cost of the room each day - this is their fee. Save money by booking directly at the Casa at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will find that the sisters will respond in the language you write to them in. Many of the nuns we encountered spoke English, and before we arrived they corresponded with us by email in English.
