This is a great if simple place. I always try to stay here when in Rome. It is simple. The nuns are extremely friendly and the Chapel is beautiful. I think some of the more negative reviews miss the point that this is primarily a religious hostel for pilgrims (although anyone who phones up can book)! Given that it is...

This is a wonderful place to stay with large groups. The accommodation is quite basic but it is very clean and comfortable. It has a beautiful new chapel in the grounds with the best acoustics I have ever heard in any church! It has a lovely atmosphere also and is a very peaceful place to stay away from the noise...

We stayed 4 nights and honestly we barely slept. It was sweltering hot and with no air con we had to leave the window open. The street was exceptionally noisy most of the night, which is great if you were allowed out after 11 to join in on the festivities. Alas, no. Curfew kicks in around the same time as...

This convent is very centrally located. The Sisters were helpful. We have stayed with other monastery stays and have found this a little expensive. Furthermore Rome is pretty hot in Summer as well as crowded and the small room could be stifling. To compensate there is an excellent laundromat with internet cafe about 20 metres away and a fantastic restaurant...

A group of us stayed here on pilgrimage and we loved it. The sisters were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was basic and good. Central location near the Tiber and the Vatican.

A warm welcome from the nuns and excellent food. Note that this is easily reached by bus from the station and is excellently placed for the Vatican and the centre of Rome. The room was comfortable - no lift. We would definitely stay here again!

The venue was very disappointing and the staff unfriendly. When I arrived I was told the price was more than it was when I booked, the price had increased more than three years ago and they tried to get me to pay more, even though the price I had been quoted was written on the information sheet in the room!...

The only good thing I have to say about this place is the location, which is fabulous! We were in very easy walking distance of the main attractions of Rome, including the Vatican City and the Spanish Steps. On the other hand, however, there is nothing else to mention that is positive about this place. Firstly, the rooms are incredibly...

Relatively basic B&B, often used by groups, which may mean high level of noise, people running up and down stairs etc. Rooms OK, all with wc and showers ensuite. Bus stop around the corner. Avoid the very basic breakfast, go to the bar around the corner for a caffè latte and a cornetto instead. Location, on the other hand, is...

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.

“We were in #17, which is up a lot of stairs. If that is a problem for you, you can ask for a room with less stairs.”

“We selected the room with a private bathroom. Worth the money. To find the convent you need to go down the alley beside the little restaurant... just ask someone when you get off the bus how to get down to via Monte Brianzo, it is easy to end up crossing the bridge. You can also go down the stairs as you head into the bridge area. But via Monte Brianzo is a lower road.”
