This monastery is operated by the Salesiani del Sacro Cuore.
A grand cloistered building, offering prime location and secure facilities. Rooms are simply furnished, but set back from the road and offer a peaceful stay in the busy heart of Rome.
Parking is quite difficult in Rome and this guest house provides on-site parking in the central secure courtyard (charges apply) which is a real bonus.
Breakfast is included in the price. Lunch and dinner available, book with the reception staff.

East of the city center. City with easy access. A short walk to Termini train station, with bus and metro stops for local and surrounding locations.
Construction began in the late 1800's. Pope Leone XIII commissioned Don Bosco to build a sanctuary and a house to accommodate disadvantaged children of the time.
Perfect location, clean rooms with great service. Quiet atmosphere - hard to believe that I was in the centre of Rome opposite the Roma Termini.

It was pleasant and they were helpful. It would be great to be able to park a bicycle in the courtyard area.
Tom - FI, Italy (August 2017)
The most fantastic location - right opposite Stazione Termini in Roma. The rooms are very spacious and clean - my only issue was that the bed was very narrow.
Menaka - Nsw, Australia (July 2017)
Two main advantages of this monastery: 1) there is air conditioning! 2) right next to the Termini, the main train/bus terminal in Rome - super convenient!
Elizabeth - MD, United States (July 2017)
Convenient location. Spacious and adequate rooms. It has the amenities which we looked for - A/C, WiFi, elevator. Staff speaks reasonable English which is an unexpected relief. Dinner (and lunch) available at 12 euros per person is a bonus.
Alice - BC, Canada (June 2017)
I could not have chosen a better place to stay. Steps from Termini Station, steps from lots of great eating places, your bus stop 1\2 a block away, airport shuttle bus steps away! The service was good, room sparse but spotless. I was on the third floor facing the bell tower and still could not hear very much of the hustle and bustle just outside the doors. I stayed a second time on my way home. This is the place to stay! I will be going back!
Sharon - BC, Canada (May 2017)
Came in on the train and was literally right across the street. That was so wonderful and convient.
Check in was early in the day, so you can drop your bags off and head out for the day. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.
Kathryn - IA, United States (May 2017)
We spent three nights here. The biggest plus point of Istituto Sacro Cuore is that it is bang opposite the Roma Termini train and bus stations, just across the road. You can come in till 12 midnight. Well maintained place, breakfast is pretty decent. Service at the breakfast room is great and staff are very friendly. I would recommend this place to anybody who is traveling to Rome and want to stay in the heart of the city, walkable from many of the important points of interest. Amazing place.

Super clean, with great continental breakfast.
Ray - British Columbia, Canada (October 2016)
This one wins for convenience--about 150 steps from the Termini train station. Literally across the street. Air conditioning on a hot August day was a life-saver. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was mayhem, though, with many food items depleted by the time we got there 15 minutes after opening (another tour group was staying there). They re-stocked before we left, but I had a train to catch. Street noise at night, but we closed both inner and outer windows and did okay. No curfew. Cost is a bit higher than the monastery six blocks away, but that one does not have A/C.

Staff was generally friendly and obliging.
Regina - Ontario, Canada (May 2016)
We loved the quiet atmosphere, while at the same time being very accessible to walk or take public transport. The breakfast was adequate -- though didn't offer huge variety and not much in the way of protein.
Lorri - OR, United States (May 2016)
Excellent location. Nice breakfast and friendly staff.
James - Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom (May 2016)
This is a wonderful Place to stay at. We will be back!
Kristina - , Sweden (March 2016)
Second time to stay here, it's a perfect location when needing to use the train to get to the airport!
Wendy - WA, United States (October 2015)
The wifi was a complicated procedure to obtain - I would like to suggest that if it states wifi available, that all guests be provided with the name and login code quickly upon checkin. I was not told where breakfast was...I did find out by asking later. Generally though, an excellent option, and very well located.
Angela - Victoria, Australia (September 2015)
Excellent value. I especially liked the security of the building.
Mary - OR, United States (May 2015)

The group that did said they were very happy with it. Public transport was very convenient.
Jane - Warwickshire, United Kingdom (October 2013)
Great staff, clean, comfortable, nice breakfast, would stay here again. If you need something close to Termini station you can't get better than this.
