Albergo Giusti
Ranked #2,240 of 3,734 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 28, 2011

If you want to have a hassle free trip while in Roma, one of the key ingredients is to stay in a hassle-free hotel and I know just the place - Albergo Giusti. With a price of only 90 Euros per night for a spacious room with 2 beds and a light breakfast before you start your day, you can't get much better! The money we saved staying here was better spent sight seeing and enjoying tasty Italian food...

The staff (i.e. the nuns) were extremely easy to get along with and very knowledgeable. They ran the hotel just like any other hotel - they have maps at the front desk, someone working 24 hours a day and can easily answer any tourist questions that you may have. In addition, they do wake up calls and will order a taxi for you. They are extremely easy-going any willing to lend a helping hand...

The location is phenomenal as it is literally only a 10 minute walk to the closest metro station. The central metro station is only a 30 minute walk and if you're feeling ambitious, the Colesseum isn't too far away by foot either. If you're hungry, there's a grocery store across the street and a decent selection of restaurants around the neighborhood.

Obviously, with such a good price there are some pitfalls to the place. For example, the toiletries are limited and poor quality so you're better off bringing your own (e.g. soap, shampoo & conditioner). In addition, the air conditioner was old and didn't work too well and my television didn't work (but this wasn't a big deal as we were travelling Rome for most of the day). Finally, don't expect much from the beds...they're not fluffy clouds of goodness like you get at the Hilton...

However, despite the cons that this place may have, don't let that deter you from staying here. As I said before, the unbeatable price is reason alone to book your reservation right now...

Overall, Albergo Giusti is amazing for the price you pay. With its super-convenient location, even the most amateur traveller will be minutes away from the Colisseum, Spanish Steps or even the Vatican City...

Happy Travels!

This hotel is very plain and on a street that has little to recommend it, BUT, if you are on a budget it has friendly staff, good breakfast and clean and spacious rooms.
Other good points...close to some nice neighborhood restaurants, two blocks from the Metro and within walking distance to Saint Mary Major and the Train Station.
I personally loved it.

We paid 90 euro per day for myself and adult daughter. The room was simple, clean, reasonable size and we had everything we required. The washroom was a good size as well. The breakfast was typical Italian with lots of sweet rolls and yogart. No protien. If you order the night before they will provide you with a 'bagged' lunch of two Italian style sandwiches (yum), pear juice, bottle of water, cake (see picture, but one of the sandwiches is already half eaten) to take with you on your adventures. Very good idea! Only 6 euro.

Dinner was THE BEST anywhere. For 16 euro you are provided with a four course meal that was by far the best tasting meal I have eaten anywhere! If you stay here spend at least one, if not all of your dinners here. If you want the pleasure of eating outside then go for gelato later.

I had a very good nights sleep here. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. They provide an extra two pillow which we used. The front desk clerk was very very helpful and the nuns were very friendly. The location was very handy.

I would definately stay here again upon a return to Roma. In fact we only stayed two nights as they were booked out, I would have gladly cancelled my next reservation to stay.

Thank you sisters!

Wonderful place - the nuns are helpful, breakfast is good, our room was spotlessly clean and, amazingly for Rome, absolutely quiet. The location is great - a metro station is just around the corner, there's a grocery store very close by, and it's an easy and pleasant walk to the Colosseum. Great value - we would stay there again any time!

For our first trip to Rome, we decided to check out a convent run hotel much to the trepidation of some members of the extended family who worried about facilities and curfew timings, etc.. We based our choice on the positive reviews this hotel had recieved on TripAdvisor. The price seemed right and the fact that Indian nuns were part of this convent made it even more attractive- someone from our country in a foreign land.

We were not disappointed one bit - Giusti has some of the cleanest rooms ever. They were simple rooms but cheery with their yellow bed-spreads. The towels and linen were snow-white. The rooms and bathrooms were generously sized and one room had a lovely balcony overlooking the garden at the back. Breakfast was adequate - coffee, tea, crusty bread, pastries and yoghurt. The nuns were very helpful - full of advice about where to go and how to get there. They even arranged for a van to take all 8 of us and our luggage to the airport for a very good price. There was no curfew timing as such - you rang a bell and they buzzed you in.
Though the immediate street is not so attractive - the neighbourhood is very pretty with some good shopping to be done as well as great food - we had some of the best gelatos here as well as some Turkish kebabs. Just a few minutes walk away from the main railway station as well as the Colosseum and other sights, Giusti is well located.
All in all, Giusti is a great experience and we will definitely like to go back there.

I stayed here with a friend who speaks fluent italian and took me to show me Rome as I had never been before. We were on a tight budget so flew Jet 2, got the train from the airport and then the Albergo Giusti is walking distance from the Terminal.
From the outside it is not particularly pretty but inside it is very clean and whilst the rooms are basic they have everything you need and are very clean and comfortable.
The ladies and nuns on reception are lovely, speak several languages and are very helpful with sightseeing and restaurant recommendations.
The bedroom had a balcony, two single beds which were very comfortable, tv, hairdryer, ample large towels and an ensuite shower room with shower caps and shower cream.
The room was spotless and the towels and bedlinen were changed everyday.
All this for 90 Euros a night per room inc breakfast and taxes.
The location is very good, a few steps from a metro which goes directly to The Vatican and walking distance to several of the sights of Rome.
If you want to visit Rome but are on a tight budget and want a clean, comfortable and centrally located hotel then you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better than Albergo Giusti.

This is a lovely friendly place which is ideal for a city break if wanting to avoid Rome's extortionate hotel prices. Rooms are basic but comfortable and very clean. Bathrooms are again clean and more than adequate with a good shower, plentiful hot water and lots of towels. Rooms are air conditioned which we didn't need but would be great in the heat of summer. We had a room with a balcony (an unexpected treat) facing out on to the street which was absolutely fine, but a bit noisy on a Saturday night.
Breakfast was adequate - yoghurt, bread, jams, cake etc juice and coffee/tea. Dinner is available on request.
The Sisters are friendly, speak lots of languages and very helpful indeed. Internet access is available if required which proved very helpful to us when one of our party had his wallet stolen on the Metro - others beware !
It was our first time staying in this type of accommodation and we would not hesitate to book it again.
