Reviewed 25 November 2010

What better foyer than an entry to the basilica! The accommodations were beautiful, clean, quiet and had easy access to all attractions of Rome. A great place for cappuccino was right across the street. Breakfast was included and very adequate. 24 hr desk service was nice to have. I felt safe and secure as well.

Stayed here last summer for two weeks alone and came back for one night on my honeymoon as a stay over before flying to Ireland. Very safe, clean and reasonably priced room with good breakfast.

Yes it has a unique ambiance being attached to a major Rome church, but you are staying in the hotel section, with a 140 Euro rack rate on the cheaper rooms that we were allocated. The bedrooms were tatty with peeling wallpaper, scuffed furniture and really noisy with the constant ambulance sirens day and night. The bathroom was tiny, water at best lukewarm. The continental breakfast, as previously commented by other tripadvisor members, was dull, dull, dull with no variety all week: still the same green apples the only fresh fruit item. There is no lounge area, other than a seat in reception. A real shame, as a freshen up of the rooms, an attempt to improve breakfasts and provision of a guest lounge area would make it a whole lot better place to stay. Most of our group felt the same, as did other guests.

We stayed here summer last year. We liked it coz it was unique, a monastery and hotel. The staff were nice. We walked from the hotel to the Colosseum and Palatine Hill, then onward to the other attractions. If you don't want to walk, you can take the metro which is located not too far away.

I travelled with a total of ten people split among three families. The rooms were huge (abliet a bit spartan) and were very clean. The bathroom was large. The hotel had great common areas (including a table, couch and chairs at each end of the longest, tallest hallway I have ever seen) as well as a great rooftop terrace that was perfect for having a glass of wine during the evening. The building is unique and is housed next to a church. While otehr reviewers commented on the street noise, we did not find this to be an issue. The metro stop is about three blocks away, and a streetcar to the Stazion Termini is about 1.5 blocks in the other direction. The neighborhood is definitely residential and somewhat "off the beaten track", but it had its own unique charm. The hotel is adjacent to an historic site, and parts of teh fourth century city wall borders the property. We found two excellent restaurants within a block of the hotel -- among the best meals we had in Rome and very reasonably priced. My only complaints were that the hotel breakfast did not offer many healthful options, and the sole elevator was small and difficult to reach.

If you are looking for a hotel that is clean with large rooms and lots of attractive common areas that's in a real Roman neighbood, this is the perfect place. If you are looking for Four Seasons-like amenities, skip it.

This hotel is located in a church. It is a historical accomodation house. We were pleased with our room, breakfast was very good with lots of variety. The late afternoon desk help was excellant, the morning desk staff was not very helpful or kind. Overall we had a pleasant stay and will stay here again if in Rome. This hotel is located near great resturants and near metro stations. We even walked to the collosium from this hotel. It was very near the train station as well. (10 min. walk)

We moved to this hotel to be with the rest of our friends. The location is out of the way to see most of Rome's famous sites, except for San Giovanni de Laterno which is one of our favorite churches, along with the adjorning church, Santa Croce en Gersulemme, and the Cimitero Monumentale del Verano.

The rooms are large with high ceilings, but a long distance from the front desk. I had a lot of problems with the internet which was not free and walked back and forth three times in an evening. The restaurants nearby are okay. The breakfasts were standard, nothing special. No warm fuzzies. Staff was not particularly helpful.
