“Convent stay in Rome”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

We were looking for more reasonable accommadations in Rome and booked at Convent San Guiseppe Di Cluny Convent. The rooms were good sized, vey clean, included an en suite bathroom and continental breakfast. The Convent facilites and grounds were beautiful and conveniently located near the Collesium and Santa Maria Majore (Church). We found the Sisters to be really helpful despite the language barrier (a few did speak English); gestures helped, but we did not find it any barrier to a great stay. We paid less than 100 Euro per room for our 5 night stay, which was a much better deal than hotels costing about twice as much. We went through a website (MonestaryStay.com) they charged us for one nights stay, we thought asa downpayment to reserve the room. Turned out that was actually a booking fee, so we found out an email address (casaprocura.cluny@tiscali.it) to contact them directly and avoid the booking fee. Loved the gardens, spent a couple of wonderful evenings on the terrace enjoying wine, bread and cheese for dinner.

Room Tip: We just asked for an ensuite bath. They don't have Air Conditioning, but we asaked for a fan an...

We stayed 4 nights at the San Guiseppe convent in Rome. It was a wonderful place, breakfast was light and simple, but so good. The nuns were so sweet and helpful, though they struggled with English, they did their best to help and it always worked out. It was quiet, spotless clean and the courtyard garden was incredible. Rooms were filled with antiques. You can walk to the Coliseum, the train station, really anywhere you want to go, you can walk. Even though they have a 10:30 curfew, they gave us a key to let ourselves in on one night we thought we might be back late. Loved it, highly recommend, we will stay there on our next trip.

Room Tip: The double rooms have two twin beds - deal with it!

We stayed 3 days in this convent. We had had no idea before of staying in convent, until we tried S. Giuseppe di Cluny. I was afraid of feeling uncomfortable during our holiday is Rome. It turns out I was wrong, it was comfy enough for a 86 euro’s room.
It’s clean and neat. The sisters are also nice, though only few of them who are able to speak English. At least Sister Sukoltida is. She is very helpful, and will show you on the map they provide, the best way to get around by bus. Our room called Raphael Room, which is facing towards backyard and houses. The bathroom is spotless. Well I can’t say more about the room. You’d better see the pictures your self.
They have small elevator, enough for 2 people with luggage, I guess. Please note that the curfew is at 10.30 pm. You’d better ask them since we’re there during summer, I’m afraid they will have different policy during winter time.
The location is perfectly placed in a quiet neighborhood. 15 mins walk from Termini. Or if you want you can take the ‘714’ bus. I bought Roma pass from the beginning of my holiday in Rome, so I took the bus to get the maximum use of my pass.
Two blocs away from the convent, is Vittorio Metro station. And along the way to the station, you’ll find mini market and cafes. A self service laundry is also nearby. We did once we arrived in the convent.
Colosseum is also few blocks away, say 10 mins walk. So Colosseum was our first point of interest we visited once we were in Rome.
The breakfast is very basic. They serve continental breakfast from 8am to 9am only. But they have vending machine which you can buy coffee for 60 cent euro or soft drink from … umm didn’t buy soft drink, so I don’t know how much it costs.
A well maintained garden in the first floor is also open for the convent’s guest. If you’re interested in staying in the convent simply email to casaprocura.cluny@tiscali.it , prompt reply will be granted. H ere is the website http://www.casacluny.over-blog.com
