My boyfriend and I spent 4 days in Rome for my 21st birthday. First things first, this hotel is extremely basic. Very plain and simple rooms, no tv or fancy stuff, but as it is a religious house that's what we expected. And in all honesty if you're going to Rome to stay in a fancy hotel then you're going for the wrong reasons! We were barely at the hotel except to shower and sleep as a trip to a city with so much to offer should be!
The grounds are beautiful, there is a buzz entry system through a huge gate so the whole complex feels very safe. Reception is manned 24 hours and you leave your key when you exit the complex. Reception staff were very helpful and polite.
The location couldn't be more ideal, yes it's not in the centre but Cornelia metro station on line A is literally 4 minutes walk away which takes you directly into the centre of Rome. After a long day in a busy place it was nice to get away from it for the nights! The area felt safe even when we returned at 11.30pm one night.
In the short walk between the metro station and hotel there are numerous convenience stores, a McDonald's, pizzeria and ice cream shop. The fruit and veg sold is delicious and extremely cheap, we bought bananas etc to take out with us in the day.
Breakfast was included in our rate and is the same daily. It includes various cereals, pastries, bread rolls, cold meat selection, yoghurts and a very odd tasting scrambled egg (we still ate it) It is again basic but just what we needed, lots of carbs for energy when walking around! We found that if we ate a large breakfast we weren't hungry until lunchtime when we usually had a calzone from street sellers which cost around €4.
Overall if you're looking for a simple and cheap place to stay in Rome where you only really want a comfy bed and a place to wash then this is perfect. I have no faults with Casa La Salle as it is exactly what we expected a Religious place would be.
