I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a solo visit to Rome.
It was a great place to stay and very reasonably priced ( Accommodation in Rome is expensive!).
The room was very basic, with a cupboard, single bed, bedside table, table and chair. All I needed was a place to sleep, so it was more than enough.
The breakfast was basic with cereals, breads, rolls, jams etc.
It was VERY VERY clean and I loved the smell of incence as well as the very early morning singing from the church next door. Do not worry! It is not loud enough to wake you up!
The people having drinks and dinner on the piazza however, will be loud enough to keep you awake! I was given the option to take a room with a view, or something quieter that did not face the piazza.
I chose the room with a view, but I took earplugs especially for that reason. I would say rather choose a room that face the back of the property. You will get a better night rest and the view is not really worth it. Rather go to the piazza for a drink or take in the rest of Rome's sites.
The location was excellent! The Collosseum is short walk away with many pizza places and little restaurants in the area. I arrived by train from the airport, and it was an easy walk from the station.
The nuns and other staff were all very friendly and helpful.
I won't even look for another place to stay when I am in Rome again.
