Min anbefaling på engelsk: Very sweet staff, the people at the reception spoke english very well and were helpful at all time during opening hours. We felt very safe staying at the Casa Il Rosario as you always had to ring the doorbell for them to let you in.

The hotel was a little hard to find, but the location was absolutely perfect, we only walked and was able to reach most of the attractions by feet. The hotel is also placed in an area filled with very hip and small restaurants and cafes, which makes it always possible to grab a bite or get something to drink.

The breakfast was fine, keeping the price of the hotel in mind. As for the room, we paid a little extra to get a room with view over the garden, which was beautiful. Surprisingly there was a very good water pressure in the shower and a real blow dryer! As we visited in the beginning of April it was a little cold and we had a hard time heating up the room during the first two days of our stay, but the last two days the heat was fine. The bed was probably what you can expect from a two-star hotel. The room was very nice, large and clean.

All in all we would definitely stay at this hotel again, it lived up to our expectations and was even a little better than we would have though, when thinking of the price we paid. If you’re looking for a place to stay with the perfect location, nice staff, an okay breakfast, a very nice bathroom and a fine room by the price, then Casa I’m Rosario is where you want to stay!

While raised catholic, these days I am a non-religious person, and I felt welcome and comfortable here. The room was basic like a dormitory (or a convent) and a GREAT value. It was not soft and luxurious and that was fine with me. Location was excellent. WiFi was excellent. The electrical outlets worked fine and charged my iPhone every night. I liked the metal closet, for me it was very stylish, otherwise the furniture was a little worn. The desk clerks were personable and the night clerk helped me with my Italian. I could tell that the tile floor was washed every day. I am 5 foot 10 inches and the twin bed was satisfactory, but the edge was soft. Breakfast was satisfactory, but scrambled eggs would be nice. This was an urban location and noises at odd times are common. I could hear odd fireworks at 11pm and I could hear adorably loud parrots crying. If in Rome I will try to stay here again.

We stayed here for a week and could not fault it. Clean comfortable accommodation and the staff were very welcoming, even allowing us to join their prayers one morning. We were particularly impressed with the ever-smiling "Breakfast Angel" who looked after us during breakfast. The area is very safe with plenty of lovely restaurants and bars a tiny walk away without having to venture far. A friend recommended the place to us and we would unreservedly recommend the hotel to anyone and everyone. Grazie mille!

I have been truly disappointed by the poor cleaning in my room, it has been the first time in my experience that I have found such a poor cleaning at a place run by nuns.
I have found hairs on the floor, on the blanked and in the shower, the bed light was covered by dust, the desk was dirty and sticky in a corner. The only thing that was done was a change of bed sheets and bath towels. Clearly they do not dust, do not use any vacuum cleaner and do not clean properly. I assigned two stars and not one only because the place was safe and in a convenient site. I would not go back and do not recommend this place as it is now.

If you want to say in the wonderful Monti area ultra cheaply, this is the place to be. If you stay here in the summer, be warned that there's no air conditioning, though they do provide fans and you can open windows. My room was over 85 degrees every night during August, so sleep was hard for me even with the fan. I presume they provide heaters during the winter. Breakfast was adequate. The major selling points of this place are location and price. If you want to be in this area but are willing to pay more for much better accommodations, I recommend the Hotel Forum.

Wherever you stay, I recommend eating often at the superb Pizzeria alle Carrette at Via della Madonna dei Monti, 95.

This hotel is run by the Sisters and is basic, but clean, quiet and well appointed. SOme rooms have AC, so if you need that, then ask. Breakfast is basic. This is 5 monutes from the Colosseum, and 10 minutes from Trevi Fountain. It is safe and secure. Staff speaks good english.

I have just returned from a week at this convent.
Location is excellent- walking distance to Colloseum, Trevi fountain, Piazza Venezia. Took me about 35 mins to walk to Vatican but the bus stop is about 10 mins away.
The sisters were wonderful- friendly & chirpy. They speak just a little English.
My single room was small but adequate. No tv. Window opened out onto the internal courtyard (which has nice terraces and chairs provided to sit outside.) Bathroom was fine- no issues.
If you are going to stay in a convent then be prepared for basic fare. No shower gels were provided so bring your own. Also, they don't accept credit cards for payment.
Be aware of the 11pm curfew.
Breakfast consisted of juice, cereal, bread rolls (really good!) with jam, tea/coffee/cappuccino/hot chocolate. The sisters also sell bus tickets & botled water (80c for 1 Liter versus 3Euro in the shops!).
For 45 Euro for a single room in the heart of Rome it is hard to complain provided u don't mind the curfew & no tv in the bedroom.

Via S. Agata dei Goti, 10, Rome 00184, Italy
Email: irodopre@tin.it

The nuns in this convent have traveled to places, so they really know what travelers do need.

I stayed there for three days during the mourning period of the Pope John Paul II. Casa Il Rosario honored my reservation, while some other hotels, I’ve heard, raised their prices because everyone wanted to be in Rome to witness the history.

The price for a single room without bathroom is 38 Euro. I got the room 213, overlooking the courtyard. Overall it is a peaceful place. The bathroom is only two doors away and nobody seemed to use it so I never had to queue up. The shower facilities are good. Two towels are provided per day, not per stay. The place is quite clean. There’s an elevator.

The convent is situated in a small lane. I’ve made much effort in looking for the place. First timers should head to the nearby Via Serpenti, look for a fountain in a piazza, go into the small lane opposite the fountain/piazza, and you’ll see Via Saint Agata dei Goti on your right. You can get confused if you try to reach the place directly from the main streets - Via Cavour or Via Nazionle.

For everyone, the location is good for walking to Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and Piazza Venezia. For walkers, me included, it’s easy to get to Trastevere, the Vatican, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori, Spanish Steps, Trevi, Via del Corso, Via Condotti and Piazza del Popolo. I haven’t tried walking to Santa Maria della Vittoria, the National Museum of Rome, and the Borghese Gallery. I took the metro but I think it’s also possible to walk there.

There’re many restaurants, souvenir shops, groceries, and two internet cafes and international call service operators in the area.

The sisters don’t deal much with travelers. There’re approx three ladies who take care of check-in’s and check-out’s and calling cabs for travelers. They understand both French and Italian but will reply to you in Italian. Some sisters speak good English.

The breakfast is very impressive: one or two types of bread, two choices of juice, three options of cereal, four of nutellas and syrups, five of jams, as well as cheese, fresh milk, yoghurt, latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate, and a couple of more stuff. Breakfast hours are longer than in other convents (7.15-9.00).

I stayed at Il Rosario for an entire week and I found it to be a perfect place to be. My room and private bathroom, while small, was immaculately clean. The location was great, just a short distance from the Coliseum and Piazza Venezia. Easy access to bus lines, the subway and train station. I was even plesantly surprised to find a computer with internet access for checking email -- guests are expected to make a free will offering for its use. The nuns spoke very little English, but they were friendly, very helpful and respected the privacy of guests. This was a great alternative to expensive tourists hotels.

The Sisters were very kind, but we were on the street side and it was extremely noisy throughout the night due to people walking back from the many local restaurants (all of which were really quite good, by the way). You'd definitely want a courtyard room. The beds were particularly uncomfortable. The thing is, despite how amazing the city is, Rome can be hectic and busy, especially during the autumn tourist season, so you really need a comfortable, peaceful place to stay. This may not be it. We also found the location to be not quite central enough. We've stayed in places closer to the center, which made it possible to do late night strools to the Pantheon or Trevi Fountain, and Casa Il Rosario is just a bit too far out of the way for that. Also, the lift was being built/repaired and we had to walk up 4 flights, which was tiresome, but not a big deal -- for us, anyway. Breakfast was ok with coffee from machine (not as bad as it sounds), bread, processed cheese, and yogurt: adequate if not charming.

The cost per night varies. You have to email them to get the price, it depends on time of year and type of room. You give them a credit card number but they don't charge it unless you cancel last minute. They charge you when you arrive.

You can find prices and book on the Casa Il Rosario website. As far as I remember, you'll have to provide your credit card details, but they don't require pre-payment.
