Domus Helena is one of the best religious institution-run guesthouses in Rome. An establishment that breaks away from the stereotypical image of an old nunnery and offers a modern, professional experience in a magnificent renovated building with all the services one expects of a good hotel.

In a central position in Rome, ideal for pilgrims and tourists in general, Domus Helena is managed by sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, an Institution of Pontifical right with presence all over the world which was founded by Sister Hélène de Chappotin de Neuville. The Institution is a charitable one and profits from the House are dedicated to its missions across the world.
