Hands down an excellent location and experience for Rome. We stayed there in December and January with our three sons and again in March, 2023 for one night between a visit to the Amalfi coast and returning home.

Don't be worried about this being a convent. The rooms are about the cleanest and spacious we have ever had in Europe. I think they have about 70 of them on-site. My wife and I had a double and our sons had a room with three beds. The location was walking distance to everything and there was always someone at the front desk providing access. Everything in our rooms was modern and actually looked to be fairly new and updated.

The price cannot be beat! Try emailing the convent directly to get the best overall rate. We spent 120 euros for our night in March, when other hotels were closer to 300 per night.

We were able to easily catch a bus to/from the hotel to just about anywhere in Rome. Piazza Navona is a 10 minute walk in one direction. The Forum and Colosseum 10 minutes the other direction. Even Vatican City is an easy 20-25 minute walk. You can get to Camp di Fiori in minutes as well as Trastevere.

Largo di Torre Argentina is just a few steps away, and it is where Julius Caesar was killed. It is also where you can pick up many buses.

We spent two weeks at Casa Santa Lucia Filippini and enjoyed our time thoroughly.
Sr. Carmella and the ladies at the front desk were helpful with local information and translations. Breakfast was served up by Sisters Bruna & Elizabetha and consisted of bread, yogurts, pastries, fruit, meat, and cheese. There was a high-tech coffee maker that made some great coffee and a variety of juices.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and serviced daily, usually while we were eating breakfast.
Everyone was very tender and loving with our little children.
We had access to the beautiful courtyard, which was a nice place to have a takeaway meal.
Elevators to all floors. Chapel for private prayer and mass if a priest is in residence.
WiFi and wired ethernet internet kept our devices ready to go.
The location can't be beaten. We were walking distance to most Roman attractions and only a stone's throw to many bus lines. In addition, there was a little supermarket and pharmacy on the same street.

To stay at the convent is wonderful, the peace and solitude of the beautiful courtyard where one can sit under the arcading is so memorable, and the staff are delightful. As others have noted, an adequate breakfast and clean en-suite simple rooms. Not only is the site historic, built on a Roman temple, it is perfect for visiting other sites nearby.

What a great place to stay at when visiting Rome! The location was within easy walking distance to the Colosseum, the Forum and the Pantheon. We found many great restaurants near by also. The staff and the Sisters that run the hotel were delightful and the history of this building is amazing. Great value, and we would definitely stay here again!

I loved my stay at Casa Santa Lucia Filippini. The location is near every place my friend and I wanted to visit. The room was clean and simple and the staff was friendly and very helpful. That's all I need in a travel accommodation. If i'm lucky enough to return to Rome, I will definitely stay there again.

A wonderful hotel centrally located near the Pantheon and Colosseum. The staff was wonderful and took the time to share the history of the building! The accommodations were simple but more then adequate and the overall value was high.

When traveling, I expect a few things: cleanliness, hospitality, and wi-fi, after that it is all gravy. I prefer small, intimate accommodations near transportation, and, preferably, a breakfast. Casa Santa Lucia Filippini suited me perfectly: I had a small, simple room (although I was offered a larger one once a group had moved on, an offer I refused), a single bed, a desk and an armoire with hanging and shelving options. The bathroom was small and very clean, as was the room overall. The breakfast was minimal but met my needs: coffee/tea, yogurt, cereal, toast, cornet and such. I would have preferred a choice of fresh fruit, but I was able to get some bananas at the nearby store so I was happy. I must mention the ease of movement from this location: using a six day bus pass, I was able to get to every location I desired. The large Argentina bus hub is three to five minutes away. On foot, the hotel is ideally located, I walked to Trastevere and, had I a bit more energy could have walked to the Vatican. The front desk staff must be recognized for their outstanding friendliness and helpfulness. Finally, I have to say that as a woman traveling alone, I met other women with whom to chat, trade tips, and share a dinner; I felt safe and happy. PS Please remember a small tip to the cleaning person is always appropriate.

I stayed here for four nights while I was in town for a conference. I was looking for something right in Rome and inexpensive and this fit the bill perfectly. Check- in was very easy and I had originally been given two twin beds and it was changed right away. The women at the front desk were lovely, helpful and spoke a bit of English as well. The location is great but you may want to bring ear plugs because it was loud at night.

The room had 1 double bed that was a bit too hard for my personal liking, a desk, closet, and bathroom. It was fine for me because a I was only sleeping here and it was pretty much what I expected. It was very clean and the AC was nice and cold. The bathroom is fine- again very basic and my only real issue was the shower was tiny. There was very good water pressure and temperatures of water though. The bed was made daily and the room was cleaned up as well.

The breakfast included with the room rate is toast, croissants, Nutella, yogurts, and coffee. It's basic- what one might expect here.

The wifi worked well and I had no issues as some others stated. Perhaps it was the room I was in.

As a woman traveling alone and looking for something inexpensive this was perfect. I would do it again.

We walked from the station, termini, it takes about 25 minutes to here.

The room was hard floor, 3 single beds ( 3 of us staying), a tv, wardrobe and desk. An en-suite bathroom had a shower, sink, wc and bidet. It was spacious.

There was also a hairdryer in the room.

The hotel is across the road from the Jewish ghetto area, and 10 mins walk ish to campo de fiori for drinks and eating. In other directions, it is 10 mins ish to the pantheon and similar to the roman forum.

There was a receptionist from morning til about 9pm, then nuns covering reception til 12. After that, you needed to buzz the door to get it.

Breakfast was buffet style, croissants, bread, cheese , pre-packed crackers and jams, juices and a coffee machine.

It is on a main road with a tram outside- convenient for public transport ( although you don't really need that in rome, as it's very easy to walk around) - but be aware that it goes on until late and starts early. There can also be sirens at any time.

It is a safe area, close to the main sites and an excellent base for exploring.

If someone could promise me that all monasteries would be as good as this one was, I'd never stay in another hotel again (provided a stay in a monastery was an option). The location was perfect - close to public transportation, restaurants, Jewish Ghetto, Trastevere, Piazza Navona, Colosseum and Forum, Pantheon, countless churches, Termini station, amazing gelato, tasty cappuccino, Campo di Fiori, the Vatican, the Spanish Steps....all of it.
The sisters were lovely. They spoke very little english, but communicating with them never seemed challenging or difficult. The other staff members were also lovely - very helpful, gracious and kind.
The room was perfect. Sure - the shower was small, but at least it existed! And yes, there was noise from the street, but if you're like me, you're not going to let some street noise keep you awake after spending the entire day walking around the streets of Rome!
The breakfasts were perfect. Bread, croissants, jam, nutella, water, juice, cereal, milk, yogurt, cheese, meat, and a giant beverage machine for an espresso, cappuccino, latte, etc.
I have every intention of returning to Rome someday, and can't imagine staying anywhere else.
