The historic center of Rome. City with easy access. Bus, train and metro stops for local and surrounding locations. The Sisters can assist with local bus tickets, ask the reception for details.
Built in 1925 as the principle house of the Order, it was beautifully renovated in 1997 providing new facilities within the grand facade of the orignal architecture.

Our stay was a very nice experience. The nuns were very helpful and accommodating. We went to the mass in the morning and very impressed with the beauty of the chapel. We would definately recommend it.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa di Accoglienza Tabor. The booking system was so simple. We could see the Vatican from our bedroom window - it was awe-inspiring. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was just what we needed to set us up for a day exploring Rome. Everyone was so kind and helpful. My friend attended Mass in the church which she tells me was a lovely experience. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Rome

Casa Tabor is located a few minutes walk outside the Vatican Walls. There is public bus transportation that stops right outside the Casa that will bring you around the Vatican as well as central Rome and the train station. The Casa was very clean and modern. The Sisters there were all very nice and helpful in showing us the bus schedules. The breakfast was also very good. The only negative is there is only one trattoria within walking distance from the Casa. So it would be good to eat before you turn in for the night. Everything else was great!
David - MS, United States (April 2016)
Wonderful place. Very quiet. Sisters were most helpful. We'd definitely stay there again should we return to Rome.

We felt very welcome - the nuns were lovely to our three children. Brekky was good too - enough options to keep everyone happy. The grounds are gorgeous and it was great to come back to Casa Tabor after a long hot day of seeing sights.

The sisters are very welcoming, hospitable, and helpful. The monastery is walking distance to restaurants and stores, and there is a bus stop one block away which was convenient to tourist locations. The grounds are beautiful and were a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Rome.

LuAnn - IL, United States (June 2014)
Casa di Accoglienza Tabor was located conveniently near Vatican City. Sr. Stefania was very helpful with every request. The gardens were beautiful. There was easy access to the bus stop which we used to get around Rome.
Nancy - CA, United States (June 2014)
It was a lovely location and fulfilled all I wished for personally. Sunday Mass would have been a bonus but perhaps filling their large beautiful Chapel with other worshippers on the Sabbath is better value all round for them.
Barbara - Essex, United Kingdom (May 2014)
Wonderful, excellent, the best.

Maggie - North Yorkshire, United Kingdom (April 2013)
We stayed at 3 places booked through monasterystays - this was the best. The sisters and staff were very friendly and helpful with travel info - their English was a bit of a challenge but we always ended up communicating. Rooms were clean and they had an excellent European breakfast, to include ham and cheese. Daily mass is available. The behind the Vatican location is quiet and the view of St. Peter's dome was great.

Robyn - GA, United States (August 2012)
The Sisters are very welcoming and are multiple-lingual. The guest house is well situated to Central Rome if you don't mind using public transport. There is a restaurant close by for dinner. Breakfast is basic but efficient and fresh. This is a safe and quiet location. Well worth it.
Margaret - Northern Territory, Australia (July 2012)
Excellent, tranquil and yet close to sites and transport links. If you are arriving via Termini station and have luggage, it is worth the taxi fare.
Maggy - Lancashire, United Kingdom (July 2012)
Pretty small single beds. Unsatisfactory room ilumination for reading.

Very pleasant; light, bright and clean. The religious at the desk were especially helpful. I had no negative comments.
Marilyn - IA, United States (June 2010)
The room was good, the welcome exceptional, the grounds fantastic. The atmosphere, food, gardens, staff and the price in comparison with hotels. The beds were small and stiff.
William - Alberta, Canada (May 2009)
It was a truly wonderful experience staying with the sisters. The convent is beautiful. The grounds and chapel are lovely. The sisters are very friendly.
Everything was wonderful. We plan on staying there again on our next trip to Rome.
Deborah - TX, United States (December 2008)
I wasn't sure what I would get for the price. It was very reasonable but the place was immaculate! Good water pressure, very clean, the sisters were friendly and helpful. Some spoke English and/or German (all spoke italian). Only an hour window for breakfast. If I go back to Rome, I will almost certainly stay here.
Steven - IL, United States (May 2008)
Peaceful, safe, attending mass each morning, listening to the nuns sing, helping us with directions and taxis, beautiful grounds, rooms were kept up and clean, beautiful view.
