North eastern Rome near Termini station. City with easy access. Well connected by public transport to central and major attraction areas of Rome.
I enjoy returning to this monastery. Location is ideal and the sisters are very helpful.

It was quiet, secure, impeccably clean. We are not Catholic but we apprieciated the reverent environment, the spiritual-mindedness of the nuns, and the absence of tourist oriented "stuff." The bed was a little too firm, but this was a minor inconvenience. Recommend to people who do not demand luxury, a TV, or availablity of the usual tourist requirements,

It was QUIET. I needed time to reajust to the time difference and I was able to get alot of sleep while here. I am terrible at languages - so all the nuns except 1 didn't speak English - it took some time to be let in as I couldn't understand what was being said.

it was a great cultural experience and an interesting alternative to a hotel or hostel. it was quiet and the nuns were very friendly. few of the nuns spoke any english, so communication was challenging at times. however, the nuns we could communicate with went out of their way to help us with travel plans. the 11pm curfew was slightly limiting for seeing rome at night.

Room was larger than what we expected, also, a nice bathroom. Nuns were wonderful even though we could only speak fractured Italian at best.
Also, several nuns spoke English and at least one was always available when we needed her. One in particular was young, joyful, and just plain fun to talk to. She was helpful with providing a wonderful transportation map of Rome as well as where to buy groceries nearby, and a few buses directly to places of interest rather than our having to go to Termini first. Maybe the curfew because we wanted to go to the opera one night and couldn't.
The curfew was not a major problem. We would go back to stay again. At the end, the nuns told us we were great guests and would like us back.

I loved the convent - it was peaceful and comfortable. Peaceful and quiet after a hectic day of touring. Comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. The balcony was a bonus. Mother Clara was wonderful - so helpful and welcoming.
