South of the Vatican, located in Trastevere. City with easy access. Well connected to the city center by public transport.
The guest house has been part of the congregation since 1930.

The sisters at Istituto Orsoline Di Maria Immacolata are wonderful, very friendly and approachable and ensuring we were happy and had everything we needed. The rooms are spotless and the atmosphere makes you feel at home. Sister Anna was always available for any advice or assistance. Our room was quiet , we slept very well. It was lovely to hear the sisters singing in the morning. The position is a short walk to all Trastevere has to offer. There is a bus stop out the front and the tram a few minutes walk away.

The sisters were very helpful with logistics: how to navigate from 1 place to another, location of services such as grocery, restaurant, bus stops. The common room had facilities for heating water and there was a common refrigerator. When i had a late arrival in the evening and an early morning departure, they made this possible.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Orsoline di Maria. The Sisters - particularly Sister Anna - were very helpful and hospitable. The accomodation was excellent. Sadly we did not sleep well. This was largely due to the very, very hot weather and local street noise - Trastevere is a vibrant area which only gets quiet around 1am-5am!! The rooms had fans, but not air conditioning which would have helped I think. Lack of breakfast was not a problem as there was an excellent cafe bar very close serving very good coffee and pastries. The accomodation also had vending for water, soft drinks, coffee and snacks - these were very, very cheap. We would highly recommend with the caveat that light sleepers like ourselves may not get the best sleep.

All friendly staff, Sister Anna was very helpful and accommodating, always making sure you are comfortable at the place, gives you tips on touring around the city

Quiet, clean, comfortable, friendly accommodations at an easily accessible rate and location. The sisters are warm and helpful, and a little bit playful - very sweet! The space is "monastery minimalist", with all the essentials, and anything you need is within a ten-minute walk in the bustling Trastevere neighbourhood. When I return to Roma I will stay here again. The only improvement would be to relay the wifi signal down the halls to the rooms, although reception in the lounge is fine.

The Sisters are very friendly and most accommodating.
David - Devon, United Kingdom (September 2016)
There is no place I would ever stay in Rome other than this very fine Instituto Orsoline di Maria Immaculata. I felt so safe, welcomed by the Sisters, well taken care of, and extremely happy with the location of the convent and the view from my my room. I could have surpassed the number 10 in several of these categories. I have recommended this convent to more than 4,500 Facebook friends and to all of my family. Hope you enjoy your stay there as much as I LOVED mine!!

I stayed for two weeks and everything was perfect. The sisters were lovely and provided good support and advice. Everything was clean and professional. The location couldn't have been better. I departed with sadness and hope to return there another time.

Lovely place and the sisters were really nice.
Christina - Ontario, Canada (June 2015)
Our accommodation was very comfortable. We had a warm welcome from Sister Anna, who assisted us greatly by indicating on the map the bus routes to enable us visit places of interest. The friendliness of the nuns was a great blessing to us. The locality in Trastevere is excellent in terms of availability of vibrant evening restaurant facilities.
Frank - Gauteng, South Africa (April 2015)
Excellent stay. The convent is located in the Trastevere area of Rome, which is a very nice, safe, and convenient location. There are hundreds of restaurants nearby through all the winding brick roads and piazzas. Dandolo Avenue is only one block from Trastevere Avenue a major commercial and restaurant area as well. The city tram and the bus lines operate on Trastevere Avenue. Two bus lines can even be picked-up directly in front of the convent on Dandolo Avenue. If you enjoy walking, the convent is within two to six miles of every attraction you may wish to see in Rome.
I was in Rome a total of fifteen days, and really enjoyed the location, the service, the cleanliness, the safety, and the quietude. There is also a community room, which has vending machines and a refrigerator. I would suggest adding a microwave to the community room. I would not hesitate to stay at the Institute Orsoline di Maria Immacolata again if the chance arises for a return to Rome.

The sisters were extremely friendly, they even allowed me to use their own computer because the Wi-Fi wasnÂ´t working.
Mirjana - Istria, Croatia (October 2014)
The sisters were very welcoming and friendly. We loved our stay. It was very easy to get to from the train station on the #75 bus which dropped us right outside the front door. Gt Single beds for our family of four, then rooms were extremely clean. Highly recommended.
Lee - Otago, New Zealand (October 2014)
Very peaceful. The nuns were very helpful in travel advice for Rome. The beds were rather hard but we got used to them.
William - Hawkes Bay, New Zealand (October 2014)
Our stay at the convent was perfect. The sisters were hospitable and helpful and the location in Trastevere was convenient to buses and trams.
John - ME, United States (March 2014)
The location - Trastevere - was off the busiest tourist areas and very pleasant. The Sisters were caring, helpful and made our stay in Rome much more enjoyable than would have been the case in a more commercially oriented environment. They really did take care of us.
Janette - Victoria, Australia (October 2013)
Each evening, after a full day of walking/touring/shopping, I returned and was welcomed by cheerful, friendly sisters. Their genuine, peaceful joy is such a contrast to Rome's tourist-driven energy. I'll remember that quiet joy long after I've forgotten the historic sites. One can't take a photo of that.
Kate - CA, United States (September 2013)
I had a wonderful stay. The sisters were very friendly and helpful. The bus stop was right in front of the convent, but the convent was also within walking distance to all of the major sites in Rome, if you love to walk.
Diane - NY, United States (May 2013)
The sisters were very nice and helpful and walking around was easy with cafes and churches very near.
