We booked this convent based on our guidebook's review and were not too happy with it. I'm not sure if the Irish pub across the street opened up before or after the review but regardless, if your window faces the street you will not get to sleep until well after 2 am and even earplugs didn't keep out all the noise from the pub goers who had to go outside to smoke. At 6:30 am the noise of people walking and talking at normal volume (is that necessary in a hotel at 6:30 am?) down the marble (read echo) hallways with no sound absorption material in sight woke us up as did their doors being pulled shut with a "bang".
It's possible that the pub is no longer there or that you'll get lucky and have a courtyard window and then this convent is a decent place to stay when you are on a budget. The beds were not terribly comfortable though--if you're picky stay elsewhere.
Unique Quality: 11 pm curfew. We almost missed it one night. There is just so much to see at night in Rome that you get carried away.....
Great cafe con latte.
Wide marble staircases and hallways are beautiful.
Directions: Across the street and up a small sidestreet from Santa Maria Maggiore church.
