The Suore di S. Elisabetta may enforce a curfew, but its spare guest rooms are tidy and comfortable—and it's not everyday you get to sleep in a Roman convent!
Pros: Unique setting. Clean and affordable. Historic building. Great location near Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore
Cons: Strict curfew. No Wi-Fi.
The friendly nuns of the Suore di S. Elisabetta open 45 guest rooms in their convent to anyone who doesn't mind a curfew (or sleeping under a crucifix). Originally a 16th-century palace, this nunnery is located just south of the Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore. We'd call it one unconventionally good deal!
As one would expect, rooms at the Suore di S Elisabetta are simply furnished, well-kept and super clean. Beds and furniture are modest, and rooms are equipped with telephones. Some upper-floor rooms also offer a balcony. Rooms sleep between one and four guests, and some have private bathrooms while others share facilities.
The hallways of Suore di S. Elisabetta sparkle in a stark kind of way. And, as the entire convent is non-smoking, the rooms and common areas smell fresh. There is also a chapel which guests are welcome, but by no means obliged, to use.
There is a small TV lounge available, but we imagine guests are more inclined to head up to the rooftop terrace and take in sweeping vistas of central Rome and the outlying mountains.
Breakfast, included in the room rate, is served in an ornate room that casts simplicity aside in favor of chandeliers hanging from a spectacular ceiling.
Note that the guesthouse strictly enforces an 11 p.m. curfew.

About the Suore di S Elisabetta neighborhood
Located just south of the main train station, the area surrounding the glorious Santa Maria Maggiore church has a spirit of its own. Close to Termini (but far enough away to feel safe) the Santa Maria Maggiore area is even relatively clean. The area is home to numerous imposing government buildings, as well as twisting streets lined with small restaurants and bars.
