Convents in Rome

If you're either on a budget or looking for something a bit different, you might want to consider staying in one of the many convents in Rome that take paying guests. While the accommodation in convents can sometimes be a little Spartan, they are often a pleasant and peaceful place to stay. Some convents only accept catholic guests, and can be booked through your local church, but the majority welcome travellers regardless of religion (you do have to be comfortable with the idea of staying in a strongly catholic environment, though).

One disadvantage of staying in a convent is that they often have curfews (usually around 11pm), so if you are planning to stay out late, they may not be your best option. But if you are looking for somewhere quiet and peaceful and like the idea of ending your evenings with a good book, staying in a Roman convent is certainly worth considering. If you don't speak Italian, consider booking by fax or email rather than calling, as convent receptionists are less likely to speak English than their hotel counterparts.
