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 un-convent-ionally 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 (and the list of amenities stops there). Rooms sleep between one and four guests and some have private bathrooms while others share facilities.
Hallways sparkle in a stark kind of way. And, as the entire convent is non-smoking, the rooms and common areas smell fresh. The Suore di S. Elisabetta has a chapel which guests are welcome, but by no means obliged, to use.
Simplicity is cast aside in the ornate breakfast room, where chandeliers hang from a spectacular ceiling. Good morning!
There is a small TV lounge, but we imagine guests are more inclined to head up to the rooftop terrace and take in spectacular vistas of central Rome and the outlying mountains. Good afternoon!
And that strictly enforced 11 p.m. curfew will make sure you get a holy night's sleep. Good night!
The retreat is conveniently located near Termini Station and the Cavour Metro stop. Breakfast is included in the room rate.

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.
