Casa Santa Sofia is beautifully presented, offers great hospitality and the Colosseum is only a short walk from your front door. One of the finest offerings in Rome.
The historic center of Rome.
I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Santa Sofia. The rooms were very clean, the location is great, and compared to other Bed and Breakfasts or pensions, the breakfasts are large by Italian standards.
Excellent location within walking distance of Roma Termini and Metro Cavour close by and major Roman sites. Numerous cafes nearby. Casa Santa Sofia provided everything I needed. Would stay again.
Excellent value for money. Good location - very close to Forum and Santa Maria Maggiore, with perfect connections by underground. Clean rooms with internet. Staff was helpful and no curfew was imposed (you get the key to the main door). The breakfast however reminded that we were in Italy - there was a buffet with small variety of things, but sweet products (sweet rolls, jams etc.) dominated and it did not contain cheese nor sausages.
Everything was absolutely wonderful. The sisters were extremely hospitable and kind and the room was immaculately clean.
I do recommend that you request a room NOT facing the square as it is a lovely, very active area into the night. Everyone was so helpful and kind and the continental breakfast was perfect.
They need to invest in soundproof windows for the rooms facing the square, people were up late each night singing and talking. Also, I had to leave early one day to catch a train. I did not know how to open the door and almost missed it with another lady that was there. The automatic doors only open automatically one way, so we were stuck in the foyer until the other lady figured out the latch was just very tight.
In general, the location was the best part of this place; I walked everywhere. The lack of some basic amenities like a small fridge, electric jug and safe makes me think twice about staying here again. Wifi was on and off. Sisters very nice even though spoke little or no English. Breakfast very basic and not the sort that Australians or Americans are used to, so be warned; I provided my own and still paid for the other. Also, it is very late starting at 8am hence any day tours booked that start early, you'll have to provide your own.
The people I worked with at the location did not speak English very well, so knowing some Italian could prove beneficial.
Faces noisy restaurants and square at night. Earplugs essential - room may get too stuffy if weather hot and you need to close windows to block sound. But otherwise very nice location and nice clean room.
I enjoyed my stay. Excellent location
Great location, very clean, very nice people.
Great location, friendly and hospitable service, clean rooms, reasonably priced The only slight negative was the breakfast, which turned out to be just one giant bread roll and hot drinks.
The ambience, the chapel, the nuns, the fountain outside, the bathroom inside the room, very clean. It was great for us but older people might find it noisy outside into the wee hours.
The friendly people, helpful restaurant recommendatoins, etc. I liked every bit of my stay. I'd stay there again, myself.
The location was fantastic and they were very accommodating for my arrival and departure times. The staff were very friendly and willing to work with my arrival and departure times.
It was well located, and had adequate facilities. Breakfast was a bit dull. It was noisy at night, but that is to be expected of a central location in Rome.
Cleanliness, friendly helpful people. Lots of everyday people in the piazza outside throughout the day. Breakfast juice was tang, no cereal available, coffee was Nescafe.
The location was excellent and the price was great. Housekeeping left a little to be desired, but overall was good. No towels or service on Sunday.
I knew it would be basic but breakfast was truly awful!A roll,butter,jam and Nescafe coffee!!
I was very pleased with the cleanliness and location.
Ideal location, safe, clean, right price.
It was clean and the room was quite adequate. Staff was very helpful. It was noisy. (My room was on the first floor overlooking several outdoor restaurants). Breakfast was minimal, but adequate given the low cost of the room. The room was very good for the price.
The breakfast was the disappointment. The room was clean as was the bathroom. The staff helpful and pleasant. The location was good.
Fortunately I did not have a preconceived idea of what this experience would be. The location was good; we were just blocks from the Colosseum and the nuns were helpful; the beds were comfortable it was on a piazza and it was the night before a national holiday. It was difficult to sleep and we can sleep almost anywhere.
I wasn't expecting much. It was close to Colosseum. There was a place to use the internet less than 1/2 block away. Several restaurants within 2 blocks. Metro stop 2 blks. Bus stop on the side of the convent. Small twin beds. Breakfast, roll, small cream cheese, jams, orange juice. No fruit. Same roll everyday. Just changed towels, no making beds or cleaning.
The room was clean, it had a good sized armoire/closet, and the bathroom was in good clean, adequately spaced, and functional. It was also two blocks from the Metro stop so it provided great access to the main public transit arterials. There was very little interaction with the nuns which is not what I had hoped for. I had hoped they could speak a little more english so we could interact and visit. It was simply a place to sleep and nothing more.
The location. Besides the tariff, being close to the classicatl sites & museums, a subway station and a bus service, the key attraction was it's position on a piazza. The piazza dei monti was a window on the locals in that part of Rome. Quietely busy - but away from the crowds or too many tourists. Basic rooms - but expected that. Very clean, good servicing of rooms. But some might have issues if they were in rooms facing the piazza - the locals noisily drank on in a cafe/bar on the piazza until midnight. But this was no problem for me - in fact, it enhanced the atmosphere.
